Last time I showed you the simplification of MaBook Air pricing. From an elaborate and complex model it was flatten to a simpler model that reduces cognitive cost to customer.
See “Before flattening” pricing
See “After Flattening” pricing
That time I predicted a similar price simplification for MacBook Pro. Take a look at the “Before” pricing for MacBook Pro
Too many options, the non-retina version was still alive with HDD drives. Add to this 13″ models. So my prediction then was a simpler pricing model (below)
That is I predicted the end-of-life of non-retina and spinning hard drives. The reality is not that far off. The non-retina HDD is no more an option for 15″ but lives on for some strange reason for 13″. The prices have gone down by $200 and there is a 128GB model for 13″. Not as flat as I thought it would be but getting there.
What do you think?
