Researcher David Imel, who works for Marques Brownlee’s YouTube channel, has posted the rounds online, discovering the tiny – almost terrifying – amount that is being returned by an Apple to replace one Mac Pro The original value is $52,000.
When researching, David wanted to know how much Apple itself would pay if the channel traded in the $52,199 Mac Pro they use in the office. So after checking out the computer with an Intel Xeon W processor, two powerful Radeon Pro W6800X graphics cards, and 1.5TB of DDR4 RAM, he was surprised to find that The amount that Apple returns is not even four figures!
Yes, if someone decides to return the $52,000 Mac Pro to Apple, the amount they will get back is Only $970! In the eyes of the American giant, the value of the computer decreased by 98% and the amount returned in the gift card Not even enough for someone to buy the new iPhone 14 Pro or the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
Fun fact: If you drop off a 4-year-old Mac Pro worth $50,000+ at Apple’s trade-in site, you won’t even get enough credit to buy an iPhone 14 Pro https://t.co/CzPzoymWAa

In case you didn’t know, the latest Mac Pro was unveiled at WWDC 2019 and released shortly after that year. Aimed at professionals, such as 3D artists, musicians, and video editors, this computer starts at $5,999. The product has not been discontinued and is still being sold normally on the official Apple page at the same price.
Of course, David’s discovery did not go unnoticed by the community, with many social media users pointing out that Apple’s replacement prices for its products are outrageous.
This is brutal:
16-inch MacBook Pro M1 Max 10-Core CPU, 24-Core GPU (Late 2021) 4TB SSD
Apple Trade In: $720 CAD ($540 USD).
