    Awesome, thanks heaps! My 5 year old Air is on the brink so I think I'm gonna pre-emtively replace it with a 13 inch Pro

      on the brink

      Of being thrown out? Or on the blink?

      Out of curiousity, what is wrong with it?

      •  

        Of extinction. Generally running a lot slower than it used to and the touchpad is playing silly buggers

          put in a new ssd and replace the touchpad

        • +7 votes

          @steff: I wouldn't be confident doing that myself unfortunately so the cost of those repairs probably isn't worth it to me when other issues could come up down the track

        • +7 votes

          @Pulseidon: Trackpad and SSD replacements are very easy to do, there are many tutorials online on how to do this.

          Also get iStat Pro from the app store and check your battery life, battery may also needs to get replaced if its getting old. This is also easy to replace.

          Apple is still providing support for the MBA 2011, I would suggest keeping it until its end of life.

        •  

          @mangolassi: How do you mean still providing support? Mine is out of warranty so I'd have to pay for that support anyways.

          Yeah the battery life hasn't been great of late either. I really appreciate your advice but for me personally the cost of components/tools and my lack of experience with this sort of thing together with the fact that some other issue may arise in the future mean that, personally, I think a replacement is the better option

        •  

          @Pulseidon: I mean Apple are still providing software support for it.

          That is fair enough if you don't feel competent to do it, but its something to consider especially if you want to get a bit more resell value out of it.

          @Pulseidon:

          I guess you did get 5 years out of it and you’ll probably get something back for it on eBay/Gumtree.

        •  

          @Stix: Yeah that's basically my reasoning. I might get the Pro then have a crack at fixing the Air's trackpad and see what I can get for it on Gumtree.

        •  

          @mangolassi: Good point. I might get the Pro then have a crack at fixing the Air's trackpad and see what I can get for it on Gumtree. I really appreciate your suggestions.

        •  

          @Pulseidon:

          Really depends on whether the track pad is soldered as one unit.
          My sisters macbook albeit pro her track pad wasn't working and they said they have to replace the keyboard and battery as well since it was one unit!! Repairs would have been 600 bucks but luckily she had apple care so it was free.

        •  

          @KBZ: Yeah I wouldn't be down for soldering haha. I might take it into the Genius Bar and see how much they reckon to fix it

        •  

          Have you tried replacing battery.

        •  

          @GS83:
          I reckon replacing the battery would prob fix the trackpad issue- I've had this happen with my other Macs.

    The two more expensive iMacs are horrendous 'value'. The cheapest one is ok, considering it's an Apple product.

    •  

      Some people like iMacs. The Pros are very nice machines.

      However, paying $1300 for the MacBook Air with its crappy 1440 by 900 TFT screen is hard to justify.

      • +2 votes

        I’ve been using the 2013 Model of the MacBook Air and its a tank. Yes the screen is terrible but the battery life and the overall work you can do with the device is great.

        •  

          i should really be at least 1080p by now! its 2018.

        • +1 vote

          I think the one thing people misunderstand about the Macbook Air is it's utility - it's more the Toyota Carolla of computers. It's not as cheap as some of its Japanese competitors, it's not the fastest or the most impressively designed, but it offers a good blend of all the above with a screen that normal people don't notice and tank-like reliability.

          They really are a great computer when you just want a computer. Not a gaming rig. Not a photo/video workstation. Not a 3D graphics rig. Just an all round computer that will run for the next 5 years and not cause many issues.

    Is a 2016 Macbook better than the latest Macbook Air?

    •  

      No, if you are after performance Macbook Air is better. I have a Macbook 2016 and the system crashes at least once or twice a month and have had the keys get stuck a couple times due to the thinness of the keyboard. Had to take it into Apple for repair twice. I would suggest at least going with Macbook Pro

      • +1 vote

        MacBook Pro 2016 keyboard sucks too. Going in to Apple soon to ask them to fix the loud pile of shit that is the keyboard. Heard the 2017 is better.

        • +1 vote

          I’ve just negotiated with Apple to replace my 2015 MacBook due to having the keyboard replaced twice - with it needing to be replaced again. Keys get stuck very easily. Apparently 2nd gen is better - guess we’ll see!

        • +1 vote

          @whytd: I went in today, the guy said something like "if it was a common problem Apple would have a quality program for it". No, Apple are reluctant to throw millions of dollars when a small few complain about an issue that affects everyone. I told him there is one page on MacRumours with 60+ pages complaining about the issue. His response: "if you search for anything on the internet you'll find it". FML, maybe Apple just (profanity) up, it wouldn't be the first time, nor the last. I can't even use the damn thing in lectures because it sounds like I'm clicking a pen and just taking the piss.

          If their fix doesn't satisfy me, I'm just going to come back. How did you end up with an upgrade? From my experience, some Apple employees either side with the company (i.e. Apple can do no wrong) and others are reasonable. Previously had an iPhone 5s that was pulling like 3 hours of battery and was a week old. One guy was just like, well the diagnostic says it's fine, despite it dropping 10% during that 20 minute time frame. Came in a week later and this new guy had no qualms about getting it fixed.

      •  

        We have 2x Macbooks (2016) and 2x Macbook Pros (2013) - we haven't run into issues with the Macbooks.

        Actually, the Macbooks get more airtime than the Pros as they are just so light and convenient, the Pros only get whipped out now when I actually need the grunt for photo/video editing.

        I think the keyboard took a little bit to get used to though.

        •  

          The 2016 keyboards have pretty well known clicking issues, mostly affecting the top layer of keys (closest to the Touchbar). This issue only really presents itself when the machine is hot as the keys begin to alter under the temperature.

