Think what a beast of a PC one could build for that amount of money...
Let's see if you can make 4 of those exact PC workstations at the same price, without compromises with quality.For sure, $10k buys you a pretty darn powerful PC, and this new Mac Pro is very likely going to cost more than $40 for the most expensive variant.
Hes comparing a computer to a computer, and whats best for what most of the people on this forum intend to use it for. There is nothing special about mac hardware, especially today. It just looks pretty, and you don't have to put it together.If you're making something different and intend to use it differently, then whats the point of comparing or mocking the price?
Did you hear Tesla Roadster will be $200,000? Guess how many sample libraries I can buy with that amount of money....Way more than 4
Mario, don't exaggerate so much! It's more like $6k for a maxed out PCFor sure, $10k buys you a pretty darn powerful PC, and this new Mac Pro is very likely going to cost more than $40 for the most expensive variant.
It's hardly fair to compare an 18 core i9 with non-ECC memory (and 128 GB maxes it out) to a Xeon W system that supports up to 1.5 TB of ECC RAM. Your system is far from "maxed out" relative to the class of workstations we're talking about.
Of course, a $5k PC is just a doorstop without software. Comparing hardware to hardware alone is a false economy.And yes, I would rather spend $10k instead of a $5k PC just to stay within the Mac OS world. But that is me.
