Highly anticipated: Apple's email has been sent and the date is locked: you'll be able to shell out $5,999 for a Mac Pro with 256 GB of storage, $4,999 for a monitor without a stand, and $999 for the stand in question on December 10.

Notably, Apple's annoucement email just said that the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR will be "available to order" on December 10 - given the fact that many users will likely be ordering custom configurations, shipping may take longer, the Verge reported.

The long wait for the Mac Pro is almost over.

This is the first Mac Pro refresh we've seen since 2013 and it's a big one.

The entry-level Mac Pro comes with an 8-core Intel Xeon W processor, 32GB of RAM, and a laughably tiny 256GB SSD. The company first announced the new Mac Pro as well as the Pro Display XDR in June at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference. (Fortunately, Apple is also offering the option of buying a $200 VESA mount.) On the realistic low end, you're already looking at $12,000. Expect those costs to spiral upward if you need a heavy-duty machine, especially if you intend to make the most of that 1.5TB RAM ceiling.

As for Pro Display XDR, it is Apple's newest pro-grade display that offers a 32-inch 6K Retina panel (6016 x 3384p resolution), a super-wide viewing angle, and an aluminum enclosure similar to the Mac Pro. It'll start at $4,999 for a standard model, and $5,999 with nano-texture glass that reduces glare without resorting to a coating.

We're happy the Mac Pro is about to go out to the Apple faithful at least, even though we know it's probably not going to be a wild success in terms of units sold.
