    I'm thinking about upgrading from a MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2013) to an Apple MacBook Pro 13 (Mid 2017). I'm wondering if the current deal is any good, or if I should wait for the next promo.

    I got 10% off my MacBook, without the beats stuff. I like the Apple EarPods more.

    But it does seem like a pretty good deal though :yes:

    Free headphones is better than no free headphones.
    Thanks, I will probably go for it. Not sure if I will keep or sell the beats.

    It's not worth the extra for the 256GB version, it's still very little storage. Just use cloud storage or some kind of hard-drive, it's cheaper and/or a bigger capacity.

    Is that the education discount/promo? Personally I'd rather money off than some Beats headphones. There are better headphones...

    My current macbook air has 256GB and a 3TB external.
    The internal storage already feels too limited.

    So get a bigger internal SSD.

    I love my 1TB SSD plus external

    I was considering the 512gb, the 1tb is to much of a price different. I would throw in a Samsung 960 evo 1tb if apple didn't solder the thing in.

    Good plan. My 1Tb only has 400Gb actually in use
