    Apple appears to be sending a set of Mac Pro posters to select journalists with writers at CNET, Dallas Morning News and TidBITS all receiving copies of said posters. The posters feature an image of the Mac Pro’s radical cylindrical design along with the following message:

    It's the computer we were insane to build. The one that turns conventional thinking on its head, then kicks the living $#&% out of it. We challenged all our assumptions. Abandoned our preconceptions. And blew away limitation after limitation. This is the new Mac Pro. It's like no Mac we've created before. And we can't wait to see what you create with it.
    It isn’t a surprise to see something like these posters going out as Apple on occasion sends out promotional materials to members of the press. Earlier this year, the company gave select journalists gift cards featuring 100 handpicked songs to help celebrate the company’s 10th iTunes anniversary and a 5th anniversary App Store poster on a separate occasion as well.

    Originally announced in June, Apple’s redesigned Mac Pro starts at $2,999 and comes in several different configurations. The entry-level version includes a 3.7 GHz quad-core Intel XEON E5 processor, dual AMD FirePro D300 GPUs, 12 GB of memory and 256 GB of PCIe-based flash storage. With configure-to-order options, the Mac Pro can be further customized with an 8-core or 12-core Xeon E5 processor, FirePro D700 GPUs, up to 64 GB of memory and up to 1 TB of flash storage.

    Although Apple hasn’t provided a solid release date for the Mac Pro, it is expected sometime in December.

    Will you be picking one up?
