its now even cheaper with student discount only £1504. Im getting my wallet out while typing this lol

Very good deal!

Starting our a deal with the words "I know this is going to get cold" is a sure way to get cold votes.

Macs are always gonna be tough to get past the cold voters because it's just so over priced for what it is, deal hunters don't give a **** about paying for a brand when you can get the same specs for over half the price with a different os.

Im using windows since I was a little child. I made my move to Apple 3 years ago and never look back. I love the quality. Only my alienware alpha is using windows and i just use it for gaming.

Being Apple I thought 5k might have been the price.

I thought about it. Cold.

45 and programming since the age of 12 and inherited a Mac Pro last December .. After 20 yrs using PC most of which, self builds, I converted *overnight*..

OS X is just light years ahead.. The few times I've had to dip back into Win8.1 and XP I'm immediately reminded of how clunky MS OS are.. Installing Win8 again on the Mac was hilarious.. After booting into windows there were 200 odd security updates to install and it crashed at 97% after 4hrs downloading and installing. OS X ? Yosemite has had three point updates LOL

OS X is built upon UNIX, so has that -security and industrial strength code at its core..

Anyway, as for this deal, love or loath Macs, the 5K screen is a game changer.. Fonts and photographs have a print like quality .. And the scaling in OS X is world apart so it's not just a hires screen.. The whole OS interface is just beautiful down to the dialog boxes and icons and everything .. Can't afford one but heat for a revolutionary piece of technology

Don't you mean style AND substance ?? What is it that's so terribly important that you can't do with a Mac ??

Voted hot because this actually is a fantastic deal. Rrp £2000 you're saving a minimum of £400. I don't see how this is cold? It isn't a reviews website so whether you think it's overpriced is irrelevant, this website is for finding good deals on products and this is a good deal.

Some people were writing code as a fetus. You don't need to state your intelligence level to give your opinion.

This is badly written; is there a voucher code (if so, where?!?) as well as student discount?

I thought imac was the cream you ladies used on your lady gardens

Not sure where the deal is as this is the new 5K Mac added last week to the line up and that's its retail price, I saw this in john Lewis with a demo of Lego move and the hobbit and the screen is jaw dropping, only comes with a standard harddrive though if upgrade to fusion.or ssd

Don't talk nonsense when someone gave an opinion on a subject & mentioned their experience in the field. You reek of ignorance.

This isn't a deal. This is the standard rrp of a new 5k model. Will be cheaper from other retailers in the future maybe

Agreed not a special deal. But nice to know about. Tempted!

Surely if you consider something overpriced then it's not a good deal for you. Just because it's advertised as cheaper than rrp doesn't mean it's a good deal.

Got your logic the wrong way round mate, your arguing for...what can you do with this that you can't do for half the price outside of the Apple arena...?

This is just the retail price from apples own store. Where's the deal?!

You're*

My daughter starts school in September and I'll be buying one then. Great price for an amazing machine and just what I'll need to edit my Phantom 3 Pro's 4K footage

What is it I can't do with Windows/Linux machine at fraction of the price that I can do with this?

Genuine question - hoping for a reasoned response and not just 'this is better' or 'that is rubbish'.

Game.

OI arotabi!!! You nicked my question!!!

Seriously though, I do get it...they are awesome machines.

.....but I drive a Hyundai Ix35 1.7 CRD....its OK....my colleague drives a BMW X5 3.0 xDrive30d...it cost him 20 grand more....what did he get in real useable terms for his 20 grand?...they're roughly the same size....you cant drive faster than 40 where we live....a better badge...that's all.

Same with Apple...you don't really get anything better, just the illusion of it.......and a cold ar*e from sleeping on pavements outside Apple stores....:D

I agree. I'm not an Apple Fan, but great marketeers, build quality good on their products, innovators and helped advance computer industry. sure they charge a premium and lock down products and accessories a fortune. but a deals a deal , so don't vote cold because it's apple or Android . how can someone vote hot when a deal has 40p off and cold when it has £400 . that's illogical . if you don't like Apple or Android fan don't just vote cold for sake of it it , vote based on savings

I used windoze since win 3.1 u til win 8 came out and I got sick of my machine being tied up with updates. Auto updating with a 1 gig download on boot is not good is design. Since swapping to mac I have rebooted it three times, I have AppleCare so any help I need is a phone call away and they answer quickly. Mac OS is just so much better to work with than windoze and I work on a windoze machine all day at work for design and photography. Did I mention the screens? Oh the screens just pure heaven.

Finally it just comes down to reliability which makes my computing far more productive, I don't have to find fixes, get that stupid dinging noise when an error occurs, stuff just works and if that costs more then take my money. If time and productivity is not a factor for you then get a windoze machine :-)

guessed right ..cold

Tad pedantic. 20 years ago when Windows 95 was realeased he was 7, that's definitely a "little child" in PC terms since he wouldn't physically be able to use one much earlier!

I'm in the Hot Voters camp, this IS a good deal for anybody considering one of these. I'm an RMBP user so can't really justify it alongside....but it's a good price.
