I know there will obviously be a lot of Applehaters on here, but for anybody looking for a cheaper Macbook pro, this seems a good price.

Rip off. I hate Apple unfortunately I have to use it for work. Only good thing is the os if you like the I’d check out hacikintosh search tonymacx86
128gb. Are they taking the ****?
Edited by moderator: "removed swear word" 14th May
I think it's worth paying a little extra for the Touch Bar model with double the thunderbolt 3 ports and higher tdp cpus.
I should add that I am generally an apple fan ( I have an older generation pro), but 128gb storage is poor value even at that price).

I do agree. My current laptop has the same. However once you get round to using a cloud for general files it ends up making a lot more sense accross other devices.

I'd rather have SSD for applications etc.
There is a new one for £1099 from Costco. No need to faff about with refurbished units.

Thats what i think .. my phone is 128gb .. Apple are proper taking the pi## these days
I repair these all day long, they are IMHO overpriced Junk, the only thing worth having is the OS try a Hackintosh.
These non touch bar Mac's have only 2 USB-c ports (monitor and power and that's it without a hub/docking station) and the fan is really loud.

I must be lucky because I've never had any problems with any of my MacBook pro's, I have 13" retina and 15" retina both top spec from apple, and I also have previous models 2011 13" and 15" both i7 models with no problems at all and my older 17" which I gave to my brother is still going strong. when you say you repair these all day long do you mean this particular model or all MacBook models and what sort of problems do you see more of with them ? I'm very surprised
HDD Failures all day long

grey or blue screen

Logic board failure many 2011 models

GPU Failures massive amounts;


The Apple store determined that the logic board failure was a cause of the manufactured faulty logic boards, known by Apple to cause GPU problems and heat up significantly more than usual, and would have been replaced by the extended repair programme. The reason for this extended repair programme was due to the 40,000+ complaints Apple received as well as a law suit about this problem.


Simple capacitor/resistor failures (crap stock) 20% tolerances used, nightmare to track.

etc etc

ppl can moan all they want. All my apple stuff has been flawless to date.

Anything windows based is ridiculously inferior in build quality.

Same here. 11 years with Macs. Not one problem. Both my windows laptops pre that time ended up in the tip.

I bought a dell xps 13 9360 during the 3rd year of my macbook and it started producing coil while + light bleed in the screen amongst other issues.

At this point Im only considering macbooks just in order to run windows on bootcamp because native windows machines are just of such poor build quality.

I used to hate my win pc's and then in circa 2006/7 bought an imac. Not looked back... apple all the way (aside my current traitor phone a note 8 lol)

I am an engineer and really loath microsoft. My macs literally have never missed a beat (although I do upgrade each chassis to the top spec it can take myself)

I find apple are a very refined and build quality is top notch in general compared to all the multitude of windows based offerings.

Iphones all to date aside the latest
Imac (my first apple product and still going)
Original macbook air 2008? - serves a purpose (still going aside a smashed screen)
Mac mini 2012 fully self upgraded awsome little chap (my desktop for photoshop etc)
Macbook 2009 (bit of an oddball not an air not a pro but still also hanging on in there)
Macbook pro 2010 fully upgraded but I need this and I felt it was on its last legs.
Ipad
Ipad
Ipad 4
Ipad mini 2
New macbook pro on way a little more dubious of the new ones as not very cheaply servicable but hey ho still have the other menagerie if not...

Finding it a bit of an ar5e now my phone is samsung tho

Possibly what is know as a fangirl 🙈. Still uncertain of the newer builds tho. Time will tell.

Worth a watch first


Interesting but I'd take Mac OS over Windows 10 when you get updates forced down throat that break or make things worse.

Mac OS also does this.

Never had an issue with macOS giving broken updates. Mac Mini 2012 still going strong.
Windows 10 OS another different league due to BS after BS.
I would suggest holding off until after the WWDC on the 6 June, Apple may update some of these devices which will cause sales of stock in shops anyway. Macbook Pro is expected to get the latest intel processors at least.
