They've lost the plot with those prices

Even without the Brexit excuse the headline model would be sailing well past the £2000 mark. They've taken the piss...and then taken it some more.

It's the price of a used small car!

I'm afraid I'm out.

Holy gooseberry fool that's one expensive Macbook Pro. :lol:

Thought the EU was meant to have banned proprietary charging cables and we'd be in a glorious USB type C world on all phones. The lightning port on the iPhone with USB type C on the Macbook Pro is a hilarious oversight.

Wow so expensive. Also the 15in looks a bit off with the massive frame/gap around the keyboard.
I'm off to Las Vegas next month but the US prices are before state tax etc I assume so won't work out much cheaper than here right?
My friend works at Apple though and they are allowed discounts for friends but even with just under 20% off its still a lot!!
I'll probably get the 13in touch ID bar one for Christmas.

I still use HDMI and the USB ports on my existing Macbook Pro. I connect a huge amount of stuff for it, and I refuse to buy silly dongles.

The price is simply crazy, for something which I see as a massive step-back from what I already have.

I will not be buying it, and I hope it flops big time.

So it's not just the new MacBooks that are more expensive - Apple has secretly raised the prices on all computer, some by hundreds of Pounds (for the same models which were cheaper 24 hours ago).

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/ ... d-sterling

Pure greed - this is a company which makes billions of dollars profit.

I hope Apple loses a lot of fans over this. I use Mac because it's easy to use, but I'm not one of those devotees who worship the ground this greedy company walks on...

Which is better: an Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 card or Radeon Pro 450/455/460?

Lmao, the lack of tactile escape and function keys is going to completely strawberry float over productivity for professional design/cad/cam software users who use a bazillion shortcuts. Not to mention having to use dongles or hubs for every connected machine/printer. That goes for audio devices too, unless you want to use hardware designed and priced for the same idiots prepared to spend this kind of money on the same thing with a gimmick.

I'll stick with my 2010, and I was thinking of upgrading to an Air at some point and building a hackintosh but decided to invest in machinery that actually does stuff instead.

Are these meant to be the same price/more expensive than a 5K iMac?

Does/did anyone else find that the vibrate on the iPhone 6 is nowhere near strong enough? I never notice it in my pocket. Very annoying, especially as, apart from that, I think it's an amazing phone.

Yeah I have the same problem. Sometimes I'll feel it but most of the time I can't feel it.

Maybe I need to buy tighter jeans.

Rather than buy new clothes, just exercise less and eat more. You will soon have a tighter pair of jeans and be able to feel your phone vibrate more easily. Plus the ladies love a chubby guy with an apple.

Strange question, is there anyway to clear the cache on a IPhone? Got a 16gb se the other day because I couldn't afford the 64gb, is the only option to delete and then reinstall the app?

Seems crazy having to do this as it's so easy on Android
