Given the new one with roughly equivalent specs is a tad shy of £1500 (without the fancy bar), if you are in the market for a MacBook Pro, the last model can be picked up at a very good price. Most places are selling the hard drive version for more than this. This is a just released Black Friday deal. So it's still expensive, but less expensive than anywhere else. Its a very powerful computer and some are saying better than the new one in many ways as it actually has the ports and the SD card slots, all taken off the new one.
This was being posted as a deal on here only a week ago at over £1300.

You are correct my error, I have changed it. Thanks.

Not a bad price, but these really shine with 16gb RAM. Not sure if you can upgrade it in these though?

Planned obsolescence

If it was upgradeable all round, ok, but even Apple diehards are getting tired of them shutting out the 3rd party upgrades, even more so with the 2016 models!

i disagree...they run very nicely with 8Gb....now the SSD on the other hand really needs to be 256Gb...

It would be If you could find someone selling the PCI-E SSD's that Apple ship in the MBPr

Strictly speaking this isn't a deal, this model was always £999 RRP. You could shop around and get it around the £900 mark. I understand that these models are desirable because they have more ports and aren't really any slower, but it's still no saving on RRP.

OWC does with its Aura range, if you want to pay through the nose. Otherwise I will play the waiting game and see how the adapters pan out. So far, the ones on the market will adapt M.2 drives but cannot boot so not much use for notebooks.

Im actually the other way around, I'd rather the RAM. One of the great things about the MBPs and MAC OS is that you probably can go months without restarting your computer. I have 10+ chrome tabs open in multiple windows, and I can run a multitude of background apps along with a Windows 10 VM without a hitch. That wouldnt be possible (while also maintaining a stutter free experiance) with only 8gb Ram. And if you're only buying a MBP to browse the internet its quite a lot of money wasted these are real productivity workhorses.

Though if you're only running one or two apps a time then sure why not....
