Who the hell buys an iMac Pro at Best Buy? People who want snake oil like “Webroot Secure Anywhere”, it seems.

It might be sponsored but it is news. It shows that perhaps Apple didn’t price it right in the first place.

Apple priced it just fine. It shows that the market for this sort of machine is not the sort that would ever even dream of buying it from Best Buy, so they have stock they cannot shift.

OMG! Can’t afford not to take advantage of that deal!

$250.00 is still a discount none the less. If someone was serious in the market for the iMac Pro as it is, this still would be welcomed.

I was hard pressed to be able to afford the machine at $4999, but at $4749.99 I might just be able to do it. :P :D
