Apple’s $480 Mac Pro Wheels Don’t Lock in Place and Will Roll Away at Ease

Apple’s latest Mac Pro is not for the average consumer, with its top-heavy price tag which maxes out at nearly $64,000 CAD, geared towards those with fat bank accounts (and professionals of course).

One accessory for the Mac Pro tower are wheels for its stainless steel frame, which cost $480 CAD. These wheels have recently been criticized for not locking in place and sliding away too easily.

Tech reviewer Marques Brownlee recently shared on Twitter a video of just how frictionless the wheels are on the Mac Pro. The short clip just shows the Mac Pro on wheels just rolling away by itself.

“#protip don’t get the wheels if you keep this thing on your desk. There’s no locks,” explains Brownlee, known as MKBHD. That would be one expensive drop.

Here’s how Apple describes the wheels for the Mac Pro:

Customise your Mac Pro to have a stainless steel frame with wheels, which is ideal for moving your Mac Pro quickly and easily without having to lift it. Configuring your Mac Pro with wheels makes it about an inch taller than the frame with feet.

Apple sells these wheels for $480 CAD, or $120 CAD per wheel. So. Much. Bespoke-ness. As for a door stop for your precious Mac Pro wheels, you’ll probably need to hit up Amazon.
