Dramatic Unboxing of Apple's $700 Mac Pro After-Purchase Wheels Kit

Last month, Apple introduced a Mac Pro Wheels Kit designed for the Mac Pro that adds wheels to the machine after purchase. The kit is priced at $699.


For anyone interested in what it's like to get their hands on the wheels kit, popular YouTuber Unbox Therapy has posted a dramatically staged, tongue-in-cheek unboxing video.

It's an admittedly lengthy watch at 7 minutes and 45 seconds, but its irreverent take on unboxing may appeal to viewers who would balk at the prospect of splashing that much cash on a set of computer wheels.

When adding wheels to the ‌‌Mac Pro‌‌ when making an initial purchase, Apple charges $400, but the standalone kit to be used after purchase is $300 more because the pre-purchase price includes the price of removing the $300 feet.

‌Mac Pro‌‌ users who want to purchase the wheels add-on kit can do so from Apple's online store.

Pure, unadulterated greed.
I spent less money getting a full set of premium brand tyres, delivered, fitted and balanced for less than this for a Honda Accord.

Really not sure what's more pathetic, Apple selling these for 700 bucks or people on here actually defending them.

Wouldn't it be funny if everyone in the world would order a set of wheels from Apple and send it back right away?
