Apple says both kits come with a quarter-inch to 4mm hex, but that “additional tools are necessary” for installation.

Christ almighty. For that much, Apple should send someone to your house to install them for you!

Must be a pricing error. Doesn't make sense.

The Mac Pro is definitely NOT the computer for the rest of us.



It is what it is.

Yeah, $700 is more $ than a set of GODD tires for most cars.

Does to me.

Apple is pretty proud of the wheels, which can be had with the purchase of a MP for $200 less.

If I could afford an MP, the wheels would be a coin toss.

I'd be fine with feet, if they were stylish enough.

Otherwise I'd just make or have a dolly made.



The Mac Pro is definitely NOT the computer for the rest of us.

A point lost on 99.95% of the computer using public.

You, my friend, are a member of a pretty exclusive club.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

You know when people ask a question like, which car would you rather have?
- Ferrari
- Lamborghini
- Mustang
- RS6
- Veyron

Well, to that sort of question I would answer the Veyron. But I would promptly sell it, buy the RS6, then have money for upgrades, tires, repairs, gas, insurance, track days and plenty of cash left over.

The Mac Pro is now in that league. It's like, which computer would you rather have?
- Mac Pro
- iMac Pro
- iMac
- MacBook Pro

I'd get the Mac Pro, then sell it, buy a MacBook Pro and all the trimmings, and put a downpayment on a new house.

I looked at the wheels when buying mine as I wasn't sure how easy it would be to move it around on my floor. I'm glad I decided to pass and save the money. It actually slides easier on my Pergo floor than my old cheese grater. I would have opted for a dolly like I had in my other house if I needed it.

Never mind tires, I've bought reliable used cars for less then that...and drove them for years.

But you get four, not just one. What if you get a flat, can you just buy one wheel?
