    Hi, I'm just wondering why people are calling the MBP "low end"? it costs €1149? Is this just anger at the lack of dedicated GPU?

    I hope I'm making the right choice in mac! :/

    Cause there are always at least a low-end and a high-end macbook pro for the same size. Worse specs of those would be referred to low-end

    im assuming you mean the base model macbook pro 13" which compared to the maxed out 15"/17" it is low end in comparison but not a low end computer.

    Low end in respect to the higher end more expensive 13" model.

    Low-end as in the cheapest model of all MBPs.

    If you look at the specs you are looking a low end laptop at a very high price.

    agreed, they are a high-priced, low-end laptop all around. but that still doesn't stop me, or others from buying, because in the end, the quality of product is very high (imo), and the experience of the OS is better than others (again imo)
