Apple products are rarely discounted but I found this at Debenhams. MacBook pro with touchbar, dual core i5, 256gb is £1749 in Tesco, Argos, Currys, John Lewis and A.O. but £1583 in Debenhams Plus. I tried to purchase through 3% Top Cashback but I don't think Debenhams Plus counts. This deal about 9%, others up to 26%

    The highly discounted models are all old, replaced models eg the MacBooks with M3 and M5 processors, MacBook Pro with iris Pro and MagSafe. Whilst to some people this is not a problem, most retailers would give the release date in the title so people would understand the reason for the discount.
    New models are out in 2 months

    Good find Op! Good savings relative to their RRP, but then the discounted prices should have been the standard price anyway before Apple decided to jack them up 2 years ago. Debenhams Plus is technically online only I think, wondering if John Lewis might price match some of the deals.

    But will cost considerably more, so not a direct issue.

    I agree the older models have higher discounts but my point is ANY discount on Apple products is rare. 9% on 2017 model was pretty good for me
    Do you think they will accept
    Far better for the money out there even with the discount. Apple gave up innovating with the MacBook line about 5 years ago.

    Even with Mac mini lol
    Whom ever buys MacBook at these prices are a mug. Outdated tech and Mac OS is garbage. Huge problems with high sierra.

    there were some offers of ASUs GX501VI (i7) going for £1,200 - £1,500 far better machine

    And what will said ASUS be worth in a year's time? My 2009 MacBook still has residual value that makes it much better value than any Windows laptop I could have bought. These devices are so expensive now it's worth taking a longer-term approach to the investment.

    Zero problems with High Sierra here.

    And that Asus thing along with looking silly (typical multi coloured ‘gaming’ design) appears to be around double what you quoted.

    Life isn’t all about playing games, trust me.

    I agree that the current line of Macbooks needs looking at as there are some serious issues, but to say Mac OS is garbage is crazy. It's one of the things that keeps users going back despite the hardware not being great at the moment. I have a 2012 rMBP which gets used at least 9 hours a day, five days a week, then at weekends. It is carried around every day to and from work, the battery still lasts about three hours and its still incredibly fast.

    Prior to this I had many laptops, Dell, Asus etc and average lifespan was around 18 months before they became slow, chargers broke, batteries failed. Yes they are expensive but I've yet to see any of my colleagues or friends abuse a machine like I have and still have it running day in day out five and a half years later.

    The thing that keeps most Apple users going back is the marketing department.

    As a former Apple user myself I can say that there is no objective reason to buy these things anymore. They were the number one for a few years but not close now. Even the 'its worth a bit in a few years' argument is dead now as you can say the same for some premium Windows laptops, particularly the Surface line.

    The fact you can spend 2k on a laptop without a touch screen is laughable and you cant tell me most people don't want it. A cursory look around an apple store to see the greasy finger prints all over the screens tells you people downright expect touch these days.

    Do yourself a favour and make a pro con list versus the surface laptop or dell xps etc. You will save some cash and get a better product to boot.

    I have been doing that exact thing for months now. Looking at the circa £2,500 SB2 v the current Macbook, although I am hoping that the line gets a refresh in June. Personally I'm completely un-fussed by a touch screen, the thought of having finger prints on my screen sends my OCD into over-drive! I don't care about resale value either, I run mine until they die.

    I would lose iMessage which integrates with my phone, I am regularly contacting clients and colleagues using this and it's so convenient to be able to do it on my MBP. Preview, finder, OSX generally, final cut pro are just a couple of things. I use windows 10 machines a lot at work and imo it's no where near what OSX is. Have you had that moment yet where you just need to get a job done and it decides it's update time? So many patches from MS break other things in our infrastructure on a regular basis. I don't need to worry about which driver I need like I do on windows.

    You say I can save myself some cash but the 15inch SB2 is about the same price as the equivalent MBP (if not more). If it had OSX it would be a no brainer. I'm not a fanboy of apple, in fact, I really don't like the company and the way it's gone in recent years but I still think weighing everything up, the MBP just edges it.

    I haven't personally found the issues with patches breaking things that you mention but I guess it may be more of an issue with proprietary software in the commercial market. As for updating whilst you are doing something I think that is long since gone with 10. I can postpone to my heart's content.

    I think you are invested in the Apple ecosystem and may find it tough to change but it really is worth doing it and suffering a little pain for long term gain. I found it difficult to start with but you soon tune in to windows. I accept that iMessage will be an issue, I still miss my old Blackberry that allowed me to answer text message direct from the desktop but was it worth suffering the Blackberry for? No.

    Take a look at the Dell XPS 15. The new model is out in May and currently out for reviews. It is truly beautiful and available for under 1k.

    Mac OS is awful. Lack of app suppprt. File transfer is a joke. Windows I can transfer multiple files and pause/resume when needed.

    The entire Mac OS is too limited. It’s just basic. UI looks nice but overall usage is very poor.

    When hen people use to tell me Mac OS is faster at installing from clean boot.... all I can say is LOL

    I had issues with high sierra when first launched, files were getting deleted, email mailboxes not syncing. Eventually Apple released update.

    these days Apple software updates are awful they make updates on purpose to slow down certain devices so people think they need to do upgrade. It’s how Apple marketing works especially on iPhones.

    Apple products are for people who want that flashy gadget due to the name Apple. Oh look I got a MacBook

    these latest MacBook are not upgradable same goes for Mac mini. You can pick up older MacBooks and upgrade parts.

    every year Apple release new MacBook hardly any difference and these days prices of MacBook with GPU is awful compared to previous MacBook models with GPU.

    They might as well put price up to £3,000 and still people will buy it ha ha

    I too doubted that quote to be honest but this makes me think the baseline model will be £999

    Dell hasn’t yet confirmed UK pricing for the XPS 15, but prices will start at $999.99 in the US.
