News Apple Refreshes MacBook Air, Pro for Back to School, Kills 12-inch MacBook

Gotta love Apple's CPU price game on the Macbook Pro lines. I doubt there's more than a $40 difference in CPU's between the $1,299 and $1,799 models. I guess the other $460 is for double the SSD space and two thunderbolt ports.

Agreed and I remember back in the early 2010's when DDR3 RAM was dirt cheap. Apple was charging $200 - $300 for 16GB RAM upgrades when an 8GB stick was about $28 and 16GB was $55.

That's when I built the desktop I still use. 16GB was far more than I needed but it was so cheap. I didn't realize how good a deal I was getting until prices skyrocketed. Nor did I ever think a system would last so long. All these years later and it is still very fast (as good as a Coffee Lake i3). It'll probably still be chugging along fine for another five years.
