    Hi

    I have been waiting years to be able to buy a MacBook and wanted to know whether you think £900 is good price for a 2015 Retina MacBook Pro 13" (8Gb Ram/128Gb storage)? I think it is still listed at £1250 on the Apple UK site.

    My other option is the 11" MacBook Air that is being sold off or the 13" version.

    I like having the option of the retina screen.

    Thanks in advance.

    Lou

    It's listed at £1,059.00 in the refurb store so yes, £900 is a good price.

    Look around, you may see some decent deals on Amazon as well.

    It depends on where the £900.00 purchase is from.

    • are they reputable with at least 14 day no quibble open box and used RETURNS policy

    • is the Warrantee still in place with apple if so how long is it for (I bought from JLP they give automatic 2 year and had a 'special' making it 3 year) Also if the company is bricks and mortor JLP will price match.

    • Is it a business purchase? if yes check they are VAT registered just ask for their number. This also tells you if they are a small new company or not.

    Price is important but you want to cover eventualities with your purchase too.
    You've been waiting years - kudos - you want the purchase to be 100% hassle free.

    Hope this helps

    Hi

    If its a well known UK high street name and you have a John Lewis nearby I would 100% get a price match and benefit from their 30 day No Quibble returns.

    Plus they have the FREE 3 year cover at the moment (that I got):

    Store checker:

    Phone number for price match:
    0345 604 9049

    Price match exclusions etc

    I bought my rMBP 13" last summer from John Lewis, could not be happier a year on.

    ps
    JLP wont price match Costco as they are a "discount club"
