As of December 10, we can finally start to order a Mac Pro, Apple's latest monster computer. Of course, just like every other Apple product, if you want to have it in the "full" way, you have to sacrifice a lot of money.
If we should take a look at the prices of Apple with all the extra features, it costs around $53,247.98. I mean, all the things you can do with this money, woah, right? What are these extra features that make it this expensive then?
With a 2.5GHz 28-core Intel Xeon W processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.4GHz, 1.5 TB of DDR4 ECC memory, two Radeon Pro Vega II Duo with 2x32GB of HBM2 memory each, 4TB SSD storage, Apple Afterburner card, stainless steel frame with wheels, magic mouse 2 and magic trackpad 2, final cut pro X and logic pro X, long story short, with the best qualities you can have it, it costs around $53k.
Of course, it's kind of crazy to spend this much of money on a computer, but I mean, some of us need the best of the best. But let's say you have this much money, what else could you buy with it?
Here are some things and how many of them you would be able to buy with $53,247.98.
1. 1 Cybertruck
You know the latest and maybe the greatest, but obviously the most ground-breaking vehicle of Elon Musk. And actually, this wild truck only costs $39,900. So with $53,247.98, you could buy a Cybertruck and save $13,348, and then maybe with this money, you could buy a different and more affordable computer. Of course, the choice is up to you, but how crazy is that we live in an age where a computer is more expensive than a truck?
2. 36 iPhone 11 Pro Max
Yeah, instead of buying only one Mac Pro, you can buy 36 iPhone 11 Pro Maxes, with the best and highest qualities it can have; for example, a 512GB of capacity. I mean, who needs a computer when you have the best smartphone out there? Unless you're a graphic designer, or a computer engineer, or an accountant, or... okay simply and nearly everyone needs a computer but maybe a cheaper one?
3. 3330 months of Netflix Subscription
Well, it's crazy because, with the money you can buy a Mac Pro, you can actually have 3330 months or 277 years of Netflix subscription instead. So just by having a simpler and cheaper computer, a smart TV, or a smartphone, you can enjoy watching your most favorite series anywhere you want, thanks to Netflix.
Of course, priorities change from person to person, but if you're sick of looking at a computer at your regular 9 to 5 job and if the only thing that makes you happy and relieved at the end of the day, other than your loved ones, of course, is to watch your favorite TV show or a good movie, then maybe you should go for this 277 years of Netflix subscription, which could also be a good legacy for your kids and grandkids.
4. 12,830 Venti Coffee Latte at Starbucks
You can buy 12.830 lattes from Starbucks with the price of a Mac Pro. This means that you can actually buy a venti size latte every day for 35 years. For those who can't wake up without having their morning coffee will understand the importance of this number. Maybe if you can sacrifice your morning latte and save the money you'd buy a latte with, you can buy a Mac Pro in the future, around 35 years later. Probably it'll be vintage then, but who doesn't like vintage?
5. 13 Razer Blade 15
Razer Blade is one of the coolest computers in the market right now, and Razer Blade 15, with its fullest capacity, highest and best features, it only costs $3,999.99. Which is 13 times cheaper than the new Mac Pro. So, you can buy 13 Razer Blade 15s with the price of a Mac Pro, and you can make not only yourself but also your friends and loved ones happy with this monstrous laptop.
6. 1 1960 Cessna 172A Aircraft
What if I tell you that you can actually buy a vintage plane instead of buying a Mac Pro. It's an aircraft of the old aviation corporation Cessna. So only for $42,750, which is $10,497.98 less expensive than Mac Pro, you can have your own plane, how much cooler can you get!
7. 1 Four Winns Horizon 190 Boat
Who doesn't like to have their own boat to sail, have a relaxing and fun journey out on the sea, spend the best time with their loved ones? And you can actually buy a boat for $49,916 instead of buying a Mac Pro for $53,247.98. A boat can make you happy and soothe you on a sad day; I can hear you saying "A good computer can make me happier!", which is also true, but I don't think that it'd be possible to be happy after spending $53,247.98 on a computer.
8. A Quarter of The $120K Banana
You probably know the banana which was duct-taped to a wall, sold for $120,000 at Art Basel Miami. Well, you can't even buy half of this banana with $53,247.98 but you can buy a quarter of it! Then you can taste the most expensive banana in the world, which is most probably not so different from any other banana in the world; but it's a capitalist time we're living in and everyone likes to show off. So maybe instead of buying a computer, you can buy a quarter of a banana, yummy!
