Apple’s new MacBook Pro with Retina display will cost you at least £1,799, depending on how many extras you fancy.
We decided to add all of the extras Apple offers when you go to buy your MacBook Pro with Retina display, to find out just how much you could spend on your brand new laptop. The result: £7,291.93.
Apple’s 15in 2.6GHz Retina display has a starting price of £2,299. Upgrade the processor to 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i7, and it’ll set you back an extra £240.
If you also want to increase your memory from the default 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM, to a 16GB, your MacBook Pro will total £2,698.99.
You’ll start with 512GB Flash Storage. Upgrade to 768GB, you’ll add £400, taking you over the £3,000 mark.
Your MacBook Pro’s thin profile means there’s no SuperDrive built-in. You can get Apple’s USB SuperDrive for an additional £65.
Some of you may decide you need a 27in Apple Thunderbolt Display to connect to your new MacBook Pro. That’ll be an extra £899 though. Now, we’re totalling more than £4,000.
Add the AppleCare Protection Plan, which covers you for up to three years from your computer’s original purchase date, and you’ll increase your total by £279.00. With One to One on top of that, your total so far will be £4,420.99.
Of course, then there’s the accessories, including cables, adapters, external Thunderbolt storage, and the Time Capsule. Add these, and you can checkout for just under £7,000.
Complimenting your new MacBook with the Apple TV is an extra £99. Not forgetting a printer, which will bring your final total to a hefty £7,291.93. Phew.
