    The macbook is slightly better spec, but I think the pro looks and feels much better.
    Not sure I can be doing with faffing about with codes and quidco, but out of interest, how much does it bring the price down by?

    Fair enough, I do wonder if its worth the extra £90, but looking at the state of my mates white macbook which is only nine months old it probably is lol.

    well ive made my order
    you do not get the three years in the uk for a macbook anyways
    managed to get 14-15% discount so about £120-£130 it was
    they offered me two options for printers with £60 cashback so one works out for £10 and the wireless on about £30-£40
    opted for the wireless
    then i also brought the 3 year apple care for £46 normally £110
    they also offered me discounts on software etc.
