Yes you are right. SG$800 more for a newer, faster processor, 2x faster RAM, double the storage and 2 additional TB3 ports. I think it’s worth it.

It is cheaper than before with upgraded spec.

Base model with two ports all get cheaper. Same price you can double storage than before.

4 ports model you get double storage and double ram than befor.

yup! the estimates were correct. the $2699 model comes with 512gb ssd and 16gb ram. before this price only got you 256gb ssd and 8gb ram. Great savings across the board. Plus you get new processors and a decent keyboard.

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.

It's cheaper now cos Apple is preparing for new design with Mini LED later this year.

14" and 16" and and 12" with ARM chip next year.

Likely to have a new redesign and with ARM chip.

Initially my MacBook Pro 2017 is facing some issues with ghosting problem on the display.

Surprisingly, now it is solved by itself.

I sent in to Apple authorised dealer to diagnose but they said no issue can be found. However, if I were to replace the display, it costed $1k++ with display replacement fee and diagnosis fee.

Lucky I did not opt for it.
