Wow $2500 for the baseline model 2012 15 inch Macbook pro? Ouch. What are your thoughts on this?
hahahha what a Dumb ass I am. Thanks for clearing that up.
That's in $AU. Probably closer to $2000 in US pricing. I think Apple would probably try to aim for $1999.
It's $1799, not $2500.
Also, the Australian pricing includes GST/Sales Tax of 10%.
That's the 2011 model, not the 2012. The leaked $2499AUD price for the new base model suggests a price closer to or slightly above $2000.
Currently the model that sells for $2199 on the US store sells for $2499 on the Australian store, so if they keep cross-country pricing the same then the new base model will be $2199.
ThisIsMe is referring to this list
As several people have pointed out to me in the MacRumor's Article thread on this story, Australian prices are much higher than US prices and apparently the listed prices in the inventory image already includes 10% tax
Thanks! I hadn't seen that. AU$2499 = $2464 USD
Exchange rate as of 6/6/2012:
$1 AU = 0.98 US.
so not so much of a difference
US gets cheapest pricing by far. Anything over $1999 would be a no go here in my opinion. $1799 like usual or $1999 max as a baseline.
Except that Apple doesn't price by straight currency conversion.
Currently the 2.4Ghz 15" MBP sells for $2199 in the US and $2499 in Australia.
So it looks like the new base model Macbook Pro will sell for the same as the current 2.4Ghz model at around $2199.
Time to order a 17" late 2011 if these prices are true............
I doubt they will bump the price same way I doubt MacBooks will get SSD storage as a standards this year. It just won't happen.
It's the 10% goods and services tax that's already included that tis throwing everyone off. I'm just glad me and the mrs should be able to stretch educational discounts for a while.
GST+ the fact that you guys always get ripped off when it comes to electronics. Many things just do cost more there as their pricing became that way in an era of a weaker Australian dollar.
