Apple WWDC 2019: Backlash over $1400 computer stand, $7000 screen | news.com.au

@Tyler_Wildman joked: “Debating whether to pay roughly two months of my mortgage or use the same money to buy a F***ING MONITOR STAND FROM APPLE WHAT THE F**K.”

And @MOTE_Games said: “If Apple wants to sell me a stand for $US999 it damn better be able to stop time or something.”

Admittedly, the stand itself is very attractive, sporting a metal aesthetic and magnetically attaching to your Pro Display XDR.

And it allows your screen to tilt to most angles, and even rotate from landscape to portrait mode.

But it’s unclear exactly why Apple is charging around $1426 for a computer stand, which can often be found for as little as $36 online.

It’s also impossible to use a third-party stand with the monitor unless you purchase a VESA mount adaptor.

And that adaptor will cost you $US199 ($AU284) from Apple too — ouch!

The tech giant had already been roasted online over the design of the new desktop computer, with people saying it looks like a “cheese grater”.

The design is actually inspired by an earlier incarnation of the Mac Pro that had a boxlike shape and featured sleek silver handles and matching feet. The mesh “grater” pattern features on the front and back.
