Lovely machines, but we're not all cloud lovers. I'd be wanting at least 1TB ssd for that money.

In my experience, no, they won't refund. Even if you tell them you're returning the more expensive one immediately and buying it at the cheaper price. They have you by the balls unless you can afford to buy both now. Otherwise this price will go back up by time you get to return and several working days later before you get the refund.

Well, you can live with one kidney, so...
Great deal for this particular machine! But have always been wary of the MacBook Pros and over-time they've not only gone up in price but become less and less repairable/upgradeable in their quest for making it lighter and thinner. I know many other machines are like this, but other machines aren't £1500-2000 with just one year warranty! I guess at this point someone will suggest getting third-party insurance and 'having an accident' if the machine fails...

Or half a nut!
I get 8% off Argos from my company so this would be a really fantastic deal, if only there were stock for collection/delivery.
I have one of these and love it. I thought what the heck do I need a touch bar for but I miss it badly when I use my other machine.

Hey! May I ask what you do use it for? Cheers

Silver colour still in stock.
OOS

Is this because there is a new range coming? or Argos are stopping selling Apple? or Argos are just being nice ...
I know Mac user/lovers won't agree, but it's ridicilous price for an i5/8gb ram/512ssd laptop...
I know it's apple but even at that price, it's still an i5 and 8gb.

Dell's xps 13 is similar in size and aesthetics and imo a better machine. I managed to snag 7th Gen i7, 16gb, 512gb SSD on dell outlet for under £1k just before Xmas. Arrived last week and is superb - battery lasts 10 hours with normal use - perhaps the best laptop I've ever bought.

If you're not bothered about the apple brand, keep an eye out on dell outlet, especially when they run promotions of 10-15% every so often.

This deal is not really new. They were this price already until a week ago (in jan sale without a code), then a few days later they are back to full price with a code to bring it back to the sale price.

I got John Lewis to price match this offer, and get a 2 year warranty instead of 1 year with Argos. Can also get John Lewis vouchers through several work schemes worth another ~5% off.
I bought a 2016 i7 16GB non touch bar 13" MBP last week for £1000 with warranty til Jan 2020.

Before buying the touchbar version I'd watch the teardown videos showing how non-repairable they are!

At least with non-touchbar version you can change the storage and battery.

Replaced my XPS 15 (2017) with it as the XPS was sadly too unreliable

For me it's not about being 'bothered about the Apple brand', it's OS X. Find me a new laptop running OS X with these specs for cheaper and I'd go for it. Unfortunately no such product exists.

oddly enough been looking at the XPS 13. I want a small, light weight but i7 / 8 to 16GB RAM for deve work. I was hopoing for sub £1000 and it ticked the boxes but it wasnt good?

Im not a Mac fan but they seem to be the best for dev machines (plus I can get a nice death star to cover up that apple logo )
Seems to be showing out of stock everywhere for the 13” ones...
Seems like a lot to spend just before an 8th gen Intel refresh, performance will improve drastically on the new model.
old generation i5? no wonder theyre trying to clear this out but they gonna need to try much harder

Contrary to the above under distance selling reg, you can return it. If you can, buy another and return the original one ensuring to use the correct return codes/order number so as they refund the correct one.
Take from this what you will but this seems to be a real design flaw. Please don't shoot the messenger, these are expensive items and should not have this type of issue.

That is exactly what I said, so I have no idea where your "contrary" statement comes from? As I said - they won't refund until they receive it back, plus several days later, by which time this deal price will be over - hence I said to buy both now if you want it at this price and return the more expensive one, not exactly rocket science

Surprised this year lot of Apple products are discount or before you could not get penny off them
Guys, what you all have failed to mention is that there are 2 security flaws with Intel and ARM Processors that when fixed could reduce the performance drastically. They are called MELTDOWN AND SPECTRE, its all over the news. Anyone buying a PC using these highly compromised chips right now must be desperate or unknowing of the issues, especially expensive machines like this. Apparently AMD chips are fine. Voting very very cold with this one.

