It features a cheese grater-like design, and the base option comes with an 8-core Intel processor and 256 GB of storage, with upgrades available up to 28-core Intel and 1.5 TB of ECC memory. To add the 1.5 TB option to your basket, you'd need to set aside another $25,000.

Not for this kind of money. You could pay your vehicle off with that kind of cash

I wouldn't either myself, lol! What features does it have that others don't?

It’s unnecessary to me personally.

With these parts, the machine should cost way less than it does. For example, they claim that 1.5 TB of DDR4 ECC memory is $25,000. The cost is actually around $7,000. They are also claiming a price of $7,000 for a processor that has an MSRP of around $2,000. With Apple, you're always paying for the name. Apple seems to be sort of a status symbol for rich people when you could get a much faster PC for a fraction of the price.

This is why, when it comes to buying electronics in general, I always go for the cheaper, yet still fairly well known brands. Personally I don't care about brands in general. As long as I can afford it and it does what it's supposed to do, then I'm happy

Of course I wouldn't. But we are not really the target group either. For professionals in larger corporations, especially within media, graphic design, video and audio, it miiiight be worth it. I can't really understand those companies who decide to order the Mac Pro instead of an equally powerful but cheaper model from another brand, but maybe it's a way for such companies to flex their cash muscles.
