The New Macbook Pros are gorgeous, overpriced, and functionally limited machines that Apple should be ashamed of.

Not bad. That makes it only about $500 overpriced compared to the previous generation's value.

It took courage to do this... btw this confirms that the margins on these are huge and demand is low imho

As a 15 year-strong Apple customer, neither the iPhone 7 (with its lack of jack support and not much to offer over the 6S) or the pro laptop range (with zero upgradeability and a plethora adapters that would be required) are an option for me.

I fear it'll be a long time 'till I next splash out on new Apple hardware. However, my Mid-2010 MBP with upgraded memory and SSD is still flying, albeit Sierra being the last officially supported OS. I'd kill for the retina screen though, so I'll probably end up going for an older model which can be upgraded and already has all the ports I require.

It won't be long before Apple start to offer external keyboards with the touch-bar support. I may be in the minority here, but I do actually believe this is more than just a gimmick. From what I've seen, it's been extremely well implemented. I wouldn't be surprised in future MBP's ship with touchpads that operate in a similar way. Perhaps I'll hold out for these. I've no interest in a touch-screen laptop!

Sad times.

"Ships in 21 - 27 business days"
"Delivers in 24 - 32 business days"

So Basically I have to wait almost 2.5 - 3 months to get ? No thank you


These are likely concurrent estimates. It's not going to take another 24 to 32 business days to deliver after it ships.

Now consider making this permanent pricing. Its still a massive ripoff, but its a step in the right direction.

Also if people are going to be getting these as gifts (because apparently people buy 3000$ computers as gifts) should include a dongle bundle with it. (say, a USB C to USB A hub, and an HDMI adapter) That way people can actually use their laptop as something other than a web browsing device.

In the UK John Lewis are doing £100 off.

You need to order online, and select in store pick up.

They are doing it to price-match a competitor's promotion.

When you search on their site, you need to specify 'Macbook Pro Touch' to get the new models to show up, otherwise only the old ones appear.

Good info, thanks. MacRumours need to start thinking a little more Globally!

Out of curiosity, are there others out there who think the new MBP is not a money grab?
Seems like Apple has transitioned to a "profit at all cost" company from the awesome "innovate and the money will come" company it used to be. I like the touch bar and USB C ports, but the price is ridiculous.
