Apple recently held its annual Worldwide Developers Conference and introduced the world to Mac Pro, Pro Display XDR, MacOS Catalina and an operating system for the iPad called iPadOS.
However what broke the internet was not Apple’s fancy and latest tech, but rather the fact that MacPro and its stand will be sold separately and both at a hefty price.
Here are some of the epic responses of our dearest Twitterati.
Finesse of the Century! 😂😂
Apple is selling the $4,999 pro Display XDR without the stand.

Charging $1000 for a display STAND is the ultimate Apple flex https://t.co/rhST1q76hR

Had a laugh today at Apple. The new Macpro screen comes WITHOUT A STAND. But the monitor stand is $999!!!
They think Apple-only buyers are gullible.
Sadly, they are not wrong.
