. So yes it is definitely overpriced for an i5 1.4Ghz with 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD. The T450 will have better specs.

You are mad. This is a thin ultraportable ~ 1.3kg.

The T450 is a brick in comparison at ~ 1.8kg+. You can hardly compare the two.

Still overpriced, like all Apple products.

Id normally agree but not in this case. Please could you provide a link to a similarly specc'ed, well constructed ultrabook with 3 year warranty?

Do remember why Apple are sitting on cash pile of $216bn and struggling to think what to do with it...


They could have a stab at paying some tax.

As an Apple user for the past 26 years, I still wouldn't buy one of these. Far too slow and you could get a much faster PC laptop for the price.

Looks nice though! And if you got the cash to waste and prefer looks over substance - go for it!

Heat Added!

Are these the 2014 model?

Its last gen, not quite 2010

Fantastic deal, I'm not a big fan of the Air, but this has to be the best price ever for a brand new, well warrantied MacBook. Massive heat OP, good find.

Overpriced? How?
Have a look at Lenovo T450, or Dell Precision, any brand targetting business/creation industry
you will be surprised how cheap Macbook is.

Sorry, my bad, you are correct about the ram.

Processor and graphics though, meh.

4GB is plenty for this, they are used as a 'netbook' really, and it certainly isn't worth paying hundreds more for another 4GB.

This is a discontinued model that came out in early 2014. So yes it is definitely overpriced for an i5 1.4Ghz with 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD. The T450 will have better specs.

I agree with your first half of the sentence on your original comment.
It's overpriced, especially considering the lame screen resolution.
However, you did say "like all Apple product", which is the sentence I was questioning.

You might survive with just 4GB RAM, but it's upgradeable.
128GB SSD is also a limitation as you only really get 90GB or so for apps and photos and music and document and maybe 1 movie at best. You can expand it with a tiny USB drive but it will be much slower and not too elegant.
Honestly at this price it's not a budget offering anyway so get a better model or something really cheap instead like a refurb Lenovo business laptop for £199

The ram isn't upgradeable really, unless you're a computer scientist with the World's most accurate soldering iron. Obviously I'm being a bit tongue in cheek there, but they are pretty much stuck with the original ram.

I disagree with the 128gb thing too, my MacBook's are 512gb and 256gb, but it wouldn't be a big problem if they were just 128 really. macOS (formerly OS X ) only takes up around 15gb, not around 40gb as you claim.

It's not upgradable FYI.

I have one of these, but 8gb and 256gb.

It's a fantastic laptop, very well constructed and never crashed.

Lots of anti-apple idiots here (bananas?), but this is a good price and a good deal if you can live with 4gb (I couldn't).

Great price if you want a MBA...Will still be worth this in 12mths time. rarley you see an entry level Macbook at this price

Personally i think the MBA is heading for removal from the product line. The new 12" Macbook is a smaller lighter product and the Retina Macbook pro isn't much bigger in size now than the Macbook air and offers a lot more performance.

I see thread is filling up with Mac hating comments already by those who've never used one and just simply 'Don't get Mac's'

I work in enterprise IT and get a high end windows Ultrabook for free from my employer..a global computer manufacturer....
But my own laptop that I spent my own cash on was a Macbook Pro Retina.....and I'd buy it again tomorrow.

Thank you for your opinion. I have used Macs and I don't like them. I do "get them" but they are incompatible with a lot of what I do and they attempt to force you down a path I don't wish to go down through.

However, as much as I admire Apple for ripping people off, they are the modern-day pioneers of planned obsolescence. Instead of needing new goods because our old ones were broken, Apple have managed to get (some) people to want them for reasons of fashion and aspiration - awaking a consumer appetite that could never be satisfied.
