TRYPOPHOBIA TRIGGERED

7 minutes ago

They made a bad call selling the stand separately to bring the monitors price down. If they’d sold the monitor with the Mac, nobody would have mentioned this.

*NEW* iSugarCube! Only $999999999999.99 and the tax is 29% of the price! Its literally a normal sugar cube that is 0.1% sweeter than a normal sugar cube. Did I forget to mention? It has the apple logo engraved into EVERY SINGLE MOLECULE!!!!!!

This monitor is comparable to a 25k monitor from any other manufacturer. 5k is cheap as chips. The people replacing these don't need a matching stand so it reduces the costs. I suspect that due to the low demand the stand will be discontinued pretty swiftly but I genuinely think it's expensive compared to stands but the total package is still 14 thousand dollars less that Anything Comparable.

The monitor stand is so bad, that no one mentions the VESA mount.

Well from my conclusive research, the world is flat. The moon Landing was faked. RGB improves gaming so that means it isn't pointless. SUCK ON THAT ROUNDEARTHERZ.

It’s worth $9.99

The thing is a decent monitor should be $1000, this overly done one for $5000 might be worth it, but when it doesn’t come with a stand, it is completely pointless and really $6000 where Apple is going to aggravate people when they buy this and look for the stand in the boxes and see the extra $1k price, it is a complete joke.

Not to mention the supposed pro version of the monitor for $6k+$1k!

Apple as a brand sells itself to the cult-like fanboys who will basically do anything for a new shinier gizmo. As it increasingly screws over and locks their customers into an expensive planned obsolescence eco-system of ever-increasing bad products Built your own PC, it will cost half as much and be 3 times as powerful. Every product Apple has ever built has the intention and design of further locking people into their eco-system of terrible experiences.

Thank you for making a 3 minute video on something that was painfully obvious to 99% people who have seen the whole fiasco.

You can use $999 just to buy xbox one x ps4 pro or a samsung phone with gear icon x or just a iphone x
