Bumuhos ng pambabatikos mula sa mga kritiko at maging ilan sa mga taga-hanga ng Apple, ang kalulunsad pa lamang nitong monitor stand.
Matunog ang bagong produktong ito ngayon hindi dahil sa features nito, kundi dahil lang naman sa halaga nitong $999 o katumbas ng halos P50,000.
Inanunsyo ito sa taunang Worldwide Developer Conference, kasabay ng iba ring bagong produkto gaya ng Mac Pro desktop na nagkakahalagang $6,000.
Ang stand ay optional naman para sa Pro Display XDR, 32-inch display monitor na nagkakahalagang $4,999.
Ngunit hindi pa rin ito nakaligtas sa mga kritiko at mga pumuna na masyado itong mahal para sa stand, kagaya na lamang ng isang international YouTuber na idinaan sa sarcasm ang opinyon.
Apple conference 2019.
“We have decided ton drop all pretense and start charging you mouth breathing idiots the most outrageous prices imaginable. 1000 bucks for monitor stand and 35k for a new machine.
Eat shit you contemptible fucks. Give us your money.”

Marami naman ang sumang-ayon at nakiisa sa thread na ito.
These prices are so outrageous, I don’t think anyone is happy about them – regardless of race. Apple is an equal opportunity customer ripper-offerer.

I’m looking for the most respectful way to tell them to SMD. 12 years and 50K later, I think switching to PC will finally do the trick. Goodbye apple, you clearly died with Steve

Habang, mayroon pa rin namang mga nagtanggol sa produkto at ikinatwiran na mga “high level professionals” ang target nito.
I think you are missing the target demographic for the Mac Pro… high level Pros. I fully understand that I will most likely never buy a machine of that caliber, and it’s okay, but for Professionals who have the money to spend, it’s barely a drop in the bucket.

These are not consumer goods
I know you’re trying to be funny, but if you think those particular products are overpriced you need to take a better look at the workstation market.
