Ban-dodging Mac Pro to hit Blighty's shops as Apple bows to fan fears

It still looks like a black wastepaper bin, though

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Apple is preparing to release a new version of its high-end Mac Pro computer in Blighty almost a year after Eurocrats banned the sale of a previous model.

A shipping date has been set for the new Mac Pro, which is the only fruity computer which allows any sort of upgrading. The Pro is aimed at business customers who need enough oomph to power demanding applications like video editing packages.

The kind-hearted rulers of Europe banned the last Mac Pro model last year because its cooling fan guards didn't meet an updated safety spec issued by the International Electrotechnical Commission. It also fell foul of rules on the protection of electrical ports.

Luckily for the parents of inquisitive toddlers or techies with wandering hands, the new Mac Pro has now been deemed safe enough for world+dog to get computing with.

According to the fruity firm's British website, the high end machine is "built for creativity on an epic scale".

The latest incarnation of the Mac Pro went on sale in the US on 19 December, boasting 64GB of DDR3 memory and a 3.7GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5 CPU. ®
