Apple's Cylindrical Mac Pro Turns RED For Charity
Regardless of your own personal feelings, the new Mac Pro is an eye-catcher, and if you're really (really!) into the design language, there's another variation you should know about. As Apple has done occasionally in the past, the company is outing a Product (RED) version of its Mac Pro for charity. It looks as if the RED version will be a child of design guru Jony Ive's imagination, and so far, we're seeing that only one will be produced and auctioned off.
Sotheby's estimates place a price tag at around $50,000 on the machine, which is a significant premium over the $2,999 base price on the normal black model. Like any other piece of art, there's always someone willing to pony up, but those with less padded wallets may want to think about buying a normal edition and then pinging ColorWare for modifications.
