The prices of the MacBooks have been increasing with each iteration and I’m wondering whether I’m being irrational for thinking that they’ve reached a point where they’re just too expensive.
The baseline 15″ MacBook Pro costs $3,199 CDN and that’s with a measly 256GB SSD in a “Pro” computer. The 1TB model (the baseline for an actual “Pro” computer) moves the price up to a whopping $3,919. I would love to own one of the new MacBooks but I feel like Apple has really outpriced me and I’m really wondering whether a MacBook is worth the money.
I love the build quality, touchpad and Unix OS. Despite my preference for MacBooks, it just feels like the MacBook prices are getting ridiculous.
I’m thinking of getting a high performance Windows laptop for game development and programming then installing Linux to it.
