    to fellow brits,

    if i buy a base model 15" macbook pro with the 14% discount that i am entitled to within the next month and get the free 3 year warranty/1 year telephone help that comes with it.

    do you reckon i'll get anywhere near the £1550 i will pay for now come next sept/october or whenever the haswell version comes out or even the 2nd gen rmbp.

    i really need a new laptop. current one is dying. but can only afford the base which is not ideal as i would like 16gb and 512gb min and may be able to afford in the future depending on resale value and prices coming down(hopefully)


    just want insight from fellow students/enthusiasts that have past experience in selling macbook pros etc.

    i have checked ebay and currently there are lots of rMBPs with just 6/7 months warranty going for around 1350/1400. how much value would 3years warranty/1 year phone add?


    thanks

    p.s. i am student in london so i get 14/15% discount and have been working part time in the past few months/not drinking as much/drinking tesco value beer to afford this hahahaa.

    p.p.s. do cMBPs or macbook airs or any other apple laptop hold its value better than the rMBP? i dont mind using something else if it means i save/recoup more moniessssssss.

    cant you just use a cheap laptop, or uni computers for a while? as a student i know as well as you do that universities provide enough facilities so you dont really need your own computer at all.
