If you're not a Pro, spouse approval sold separately.

It's so strange, almost unnatural, to see Mac Pro news/articles on the front page. I'm getting flashbacks of better days gone by.

Nice. The machine pros asked for, and got (finally). Yeah it’s more expensive, but much better and more expandable than the $4,000 8-core Apple currently sells.

Pros who use the 2019 Mac Pro to generate revenue will be able to afford the extra $50/month.

Not all the pros. In motion graphics, VFX and 3D animation it's pretty shocking. The CPU is impressive but the base model comes with the same GPU as a regular iMac. The storage is laughable - 256GB for the base model in 2019?

Without Nvidia support, a lot of people will ignore it.
