Mac Pro Design

2019 Mac Pro

I really like how the Mac Pro looks. The combination of stainless and brushed steel looks great. The machining is very impressive. I hope this design language will trickle down to other products in their lineup.

It's interesting to also compare the industrial design between the lauded (plastic) G4 Cube and the (stainless steel) Mac Pro. Apple has come a long way.
