Is any other aussie here as annoyed as I am with the price massive price increase of the new macbook line? The low end macbook white, used to cost $1500, now costs $1649, and the aluminium macbooks cost $2099, and $2549. Prices of the two higher priced macbooks the day before the new models were released were: $1799 and $2099 (blackbook). So im quite annoyed that they've increased the price so much, and i don't plan buying another apple laptop anymore, I just can't afford that much, im going to have to go back to windows for my next laptop, which somewhat saddens me, but at least the prices aren't so ridiculous. I understand there needs to be a premium, but this much? I also realise they've upgraded the parts in the new macbooks, but previous times they have done that, the price has remained the same. One more thing, the student discount (for uni and tafe) was always $150 off the price, now it's only $70 off. Why punish us apple?
