I wish it had a reasonable number and variety of ports.

I have an early 2015 MacBook Pro and would love to upgrade, but only two USB-C ports on this and newer MacBooks, and one of them being needed for power sucks.

When will Apple realize dongles are not an elegant solution? Give us back our ports!

Damn. Wish I was in the market right now. Have the same computer but the 250 gb version and I love it. I initially hated the new keyboard but I learned to really, really like it a lot. Ended up being surprised at how much I like the computer. The port issue isn't a big deal when you get one of those big two-port dongles that has every port you would ever need.

does woot charge a restocking fee if we decide to return the item?

stopped spending $1000+ on laptops since my last laptop 3 years ago. If this one dies I am buying a chrome book.

The same color as every MacBook.

Seriously, a year later cost $1.5k.
Today world, 4k + 16gb ddr4 + 512 SSD M.2 + 15" inch cost $1.5k. Which one should I buy?

It's definitely a little frustrating but when I'm using my laptop on my lap, it doesn't bother me - and when I'm using it on my desk I have a usb c dock that gives me everything I need.

The only time it's REALLY an issue is when I need to use it someplace that is not my normal workspace, at which point I have to crack out my bag 'o' dongles. You DO get used to it (Which is not to say it's a good thing, just not necessarily a show stopper either)

They don't provide the model number, but this MacBook appears to be the newest version with only USB-C. You will need at least $50 in dongles to connect to hard drives, SD cards and external monitors. Also the keyboard is the worst Apple has ever made and mine has been in the shop 3 times. Also, I bumped the corner and the "taskbar" is now dead (not sure if this one has a taskbar). Apple has sacrificed quality for thinness.

I'm waiting for the space silver color to drop and then I'm in for at least 2!

At least it has an audio jack *facepalm*

I think I'd rather than the 4K Dell XPS that's on sale today at Woot for under $1,000. Much better deal.

Looks like this is the late 2016 model. I'm passing due to it being almost 2 year old model.

You can get a similar spec 2018 model directly from Apple for the same price.

I don't think that's true

https://www.apple.com/shop/buy-mac/macbook-pro

Apple has $1299 for 128GB SSD and 8GB RAM.
Apple has $1499 for 256GB SSD and 8GB RAM

+$200 for upgrade from 8GB to 16GB RAM
+$200 for upgrade from 256GB to 512GB SSD

Best similar offering from Apple is $1899, and that's with Core i5 instead of i7.

Good price.

I recently bought the 2017 16/512 I5 from Apple for $1609. It's the newer model, but it was also refurbished. (Though Apple refurb is basically new.)

Since I use my computers forever, I'm replacing a 2008 MacBook, I'm glad to have the most recent model, but this is a good deal.

I don't need a lot of portability from my Macbook, I use it as a true laptop maybe 20% of the time. But, since I like having that option, I bought a docking station.

You can leave your monitor(s), mouse, keyboard, external drive, etc., plugged into the dock, and when you're ready to use it as a desktop machine, just plug the dock into your USB-C port and there ya go (you can keep the lid open or closed, your call). This is not something the Macbook has a monopoly on, just saying it's an option for those who, like me, don't want to own a desktop AND a laptop. I just prefer OS X over any version of Windows, and I unfortunately am willing to pay the Apple Tax for that.

Hello, is it possible to specify whether you get the space grey or silver model?

Seriously? Why would I want to spend another $500 for a "Crapbook" that has less of a processor, less screen size, half the resolution, less memory, less hard drive... heck, less *Everything* than the refurbished 15" laptop also on sale today... the ONLY thing it has going for it is that "trendy" Apple logo, and a case that can get lost in a file folder... I'll take power and capability over hyped up, overpriced trash any day... Pass

Can someone at woot please contact me about an order for this product that was declined for no reason? Order#: ########.

(Update): Got a reply email from someone there with a canned response that is incorrect. I will never buy from this pathetic company again. I will also alert the social media team at the telecom company I work for to spread the word.

Same here. Did you buy through Amazon pay? I did with the same result. I wonder if anyone got this laptop?

That's a rather dramatic response to a decline from a 3rd party verification system.

We don't control the security checks. It's often caused by the address on your billing sources not being the same.

Yes, many people.

Make sure that your billing address on Amazon matches the billing address on your payment source. That's a common reason for declines.

Both cards match my billing address through Amazon. I sent a note for customer service to call me, with phone number provided, after the denial. All I get in return is the canned apology letter. To not work with people to correct the issues means poor customer service to me and another customer lost to you.
