Fully expecting the haters to make all hell freeze over with this one, but this model retailed at £2699 from Apple last year, and even now sells at £2499 from John Lewis and £2200 from Apple refurbished. This is by far the best price I have ever seen for this. I just sold my space grey model and bought this and actually came out on top!

LaptopsDirect are also offering 12 months buy now pay later, which is nice for those who need it.

Full spec:

15" Retina MacBook Pro with Touch Bar
Core i7 2.7GHz
16GB LPDDR3 RAM
512GB SSD
Radeon Pro 455 2 GB
Intel HD Graphics 530 1536 MB
Silver Finish

I've never used LaptopsDirect before but took a punt on this when I saw it yesterday afternoon. I ordered it at 19:30 and it arrived today at 14:00 via DPD so I was very impressed with delivery service too.

How is this a bargain?


And, here we go. It's a £2699 laptop, available for £1799.97. It might not be for you, but it absolutely is a bargain for what it is and for those interested.

Don't like it - keep scrolling.

£900 off RRP, but keep it up with the downvotes guys. I don't know why I bother...

It's not hotukbargins, this price is a decent saving against other retailers as clearly pointed out in deal post. But sure it's not a good deal if you don't want this product.

The spec only worth 1k, but hey is apple, so hot for me


Please, show me a laptop with 3200MB/s SSD and DCI-P3 calibrated display for £1000.

Great deal ..just wish ...anyway happy for those who buy and use it..great..

Heat added cause is a good discount

But At least £600 extra just for the apple badge is a bit of a joke.

Couldn't find weight in Tech Specs. Anyone know?

It's a bit more than a badge, but that argument is for another place.

(I'm typing on it right now)

Looks like the 2016 model... it’s 1899 at ebuyer... don’t know if this is too hot...

I think it's a cracking deal regardless. My last MacBook went on for nine years. Had I been looking now I would definitely have gone for this. Good find and heat added. I don't get the apple ambivalence either. I've never had a problem with their stuff and I think their build quality is great. Presumably people don't think Miele products are worth paying the extra for either. Sometimes I travel business class on planes. I don't get there any quicker but I enjoy the experience.

Yes, it's last October's model as stated in original post. No, eBuyer don't have this at £1899. That's the 2.6 (this is 2.7GHz), 256GB SSD (this is 512 SSD), and also the slower Radeon Pro 450 (this is 455).

You're up front of the plane.
You leave the ground before the back of the plane.
You touch down before the back of the plane.
You get off first.
How can you claim, you don't get there quicker?

It’s 512 but yes, 2.6 and 450:

No you don't. Have you heard of flaring? The back of the plane touches down before the front. You do get off first but in many places that doesn't make the immigration queue any quicker.

Voted hot. Good saving on overpriced rrp. Tempted at this price.

Indeed. I'm always advising folk of the SSD speed in these - there are sometimes benefits to Apple's design choices and the SSD is unmatched (excluding the 2017 rMBP of course).

This is a great deal ....

Miele use really high quality components - i remember taking out my old washing machine for a Miele one (ten years ago), it was about 3 times the weight and even the transit brackets were great quality - it was a great deal mind you and 10 year parts and labour warranty

Apparently you are only allowed to compare Apple things to other Apple things - they exist in thier own bubble.

No, but it would make sense to consider the saving against the RRP and available price elsewhere. I would hope that's not a difficult concept to comprehend.

It’s a 1.8kg thin laptop with 10 hour battery not a 5kg gaming monster but

If you want gaming performance, this MacBook has four 40GB/s Thunderbolt 3 ports that allow external GPUs so you can plug four Nvidias 1080s if you’d like.

That will be the German's utilising their 'perceived quality' trick - they do exactly the same with cars.

It probably just has a heavier lump of concrete in it than your previous machine.

They focus on the bits you can see and feel, and cut corners 'behind the scenes'.

Defeats the purpose of having a 1.8KG laptop mind you

There is, but neither you or the user I quoted use them for any of the other reasons - you have done nothing but talk about gaming capabilities in all of the recent deals.

how about cpu? 7th or 6th generation

Very possibly but I fell for it - I could have used a nice person to better inform me!

Wish I could say the same for my Bosch fridge and freezer, they are both terrible!

Does it? Light and fast machine to carry around and when you get home, plug GPU and 4K monitor and you have a gaming computer.

It's actually a £2699 machine, and not a children's toy.
