In Canada, the Macbook Pro has slowly crept up in price due to the exchange rate. It hit $1550 for an entry-level Macbook Pro last year. I knew I could hold off, since I didn't need anything yet. I am terribly surprised that a year later, the 2015 Macbook Pro still sells for $1550, with no price drop. That is a cocky move by Apple to begin with. It should have dropped to somewhere in the range of $1350-$1450. But, I think the worst thing is the new pricing model. $1900 for a feature-stripped, entry-level 2016 Macbook Pro? With only 2 ports TOTAL!? What were they thinking. The whole POINT of a Macbook Pro is that it is a desktop alternative. Two. Ports. What??????????? I can live with the Apple logo not lighting up, but two ports, and they require adapters to even use USB devices? If I were already spending $1900, I would be quite sour to know that the next step up ($400 more), has all the missing features... touch bar, 4 ports. If the base model had a touch bar and 4 ports, and the next step up was say $300 more, then the price difference would make sense... better CPU/GPU, more cost. And 8GB of RAM? Again, if the base model had 4 ports, and a touch bar, then 8GB of RAM might make sense... they did throw a 256GB hard drive on there, so 8GB of RAM could be that little unnecessary but annoying upgrade. The $1900 (Canadian) Macbook Pro is a crippled device at an inflated price. The $2300 Macbook Pro is a full-featured device, with flawed ports, and a ridiculously inflated price. Hopefully the Macbook Air doesn't go up in price, and I hope it gets a retina display. I'd go with that instead.
