    With the new Mac Pro options still in the chinese labor camps waiting to be assembled and shipped, we're left to wonder a few details of these new machines.

    Because of Apple's history of absolute highway robbery in CTO upgrades, I thought it'd be fun to speculate on how much they'll charge for four expensive hard drives.

    Newegg is charging $5,628 ($1,400 each + shipping) for four kingston 512gb SSD, so I thought $1300-1500ea would be a good starting range.

    EDIT: LOL can't edit poll options, I guess: 1500 x 4 is $6000, not 5600. Originally I was going to do a smaller margin. Fail.

    I'm going to go with $1400 each, as that is what it is for the 512GB SSD in the MBP

    I know how to make insane speed Mac Pro
    replace both opticals with 4x2.5" 512GB SSDs and fill the hard drive slots with them, 12 total giving you RAID 0+1 with 3TB space :eek:
    and a Kingston give up to 180MB/s write...

    Strangely, SSDs seem to be the one thing that Apple don't charge a premium for - at least not here in the UK.

    For the MacBook Pro a 256GB SSD is +£520 - http://store.apple.com/uk/configure/MC024B/A?mco=MTc0Njg5ODI - and the retail price from Crucial is £515 - http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/listmodule/SSD/~2.5-inch Solid State Drive~/list.html

    So the only extra Apple is charging is the cost of the stock 500GB 5400rpm disk that the SSD replaces.

    (If you're comparing these with US prices, bear in mind that they already include VAT (Sales Tax) at 17.5%)

    $7,000 altogether. Apple installs them in their own special way so you have to pay more. ;)
