I just saw some of my old receipts for the two MacBook Pros I bought over the past 11 years and compared them with the current price. I was shocked to see that over the course of 5 years, the price of the top end MBP nearly doubled, from £1869 to £3374. Granted, I had a student discount, but that was only 15%. The price of the 2008 MBP was much closer to the 2013 MBP, despite it having double the screen resolution and SSD storage. The current design is almost twice as expensive than the previous one, yet it doesn't even offer anything as revolutionary as the retina display did. It's a bit thinner, has no function keys, and has a defective keyboard, that's about all the new features you get. It just hits you harder when you see actual proof of this, and not just a vague memory.
