Mac Pro 2013 - Upgrade & Repair

Mac Pro 2013

Announced in Late 2013, the new model Mac Pro was a radical departure from the previous tower model. Instead of a large tower workstation with PCI Express expansion and graphics slots and 4 bays for internal 3.5" drives, this new model came in a slim black cylindrical case with a single internal SSD. While the internal SSD blade can be upgraded, large capacity additional storage, and all expansion cards need to be hooked up externally via its Thunderbolt 2 ports. Fundamental to the design was its dual GPU architecture, something Apple was anticipating would become an increasing requirement in the Pro space. However as they later acknowledged, this largely did not come to pass and the tight thermal design of the cylindrical case did not allow Apple to redesign the machine around a more powerful single GPU. This, and increasing migration of previous Mac Pro users to the iMac, is the reasoning given for the 5 year stagnation of the Mac Pro range after this release, and its eventual replacement by a new workstation targeted firmly at the top end of user requirements, the Mac Pro 2019.

We have RAM and upgrades for the internal SSD available for this machine, and provide installation services if needed.

We have experience in repairs on these Macs, and decent access to spare parts.

      • Part Number 

        The MPN (Marketing Part Number), also sometimes called the model number, marketing number, order number or part number. This is the part number under which Apple sold this particular Mac model. Only base configurations have part numbers, while Macs sold with various build to order/configure to order options do not have them. What we consider a single Mac may have multiple part numbers, which may refer to different specifications of RAM, drive size, or case colour that were offered as base options. Part numbers also differ by country or region.

        In modern Macs it is usually an 8 or 9 digit code, with the last 2 characters being "/A" or occasionally "/B". The one or two characters immediately before the "/" depend on country or region - "B" is the UK, "LL" the USA, etc. We represent this portion as "xx".

      • EMC Number 

        EMC numbers cover a narrow group of Macs, or sometimes an individual machine. There are exceptions, but usually models that share an EMC number were released at the same time, and share all attributes apart from minor differences in CPU and other internal components. In a very few cases, Macs of the same model were sold with multiple different EMC numbers.

        The EMC number is usually a 4 digit numerical code, though in a few cases there are additional characters.

      • Model Identifier 

        Model Identifiers often cover a narrow range of Macs. Usually one particular type of Mac, with a specific screen size, released at a particular time. Though in some cases a later revision that is substantially similar, will carry the same Model ID.

        Staring with the Intel Macs released in 2006, Model IDs were in the format MacNameX,Y where MacName is a recognisable Mac model (iMac, MacBookPro etc.), and the X and Y are numbers.

        However in 2022, a couple of years after the ARM switchover, Apple started using the format MacX,Y - the X and Y are numbers, but the "Mac" is the same across different models.

        Old pre-Intel (PowerPC) Macs were almost all PowerMacX,Y or PowerBookX,Y (the exception being the very first iMac, which is: "iMac,1").

      • Model Number 

        Model numbers, also sometimes called family numbers, are an identifier that often cover a fairly wide range of Macs. In cases where the fundamental design of a Mac has remained mostly unchanged, but incremental upgrades have been made to internal components, a single Model Number can cover more than 20 individual Macs, released over several years. Other Model Numbers are unique to a single machine.

        It is usually a 5 character code in the format AXXXX, where the Xs are numerals. Some very old Macs have a Model Number that starts with an "M" rather than "A".
