A whole room full of stands
I bought a stand, now I dont have money to buy anything to put on it :'(
None of those PC parts are worth the money either
I’m really curious what the fuck is in that stand for Apple to try to justify it being $1000.
I choose [Weasley](https://images.ctfassets.net/bxd3o8b291gf/4kRGmTOvVYmIwsOikwcuUw/8b8f2e4ffcc1a5218bafe615f976abb0/Ron_Weasley_WB_F1_Ron_with_Scabbers_on_shoulder_00393692.jpg?w=1200).
I get it’s a hot meme and all, but the piece of tech this stand is made for is for high end illustrators, companies with big budgets to throw at this nonsense and rich people.
This isn’t meant for you and I. It’s just an extra pull of the udder.
Is this pro stand real and does it actually cost that much?
Let me explain this real slow for everyone.
$1000 stand for $5000 Apple monitor
Apple’s new monitor is meant for professional use, like design and production, NOT GAMING.
Competing monitor products range up to $30,000.
The stand is separate because people in these lines of work often take the monitor from place to place, especially with high price points (don’t want to leave them around).
THE STAND AND MONITOR ARE NOT FOR GAMING. How hard is this to understand?
I dunno. The stand looks pretty interesting. What is it, like 50ft tall?
Oh…we’re here again already?
I’d spend more on the keyboard though
What you talking about lol the apple magic in the stand boost performance by 12 fps and help thermals xd idiot
I’ll take tha Apple stand thanks
Apple customers at this point deserve to be ripped off.
This must be the work of an enemy stand!
New Apple computers no longer come with stands. It’s an optional extra.
I am really curious why people should buy the pro stand. The new display of apple is compatible to the vesa standard. You can use nearly any other stand for the display. And I am pretty sure there will be design matching third party stands for the display.
Fuck Apple, this is a textbook example corporate greed which people will never forget
Time to start selling 100$ knockoff apple monitor stands on Amazon.
What actually *is* that computer tower on the left? I admit, I’m a sucker for rainbow lights catching my interest 😅
How is this different than a $300 t-shirt?
To be fair, that stand is like two stories tall.
yes im sure apple is aiming at the 20 or 30 something casual home pc video game enthusiast market with their thousand dollar professional stand.
Or an Xbox one x, ps4 pro and a switch, although you’d have to get all three on sale.
You know what’s also funny? The $6,000 computer that goes alongside it is also a massive rip off.
For those who don’t know, the entry level 6K computer apple is selling is: 8 core/16thread 14nm CPU, 32GB DDR4 RAM, 256 SSD, Radeon 590X GPU.
I could build a PC with better specifications than this for less than $2,000. That’s a $4,000 mark up on the computer alone, I have no idea how they can possibly justify the outrageous cost for what is effectively a mid-range gaming computer.
Can it hold a flower pot while i save for the rest?
Choosing that PC set up
I just don’t get it why some one would get so butt hurt about any product that they don’t need / buy anyway.
That stand does have it’s market and will sell. Like other Apple products or any products. Hell, there is a market for a damn banana peeler.
Not every computing product has to be for gamers or casual people who use tech on every day life.
There are professional stuff, premium stuff, military grade stuff and the cheap consumer stuff.
Apple is a premium brand with premium price tag.
