So Apple announced their new Mac Pro yesterday. And... Well the base price is $6000 for 8c/16t, 32gb RAM, Radeon Pro 580x(which from what I can tell is an RX 580 that has been customized for Apple) and a 256gb SSD.
So I just want to get out of that way. I know that likely nobody here will buying one. So this is more going to be a discussion about the pricing. I also know this is not targeted at the average consumer.
But with that being said I have never seen such bad pricing before in my life. I mean with $6000 you get this.
And they are also releasing a 6k monitor for $5000. The stand is not included. The stand is $1000...
Anyway. Could somebody explain to me how is this could be considered "reasonable pricing". Again this is not targeted at the average consumer. But what consumer is this targeted at to where this pricing makes sense?
This topic may seen a bit ranty but I am honestly just baffled at the fact that I haven't seen anybody calling apple out on this.
What are your thoughts on this?
EDIT: Also the base model Imac Pro had better specs for cheaper and it cones with a monitor, that actually has a stand.
And the official product page.
