    I get to play the How Much game.
    Maxed out with 18 core, max RAM, maximum drive, and all the optional software and everything else the iMac Pro would cost

    drumroll

    $13,926.

    I’m surprised that was all. We will see what the big new Mac Pro comes in at.

    Anyone got a couple of hundred spare kidneys I can sell on the black market ?

    Then I’d be able to afford a fairly specced out iMac Pro (or as Mr Kheit calls it a iMac Edition)

    What a disgrace. An embarrassment. Totally out-of-touch computing for ‘Pretty Boys’ who get their hardwood because of the ‘5-mm thin design’…. WHAT ABOUT SOMETHING that kicks ass, is upgradable, and is affordable somewhere outside of NYC or Cupertino?

      On another site they used the word “prosumer”. I think that may be more accurate than they realized. It’s not necessarily the upgradeable, modular, machine that people that crank out 8k 3d rendered video all day want. But for the people doing a level below that, this might be a good option. An upgrade from the standard iMac.
