Interesting analysis from David Gewirtz on what time does to a price. iMac Pro vs. Original Mac, circa 1984:
No matter how you price it, the new iMac Pro is spendy. Fully-equipped, it pops eyeballs at a nose-bleedingly expensive $13,199. Even the base unit, at $4,999, is pricey. But is the iMac Pro really the most expensive Mac ever?
Nope. Adjust for inflation and the iMac Pro is a bargain.
The original Mac was priced at $2,495 in 1984 dollars. Thirty four years later, that would be $5,919 in present day dollars, accounting for inflation.
The iMac Pro is a bargain.
