My initial review of the 2019 Mac Pro! Got some exclusive time with the new Mac Pro which packs up to 28-cores, 1.5TB of RAM and 4 GPUs.

Here’s a breakdown of everything you need to know!

My initial review of the Pro Display XDR! Apple’s new 2019 Mac Pro is no doubt but I’m most excited for Apple’s Pro Display XDR which is a 32-inch 6K HDR Display that pack 1,000 nits of sustained brightness and rivals monitors up to $40,000. Yes, the $999 Apple stand sold separately is inarguably overpriced but even if Apple charged $5,999 and included the stand, it would be a great deal.

MacDailyNews Take: Exactly. It’s need vs. want.

All of those bitching about a $999 display stand are “wanters,” not “needers.” (Plus, they’ve never shopped for high-end production gear, obviously, where a handle for your camera can easily cost more than that.)

  1. For all the talk of this being an out-of-reach dream for most buyers, a little perspective might be in order. The Macintosh SE30, decked out with 4 megs of ram and and 80 meg hard drive, running at 16 MHz, and with a 9″ monochrome display, cost about $6500 in 1989 dollars, about $13,000 in today’s money. Nuf sed.

    1. One of the best decision I ever made was an Apple Lisa in 1983 for $12,200 (over $30,000 today). It turned out to be the linchpin in my one man engineering company.

  2. These are the best, most level headed videos regarding the MacPro and the monitor I’ve seen. Everybody complaining about the stand should go to the last 3 minutes on the monitor review to learn something about reality. And then study market economics to better understand those prices.
