Get the latest Apple Macbook Pro 13.3" retina (late 2016) model with the new touch bar feature, touch ID and two additional thunderbolt ports, 2.9 GHz processor and upgraded intel Iris graphics to 550 (from 540) for £200 less than the apple RRP.
This makes it a great value compared to the base model at £1449.
You can also get the higher spec top of the range for £200 less too.
Appreciate that others out there will prefer microsoft ( i personally do) and some will have student offers for slightly less but this is available to all.
Plus you get the extra year warranty and John Lewis Customer service included.http://www.johnlewis.com/new-apple-macbook-pro-with-touch-bar-intel-core-i5-8gb-ram-256gb-13-3-/p3001989?colour=Space%20Grey
