The brand new Mac Pro is finally available to buy and while it starts out at $5,999, it can quickly rise in price to astronomical figures. And let’s just get this out of the way, you don’t need it.

While it starts at $5,999, the full-fat version tips the scale at over $50,000. Yowzers. That won’t even be the highest price, as Apple has plans to bring an 8TB storage option out as well as some new Pro graphics cards. Again, you don’t need it.

Here’s a list of things you could buy instead for that cash:

I mean, any of these are fine options but we all know that the people who need the Mac Pro’s speed will buy it anyway. That’s what business accounts are for, right?
