$6099 before tax and Apple care with the hardware maxed out.

For real though. I have a 2012 MacBook Pro and the only reason I have it in the first place was because my Dad gave it to me. It's not going to last forever...the battery is pretty much gone, 8 GB of RAM is a joke (almost as funny as being soldered to the motherboard so I can't upgrade it), and every "update" to MacOS breaks something new.

I really enjoy the operating system and they are cool computers. But the hardware markup is nuts. I can't justify that right now, or probably ever. Unless a company is buying this for me, this thing isn't in my future anytime soon. Definitely a little jealous of the people who can just throw down for one of these.
