Before the Apple haters start voting cold, notice the saving, which would classify it as a good deal.

Great deal for one of these , thankyou x

What type of i5 is it and what ram and gtaphics does it have?
Would this outperform/be better than a windows equivalent?
Not

High price tag on a simple machine

To simplify things, if the price is cheap for that product vote hot, otherwise vote cold. What you think of the product is not the reason to vote. Hence the name of the site Hot UK "DEALS"

Nah, I'm still voting cold. Atrocious value.

Just because something is cheaper than it was doesn't make it a good deal. What you get for your money helps to qualify something as a good deal and in this case what you get is a whole heap of Paul Daniels.

Value is defined by the individual, if it does what the person wants then who cares about specs etc. It is a good deal for some because they would have paid the higher price.

If Apple keep to the yearly schedule of updates then this could be an old model within a month.

Depends on Intel as to when I guess.

New Intel CPUs are being officially announced on June 4th or so but not sure about availability.
For desktops a new release is not so much of a deal these days usually but with laptops it generally still is.
But this is cheap for an Air so go figure!

High price apple nonsense. Cold

Now now no squabbling please.

Anyone who buys this is a joke. I don't care if it's cheaper than usual. It's stupid to buy this

Good deal when u quantify it for what it is. Have some heat :-)

This actually beats Higher Ed pricing for once. No three year warranty obviously but cheap, wouldn't touch one before the refresh now though.

Once you go Mac you'll never go back !!!

Hot on the basis of this been the cheapest current price for this product. CamelCamel
Wouldn't recommend over something with better specs and more capability that you would find in the Dell Outlet store albeit heavier and thicker!

I hate Apple, but I will never ever buy myself a non-Apple computer because while the specs may be comparable with cheaper computers the hardware, the construction and the warranty/support are second to none. What happens when your Dell laptop goes wrong 6 months in? With an Apple one you take it to a store and if they can't fix it in good time they even let you have a machine in the mean time. Hot!

People just assume that every product of Apple is overpriced but for example this Macbook Air actually has a pretty good value. Ultrabooks which are usually bigger and heavier are as expensive as this MBA with similar specs plus if you're looking for something similar with a non-plastic chassis and a good quality screen, the prices go up to £1000-1500...

Haswell coming out soon with 3x better graphics.

You can't hate them that much.

As you say, there are cheaper options, in some cases alot cheaper. Is the extra worth paying a premium for the quality? For you that's a yes. For me it's a no.

Every product comes with a warranty. I'll take my chances that if it doesn't break down in the first month that whatever I have will last. Granted the loan of a computer while they fix it is a nice benefit. But not at the cost of a couple of hundred quid. I can live without a computer for a day or two. My arms won't drop off.

My experience of Apple support wasn't so good. It took them 7 weeks to get a replacement iPod Nano to me.

I use a 2011 one of these every day. To call it expensive is fair enough but I carry a bag with about 10kg of equipment about so I value the fact that this weighs around the same as a handful if feathers but is robust. To **** it off because you think it is expensive next to something which is much heavier, less well built and therefore cheaper is just inverted snobbery. If you can't afford it then move on. No one needs to know how much you need self validation for your own sub-optimal choice...

Only 3x for desktop processors - for Ultrabook processors (15W TDP) it is more like 50%:

A good find, and very well made so it will probably not go wrong.

But what is the address of gooddeal4u

some of these companies are based in HK

Good deal but think I will hold out for the updated model for all the extra it will cost.

Have yet to feel another computing unit feel the same quality and build as the apple range.

