I make the statement more based on value for the customer. The previous non-Touch Bar model was a poor value next to a 2018 MacBook Air. Gaining the Touch Bar and Touch ID adds some value, but there is still the "big difference" between a MacBook Pro and a MacBook Air. Not sure those first two things are worth $200, although I suspect they will sell a lot of computers.
