    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.

      Using AMD CPUs either the Epyc or Threadripper class would have made this machine *much* less expensive. Xeon prices just don't make sense anymore and the performance is not there.

      @CarthagoMike All workstation grade stuff has this crazy markup. I looked at an HP workstation that can have a dual CPU setup, and they want like 50% over Intel's MSRP for them.

    There’s nothing “pro” about the base model. It, I think, is an attempt to keep the base price under $10,000.

    Isn't $12.000 just the base price ?
    For music production I would never buy a mac. I have an Hp from 2009 that I produce all my stuff on loaded with 32Gb of vst plugins and I use the same machine to game and do photography on.
    In fact I have several old computers lying around and all work perfectly. For that much money I could buy a really good up to date gaming/music production/art creation rig and still have $9.000

    Honestly, charging an insane premium for a "workstation cpu" when the only feature it has over any other cpu is ECC memory is insane in 2019. AMD's whole product line supports ECC, and intel's could too if they just didn't keep disabling it to sell more expensive stuff.

    That doesn't justify the 1000 stand I can build a decent pc with that 1000

      I think I’ve said this a few times.. the stand is optional. An Ergotron arm will do a better job, at a third of the price. Apple isn’t forcing anyone to buy it.

    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.

    $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.

  • RedRoscoe61

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

  • RedRoscoe61

    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.
