It appears Apple has jacked up prices for its MacBooks overnight by as much as $200. We've done a side-by-side comparison of the pricing to see just how more you're paying for Apple's range of notebooks.
The table below reflects the price change for a range of MacBooks in the most basic configurations available:
|Model||Previous RRP||Current RRP||Price difference|
|13-inch MacBook Pro||$1549||$1559||$10|
|13-inch MacBook Pro (Retina display)||$1799||$1999||$200|
|11-inch MacBook Air||$1249||$1329||$80|
|13-inch MacBook Air||$1399||$$1479||$80|
The iMac range was not included in the comparison since it has just been refreshed and we expect the pricing to be different. Judging by the fact Apple has also recently bumped up prices of apps on its App Store, it would seem the company is responding to the tanking Australian dollar.
We're expecting other technology vendors to follow suit so get ready for even more price hikes on your favourite electronic goods.
