It's truly absurd

A Fully-Loaded Mac Pro Costs Over $50,000

December 10, 2019 Tech By

Today, after being pushed back from an ambiguous “Fall” release date, Apple’s Mac Pro is finally available to order. We’ve known all along that it would be pricey — $5,999 to start, without so much as a monitor included. But now that the store is live we can finally find out how much the more overkill configurations cost and wooo boy.

Not every configuration is available for selection right now. Notably, the rack-mounted model (starting at $6,499 to the tower model’s $5,999), is not yet available. Neither is the option for an 8 TB SSD. But, configured to the highest possible loadout currently available at the time of this writing, you can pay a grand total of $53,247.98 if you want to. Here’s what you get for that total:

  • 2.5GHz 28-core Intel Xeon W processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.4GHz
  • 1.5TB (12x128GB) of DDR4 ECC memory
  • Two Radeon Pro Vega II Duo with 2x32GB of HBM2 memory each
  • 4TB SSD storage
  • Apple Afterburner card
  • Stainless steel frame with wheels
  • Magic Mouse 2 + Magic Trackpad 2
  • Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad – US English
  • Final Cut Pro X
  • Logic Pro X

Without the extra accessories and software, your total can be as low as $52,599.00. Truly, a bargain. Although if you want Pro Display XDR and stand to really trick out your total, expect to drop an additional $13,196.
