    Sorry Apple, got a surface pro for my wife the other day: so far no regrets.

    Even with a four year warranty on that keyboard as reassurance who really wants to bother with possible downtime or any other unforeseen problem.

    Best to just hold off till Apple gets the keyboard right, which is rather important in a laptop.

    Yep, $3000 for 256gb hard drive and 16gb of ram. But hey, the screen is an inch longer!

    Look at the prices they are charging for current models. It’s not like $3000 is much of a stretch.

    Apple products are mostly for the rich. It is what it is. Price is basically irrelevant at this point.

    My point some people might find value in buying these while they’re discounted. I’m sure the configuration in the article that’s $2500 will be near $4000 with the 16 inch model.

    Junk unreliable keyboard.

    It’s a ripoff at any price.

    Hope you have better luck with yours than we have had with several at our office. After a while, the screen bulged and separated from the machine, rendering them pretty much useless.

    Was looking at this. I really like the 13" form factor, and the i5-8279U chip is unique, as the 2.4Ghz is only available on MacBooks. Every other 8th gen 13" laptop by PC makers top out at 1.8Ghz or 1.9.

    But they make it default with 8GB, and ding you to upgrade to 16GB. And the 16GB upgrade option doesn't reflect this discount.

    This would hit the sweet spot. It's just too expensive to get 16GB of memory, which is what I'd expect from a laptop that will be used heavily.
