On Thursday, Apple raised prices by as much as £500 on its products sold in the U.K.—thus making it cheaper to buy a round-trip ticket to the U.S. or Canada to buy your latest device and fly back to London, reports the Financial Times. For example, a MacBook Pro just jumped in price from £2,499 to £2,999, but starts in the U.S. at $2,999 and in Canada at C$3,499, about £530 and £800 less, respectively, than the price in pounds sterling.
Right now, Air India is offering roundtrip tickets from London to New York from $441 and WestJet is offering roundtrip tickets from London to Toronto for £349. Oy, how badly do you want one of these new laptops? MB
