A return to form is what I would call the Mac Pro (Late 2019). Not only does it return to a familiar tower form factor, it also makes a statement as one of the most powerful and beautiful computers on which you can edit. A bounty of configuration options for graphics, memory, storage, and processing means that the new Mac Pro can fit in anywhere, from a freelance videographer/editor's home office to a professional editing studio that handles the latest 8K films from Hollywood.
