Get the latest Apple Macbook Pro 13.3" retina (late 2016) model with the new touch bar feature, touch ID and two additional thunderbolt ports, 2.9 GHz processor and upgraded intel Iris graphics to 550 (from 540) for £200 less than the apple RRP.

This makes it a great value compared to the base model at £1449.

You can also get the higher spec top of the range for £200 less too.

Appreciate that others out there will prefer microsoft ( i personally do) and some will have student offers for slightly less but this is available to all.

Same price at currys also but no additional warranty. If you have currys gift vouchers, maybe worth consideration.

Merry xmas!

Discounting already? These clearly aren't selling like hot cakes.

Just a bit of tech advice for anyone wanting a little more value for money. These use 2015 processors not the ones that came out this year. If you're not desperate, hold out until Apple modernise these 'new' designs or potentially consider a Dell XPS 13 (the new one). I own bothers both - sold the MBP but will buy another once they're on par with Dell's XPS range.

The price difference between new MBP with touch bar and without it is £500! That is crazy

dont buy the new macbook pro, terrible reviews and battery life is a myth.

stick to the late 2015 version.

Still seriously overpriced. Speaking from a IT background who uses Mac and PC daily.

Outdated last gen processor and hideously poor battery life. To charge £1549 for a defective outdated machine beggers belief. I bought a Lenovo Yoga 900 with a 1tb solid state upgrade hardrive for under a grand so can't fathom why anyone would pay so much for this machine. I suppose Apples multi billion new headquarters needs more lemmings to pay for it. I however shall pass.

The build quality and OS is amazing, but it still doesn't justify the overpricing

Patched pretty much straight away after CR review.

the patch doesnt fix the problem, all it does is remove the time remaining estimate

Personally holding out for a DELL xps 9360.

But at the end of the day, against the RRP this is a good deal. But low and behold, it's cold because people don't think it's value.

This is why I often feel I can't be bothered listing helpful ones any more.

​Nonsense. Deleting the battery meter does not result in fixing the issue, all it does is hide it. Apple have been hiding issues for years.

How can you call "PRO" this under par lap prop is beyond belief

here we go again with the windows vs mac debates....if you're after a macbook pro with touch bar, this is a great deal that makes it cheaper than Apple store with student discount!

If you're after a MacBook Pro get the heavily discounted previous gen and save a fortune as this new one isn't new enough or high enough performance and as for the battery life....

Should've stuck with my 2012 model!

I may get one for the bathroom.

Though the pro designation isn't necessarily unfair and I love the screens and Apple's aesthetics and superb build quality, it just seems like such a lot of money for just a dual-core U-series CPU, the advantage of the U series being usually long battery life between charges but I too have been reading that Apple are having problems with the battery.

I guess at some point there will be a product recall, for the batches with the problem, but it took over a year for Apple to admit to problems with the 2010 27" iMac's Seagate hard drive, for instance, and... even then, that model had other problems, too, that people had to fight tooth and nail to get Apple to even acknowledge, never mind resolve. I didn't want to risk an overworked technician accidentally scratching the iMac's facia so, as an AV tech, I was able to make repairs and replace parts, in this instance with parts I already had, outside of the proprietary parts that Apple mainly use.

Good on John Lewis for the two year warranty.

MBP has better keyboard, faster memory, better GPU, better touchpad, higher contrast ratio and brightness screen, better speakers, faster TB3 ports, better battery life, macOS is better than Windows on a laptop, Apple store customer support, better build quality.
It may be overpriced but I certainly wouldn't buy a £1000 Windows laptop, especially not Lenovo, to last me 5 years.

Its £300 between the new 13" MBP's, you also get better hardware.
Its £500 between the 2015 15" and new 15".

You get what you pay for, it's clearly not worth it to upgrade a couple of years old laptop but for newcomers to Mac or people wanting to upgrade their pre 2012 MacBook, its a great deal compared to the rubbish "deals" posted on this site.
It's clearly better value than its competitors and your Lenovo which will slow down and you'll be looking for a new laptop to waste £1k on whilst the MBP will be running nice and fast for years after.

The OS alone is worth the extra money than the god awful and massively system break bug ridden Win10. Win7 was a really great OS but 8 and 10 are complete disasters. I was approaching the point of needing a new laptop and if I could have found a laptop that came with Win7 or was guaranteed to have driver support for Win7 for every part I would have jumped on another Windows laptop or MS had gone back to Win7 as the base or 10 rather than using the massive mistake that was Win8 I also would have but after 4 different windows computer s running Win10 developed system breaking windows issues that needed a wipe and reinstall to fix (and that only fixed it for a few months before having to do it again) I took the plunge and went for a Mac as everyone praised the OS not least because it's designed for the hardware rather than having to support every different configuration from the past, present and future. Bit of a learning curve going from windows to MacOS but the OS works well and much more efficiently meaning it carries out most common tasks quicker than faster spaced windows machines. I won't ever make the full mac switch as there are things (such as desktop gaming) where it can't compete with a PC BUT I don't see myself switching back to windows for the machines that don't need windows such as my work based laptop

No issues with Windows 10 here. Perhaps there is either settings/driver issues or user error your end?

I use an iMac at work and Windows PC at home. While I appreciate the quality build of the Macbooks I still feel the price is ridiculous. But if you are a Mac OS user you have little choice and voted hot as this deal is cheaper than Apple.

​I have ran both iOS and Windows machines for years. All this chat knocking about in here about Windows 10 running poorly is nonsense. I build Windows Desktop machines for use in my company and repair them regularly for people who lack the basic skillset to install the OS cleanly etc.. Some basic understanding of Installation helps when using or maintaining a Windows machine. The Apple device is more novice friendly to use. With modern Windows machines running 7th Gen I processors and solid state drives the performance difference vs IOS is negligible. Windows 10 is the best OS they have ever offered and I beta tested it from its infancy. I have repaired defective IOS devices for friends who have complained that the OS doesn't run as well as it used to. I tend to agree. When Jobs ran the ship the issues were minimal. Recent issues with Apple across various devices include failed updates, hideously poor battery life, denial by Apple that issues exist (such as better meter delete on Macbook Pro devices hardly scream perfection to me. I use a Dell XPS 15 for work which runs SSD and 7th Gen i7 processors which is one of the best devices I have ever used, Macbook Pro included. The days of Apple users screaming about windows devices failing or becoming unusable after 5 years is nonsense now that they run hardware comparable or better than the Apple equivalents. My comments stand. The majority of people buy Apple devices to be seen using the "in product". The rest of us use Windows.

You'd have hoped by now that you'd have known it is called OS-X or more recently MacOS then?

People saying it's an outdated processor want to check their facts. These are higher TDP processors, and the Kaby Lake equivalents were not released when the machine was launched.

The i5 in the MBP is faster than the i7 in the Surface Pro 4 for example.

They are expensive though, and the discounts reflect that. But you've always been able to get discounts on Macs, it's iPhones and iPads where you can barely get a penny off

Wow you call people lemmings for using half eaten apple products then justify yourself by using a dell xps. I sold my last dell laptop to buy a MBP and have never regretted it. As a photographer I need reliability and a screen I can trust for image colour accuracy and the Mac system does that. We're not all fan boy so you know some of us buy the tools needed to do a job and windows is not an OS to run my business on ;-)
