An absolute beauty of a machine but not a great price.
If its it's not an i9 64gb ram with a
2TB SSD this is ice cold!
No way a deal
Well, it will last you a while and is super quick? Nope, can't convince myself. Heat for the lowest high street price though (same at Curry's if you're that way inclined).
Change the 2 to a 1 and they’d have a winner, speaking as an Apple hardware fan, though more 2015 and before.
Ridiculous price BUT that offer for Office is decent.
£20 off the £60 365 subscription is average

But £70 off the £120 one-off purchase is great for a legitimate copy. If anyone knows a way of getting a legitimate retail copy of Office 2019 for £50 or less without buying a computer alongside please let me know! lol

He said he wants to spend money. Why don’t you download and sell it to him for £50. If it stops working you give him money back.

Sorry, I should have clarified I meant an official/legit copy, and from a reputable retailer. I know you can torrent, and you can buy Office and full Windows suites for a few pounds online, I've done it before, but I personally prefer to pay for things I own nowadays, and be 100% worry-free, with no risks. I must be getting old.

Because if I wanted an ex-OEM or EU copy (or whatever other options there are), I'd buy one for £5 or less, and not pay £50.

I know they're available for less, but not from a UK retailer for an 100% legit version. Thanks though.

No that's fine mate it's your choice:) And I appreciate that!
This is a good price, even cheaper than KRCS, good find OP.

Obviously voted cold by people who don’t need to spend this money on a laptop, but for those that do, this is a good price.

Whilst I agree with the principle of what you're saying, who really 'needs' to spend circa £2,500 on a laptop?
£1,000 these days gets you a pretty high end machine, specs and design wise. If your software needs require MacOS (eg design type software presumably) surely you'd be better served by a larger screened iMac at less money.
OS Catalina is currently way too buggy to justify spending this sort of money on too, in my opinion.

I have had my MBP15 (late 2014) for over 5 years now and use it at least 5 days per week professionally. A £1000 laptop is not comparable to the MBP posted above so there is little point trying to justify that, and as you say, some people need (or prefer) macOS.
This is a good price and if the 16” isn’t announced in the next 4 weeks I’ll be upgrading, although to a higher spec at around £3500. Because I can justify it, and I understand that some people can’t which is absolutely fine, but it doesn’t change my opinion that this is a good price for this particular model for those who will quickly make that investment back, likely in a month or two. Just because it costs more than a Windows laptop does not mean it should be cold. It’s a common problem Apple products face when being posted on HUKD. Some people cannot get their head around Apple products being (to those who need them) better nor understand that professionals see these products as key to their work and worth every penny.
Catalina is fine on a clean install btw, it’s upgrades which are having the issues.

I've been using Apple products for about 20 years, so you're preaching to the converted. Having said that, I don't think their products are actually worth what they charge for them really. That view has made me replace some of my Apple products with alternatives.
If you can justify the price (or higher), that's ok. I disagree that a laptop of this price (or higher) can be considered an investment though. These are ultimately media/productivity tools that will need to be replaced/upgraded after a few years. The same is true of much cheaper machines.

It all depends on what you use them for. From my experience with Apple hardware they last a lot longer than a few years and that is one reason I avoid cheaper Windows-based alternatives. Cheaper laptops are false economy, I’d have bought at least two in the time I’ve had my most recent MBP. That said, I use my MBP almost every day for work and it’s not once let me down, I’m a lot more productive due the the performance and that lets me justify the price. As I have repeatedly said, this price cannot be justified to the majority, but for those who use the machine daily for professional purposes, the investment is worth every penny. I use the word investment because it pays me back in time (saved from using a slower/unreliable alternative), which is more valuable than money. Imo.