Here is one example:

As the technology industry continues to react to two major CPU bugs, we’re starting to see early signs of performance issues from security patches designed to fix the problems. Epic Games has released a chart of CPU usage after it patched its back-end services to address the Meltdown vulnerability. It shows a roughly 20 percent increase in CPU utilization, immediately after the patches were applied. The company released the chart to “provide a bit more context” around recent login issues and stability with its Fortnite game.

We have both. I got the Dell from Currys with some cashback and a part ex for around £1200. Me and the wife use both machines. We both agree that the Mac experience is far superior. The trackpad is better, the OS works better. Battery lasts longer on the Mac as well. Gestures - Windows is nowhere as smooth as Mac OS. Spec for price, the Dell wins hands down. But if i had to reach for one, it would naturally be the Mac. I grab the Dell only if the Mac is being used by my wife or I need to run something that does not run natively on the Mac.

I agree that the current Mac RRP is ridiculous, but this is a great price. I also own a Samsung S8, which incidentally I prefer to the wife's iphone. Absolutely hate the bloody iphone and itunes. I am not a brand snob or even loyal. But the Macbook is something that has no competition in the Windows world as yet.

No idea. I tend not to use it on beaches or whilst playing in sandpits with my kids. My little one watches movies on it and often gets toast crumbs and chocolate flakes on the surface. Quick wipe down with a baby wipe occasionally is required to stop it being sticky, but I have had no issues at all. But then he uses the Dell as well and neither have had issues with food crumbs.

Maybe next time I am on the beach, should I throw some sand on it and see if develops an issue? I am not sure what your point is?

Are you going to bother writing this on every single computer deal (both pc AND Mac), that has existed since 1995?
If you look into the keyboard issue, it can be caused by dust. Yes, dust and Apple knows this. The repair is very expensive out of warranty and most people will not understand that Apple deliberately make their devices difficult to repair so that they can make more money. They keyboard repair will cost you over £450 to repair out of warranty, and if the issue arises again? That's right, you will need another £450 repair. I'm not sure what it will take for people to wake up and understand that their is no magical engineering on Apple products, they have flaws just like any other device.

Thanks for that info. I wasn't aware of such an issue. My Mac came from John Lewis, so has a 3 yr warranty on it. I am not too worried about it because JL's customer care is excellent. We had one of the early low travel keyboard 12" Macbooks. Really did not like the feel of that keyboard and sold it a month or so ago. Never had any issues with that, so heres hoping nothing bad like dust befalls my current one.

Also fully agree that Apple repair charges are stupidly high. Not to mention the post Brexit price hike.

I have the MacBook Pro 15” touchbar higher spec and I’m a student. The laptop is very good, fast and convenient. However, I must advise please check the size in store, the MacBook I ended up purchasing was much bigger than expected and didn’t fit the tables in lecture halls too well. Also those wondering whether the touchbar is worth it. It isn’t. Having the touchbar at least for me while it is better than the old style much more adaptive to apps etc it doesn’t justify its price.

If you can afford it it’s a great machine but if you are on edge about touchbar and no touchbar, go for no touchbar the touchbar is gimmicky and isn’t worth the extra price to pay.
I got the 13” 2017 MacBook Pro space grey with touch bar as first MacBook and would never go back to a windows machine for home use after twenty years on windows, build quality and speed blow others out of the water and just works

I have been looking at the DELL XPS 13 (despite having an iPhone and iPad, I want a Windows :Laptop and not a MAC. Also looking at the HP Envy 13 which is even better value with a 360SSD, i7, touch sceen (but 1080P) and dedicated graphics for around £1000 but there are discounts around which bring it down to sub £900. Have you considered one of these?

Something keeps drawing me back to the first gen Microsoft Surface Book though for similar money (where available) - something about the design/product I like even though it will be older tech (6th gen processor) and smaller drive (256GB) but with a much better screen.

Dilemma! Do not want to play games on it, but it's for business use so general office use, presentations out of the office (with projector) and designing company website.

Any more thoughts yourself on which way to go?

I’m in similiar situation. Use iPad Pro and iPhone. Wanted a windows laptop for work - bought a surface pro 4 and hated it - so many issues (just checkout reddit). I’m loving the look of the XPS 13 and the portability , especially the latest model. Trying to decide between 1080p (for battery life) or QHD.
