Apple today launched its new models of MacBooks Air and Mini macs. We have already commented on their news here on the site, but now it’s time to talk about what we don’t like: machine prices.
First of all, it is worth noting that the MacBook Air also became more expensive in the United States; before, the notebook cost from $ 1,000; now, over there, the game starts at $ 1,200 (according to Apple, because of the addition of the Retina display).
Here in Brazil, of course, the values have also increased:
|13 ″ input||R $ 7,500||R $ 10,400||38.7%|
|13 ″ top-of-the-line||R $ 8,800||R $ 12,000||24.8%|
The Mac mini started at $ 500 in the US and now starts at $ 800.
Here is the price list here in Brazil:
|input||R $ 3,850||R $ 7,000||81.8%|
|top-of-the-line||R $ 5,250||R $ 9,400||79.1%|
Note that, before, there were three models available (one entry, one intermediate and one top-of-the-line); now, Apple offers only two options and the user can customize the machine as he sees fit. Also remembering that, as always, the Mac mini does not come with a keyboard, mouse, trackpad or any other accessory – much less a monitor.
Apple did not move prices on other Macs (MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac and iMac Pro).
