Found 4th Jul 2013
The latest 13" macbook air, with 12 hour Haswell battery life, just a couple of weeks old. RRP of £949 but here on amazon for around 10-12% less. Better deal than using NHS or education discount through apple.

Up to 12 hours of battery life
Newest Intel processors
New 802.11ac Wi-Fi support
Faster all flash storage

You may not want a mac, but I do, for making iBooks (see tapitbooks.com). I contacted apple to ask about an itunes producer discount. Basically it covers imacs, and laptops all except the macbook airs, and is only around 10% cheaper. So I've gone for this instead.

Be careful lot of grey imports around at the moment.

Fulfilled by amazon? Should be legit?

Anyone can get Amazon to hold their stock, I could order 100 dodgy non UK Apple devices, ship them to Amazon and get them to sell it.

This happened with a 13" pro from Groupon, came and had an issue, took it to Apple and they said it's not on the system.... they offered to repair it but wouldn't take it and replace it even thought it was 1 day old.

Don't you just hate when people leave reviews and never mention whether the item was an import or not!

Gonna take a gamble on this I think. Can always send it back for a full refund (minus return postage costs).

I should really hold out until September though for the Pro's with Haswell.

Student discount through Apple education store is 15% on MacBooks. So not really a better deal.

Surely Amazon customer service would sort out any problems you might have "Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) is a service Amazon offers sellers that lets them store their products in Amazon's warehouses, and Amazon directly does the picking, packing, shipping and customer service on these items"

To order online you have to be connected to your university/college Wi-Fi I thought?

Anyone know the procedure over the phone?

You need a confirmed offer from a university to qualify for discount.

You say that but they do check, they requested an email with a photo/scan of ID/letter and stated if they didn't get this they would charge full price.

There is a way to order without being connected to uni/college account, have to Google it to find your code

Thanks got a site (amongst many others).

Haswell

sexy looking device would love one

Cold. Order here on Apple Education site for £816 plus you get a £70 apple app gift card. They don't ask for proof your a student if you order online unlike by phone.

Plus you get a 3 year Apple Care included.

Cheaper, can upgrade the RAM, and comes with a 3 year warranty as standard. The applecare option is to add phone support.

Plus £70 gift card.

I've never been asked for proof and have ordered from that link at least 5 times. Although I was a student the whole time so I wasn't worried.

Seems I was beat by a couple of minutes! Definitely use the Apple education website though over this deal.

they dont check... just say your sister is a student and you want to buy for her!

ive done it twice

much better idea to go direct also means you can change the spec
Edited by: "cigbunt" 5th Jul 2013

Bought one about 3 months ago and never looked back.

Incredible piece of kit, so fast...

Although my brother is a uni student he got the discount at home ! Googles some proxy that masked him as being at his uni. He also got 3 years warranty.

With the same spec and features as this, ultra portable and a 12 hour battery life? Don't be an idiot!

Fight!!!!!

I'm not going to lie, I'm going to get this because it looks so damn slick, and the battery life is something you won't have to worry about for the whole day....maybe even 2 with the way I use my laptops. Who knows if I stick Parallels on it and run it with Windows 8 I may even come to like this thing. If anyone does run Parallels on their mac, please let me know how well it runs everything, especially if you're a developer I would love to know how Visual Studios would run.
