    I just have to say a great big "thank you" to everyone here in PRSI.

    As it is made out to believe, PRSI is usually the Macrumours version of Jersey Shore, Real Housewives, Jerry Springer, and Nocturn Alley all rolled into one...

    However, the only time when that is mainly reversed is when Apple releases new products, then the threads in the main sections of the forum fall down to below what we here in PRSI can even do, and this place actually becomes a decent hangout for the day.

    So Thanks, PRSI for being the beacon and bastion of non-Apple product sludgery every Apple product announcement day! :D

    What a sad state of affairs when this becomes a refuge from discourse and vitriol. :oops:

    Don't get me started on the new MacBook Pros. Those prices are extortionate. They will cut those prices before Christmas, I guarantee it. I've never been a Dell customer before, but Tim Cook may have just caused me to jump to the PC ship.

    I can't keep up with all the complaints in the mac section today.

    My favorite so far is the poster calling the touch bar, the "Emoji bar".

    15" old starting price, $1,999 / £1,599.
    15" new starting price with half the storage, $2,399 / £2,349.

    13" costs $400 more just for the Touch Bar than previously.

    Yeah! Source, or you're being reported! :p :p

    Seriously:

    13" MBP, no Touch Bar (basically, same bits as an MBA in a small MBP shell, with function keys) $1499.
    13" MBP with Touch Bar, $1799.
    15" MBP with Touch Bar, $2399.

    These are all base prices. Plus they are still offering last year's model, the 12" Macbook, and the last MBA. Pretty much, this is the death knell for the MBA, as it is only the 13" variant, and at $999.

    Due to the complexities of foreign exchange rates (read: Brexit), last year's models that they are selling as the entry models actually got more expensive. They raised the prices on last year's products. :eek:

    Funny joke, Tim. You had your fun. Now you can show us the real prices.

    But they're thinner! (um... there are downsides to that but thankfully most Americans have no clue about technology...)

    "They just work!" (uh... looking at Apple's forum that's not always true...)

    The new bar is so innovative and uses less plastic for the cheap feel keyboard! Should be as much a cost savings as nixing the internal optical drive, right? Oh, wait, the price of the MBP after the drive was removed went down by - oh, that's right, $0.00...

    Costing $400 more is truuuuuuuuuuuuuly worth it! Just like the Emperor's new see-thru mink stole with matching pants and undies!

    A CEO who tells us human rights are good but freely supports countries that would otherwise jail him (or worse) for not being the perfect bastion of heterosexuality. Even in China...

    Double the fun for just $100. I have never heard that term before in my life.

    Maybe not garbage, but all rMBP can be useless since the beginning.
