We don't usually write gaming and Apple in the same sentence but a new rumor is going around that the Cupertino-based firm is planning to address the eSports market. Patently Apple picked up word that Apple is working on an eSports-centric gaming Mac that will cost up to $5,000.

Curiously, the project doesn't seem to be a traditional gaming PC. Instead, it's claimed that Apple is either working on a large-screen All-in-One device or a large-screen gaming laptop;
Today, out of the blue, a new rumor from Taiwan claims that Apple is planning to launch an e-sports-centric PC next year with a unit price of up to $ 5,000 (about NT $ 152,100), which will be the first time that Apple has entered the e-sports PC field.

It is both a new product and a high unit price. The industry expects that the gross profit margin of Apple's supply chain manufacturers will be positive. (The global e-sports market is expected to leap by $ 1 billion )
An announcement is expected at Apple's Global Developer Conference (WWDC) next June. Overall, we're not quite sure if an Apple-based gaming product could be successful as pretty much all PC video games require Windows, and it's hard to imagine Apple selling a Windows-based gaming PC.
