    Idk but I think the cheapest one seems better just slightly less storage but it’s only for school work. I’m in year 12 and will hope to use it all through uni. I can get the bottom one for pretty much £1k

    Windows will help you run most software and will be very compatable with other pc in your institution but it depends if you want mac or windows but the second one is cheaper and slightly better but a quad core option wouldve been great

      Ridiculous waste of money. You can buy a windows laptop for £800 with specs 10x better than an Apple Mac.

      This one is most probably the better one for the price. You can get this + https://goo.gl/3wiJCq which is a SanDisk 128 GB USB stick. Password protected and a 5 year guarantee also its USB 3.0 meaning it'd transfer files faster than USB 2.0 (unless your computer's ports are USB 2.0, then it'd transfer at the rate of a 2.0) You'll have a better processor, same storage, better memory, better graphics. You could probably get a better laptop for cheaper but from these 2 it has to be the 2nd one + a USB stick.

      edit: also since you can apparently get the bottom one for 1k then you'd save £300. so yea, much better getting the 2nd one.
      Also you can get even cheaper 128GB USB drives, so yea, if you only want one of these 2 then it'd be the bottom one + a cheap 128GB usb.

      The baseline Retina MacBook Pro is the default answer for "what MacBook should I get?" questions, if you don't have a particular use case then it's the best balance of performance, portability and price of Apple's current offerings. If you need more storage buy an external HDD for your documents and media libraries and save the internal storage for applications and key files.

      Why a macbook for that? You can get decent enough laptops for around a quarter of the price that would do just fine.
