What's with the shortening of the word 'guarantee' in this thread?

Pardon, actually £599 …Pardon, actually £599 https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/macbook-air-for-599-if-you-trade-in-an-old-laptop-currys-3017741



So you’re saying the 2017 MacBook Air was £699/£599 in 2016, a year before it was released? Impressive!

(also the £599 is assuming a trade in but that’s another issue)

and only 8gb ram at this price.

you pay for the apple brand and os as always.
note that the screen resolution is less than standard HD... this would be derided if it weren't an Apple notebook
Heat as it’s the one of the best prices currently however call me a skeptical but I feel Apple has deliberately (‘tactically’) kept the old MacBook Air model to sway people to spend the extra for the MacBook Air 2018.

Not really - Standard HD is generally accepted as 720p or above
Full HD is 1080p and above

This is 900p so somewhere in between and perfectly acceptable on a 13.3” screen.

There’s plenty of 15.6” laptops running 1366x768 so a smaller screen at 1440x900 is far sharper. Much higher ppi

you're right, I did mean full hd thank you
but at this price point you want more than acceptable

I have a 1080p 13.3" laptop and imo it's the best compromise for pixel density, readability for non scaling applications and battery life

it seems either apple or their consumers don't disagree 900p is unacceptable; their newest range of MacBook (airs) have significantly higher resolutions than even FHD

Yeah I know what you’re saying. However in the world of Apple, £789 is practically bargain basementclearance sale pricing
