$500 off isn’t enough to offset the time, money and frustration you will spend fixing the trash keyboard

You can put macOS on laptops that run Windows BTW. Also you can triple boot Linux, Windows, and macOS on some of not all laptops. No point in overpriced/under speced MacBook if you did quick google searches(I personally now people who sold their MacBook to buy a better speced laptop and install macOS on it). LinusTechTips literally made a tutorial on how to run macOS on ANY PC which also applies to Windows laptops. Imagine having better specs with macOS, So your point will be invalid as you can run macOS on Windows laptops. If it was still $2000 msrp you could get a Razer Blade with an 9th gen i7, RTX 2060, 512gb ssd, 16GB RAM, and a 144hz panel with macOS which is a no brainer!

I’m quite aware of the hackintosh community. I deliberately didn’t include the case where people are willing to steal the OS; of course that makes the system build cheaper.

It’ll be even less expensive if you steal the hardware as well, so maybe you can have a completely free system. Of course, it could be more difficult not to get caught if you try that, but everyone makes their own choices in life...

I just switched from using a Mac for the past 4 years to Windows 10 on a PC. Apple's quality control and the price they're demanding for their products were enough of a one-two punch to turn me away. Next year, I turn in my iPhone XS for something else if this trend continues. By the way, most people can get by with a $300 Chromebook and be perfectly happy.

well put; the slam poetry, but i put up with the MBP zombie keyboard for a year:
-apple initially wanted to repair it for $700+
-the only reason apple did any warranty work is because of legal action / class action
-apple fans no longer bring their MB's to work because peeps make fun of them
...

high priced product and not even mediocre performance
sorry

Apple and its retailers are doing interesting experiments with pricing. It looks as if they're trying to gauge the elasticity of the various product lines. That's good, because it might signal a permanent drop in prices down the road.

For the first year. Then the repair is quite expensive.

yeah, sheesh. Talk about short-sighted. I've had my laptop since 2013 and I'd hate to have to keep bringing it back for keyboard repairs. Been out of warranty a LONG time.
