Apple MacBook Air (2017) 13-Inch, Intel® Core™ I5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD .
This has £70 off and John Lewis has price matched . But if you buy it now pay 12 months very are crediting your account £100 off the bill bringing in down to £749 . It’s £949 direct at Apple . You won’t find this cheaper .

how does the credit work? Does it come off the total amount or is it like store credit, i.e. you have to buy something at very?

Ah. I just spotted this in the terms so i guess it depends when you order. Edit, i found the terms on an Ipad, so £50 discount there.
So looks like a good deal, are Very a bad company to deal with?

. By entering MCDHY in the promo code box at checkout your item will be put on 12 months Buy Now Pay Later automatically. We'll then credit £50 back back to your account by 14th December 2017 or the dispatch date, whichever is later. We'll email you when we have applied the credit to your account.

whilst this offer is cheaper with the £100 Credit (I've bought 3 watches, each getting £50 credited back), the 3year warranty from JL will sway most folks

But if you are an Apple fan , you will have a iPhone and iPad and everything can be linked also you have iCloud to store all pictures and Videos. It’s all about build quality and how smooth Apple products work that sells it for me . Oh and they hold there value.

I bought the Macbook pro touchbar, but really not getting on with the keyboard. I want to return for this but the screen puts me off

They had this on £150 cash back deal a couple of weeks ago, so not really a very good deal

It was all the 'New' laptops and desktops
i'm dubious they will arrive as the date for delivery is 9th Nov which is odd as they say they are in stock..although I guess they come direct from a supplier...if not Apple themselves.
This seems to be the best deal today.

I ordered today and it’s arriving on Friday.

Apple have never cared enough about the Air line to give it a screen to be proud of.
I'd go with the Macbook 12" if you're after a smaller footprint.

in the terms of sale it says "Non returnable under our Approval Guarantee, once installed or connected."

I tried the butterfly keyboard in john lewis,
its amazing that apple thought that was an improvement

If you must use OSX then this is a deal. For anyone else it isnt.

I don’t know?
I’ve had all my macs from Very with the cash back deals and think that with such a high quality item I wouldn’t worry about anything wrong in the first 3 years

The build quality is so good , Apple products go on and on . My phones always last 2 years then I sell them on for a really good price . And on one occasion when something went wrong on my iPhone 5s a few years ago after 13 months (out of warranty ) they swapped it straight away , in and out the store with in 30 minutes . The customer service is the best around .

Correct price for a fourth generation processor MacBook....Apple has always been overpriced but bearable...now unbearable due to poor quality stuff...their new iMac's HDD is 5400 rpm while in 2010 they were supplying 7200 rpm..fusion drive is 24 gb ssd which is quickly filled by OSx and then its 5400 rpm s**t....plus price gone up due to brexit which hasn't happened yet..or for the next few years...and what busineess deal we will do is not known...their desktop OS is good but due to poor quality computers the argument is being lost quickly...windows 7 and 10 are pretty good for most users..

Crazy world isn't it. Companies encouraging you to pay instalments rather than in full.

Very’s 1 star Trust Pilot rating with 10,000 reviews puts me off buying from them. I’d rather pay a bit extra and order from John Lewis or Amazon - at least with them you know you won’t have to fight with them for months if something goes wrong.

Very are very easy to deal with , if your a good customer/payer . We always get deals with very when they have an item on sale then £50 or £100 credit back . It guarantees that you WILL NOT find the item cheaper ANYWHERE.
As I said find this MacBook cheaper from any UK seller for Brand New ? You can’t which makes this deal hot . If you don’t like Apple scroll in by .
£779 after cash back cheapest in the UK .

Doesnt icloud only store 5GB for photos and videos? I have noticed that to run out too quickly for any use and instead of paying icloud for subscription, it is better to pay initially for more space on your laptop? or even a portable hard drive

If something goes wrong with in the first 12 months you walk straight in to a Apple store and they will sort . You must not of dealt with Apple before . No matter where you buy there products . If something goes wrong in the warranty period you take it back to there store .
Not like Samsung or other brands where your products get sent away for weeks .

Apple does hold its value pretty well, but this model is already old when you buy it, old screen, old processor. TBH since the build quality is so good you would be as well buying a used 2015 model.

But this is the 2017 model and it has a few upgrades from 2015 , yes not many !
But in 3 years when your ready to upgrade you will get £400 to £450 back if it’s kept clean and looked after where an £500 Acer , Dell , HP are worthless after 3 years and in some cases ready for the scrap heap .

The upgrades it has had are worthless. 1.6Ghz to 1.8GHZ, that's totally worth it.

But as I said it holds its value , I just sold my iPhone 6 Plus 2 years 3 months old for £300 , I bought it for £650 brand new . That will go off this MacBook. People purchasing this are not gamers or don’t want it for endless FHD movie watching .
It is what is it , and it’s not fooling no one .
I buy my cars the same way ! No fords or Vauxhall’s!!!!! Always buy a 6 month old VW .

My point is this is already 2 years old. So in 2 years when you want to sell it you are selling a 4 year old laptop.

So, if you switch in 3 years, you dont really lose any money (coz the laptop was £500 cheaper anyway), and if you switch in 5 years (which is the actual life of the £500 laptop) you loose money with a macbook?
I own a macbook myself, but trying to justify its price is a lost cause

I have the 2013 model and it still works great. That said if I was buying a new laptop now it would not be a Macbook Air. They were great when they came out but there is much better for the same price. With that screen and low specs all round - with no technical marvels happening to make it fit into a tiny case, etc. This should be a lot cheaper than it is at this point.

Macbooks can't be beat for their simplicity and the fact that they just work so easily, less risk with security, etc. But This is 5 year old tech now. They should either drop the price and aim it at more budget oriented consumers or just drop it completely and try to get people to accept the 'macbook' as its replacement

Thanks, don't you think £779 is a good price to currently buy, otherwise which other laptop would you recommend at this price point?

the air is still only rocking a 1440x900 screen...

real shame this should of been upgraded by now... i'd avoid and get a pro
