    I think this is a pricing error, however, it's here at £1299 from Argos. The other colours are £1549 as per RRP.

    I'm considering ordering one and returning my 16 13" base 512 for this... Confused.

    Did you order it? I wonder if it is the 2015 model being at that cheap price.

    If you look at the specs, M5, and intel graphics, it's Definitely a 2016 model.

    I've asked John Lewis about a price match as I'm thinking about it. That way, I'll get the 2 year warranty at the same price.

    Didn't the 2015 MacBook use M5 and intel graphics too. It seems strange how there is no mention of special sale and a mention of the retail price and it being reduced.

    I think it's just priced wrong. Intel 515 is the 2016 model.

    Is there much difference in the real world between the M5 and M7 chips? My wife is looking for one of these just now and had planned an M7 refurb, but this deal looks good.
