Only £599!!!. A small price to pay for being able to meet my aspirations of sitting in Costa posing with all the dozens of other Mac Booksters making out I am doing something important whilst I down a latte. Coolio.

thank you, I only purchased my MacBook Pro just over a month ago! Paid £1299!

You was robbed......could've got three real laptops for that. ....

You know as well as anyone that a similar specced Windows ultrabook (including specs such as aluminium, screen res etc) is more expensive than a macbook. Some specs don't exist on any windows laptop eg battery life of 12 hours. Stop trolling!

Wow. You got ripped off.
I paid £1200 for a brand new MBP 15" (latest model).

All of that to play facebook games as the processor is no way good enough to do what apple do best video and music editing. You can't game on mac as well as windows and even if you could they are so under powered they would not work.

"No way good enough to do what apple do best video and music editing"
Do you actually have any experience using a mac? My 2007 iMac is used daily for Final Cut Pro and photoshop and works fine. It scores around 3000 on mac tracker benchmark, the processor in this MacBook Air scores nearly 6000. So double the power of my old but capable iMac.

I think you'll find it's more than capable or "good enough" to what apple do best...

Not a bad deal at all.

Just very recently bought a Macbook Pro which is en route to my house straight from the factory in China. My first Mac ever and quite excited.

Paid £1200 (University discount) for the 13.3" Pro with Retina. 2.4GHz i5 with 16GB RAM and a 256GB SSD. Opted for the 16GB as I know it's not upgradeable and I opted for the lower size SSD as I know they are upgradeable. Included with my uni discount I also get 3 years warranty and a £60 gift card so i thought it's not overall a bad deal.

One question I do have if anyone can help. My card is yet to be charged and apparently they charge after shipment? I'm worried in case the Scottish women on the phone entered it wrong on the system. Coincidently after buying the notebook, my available balance went down by £1,200 but has since gone back up to my original amount. Does this mean the card she entered was correct and the funds going down was like some form a pre-authorisation? When do Apple usually take the funds or charge your card?

Be careful as I think by upgrading the ssd on these models will invalidate your warranty

Are Apple refurbs really refurbs of used models, or just new customer returns / old stock being knocked out cheap ??

Yes the old model. I think these are 650 brand new in currys and around 600 new for grey import on Amazon. I suppose this is a good deal if you don't mind refurb.

I have one of these and the stupid screen size makes it almost impossible to use.
Even with the resolution set to maximum.

If you want a mac, pay the extra for a decent size one, the 11.6" is ****.

I think lost people realise that an 11 inch screen isn't a great workspace and used for on the go. If I got one of these I would hook it up to a bigger screen when I'm at home

Odd. I have a 11.6 inch air and i find the screen perfectly usable. If i was editing pics/vids etc then i agree you would need something bigger but for your average day to day use its perfect.

Some people want an 11 inch screen for use on trains and planes, with the weight saving being significant.

You're in a minority there. Not many people go in that direction. I'd be interested to hear your reasons.

You should really try it. Next time you have a CV to type, or a bunch of emails to get through, thorw your Macbook in your backpack and head to Starbucks. A much more pleasant experience. There is a reason you see Apple products in coffee shops. Macbooks have 12 hours battery lives and are light.

No one wants to chuck a Windows laptop and power brick into a backpack, its too heavy and you need to find a plug.

I'd be curious why too. I moved from Windows to OSX back in 2004, and would never go back for my full time PC. Use Windows for work due to necessity, but OSX is a much more stable and reliable OS than Windows ever was for me.

Due to a flaming I got in another thread when asking for reasons behind a post here's the disclaimer...

- I respect your opinion totally.
- I think Windows is a perfectly good OS, just not for me.
- I'm not an apple fanboy - if they produce something rubbish, I'll say so, and won't buy it.
- I have more to do in life that spend time arguing about an OS/Hardware platform, so no reason to start now...

Just curious that's all :D

I use both a Windows (7) Laptop / PC and I have a Macbook Pro / ipad / iphone.
There are pro's and cons to both. I have never had any crashing / viruses etc. on either device - this is usually the users fault, not the OS.

My main issue with the Mac is their file system / browser. It just doesn't work as well as Windows Explorer imo. It sounds petty but I want my folders sorted alphabetically, folders first, then files, not all mixed together. lol.

I think the 'TBH' is a giveaway. It means please believe me, I'm being honest THIS TIME.

I thought the RAM was upgradeable? I've done it on mine but something might have changed since then (2013 model).

(1) What are Apple Certified Refurbished Products?

Apple Certified Refurbished Products are pre-owned Apple products that undergo Apple’s stringent refurbishment process prior to being offered for sale. While only some units are returned due to technical issues, all units undergo Apple’s stringent quality refurbishment process.

They are in 100 per cent working condition, and are then sold as refurbished product. As these refurbished products have been unpacked and manipulated, they might however exhibit some minor cosmetic imperfection, such as scratches, marks or discolourations.

Each Apple Certified Refurbished Product:

is fully tested (including full burn-in testing).
is refurbished with replacement parts for any defective modules identified in testing.
is put through a thorough cleaning process and inspection.
is repackaged (including appropriate manuals, cables, new boxes, and so on).
includes either the Mac OS originally shipped with the unit or, in some cases, a more recent version.*
is given a new refurbished part number and serial number.
is placed into a Final QA inspection prior to being added to sellable refurbished stock.
is repacked in special packaging (including appropriate manuals, cables, etc. that originally shipped with the unit).
Refurbishment procedures follow the same basic technical guidelines as Apple’s Finished Goods testing procedures.

(2) What should I expect when I purchase an Apple Certified Refurbished Product?

Substantial savings
A fully functional unit with complete documentation
The assurance that the unit meets Apple's rigorous quality standards, and that its defective components have been replaced by genuine Apple components

(3) Can I purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan for my Apple Certified Refurbished Product?

All Apple Certified Refurbished Products are covered by a one-year limited warranty. For extended coverage, you have the option of purchasing the AppleCare Protection Plan with your Apple Certified Refurbished Product. The AppleCare Protection Plan extends the complimentary coverage on your Apple Certified Refurbished Product to up to three years of world-class support.

Is there any hope for people who find it difficult to locate and install Windows 7? It's not rocket science.
