    Why do you feel Apple, or anyone, should not periodically adjust their pricing to account for massive weakening of foreign currencies?
    They did,

    All other big tech company, AMD, Intel, NVidia, Samsung, etc.. are adjusting their prices at the moment, they lower them.
    Apple, aka E-corp is the only one increasing their prices.

    If you have any actual evidence that a price increase on computers is related to the donation of medical supplies, I’d love to see it.

    I’m not sure why you’re so upset. It’s not like you’re buying Macs.

    There's no evidence to suggest a link between the two, but even so, do you think the virus cares about borders? This is why scientists condemn the idea about closing borders since it hasn't stopped previous outbreaks in the world. Even if it were true that the donation of masks are funded by customers including those outside of US, helping US handle COVID-19 is in everyone's interest globally. So if an increase in price enables help measures to stop the pandemic without any other effort than just paying for a new MacBook, I think that's a very luxurious way of helping to stop this global pandemic.
