As the saying goes, "A fool and his money are soon parted".

People who can't afford to spend $6,000 on Apple's new MacBook Pro Display XDR can now at least buy the cloth that used to come with it, though strong consumer demand means it could be several more weeks or months before they actually get it.

Among a cluster of new products including laptops and speakers, Apple's $19 Polishing Cloth is proving to be a runaway hit. It's in such demand that the 6.3-by-6.3-inch cloth is "currently unavailable" at retail stores, and will take 10 to 12 weeks to be delivered if ordered online.

The heavy demand involves an accessory that could be viewed as overpriced, given that other brands of microfiber cloths are sold in packs of of six for under $9 on Amazon.
