These may be some very costly equipment.

What’s in a coloration? 

You should buy an Apple Magic keyboard with a numeric keypad for $129 (£129, AU$179), nevertheless it comes within the firm’s normal shade of silver with white keys. Boring. Actually elegant Mac house owners need the rarest of animals: a space-gray keyboard, trackpad and mouse that solely comes bundled with a $5,000 iMac Professional. For that, they will need to empty their pockets on eBay.

The iMac Professional arrived in mid-December, and since then just a few of the peripherals have popped up on eBay, separated from the unique techniques. An area-gray keyboard bought on Dec. 31 for $285 (£210, AU$360) whereas a set that included a mouse and black lightning cable topped out at $635 (£470, AU$810) on the identical day.

Nevertheless it does not finish there. Boing Boing took observe of a trio of space-gray peripherals, together with a trackpad, that ended on a bid of $1,525 (£1,130, AU$1,945) on Tuesday. You could possibly purchase an entire iMac system for that a lot, although it might include a completely plebeian silver keyboard. 

There’s a twist to that bonkers eBay sale value. The vendor, bfriedland174, relisted the keyboard set Wednesday and instructed me the excessive bidder for the primary public sale turned out to be a scammer. “I believe it is a sample I will be seeing loads of with this area of interest product,” bfriendland174 stated.

There’s a restrict to the insanity. A distinct vendor tried to hawk a space-gray set for $2,499 (half the value of the iMac Professional) and acquired precisely zero bids, so at the least we all know there is a line even space-gray lovers apparently will not cross.
