    I think for most people even the macbook air with the m1 will be more than fine.

    Same here. Top tier pro processor, 32gb RAM and 1TB HD. Should be a monster.

    Only thing its missing is an optical port.

    Can anyone post the base UK HE prices for the 5 models (2 x 14 and 3 x 16) please?

    Edit: And the RAM price increase, which is base £400 on all models

    I was considering chopping in my M1 24" iMac for the base 16" but not sure how much I'd get for my 512/16 model.

    I'm tempted by the max for the extra £200. I don't need it but I kind of want it.

    Sad bit is that they used to have optical ports (combined with the 3.5mm) but dropped it in the last redesign.

    If you can wait the edu store is usually cheaper than Apple direct (don’t think they are an ocuk competitor right so I can mention them)

    Would have upgraded my Mini if they stuck a M1 Pro or Max in them but not paying £3k for a 14" with a Max, that's daft money. Obviously not for users who need it, but my previous MacBooks all spent 90% of their life in clamshell mode anyway :D

    The images are from the UK Higher Education Discount Apple site. I'm not sure that price can be beaten unless you're a large enterprise customer.

    You can mention Apple and any Apple reseller, as OcUK doesn't sell Apple products.

    Sod it. 10/16 14" Pro ordered. Can't justify the Max.

    Bought a MPB16 from them once on Black Friday. There was an extra 10% off their already low prices!

    500 notes is a hell of a jump between 14" models.

    Am I correct in saying the only difference between the £2399 versions of the 14" and 16" is the bigger 1TB on the 14"?
    Given the 16" is obviously physically bigger, unless you really needed 1TB, surely the vast majority will just go for the base 16" instead of the higher tier 14" no?
