10 Ridiculous Uses for Apple’s $1K Monitor Stand


– Hi, I’m Mark Stetson from Mashable. – And I’m Chris Stobbing from PC Mag. – And as some of you may already be aware, Apple just came out
with a Pro Display XDR, and it’s sick! – It’s got a whole bunch of features that we’ve never even seen
on an Apple monitor before, and it’s really set to take
this whole industry by storm. When I say “this industry,”
this is not for consumers. This is a really a pro-sumer
or a production house that’s gonna be buying this monitor. Your Sonys, your Viacoms, your Pixars. They’re gonna be working on this monitor in lieu of a much more expensive monitor which is about $50,000. They start around $30,000,
they go up to $50,000. They’re called “reference monitors.” Reference monitors are
really made for color. They’re really made for
showing the most orange orange or the most red red. You want color accuracy, and that’s why this thing gets so pricey. This is a highly accurate,
highly color-rich monitor that you’re really not
gonna find anywhere else except from the likes of ASUS, which we’ll get into in another video. – Cool, and obviously
that comes with the stand. – You know, you’d think it does. That $5,000 price point does
not include the $1,000 stand. – $1,000 stand? – That’s $1,000 stand. – So, I mean, I don’t know. I mean, when I see a $1,000 stand, for me, I feel like it’s
gotta do something magical. It’s gotta like dance or like
predict the stock market. Like, does it grate cheese? – No, no, Mark, not this time it’s too expensive. – Yeah, this monitor alone is
more expensive than my life. PC Mag isn’t gonna allow me to do anything with this monitor,
especially grate cheese. I’m gonna show you 10 things to do with this $1,000 Pro Stand that have nothing to do with monitors. (upbeat music) – Luke, I am your father. – No, it’s not true! – [Chris] No grating! (man sneezes) – Vroom, vroom! (upbeat music) 1,365, 1,366, 1370. One, two. (jazzy music) Yeah. (breath whooshing) (upbeat music) Land, ho- there’s gotta be
a better way to say that. Wow, I just, I’m in shock. I did not expect this. All my nominees, I thought for sure it was gonna be one of you. You’re all my heroes. I wanna thank Tom and Leroy and my agent. And I, this is so pretty. I should add this to my Tinder profile. I just can’t believe it, it finally happened. Mom, it happened! Well, after 35 hours of testing, we’ve concluded that if you’re
gonna spend $1,000 on this, you might as well just
use it as a monitor stand.
