Apple’s Mac Pro, the high-end show horse of the company’s desktop line, goes on sale Thursday, restoring some luster to deskbound computers that have been overshadowed by the mobile revolution.

In some ways the Mac Pro, which will be available for pre-order on Apple’s website and Apple stores, is like the fancy haute couture dresses that get walked down the runways of Paris and New York.

At more than $3,000, the sleek machine is more computer than most people need or can afford. But it serves as a showcase for what its creator can do.

The Mac Pro certainly doesn’t look like anything else on the market. It’s a silver and black cylinder and stands just 10 inches tall.
