Can you explain why this is cold then? If there is a good reason that I missed then I'll have no problems with cold votes.

currently cheapest but paid £899 exc quidco for mine from dixons when they had the 10% code going. cheapest at present would be from bestbuy with the 15% code...unfortunately they're out of stock(or bestbuy don't want to sell at a 15% discount + quidco)

Based on a quick scout around i can't find this cheaper anywhere else. I can only assume that cold votes are the fact that it is an apple product of some sort. There always seems to be great debate of the value of a deal on any apple product from the people who want them and the people who say they are overpiced in comparison to some android/windows alternative etc

It's a Mac deal. They will always get the haters out and get voted cold becuase you can get a windows machine of a similar base hardware spec for half the price. Obviously, once you start adding all the other refinements of a MBP, then that price narrows, but even so: "I can buy an Acer for £500 of this spec" is the defining arguement on here.

Don't let it worry you, but Apple deals always get that. Oh, at some point the thread will descent into pointless dick waving about which format is best.

Voted hot.

Excellently put, perticularly the dick waving comment! LOL

You should never hate on the poor suffering Windows users who cannot afford a real computer. If voting a few Apple Mac deals cold on here makes them feel better about the technology they are stuck using then so be it.

Very True - I own a windows laptop and an iMac and they are both excellent

i ahve a windows based laptop.......i own a ipod and thats it. I love the apple products like these and the ipads but i personally dont want one. But thant doesnt mean that theyre not good or good value for money.
I think some people like to think theyre differant and dont want to follow the trend of the apple products!

Those of us who have bought Macs for nearly twenty years know that any saving on RRP is a hot deal!
Hope that big savings on RRP like this keep coming up, it's the best saving available from me so hot - regardless of any views on the product itself! (Apple please dump shared RAM integrated GPUs once and for all, I would love a 13" MBP but will have to consider a 15" instead - this is supposed to be a 'Pro' model!)

Would rather buy 2 windows laptops. Paying 100% apple tax for a few letters/logos oO

I have never seen what all the fuse is about. Looks good if your after one but I've never bothered to look into them.

Only thing i've used was a imac for about 15 mins.Please explain why they are worth £4-£500 more than the same or similar spec windows laptop .......

I wouldn't know too much about the actual techie aspects but all i can really say is that the all round quality functionality a durability is worth the money. I used to be anti-apple because of the price but then i took the leap and bought a mac and its wonderful and well worth the money in my opinion but i would in no way recommend that everyone should go out and buy one, it was just the right choice for me
Edited by: "madmikeyb83" 24th Mar 2011

It's just weird no one ever seems to say why they are better. Whats different about them .....

I won't get sucked into buying one as i don't need a portable pc.You get better value for money with a good old desktop IMO but as i only really surf the web these days a high spec isn't needed.

Give it another 6-18 months and i will upgrade, but untill my custom built pc dies i see no point wasting £200+ as my pc is still better than a lot of netbooks and cheaper laptops (sub £300)

So why would i waste my money considering my tv is my monitor. My 3-4 year old pc is still "ok" for what i use it for and portability isn't important for ME at this time in my life.

I simply don't know or understand why they cost so much when no one seems to say why they are worth the money ..................

Just my view

Bit harsh suggesting an apple laptop is only worth £4 more than an equivalent Windows laptop.

A good question though and from the replies posted in previous threads; it looks better and is way cooler + has sometimes has a good quality casing though of course some windows laptops also have good quality casings.....

Each to their own ; good deal on price but its still poor value imho in terms of the generic PC components inside....

£4-£500 = £400-£500 i should of just put the 00 on there X)
I am still using my AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual core 6000+ (3.0ghz) + 3gb ram and 750gb HDD spread between 3 HDD.

Its outdated now but its 3+ years old. I brought it when Dual wasn't out long, it cost me £150ish for the cpu and was "top of the range at the time except maybe the black edition ?". So if i am wrong saying it isn't worth me spending sub £300 on a laptop or notebook please link me to one thats better than my current pc spec .....

I don't know much about intel i3 ect btw

I wouldn't spend £900 on one as it isn't worth it for ME personally.

