The clue is in the title.........'temporarily oos'
Good deal. Shame about the low-res screen and 3 year old processor.

So this isn't the 2017 model?I'm confused!


It’s not that difficult to understand. It may be the 2017 model but some of the stuff used inside is dated.

Apple aren't very generous despite their prices. They still use dated hardware in new models to cut costs. This is the 2017 model, he was just pointing out that the processor has been out 3 years since its release. Which is quite disappointing when you're buying a laptop marketed as a premium and high end product

I sat one next to a rMBP. The difference when viewing a text document was staggering, I actually found the display on the Air deeply uncomfortable to use.

Still not Windows though!

Very true, I'm not bashing on apple entirely. The os and software definitely makes it something to desire for many and whilst the initial purchase price is high they'll hold their value a lot better than a standard windows build with the same specs

Yes but these days (pretty much since Win 7, so only 8 years or so, and definitely since Win10) that is less of an argument. Especially given the poor quality of recent Apple software releases.

These keep their value so even if you sell it in a years time max you would be down is 150ish. Wheres as you would be expecting to get half or even less if it was a Windows machine.

Apple products are brilliant when it comes to resale value,
It puzzles me why anyone buys this particular Apple product.

I have a MacBook pro and an iPhone and I genuinely love what they produce. But this really is a load a junk. Why? because the screen is 1,440 x 900... This a comical in 2017. Your phone is likely to have a higher resolution.

Cold for this reason, and anyone that has bough this, cancel immediately and get a MacBook (not air) or macbook pro.
4 year down and my "outdated" MBA still going strong. replaced 128gb with 512 and cant complain.
screen doesnt bother me for my general use
I have an iPad and iPhone, great products, but I just replaced my 2010 15" Song Vaio i7 with an Asus Zenbook UX300UA-FB100T from Amazon for £858.

It has a Core i7 processor, 8gb Ram, 512gb SSD, QHD+ display, 2 USB3, USB-C, SD card slot, touchpad with buttons too and multitouch, full metal case, it's the smallest thinnest thing I've ever seen 13" diagonal and most of the body under 1cm. And it absolutely flies, yet to do anything that is not snappy and instant, powers my UHD TV as a second monitor without a second of delay...

Basically it's amazing and £858 and the spec beats this on virtually every category - I specced up a Mac which I genuinely considered but the price was double if not more.

In this case, despite being a massive iPhone and iPad fan, I have to say the Zenbook has won for me.

For the love of god! Where are the deals on a MBP? If anyone knows of any, please direct me... thanks
I know it has an Apple logo which makes many people go nuts, but seriously, this is a bad deal. It is a very old processor, and a safely sub-HD screen. My Nexus 5 from ages ago has a higher resolution screen. I get that some people are still massively anti-windows, but all the rhetoric relating to Windows is essentially dead with Windows 10.

More specifically, not a week goes by in my workplace (University) where I don't encounter a Mac user bemoaning the lack of development for the main software tools they want to use on Mac.

6-years down and my Windows PC is still going strong. I've replaced nothing in it.

As for your screen, I'm pretty sure you'd be bothered, admitting or not, if you were to spend a decent amount of time with a decent screen.

I use Windows and OsX machines daily. I go between them throughout the day and really don't find a major difference. I preferred OsX until Win10 but now feel they're pretty much equal. Regarding this machine, it IS shocking that they're charging so much for a machine with such a weak screen. I struggle to understand how people using machines for serious work don't notice. I use a 4k screen in my office and it's light-years ahead of 1080P for getting work done. This machine isn't even close to 1080P.
Reading the comments above, I must say I agree. I own a rMBP, and a couple of Microsoft surfaces. The MacBook Pro is great, as are my surfaces, but the MacBook Air (a few of my friends own it) really isn't worth the money. Yes the operating system for OS in my opinion beats windows, but the screen is terrible, and for the same money you can get a really nice windows machine such as the zen book mentioned above or even a nice hp two-in-one which although not macOS, the quality of the laptop really makes you feel much better when using the device. Also, most people don't sell devices until a good few years, and MacBook airs don't really hold onto their value after a few years, it's the pros which hold onto the value, so all in all, I'd suggest steering clear of the MacBook Air, if you can't quite afford a MacBook Pro, look for an older 'used' MacBook Pro of maybe 2015, maybe one with Apple care, they're a much better machine and will probably cost around £600!

Depends how canny a buyer you are as I'd consider a £150 depreciation in one year as being high for the Latitude systems I buy,
Looks great

how much did you pay for it at the time? how much is it worth now? shall we do some speed tests like startup times, battery life etc?
and no screen doesnt bother me

Apple effectively discontinued the Air when the MacBook came out 2 years ago, that’s why they’ve not spent any money on R&D putting new CPUs/GPUs/screens in the Air, because they brought out a new model to replace it!
How does this compare to an ipad pro 12.9 with keyboard?
Love my 2013 mba, i5, 4gb ram, 128gb hard drive. Hooked up to a NAS so don't need loads of drive space for photos and videos. Use it solely for web development and it still flies along most of the time. Beautifully made, great keyboard and trackpad, thin light. Yes the screen is poor by today's standards but it's a good aspect ratio and the retinas suck up battery and processor so need a better spec and thicker body for similar perf.

I still wouldn't get one in 2017 though. Much better options around, Windows and Mac.

Not everyone has pinsharp vision and can deal with high resolution screens. I have a MacBook Pro and an old MacBook Air and find that people overexaggerate the differences in screen quality. If you spend your time flitting from one to the other you will notice the difference, otherwise you won’t care.

Having said that, this is what this model should have been priced at all along. It is old technology and is costing Apple much less to produce than its current MacBook lineup.

So sorry about the name thing
Had my MBA since 2012 so 5.5 years and still running like a dream. You can be sure it will last a long time and hold its value well.
being a non-believer £800 to access all the imoney products seems to be an ideal gift for the unwitting generous gift buying relative.
an £800 media streamer.
imoney products, all your desires realised

+1 for the zenbook. I got an i5 one for 650 from Costco and it is amazing. The qhd screen is a thing of beauty. The boot time is lightening and the battery lasts ages.

Sales are not that high and that way Apple gets the chips for next to nothing. Long term I expect App,e to abandon Intel similar to how they abandoned their IOS GPU supplier.
