So with my first post I’d like to discuss Apple, and their new monster of computing the iMac Pro. Starting at $4,999 it boasts a 5K 27 inch display, 8-Core 3.2GHz Intel Xeon W processor, AMD Radeon Vega 56 graphics processor with 8GB of HBM2 Memory, 32GB of Ram, and 1TB of solid state storage**.
Now this Mac may not be for everyone but the power hungry tech heavy users might beg to differ. I myself drool at this gorgeous piece and would love to drop the money if I an afford it. But I do not want to settle for the bare basic configuration… Let us see how much a spec’d out iMac Pro costs with these following additions!
- 2.3 GHz 18-core Intel Xeon W processor, w/ Turbo Boost up to 4.3GHZ
- 128GB 2666MHz DDR4 ECC Memory (RAM)
- 4 TB SSD for storage
- AMD Radeon Pro Vega with 16GB of HBM2 Memory
So the grand total is $13,199.00!
The cost of this computer is close to the amount of how much my car costs. I myself could quite possibly not need a computer with that much horse power to do what I need for now. Also, I would probably not get a super spec’d out machine but one can dream can they? I would if I could most likely go mid-range if I ever were to buy this. As in the future wherever my job takes me and I need a decent computer to do intensive tasks like edit video, or audio. But still that price tag is ridiculous where you can build your own Windows PC at a FRACTION of the cost.
Now there are actually people in this world that actually bought the iMac Pro with all the top premium features like YouTuber/Apple fanatic iJustine!
