With Apple’s MacBook Pro now available in the UAE fetching sky-high prices, we did the calculations to see how many shawarmas you could buy for the same cost. Why, you ask? Well, because we love shawarmas and we clearly have too much time on our hands.
You can get 2,335 shawarmas for the price of a 16 inch Apple MacBook Pro!
Based on an average street shawarma in Satwa costing Dhs 5, we calculated a 16-inch 2.3GHz 8-Core Processor Apple Macbook Pro lappie is equivalent to the cost of a whopping 2,335 shawarmas! Not to mention the vinegar-dipped vegetables, you get them for free upon request too.
Here’s our breakdown of how many shawarmas you can get for the price of Apple’s new Macbook Pro laptops:
Latest MacBook Pro dubbed “the world’s best pro notebook”
Sure, you could get a lifetime supply of shawarmas for the price of a MacBook Pro, but Apple claims it’s “the world’s best pro notebook” made for those who rely on a Mac “to create their life’s best work.”

What comes with the hefty price tag, is a 16-inch Retina Display, the latest 8-core processors, up to 64GB of memory, next-generation graphics with up to 8 GB of VRAM and a new advanced thermal design, making it the most powerful MacBook Pro ever.
Here are the most advanced features that do justice to the price:
Largest retina notebook display
For those into photography, film-making and all-things visual, the latest MacBook Pro features a resolution 3072×1920 and a higher pixel density of 226 PPI. Each display is individually calibrated in the factory for accurate gamma, white point and primary colours.
8 TB of storage-the largest ever in a notebook
On stand configurations, the MacBook Pro’s SSD storage has been doubled from 512 GB to 1 TB. However, those with large collections of photos, videos and media assets can configure the laptop to a whopping 8 TB of memory capacity!
The days when this was the reality of saving files are long behind us…
Improved cooling capacity
We’ve all been there, with our laptops heating during a final mission while gaming or after countless hours of work. The MacBook Pro, however, is capable of sustaining 12 more watts during intensive workloads than the last models, with a 28% increase in airflow, and a heat sink that’s 35% larger.
