Apple’s new Mac Pro Wheels Kit is utterly mind-boggling

It's a testament to the ridiculousness of Apple's newly-released Mac Pro Wheels Kit that, in a world where everything is ridiculous right now, it still seems really, really ridiculous. Sure, the wheels might be made of "custom-designed stainless steel and rubber". Sure, they might "make it easy to move your Mac Pro around." But for $699? ridiculous.

The kit, which appeared on Apple's website last week, includes four wheels, an installation guide (which we hope is printed on very high-quality paper) and a 1/4-inch to 4 mm hex bit (a tool, we assume – no doubt solid gold). Adding insult to expensive injury, Apple notes that "additional tools are necessary" for the installation of the wheels.
