Not long ago a 15 inch MBP started at $2,000. Hardly cheap but almost justifiable. Now they start $2,400. Oh, but you get all this awesome stuff for your money: a 6 core processor! A 4 GB graphics card! But what if I want to just use it to write, watch videos, listen to music, and surf the Internet? "Well........have we got the product for you! A cheaper Macbook Air! Lightness strikes again!" But what if I have bad eyesight and don't want a smaller screen? What if I really want the 15 inch screen without all the power user stuff? Ummmm........................... It's as if Apple has forgotten that some might just want a bigger screen and they're not all graphic designers. I'm going to be in the market for a new laptop soon but I'm leaning heavily towards a 4K Windows laptop instead. Will save me a lot of $ and do everything I need. And I'll probably get a better a keyboard, a touchscreen, a higher pixel density screen, even a 17 inch 4K screen............all for less money. But I'd probably stick with Apple if they hadn't forgotten my segment of the market entirely.
