    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?

    I was going to get the base level MacBook air but I think I'll just get this stand instead.

      Another reason why Apple didn't use Threadripper is probably because AMD currently doesn't have access to thunderbolt 3

            Why make an iMac Pro competitor is interior expandability. External Video cars and using Thunderbolt just didn't bring out the type of specialised cards that Apple hoped even with high end pro laptops on sale. As for Apple display pricing many users will just connect their existing high end screens. Apple never made much cash from displays unless you wanted everything Apple.

              I've so wanted a new mac pro like this but defo waiting on buying one to see what would be the better one to buy as the price of the stand is a bit much so I would rather kno what would be the best option before I go all out and throw money down on one

                    The mac pro, mac pro display,and the mac pro stand is really not used for normal use, when apple did a presentation on what the mac pro can do, its really used by PROS ,almost all pros know that OTHER PRO DISPLAYS AND STANDS ARE SOLD SEPARATELY, BECAUSE DEPENDING ON YOUR WORK, YOU WILL NEED LANDSCAPE MODE OR PORTRAIT MODE,PLUS, OTHER PRO DISPLAYS AND STANDS IS REALLY EXPENSIVE, BECAUSE THEY ARE MADE TO BE USED BY PROS

                      FUCK APPLE. Apple went FULL RETARD A DECADE AGO. Charging a thousand bucks for a computer stand.......BRILLIANT MOVE. Taking the audio in jack of the flagship G5 back in the day and changing their minds the next model because they realized it was a fuckin stupid idea......BRILLIANT MOVE. Taking the button of the iPod mini back in the day......BRILLIANT MOVE. Not having the ability to expand the memory with a mini sd card on its tablets.......FUCKING DIPSHITS. This company has gone completely STUPID in every way and they wonder why their stock it going in the shitter.

                        well of course an apple consumer would pay for that garbage without second thought. This is the "apple" species, they believe they are at the top, but I would hope so too if i paid for a trashcan

                                People keep saying that compared to other “Pro” system this is a deal

                                The problem begins with thinking other “pro” models isn’t overpriced to an absorbent amount

                                Why would Apple continue throwing there consumers away and replacing them with “pros”

                                Are you seriously going to dump your average Joe? Yea probably these guys are selling a $1k Stand and a low end Cheese Grader for $6k; and charging $1500 for a shitty Phone with a black bar on top. But hey honestly I don’t know what I’m talking about cause Apple makes billions somehow from such expensive shit

                                                  I don't think this is a fair conclusion. I like the thoughts up to the end, however, the maxed out version of the Mac Pro is basically a steal if you are running a Production Company. Same can be said for the "why are the lower end models in existence"...they exist for Music Studios and Data Crunching...neither of which need anything beyond the Radeon Pro 580 graphics chips. So while I enjoyed hearing your thoughts and opinions, I wholeheartedly disagree that these products aren't worth their cost of admission. Even the display...which is literally $20,000 less than comparable displays...that display is basically a steal for consumers "pro consumers". NONE of these products were meant for YOUTUBERS, without question. Almost all you tubers should just drop $2,000 on a 5k iMac and call it the day...these products weren't designed for you tubers and Apple couldn't care less about the youtuber market when it comes to these particular products lol.

                                                  I'm just sharing my thoughts and opinions with you though. I look forward to your hands on review later this year.

                                                    @Nauris Gruduls So fill me in buddy. Usually if you comment on something "well, educated people anyway", and you share your opinion, you follow up with why. So, tell me why I couldn't be more wrong. Point out what I said specifically that led you to that conclusion and the point out what he says that counters my opinion. I'll wait for your reply...

                                                        $750 for a mobo? on the last video the gigabyte mobo costs around $1500 easy and still doesn't have the same io as a Mac Pro. lack 10gbe and no thunderbolt. So much apple hatred that blinds you. Even the $260 for a chassis is not fair, there many pc chassis that are for worst than Mac Pro in build quality that cost way more. There was also no cooling solution cost added to the list. Stay fun, but please be serious with what you say.

Now mac is selling the new mac pro. starting at $ 5,999.00 + tax.We have TWO loaded (late 2013) mac pro's. They do and still have problems but they're only small problems. So Mr. Cook we shall see how your new over priced pro's will perform. No pro from Mac, not this year. JosephObe

It is nice though that you can do upgrades but I don’t like pricing so I will stick to a Windows PC for now.
