    For $500 more you get the...Rackintosh... :confused::D:eek:

    Apple provides a rack-mount version of the Mac Pro. It's not really a datacenter proper product, although it could be used that way. It's more a form to fit your own set up where you try to consolidate your project hardware into a rack.

    Why would someone pay EVEN MORE for a Mac Pro? I have one idea...

    Mac Pro case SCREW UP!
    Dec 15, 2019

    248- I think Apple screwed up the Mac Pro case. So much time. So much effort. So many people with their grubby paws on it and they screwed it up. The Dune Case Pro got it right! Can hardly wait to get it.

    Apple is Now Selling Mac Pro Wheels Kit and Feet Kit for $699 and $299
    [​IMG]

    Apple is now selling the wheels and feet separately for the 2019 Mac Pro via individual kits. However, individual kits are pretty expensive as well much like the Mac Pro itself. If you're looking to get them for your machine, you will have to shed a couple of hundred dollars for each. Scroll down for more details on the pricing.

When you're done moving your Mac Pro around, the Rover Pro allows quick and easy conversion back to the factory feet for stationary use.

    I love that apple fans are claiming the Surface Duo is "highway Robbery" when apple ripps them so bad with a 1000.00 monitor stand. Really? a monitor without a stand. Then gouge you 500 bucks, oops, sorry, 499, for a set of wheels for your overpriced desktop. LOVE IT. So, spend that 1400 bucks you would spend on the Surface Duo at apple and get absolutely nothing of any computing value or power.
