Seems like a great price, was just looking at getting a second hand one, but they go for around this anyway!

Very, very, very tempting... but may personally wait out in the hope they make the 13" i3 soon.

Anyone know whether this will run WoW & Sims 3 ok? They work fine on my macbook pro 15 inch, i5 processor etc - but not sure about the 13inch dual core, which could be an option for my OH if the games work.

Yes but don't forget that if you qualify for student pricing you also get 3 year hardware warranty included rather than the usual one year warranty. (I know because my daughter bought one last week). That's a saving of £199 on the usual Apple price of an extended warranty.

Comes in a plan cardboard box, if that make a difference to anyone. Could affect re-sale value as it's packaged like a refurb !

They are giving 3 years free now?

Last year you had to pay like £46.

Woot! The best buy I've made in years, paid £50 more a few weeks back. Do not hesitate!

That and you usually get a free ipod touch or something like that, I only got an ipod nano when i bought my macbook but with the sale of that and the HE discount my macbook white cost me £535 which in 2007 was about the same price as similarly specced core2 pc laptops, that said I've given the mac os a fair chance, used it throughout my phd, all the groups computers are imacs too and I wouldn't ever buy a mac system again, windows 7 is just far superior and the build quality of a macbook isn't that much better than a good laptop to pay nearly double the price.

You can also buy 3 year technical support for £40 + vat. That is probably what you're referring to. My daughter also added that to her package.

From Amazon or the Apple education store? I ordered the 15" i5 MBP 6 months ago from Amazon and it came in the original Apple "pizza" box albeit inside a plain brown box for transit. I'd be surprised if Apple started shipping all MBPs in plain boxes as that's not exactly par for their aesthetic standards!

Some people really like splashing cash on these cardboard boxes.

*thinks*

Hey guys, I got this really slim box. It has tech from about 5 years ago but dont worry, I drew an Apple symbol on it.

Who wants to start the auction?

Do I hear £200?

Very tempted, and quite a few Nectar points with this? :)

They're more than twice the price of PC laptops, and more than twice as good....

Is this the latest Macbook Pro model though, or is it an old model?

It's the latest model in the Pro range but there are much higher performance machines like i5 and i7s.

Incorrect both people. The warranty gets extended to 3yrs, but it's not Apple Care so isn't a £199 saving, it's more like a little bonus for students/teachers. Apple Care for HE students on this MBP is £47 which is a saving of over 75%. Also don't forget Apple Care is World-wide so if your laptop goes bang whilst in USA (for example), you can still get it fixed.

In regards to the free iPod - that's only once a year during the "Back to School" promotion which usually runs early July - early Sept. There's currently a free printer promo/£70 towards a printer.

I checked on the Apple site and Educational Pricing comes in at £938.

Is it any cheaper for a Higher Educational user?

+1 Such a rip off.

It's an "early" indication that Apple is revamping their MBP with the i3,i5 or i7 for their whole range ;)
#28
Well I've gone & done it, after a year or so of umming & ahhhhing over getting a MacBook.. I've just ordered this one! Fantastic price!!

I get NHS discount from the apple site and this price beat that too!!

Can't wait for it to arrive now!!!

Thanks op x

Super hot. Best 13" laptop available for portability (which is what 13" ers are for anyway :) ).

Waiting for the usual stream of jealous Apple haters to flood this thread.

With the new update it only really runs on low settings, but theres no real significant difference due to the resolution of the screen, apart from maybe viewing distance. I get 60fps in Dala on low-fair settings.

£858.93 incl. VAT on HE link but remember that includes 3yr warranty.
#33
Applecare which is the extended warranty, you still have to pay for. I know this because I've just got student discount on a Mac + Apple Care yesterday!

This is a good price for a good laptop. I <3 my Air though and I actually sold this one to get it. :)
#34
Just ordered last night and due for delivery tomorrow. Cheaper than my NHS discount and couldn't work out how to do the HE as I'm with the OU, so may not be applicable.

Got a Macbook 13' Core2duo which I am going to fleabay. It should pay off a good chunk of this!

This one should last me a good few years. Who cares if they bring out an i3 or i5 one, it won't be at this price for a couple of years and when it does I'll trade up again. Really hot deal for me!

I'd say the only thing they have over the majority of PC laptops is the lovely build quality and - of course - the "alternative" operating system, if you're into that kind of thing.
