We love Macs. We’ve used them in the office for years. Alan uses Solus – but the rest of us are macOS diehards.
When we watched the unveiling of the new iMac Pro, we got a little excited. All the svelt, reliable and rapid goodness of an iMac but even more powerful, and in a new darker shade too. It’s safe to say we are quite easily pleased.
Then, however, came the price. Starting at a whopping £4,899.00. However you look at it, it’s an expensive computer. Configured with all the upgrades you can spend over £12,500.00 on the latest Cupertino desktop.
We’re not looking at the optional extras today though, just the standard entry-level device. We were wondering, if you’re about to opt for a lovely new iMac Pro – what could you buy instead?
Here are the top 5 suggestions that we came up with
4 standard iMacs
With a more palatable £1049.00 asking price, the 21.5″ iMac might not be quite so impressive – and will be somewhat slower – but you could invite three friends round and have 1 each. Or have one in every room.
Total Price: £4196.
A 14 night Carribean cruise
for two, staying in a suite. Leaving Southampton in October, visiting St. Maarten, US Virgin Isles, Puerto Rico, Haiti and Florida. Definitely a holiday of a lifetime.
Total Price: £3998.
A Bentley Turbo R
Originally owned by Noel Edmonds! Packing a turbocharged 6.75-litre V8 engine, in blue with magnolia leather. You’d always arrive in style and comfort. Even comes with a full service history and MOT until December.
Total Price: £4500.
Using the handy guide from hitched.co.uk – you can plan a whole wedding, including venue, food, clothes, hair, makeup, photographer, flowers, cake, entertainment and even a honeymoon – for £5000. Somewhat below the UK average for last year of £27,161 but still, a day to remember and a chance to ‘reduce your tax bill by between £326 and £844.50 a year’ according to HMRC.
Total Price: £5000.
A Rubix Cube Crystal Clutch by Judith Leiber
From the Spring/Summer collection, this little handbag is sure to draw attention – and, unlike the iMac Pro, you can take it with you every day.
Total Price: £4850.
iMac Pro on order?
That’s our options – quite an eclectic selection. The iMac Pro is still tempting you though, isn’t it?
