    Apple made this thing for pros. It’s not for “power users”. It’s not for apple enthusiasts.
    It’s for the 0.001% who can’t use a $3000 gaming rig for their workflow.

      If it is for .001% of users, then why announce it at a WWDC keynote? The keynotes are aimed at the general users and Apple employees.

      spend range 3000$ ?
      you can bought =
      - TR4 2920X/2950X
      - Mobo X399 TR4
      - 32 Gigs RAM Dual Channel
      - Radeon VII
      - Air or Water Cooler
      - Good stuff PC Case.

      for Content Creator's that's enough.
      when you working on Mac OS or Linux, radeon VII is good choiche at this moment.

      Gjermund Gusland Thorsen - I dont follow. Why do you need cheesgrater mac lros to fit into racks?

      Babu Fits - I can also see universities buying some. My undergrad inst has labs with all Mac Pros now. I think it will find a market but clearly not for everybody.

              Didn't know what to think when I first saw the new Mac pro but now I'm starting to like it. You can't really say it's ugly since beauty is such a subiective thing. The problem with this though is that professionals don't really care about design, or at least not enough to spend a lot of money on a pretty case. So they better nail the price if they want people to buy it.

                They probably only made ten to see who would buy them or something

                  I have to say though, the display's a pretty good deal when compared to Sony's 4K Resolution $29000 display.

                  Just saying but 12 000 dollar cheese graters aren't worth it. Get one at Coles or something

                    $12,000 is quite cheap for a workstation, I have a $18,500 workstation and it still takes a long time to finish a run, I would very much like to spend over $20,000 on this Mac Pro. My only concern is GPUs without CUDA, some of my programs unfortunately rely on NVIDIA’s library. That monitor is totally useless to me though, my work requires minimum color accuracy.

                      It’s an expensive system and it’s an apple system.
                      So if I took off the apple logo it would only be $999

                          The AMD 3950x is such a disruptive CPU. I bet it's faster than all but the 28 core mac pro. And it can run ECC RAM, Quadros and PCIE4 SSD's. All that and it's 500$ cheaper than the low end 8 core Xeon in the mac pro.

                            Sony offers a similar spec display for $29,000 so you’re saving a lot of money if you go with Apple.

                                TBH I feel like trying to justify this ridicolous pricepoint with the excuse that "it's not for us" is just the new fashion after everybody hated on it (obviously). The only thing this is good for, imo, is showing that the whole concept of "perceived premium quality in premium price" is true.

                                    I really like the vent holes at the front visually but the chrome handles and feet really do not work with the alloy body...The guy who designed the hand held cheese grater was easily as talented as whoever designed the macpro :)

                                        I like how the take away from this video was that in the process of doing this review, Dave was reminded that 2.3M subs and a whole channel of content on youtube doesn't make you a "professional", just a really fancy consumer!

                                          2:05 completely disagree with you it was not intel it was thanks to AMD we are getting so many cores at much lower price if AMD never released their ryzen cpu we would still be getting 4 and 4 core 8 thread cpu for 230 usd and 330 usd

                                                Apple is crazy I bet people could build it cheaper than what they charge to buy it.!

                                                Shopping the Mac Pro and The Display(monitor) 2019 of apple is the craziest thing possible!
                                                Apple designers have a lot of bad design this year.
                                                The Mac Pro design is exactly like a kitchen grate,apple has also been really weak in its display design(In terms of beautiful and stylish).

                                                  I am just looking for a cheap Mac. So when Sidecar comes out i can use it. But the prices all over apples products is really stupid. To high. Guess ill be going hackintosh.

                                                    First of all, people even in the Apple world are calling this frame ugly. Nobody's praising it for it's aesthetics. Secondly, what was the point of this video? Just to tell people that this computer is super expensive, but very powerful, but incredibly expensive, thus not for you?

                                                    This Mac is aimed at big production houses that create videos and audio for masses. You're not it. None of the YouTubers are. Have you seen the keynote at all? An audio creator loaded thousands of tracks at a time into Logic and yet had power to spare. If you do need a powerful Mac you can get iMac Pro. It's not like there is no option for people who need moderately powered Mac.

                                                    I can already see Marques and Jonathan drooling over the Mac Pro and the display. They are at least excited to explore whether this could be their computer. As I see, this Apple bashing has become your thing, and that's what people watch your channel for.

                                                        That's probably how much the rich pay for cheese graters anyway tbh

                                                          Bet you i can build an AMD system that's just as performant for cheaper.

                                                            I think they made these for Nasa tbh

                                                            Edit: the monitor and stuff but not the stand

                                                              The monitor is priced like that for a reason - true 10bit, not this 8+2 FRC that most monitors marketed as 10bit are. True 10 bit displays are really expensive to make, thus the price tag. THAT is why it was compared to professional monitors...
                                                              Obviously, that doesn't justify the price tag of the stand. I'm just saying, the monitor itself isn't really overpriced for what it does and who it's marketed towards, such as colorists.

                                                                For the price of a new Pro optioned for real "power users", you could own an Epyc Rome 64 core with PCIe channels for 8 of those video cards that would easily double the performance of the Mac. You'd also have money left over to buy new Linux or Windows software to replace what you used on the Mac, and buy a nice new car as well.

                                                                      I know apple makes overpriced products. Still good, historically at least, but overpriced. However, a stand priced at 1K? What do you think of your customers? That we are fucking dumb? It is a stand. It doesn’t have anything inside. It’s not tech. It’s just a stand. What the fuck?
