I would like to see a discussion about Apple's pricing policy. I can't talk about costs in America because I don't know, but here in Australia, well let's see.

In 2007 I bought a top of the range 17 inch MacBook Pro, it cost me AU$2900, then I upgraded in late 2013 to a top of the range replacement MBP15 inch, 16 gigs and 1TB it cost AU$3400. Now to get a top of the range replacement with reasonable memory and a 1TB the price is an amazing AU$6199.

Compare this with a 24 inch top of the range iMac I bought for the family in 2008 which cost AU$3100, I have upgraded it with an SSD and memory. If I wanted to replace this today the current 24 inch iMac I would be looking at a price of AU$3199, which in real terms over that time period is actually a reduction in its price. However the MacBook Pro seems to have gathered an extra AU$3000. Why? Where is that $3000 of added value? Or is that just an added Apple tax?

No one mentioned the iMac which is still on M1?
I suspect the iMac will be updated with M3 come this fall. All indications, leaks, rumours and speculation are pointing to this.

Unless it’s deliberately hobbled in some way M3 will be more powerful than M2, but not as powerful as M2 Max, M2 Pro and M2 Ultra. So the Mac Studio and MacBook Pros will remain more powerful than an M3 iMac unless Apple gives the iMac an upgraded M3 or M2 Max option to put that variant on par with Apple’s Pro offerings.
