Price is great -- but kind of a weird combo with only 256 GB.

Was watching for deals on the quad i5 1.1 with 8/512 for the kids -- same $1199. thinking they could use the extra storage. They could prob get away with the 256 tho... quad i7 and double ram might be nice.

Assuming they will have the deal again before xmas....

It is another $550, but the 13" MacBook Pro Magic keyboard with four Thunderbolt slots gets you a 12% to 25% faster system with better cooling, more memory, faster SSD.

Edit: if you are really looking for a cheap Apple laptop, consider waiting for the new 12" (14"?) ARM based Apple silicon model.

Sure... but only if you really need the power? $550 for 12-25% seems like a lot for a basic user.

as for the ARM MBP -- guessing its gonna be close to $2K.... too much $$ for the kids. =)

I just got one of those yesterday (i5, 16, 512) and had to look very carefully at this thread to decide whether I made a mistake.

Me too...14" in a 13" form factor...I'm sure it'll be fast enough for my web browsing and Libre Office uses.
