Latest model. Model number MJVE2B/A.
Apple store price is £849. Apple education store is £729.60 (but with 3 years international warranty).
So at £689.99 with 1 year warranty this is a reasonable price. Personally, for £40, I'd take the 3 years warranty and buy from Apple.

5XXX? Very informative, could be a 5005 or 5950, huge scope of difference there.

Apple used to allow access via edu links, regardless of whether you were a student or not. All the ones I have though have stopped working. How did you access it?

Hmmm.. You're right. Just checked it there too. All the links I had no longer work. I have to go via unidays now.

Great deal.

You go onto live chat and state that you want to make an order via educational

Laughable screen resolution.

Laughable screen resolution.


Especially from the company that invented the marketing term Retina.

Plus its a TN panel. It is a lottery with these, they mix manufacturers between Samsung and LG I think the Samsung ones are/were better.

Does anyone know how to get the edu price now then?

Thats a decent offer. You can easily pay a lot more without ny kind of warranty.

Please remember that if the seller does not claim that it is a UK model, it probably has a non-UK keyboard.
This may not bother some people but it might bother others so buyer beware if this is an issue for you.

Almost £700 for 4gb of ram, 128gb storage and a 900p screen? Why do people buy macs exactly? Id like to hear a reason other than design

I used to hate Apple products. The I got an iphone by accident (how and why can't be discussed here). I can tell you that with a android phones, the speed would drastically get reduced after a while, whereas with iphone the performance is still the same like the time when I purchased.
A friend of mine purchased an iMac a while ago and she swears the windows lapto

She swears that windows laptop does not last as long as apple's. She bought an iMac years ago and she says the reformable is same like when it was new.
My next laptop is definitely going to be Apple

iMessage, Seriously‽

I've previously used only Macs, iPhones, iPods, IPads etc for 20+ years but have recently bought a gaming PC, a Lenovo windows 10 tablet and a Lumia 640 phone rather than pay the Apple tax for their overpriced alternatives.

Having said this I would probably still buy a Macbook/Mac Pro for work (I am a designer) - but not for using iMessage!

Wait a minute, I'll just ask my son. He's in Year 1, they do sums like this all the time.. He says they probably had a delivery of five and sold two.

Err! I think you'll find that's three syllables.

You can access the edu site via the NUS website - as we all know, anyone can pick up an NUS card for around £15-20

just missed buying from 'zink' seller @ GBP659

I got it from ZinkFly for £659.99. Thanks OP.

Good price. My ,ac is similar spec and never let me down. Personally, I like the fact that it has never crashed, gets about 9 hours battery and is so easy to use.

I'm not to fussed over the numbers in the specs, as long as it does what I need and is reliable.

I love my Mac and would certainly buy another.

Think this one is the Processor - Intel Core i5 5250U

The touchpad, and how it is integrated with the OS, is probably 80% of the reason why I am stuck with the mac - not complaining though.

They are expensive.
