If there’s one thing that’s common in all Apple products, it’s that ‘affordable’ is a word that can almost never be associated with them. Whether it’s smartphones, tablets, or anything else, Apple’s products always come with a premium price tag. That’s true for the Cupertino-based technology major’s PC line-up as well, which is significantly pricier than the competition. Now, the company has hiked the prices of its entire MacBook and iMac range in the country.

The 12-inch MacBook now goes up to Rs 149,900 based on configuration, after a price increase of up to Rs 21,200. Even the previous-generation MacBook Air (128GB) has gotten a price hike of Rs 7,700, and now costs Rs 84,900.

Coming to MacBook Pros, the 13-inch version will cost you up to Rs 18,800 more, with maximum price going up to Rs 139,900. If you want the 13-inch model with Touch Bar, prepare to shell out up to Rs 24,000 extra, as it starts at Rs 169,900, and goes up to Rs 189,900. The 15-inch MacBook Pros (with Touch Bar) have received a price hike of up to Rs 33,000, and now start at Rs 224,000.

Moving to desktops, the 21.5-inch iMac will cost you anywhere between Rs 99,900 to Rs 139,900, depending on whether you want the standard display or 4K panel. The 27-inch iMac, which has a 5K Retina display, now starts at Rs 169,900 and goes up to a staggering Rs 464,900, with the top-end configuration dearer by Rs 49,900.

Lastly, the revised prices of Mac Pro start at Rs 279,900, with Apple asking an astounding Rs 61,800 extra for the top-of-the-line version, which now costs Rs 379,900.

Bear in mind that these are all existing products, not the recently-launched refreshed MacBook Air and Mac mini, which will start at Rs 114,900 and Rs 75,900 respectively, when they become available starting November 7.
