    Luke just claimed the duo is highway robbery, meanwhile his beloved apple charges a grand for the stand to put their outrageously overpriced monitor on, and 499 bucks for wheels to put their outrageously overpriced desktop system on. Those in glass houses Luke.

    New one I found today. 129 dollars for a 6ft USB C cable. Apple are the kings of highway robbery!

    I think it is overpriced for only 4G, and an old processor.

    Depends on the usage. I agree the buy in is steep. But for an apple loving "journalist" to call it highway robbery? that's hilarious. My wife finally got her approval to work remotely for the rest of her professional carreer and she just got her work notebook from her office. They gave her a dock for home, etc. Included was a USB C cable the same as apples "pro" cable, it cost them like 5 dollars. NOT 129.99. That's highway robbery!

    Cool-aid drinkers will scoop them up and then talk about the superiority of said parts. I used to believe most people were roughly similar in intelligence but now that politics has exposed just how many willfully ignorant idiots there are out there I have no problem understanding how marketing sells that stuff.
