Is this the MF839B/A? If so, it's £898.80 at the Apple store online with NUS discount (£999 without), so at £849 this is a steal.

Decent price, but suspect Currys are stock clearing ahead of the new versions, said to be due next month. If it wasn't for that, I'd probably get a top end 15" version for the 10% off.

This seems a great deal

Where is all the money going here because it's not on the hardware

The early 2015 model comes with a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, a 5th generation ultrabook U-series CPU aimed more at energy saving than at a power user, specifically it's a Broadwell 5257U. The graphics are integrated, being Intel Iris Pro 6100, comparatively decent at the time of release compared to other integrated Intel solutions. The Retina screen has an appealing 2560 by 1600 native resolution at 227 ppi.

Getting back on topic on whether it is a good deal, though you could spend the same money on a PC laptop and get a better spec with 4 physical cores, you then lose Apple's appealing metal-bodied aesthetics and build quality and the Apple eco system/OS and App store. Though I find it hard to vote on this one as a deal because though I would want a non-ultrabook CPU with four physical cores for heavier workloads, the MacBook is a relatively unique product and this is the best price that I can find for that particular model, at the moment, if you can't wait for the I imagine more expensive new model to come out. For instance, Debenhams and laptopsdirect currently have the early 2015 model for about £905. Have some heat.

@horrorwood - you can reply. Loads of people message directly to ask questions, send deals, give feedback and ask for specific deals. From those replies I think the chit-chat element is generally well-received, usually.. but we're always happy to pass on your comments

I made the same mistake when I posted this yesterday. Unfortunately only one of those offers (I.e £50 or 10% not both) can be used if you read the terms & conditions of each. So not quite the deal it first seems.

Back to the computer talk, by far and away the best deal I got a heads up from on HUKD was my Asus Zenbook UX305FA for £499 last year, which is said to be better than the CA followed it. I'll take my silent core M over super fast performance that I don't need

Some of the core m's are really not bad, they have a high turbo speed. Apparently Intel are going to rebrand them as i5 / i7 etc

People who like OS X but not the hassle of hackintosh? Although saying that, my laptop is an HP 4530s that I got after it was posted here on HUKD in early 2012 for, as I remember, around £200. She's been hackintoshed since day one and currently runs the latest OS X version, perfectly. She's has upgraded RAM and an SSD. Since I have an iPhone and so does the rest of the family, plus iPads, an iMac, a MacBook and Apple TV. So FaceTime and iMessage is perfectly integrated and works well for us as a family. Plus iCloud photo sharing.. Family Apple Music sub... Yes we're totally engulfed in the Apple ecosystem. I wish their hardware wasn't so expensive but we never pay full price. Usually we get refurb iPhones from O2 Refresh, the MacBook and iMac were both bought with student discount and 3 years AppleCare...plus two of the devices are actually hackintoshes, not real Apple products. So I think we're quite thrifty with how much of our money which actually give to Apple, despite us being "all Apple".

I know people talk about Apple sheep and baaaa and that but frankly I don't understand it. A sheep is what, one who just follows blindly the other without thinking? We don't do that. We carefully choose what we want, buy it when and how we want and, in most cases, refrain from buying the latest brand new devices unless the price is right and even then if it serves as a solution to a problem, otherwise we don't bother.

Retinas have always had pretty decent specs, it's the storage options that were shamefully overpriced. This is only made worse by the fact you can't just put any reasonably priced SSD upgrade in there. Gotta pay a premium for that special 'Apple-proprietary' SSD

When your buying a laptop the build quality becomes a lot more important than say a desktop built from individual components. This is because of everything from heat distributions, battery life potential and usability. On raw specifications yes macbooks seem like a ripoff but over time they tend to be worth it because I'd argue they last a lot longer as well as retain more resale value. For me, the touch pad alone is unrivalled by any other windows laptop I've used, as well as the keyboard being a joy to use (im talking about a macbook air) on top of that Osx to me is a lot more streamlined than Windows 10 which bogs my desktop system down with useless junk. I should also add that I haven't noticed a degradation of performance over time with my macbook, unlike every windows system I've used which always ends up needing wiping and starting over. So my point is that if your spending nearly 1k on a laptop you probably want to be sure it lasts a good amount of time and maintains a high level of performance and usability over time. I used to be an apple skeptic but atleast in terms of their laptops I do think they are worth every penny.
