Apple have recently reduced their prices and so I thought I'd try my luck with John Lewis. They were advertising this laptop originally for £2199. They agreed to reduce the price and better Apple's price plus the added bonus of a 2 year warranty.
Thank you for your enquiry.
I have looked into your request and I am happy to confirm that we have lowered our price of the Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display, ME294B/A, Intel Core i7, 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM, 15.4" to £1899.00 which is below Apple's price at £1999.00.
The item is available to view on our website.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.
