Microsoft's own-brand laptops are the latest tech products to face price rises in the UK.
The firm has added between £150 and £400 to the cost of Surface Books sold via its website.
The company had already increased the cost of its business software and cloud services in the country in recent months.

Buy a cheaper alternative then, simples.
All manufacturers are raising prices. That's the point. Do you get that?

Also Tesco has apparently increased the price of Halloumi :(
GBP to TRY exchange rate shows that the Halloumi price is entirely unrelated to any suggested Brexit induced GBP weakening.
Who cares about Microsoft Surface?
Tescos halloumi is from Cyprus.
People who want to buy a surface will care about the prices. In fact anyone wanting to buy a laptop, phone or tablet will notice price fluctuations,...and by fluctuations I mean increases.
Stop buying stuff and they'll have to decrease prices. Consumer power. It will be short term anyway, Once the storm settles. You're like the grim reaper of Brexit. Get off your high horse and let me buy you that one way ticket ;).

I'd thought you'd have more sympathy for economically disadvantaged individuals who may struggle to find jobs and already struggle with their own self-worth. That these people on fixed incomes may see prices going up isn't great for the mor vulnerable in society.
I do have sympathy for the less advantaged among us. However, my sympathy won't get them that Surface pro.
But you do understand that this is indicative of price increases across the board and in every area of the economy, at a time when wages are stagnant for many workers?
your advice didn't seem to be that sympathetic considering people like that aren't simply relying on state handouts.

Odd, I thought you would agree with my first comment about getting a better job if they want to buy stuff they can't afford. I thought you were an advocate of people having personal targets and bettering themselves.

Just shows you how wrong you can be. You think you know someone...

Demand likely won't be affected because the whole market has increased in price.

As for the ticket, I'd feel better if you spent the money on your kids. But thanks for the offer.

No, after brexit the pound fell sharply against the dollar, this means that in reality Apple should actually be decresing thier prices in the UK and they are just jumping on the bandwagon and "fleecing" the sheep.

Or do you think there's a government conspiracy and apple makes both using a workforce of lizard people?

Quotes from HYS on the BBC link

I noticed the prices didn't go down when things were the other way round

"It indicated the latest move was due to the weakness of the pound against the dollar."
---

Rubbish.

That's an excuse used for justifying profiteering. The UK is going through some political changes and "the market" is using that as an excuse to gouge customers by as much as possible

£1500 for a Windows laptop? Who on earth is buying them?!?
probably the same sort of people that buy Apple products (would be my answer)

Microsoft blames pound for price rise-

"We" blame greed.....

This price rise is fully justified.

Bill Gates is down to his last 73 billion.

Have sympathy people

"Sterling has dropped about 16%...since the Brexit referendum"

Simply not true, one might even call it 'fake news'.

GBP has been in long term decline against the USD since July 2014, and the short term spike that the BBC bases this 16% on before the referendum was based on spiv speculation rather than anything more fundamental.

http://www.xe.com/currencycharts/?from=GBP&to=USD&view=5Y

I think that'll be enough

Tis another negative thread by OP to ridicule democracy but it's only the majority that comprehend the insult and the minority must be right

Prices are constantly rising and it's not all due to Brexit. The markets will of course always react to change.

Your constant whining bringing us the latest doomsayers headline is getting repetitively boring. It's like it turns you on.

Actually I've stated a number of times a concern for those most vulnerable members in society in low skilled labour who will see wages stagnate whilst prices increase. The same goes for those on benefits.

That they are in that situation due to their own issues doesn't change the fact they will struggle.

I would but there's always individuals who can't do that and will end up on the dole because society simply finds no value in them. Understand? It's a balancing act is what I'm saying.

It's a proven fact if HEAWD doesn't like you, no matter what you say he will turn it around on you.
As I said yesterday to him, it's OK to agree with someone.
He's a little puppy though who likes to rule the den lol
Agreeing with some people would be a warning siren that i was wrong.
Because in your own mind you're always right?.

If you can't afford to pay the increased price, get a better job.
Simples.
I'd thought you'd have more sympathy for economically disadvantaged individuals who may struggle to find jobs and already struggle with their own self-worth. That these people on fixed incomes may see prices going up isn't great for the mor vulnerable in society.
I do have sympathy for the less advantaged among us. However, my sympathy won't get them that Surface pro.
But you do understand that this is indicative of price increases across the board and in every area of the economy, at a time when wages are stagnant for many workers?
your advice didn't seem to be that sympathetic considering people like that aren't simply relying on state handouts.
Odd, I thought you would agree with my first comment about getting a better job if they want to buy stuff they can't afford. I thought you were an advocate of people having personal targets and bettering themselves.
Just shows you how wrong you can be. You think you know someone...
Actually I've stated a number of times a concern for those most vulnerable members in society in low skilled labour who will see wages stagnate whilst prices increase. The same goes for those on benefits.
That they are in that situation due to their own issues doesn't change the fact they will struggle.
So you wouldn't encourage them to try to get a better job? Earn more money?
I would
So you do agree with me. Thank you.
I think anyone can improve themselves, no matter the dire situation they find themselves in.

So you do agree with what I said. Kinda makes you wonder why you took issue with my comment in the first place.

It's weird. People moan that I make a lot of posts like this or that others do, yet they can't quite work out that goods across the board are increasing in price.


Haritori, I will make it clear.

You will need to spend more money on essential items and discretionary purchases.

It's unlikely your income will match that increase.

I could keep going but someone might accuse me of patronising you. X)

Yeah I did get it... I was being sarcastic :/

but really come and tell me when bread and milk goes up, because while its luxury items from corporate tax dodging companies really I couldn't care less.

I think the majority of us on here are smart enough to understand which companies are taking advantage of a situation...

Bananas count? They've gone up in price and other goods will likely follow.

Or do you live on a bread and milk based diet? Fruit and vegetables are your friends.
