    People who claim it’s overpriced are either clueless or haters. It is silly to compare this to consumer hardware, price-wise (you don’t need Xeon and extra PCIX? Good for you - but this machine is for people who need them). Also, this is the most powerful hardware that runs macOS. For people who need it.

    This is a great machine, but is probably too late - Apple pushed too many customers away with their software policies (Final Cut update, Aperture discontinuation)

      Probably some server grade SSD with ridiculous warranty and such.

    “The new Mac Pro is launching this fall with a starting price of $5,999. That’s with a spec vastly below its maxed out exciting new features: you get 32GB of memory, an octa-core Intel Xeon CPU, Radeon Pro 580X graphics, and a 256GB SSD.”

    256 GB SSD? wtf, SSD prices have plummeted now.. a 256 is literally worth $20

    Shops who use editing software like after effects, maya etc

    Would appreciate it because they were still on the old one.

    In the cloud world you just provision a big beefy vm and shut it down once they don’t need it.

    Studios will even drop a 1k on that stand as well
