Sporting a 27-inch 5K display, up to an 18-Core CPU, and 128GB of RAM, there’s no doubt the iMac Pro is a pretty drool-worthy computer. But strangely, the coolest thing about the iMac Pro wasn’t the system itself – it was the space grey peripherals that came with it.
In fact, Apple’s darker, edgier space grey keyboard, mouse and trackpad, which were previously only available as optional extras when purchased alongside a new iMac Pro, became so highly desired that they were fetching over $2000 (or 10 times the price of the normal versions) when auctioned away on sites such as eBay.
At those prices, it was almost possible to break even on the purchase of a new mid-range iMac Pro, as long as you were willing to sell those space grey peripherals later.
Thankfully, Apple has finally come to its senses and made those space grey accessories available for individual purchase, with only a slight markup for the cool, darker hues. However, if you browse Apple’s online store, you might not find them, so your best best is to click on the following links.

Two of the items cost just $36 more than the traditional silver versions, with the space grey Magic Keyboard and space grey Magic Trackpad 2 each priced at $215. Meanwhile, the space grey Magic Mouse 2 comes in cheaper at just $139, $30 more expensive than its silver counterpart.
So there, for all the people who held off on paying exorbitant prices for dark coloured accessories, your patience has been rewarded. And for anyone who did pay over $1000 for a space grey whatever on eBay, hit me up, because I’d love to know how you feel now.
