But why is it worth at least twice what non Mac would cost ?

Oh oh, here we go again....... :whistling:

It's worth more than something it isn't because it isn't that something. get it? :roll:

I hear M&S hand baked malted wheaten bread costs more than Asda white sliced too :)

Agreed. This is a bloody good price for a Pro macbook. I don't particularly want one either, I just know a good price when I see one!

Because it has an illuminated keyboard and a SuperDrive? :thumbsup:

I won't vote on this because whilst it may be cheap for this item, for a laptop it's ridiculously expensive so it's six of one and half a dozen of the other.

Because you're not going to have to replace it twice as often?

The Macbook Pro line is due a refresh soon so it may be worth waiting for that. I doubt it will be this price though.
#7
I think someone has just purchased the only one! It no says out of stock. When I come to replace my MacBook Pro I would want to get one without the glossy screen - I can't stand those screens. Stunning to look at in a pitch black room but as soon as there's any light then it's bounce, bounce, bounce with the reflections.

£765 for a 2nd hand laptop,,,Bargain,,,

Oh the old PC v Mac debate - I'm now staying well clear of this post!

Terrible price, a better spec'd PC laptop would cost half of that.

Once again people are paying for the brand and not the bang.
#11
To all above posters -

Don't you realise some people WANT the brand, and that for them it's a real bargain? Lots of other good priced refurbs on the Apple Refurb site too. Will update first post.
#12
All models seem to be OOS. :(

To the Mac naysayers...use one for a year, then provide an informed comment, rather than the SOS.

Good price voted hot. I am in the market for a new MBP, but going to hold out a bit longer for the new model.
#14
If your a student then you get 15% off all mac laptops, imacs and mac mini's if you access the store through your university network.

Also if you go to the education link on the site and click on the link that basically says "I'm a student but I'm on my home computer" you get 10% off - They do not check if your a student (mother who is 45+ used this trick plus quidco) so anyone can use it, been around for donkeys years.

Quidco also works for both.

And yet it would still probably run half as slowly! It's not the brand necessarily, but the coherence of the product which makes apple so appealing. Their specificity in terms of hardware and the quality of the finish make the price more than worth what you're getting. As a student who has felt the vice of Windows too many times, Mac OS X is a breath of fresh air!
#16
At the end of the day, it's a deal for a "Macbook Pro" for "Macbook" money.

How that isn't a hot deal, I've no idea! :thinking:

On a side note, if you can find a comparable Windohs laptop with the same graphics chipset, you could probably turn it into a OS X Hackbook...

Did that to my netbook and it boots up 20 seconds quicker than the supposedly super-efficient XP and won't slow down gradually over the months to come either.
#17
Voted Hot! good price only downside with Macs now is the inbuilt battery

Terrible post. A better thought out post would take twice the brain power.

Once again people are typing without putting their brains into gear.

Everytime a mac is posted all the Bill Gates Fanboys comeout from behind their de-fragging beasts, the main reason these people hate macs so much is summarised in the above link.

I used one for 18 months mate, they're over-hyped and under-compatible. I was thrilled to get back behind a PC laptop. I bought one for half the price of this deal and it's almost twice the spec.

I would not go that far regarding inferiority complex. The anti - Mac supporters are being a passionate fan of a particular object, which in this case is Intel PC. They are passionate about it so their blood boils everytime that they see the alternative objects. However there are plenty of parallels in life where objects serve the same need but have different pricing. An example would be a watch that costs £50 but very similar watch could be £80, £199, £150 etc.. The different pricing is achieved by product design and marketing. Different people satisfy their needs based on their own judgement on many factors where price is one such factor. They merely put ink to paper on their passion for a specific preference when there are lots of competiting products and services which serve or satisfy a particular need. The people who are passionate about a specific preference has either made valued judgement based on own requirements or brain washed by clever and smart marketing. Which in this case is Mac's recent success is not about the same thing that could be done cheaper on a PC. No one would want to pay double money for the same thing. Therefore in paying double money there are additional values which may be clear to one individual and may NEVER BE CLEAR TO OTHERS.

I guess some people must put £200+ worth on the apple brand. The OS is probably worth more windows ; not sure if Mac OS can be installed on non-apple laptops...
#23
Really? This is not fantastic considering if you have a friend/family at university, get the university academic discount and can get apple care cheaper for around the same price. It might be good for those whom can't get the latter BUT considering the NEW core i-intel series MacBook Pros are due soon, I would honestly wait.

I would also look at the Sony Vaio 14" VPCCW2s1e model, price at £650-700. It's a very capable machine with the Core i3-2.13Ghz 330M GT 512mb gpu, 4GB ram, 320GB HDD, Windows 7-64 bit. A strong contender to those whom are considering a mac. Runs anything you throw at it e.g. COD MW 2 to autocad. Can customise the microprocessor if you buy off the sony website.

Btw I have this model, bought it when it first came out. Despite being a die hard Windows-PC user, I have found it easier to e.g. write papers and essays when reading from multiple journals in PDF using expose.

Where is the link that lets you get 10% off if you're a student on your home computer? I can't see anything?

I have to go via the NUSExtra website after having logged in using my student ID.

I have Mac and I also have Windows PC. I prefer the Mac but have to keep Windows because the Mac just doesn't do everything I need it to and I have school age children. I got the Mac very cheap or I wouldn't have bought it. It's better than Win7 for my needs, but definitely not hundreds of quid better. Win7 has closed the OS gap quite a lot. Not quite there yet though.

Twice the spec? For half the price? I imagine you mean it's got 4gb of ram (probably ddr2, which is inferior anyway) and a larger hard drive capacity. I severely doubt it's got a 4.52ghz dual core processor :lol: and MacBook Pro's have a decent graphics chipset.

Then choose the bottom one "School or any other education establishment."

here is the direct link:
http://store.apple.com/uk-edu

Example:
macbook pro starts at £862 rather than £918 on main site

Plus do not forget quidco which should add up on a high purchase.

Oh please....I have been hearing this for MONTHS now. Guess what: once the the the new MacBooks are out, the next refresh will be coming "soon"
#29
Out of stock! You can get this at £789.60 via Student Discount though ;-)

If I put a Windows sticker on this can I download and legally install Windows 7 on this?
