I originally gasped when I saw the prices, but I'm looking at the surface book with performance base prices right now and the new MBP actually looks cheaper. The new Surface Book with Performance Base, 256 GB SSD, 8GB ram, i7 is $2399. A similarly spec'd MBP is $2099. Are Apple's prices really that out of whack or am I just missing something? (I haven't looked at similar Dell and Lenovo yet).
