You don't need all of that to cut the cord.

We use netflix, Amazon (we would have prime anyways), CBS all access (only when the shows we watch are on), and HBO GO (only when the shows we watch are on), and CW (free with ads).

$12 for netflix * 12
$10 for CBS * 6 for partial year
HBO $15 * 6 for partial year
Amazon (only a few shows that we like at $30-40 a season) Let's call this $40*4

That is $38 a month for TV service. and $125 for my 1gbps internet.

Comcast bundle according to is $160 a month for 75Mbps internet and 200 TV channels.

I'll stick with my cord cutting.

I'd say people doing their own upgrades didn't care about 'apple approved' parts. I bought dozens of macbooks for my employer with base specs and immediately popped a SSD and 3rd party ram in them upon receipt. It was way cheaper and if anything went wrong, I'd put the original parts back and send it in for repair.
