This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

TheEduStore have some amazing open box deals on MacBooks at the moment. These are returns where either the packaging has been damaged or the wrong spec was ordered initially.

The base model for £1644.50 is at least a £200 saving on top of the best student price I have seen it for since new. and beats the average regular non-student price it seems to be going for (£2,169.00) by £500.

You need a university email address to be able to create an account and use the site.

They also have the slightly higher spec'd i9 version for £1919.02:
MacBook Pro Retina with Touch Bar 16-inch 2.3GHz 8-core 9th-gen i9 processor - 16GB - 1TB SSD

Useless comment, this is a laptop not a tablet. Who would want a touchscreen laptop?

I’d say it’s worth it paying the extra few hundred pounds for the 4 years warranty personally!

Must say this is tempting 😳
One thing to note with these deals is you only get the balance of the Apple warranty. No additional warranty is included.

Great price(s)! I really want this put I don’t know anyone who has access to a uni email address!

Will you still be able to add Apple Care with these.
wow this is tempting!
Tried purchasing the i7 and i9 several times passing my card security but keep getting a failed message...

Does this come with their 4 years warranty?

This is probably just your bank being over cautious. I bank with barclays and whenever I try to spend over £500 in one go it asks me to respond to a text to confirm its actually me. The only trouble is the texts often take like half an hour to come through...
How long is the warranty on this gonna be then if not 4 years?

Really tempted as I could probably get a 11-1200 for my current 15 inch 2016 with touchbar - had a keyboard repair recently so it's probably about 20-30 cycles on battery and it's in great condition, also the higher spec Ed model.

Hmmm just wondering about warrant ycant find much info

I would have thought that you were probably right but I just checked my online account and I now have 4 MacBook Pros ordered?!

I don’t see the point of putting a touch screen on a laptop. It reduces battery life, the screen gets smudged and costs more. I’d rather have more ram then a touch screen
How do you know it doesn’t have the 4 year warranty?

“Review age of product in relation to the longevity of any remaining warranty “ does this not mean we have what’s remaining from the 4 years from the original purchase

The 4 year warranty cant be transfered from the original buyer, just bought one last week and emailed them about it incase i sold it
I've gone for the top one - I wanted the quicker graphics card but I can warrant losing out on £600 for a 4gb upgrade
I emailed them last week about the warranty that is how I know it is not included. As stated before you just get the balance of the apple warranty.
Pretty sure you can pay extra for AppleCare
Are MacBooks really worth the money? Been looking to get one for ages but just can’t justify it sadly:S

Build quality and screen wise theyre very nice, especially now they've fixed their dodgy keyboard. Apples touchpad is fantastic.

You can get alot better hardware in a Windows laptop, particularly the new AMD CPUs. GPU choice if a gamer is much better on Windows also.

Software is purely personal preference. It helps if you have other Apple devices as the communication amongst them is brilliant.

If you want Mac OS and the software it provides, it's the only choice so it's a captive audience. The hardware is expensive but is 'premium-grade' for that, there are no 'cheap and nasty' MacBooks in the range like with a Windows PC. Best to try a friend's machine before dropping that kind of money. Also get insurance/extended warranty if you do buy one, there are basically no serviceable parts on this computer and everything is on the single logic board.
I take it there is no way around the student email requirement that anyone knows of?

It depends on what you want to use it for to be honest.

They deliver a far superior users experience IMHO however they aren't for everyone. If you just compare spec sheets Windows based laptops may look like better deal but Apple make the hardware and software and for me it's a much more pleasant, polished user experience using Mac.

There is a much more limited selection of software available, although for my needs there is really great software. Lack of options isn't a problem if there is great software that is as good as or better than Windows alternatives.

For gaming you are much better off with a Windows machine, there is a limited selection of games on Mac, and those that are ported to Mac don't always run as well.

I'd argue it doesn't provide a better user experience - it is personal preference and you really need to try both, I could not get on with Mac OS and found if you want to do things Apple doesn't think you need to do then it becomes far more complex (eg through Terminal). The operating system is polished but has become very bloated recently.

Gaming point is correct, but also Apple provides very weak GPUs at the same price point as a comparable Windows laptop (e.g. Dell XPS 15) so even if you can game on the Mac, the gaming performance is behind where it should be but then people don't buy Macs to game on them really.
Wow.. dream machine. Wished I had the money for it

I've been a Windows advanced user for about 25 years, use shortcuts, virtual machines, server configs etc.
I've just switched to Mac as I do more creative work than gaming and if you are in that category, then I really recommend it.

It took me about 2 weeks to get used to the shortcuts and interface, at times I miss Windows but the layout is just cleaner and feels more modern.

If you are running virtual machines, or gaming then stick to Windows.
If you want an amazing piece of hardware that just feels polished and works.... get on the bandwagon and turn a blind eye to the leaky bank balance. You have been warned

The simple answer is no others will disagree but the for the specification they are well over priced and on top of that often throttle due to the poor cooling looks over fuction

I think they fixed many of the thermal issues with this model but there is definitely something to be said for Apple doing stupid things like making these unnecessarily thin and sacrificing repairability, expansion and thermals in the sake of designing it like this. I suspect many professionals would rather have a machine 3-4mm thicker with more useful features and design - I am fairly sure no-one ever said, 'wow this 2013 Retina MacBook Pro is far too thick and heavy'!

It's one of the reason's I'm keeping my MacBook over a Windows laptop.
Try and find a Windows i9 with 64gb ram and 2tb hard drive for the same price and similar screen/trackpad/speakers
