Slightly OT: Based on the prices, how much will the Mac Pro (R2D2) Cost?

Based on these prices, I'm really worried about how much the Mac Pro will cost. Direct from the headlines:
DNC organizers say $500K in equipment missing during convention

To sum it up:
"Organizers only list one item actually "stolen." It also happens to be the most expensive on the list, a MacBook Pro laptop, listed at $75,000."

..............and............

"But people behind the convention also allegedly lost a $54,000 Blackberry, a $30,000 iPhone and two iPads worth around $15,000 apiece."


Well, my friends, we're in a world of hurt. My last Mac purchase was in 2008. I did not realize how much things cost these days..... :)

They failed to mention that each device bore three autographs: Steve Jobs, Richard Petty and Elvis.

So those numbers actually make sense.

Guess: $9000 for a 12 core 64GB RAM version.

The last Mac Pro I got in 2009 was about $8000. On top of that was the cost of some external LaCie backup drives and various accessories. This price did not include software ($3500) and monitors ($1000). This setup is still serving me to this day though!

A current top of the line Mac Pro (with 2 GPUs and only one hard drive) runs $8400.
