I feel that pain too.
When I bought my Mac Plus, my mother had to help me - comparatively speaking (I mean compared with my income) I seem to remember it was even more expensive in those days! Anyway, my perfectly fine iMac (mid-2011) can’t go beyond High Sierra. Wondering whether to scrape up enough for a new one, tho funds are low - anyway will Apple France deliver during the lockdown?

I don’t know how old yours is, but I usually get 5-6 years out of a Mac laptop, and that means my $$$/yr stays in just in the painful range, and I keep doing it (3x now). So for me it is the cost of my hobby or a cost of doing business.

This means I have to scrape up $1,800 minimum to get even a 2018 MacBook Pro. And then you get what you buy because memory and hard drives are now soldered in so no upgrades can be done </rant>
