Discussion in 'MacBook' started by CRoebuck, Oct 27, 2016.
You got to be kidding me. M7 now £1700 in UK ????
Yes. I've been wanting a Mac for a while to go with my phone and tablet but these increases are mad. No way.
My missus offered to buy me a MacBook last month. Now the same model is £200 more.
I used to say that I'd hate myself if I paid so much for an iPhone. I eventually bought one outright for £719 plus insurance. I'd hate myself even more if I bought a Mac at these prices.
All the prices are up: The iMac I bought for £1,849 in august is now £2,249
Mostly down to the pathetic value of the GBP, I'm afraid
At this point I would definitely go for a refurb. Absolutely crazy prices.
Just the price of Brexit chaps. I noticed they increased the prices of the refurbished models too, which is especially insulting.
Apple are "correcting" against the weak £, and that good old 20% VAT
better a prince increase than a king increase...
am i right, the cheapest macbook is the £949 air?
But, if you compare with the crazy pricing of the new Macbook Pro, the 12-inch almost seems like a bargain now
Joking aside, I think Apple has stepped over all limits now.
The Pound has fallen in value by 25% vs. the Dollar over the last year. A price increase should be expected!
That DAMN BREXIT!!!!!!!!! I'm sure that this is just the start BUT I can't believe the price of MacBooks now. £1250 for the M3!!!!!!!!!! £1450 for the M5 almost 20% increase!
So i guess i have two options, get a better job or buy a cheaper laptop.
Guess i have to get a better job huh?
Apple still charges first-class tickets for Mac users but still treats Mac users as second-class citizens.
I kind of feel let down by Apple being so greedy in a way as they know that the only people who will suffer are its loyal customers. That's not a good way to treat anyone. A 20% price increase is pretty nasty. The M5 MacBook is not worth £1550. I felt that it was ok for £1150 at the most. Gutted as I was planning on one but no way, only a mug would hand over £300 extra for nothing extra in return. Maybe the UK govt should cut VAT for the time being

Just wait otherwise you are handing money away for no reason. A £300 M5 increase in pure madness. Thats the same as burning £300. I feel as though Apple are a bit dirty on this one.

meanwhile, back in the real world...
macs have always been expensive. and all the whining about the new ones won't bring the prices down. if you don't want to spend the money, go for the entry-level 13". if you want the touchpad... you'll have to pay for it. this is just the way it is. apple has made some great strides (size, power, features) with the new macbook pros. if you don't agree, don't buy one.
Just because it's expensive, doesn't mean it has cart blanche to be extra expensive "for the lulz".
Even if you agree, but therefor can't afford it, you still won't buy one..
CDN $ has dropped .5 cents to USD $ since Apple last did this, and they've increased the Macbook spec I was eyeing by $300 after the keynote (roughly a 15% price increase.) That does not jive with a .5 cent currency change, no matter which way you try to swing it.
Apple PR would call this a "price correction" or "price adjustment".
Thank the British voters. You're just getting to pay your Brexit tax. You can always trust politicians to tell you the complete truth/story.
I always regret not having actual screenshots of the products on their site prior to an event. I keep forgetting.
I always end up wishing I could compare dutch store prices. I have a few, but they are from specific configs that I am after.
What? Here in Canada, we don't pay a Brexit tax.
Wait a minute ... is THAT why the price of gasoline here just went up by .2 cents/litre?!
Brexit! Why, Brexit, why?!
Argos on ebay have the 2016 1.2GHz model for £1049 still, all colours bar silver it looks.
It's times like these that I'm glad I bought the MacBook when it got a spec bump after wwdc. Literally saved £200 by being an early adopter.
Win for me. Not so much for everyone else who didn't buy one before brexit happened.
Maybe you should check what your government has been doing instead of turning a blind eye and mad about your Apple product prices.
I would just wait until next year when the prices will drop. Those that have to have now....foot the bill for R&D. Next year, Apple won't have much new so they will make a big deal over lower prices.
The only deal, in my option, from Apple is the iMac. Bang for buck its their value play.
Yes, they did it so that only princes can buy them now. Thank the Lord you guys are still a monarchy.
Apple products are not worth their prices. Fight with yr money and refuse to buy Apple products. Use your old devices longer, or buy used devices so the money doesn't go to Apple. That's what I do.
