It's unfortunate to watch the world's largest company continuously move product lines over to a nickel-and-diming model that not only encourages up-charges, but necessitates them for an optimal experience. The most prominent product where this is apparent is the iPhone 6s: 16GB was fine when they originally made it the base model and for a few years after, but nowadays 16GB is unusable for all but users who solely use the stock apps so the jump to 64GB is necessary to not have to constantly deal with "storage full" notifications. Then, rather than boiling down to size preference for no reason other than to up-charge customers the Plus model solely contains optical image stabilization. So we're at at least $849 for the optimal iPhone experience. The new iMac continues this trend with a bottlenecking 5400rpm HDD in its base model that ruins the entire experience. Apple doesn't even offer a 21.5" model with a Fusion Drive or SSD in its retail stores! Likely in an attempt to upsell to the 27" model, which is quickly becoming overkill for most consumers. Frankly I'm satisfied with the Retina MacBook Pro offerings, which includes all or more than the average consumer needs in its base 15" model. Yet I'm worried this will change and Apple will continue the trend of bottlenecking products to get consumers to upgrade. Some may say this trend isn't new, but all base models thus far have been perfectly usable and not bottlenecked in a blatantly-purposeful way.
