Expect to pay about $1200.00 and up for a brand new 2018 MacBook Pro (check prices)

Apple computers have never been cheap and the latest MacBook Pro is no exception.

These new MacBook Pro models come in a few configurations, both with a ‘touch bar’ and without and in 2 sizes, 13.3 inches and 15 inches.

The MSRP on the MacBook Pros are as follows:

13 inch MacBook Pro Prices

2.3GHz Processor with 128GB Storage – $1299.00

2.3GHz Processor with 128GB Storage – $1499.00

Touch Bar and Touch ID with 3.1GHz Processor and  256GB Storage – $1799.00

As you can see, the fastest MacBook Pro for 2018 is close to $2000.00. I think that is a lot of money for a computer you cannot upgrade. But for some, it’s chump change and these obviously sell but my days of spending 2 grand on a Mac are over.

15 inch MacBook Pro Prices

2.2GHz Processor with 256GB Storage – $1999.00

Touch Bar and Touch ID with 2.8GHz Processorand 256GB Storage – $2399.00

Touch Bar and Touch ID with 2.9Ghz Processor and 512GB of Storage – $2799.00

All of these MacBook Pro computers are powerful, and ad all the benefits of using a Mac offers, but the big question  for me is are they worth it? As I write this I am using a Lenovo Thinkpad and yet all my  apps are web apps so in my use case, using a Mac would be overkill.

If it were my money and for all that I do I would buy the cheap MacBook Pro without the touch bar and be very happy with  my decision.
