Apple fans delighted a new range of Mac laptops costs less here than in America

If you use Apple computers you are an “Apple fan”, says the Daily Mail . You’re also a mug because the Apple stuff you buy in the UK is pricier than the same stuff you can buy in the US, the paper notes.

The Mail thunders: “That’s not how you convert from dollars to pounds, Apple! British fans outraged as new range of Mac laptops costs far more here than in America.”

Fans, of course, never mind paying a surcharge to support their touring idols. But Alexander Robertson has a spotted the outrage and is keen to report on it.

Apple fans in the UK are once again being hit in the pocket after the tech giant announced prices for its new laptop. The company’s latest range of notebooks were announced on Thursday, with the cheapest option coming in at £1,449 in Britain and $1,499 in the US.

That’s the kind of exchange rate only Brexit and the bureau de change on Times Square can recreate.

The pricing means customers in the UK will pay £218 more than their American counterparts after converting the two currencies.
