Yeah, stop it, anyone who says anything uncharitable about an overpriced Apple product is a Troll and not a well informed consumer oO

When people suggest that Macs are overpriced I imagine they are thinking that when looked at purely from the level of production cost and profit margin that Macs are uncompetitive compared to PCs.
It’s like comparing a dress from a high street retailer with a similar style of dress from a boutique that carries designer labels.
You pay a premium for the ‘label’ with some clothes and in some cases you get a better design and better quality of materials used.
Apple seem to have a ‘good’ design department and reportedly usually use good quality components (I refer to chassis and screens as most other things are the same as in Windows PCs) so from what I can tell you are getting a premium product.
So it’s purely a subjective call on whether you want to pay the premium ‘boutique’ price for a seemingly premium product; I say seemingly as I’ve never used a Mac so have no personal opinion on that.
Value for money is not really the point when you are talking about an item that has a degree of fashion attached to it. You have to pay the fashion premium even if you don’t care for that side of things at all.

I dislike Apple because of their ‘closed shop’ control freak mentality not because of their pricing. The company itself reminds me of Scientology and surely it’s only a matter of time before Apple applies for religious status. oO

Voted hot.

This is a big saving on RRP on a product that is rarely reduced in price and is therefore unquestionably a hotdeal! All these naysayers talking about Windows laptops forget one thing: If you want to run supported Windows you need to buy a Windows PC (or Mac), if you want to run supported Mac OS X Snow Leopard you need to buy a Mac.

- From unibody Aluminium body construction (rather than plastic) through to top grade industry premium components, screens and cutting edge interface options (Thunderbolt). Apple's offerings are premium specs.
- Apple's products aren't just examples of 'good' design, they demonstrate design excellence and have won major awards in product design across the globe. Just look at the number of Windows based attempts at copying Apple designs.
- The Apple brand is one of the strongest in the world not primarily because of some notion of it being purely 'fashionable'. In customer satisfaction, innovation, development, production techniques and technologies packaging into a usable user interface Apple leads the way. The reality is in the consumer PC market - where Apple leads, the rest of the industry follow and copy.
- Apple is often accused of being a 'closed shop', however unlike Microsoft its operating system and key software technologies are based on Open standards - QuickTime, H.264, HTML5, BSD/Unix... the list goes on. Apple uses proprietary systems, particularly with regard to IP imposed DRM and to create a secure and yes profitable iOS, but compared to Microsoft and Adobe there is simply no argument, the list is endless... DirectX, ActiveX, Flash...

If it weren't for Apple driving innovation in the PC, phone and tablet market, where would the PC, phone and tablet market be? Apple's innovation is good for all PC, phone and tablet users, including Windows and Android. Without the iOS we'd still all be stuck with the option of inferior versions of BlackBerry, Windows, Android and Symbian. Apple's competition has driven innovation in the development of these platforms and provided better product offerings for all users of all platforms.

Whooooooooooo caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaressss

but what I want to know, on the Apple website (probably everywhere else too) the 13" macbooks have i5 and i7 dual core CPUs while the 15" and 17" have i5 and i7 quad core CPUs, is there a huge difference between the two dual cores and the quad core i5/i7s?

Not unless the software you are using can take advantage of the extra cores. For example Photoshop is often quite happy to max out 1 or 2 cores, yet leave the others not doing anything. In cases such as this the higher clocked dual may be a fair bit faster than the lower clocked quad.

If more developers had their **** together then this wouldn't be a problem. I'd imagine there are thermal and power constraints with offering the quad in the 13".

I'm confused , the one at bestbuy has much more heat yet its more expensive ?

Was just about to post this too, it's an excellent deal! Potentially £810.93 after cashback!
