Dear Apple, PLEASE release an entry-level laptop!
Look Apple, I support you almost always, but you need to release one (just ONE) budget. Not even a budget laptop, just $1199 for the cheapest laptop currently sold (not including the old MacBook Air because it’s getting reasonably old, and even then is STILL $1000)! Just sell one basic entry level laptop for around $750ish. Just dial it down a notch on certain specs, ok?
PS – The argument that they’re software is free is somewhat weird because other brand laptops can pull it off just fine? Am I missing something there? If you’re that worried about it, remove a couple applications or some utilities.
