Apple’s Mac Pro is accessible for acquirement today, and several people have noticed article analytical about it. Namely that, if you choose the actual options during the purchasing process, it will cost you more than a Cybertruck.

The Mac Pro slides in just at the end of 2019, technically accomplishing the company’s affiance to be accessible by the fall. When my aide Napier Lopez appear the aggregation would absolution the Pro this month, he mentioned the rather steep base price — $5,999 — and added, “Expect that price to rise badly as you add adherent components.”

Napier, buddy, you have no idea how right you were.

See, this cheese grater is configurable, and you can build your absolute apparatus during checkout by selecting from a list of accessible components. I called the most big-ticket apparatus because I like to pretend I can afford to boujee sometimes. The final build includes:

  • 2.5GHz 28?core Intel Xeon W processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.4GHz
  • 1.5TB (12x128GB) of DDR4 ECC memory
  • Two Radeon Pro Vega II Duo GPUs with 2x32GB of HBM2 memory each
  • A 4TB SDD
  • Wheels

The price for aggregate sits just under $53,000. Just for shits and giggles, I added the pre-installed Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro X to my build, which bumped the price over $53k.



Honestly, just attractive at the number on my screen kind of scared me. I was just doing this for the purposes of demonstration, but I kept cerebration I could accidentally slam my mouse adjoin the side of my keyboard as the cursor was aerial over the “Continue” button and I’d aback be on the hook for a greater sum than both of my kidneys would fetch.

Funny thing is, this adaptation isn’t even priced to accommodate the lovely adviser — which, I’ll remind y’all, costs $4,999 at minimum, and $5,999 for the adaptation with Nano-texture glass. And the Mac Pro can potentially run of them. At that point, you acutely have more money than you know what to do with, so why not get the $999 adviser stands for all of them?
