Just a fun post to gauge people's opinions on how much it now costs for a 15" laptop from Apple. Just watched the event and still speechless after seeing the prices to be honest. Can't see a lot of these being sold...
Brexit has played a role in the enormous UK price hike but is only partially responsible as prices have risen world wide.
"The 13in MacBook Air, now the cheapest laptop in Apple’s range, starts at £949. A day earlier, it started at £849, the 12in MacBook, Apple’s smallest computer, starts at £1,249 for the very same model which sold for £1,049 24 hours ago. And the 13in and 15in MacBook Pros with Retina displays – the older model of MacBook Pro – are still on sale, starting at £1,249 and £1,899 respectively. On Thursday, those computers cost £999 and £1,599. The cheapest iMac is now £1,049 up from £899, while the Mac Pro – a computer that hasn’t been updated for more than 1,000 days – has seen its base price increase by £500, from £2,499 to £2,999."https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2016/oct/28/brexit-apple-mac-customers-prices-rise-us-dollar-pound-sterling
I love a MacBook as much as the next guy. The big trackpad, high build quality and MacOS are great but the huge price hike across the board for the hardware included is more than just a premium at this point and is hugely unjustified.
