So, my macbook pro is nearly 3 years old and I am soon starting a new job (software developer in c#), so I thought about getting a new lappy. initially I wanted the new macbook that has been introduced few days ago (damn I wanted it for last few months), but was really disappointed by the models, especially the price. Given the fact that c# is windows, and win 10 is not that bad (have that on my dell latitude 7275), I sterted looking at higher end windows laptops.
SO now there is a deal on surface book, they give away free xbox. https://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msuk/en_GB/pdp/Surface-Book/productID.332604800
So the model I'm looking at is the i7/16gb/512gb ssd model. It is currently 2024ish with a 1TB xbone with fifa + a free wireless controller. On top of that there is 10% quidco. SO assuming quidco tracks, and I sell the xbox and pad, I'd be looking at around 1550 for the surface book. DO you reckon its a good price for the top model or shall I wait till black friday/christmas for better deals? this gives me great performance for 200 less than base new macbook (the one with oled bar), so it's definitely much better, but is it worth that much?
