Yesterday Apple announced that it is now selling single wheel sets for its Mac Pro – and like the computer it is used for, these are some expensive rims.
If you're like me, you probably think that these bikes are not only expensive, but not worth the money (they don't even have locks that prevent your fancy computer from rolling away), so I decided to look up a few Products that also have four wheels and are significantly cheaper than $ 699 wheels for an Apple computer.
- Four wheels and tires on the tire stand: It's probably not the best idea to drive now, but if you're in the market for new tires and wheels, you should know that sometimes they cost less than buying an optional accessory for a Mac Pro. I went to the tire rack and did a random search and found a wheel and tire bundle for a very typical commuter car for around $ 550. I personally don't own a Toyota Corolla, but if you need new wheels and tires this is a pretty good deal.
- Self-propelled four-wheel lawnmower: You may not need new tires, but you want to cope with the long grass in your garden. You can buy a four-wheel, self-propelled lawnmower that is usually retailed for $ 399, but is available for $ 349. This means that you can purchase two of them for the cost of the Mac Pro bikes.
- Vinyl basket truck: If you move soon and have little staff, this vinyl basket cart will cost $ 230. So you can be a strong, independent mover who doesn't need extra hands to take your things to a new home.
- Jeep Power Wheels: Maybe you don't need any of the previous things I just mentioned. If you have a child, you may want to buy him a new toy, like this battery-powered two-seater jeep for kids that costs $ 309.99 and costs less than half the price of the Mac Pro wheels.
- Pedal go-kart: Do you want to spoil your child, but do not have space for a battery-powered vehicle? No problem, here is a pedal-powered go-kart that is retailed for $ 109.99. In any case, you can put a smile on your child's face.
If you're not interested in wheels, but want something with an Apple logo, you can also buy two iPad Pro Magic keyboards (11-inch or 12.9-inch) for less than the wheel kit, although the 12.9-inch Model presses it close. If you want to update a phone, the recently announced iPhone SE starts at $ 399 and will be released later this month. Instead, you have a complete, brand new iPhone and $ 300 in your pocket.
