Apple MacBook Pro laptop down to £835

Head over to Amazon if you want to buy the cheapest brand new Apple MacBook Pro laptop on the market. At £835, this model from an Amazon Marketplace seller, CCBA Electronics, is 16 per cent cheaper than the £999 Apple would charge online or offline.

The device runs on the latest Intel processor, a dual-core Core i5 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, with an Intel HD4000 Graphics video solution, a 13.3in display, 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard disk drive and Mac OS X Lion operating system.

The notebook, which carries the ID number MD101/BA, comes in a frustration-free packaging and supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and has an average battery life of up to seven hours. Other features include a Facetime HD webcam, USB 3.0, Displayport and Thunderbolt connectors and a DVD drive. Note that this is the non-retina model which means that its display has a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution.

As for previous generations, the MacBook Pro comes with a metal chassis and feels (and is built) like a tank. You can check out our review of the 13in Retina Apple MacBook Pro laptop here. Note however that we expect a new version of this laptop when Apple does WWDC later next month as Intel will announce a new processor range – Haswell - in a few weeks' time.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
