A Maxed Out Mac Pro Will Cost Over $52,000

With Mac Pro orders now live, pricing for all of the build to order options for the machine are available, giving us an idea of what it's going to cost to get the top of the line upgrades.

Apple lets ‌Mac Pro‌ buyers upgrade the processor, RAM, GPU, and SSD, as well as add an Apple Afterburner card, wheels, and accessories, all of which add to the cost.


Starting with the base ‌Mac Pro‌ with a 3.5GHz Xeon W processor, 32GB RAM, a Radeon Pro 580X with 8GB memory, and 256GB SSD, choosing all available internal hardware upgrades will net you a price of $52,199.

Add to that the $400 wheels, and the price goes up to $52,599. From there, if you tack on the Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2 combo, you can get a maximum price of $52,748.

If you want a maxed out rack mounted ‌Mac Pro‌, expect to pay an additional $500 when that option becomes available, for a total price of $52,848.

If you want to add a Pro Display XDR to your ‌Mac Pro‌, expect to pay $4,999 for the display itself, plus an additional $999 for the stand. Add on an extra $1,000 if you want Apple's special nano-texture glass, for a total display price of $6,998. You can, however, save some cash if you go with a VESA mount, which is priced at just $200.

That means a maxed out ‌Mac Pro‌ with Apple's top of the line specs (minus the rack mount, since that's a niche option) and the best Pro Display XDR will cost just shy of $60,000 at $59,748.

I don't see the problem or why MacRumurs is reporting on this. It's a professional product aimed at a highly professional sector. This incredible piece of creativeness will pay for itself many times over when used in the environments that it is aimed for.

A basic RED 8K camera is 50K upwards - a Phantom camera used for extreme sports film is 100K upwards. That's the industry.
This Mac Pro is the true ultimate. It's the best of the best for the absolute best. Period.
It's not aimed at the MacBook Air customer!

For real though, the “Pro” in the title actually means something (as opposed to Airpods pro which I love lol). For creative professionals, it’s an investment.

Just noticed that SSD is basically $400 per TB. That’s actually very reasonable for what you get.

I wonder if they issue the Apple Card with the kind of credit limit needed to purchase a maxed out version with display? If so, it's a mere $3,333USD per month for 18 months interest free.


Don't forget the 6% off : ) during this holiday season.

Well that's the thing. People were complaining about Apple not using pro to represent something professionals are going to want to use. Now that there is a product that does that people are complaining about the price, as if professional grade hardware is cheap.

No problem with the maximum build out price, it's available if you need it.

The problem is the base price, which could have been more reasonable if they didn't go nuts with the physical design. $400 for a set of casters? The functionality of polished stainless steel could have been accomplished with quality chromoly, for much less cost. They really didn't need to re-implement the cheese grater holes just for an updated "exotic" look (also wonder how much of a dust hassle it will be??).

I'm not saying it should look like the pre-trash can MP, but I think the tremendous drive to create such a marked departure from the last tower shows just how out of touch Apple has become.

I'm not sure if there is a lower cost alternative for the processor that supports less max memory, but still can live in the same socket and motherboard (upgradeable of course).

It just seems to me that they could have done just as good of a job functionally and hit a $3.5K - $4K base price - without - looking like a "putty" colored box.

Other issues aside* - If the base price was $3499 I would have clicked buy already. $3999 would cause me a bit of deliberation, but an eventual WTF moment.

* I'm a developer on the fence about Apple platforms (for a number of other reasons).
