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

theEDUstore has been posted recently as thrashing the apple student discount by £200.
Now for black friday weekend they are offering an ADDITIONAL £75 off with code MBPRO16 making for a total saving of £275 off the apple student price or a whopping £529 off the RRP.

Crucially this also comes with a 4 year warranty as opposed to Apple's basic 1 year. theEDUstore are owned by one of the biggest apple resellers in the UK whom normally supply to educational institutions, so they are trustworthy.

3348052.jpgI had bought from apple student last week but returned today, apple has a no questions asked 14 day return policy, I suggest anyone who can does the same!

Amazing deal
Can someone please tell me how this is a deal? I'm asking seriously, not to troll or to cause arguments. What makes this product worth £1,870 in comparison to the significantly cheaper alternatives?

If you want a 16 inch MacBook you’ll get one with ~£500 off the RRP just weeks from launch with a significantly extended warranty.
There may be cheaper alternatives but then again you could say that for anything.
A deal is only a deal If you already want/need the product

Essentially it takes the current MacBook Pro lineup and fixes the problems with it. It’s powerful and can be specced very high. Compared to a specced up 15inch MBP or 13inch, it’s pretty decently priced for an over priced range in general.

MacBooks have always been more expensive than pcs running windows 10 etc. Some people like myself find them to be more productive and user friendly, whilst appreciating the better screen they tend to have, brilliant build materials & build quality and high performance. Some are content creators that again appreciate the colour accuracy of the screen and high resolution, high performance and the new keyboard in this compared to the current standard lineup which run on butterfly switches.

Tempted by this but realistically I know I’ll be better off waiting for the much rumoured 14inch version in the works and due for release when intel unveiled their 10th generation i7 and i9 processors.
can vouch for theedustore, brilliant deal. wish they had better discount on imacs though!

Firstly, like any Apple product, it offers niche things at a premium. This is a 'deal' because it's actually significantly cheaper than student discount (10%).

But from a comparisons perspective... assuming if you built a PC equivalent - let's very loosely use the word equivalent here... For the sake of arguments, a lot of these numbers may be lower so I'm not giving the appearance of inflating the worth of this.

CPU - £200
GPU - £200
SSD - £100
RAM - £60
PSU - £50
Motherboard - £80
Monitor - £400
Perpherials/Sound/Network - £100
Case - £80

So you're paying like 700 for the form factor and macOS... And that's comparing it to a PC.

In terms of laptop comparison, maybe the XPS is close enough to this, dell.com/en-…top. For the sake of display comparison, I'm going to have to go with the £1,849.00 version. Heck, if you want to also include the BF discount on that, it becomes £1572. I like Apple to be fair, and given that I need portability, and that it's already at 1572, I think I'd rather pay an extra 300 for a Macbook.

In my eyes, I see the RRP price as being ridiculous in terms of pricing, but at this price, I honestly think it's comparable.
Fantastic Deal, just bought one using my school email address.
For the base models (ie unmodified) they have great prices. For the custom build, eg upgrade anything and the equivalent discount drops from around 20% to around 3% making them uncompetitive.

So, if like me the base model, either with the 512GB or 1TB drives is good enough, then its a great price.

I'm in.
First thing that comes to my mind. They have so much space on the sides yet they decide not to include a numpad. This is just weird.

Top spec RRP is £5,769.00. EduStore is £5,117.10

Similarly though if you were to specify the base model on Edustore Vs Apple you would save around 20%. Now if you simply want to upgrade the graphics to 8GB then on apple the upgrade price over the base 1TB model is around £85. For the same upgrade on Edu Store (as its now a custom build), the price goes up £330 ! over the same base model price so your equivalent discount drops to around 3%.

I take your point on the top end model, there is still a bid saving.

Sadly you can’t upgrade the graphics to 8gb. They only sell base model specs for i7 and i9.

As soon as I was forced to use a mac (and to learn macos) because my windows crashed, I never turned back. Am sure this has been said before, but anyone using Windows should try, to experience the increase in productivity and pleasure of using Mac OS. I had Mac AND Windows installed on the same machine (a self built hackintosh) and the performance of Windows (8, not 10) was appalling compared to MacOS: random slow downs, constant annoying updates, general ugliness. For a programmer/designer it is really easy to see what makes Macs better. Also the quality of the build is amazing on macbook pros, and they last for years with good resale value, but I hear that the latest Microsoft surface is good too. And maybe Windows 10 is ok, can't tell as I haven't tried for long. If this is your daily work device the premium you pay is well worth it imo.

It was what I was trying to get at and I gave a breakdown on how much the premium actually is.
A great deal at 22% discount, even if you spec a 13" to get close to this its more expensive with a slower processor.
Just ordered one.

I think I’m going to compromise on the RAM. Was planning to get 32GB but I can’t justify extra £600+ for that. Will probably go for the 1TB model.

I ordered just after 2pm and Parcel Force say will be delivered on/by Tuesday 3rd (was expecting Monday). Would have been nice to have had the option to pay extra for PF Saturday service.

It won't be delivered on Sat, it will most likely be Monday. That's what happened when I placed an order on Friday last week. I was told by Tuesday, but it arrived on the Monday.

Surprisingly I’ve just received an out for delivery notification. I guess this will depend on your local depot then.
