Well, it’s true. From iPhones to Mac Pro, Apple is known to produce some very expensive hardware.
Remember Apple Pro Stand that costs a whopping $999 (₹76,653)? Now, the company has launched something similar and as you might have guessed, it’s not affordable.
With the given price tag, one may think that these kits are something special, but these wheels and feet are simply made from stainless steel.
The website quotes, “Put your Mac Pro on wheels with the Mac Pro Wheels Kit. The custom-designed stainless steel and rubber wheels make it easy to move your Mac Pro around, whether sliding it out from under your desk or across your studio.”
It further adds, “Installation required. A 1/4-inch to 4 mm hex bit is included, but additional tools are necessary. Replacing the Mac Pro feet with wheels adds approximately one inch to the height of the frame.”
After the information broke on the Internet, here’s what people said:

Both kits are available to order in the US, however, it would be interesting to see whether Apple launches them in India.
