    i was going to buy a refurb MacBook 12" last week for £880 but thought it was wise to hang of for the event this evening, but man what a mistake, the refurbished ones are now £1059 and new ones have increased big time as well. Now I know the pound is weak post Brexit blah blah but jees they are squeezing it a bit.

    Still a good deal imho going for the refurnished.
    The MacBook 12" and iPad Pro range looks a lot more appealing than the MacBook Pro range as of right now.

    Yep. Basically all Apple products have seen increases between 15% and 20% in the UK in the last couple of months. Even worse in the case of some accessories. The Apple Pencil went up by 25% back in September.

    Not knocking the deal, rather my stupid view of a price drop not an increase after today

    I think that the price changes on the iPhones should have been a clue. I wouldn't have expected such a big increase though.

    While the spec change was highly unlikely for the 12" macbook I've waited till today to make my mind about my next purchase.
    Terrible idea.
    The new prices are just insane!

    Yes, I would have expected an increase but it's more than I thought However good old John Lewis still have MacBooks at the older price
