There is a list on this page.
macworld.co.uk/fea…amp

From the age given in the OP is say yes. But like ezzer72 I've a recent MacBook pro (2008) with butterfly keys and had no issues.
Mac user here but spend the extras to get a quad core model

Not working for me either
Where do you even enter the code?

Can anybody confirm this works? I have a gift card and a trade in so I would bite at this price.

You enter it along with the card details at the very end, however I am getting an error message saying that nothing in my basket qualifies. The terms state reserves and collect but still not working. CS team opens in less than an hour, will give them a call!

Yes but they will replace it when keys get stuck (for 4 years after sale date and can be done multiple times). It is supposed to be a 1 day turnaround now but last time I did it it took over a week so quite a hassle however sometimes they also replace the display and the battery and they keyboard replacement involves replacing the top case inc trackpad so you can end up with a brand new looking machine again after 6 months to a year when the keys usually die.

You mean 2018, right? Cos 2008 is ancient! Though they were better built then.

dwl9906/10/2019 08:13

Yes, everything after 2015 for the MacBook and 2016 for the Pro has a butterfly keyboard. They’re actually nice to type on til they break, then you’ll want to toss it out the window (or sell it on eBay as I did with mine once fixed) - the 2018 models have gaskets round the keys to stop stuff falling inside but it’s a prolonging measure rather than a long-term solution. Apple will replace it out of warranty but only once and it will happen again.

One to avoid then!

Depends. The hardware is good but all integrated (like the Surface range), I wouldn’t buy one again - I hated living in fear of the keyboard jamming or double/triple-typing letters and having to pay out of warranty. Due to the ‘clever construction’ out of warranty you’re looking at a £400 bill for an entire top cover assembly with battery.
dwl9906/10/2019 08:13

Yup. Apple know they’ve messed up, to the point where even the latest models have a four year keyboard warranty.
Just says out of stock now so code must have worked at some point for them to sell out.
Not sure why you would buy this over a much more powerful Ipad Pro 2018 with nicer touch screen and new Ipad OS for less money.

Just paid £831 for the 256GB 12.9” Ipad Pro.

You can get a keyboard if needed and even the Apple Pencil for more productivity.

Maybe because they want a computer and not an iPad.

IpadOS makes the Ipad pretty much a computer (comparable to mac) There is nothing you can’t do on an Ipad that you can do on a Macbook Pro since the update.

Not to say this isn’t a great laptop it just doesn’t compare in my mind. Just don’t want people to feel ripped off when paying more for less.

I’ve an iPad Pro. It’s not even close to being a useable laptop. iPad OS goes some way to changing that but if you need a laptop, as I do, for working at home, an iPad just won’t cut it and that isn’t changing with iPad OS.

Example: cut and paste. It’s a terrible experience on the iPad.

Curry’s honoured the code on the phone. I picked up a new MacBook Air (256gb) for £871 which I thought was very good given its £1,199 on Apple.com.

You can't use it for developer work, which is what MacBook Pros are quite popular for

The list of things iPadOS can’t do is nearly endless. It’s a great tablet but still can’t do things even android tablets from 5 years ago could do let alone actual computers. If you want something for media consumption, drawing and basic tasks then an iPad is about as good as it gets though.

Compared to a macbook as said the only thing it can’t do is developer options, coding and full mouse support. It also doesn’t have a trackpad but the benefits outweigh the negatives unless you need developer options.

sorry but thats nonsense, can it run windows? can it run linux? can it do basic network tasks like telnet, ssh etc, can you run vms? can you run your companies vpn and remote desktop client? can you do trivial things like split the screen vertically? Does it run macos legacy apps? It's a great device but its just an ipad and ipados is hardly any different than the previous version of ios.

Macbook doesn’t run Windows.. lol

The ipad does everything you mention except obviously Windows and Linux (because it’s Apple). I suggest you look into IpadOS it isn’t IOS anymore.

To start here is how you split screen. youtu.be/jBG…5H8

now turn your ipad 90 degrees and play a video on the top of the screen and open a browser or something on the bottom. Can't be done. Also yes macs can indeed run windows and linux and many do to get access to the millions of windows applications not available otherwise (look up Parallels to do it within a vm) You cannot run traditional applications on a mac, you can't even run old ios apps that haven't been updated to 64bit (I'm looking at you civ revolution) It is a highly capable but very locked down device and not comparable to a computer.

Fair enough but you can’t turn a Macbook 90 degrees and do that either.

you can connect it to multiple monitors including a verticle one where you can do that. and you could if you liked put a window above another or split into 4 etc. I'm not saying the ipad isn't great, I have an ipad pro and think it's brilliant but its not a computer even though it could replace one for many people.

You can use the Ipad as a second screen too.
I’d love an iPad Pro, but I’d still require a Mac/PC to run the Adobe applications I use.
