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.
