    Hmm I think it's perhaps a little steep for the top end models. I just configured one to it's highest spec and it had easily passed 4000. Rather a lot of money, at least for me at the moment. I would like the new one despite my reservations about the ports situation, but I just can't afford that at the moment.

    Maybe I'm price sensitive, but it's just crazy that they have no updated laptop that is under $1k. The MBA has to appeal to a huge number of users if they would only update the thing...I would love a mac, but there's no way I can justify that price.
    I think Apple will always keep one laptop under $1k, but it will never be the newest and greatest. I think we'll start to see the iPhone pricing model applied. As new laptops are introduced, the old versions will be bumped down the price spectrum.

    Far too expensive, but I've been waiting so long!

    I'm holding out hope that by the time I am ready to upgrade the price will drop similar to how it did with the macbook air. Right now, I think the price increases are risky if they want people to invest in the machines, especially because many people realize that it will be difficult at the start with the amount of adapters.

    Premium price for a premium product.

    Premium pricing is normal for Apple products...especially for the MBP's...it is a premium product and from my point of view, the usability seems to last longer than cheaper priced windows products. I am still using my 2010 MBP for work, and though it struggles at times, it is still a work horse...even at almost 7 years old.

    I had expected that the cheapest new macbook 15 inch would be around 2000. The starting price of the macbook 15 inch was this price in 2014 and 2015.
