Apple began taking orders for its Mac Pro today, and it’s a real wallet buster. While the grater starts at the relatively modest price of $5,999, those who desire its ultimate configuration should be prepared to pay nine times that amount: we’re looking at a whopping $52,247.98 when the configurator is maxed out with the best parts that Apple has to offer, such as Intel’s 2.7 GHz 24-core Xeon W CPU, 1.5 TB of DDR4 ECC RAM, and AMD’s Radeon Pro Vega II Duo.
There are currently four SSD storage options, ranging from the base 256GB to 4TB for what almost seems a reasonable $1,400. The promised 8TB version is not yet available and no pricing is listed. Similarly, there are two further graphics card configurations listed as “coming soon.” Those are a single Radeon Pro W5700X with 16GB of GDDR6 memory or a pair of them. Again, no pricing is available yet.
