The Apple Mac Pro is a Hefty $50k, Fully Upgraded


Today you can finally get your order in for the new Apple Mac Pro. For the entry-level set up you’re going to be splashing out $5,999, and to get all the upgrades and tweaks that are available you’re looking at laying out over $50k, before you even buy software or a display to use it all on.

The Mac Pro is no doubt a beast among computers, and when shown off with its $5,000 6K Pro Display XDR monitor, which is now just an accessory, it stole the show at June’s Developer Conference. 2013 was the last time the Mac Pro was revisited and this piece of kit is a major upgrade, and an attempt by Apple to drawback creative industry professionals who have floated over to more powerful Windows machines in the past six years.

Some upgrades that hit your wallet hard include $7,000 to get a top-of-the-range 2.5GHz 28-core Intel Xeon W processor and a Turbo Boost up to 4.4GHz; spending $25,000 will get you 1.5TB (12x128GB) of DDR4 ECC memory storage; and to add wheels to the tower you need to invest $400. If you have a play on the Apple website and select every possible upgrade they offer, before you even add software packages or a screen, you get a price tag of $52,748. 

To bring that into reality, if you want to buy a new, single-motor Tesla Cybertruck you’d be paying a mere $39,900. There are plenty of other vehicles in the same price bracket, too. 

The price of this kit might make your wallet squeal, but remember it’s designed for professional users rather than the domestic market. You’re not going to find the Intel Xeon processors outside of a professional setting. The memory upgrade that busts the bank balance?  You’ll never find, or even need that in a standard consumer device. The MacBook Air comes with a memory of 8GB as standard, just for comparison.
