20th Anniversary Mac
The next time you hear someone complain about the Mac Pro’s $5,999 starting price, just show them the 20th Anniversary Mac. Like today’s Mac Pro, the Anniversary Mac was a bespoke device meant for a very specific type of buyer. Specifically, the “executive” market.
Launched in 1998 to the tune of $7,499 (about $11,900 today), the 20th Anniversary Mac featured a custom Bose sound system, and every unit was actually hand-delivered by Apple staff members in suits, arriving in limousines.
