Fully-Loaded iMac Pro Will Cost Over US $17,000

As last week’s WWDC, Apple unveiled its ultra high-end iMac Pro, calling it the “most powerful Mac ever made”, which is expected to start shipping in December at a starting price of US $4,999 (or CDN $6,735). However, should you choose to order a maxed-out iMac Pro, it is going to cost you well over US $17,000 (or CDN $22,550), as calculated by the folks over at ZDNet.

IMac Pro

The base iMac Pro, which is nothing short of a beast itself, sports an 8-Core Intel Xeon CPU, 32GB of 2666MHz DDR4 ECC RAM, AMD Radeon Pro Vega 56 GPU with 8GB of HBM2 RAM, and a 10 gigabit Ethernet port. But certain professional users who need all the power they can get, might not settle for the base model.

Here’s how the source did the math:

That $4,999 price is only for the base iMac Pro unit. Apple hasn’t said what a fully-equipped maxed-out machine would cost. Personally, I’m kind of curious (and a little scared). Aren’t you?

I set out to reasonably, accurately price out what we can expect Apple to charge for the highest power computer they’ve ever offered. I won’t keep you in suspense. A maxed-out iMac Pro will probably set you back about $17,324.

  • The base iMac Pro is $4,999
  • Going from 8 to 18 CPU cores will be $3,987
  • Going from 32GB to 128GB RAM will be $2,691
  • Going from 8GB to 16GB high-bandwidth video RAM will be $2,044
  • Going from 1TB flash storage to 4TB will be $3,603

Thoughts, anyone?
