So who's dropping 20k on the entry level model with the display and stand. I take it you are all buying one ??.

I'm very interested/intrigued to see what kind of pricing they come up with for NZ. My prediction is $22k (incl. GST) for a base Mac Pro, Pro Display XDR and the XDR stand.

Prices are about as ridiculous as you’d expect. $10k for the base Mac Pro, so @benjip you were pretty much bang on the 22k price guess.

$90k for a fully spec’d Mac Pro and $12k for a monitor and stand

Wow I was off by only $297.

 

It's a "yikes" from me.

$1900 for a monitor stand... come on Apple even for you guys this has got to be a pi$$ take.... But I guess I need one to complement the $600 wheels :)

I'd be really keen if I won lotto...five times in a row. 

 

 

 

In saying that, I don't need to have all that processing power and would be just as happy with a Mac Mini i7and 5K ultrawide monitor...but even that would set me back more than it should through Apple. 

 

But their stuff is so nice and shiny! And it lasts!!!

yeah , but $500 USD (presumably $1000 here) to turn you machine on its side really takes the cake

No, much as I would like to!

 

 

 

I decided it would be unaffordable sans Lotto input, so settled for an iMac Pro, which I like a lot.
