5 Hardware and Accessories to help you Maximize your Mac Pro
It’s undeniable that the refurbished Mac Pro is awesome inside out, despite criticism that it looks like a trash bin. With specs that will make multimedia professionals and graphics enthusiasts swoon, the Mac Pro provides sufficient power to help users effortlessly manage projects and create new ones with ease.
The better news is you can always take it further. In an industry that demands progress and favors competitiveness, the Mac Pro can be hooked to additional accessories to boost its capacity. Did you know it’s possible to daisy-chain up to 42 peripheral devices into a single Mac Pro? Click it to believe it.
Forty-two peripherals seem overwhelming, don’t you think? For now, how about we settle for five to make work just a bit more motivating or manageable?
Create the right connections with Thunderbolt Cables
One of the Mac Pro’s best assets is its reliable data transfer solutions. While the Mac Pro is equipped with USB 3.0 ports to accommodate standard devices and peripherals, its Thunderbolt 2 ports provide a faster and bigger capacity to handle data to and from your external devices.
Connect the Mac Pro to your devices through StarTech White Mini Thunderbolt Cables. Available in a wide variety of lengths and connector heads, these cables provide reliable connectivity for anyone with a Thunderbolt port.
G-Speed: store, access and secure your data
Despite having a built-in hard drive for data, the Mac Pro might still not have enough storage space, especially if you’re working with a handful of media projects, materials, and data. So why not take advantage of a drive that can provide an extension of space for all your data? G-Speed offers a line of Thunderbolt drives to provide reliable performance that complements the Mac Pro.
How about the G-Technology 8TB G-Raid, which features dual Thunderbolt ports that can daisy-chain up to 6 devices and can easily support streams of HDV, DVCPro HD, XDCAM HD, ProRes 422 and uncompressed SD workflows? It’s also pre-configured with RAID 0 to enhance your system performance.
See more and do more with 4K display monitors
Since the Mac Pro provides an optimized system performance for multimedia professionals and enthusiasts, isn’t it only right that you get 4K monitors so you can see all the details you’ll be working with?
View your work differently through the Dell P2815Q 28″ Ultra HD 4K LED Monitor! With an astounding 3840 x 2160 screen resolution, this 4K display monitor can support up to 1.07 billion colors. It also features an adjustable screen that can be rotated according to your preferred orientation – landscape or portrait – giving you a better view of your project. Imagine editing your photos.
Create digital masterpieces with a Wacom Graphic Tablet
Believe me: it’s hard to create graphics and artworks with just a mouse. With a Wacom Graphic Tablet, however, you can take advantage of the Mac Pro’s supreme processing speed to help you start, work on, and (hopefully) finish a new masterpiece.
Combining a colored LCD tablet and innovative pen technology, the Wacom Cintiq 21UX 21″ Interactive Pen Display provides an interactive creative process for artists and enthusiasts to enjoy. Work just like how you draw with pen and paper; except now you do it directly into a digital medium, and, with the Mac Pro backing you up with unbeatable power, you have the capacity to create just about any illustration, design, or work of art that you can think of.
Listen to the exact beats of a perfect tune from Artic Cooling
Every creative professional knows that music can provide the right kind of inspiration and ambiance for motivation. Just open iTunes, or click Spotify and listen to the playlist you’re in the mood for. Sure, the Mac Pro boosts your capacity to work, but remember that it’s also capable of providing you access to music that just might trigger continuous progress. Why don’t you plug in headphones for some sweet beats?
The Arctic Cooling Bluetooth Headphones with Integrated Microphone lets you hear eargasmic audio output if you connect it to the Mac pro via Bluetooth or through the included 3.5mm audio cable. Listen wirelessly so you can freely move around or secure your connectivity through the audio port. Ear cushions make listening comfortable, while media playback controls are integrated into the headphones for easy media handling.
There are more accessories and peripherals to help you maximize the power of the Mac Pro, but, for now, I hope these give you an idea on how to expand your resources. The Mac Pro can go far on its own, the only question is – how would you do it?