    •  

      Don’t get the MBP, crap Keyboard, always overheats for me in simple tasks. The trackpad even got jammed into the device and I couldn’t even click!!! I got the 2017 Version and I had to return it but honestly I think I was given a 2016 Version (did not have high Sierra installed, only Sierra).

      I’m now using an old MacBook Air and it’s great, the screen is it’s only downside but the battery life and performance is great. Nice trackpad (better than the mbp) good key travel on the keyboard.

      If you like the design of the 2016/17 mbp and don’t want to get it maybe consider MacBook 12”. Has the keyboard the same (I think only gen1 butterfly keys) a quiet trackpad and the retina screen. It only has a core m3 though but it could get simple tasks done .

      •  

        You can tell if the MBP 2016/2017 is different by looking at the keyboard (if it's off, System Information should suffice if it's on). The 2017 keyboard has a glyph on the option and control buttons.

        •  

          It said it was the 2017 MBP, on the box and in the system info. When I searched up all the problems with the pro they were happening on the 2016 model.

          My dad got a 2017 MBP and it came with high Sierra installed. Mine came with Sierra installed.

          Anyways, I’m using my air now and I’m happy. It’s a great device

    looks like $50 off iPad Pro's too…. nothing on the cheaper iPads though.

    Damn no iPhones.

    Anyone know an eBay store that sells iPhones that has GST on the invoice (for TRS purposes)?

    Anyone knows is GST included if buying eBay store as want TRS?

    Bought one last day from Myer, yet to pick it up. Can they do price match with their ebay price :(

  • +1 vote

    Forgive me for being naive but if I was to buy a MBP and had an issue with it, can I take it to an Apple store if it needed to be fixed under warranty or would it have to go back to Myer?

    •  

      Go to Apple

    • +1 vote

      Why not? You only take it directly to Apple Store, Myer will ask you going Apple Store as well.

    •  

      Not sure if it's the sort of thing you would be after but you can also buy an AppleCare Protection plan separately from Apple that extends your warranty out to three years

    • +1 vote

      The best option is book an appointment with a Genius and take your sales receipt with you. If they can fix it on the spot you'll be all set, if it requires work they can process it there. I've done that with Apple products bought elsewhere and they've never had an issue as long as I could show proof-of-purchase.

    • +1 vote

      Mickel07 - yes you can just take it to and Apple store. The only time an Apple store will not assist you with any Apple product, regardless of where you purchased it, is if if the product was purchased overseas or is an overseas model (ie: If you purchased it from Kogan, or any other seller who sells grey imports, or if you physically purchased it in another country). Your rights to refund, exchange & repair etc are void in Australia if the product in question was not purchased in AU or is not AU stock at all.

  •  

    Cheaper to buy discounted gift card and buy in store. You get Myer One as well.

    •  

      MyerOne is equal to 1% extra but only for spending in Myer

    • +3 votes

      These are the 2017 models. In terms of Air vs Pro… The Air is obviously cheaper. The Pro has a bit better screen, speakers and performance as well as a different keyboard and ports. In terms of size and weight the difference between the 13 inch versions of both is pretty negligible. I think the Pro might even have the smaller surface area because the bezel around its screen is smaller (although it is slightly thicker).

      Edit: I'd recommend the 13 inch Pro without the Touch Bar. The Touch Bar is a pretty pointless gimmick, just another thing that can break. The row of function keys is MUCH more useful.

    • +3 votes

      The Macbook Air hasnt had a real update in years. Go for the 13 pro, its basically the same size anyway and not effectively end of life.

      get the 13" pro. Air is way underpowered.

    Just a question, why can't Myer gift cards be used on the ebay store? It is a Myer product.

  •  

    Thanks, nice find. My 7 year old MBP recently died again (I've fixed it a few times, thanks iFixit). I think it was the logic board this time so I can't be bothered with it anymore. Knocking $500 off a new one is awesome so I've finally taken the plunge. :)

    •  

      Proper OzB approach b4 spending ANY money: stick the blown logic board in the oven on 200ºc for 5 mins. All the solder joints liquify a fraction, sometimes enough to repair the dodgy connection yours may currently have. Reassemble FTW. Give Apple the bird.

  •  

    Might be the best prices at this point in time, I'm waiting on the 13inch touch bar to get back down to $2k. Waiting….

    …and the professionals should get more discount on top via CR and ebay gc ;)

    •  

      That's what I'll be doing… Max of 8 GC + PICK5 code?

      •  

        Can you explain more about where you got the discounted gc?

        •  

          You need to buy the ebay GC with your WISH GC which is 5% off when you use cashrewards. Pay for the ebay GCs cards at the self service checkouts in Woolies.

        •  

          @sitdowndisco:

          Can you use 8 with this deal?

          As per ebay guidelines even fewer if using a coupon:
          No more than a total of $2000 in Gift Cards may be redeemed per day, and no more than a total of $5000 in Gift Cards may be redeemed per calendar month. Further, you may only redeem a maximum of eight Gift Cards in any single transaction (and fewer if you are redeeming Gift Cards in combination with other redemption codes, such as coupons or vouchers).

        •  

          @CrazyJJ: Yeah not sure. I think it's supposed to be 7 GC + code, but others have had success with 8. And the GCs are in $100 denominations I think.

        •  

          @CrazyJJ: anyone tried using those $100 gift cards to buy $200 egift cards straight off ebay, to make it $1600?

  • -2 votes

    I need to cancel my order which was placed using gift cards. I was told that they will issue me the e gift card as refund which can be used to place new order.

    Anyone know how much time will it needed to get the e gift card from myers.
