Hi guys,
I want to buy a MacBook. Heard that Apple employees get a discount. How much discount they get? Is there any other way to get same or better discount

    I’ve also been thinking of buying the macbook, but the keyboard problem really makes this a bad time to pull the trigger. their most recently updated macbook air seems to have the best keyboard feeling but it’s the same underlying tech, so not sure if it’ll have the same problems. macrumors also say apple won’t update the laptops in september.

      I’ve replaced my new MacBook due to keyboard problems and the new one also has problems (different problem but still a keyboard problem)

    tap your network to see if any of their employer IT is selling used MBP 2015. that was the best build + retina.

      What I meant was I had thought in 2016 the only change was the Touch Bar not the horrific butterfly keys as well...maybe it’s just the color options since MBPs have more options now.

      2015 was the last year to have a good keyboard, good ventilation, a neat backlit Apple logo, the magnetic power adapter, and all the essential ports so you don’t have to carry a fanny pack full of dongles. Plus it has the new SSD tech and a decent CPU.

    Wife works for Apple they get a great discount but it’s employees only and they track that to prevent re-sale. You’d be surprised when I was at Disney they would fire employees on the spot for using the employee store discount to buy limited edition merch like the Mikey’s 90th plushes to flip on eBay.

      There's a 25% off personal discount that's one time only a year and then also a 15% off for friends and family that can be used up to 10 times a year. Overall they don't really care too much about what you do with your discount.

    Don't pay your own money for the current MacBook. The keyboard is terrible and the touchbar is useless.
