    Ah, yes. A reasonable price to pay for a computer

    @freshHeir Every now and then I like to check out what I can do with fancy workstation configurations. A few years ago I maxed out a Falcon Northwest with Nvidia Tesla cards and the price was over $50,000. It also qualified as a desktop super computer (in terms of tera-FLOPS) so I didn't think it was an unreasonable price, but I probably wouldn't want a workstation that loaded, because it's too portable for the price. (Easy to walk away from where it's supposed to be.)

    @freshHeir Now I'm not trying to say that the new Mac Pro is going to be anything like what I described, just that I have gotten other computer configurations to similar prices and didn't say "that's unreasonable."

    😰!

    Seriously asking, Which particular use case by anyone would require such a high performing machine?

    Heck you can create a mini supercomputer at that price range. for analysis of gigantic data sets.

    @ArchLinux you need a very big chunk of ram and vram if you want to edit 4K or higher footage, and if you go into CAD stuff you can easily run out of power. I've seen at a local company here workstations that cost 20k upwards and they still sometimes have to sit there and wait for stuff to calculate. They bought RAM upgrades recently so every station now runs on 128GB, and that sometimes gets maxed out.

    @EdoPhoenix

    The comparison here is that for this Mac, the RAM is a whopping 1.5 TBs! That's insane compared to 128 GBs
