    Apple’s WWDC came with a LOT of great announcements, but the new Mac Pro may be the most hotly anticipated in a long time. Was it worth the wait?

    Please realize that Apple doesn't really want to sell you its computers. These computers are so good that they would rather leave them to themselves.
    Unfortunately, they need to sell something to cover their expenses. So just a few percent of those produced go on sale. And every such sale is a tragedy for Apple. So they sell them, but with barely usable and defective keyboards, soldered in RAM/SSD, with just a few ports and with a margin of 200% - to limit sales.

    Ok here’s something, when everyone one booed at the iPhone X pricing, i was like ok fine (it’s still £999 here) And that’s because I live in the UK. Here $999 is £808 which is about what we would pay for a top spec iPhone 7+. Now Apple will increase the pricing for the stand to £1049 because the iPhone 11 pro base is £1049. I mean they charge MORE for less (like Porsche 😉get rekt) and that’s just annoying to us in the UK. Now here’s a reason I can justify the $999 price on the stand, NO ONE legit NO ONE won’t have a vesa mount already (eg colouring people for movies and what not) and yea that’s still $199 but if ya don’t believe me. Fine. I don’t care. Hate on me in the comments. It’s what I think

    Here's my thought - forget the industrial design, think instead of the sheer power, the specs and the target market for this new Mac Pro. Media right? Most likely content creators in film, TV, etc. let's focus on motion graphics professionals. Why would you want to make a computer, where a rather large section motion graphics "professionals" use scripts to actually SLOW DOWN rendering. Then hit their phones while they "wait". I've seen some that actually purposely use SLOW dated computers to do work on. Many graphics "professionals" in general, haven't commanded simple keyboard shortcuts, for all the programs they use, including power-user level proficiency in using the FINDER.
    The macOS Finder is the foundation of getting work done. Use pen tablets like they're writing poems... I look over and dude's like writing love letters dragging and pulling.... So in my view, I actually now question why even go further in power and specs. Most still don't even understand the basic difference between memory and disk. We've passed a threshold, where the computer is TOO powerful and only a scant few will use powerful computers to their fullest, because they've dedicated themselves to growth and learning as much as they can to fully take advantage of the power and get the work DONE. Thanks to Mac Pros and other Windows based super computers.

    Damn that's expensive. Still would take over a Windows machine. Although, with amount of work I've lost and technical issues I've had with Windows, I can see why Apple gets away with charging such a premium for their products.

      dude are you stupid? any idea how much advertising, R&D, licenses and shit cost? not to mention paying all the people that build this stuff and engineer it.
      you can't just add up material. oh and by the way this also pays for all the retail stores and servers and shit.

    • Stanley Smooth
      Stanley Smooth 6 days ago

      Yes, and in fact, there's probably already people making third party stands. This Computer looks Mega worth it if you are super proffesional, but there is no reason that stand should be that price.

    • J K
      J K 11 days ago

      that's what most professionals do. they have vesa mounts. I think the 6000 dollar mac pro and the pro stand are to get money out of the pockets of idiots with too much money.
