      Top features

      - Thinner, lighter, and much faster so you can do more

      - Force Touch trackpad makes navigation faster and more intuitive than ever

      - 12-hour battery life let you work all day without being disturbed

      - macOS Mojave for professional-level computing

      Thinner, lighter, and much faster

      At just 13.1 mm thin and weighing under one kg, the Apple MacBook is made for computing on the move. You can slip it into a bag or case and enjoy access to everything that matters without compromising luggage space.

      A seventh generation Intel Core processor speeds up all your daily tasks, such as opening PDF files and loading videos.

      Packed full of performance and high-end features including a better-than-HD screen and super-fast SSD storage, the new MacBook is the ultimate Apple laptop for computing on-the-go.

      Force Touch trackpad

      The MacBook 12" features Apple's Force Touch trackpad. Rather than a normal ‘click', it vibrates to let you know a click has been registered. You click anywhere on the pad, so you aren't confined to using buttons at the bottom like most trackpads.

      You get different results depending on how hard you press, so you can activate double and left clicks simply by pressing slightly harder.

      All the normal Apple gestures are still present, so you can move between software, pages and applications with simple finger movements.

      12-hour battery life

      The 12 hour battery life means you can work all day between charges. If you do need to top up, simply connect a USB-C cable to the MacBook. USB-C is the next-generation of PC connectivity, and allows you to connect monitors, external storage, peripherals, and more.

      macOS Mojave

      The Mac Pro runs on Apple's intuitive macOS Mojave operating system. Simple to navigate yet capable of professional-level computing, it provides an expressive platform for you to work and play the way you want. iCloud is integrated into every aspect of macOS Mojave, so you can share documents between all your Apple products and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with automatic backup.

      There are over 200 new features and updates compared to the previous generation OS, including improved software and device integration, as well as new apps and enhancements for users with multiple displays.

      If you find any of the UK’s 50 top retailers, including Amazon.co.uk (but not Amazon Marketplace), AO.com, Argos, Asda, John Lewis or Tesco has the same item at a cheaper price, we’ll match it. Even if their price includes an offer-code discount, and even up to 7 days after you bought from us.

      How to request a price match

      Delivering your online order

      Get this delivered when it suits you

      We’ll show you your current delivery options for this item in checkout. Subject to the time you order, and where you want delivery, these options will include:

      • FREE standard delivery in 3-5 working days
      • Next day delivery or any following day between 8am & 5pm (£4.00)
      • Delivery in a timeslot of your choice next day or any following day (£10.00)
      Please note: if we’re out of stock of an item but getting more in, we indicate – on listings pages and the product page – how soon we can dispatch for delivery to you. In this case, please go ahead and order, and we’ll contact you later to confirm an exact delivery date.

      Availability Checker

      How and when can you get hold of your selections? Finding out should be quick and easy, so with just a few clicks our Availability Checker shows you:

      • Delivery dates, time-slots and prices
      • Local stores with stock you can collect from now
      • Local stores you can get items sent to for you to collect later
      To use our Availability Checker, simply:

      1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
      2. Click on the magnifying glass
      3. Review the delivery and collection options local to you – just click on any one to add it to your basket

      Stock updates

      Find something you want but it’s not in stock? On the item’s product page, simply click on ‘Email me when back in stock’, and let us have your email address. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s available again.

      Returns and refunds

      Whether an item you’ve bought is faulty or damaged, or you’ve changed your mind, it’s easy to get a refund.

      Items you haven’t opened
      Within 21 days of receiving an item you paid for online, on the phone, or in store you can return it for a full refund – provided your purchase is still in its original and unopened packaging. This promise is in addition to your statutory rights.

      Items you’ve opened
      Within 14 days of receiving an item you paid for online or on the phone, you can return it, even if you’ve opened it. To receive a refund, you must:

      • Let us know you plan to return the item within 14 days of delivery/collection
      • Physically return it within a further 14 days.
      The item must be returned in ‘as new condition’ – not used or installed, and in its original packaging. More on returns and refunds.

      Order online and collect in store

      Sometimes you’ll want something even quicker than we can deliver. Or you can’t be in when our van or courier would arrive. That’s why we offer you the option to order online and collect in store.
      Subject to what you’re ordering and where you want to collect from, you can:

      Reserve & Collect – reserve online for free and collect at a local store as soon as you like. Once reserved, your item’s held till closing time the next day, to be paid for when you collect.

      Pay & Collect – pay online, and have the item sent, for free, from our warehouse to a local store for you to collect. Starting on the date the item arrives in store – which you choose in checkout – you have 28 days to collect it.

      Your fastest way to order online for collection is to use our ‘Availability Checker’ feature:

      1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
      2. Click on the magnifying glass
      3. Review the collection options local to you – just click on any one to add it to your basket

      Let's take care of it

      For more peace of mind, add a Support Plan – if this laptop suffers a fault or mishap, all costs to put it right are on us.
