Apple’s $700 Mac Pro Wheels Used on Skateboard, It “Feels Like a Cadillac”
Available with a $700 price tag, Apple’s Mac Pro wheels are ridiculously expensive, but this doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t sell well.
And as it turns out, you don’t have to buy them only to drag your Mac Pro around, but also to build one of the most awkward skateboards of all times.
The skateboard experts at Braille Skateboarding have ordered the Mac Pro wheels to do just that: install them on a skateboard and see how easy it is to install them on a new deck.
Needless to say, installing them isn’t necessarily easy since they weren’t designed for such a purpose, albeit with the right tools, pretty much everything is possible. And as you can see in the video, it all comes down to the available hardware, as the Mac Pro wheels actually face most challenges pretty well.
Apple claims the installation is quite a piece of cake, although it goes without saying this is only valid when a Mac Pro is being used, not a skateboard.
“Installation required. A 1/4-inch to 4 mm hex bit is included, but additional tools are necessary. Replacing the Mac Pro feet with wheels adds approximately one inch to the height of the frame,” Apple says.
At the end of the day, however, the Mac Pro wheels remain the kind of accessory that makes no sense given how expensive it is.
But again, I’m pretty sure that so many people out there would just buy because they’re an Apple product, and this shows how powerful the Apple brand is in the first place. Everything wearing the Apple logo sells like hotcakes, including the Mac Pro wheels.
“Put your Mac Pro on wheels with the Mac Pro Wheels Kit. The custom-designed stainless steel and rubber wheels make it easy to move your Mac Pro around, whether sliding it out from under your desk or across your studio,” Apple proudly says about its expensive wheels.
Unbelievable! This makes the wheels even more expensive than the already-expensive price Apple charges when they are purchased with the Mac Pro!
