MacPro - Some additional Pricing confirmations
on Dec 18, 2013 at 10:14:37 pm

I got a callback from my Apple business rep today and I was able to get some additional pricing info

Note- all this in canadian dollars, which is pretty close to US.

(not including 5% business discount)

8-core, 512 SSD, 32GB RAM, D700s = $6,899
8-core, 512 SSD, 64GB RAM, D700s = $7,699
12-core, 512 SSD, 64GB RAM, D700 = $9,199
12-core, 1TB SSD, 64GB RAM, D700 = $9,699

I also asked about some add-on prices from the 6-core, D500s, $3,999 base config

8-core processor + $2,000
12-core processor + $3,500
D700s + $600

Is that $9699 one maxed out?

Completely and utterly.

$9.000 US?

Wow, there might be some cashish left over for things like a keyboard and mouse!

Probably more like $9,499. The spread on US and CAN prices of Apple products is pretty narrow right now.

Even $9500 would be pretty sweet. That's still under $10k even with AppleCare.

But with no monitors. If Apple surprises us with a 4K display, I'll scream with joy while my wallet will scream in terror!

I hope I don't have buyers remorse but that $2,000 for the 8-core bump is looking like $500 more than I thought and it may not be the best value for me. Unless it's essential for 4K in DaVinci Resolve.

I have another idea though about the PCIe flash memory. If I can manage with the 6-core config and save $2,000, I may go for the 1 terabyte option with the thought that I could use a good portion of that for video and graphics workspace since it is solid state and has a read/write speed of 1.2 and 1 GB/s. With spinning hard disks, you would always want to separate your system disk from scratch space for example because you would be thrashing the arm of the disk drive back and forth. With solid state storage, that thinking may not apply. If not, all video and graphics would be on a Promise RAID and that will be spinning hard disks with a potentially thrashing read/write armature. Or put scratch or other video on another external drive on a separate TB controller I guess.

I feel the same way. I was going for the 8 core if it was reasonably priced but $2000 (probably €2000 here) on top of that premium of $3999,- is just too much. I still can't believe the D700's come at a +$600 only.

Apple has clearly made the CPU the defining factor. You will only be buying 8 or 12 cores if you really really need them… …or you just have way too much money to spend :-) In my case, I guess I'm not pro enough :-D

Oh that's weird - I just checked on the UK store and it was up again, momentarily. Long enough to get a price on a maxed out one here - and it was £7,749. It's down again now, which is probably just as well.

It feels like Christmas morning going through the configurator :)

And the only fruitcake is having to lower 3 x 8-cores down to 6-core to make space for 3 x 12-cores ;)

We misinterpreted the upgrade at $2,000. That is the cost of 8-core moving up from the 4-core base configuration! So just an incremental $1,500 over the 6-core base.
