Would you pay $2400 for a MacBook Pro?

It's been years since Apple has released a new version of its prized MacBook Pro. Finally, in November 2019, the highly-anticipated laptop was announced: a 16-inch MacBook complete with a "magic keyboard," improved speakers and more. Although customers are excited for a new Pro option, the laptop starts at $2,399, a hefty price tag for most. Is the new MacBook Pro worth the money?

Apple is bringing a new MacBook Pro into the fold. Per the Apple Newsroom, the laptop holds a lot of promise: 

“With its brilliant 16-inch Retina display, 8-core processors, next-gen pro graphics, even better thermal design, new Magic Keyboard, six-speaker sound system, 100Wh battery, up to 8TB of storage and 64GB of fast memory, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is the world’s best pro notebook.”

Some fans are excited for a new piece of hardware, while others are rejoicing simply for the new keyboard. No matter what you are excited for, this laptop seems to have something for everyone.

But for some, a starting price of $2,399 is simply unreasonable for a laptop. The 16-inch MacBook's counterpart, the 13-inch, starts at $1,299, over $1,000 less than the new release. Plus, as soon as you start adding things like the the 9th-generation core processor,  64 GB of RAM (rather than the starting 16 GB), extra storage space and more, the laptop can rise to more than $6,000. 

In this light, some feel the promise for the new MacBook Pro falls short. Few people can afford to front this kind of money for their computer, no matter how good the keyboard may be.
