Baby Boomer: I paid $1300 for my 1st car.
Greatest Generation: I paid $1300 for my 1st house.

These things are relative.

A Levittown house in 1947 was a deal and cost $6990, not 1300. That's $79,584 in current dollars. $1,300 in 2017 is worth about $114 in 1947.

So yeah, a flagship iPhone is expensive, but it's not that expensive.