I think the problem boils down to the fact that you can't put a figure (for comparison) on quality. Sure you can compare specs such as HDD space, graphics, processor etc - and those have actual monetary value attached, but it's the things like the real functionality, build quality, longevity, weight, and depreciation that you can't define with a £ sign.

Personally, I find that they are better machines because they are more user friendly in the sense that your mum could play around for years on a mac, and never face a blue screen, memory dump or critical alert. Users can have less IT knowledge, yet actually do more. We find that people are quite happy to edit their holiday snaps and videos on iPhoto/iMovie, but wouldn't dream of trying the same on a PC.

Apple's support is excellent - anyone who has been along to the Genius bar I'm sure would agree, whereas with a sickly PC you tend to be passed around like a bad germ 'You'll need to contact Microsoft. Sorry.. it's the hardware's fault. You'll need to find your original disks' blah blah blah.
This makes for a much more convenient system in the Macs - not just because they fall sick less often, but because their sickness tends to be easier to cure.

Convenience IS something people will pay for, and that - my friend, is why the Macs are better.

Btw gcmarcal.. I don't have a d***k to measure - does that mean I'm not allowed to say my machine is better?.. Oh.. and it's silver too.

Mmmmmm never had a problem with windows myself and wouldn't even bother ringing microsoft.Thats why any important data i stored on a hdd for back up.A Format is easy enough.The internet holds a lot of info nowadays.

Just imagine the desktop you could build with £900 thesedays.You make a fair point and its down to the end user and what they use it for.Having said that you could go and buy a brandnew one with the difference between a similar spec windows laptop.

Swings in round abouts, everyones their own.Still don't think most people will pay £400 + more for this as it can't be that expensive for convience.You could buy a decent 40" tv for that

I'm not going to fuel a debate so i will just leave it as i only use my computer for browsing the net so it would be a waste for me. Still seems a good deal if your after this.

I would hazard a guess that you, Gunner4Life, are a more experienced user than most of the people I support. I would therefore totally understand why you a) wouldn't call Microsoft! and b) even think about the type of PC you could buy for that money - and I am also sure that you would pick a decent spec and know how to make the most of it. Not everyone wants or knows how to do that, and you'd be surprised just how many people out there have computers they can't even use!
I do IT support both full-time and part-time (evenings/weekends) and I would say that 90% of people I see have never heard of a Windows update, never mind done one!
Apple offer it's users a very nice, neat, easy-to-use rounded package, that doesn't regularly put user data in danger of being lost. Add that to the design (I know, i know - not to everyone's taste) but these do all add to the cost. Sure, they might have a higher mark-up than a PC, but as I already said, much of that cannot be put into monetary terms - otherwise a Jaguar would cost the same as a VW, no? (it's just a hunk of metal on wheels, after all!)

X) Sure is a bit of metal on wheels.I've not long turned 19 so i grew up with pc's as we know them today.I was simply just asking why and you have told me why. Which is fair enough but IMO you maybe paying for that but its over priced. Like all apple products if they cut their greed by 20-30% i am sure their sales would go up.LIke paying £500 for a iphone 4 is silly money considering what else is out there for half the price. Apple is accessories its a fasion statement. Which is why they stay higher in price than what many think they should be. A ipod is £160 ish for a 8gb touch so thats £350 just to turn it into a phone and give it 8gb extra space ..... That just doesn't seem right to me.I Don't like itunes and i don't like apples attitude after your 1 year warranty is out. I am sure when i have the need and mainly the "free" cash to spend i will get a macbook. For now its not worth the premium involved and i am not someone who plans to buy stuff though credit cards or loans and build a stupid dept like some people do. It just bites you in the ass ! You've got to pay it sometime or hit bankrupt ! Which your f**ked then A little off topic i know but your be surprised how many people are in huge debts and apple just don't help them. (My mums useless with money which is why i plan not to be the same)

I still voted it hot btw

P.S Its good you have a job helping others Especially as computers and the internet plays a big part in most peoples lifes. It wouldn't surprise me if in 5-10 years there isn't many high street shops left open oO
