Apple’s new Mac Pro is now available to order, with the base model priced at $5,999 in the United States. If you would prefer wheels on the computer to roll it around, though, that will cost you an extra $400.
“Customize your Mac Pro to have a stainless steel frame with wheels, which is ideal for moving your Mac Pro quickly and easily without having to lift it,” says Apple. “Configuring your Mac Pro with wheels makes it about an inch taller than the frame with feet.”
Like the optional $999 stand for the Pro Display XDR, the $400 wheels are already raising some eyebrows on Twitter.
