The deal: Apple MacBook Pro 15in - 10% off all-rounder with premium all-metal exterior - $1,889.10
For $1,889.10 the Apple MacBook Pro 15in (MD318LL/A) is a good-value all-rounder that has plenty of style and substance. The all-metal exterior is pretty much the gold standard for notebook finishes, and the internal specs give it the horsepower needed to run pretty much anything you could throw at it. It’s also worth noting that the MacBook Pro has a Thunderbolt port, a port that allows for faster data transfer speeds than USB 3.0 for compatible devices.

See a summary of the specs below.
The MacBook has a 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2675QM (2.2GHz), a high-end processor that can fluidly run intensive software and productivity applications. It can burst up to 3.1GHz using Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology if a particularly demanding program is running.
It has a dedicated graphics card called the AMD Radeon HD 6750M. It’s one of the fastest mid-range AMD cards, and most modern games will run smoothly at high settings.
4GB of RAM is enough to run several programs at once smoothly. This will be sufficient for moderately intensive image and video editing tasks as well.
A 500GB hard disk drive is about average in size. It’s big enough for plenty of documents, but movies and the like will fill it sooner rather than later.
It has a 15.4in (1,440 x 900 resolution) gloss screen. This is an above average resolution for the screen size.
The MacBook has average portability, because it weighs 2.54kg and is 24.9mm thick. It'll be straightforward to carry around.
The MacBook has a Thunderbolt port, a new standard developed by Intel that allows for exceptionally high data transfer speeds.
