I only know of this cause of the memes but the new Apple Monitor which is $4000 comes with the option to buy a special $1000 stand.

YES. A $1000 monitor stand. Are they out their damn minds?

I used to question stuff like this but I can picture people buying these things and showing them off. To me, you have to be really stupid to spend this kind of money on something like this. You can literally get 2 full 4K monitors at amazing quality for less than $1000.

The monitor needs the stand as well. Like why would you sell something like that separate from the product? People need to wake up and understand they are paying for the label, not the parts or technology. You can find way better screens and such for a fraction of the cost with other companies.

If they know they can milk extra money out of their customers, they will. You figure these guys are making $1000 just for a stand when other companies need to sell 4+ competitors to make that kind of cash.

Someone in my family just let their bill go to sign up with another cell company to get a newer iPhone. He didn't pay off the bill either, still owes them $600+ on the phone. I can't help but wonder how many people do this to them and maybe this is why they have such overpriced items.

Apple rips people off. This is no secret. People lie to themselves to justify these purchases. I don't care if people wanna spend this kind of money on something this silly but be honest with yourself. It is a statement buy, not a smart one.

Nicely put and very true. I guess some people are impressed by the Apple logo. To me, I just see someone who is reckless with money and doesn't know about better alternatives.

Hell no! I wouldn't buy this no matter how much I had in the bank. I just buy the budget stuff when it comes to phones and laptops and stuff. No need to drop 1k on a phone.

What is funny about this too is if you wait a year or two, you can get top quality stuff for 50 to 75% off cause technology ages so fast now.
