There’s a low risk for load shedding on Thursday, according to Eskom, despite the rise in unplanned outages and unavailable capacity. In an update…
Starting at $5999 for the cheapest version, the range-topping machine is a ridiculous beast of a computer, boasting an Intel Xeon heart with 28 processing cores and up to 1.5TB of RAM. And don’t even get us started on the PCIe slots (you get eight of them).
Obviously, you don’t care about those numbers. If you did, you’d be reading Gearburn. Here on Memeburn all we care about is the fact that the new Mac Pro looks like a kitchen utensil.
Can you guess which one?
Let the internet help you.

Twitter users weren’t just upset with the Mac Pro itself. Apple also debuted a $999 screen stand that will support its new 6K monitor.
That Apple Display Stand is $999. It’s a stand, for your $5000 monitor. But the real trick? The display stand adds a headphone jack.

Just imagine buying an Apple monitor stand for $999 when you can get one from Amazon for $20 😂 pic.twitter.com/CPc0nSf8IW

You have to admire the balls on Apple to invent (re-design) both the Desktop Monitor Stand & Wall Mount and charge $999 & $199 respectively for them. pic.twitter.com/Fhys7ln3OC

Either way, we like the design. That said, the world did think that Apple’s previous Mac Pro resembled a trash can, and we can’t disagree with that one.
WWDC 2019 continues through the week.
