Great Deal. Anyone who says that their 2 year old laptop is 2ghz doesn't really know much about computer processors. The amount of ghz is important, but you must consider the cache, FSB as well as quite a few other factors.

It also has DDR3 RAM ;) not 2

Good deal if you can't find someone in education to get one for you (uni student, maybe even school).

I was wondering how long it would take for this thread to degenerate into nonsense. Too late :whistling:

Hot deal :thumbsup:

Yup, Mac threads just seem to attract f*cktards...

I may be wrong but I think the educ discount also gives you an extra years Apple-care which is worth having on a portable machine but good deal either way!

You get a 3 year warranty for parts and labour, but it is not technically Applecare which has other additional benefits. :thumbsup:

That's fine, most Windows apps are ****, and for games I can install XP on Boot Camp and play to my hearts delight.

With apple though, you're paying for the brand. You could quite easily find the pc equivalent for around £400. Not voting either way... but I can't understand someone would pay this much for this other than they 'prefer the OS' or 'like the look of it'

Good price ... and heat added ... though I cant help but feel that they should be priced at around this price point direct from Apple anyway ... if they were they would be selling like err hot apples.

Hook me up with a link where I can buy a PC made from a single sheet of aluminium for increased strength and reduced weight that has a freaking huge trackpad that can recognise up to 4 fingers for different gesture commands. Not just for £400 but for any price under the sun.

Ever heard of Parallels?

I dont use a Mac but even I know of this software, you can install Windows and run Windows apps simultaneously and seemlessly within OSX.

Are people convinced that AD will honour this code? I've had very bad experiences with Marshall Ward (same group) codes in the past.

BTW, can the PC trolls just shut up - it's boring.

Very nice saving. Hot. :)

It's the old adage that Mac's are impenetrable.
They're not, but there is much less in the way of actual viruses for the Mac (in fact most of those in the wild are predominantly proof of concept or have little danger in them). Mac's are still at risk from the biggest risk out there: The User. Most malware on the mac requires you to explicitly install it yourself due to the way programs are managed in OSX.

The biggest threat on the Mac is the kind of threat that is OS independent (e.g. phishing attacks, dodgy firefox plugins etc). Safari only just got anti-phishing features in it the other week (something Firefox has had for over a year)

Note that Apple only ever say it's 'virus-resistant': Most online threats nowadays are not viruses at all.

/writing this on my Macbook! :-D
#24
Excellent saving - I hope Additions honour it!
#25
Hot!! Works for the iMacs as well (which is what I'm looking for)

this deal is AMAZING if they honor the codes!

Don't feed the troll! This is a twelve yr old kid who only every posts utter nonsense.

Ive got a XPS m1330 atm which I love but if I didn't have this I would def go for this. very hot deal :thumbsup:
#28
superb price - also worth considering using on the iMac's.

With quidCo factored in you could potentially get the 24" 2.8ghz model for £883, or £959 without.
So very tempted.

With the same build quality and equivalent packages (iLife)? Doubt that very very much. You pay for the quality of the laptop, the software and operating system.

Please tell me how it could be infected, having been a Mac user for years and never hearing of any 'infections' whatsoever.

Consider him starved.

Also, the m1330 is a cracking laptop too (*wants work laptop back D:*)

"A handful of viruses have been written that targets Mac's OSX, but most have been demonstration versions only and few have had any significant impact on Apple users.

One piece of malware, known as AppleScript.THT, could take control of a Mac and grab screenshots or keystrokes. "
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7760344.stm

So it is possible but it is very unlikely. But to be fair on a pc unless you are a complete idiot and go on naughty site or download illegal things regularly or download attachments from a dodgy email you can stay virus free it must be a good two years of steady pc since I have had a virus.
#33
If this combination of voucher and quidco works for a £799 imac, then it could come down to £618.
Or the 24" Imac would go down from £1149 to £889.

Now that would be awesome.

Is this code legit? Surely this is too good to be true?

Uni student discount on a macbook pro is 16%, guess it would be the same for regular macbook??
Certainly wouldn't be more than that I don't think...

haha (to the guy who saying it is not compatible with windows apps and games)

It is like saying Windows isnt compatible with Mac applications! What a idiot

and a mac is compatible if you want to use windows, I wouldnt know why you would though

Plus if you factor quidco - you save more than the HE discount.

And you can buy now pay may with the additional voucher
#37
I shall do my best to ignore the posts of those who comment and yet are blatantly ignorant of what they speak. This is a very good deal however, be aware that this 13" MacBook does not have a FireWire port. If like me you have many FireWire HDs, camcorder e.t.c. then you'll have to look to the MacBook Pro to be able to use your kit.

I was under the impression that you couldn't use Quidco if you used the student discount, but I don't know for sure. We phoned our order through because we needed to alter the spec anyway, so no chance of Quidco then!

I download naughty things all the time, nothing has ever happened to my computer. I wouldn't deem malware a virus, but either way, it doesn't exist as a threat to any Mac user (software updates!) and I doubt anything will happen in the future to bother us. So to reiterate, there are no viruses for Macs, unless - of course - your Mac has Windows on it.
