Gr.3 Parent New MacBook Pro Ordering

Apple has announced a new MacBook Pro on June 5, 2017 which is going to affect the Gr.3 Parent ordering.  Senco has informed us that the MacBook Pro Bundle order will be automatically upgraded to:
13-inch MacBook Pro (2.3GHz Processor, 256GB Storage, 8GB Memory)
 
If you have already ordered the Gr.4 MacBook bundle from Senco-Masslink, there will be a refund of HK$85 of cash from Senco for the balance between the old and new MacBook. The difference will be issued to you from Senco on August 11 at the MacBook Pick Up session.  If you have not ordered the MacBook for your child, please visit the Senco website as soon as possible to make an order.  
 
Please contact Senco by email (info@eduoffer.com) if you have any further questions.
