    Well it’s launched today and part of the fun is max speccing one and seeing what the price is. As predicted it is eye wateringly expensive.

    28 core, 1.5Tb, 2x Pro Vega II, Afterburner card, 4Tb SSD with a triple screen Pro XDR and 3x stands is...

    £66,783 :cool:

    Probably 55 grand of it was taken by the 4tb SSD if Apple's usual pricing for storage is anything to go by

    4TB is +£1260, you can get 4TB from ocuk now for £640, makes you wonder where they get their prices from.

    The maxed out memory adds a ton to the price, like over £22K

    wonder just upgradeable the base spec model is,

    if the cpu upgrade is a goer then i reckon you could max it for well under a third of that 55k top spec price

    I notice that all the ones I've seen on YouTube so far are exactly the same spec so this must be the standard review model Apple are sending out.

    Looking forward to see what @MacRS4 and @EyeDot think of theirs when they buy them ;)

    at the end of the day a 50k editing rig in a professional environment will pay for itself inside 12 months,

    not to mention most places can take 20% off the top line straight away with claiming the vat back

    More than that tbh, it's not for retail kit like that really. I don't pay VAT, get a small business discount and if I buy through the education store first before applying the business discount the bus discount is on the edu discounted price. It's all tax-deductible too so it's out of pre-tax money as it's from my business. As to the 'real' impact on me it's roughly about 45% of the headline price ish.

    For what it's worth I've just bought the 16" MBP, 32Gb, 1Tb RAM unit - UK retail GBP3159 - for.....this, and then got 10% further off on GST. Not sure what the import tax will be to be fair.

    That monitor! Maybe in 5 years some of that tech will have come down into more standard monitor offerings.
