It shows how astronomically priced Apple gear is now that even with decent discounts, the prices are still way above what I'd consider. Especially with practically portless, dodgy keyboarded, gimmicky gimped MacBooks that aren't fit for purpose, not for my needs.

I just so wish I'd bought a higher spec MBPr in 2013, had I known that that was going to be the last proper computer they'd make for over half a decade. It's both laughable and frustrating.

I am with you, but I can count my lucky stars.

I bought from B&H for my lovely wife a mid-2014 MBPr (2.8GHz, 16, 512) for $700 off during Black Friday 2015.

And, it is one of the last Mohicans.

Not only because it preserves the classic ports, and nVIDIA dGPU, but because with Transcend JetDrive 855 one has the ability to upgrade to a 1TB SSD, PCIe Gen3 x4. (Transcend JetDrive simply rocks!)

This stops cold, from 2016 on, with all Apple platforms built with uber-expensive, soldered flash.

It's even worse here in Germany. Just as an example, the higher specced 15" Macbook Pro is 2800 USD in the US. In Germany, it's 3300 EUR, which is about 3800 USD, so a thousand bucks more. I mean, I get that there's a difference in how tax rates are indicated in those prices, but this is definitely way beyond just that. The prices are just a joke at this point and I don't see how anybody sane would ever buy anything from Apple here in Germany. It's not like Germany is some desolate third world country which involves a lot of risk for Apple doing business. I really don't get how and why the prices exploded so much.
Because Tim Cook needs to make record profits every quarter for the shareholders (and himself) or the board will replace him: the long-term future of Apple be damned! The only thing that matters any more is this and possibly next quarter, and that's it.
