My wife has a 2012 MBP. It's been very solid and reliable, but the screen is now starting to show signs of retention and one of the battery cells is dead. Paid quite a lot at the time but in fairness it's delivered reliably for 6 years and still continues to do so. Resale will still be OK, maybe £400-£500. Anyway, started looking at replacing it, and frankly the current prices are a joke. The price has gone up from about £1600 for the 15" base spec to well over £2349. Brexit or not, that's ridiculous pricing. In the same amount of time, the pricing of Surfaces and the like has come down. A top end Matebook X could've been had for £1299 yesterday from Amazon. Back in 2012, the Retina screen was a big differentiator but others now have 3k and 4k screens. There's not a lot to differentiate macbooks from Windows machines anymore, so the prices are totally unjustifiable. Now how do I convince my wife that she can't have a new MacBook...
(skeptical) whatever keeps you happy.
Wow you're right, every time an Apple product pops up there I am! You know, if I can stop just one person throwing away their money on an apple product, just one... it will have all been worth it. ;(
Amazing laptops I’ve got a 2017 pro touchbar and bloomin love it (unicorn)
Wow you really don’t like Apple, every thread and you feel obliged to add a negative comment. You know it is ok to just scroll on by. The Apple v Android fanboy has to be getting old soon.
