OWC Releases Rover Pro Wheels Kit for Apple Mac Pro: $199 Against Apple's $699

OWC; a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company and one of the world's most respected providers of Memory, External Drives, SSDs, Mac & PC docking solutions and performance upgrade kits reveals the new OWC Rover Pro - a toolless, patent-pending made in the USA design that allows users to add wheels to the 2019 Mac Pro in under two minutes. Factory-finish, matching stainless-steel housings feature 360-degree articulating wheels with non-marring soft rubber tread install and include stops to keep your Mac Pro in place and offer the freedom of mobility when needed.

The OWC Rover Pro is the innovative mobility solution for the 2019 Mac Pro. The patent-pending design enables your Mac Pro to go "wheels on/wheels off" in under two minutes while saving time and money vs the factory wheel kit. No tools, no hassle, no worry: simply place your Mac Pro's factory feet into the Rover Pro's polished stainless-steel housings and secure with a few hand twists. When you're done moving your Mac Pro around, the Rover Pro allows quick and easy conversion back to the factory feet for stationary use.
Smooth, Silent, Safe
Industrial-strength soft rubber tread wheels with 360-degree articulating rotation and low friction bearings let you move your 2019 Mac Pro silently and effortlessly on any surface. Pull it across the studio, rotate it under your desk for convenient port access… the Rover Pro lets you easily put your Mac Pro where you want it while safely preserving your floor's finish.

Stays in Place
The Rover Pro includes wheel stops that prevent any unintended movement. When not in use, the stops conveniently clip to the casters so they're immediately ready to help get the job done wherever you need to with a wheel kit built for rolling and securing a 2019 Mac Pro on any surface.

Highlights
  • Unique: patent-pending made in USA design
  • Fast toolless install: hand tightens in under 2 minutes
  • Highly positional: 360-degree articulating wheels
  • Smooth and silent: non-marking soft rubber tread wheels with low friction bearings
  • Elegant: highly polished stainless-steel matches the Mac Pro
  • Protective: vibration absorbing silicone rubber pad preserves factory feet finish

"The OWC Rover Pro Wheels Kit is one of the most creative accessories we've been able to develop for the 2019 Mac Pro, this is fun with a purpose," said OWC Founder and CEO Larry O'Connor. "Even going beyond the alternative wheel offerings, we are proud to have this made in the USA design to offer our customers another option, one that saves money, is designed for quick and easy installation, and complements their machine. At OWC, we've always been about helping our customers get the most out of whatever machine they are using, inside and out, and for us this is a logical continuation of that mandate."

The OWC Rover Pro is available to order now with special limited-time pricing at MacSales.com, and will begin shipping in September.

These ones work with apple hardware too. Stick some magnets between the stand and the computer, even you can go really fancy and buy some silver paint to match them. It costs 659$ less and gives you the satisfaction of building something useful.

Is a Mac pro an office chair? Why else would you need these?

It's an innovative Apple designed earthquake detector.
If the Mac rolls off the desk it's either an earthquake or the building is falling over.

Why don't I understand the need for this?

Does the Mac Pro require you to wheel it around your place of business/home so it stays powered up? Kind of like a self winding watch?

Looks like there's at least a bit more to it than just plain old casters.

Gotta admit it's useful when you want to evict a family of dust bunnies living behind it. Apart of that, it's more convenient to show it to the world.

Who's buying this shit? What a joke. It seems everything to do with Apple has added 'idiot' tax.

The greed is unbelievable, as is the bandwagon jumping whenever Apple does something. I guess Belkin made an entire business out of metoo-ing, so guess there is plenty of stupid cash left unexploited in the world.
