Expensive for what is essentially an ipad with a keyboard attached to it.


Which has a trackpad and can run desktop class software....

Not sure if trolling or badly misinformed.

Seeing the words "dual core" in 2019, next to a price tag in excess of £800, while being labelled as refurbished paints an hilarious picture.

Someone's definitely trolling though. Masterful trolling by Apple.

Was eyeing up one of these on the US store but think I’ll go for the new MacBook Pro and free set of Beats (sell the latter ).

Heat added though.

Will it run minecraft?

who cares of the functionality, performance and price when you would look uber cool in a coffee shop and be the envy of your social circle. Neither you or them know why, but yes you are now a proud (refurbished) Apple Macintoshbook owner.

Very tempted, HEAT!

So its this, £800 M3 MacBook from JL or 2019 128gb Air with "free" beats for £989

Decisions, decisions

Well, I suppose if you don’t want something that just works then forget it.

Love the “hate Apple” mob who are so obsessed they have to slag every Apple offer. Lots of people love em.... they are seamless bits of kit, and obviously not “bleeding edge” but iPhones are ace, Macs are ace and there is a big big market for them for people in the Apple eco system.

I’ve got Apple products, as well as a chrome book.... both work well together, ironically utilising the google software.

Hey if you don’t like it, jog on.... but if you do, then this is a good deal.
Wonder if they’ll change the keys on faulty 2018 models for free when they release the updated Air later this year?

Purchased the 2017 Macbook air 256gb to replace the seized MBP 13" 2015 512gb. It does what I need it to albeit sluggish at times.

£800 isn't bad at all considering the base model is £1100 but a paltry 128gb is a joke.

Yes they will repair and replace key board for upto 4 years free of charge of you have my faults
I have this model. I upgraded from a 2012 Air, which served me well. For me, the dual core means I get the power I need to do my work, but I don’t kill the battery. It actually last me all day and then some!

I hope this last me st me as long as my old one!

They’re changing the keys from butterfly to scissor with the potential 2019 model. To be clear I’m wondering if they will change the keys, and the bottom shell for free to scissor.

After two in store repairs and one complete bottom shell replacement. Apple accepted my MacBook Air as a return - they could not fix the persistent issue of the keys failing.

Product for typical apple users who would buy any junk with apple logo on it and within 1k budget . 1 minute silence...

Aren't the new iPad Pros a lot more powerful than this? I couldn't live without the trackpad personally, otherwise I would go for the Pro over this.

Option 3, sell the beats. True Tone is a nice addition to the new one.

Yep. You're on a forum trying to put others down for their preferences and purchasing decisions. You're definitely winning, keep being you.
We have this laptop with 256gb hard drive, I enjoy using it never had a problem, battery life is great, actually our first Apple laptop. but compared to the i5 windows 10 HP laptop this is much faster and enjoyable to use.

There’s a lot more factors that affect performance than just the number of cores. It has a NVMe SSD and a 2560x1600 IPS display. I don’t think that a HP crapbook costing £500 with a 1TB mechanical 5400rpm harddrive and horrible boxy 15.4” 1366x768 TN panel display is better value just because it might have a “quad core” cpu. This isn’t for running virtual machines or developing, it’s designed to be a quick machine for editing word documents, browsing the web and editing the occasional video. A lot of ultrathin Lenovo’s use dual core Intel CPUs too, dual core provides better battery life and doesn’t need as much cooling as quad core.

I really don't want to come across as a mindless hater but I simply don't understand why you would spend £900 on a machine for word editing, browsing and occasional video editting.

And that’s ok. The beauty of consumerism is that you don’t have to buy anything.

So if you don’t like it, and a £299 machine does all you need and you are happy with it then I’m chuffed for you.

There are plenty of traits and trends and products I don’t understand and I am ok with that.

I don’t need to come across as a hater because of it - I don’t even have to comment. It’s a generation system.

Not all casual users are poor or want a low quality computer. Some actually want the premium standard of Apple, hence why they make this.
Better off buying the new Air for £989, should be able to sell the free beats headphones for at least £150.
Went with the Pro and so far liking it, especially the touch bar and Touch ID


Slightly missing the quietness of the fan less MacBook though
