Buy a Mac and see for yourself. The processor on the one posted, if it is a 6th generation i5, scores a respectable 4376 on benchmark. Couple that with the uncomplicated operating system which doesn't feel the need to be updated every time you switch it on and I think you may just like it.


Wrong assumption it's 5th generation, considering 8th is now out its far from current. It has a low resolution 1440 x 900 screen aslo.

Simply not worth the price in my opinion.
Dual core? I want single core & floppy disc

oh thanks for that
Great deal. It is low resolution by today’s standards but a very capable machine. I have several MacBooks 💻 and the air was my first and still runs very well for my daughter. Great find. Tempted to buy my son one.
I'm going to ask this on all the laptop deals for a while (I am not tech savvy at all 😥) but will this be suitable for video editing with premiere pro? And Photoshop?

Why would you need several MacBooks? I have a MBPro and a two Surface Pros and thought I was a hoarder lol

I think the glory days of OS X are over, recent releases of MacOS have been plagued with bugs, and upon fixing these more have been introduced. Additionally, all software engineering at Apple has been combined into one department, with priority placed on iOS. Simplification of desktop software such as Final Cut Pro X is making it pretty clear that they envision the iPad Pro as the future of desktop computing. I'm not going to speculate if that's right or wrong, but it's pretty clear that MacOS development is stagnating.

Agreed I was apple through and through I had MBPro, iPad, iPhone and even Apple TV.
I still have my MBPro but it's barely used since buying the Surface.
Apple had a huge lead in quite a few areas, but most of this lead has now been eroded away by the competition and in many cases overtaken.

I'm a fairly recent Macbook convert as I only bought a Pro a year ago, but I like MacOS far more than Windows. It's just the little things that make it better like updates being handled properly, and the sleep function just working seamlessly. Not to mention the fantastic trackpad and gestures, which seriously make all the difference in everyday use.

I still think a Macbook Air is a good buy even now considering the Windows alternatives, due to its sheer usability and lightweight design, as well as fantastic battery life. I wouldn't worry too much about the low resolution screen on a 13" laptop and remember, the higher the resolution you're running at, the lower your battery life.

With this particular deal, I'd be a little wary about only having 128GB storage though. 256GB really should be the minimum to look at these days. Also, the Air has no HDMI out.
Also available with a 3 year warranty at John Lewis for £799. Prob work out an extra £100 after you add the postage from HDEW for this deal posted.

I am going to agree with you. Have only had apple laptops for the past 8 years. I now believe its lagging behind. There is nothing to keep me on the OS anymore. A surface pro tablet could be my next purchase if nothing changes.

And it really isn't under powered. Most people surf the web and do docs and maybe some coding or photo shopping. This laptop is perfect for that most people want the fastest cpu etc but in reality they don't need or utilise it fully.

Which means...?

At least expand your comment to inform people what that might mean in reality. I suspect, in reality, it won't mean much at all. It's still a snappy laptop. My friend even plays games on his, such as SimCity, and it handles them fine... doesn't even get hot.

This isn't a laptop for gaming though, more just general use and web browsing, therefore an old processor really is an irrelevance.

There are laptops for this price with 8th gen processors and better screen. 8th gen is significantly better.

If you only care about the OS then you'll have to settle for this laptop at this price, if the OS is irrelevant to you like a lot of people then you can buy a better laptop for this price or a similar spec laptop for a lot less.

For general use, web browsing etc the OS is irrelevant.

I went from a Macbook Pro to a surface 4 and never looked back, just upgraded to the new surface and it's excellent.
Things like touch screen, windows hello and fingerprint reader make the mac look dated using passwords. Plus they are much more universally compatible. There is nothing a Mac can do that windows can't, where as there are many things a Windows machine can do that a Mac can't.
You won't be disappointed.

I'm still using my late 2009 MBP. Have replaced the worn out battery and put a cheap SSD in it, but apart from that it's 8 year old hardware running latest OS. None of my windows owning friends can say that. Long term running costs of Apple products are so much lower as IBM said earlier this year.

It's a real shame that most cheap tablets have a better display resolution than this. The form factor is nice but it should be at least 1080p

I have a 2009 laptop still running on Windows 10( more specifically it is my fiance's as it's pink) it was less than £400 and still does all the same stuff.

The only real reason to upgrade just now is if you need to stay high end for gaming etc.

The funny thing is that current macbooks will be done in 4 years since you can't really upgrade them, obviously Apple were fed up of people not spending loads on new laptops more often.
