The new ASi Mac laptops coming in maybe late November/December will cost as much or more than the last Intel based ones did. I don't see any dramatic lowering of prices other than on the most entry level MBA or new Macbook. I think they'll show the new ones but not reveal the prices yet. Remember that many people are currently holding off on buying a MacBook (Pro) so Apple is losing sales until those hit the market. They don't worry about losing sales of the older Intel MBPs as those will all sell eventually. They will definitely show new ones for the largest buying season of the year, Black Friday through Christmas.They will have to price new Macs very carefully as the current stock will not sell.
And there will be only a limited number of new Intel MBPs left for sale once they cut production. They'll sell just fine. I think we'll see them roll out a new $799 MacBook with Apple Silicon as they save a lot of money by making their own SoCs so they'll still be making good margins on the lower end. It will be a sort of new version of the $499 Intel Mac minis that they used to have to attract Windows switchers back in the day. The latter 2000s and early 2010s.Old Intel MBPs will sell to those who need Bootcamp, remember. That's usually corporate.
It's only available in big cities right now. No luck for those out in the boondocks.5G might be fast but
