iMac Pro
When Apple's new iMac Pro was unveiled this summer, two things were clear: It was a beast, and it was expensive.

With the space-gray iMac Pro finally launched, the new computer lives up to both of these expectations. Capable of sporting up to 18 cores and 22 teraflops of graphics performance, the iMac starts at a whopping US$ 4,999.

Maintaining the iMac's all-in-one design, the iMac Pro is the first iMac that comes in Apple's popular space-gray finish. Despite its sleek design, Apple was able to pack the iMac Pro with powerful workstation performance.

For US$ 4,999, customers will get a 3.2 GHz 8-core Intel Xeon W processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.2 GHz, 32 GB of ECC (error-correcting code) memory, a 1 TB solid-state drive, and more. But the greatest technological marvel in the iMac is probably its new thermal architecture, which delivers 80% more cooling capacity in the same quiet and thin design the iMac is known for.

Beyond its complex tech specifications, Apple sums up the new iMac Pro in its press release:

"With next-generation processors, a stunning Retina 5K display, the most powerful graphics ever in a Mac, super-fast storage and advanced I/O [input/output], iMac Pro is designed to handle the most demanding pro workflows and is the first all-in-one built from the ground up to deliver true workstation-class performance."
Maxing out the iMac Pro will set customers back more than US$ 13,000.

While most of investors' attention on Apple gravitates toward iPhones, Apple's Mac business is firing on all cylinders. Mac revenue, for instance, hit an all-time high in fiscal 2017, at US$ 25.8 billion. This makes Mac Apple's third-largest segment, behind iPhone and services, and ahead of iPad and "other products."

Furthermore, iMac revenue growth has accelerated recently, climbing 25 percent year over year in Apple's fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 -- the segment's highest growth rate in years.
