In what universe?
So Apple came out with a new Mac. Starting price is just under six grand. Starting. And if you want 2 monitors, the stand costs 1000 bucks. I don’t think they offer more than 2.
In 2017, a lightning strike hit near my house. Fried the motherboard on a PC, took out my monitor, and one piece of non-computer-related electronics. So I splurged (a bit) and bought 2 monitors and a monitor stand. Amazon is selling that stand today for $32. There are 4 monitor stands for production environments. And probably more, but 2 works well for me. The basic quad is 50 bucks, and the “fully adjustable” more like $75.
But go ahead and overpay. That’s what Apple is all about.
