The new single-enclosure aluminum MacBooks are currently available at Al-Ghanim Electronics, tagged with a mind-boggling price of a little over KD 700. Cash discount included. While the most expensive configuration is listed around KD 432 on Apple’s website, a salesperson reasons, “it’s because they have the new nVidia chipsets and DVD writers”.
Oh please. For that amount, I had purchased (and shipped) the high-end 15″ Macbook Pro last year. When will this consumer exploitation stop?
Note: The Macbook on display did not even have an arabic keyboard!
Update: Nabbed a picture. (KD 936.250 it says)
