That should have been the price from the start.

But we all know Apple would rather rip you off to get to a trillion dollar valuation than price their products respectably.

Stupid stinky CAD. That's 1070CAD, 15% tax, so 1230.50 in total. Still feels like way too much to me for Core M and one USB C port.

My fiancée got this rev when they were released and still loves it. Extremely light weight and portable (fits into a handbag). Can run Photoshop and Illustrator just fine... not limited to iOS. She has an iMac for more intensive projects. This is a great price!
