    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.

        These kind of computer will be used in science labs, studios, advanced game development, so it’s not for the average user. I think it’s a fair price it’s extremely powerful

          Dave, it's not xeon gold 6144 cpu in the base model. It is the underclocked variant of the W-3223 8C CPU which cost 749 USD.
          GPU is radeon 580x an almost two years old low level GPU sold for 150-200 USD.

          As a MP 5.1 user waiting to jump ship to Windows Threadripper machine, this is an outrageous ripoff.

          Please tell me who would actually benefit from this machine? Are you saying that nobody is a professional anymore except for hot shot postproduction houses in Hollywood??? And those guys will definitely NOT use macos but linux or windows machines.

          Nvidia just pulled the plug from MacOS life support machine, no more CUDA on mac, currently there is no production renderer that could utilise OpenCL let alone Apple Metal... etc... etc...

          New MP is not even on the shelves yet and is already outdated.

            Yeah let’s just forget it was Amd with more cores in ryzen that forced intel to increase performance

                          Nice try bro.... but still it needs lot more effort to justify this cheese grater and stand at this price.... i guess the only innovation apple tech left to surprise their customers is the. “Price”.... look at the airpods pro as well...😀

                                  After what I can see you can make a similar computer to the basis model with a 8 core CPU for about 3000 dollar and if you go for less expensive CPU you can make very similar machine for 2000 dollar... Just to bad that it is so hard to get Mackintosh working on PC lately.

                                    Apple have gone even more crazy with greed... 12.000 Dollar for a computer that cost 3000 dollar in components if you build it yourself and 1000 dollar for a 10 dollar display stand. Even the Macbook pro laptops have gone up in price by a huge margin as I did pay 1500 dollar for my 2014 Macbook Pro 15" and now the cheapest 15" cost 2500 Dollar.

                                                    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.

I couldn’t give a fuck if they asked $3000 bucks for the stand. I can buy the adaptor and an ergotron for waaayy cheaper. So I couldn’t give a toss how much they charge. I’m not buying the stand, (or the monitor for that matter, as I don’t need it) so it’s irrelevant. Are you buying the stand? No. So it doesn’t matter. Too many people get their knickers in a knot over what a company charges, when anything is a choice to buy. My current monitor, a BenQ, is fine. I’ll use it till it breaks. Vids like these get people to upgrade when they don’t need to, and put unnecessary strain on our planets resources.
