This is a refurb unit - meaning that someone has brought it back in-store as they no longer require it due to various different reasons. All refurb units go through thorough checks at Apple's HQ and then resold. In most cases, if not all, these Macbooks are in brand new condition and due to laws/regulations - Apple are not allowed to sell these as 'brand new'. Example: you buy a product, you open the packaging and then decide you no longer want it because you've seen the same item elsewhere with a better offering.

Very good price considering its £929 brand new.

1 year warranty included

13.3-inch 1280-by-800 pixel LED-backlit display
2GB memory
160GB hard drive
8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
Built-in iSight camera
Standard keyboard

3% quidco too...

Nice find, as long as you don't mind the glossy screen the new Mac laptops are amazing. Got one of the new MBP and it's just phenomenal.

You know them gloss screens are like Marmite... you either like them or you don't. Its a very difficult taste (thing) to acquire.. personally it annoys the hell out of me having to look at the gloss screen... really annoying seeing the light reflections and not to mention ugly ol me :-D

People if your are buying a laptop try getting one with a matte anti glare screen... not glossy one..... you will thank me in the long run.... especially when your outdoors or at a coffee shop etc..... where the sunlight can 'hit' your screen....

Similar spec laptops are available for £400 - don't think it's a bargain in terms of hardware but it is very pretty.

This is a MAC though... not a PC... more of a luxury item for people who don't really know how to use computers :P

Not wanting to start a fight, but where can you get a laptop with the build quality and the following components for £400:

CPU:
Intel P7350
CPU Speed: 2GHz
Bus Speed:1066 MHz
L2 Cache Size: 3MB

RAM
2gb of 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM

LED backlit display

5hr battery life as standard without a protruding battery! (and with apple 5hrs is what you WILL get)

Multi-Touch

2.04 kg

13.3" in size!

I just think it's fair to let people know that they're paying a premium for a picture of an apple!

5hr battery life is good but people need to compare like for like - for £430 you can have a VAIO wilth a graphics card! This is pretty but it's £800 - refurb.

Correct me if im wrong... people buy a Mac system because of the OS right? In which case, they have no other option but to pay the premium (which is well worth it). One could argue using a hackintosh... not everyone (including myself) knows how to do it.

Except for the Sony is not the same. You pay a premium for a performance laptop with a 13" screen, the sony has the 8400 video chip which is prone to overheating and bricking the machine, the Apple is milled aluminium, has a faster bus speed....
#11
It doesn't have a faster bus speed. I'm just saying that people need to understand they're paying a premium for PC hardware - Mac vs PC is a pointless debate... you need to compare like for like.

There are advantages and disadvantages.

As stated above the Apple has the Intel P7350 with a bus speed of 1066 where as the Sony states a T5750 with a bus of 667.

Showing a link to a totally different spec product and saying people need to compare like with like is totally contradictory.

Admitted I'd probably be in the camp of paying less for a lesser product.

They are the same though, apart from the OS, the architecture is the same hence why they run Windows. In a benchmark test this machine would easily outperform the sony machine due to the massive difference is bus speed and size. This is a far superior machine technically than your Sony machine bar the graphics, coupled with the smaller size, superior battery and weight you will pay a premium for that like with any 13.3" machine.

For an XPS machine 13.3" with an upgraded LED screen and upgraded CPU to an Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T8100 (2.10 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 3 MB L2 cache) as they don't do an option with a bus speed of 1066mhz along with a larger hard drive, 3gb of inferior 800mhz DDR2 SDRAM ram and a 128MB nVidia® GeForce® 8400M GS is £859 delivered.

Now this is better for the money in general but you get inferior ram and a poorer CPU and you don't get Mac OS or the quality of the machine. Yes you pay a premium, but you must look at the COMPONENTS of the machine and the processor especially. My Macbook pro is now 18 months old and the T7500 processor still compares with most high end laptops that are on the market right now.

I have used my apple macbook pro to only run windows sp since the last 6 months and would not trade it for any other laptop. Forgetting all the superior internal specs, the intuitive mouse pad and ease of adding all your xp drivers would itself pay for the extra I paid the the macbook. Not to mention the reduce strain of using the mousepad. I know I can use an external mouse but as I travel very frequently I keep on forgetting the mouse in the hotel or my office.
I don't need to charge it during my 3 hour flight around europe including the airport waiting time.
