That $53,000 for the Mac Pro on the high-end is a lot of money for a computer, but there will be buyers. There doesn't seem to be a lot of discussion about the lower, more practical, workstation price points — which are common to Windows workstations too.
The new Mac Pro can hold up to 1.5 terabytes of memory, but paying Apple's prices for more RAM from the base amount at the time of order can add up to $25,000 to the cost of the workstation. AppleInsider offers some aftermarket upgrades as cheaper alternatives to boost the memory capacity of your new 2019 Mac Pro with a quick DIY upgrade.
Apple's new Mac Pro is the most powerful Mac ever made, and with that power comes extreme heat. To make the Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR function, Apple engineers had to find new ways to handle those temperatures and keep the machine quiet.
Following a start to Mac Pro sales, Apple on Tuesday revamped a dedicated support webpage with new informational assets covering a range of Mac Pro-related topics including the upgrade of system memory, installation of PCIe cards and more.

Apple has still to release certain higher-storage and graphics options, but on pre-order day, the maximum specification 2019 Mac Pro you can buy costs $52,748. Without the screen, or the separate stands for that display. But you can get cash back if you buy with Apple Card.
At the same time as making the Mac Pro available, Apple has started accepting orders for the Pro Display XDR, a high-performance 32-inch display designed for use by professionals in creative industries.
The Afterburner card, an optional add-on for the Mac Pro that helps improve the video-editing experience, is priced at $2,000 when ordered preinstalled in the new modular Mac workstation. And, then, there's the $400 wheels.
Apple has put its new Mac Pro up for order, with the redesigned and modular edition of the high-performance workstation available to buy starting from $5,999, with the first units expected to arrive in late December.
This summer, Apple finally revealed the design and specifications of its new Mac Pro. It's Apple's first significantly updated tower model in a decade, and the first designed from scratch since the imposing aluminum PowerMac G5 originally arrived back in 2003.

The internet lost its mind in June when Apple's VP of hardware engineering John Ternus debuted the company's new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR. For professionals, it was because of the bold new leap Apple was making to support real pro workflows. To content bloggers, it was an outrage that Apple's new $5,000 display dared to ship separately from its bespoke $999 aluminum stand.
