The new Mac Pro is unlike any other workstation. Some have dismissed it as Darth Vader’s dustbin, but not those who’ve seen one up close — they’re too mesmerised by the form and otherworldly mirror-like finish.

Surprisingly, it’s also good value — the entry price of £2500 might seem wallet-busting, but more powerful Mac Pro configurations compare very favourably to DIY Windows-based solutions.
