At least they are updating chips in-cycle for new buyers.

I imagine people who bought in July are not pleased....

That is messed up for anyone that recently got the top of the line $7,000 Macbook Pro back in August. I am sure they would have wanted this option included.
Why should it be?

You payed and bought for the product at that time for the current price at that time. It is with everything like that. At one point you decide to buy or to wait. If you have to wait until the next revision or model you never have to buy anything :)

I also don’t understand why some Apple consumers say a 2600 dollar product is deprecated or obsolete when the next one comes out with only a few minor changes. It is not like the iPhoneX is total crap and stops working now the the XS is out...

Interesting how Apple is charging for any technical improvement. Remember the days when computers got faster at the same price point?
