It was all going great at Apple’s WWDC meet on Monday. There were new technologies, new operating systems for just about everything, and there was the much-hyped MacPro! But the thing that is the talk of the town – is a monitor stand! And for all the wrong reasons.
Oh Apple, what did you do?
The conference was acquainting the audience with the new Pro Display XDR. Which by the way, is a high-end monitor worth $4,999. Still reasonable, after all, there are so many features it offers, doesn’t it?
But all went numb when it was announced that the stand for the Pro Display was a separate buy for $999! No one knew how to react. Was Apple kidding? Was this a joke? Well, to answer the question, no it was not.
The stand in question is modern in design. It’s even elegant. It can smoothly tilt. But nothing that a stand can do can make it worth $999.
Only Apple can make monitor stands luxurious
