Nice to see that the price is cheaper (comparatively) since it's the 5th year of roughly the same redesign. But no 14 inch display

its cheaper because apple has finally decided to double the storage and ram. thats it. you are paying $600 less than before. it was quite ridiculous that some 4tb port models in 2016- 2018 started at 128gb and costs $300 to upgrade to 256 and another 300 for 512. Ram is also $300 more for 8 - 16gb upgrade. If you checked the 2019 13 inch macbook pros. it costs 3.2k to get 512gb ssd and 16gb ram. now the same variant is 2699 sgd.

Yes MacBook Pro are getting cheaper. This is similar to 2015 MacBook Pro which it is the lowest price point to get a MacBook Pro that time. After 2016 redesign, price increases again. now in the 4th year of the redesign, price becomes another new Low.

I spent $2780 for my MBP 2017 also with 512gb storage and 16GB. 4 ports Touch Bar version.

Now only cost $2549.
That’s because of the new touch bar feature. When I got my mid 2015 MBP, was the flagship model at only $3.3k+ (2.5GHz, 16GB RAM, 512GB). What I really miss about the models from 2016 onwards is the illuminated Apple logo.

I’m still using it now, still going strong.

Yes it is the touchbar that makes the price up.

Personally I prefer the scissor keyboard on my MBP 2017.

MBP is known to be lasting seriously. One can easily use it for close to 10 years even.

My 2015 one is also scissors type. This is my second MBP as my first was the 2010 one in which shortly after the 5-year mark, GPU failed causing the MBP to auto shutdown and reboot everytime the graphic card switches. I’ve a colleague still using his old MBA which is nearly 10 years old, probably the first model

I might continue to use my current one until it also gives up, but also might be needing a batt change first as capacity is down to around 84%.

Will see next year’s MBP models as rumoured to be ARM-based.

10th gen pricing damn not worth it. Refurb mbp16 base model is slightly under $3k, compared to mbp13 10th gen 2.7k. Though now it is out of stock

Wow. Think I might get this after a year of using Windows with Lenovo mainly for gaming. My DBS corporate promo is about 20-30 dollars cheaper than the education promo Lol.

I think the price is really not bad for the specs. I'm still digging the date design.
