I personally wouldn't go for this laptop as the RAM and hard drive are not upgradable but if you are looking for this laptop its a great price.

Can't you plug in a portable hard drive to increase capacity?

Yes, you can and if you don't mind doing this its a good laptop, the flash drive is lightning fast, however I have a 1tb SSD on my macbook and nearly have it full thanks to itunes.

Do you know the direct link please

for £50 more, this looks to be available at Costco, brand new with 2 year warranty. Costco membership desirable. Hot Deal.

Your daughter will be able to get 15% off Macs with the student education offer they have on all the time, will probably work out cheaper than both Costco and refurb. I got a 11" Mac air for £764.15

You obviously don't run OS X then as if you can find a reason to need more than 8gb of ram on this operating system then please share the reasons

And you can replace the hard drive, it's just not a simple slot in job that's all

You propably do not have one but
It is not laptop, it's MacBook pro
You don't need to upgrade anything for next 10 years

Wow, people are now defending Apple's decision to completely refuse any user customisation or future upgrading at all. You have no idea what may come to market or be the recommended specs for Apple's next os.

SSD is upgradeable but very pricey.

this is part true...and whilst i would like a new macbook i havent bitten on a new one yet because i just know the next model will be touchscreen or some other improvement

but the other reason i havent changed is im still running a 6 yo mbp (dual core) which hasnt had a single problem. i havent had to reinstall or 'fix' osx once in 6 years. i have 2 windows machines that need regular reinstalling/windows repair etc and have been through 2 other windows lap tops in that time. ive spent more in cheap acer/dell/asus that have failed in that 6 year period than on the original mbp (which was on student discount). apple have left some older ipads and iphones behind but there is very little in the way of specs limitation on osx (unless you go back to early intel chips)

someone above said 10 years for a macbook... i think thats optimistic but its only after a free uprade to osx yosemitie that im starting to see and noticable lag or slowness from my low spec machine. in the same period m$ have tried to charge me to upgrade from xp to vista to 7, to 8. thats half the price of a macbook right there.

for cost and reliability the 'right' answer is linux. but until the learning curve flattens out ,even on something ui heavy like ubuntu, then i just havent got time to waste trying to work out why my drives arent mounted properly and my wifi dongle doesnt work which software repository is which etc etc etc.

I do have one, however I upgraded my macbook pro to 16gb ram and a 1tb Samsung 840 evo SSD, they are phenomenal machines but when you have over 300gb of music that you like to organise through itunes hard drive space becomes an issue.

If you like to do any sort of gaming or video editing (even using imovie) you will notice a big improvement I updgraded my 2012 macbook pro from 4gb to 16gb and the improvement was well worth the £60.

And will void your warranty I believe as you cannot get apple to do it for you.

Is there any promo codes knocking around that you can use on the Costco one?

Hot! How do you opt for the 0% finance? Thought that was only available at certain points through the year?

I'd like to know this, too.
