And while these same bargain-hunters might be quick to point out how similarly-styled windows PCs, such as HP’s ultra-stylish 27-inch ENVY all-in-one, for example, are considerably less expensive (a fraction of the price!) of Apple’s base-model iMac Pro, Imgur user “squaruss”pointed out in a comparison posted to his account this week that the $5K iMac Pro (specification wise) is actually less expensive than a myriad of similarly-spec’d offerings from “boutique” PC-makers.
iMac Pro vs. Lenovo Workstation
Specification wise, what we know so far about Apple’s base-model iMac Pro is that it will boast the following: an 8-core Intel Xeon processor clocked at an undisclosed speed, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, four USB 3 ports, a single 10-Gig Ethernet port, 1TB of SSD storage, 32 GB of blazingly-fast 2666 MHz ECC RAM, and yet-to-be-released Vega graphics — all bundled up in Apple’s slim and sleek, aluminum unibody design, and complemented by a massive 27-inch 5K retina display.
In comparison, the custom-built Lenovo Workstation outlined in squaruss’ comparison boasts the following: an 8-core Intel Xeon E5-2620 v4 processor, a P910 motherboard with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, 32 GB of 2400 MHz ECC RAM, a Nvidia Quadro M5000 GPU, and two 512GB PCI-E SSD storage drives.
Most notably, the Lenovo configuration specified above, according to the post, would cost just shy of $6,000, with an additional $599.30 in ‘instant savings’ (which is presumed to be for a limited time only), bringing the grand total for the Windows 10-powered PC to $5,393.70.
Worth noting is how at that price, the Lenovo model doesn’t even include a display — let alone an eye-popping 5K display like Apple’s iMac Pro. Squaruss went ahead and did the math for us, though, coupling the system with one of DELL’s 27-inch UP2715K Widescreen 5K monitors, which in itself will run you an additional $1,969.99 — enough to buy yourself an additional base-model 5K iMac, and bringing the total cost to around $7,360.

And if you were thinking that maybe you’d be able to configure a white box, custom gaming PC rig for much less than that — think again, according to AppleInsider, who scoured the web and found a variety of comparable “boutique” PCs boasting similar configurations, which ranged in price from $5,225 to over $8,250, depending on the model.
Now the iMac Pro doesn’t seem like such a bad deal after all, does it? What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
