Decent price. Is this Haswell?

Pretty nice price, the 13" version is cheap too.

"cheap" lol.

it's hot only if you need an 11 inch laptop. I don't know why anyone would but a 11 inch when you can get 13-15 inch or a tablet

It's surprising how easy this little thing is to use, the keyboard is pretty big as well so you can get used to it.

How can you comment on the price if you don't even know the specifics of the item? Typical Apple fan? Let the flame wars begin!

Could it be perhaps they think it's a decent price if it is a Haswell model and were querying if it was or not? I don't see how that makes someone a fan.

It is indeed a Haswell CPU (i5-4250U).

I have a Nokia (just switched from BlackBerry Z10), a Samsung laptop and a Surface Pro. Fanboy wars are pointless, just let people choose what they like.

I'm still debating getting a Macbook. I have a 15" HP Envy Haswell i7 very much more powerful than this and it would cost an absolute fortune to get an equivalent Mac. I just really want to use Logic Pro X. Guess I stick with the HP and run Cockos Reaper. Thinking out aloud

Already covered here, no?

Would most people not rather buy fulfilled by Amazon at these sort of prices? In fact there's another option for the 1.4GHz upgrade for about £5 more than this deal

Go Mac and you'll never go back.

Had a Mac between 2004-2012. Did not like the direction of the OS - pseudo-iPhone/iPad-esque UI. Didn't go back to Windows (for very long), but now have a lubuntu X220. Point is, personal preference is key.

Yes. Has to be Windows or OSX for me, as Linux is hopeless for audio production. I do use Linux for other stuff. To be honest I can do everything on the laptop I have now. I just like messing with new stuff.

This is the 11.6 inch version not the 13 inch



That's what I meant - we all know there's a 'sale' on both 11 and 13 inch ones from various companies.

good price that.personally i can't see what sector it fits into outside of business.

Students. Don't need the power of a Pro (generally), and something smaller is ideal in lectures. The lower price is a boon too.

My university is Mac-based... I do all of my work at home to avoid using the things! It feels to me that everything on their OS is awkward and different for the sake of being different. But that's just me.

Always makes me laugh when they don't know how to use them, and ask a Microsoft Windows user to help.

I still have access to Windows, however nothing comes close to the user experience of a mac as well as the build quality of the machines, in my opinion. It is unparalleled in the windows world.

only one left now

I've had one of these for two years now. Can't fault it. Never had a virus or even locked up at all. It's slightly bigger than an iPad but more versatile. It is a beauty in the looks department as well. If it's your thing this is a good price. I paid £700 and that was cheap then. Plus these will always be worth something in a few years.

What are they like inside these days?
I think iFixit described them as unopenable, unfixable, untenable.

Its all that lazy stupid(or clever if you see it in future profits) glue that makes for a diabolical build.
I wonder if the fashion is to build them like tablets now, thus built as a consumable.

Exactly the attitude and superficial motivation of the apple consumer, when the reality is no one else could give a **** what you've got

One can look at this as a good tablet with keyboard, eg its better value than the ipads, and can do adult multitasking. (Yes, you can get an android for 50 pounds and a 10 pound BT keyboard - but want multiwindowing, full itunes, macos app store, software development, etc).

Really tempted but the storage isn't enough for me. If this was the 256GB for £569, it would have been great.

Why on earth would someone want an 11 inch laptop. I find the reality warping field of apple to be fascinating sometimes. I mean sure you can reason this is a tablet with a keyboard which it isn't as it's not touch screen, so what else? Oh we'll this is like a pocket calculator but more flexible and looks like a clamshell and like you can run windows in it too. I just think these 11 inch machines and net books are just, I don't know, embarrassing.

Why do people want 6" smartphones, why do people want cars with small engines? Why do people watch Towie? Why do people watch Horizon? Why did people listen to Jive Bunny? Why do people listen to Adele? Why do people choose study social economics at University? Why do people choose to study Archaeology? Why does anyone bother to choose to do anything, as some judgemental git will admonish them? This device doesn't suit your needs, it suits the needs of many other people. Judging people by your own needs/standards is being judgemental.

Choice people, we all have it, we all have the choice to judge or not to judge. You choose.

I want one of these so I can sit in Starbucks and sip on a coffee. Any tips on what work I can pretend to do?

Overpriced laptop for Apple nerds - elsewhere no more than £250. Cold all day long
