I love how it costs more than 3x as much as better PCs. You can get a SLI dual 4090, threadripper 3990, 16TB storage, 256gb RAM pc for around 15-17k. This, by the way, is far more powerful than a mac pro. But with the fantastic apple tax, now you can add the price of a decent car to your computer before buying it. But be careful, since once you buy it, it is automatically worth below 1000.

In short: Apple fanboys will love it
That may be an overpriced $52,000-53,000 Apple Mac Pro computer but is has an 28-core Intel Xeon W processor (that looks to be the $8198.00 Xeon W-3275M launched in 2019), 1.5 TB of DDR4 ECC memory (that is 12 DIMMS of 128 GB each), 8 TB of SSD storage and 2 Radeon Pro W6800X Duo with 64 GB of VRAM (each costing $5,000 now so a total of $10,000). The PC you have listed is not exactly comparable "apples-to-apples" to the Apple Mac Pro (Threadrippe 3990X that seem to be anything from 5.365 € to 6664 € depending on the country) and a RTX 4090, starting at $1600, is a gaming card with "only" 24 GB VRAM. A more comparable graphics card to a 64GB Radeon Pro W6800X Duo from 2021 would be a $4,650 NVIDIA 48GB RTX A6000.

More gaslighting of the perpetually outraged. The 2019 Mac Pro was, like all the others, offered in a wide range of configurations, which their automated trade-in tool doesn't know (or care) about:

"...the 2019 Mac Pro is available as a tower starting at $5,999 and a rack beginning at $6,499..."

It's also worth nothing that the trade-in credit is good no matter what condition the device is in ... it can be dented, rusted, and fully non-functional, and you'll still get that credit.

Any condition? Hmmm ok, I'll trade mine in then ... its condition is "non-existent"; free $970 for me!

Hope this guy likes sex cause it sounds like he's getting f*cked twice. I guarantee you could've built the same windows system for less than $15,000 in 2019.

How would you have done that if the Xeon W-3275M was $8198 and the two Radeon Pro W6800X Duo $10,000. That's 18,198 just for the CPU and the graphics. I don't even want to know how much 12 DIMMS x 128 GB would cost.

It should be recognized that the Apple computer also uses outdated products. 2019 was 4 years ago.
