He virtual reality market It has yet to take hold, even though the potential and future it demonstrates is colossal. We have PS VR2 in the console sector, Meta Quest 3 as Meta’s next bet and Apple Vision Pro revolutionizing the industry. A company as powerful as Apple has wanted to jump into the pool with a scary device.
It does so both in technological possibilities and in its bulky price. It is necessary to disburse the enormous figure of 3,499 dollars to get our unit, which makes the product a luxury within the reach of very few. However, the PC community has not been slow to make a comparison.
The user pedro19 has posted on Reddit everything what you could buy with the same value to build a PC Gaming. He has been concerned that we even have a VR device and the truth is that the calculations are possible, as we can verify.
To make the calculations, it is necessary to take the prices of the United States on Amazon as a reference and the accounts are more than clear, even taking into account McDonald’s nuggets.
Adding up all the prices, this gives us $3,257.09 of total spending. Some components are not exactly the same as those in the image, but their function is similar and it shows that we are in a similar price range. However, what we could not fulfill would be the request for 1,000 nuggets, although it is possible to take many home.
Specifically, we could buy 602 McDonald’s nuggets with the remaining $241.91 to reach the $3,499 needed to get the Apple Vision Pro. Taking the same components in Spain as a reference, spending would skyrocket to approximately 3,719.68 euros. .
Of course, the best possible decision is to invest money for a monitor to play with, since it is the only thing missing from the equation. With this PC you can easily enjoy 4K resolution and 144FPS of most titles in addition to accompanying the game sessions with the virtual reality of Meta.
