Apple raises UK Mac prices by hundreds of pounds thanks to Brexit
Apple unveiled its new line of MacBooks yesterday, but for customers in the UK the announcement brought some unpleasant surprises: a price bump across the board for Apple products. Not only are the new MacBook Pro laptops hundreds of pounds more expensive than previous generations, but while Apple was updating its store, it also raised the prices on a whole range of other products, including the Mac mini, Mac Pro, and iMac.In the UK, the 13-inch MacBook Pro without a Touch Bar costs £1,449, while the version with the Touch Bar starts at £1,749. The base 15-inch model (with a Touch bar, 256GB of memory, and a 2.6GHz Core i7 processor) costs £2,349. By comparison, the previous version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro used to start at £999, while the 15-inch model cost from £1,599. Apple is still selling this older 13-inch MacBook Pro (i.e. the one that wasn't unveiled on stage yesterday and that doesn't have the latest innards), but that's got its own price increase — to £1,249.
