The great absent: Mac Pro

If there is an absence in terms of desktops is concerned, that of course is the Mac Pro. Apple has promised that next year we will see an update, and has also given us a breakthrough in this keynote with the iMac Pro. is true that it is a beast in all aspects, the iMac Pro is still not enough for those professionals who demand a Mac Pro to Apple.

Another that has not received an update but that resents dying is the Mac mini , Apple has not updated for years and it seems that this will continue to be. Currently it is a good alternative for those who want to enter the world of macOS with a cheap device and already have enough peripherals.