Hot for now, but I'm waiting for after WWDC (Apple are rumoured to be announcing new Air models)

I find it hard to keep going back to Apple, but there laptops are like tanks, the trackpad makes browsing a lot smoother, swiping through pages and pinch to zoom becomes 2nd nature, going back to other laptops now feels like trying to use a feature phone or buttons on a touch screen, while the power on similar laptops can be higher for a competitive price their difference is usually negligible and your giving up the decent hardware and OS to go with, there are so handy OS features I miss on Windows like "clicking help > type > directs you to correct menu and has an arrow pointing" such as when using MS word and can't remember where line spacing/fonts/word count etc , I also like the unified task bar so every menu is the same place and add on apps like Alfred/spotlight have made searching for anything as quick as possible. I love windows too and dual boot/boot camp into W8 for steam games all the time but as soon as I start using a browser I have to boot back into OSX. Love windows phone however but wanting to upgrade eventually to the Galaxy Notes.

currently using a 2011 MBP.

Ain't that the truth! For 15+ years I'd been a windows user, and hated the thought of using a mac.
Then, in a panic during the Comet clearout sales, I picked up a macbook pro.

It is quite simply the BEST build-quality, and all drivers are perfectly in-tune with the operating system and hardware. I've managed to get more work done in less time due to everything 'just working as it should'.

I now only use my windows machines for gaming and one bit of software that doesnt run on OSX.

Not voted either way though as I don't feel the Air is good value for money - a macbook pro for a couple of hundred quid more is a better option (the form factor of a macbook pro is ultra-book like anyway - and you get more ports!).

Petrol now 2p a leter cheaper!

I have had windows since a child, reluctant, afraid of a new OS but still punted out and bought my first mac 2yrs ago, I don't think I will by a windows machine ever again, yes it's pricey, yes it's comparable in spec to a windows machine, but you don't get blue screens of death, black screens of death, windows has stopped responding, virus galore etc. the machine still runs like the day I took it out the box after 2yrs, no sluggishness and I could sell it now and get chunk of the money back.

With Dell I phone them and they send an engineer the next business day to my location (work or home etc) to fix it. Nearest Apple store is a 90 mile roundtrip which means a 3 hour journey plus the hassle of parking and you have to make an appointment or wait.
Apple have some excellent features but their lack of onsite next business day warranty makes them a non player for most in the business world. Taking 4 hours off work to fix a PC would cost me £200 in lost earnings plus all the hassle.
They make great consumer devices but that’s it.

I really don't want to rate apple. I find the way they are so annoying and I want to agree with the slaters, but seriously, I cannot. In the past 8 years we have owned a Apple G5, this (whilst dated) is still going strong and suitable for family, daily use. My OH has a Mac Pro that is 3 years old and absolutely perfect still, despite daily use and being lugged around. In that time we have owned and gone through...2 Dell Lap tops, a dell desk top, 2 Toshiba laptops. In all cases, within a few months of warranty they developed faults. In some we tried repairs, this lasted a few months. But only the Apples are still going strong and reliable. All the others no longer work. They simply do not last.

Voted hot because it is a good price for this individual piece of equipment. Generally not a fan of apple mind, down to the way the company operates, and I find their products a bit limiting, as well as pricey.

Hot. Life is too short not to use Apple computers. I would rather stick red hot needles in my eyeballs than use a PC.

Be careful with this, it's from a marketplace seller so not VAT registered and could end up being grey import stock...

I disagree.I've got the latest macbook air 13 inch and after using windows for many years I have to admit the mac does have some awesome features BUT the price does not justify them .You can get a top end windows laptop for half the price of an air which will do pretty much the same thing.You're just paying the extra for the apple sign.

In ultra-light laptops Apple has a good value. Overpriced in the expansions (more ram, more hd, etc), but still better value than the competency. As someone else has already stated ultrabooks of another manufacturers are +1000GBP.

But if you want the last technology better to wait since this Macbook Air is in the end of their cycle, soon a new one will be on the market.

I am the happy owner of a Macbook Air mid2011 and it works like the first day after intensive use. It has survive to wild camping, backpack carrying, flights, used in beaches during months, cold winters as well, carrying with it everywhere day after day... Almost 2 years of service and still running and with a great battery life.

Other laptops and netbooks I had on the past had a much more easy life and died or need battery replacements every year.
