This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I know this isn't going to be for everyone and please don't turn this into a Windows vs Mac debate but it seems like a massive bargain so much so that it may even be a miss price?? Saving £223 off RRP. 50+ in stock at this point. I am in the market to buy one but have access to Educational discount so im getting it for £20 less but if i didn't have that option i would be all over this.

The difference between this and a Windows laptop is that in 3 years time this will sell on to its next owner for about £1,500. My MacBook Pro 13" in 2015 cost £1,050 and will sell tomorrow for around £500. In the meantime I have had the pleasure of not having to use Windows for 4/5 years.

For the same cost you get the same performance from a Windows laptop, plus the ability to eject the screen so it becomes a really powerful tablet and a huge amount more functionality from the 3rd party application support.If the most expensive MacBook was around £1,000 then yeah I would call that value for money, but £2,000? It doesn't do enough to justify that premium and the build quality is only on par with the Surface and XPS range... It doesn't exceed them in any metric.I would buy this but only at half the price.



Good story bro

Over the years i have had many windows based laptops with decent specs but not one of them has lasted 7 years like my last macbook pro did and that only died because it had a drinking problem.. a pint of blackcurrant juice was just too much i can see this new one lasting the same amount of time. Just to add i also currently use and HP i7 windows laptop for work and it is 2 years old and needs replacing already.

Waiting for mine to arrive from Apple - so excited.

Like you I used Student Discount but this is a great deal for those who can’t!
Looks like I will still have to wait on a lottery win to replace my 2015 MacBook. Mental.

Just £20 more on both models is insane.

Luckily im replacing a 2011 Macbook Pro that i drowned and the Insurance is paying 2k towards my new one.
Superb price
Thanks for the listing. Was 50/50 on whether to bite on this or wait for a better price nearer Black Friday but don't see it being reduced much further so went ahead and got it.

Just hoping its not a pricing error now.

Nice laptop, bit big for my liking though! The key features really sell it..

- Working at the speed of thought
- Bending reality takes bandwidth
- There's magic in a perfect workspace

Blimey, missed that they’d updated the MBP to a 16 inch model - I thought you’d made a typo! Heat from me, discount already on a just released MBP is very rare.

It was a very quiet update but has some nice improvements.

Very nice improvements - bigger screen, bigger SSD, better CPU & GPUS, new keyboard!
2.02% TopCashback too - over £40.

Yeah but it's not an Apple product so you don't get that feeling of superiority and smugness when you pull out your laptop from your bag. Can't put a price on that.

A great deal. But if you have access to educational discount you can get this for under 2k!

Jesus. I literally spelled it out for you. The Edu Store - official Apple reseller and part of the Higher National Agreement for students in the UK.

They're an authorised Apple reseller so nothing to worry about. Never had to use the warranty but as I say it's backed up by the Higher National Agreement. Within the 12 months, you also have the same option of taking it to Apple if you ever have trouble.

I've bought multiple Macs from them and the service has always been first class.

Which insurer is doing that? Is that some kind of special TC under your policy? Sounds unbelievable that insurance company wants to replace your 2011 MBP with that new one. Would appreciate any details.

Literally the first sentence asks not to turn this into a Mac vs Windows debate. There are pros and cons to both. For someone in the market for this model this is still a deal for them...

You should take care of your stuff better. Any computer can last 7+ years easily.

Policy expert, its covered under my house insurance but there was a 2K per item limit so that was the max they would pay out but my policy has old for new included so Apple gave me a report saying they can't get the parts for a 2011 MBP any more and the equivalent spec now to replace was £2399. Really recommend policy expert as well as the process to claim was so simple.

Just a light-hearted meme reference
I get the reasons why people will happily buy it. I struggle to stomach Apple's prices though, because I know fundamentally it hasn't got a penny more than £1000 worth of hardware or software in it.
