Appleís newest desktop computer, the Mac Pro, is available now. It starts at $5,999 but if you want to fully upgrade it, youíll spend $52,199.

And thatís before you even get a screen.

It costs an additional $7,000 to upgrade the standard processor to the most-power 28-core option, which is required for the $15,000 1.5 TB memory upgrade. Youíll spend $10,800 upgrading the graphics, another $1,400 for 4 TB of storage (an 8 TB option is coming soon, so expect to pay even more) and $2,000 for an Apple Afterburner card

That puts you at $52,199, but you can spend another $400 on wheels instead of feet at the bottom so you can move it around. You can also spend another $150 for the Magic Trackpad 2 and Magic Trackpad if you donít want to use the included mouse.

If you want the fancy 32-inch Retina 5K Pro Display XDR screen that Apple sells for the Mac Pro, expect to pay another $4,999, and thatís before the optional $999 Pro stand. (And youíll need the stand unless you want to prop up your new $5,000 monitor against a wall or something.)

If all this sounds insane, donít worry. The Mac Pro isnít a computer for regular users. Instead, itís meant for video, audio and photography professionals who want as much power as possible from an Apple computer. Think Pixar animators, not casual web browsers and emailers. If youíre in that market, you can buy the Mac Pro now with delivery as soon as next week

I used to hate everything Apple but slowly came around when it came to Mac computers. (Will NEVER go iPhone though)

Still, while the computers are very well built they are vastly overpriced.

The only justification I see paying 56k for a computer is if it will last and be cutting edge for 10 years. But lets face it, the average computer life-cycle does not last 10 years.

People will buy this and post videos on Instagram of themselves googling random stuff and watching movies just to show off that they could afford to buy it.

They're smoking crack. The AMD Threadripper already has 32 cores (64 threads) and goes for like 2k. FOH with your bullsh*t apple. I could build something better than this for like 5k. This sh*t is just a Bentley.

I'm 100% positive he didn't pay for that, most likely given as a perk from Apple for promoting and reviewing it.

sometimes in his vid he says he buys the tech he reviews but that could also just be face value to make the viewers think he has no bias or probably doesn't want to look like a hypocrite telling someone to buy something when he got it for free

Maybe, but I highly doubt anyone at his level is buying the tech they review.

All the eyeballs alone on their product with his 10 million followers, pays for itself.

Im sure he makes an M or more a year just off youtube. Plus like the other poster mentioned he probably got it for free for reviewing it.

Most people aren’t getting the maxed version. It’s worth it for companies like Pixar who are working with 8k footage. If you watch the MKBHD video, the speed on the non maxed version is insane.
