£1499.00 @ John Lewis
It is the old model and refurbished but considering the Core i7 processor, dual graphic cards, 16Gb of RAM, 512GB SSD and a 3 year guarantee seems like a good deal if you need that sort of power. Read More

Good price

5th gen i7 (the world is on 7th gen). Price is better than RRP but not sure why people should buy a "pro" laptop with out of date processors.
#3
Dual graphic cards is a bit misleading, it's not exactly an SLI/Crossfire setup.
Iris Pro onboard plus a single M370X (2gb) which is a pretty weak GPU.

The latest MacBook with 2.6ghz i7 and similar spec to this is nearly £3000 with 3 years AppleCare . That's why!!

Seems like a good price to me, not sure why people are voting cold on this.

By far the best price available for this product anywhere!

It's actually a 4th gen i7, the new model uses the 6th gen as the 7th gen quad core HQ mobile parts aren't out yet.

I would trade the 5%of speed increase for £1000. By the way mac is on 4th gen CPU, intel basically skipped 5gen.

Great price on this! They were £1609 from the Apple Refurbished store a month ago, so HOT for me!

Another potential good deal voted cold by a bunch of haters...

The same laptop new from the Apple Store with 3 years AppleCare is £600 more, The comparable latest model with the touchpad, 2.6ghz i7 and better graphics card and 3 years AppleCare is £3000. Plus you will have to buy adaptors as it doesn't have USB's etc.
I was in the Apple Store last week, looked at both this model and the newest one. I wouldn't use the touchpad, rarely use the F keys anyway. Plus use USB's daily would be stuffed if I left the adapter at home

After much consideration between this, a new 2015 Iris Pro and the 2016 model, I went for this. Even with work discounts at 15%, it wasnt really worth it for my use.

Just hope its in new condition.

Cool. Best to check the battery information in settings too and display. Cosmetics is the main priority for me, any hardware issues, I'll just take it to the Apple store.

most people will just compare it to another equivalent spec notebook. not specifically another apple notebook.

Just a word of warning on this. The model listed on the website is for the 2015 model. I have just received mine today and they have sent out the 2014. After taking it back to John Lewis (and queuing for over an hour) I was told that the stock is for the 2014 model and this is all they have in the warehouse. So, John Lewis are misleading via their add by listing the incorrect model.

For those thinking of purchasing the MacBook, two things to consider in terms of main differences between the 2014 and 2015 MacBooks. Both models are very close in spec, expect for:

1) Different graphics cards. Although I'm not sure how much performance difference there is between the GeForce (2014 model) and the Radeon R9 of the 2015 model.
2) The SSD in the 2015 model has nearly double the read speed when compared to the 2014 variant. Write speeds should be noted as nearly the same.

Damb :( receive mine tomorrow and was looking forward to it! Very poor from John Lewis
#19
Now listed with just a Two year warranty!!
#20
Same for me. Mine arrived today and is the 2014 model. I called John Lewis and they said I had to take it to the store in order to exchange. Which I did. And as you can imagine trying to get parked and then queuing for ages is not the best way to spend your day off work. Eventually spoke with the 'Apple Expert' who didn't have a clue what they were talking about. I told them that the model advertised has a AMD Radeon R9 M370X graphics card which is for the 2015 model. The model they sent has a NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M card from a year earlier. Still they couldn't understand, so we ended up Googling it and eventually they understood the difference. Meanwhile the eyes from the line of infuriated customers also returning goods, burning in to my back. There was no apology only monumental cluster ***k on my refund because they couldn't refund in store because I had paid through Paypal.

I managed to reorder another, on the off chance that a 2015 model will turn up my way. I'm not really holding tight on that one. So far, John Lewis have taken £3k off me (still trying to sort out the refund) and are trying to flog me a dodgy Macbook. So much for the top service they talk about.

Oh, and that 3 year warranty that has mysteriously disappeared from their website.... don't get me started on that.
#21
Mines supposed to be here tomorrow, it'll most likely be the 2014 model and the 2015 model is quite a bit faster so I'm not paying £1500 for a 2014 model, even if it was new.
It'll be going back and I'll take it as a sign to get the new MBP 15" with Radeon 450 gpu, £500 more for a new condition and being considerably better, despite no MagSafe is justifiable for me.
#22
Mine has just arrived, its the 2014 model FGXC2B/A clearly says it on the box so no need to open and power up. Problem is I do not think i will notice the difference but in the back of my head I will so im sending it back as its not what is advertised and clearly is some copy paste error on the website.
#23
I was going to buy this based on the spec listed on the JL site, bullet dodged. It'll be interesting to see how JL respond with this.
#24
2014 model, returning it and going for the 2016 model.
#25
Just spoke to John Lewis, they couldn't guarantee that if you re-order that you will get the 2015 model as from their system and the invoice it states FGXC2B/A and thats what they sent out. Its a copy paste error on the website description and they sending out a courier on Friday to pick up the laptop for a full refund (including postage). Just gutted and now on the hunt again for an ok priced Macbook pro with a good size storage

Good luck with that :(
#27
And one thing to note they were willing to refund an amount but it would have taken 48 hours for investigation. (to be honest the amount would have to have been 500 for me to be happy in my head as its a 2 year old refurbished laptop)
#28
I got offered £50 in vouchers, still over priced. Being collected tomorrow.
#29
Did you call John Lewis to get the vouchers?
#30
Yeah, said its the wrong model. I didnt want to waste petrol going to Trafford Centre or wait upto 14 days for a refund by returning it myself via Post Office.
#31
I have not taken delivery yet of my order but for the people who have is it a brand new unit or refurbished like it says ?
#32
I ordered this on Monday and should receive it tomorrow. For the avoidance of doubt, it should be the MJLT2xx/A model (from Apple's website).

I've just contacted John Lewis and spoke to 3 different people, all 3 said they were unsure of the model number and they had no way of confirming it. The last person i spoke to told me it will be as described and if not to contact them and i'd be refunded and compensated. Can't really see it, this model would be almost £2100 new from Apple, but fingers crossed it is as decribed :|
#33
I didn't open mine but the general consensus is that Apple uses a new unibody and battery, everything else is returned parts. If its anything to go by the packaging, I'd be surprised if it has any cosmetic flaws. Possibly the best packaging for a "refurb" I've ever seen. I bet you could mistake it for a new item if it didn't have the word refurb on the box.

I just got mine delivered today... it's completely not what John Lewis specified on the website. The website says that it has the force touch trackpad and AMD Radeon graphics card, which I think is the 2015 model. The one I received was a 2014 model without the force touch track pad and a previous NVIDIA graphics. I've rang John Lewis and they said they'll replace it with another one. Now I'm hoping that the other one is what they specified on the website. If anyone else received the model without a force touch track pad and NVIDIA Graphics instead of AMD, let me know. Maybe I received the 2014 model instead of 2015 by accident.

No accident, if you see the above posts the only models they have are the 2014 models, the invoice model number and product numbers match the 2014 model, its a misprint on the website.
#36
So not a chance of a positive outcome on this then
#37
Just received mine this morning and it is the 2014 version. Called JL and they said it would take 12-48 for the Customer Service Team to get back to me. FFS.
#38
Still haven't changed the page on the site, idiots!
#39
Mines been collected, poor that the webpage hasnt been updated despite numerous claims its the wrong spec.
#40
Just received mines, model from June 2014. Model number is fgxc2b/a

a 2 1/2 year old refurb for £1500, absolutely raging, i phoned 3 times yesterday and was assured it would be the as described model. On the phone to them just now.
