You can preorder your shiny new black cylinder from Apple.com - pricing starts at $3,099CDN+tax with no monitor, keyboard or mouse.
But what's the fun in that?

You can check out the previous generation Mac Pro loaded up (spoiler: it was $12,917.00+tax) and see they're offering more for less, depending on how you feel about having your hard drives internal or external.
I won't be buying one anytime soon but I'll be curious to hear about real world usage for Final Cut Pro - which also saw an update today to 10.1 - and Logic Pro X users.
- Sharp? Really? That's not going to last long on the Apple Store. ↩
