    So pleased that it doesn't suck.



    It's gonna cost an arm and a leg, but by god, 8 PCI slots and some super-fast GPUs, and an optional accelerator card... this is a screamer. It's ugly, but at least you can roll it out of the room and hide it somewhere.



    Now, we'll have to differentiate between old cheesegrater Mac (2006-2013) and the new cheesegrater Mac (2019).

    Let me mull this over... new car or new computer... new car or new computer... decisions, decisions...

    Marc I post this as I have a bit of respect for your opinion (even though you're an industry 1%er ).
    The system was definitely made for people in your space of the industry.

    I'm happy to have the stand separate. I always Vesa mount and have a closet full of Dell monitor stands.

    It sucks a little, quietly to cool itself, but mostly it grates.

    Actually, most workstations are going with arms.
    I have a graveyard of Apple Cinema 30s and 27s stand in the warehouse.
    Creepy I tell ya :)

    Glad they’re not including a stand I almost certainly will never use. While $999 seems stupid for a stand, this is typical Apple in that the thing is machined out of a large hunk of aluminum and nicely finished with that fancy new mechanism for adjusting height/rotation. It probably costs them $300 or more to manufacture each one of those stands. Lots of unnecessary aspects to it, but it’s Apple.

    If Apple made a monitor arm for it, it would probably be an engineering marvel and cost $3500 when the $99 AmazonBasics arm would be 75% as good and serve the needs of 99% of people using the display.
