How Much It Will Cost to Go Full Apple
Everyone (or everyone I know) knows Apple. It’s the company that produces beautiful products that we love to hate mostly because they’re expensive. But, let’s say we have the budget and we decide to go full Apple for all our tech needs, how much will it cost? Let’s find out.
Author’s note: The Apple products mentioned below are those with official PH pricing at the time of writing.
Let’s start with the desktop. The iMac is a good place to start as it has everything in the package, including the iMac itself with a built-in display, keyboard, and mouse.
Base: Php56,990 (21.5-inch Full HD)
High-end: Php118,990 (27-inch Retina 5K)
For the laptop, we have the new MacBook Pro. Its most notable feature is the Touch Bar — a Multi-Touch–enabled strip of glass built into the keyboard.
Base: Php83,990 (13-inch)
