I do not see this price via student beans or employee portal, currently £721.65. Strangely the Ultra is the same price
It came out to be £10 cheaper lol, which is nothing in terms of getting a better deal through the Employee Portal / Student Account. What a joke.
You also get a lower buy price...
Depends on your use case. I've just got the Ultra and bought it because of it's size. I mainly use it to consume content at home (it doesn't very often leave the house), edit photos and a minor bit of video editing. For my particular needs it works very well, but I appreciate everybody has different requirements.
But you get lower rrp and can combine additional 10% with other mobile products.
