"ALL-IN-ONE PC"

Made me chuckle.

Great price for a great bit of kit. I paid the same price last Christmas day when Dixons ran their 10% code, but got the 24" 2.4Ghz. Fingers crossed they do the same again this year as I want a new one ;)

Damn, if only i had a spare grand lying around

but i bought a macbook 2 months ago for £712, gotta love the H.E discount!
#4
Voted Hot, excellent price!

Excellent price for a truely quality piece of kit:thumbsup:

Que I'm a PC and this is my office fanboys:whistling:

You pay for what you get and this machine is the mutts nutts:thumbsup:

I was in an Apple store a week ago when they suggested a new iMac might be due at the start of 2009. This is a good price for this model, but you may want to wait.

Seems to be supported here:

new imac is scheduled for release in January and it should loose its chin below the screen lol
#8
Not only are new iMacs rumoured for January, but (finally!) new Mac Minis as well. The Mini would be the way to go for most people as you can use any display you want. (assuming the new Mini update finally means the Minis aren't crippled)

Hahaha. You could get 2 PCs of a similar spec for £1000.

Ergo you're paying £600 for an operating system.

I wouldn't say scheduled, but "expected", as much as you can expect rumours to be true that is :thumbsup:

Wait.
This is £999 for TWO POINT EIGHT GHz??!!
And you think this is a good deal? :w00t:
What a horrible screen - "Glossy"...

Terrible deal, voting cold and I would advise anyone not to buy a Mac if this is a "good" price for one.
#12
This price puts it at the same cost as education discount. Voted hot!

Tremtastic. The Mac is far more than an operating system. All the software you get with it is fantastic and worth £100's which you kinda buy when buying the computer. Maybe an option to minus certain packages from your order to make it cheaper would be worthwhile BUT a computer is nothing without the software that's on it... and boy do Apple make some cracking, intuative software.

The only other sources that I'm aware of to get the totally excellent HS-IPS TFT panel in the 24" iMac are Apple's new 24" Cinema Display (where it's also paired with LED backlighting) for £650 (I think it's that price) and the NEC 2490WUXI, and the only price a quick google turns up for THAT is £712.24 from a retailer in new york.

You might be able to get a PC with a 24" display for £500, but don't kid yourself into thinking it's a similar spec

Had my Macbook for ages, never had a system crash, worked perfectly and NEVER had to install virus software, boots up quicker as well.

Quality is to do with it, rather pay that than for a shabby build PC for £200-300 any day (if i had the money)

I guess you're a PC. Well us lot are Macs and this is a good price for a Mac.

You're not being asked to vote on the price compared to another product. You need to compare it to the price of the same product - which normally costs around £1,150 for this model.

So once again... a good price.
#21
Specs are always lower on Macs for a similarly priced PC, but you cant argue this thing isnt beautiful. I saw one in Currys the other day, looked great, was almost tempted until I saw the RRP. £999 is a better price than youll find anywhere esle for this if youre after one. Hot.

Apple is more expensive but if you need a reliable system that you can accurately write off over a number of years, i believe its a good deal. If your talking about tricks of confidence, think about how much money Microsoft make by selling an operating system they know is flawed, and one that will get slower and less reliable every day its used.

Voted Hot, bought mine 3 months ago with a PC world 10% staff discount - still cost me £1034.00

The Apple v PC argument will rage on forever. For what my 2 penneth is worth they both have their merits. If you are a gamer with space to spare then a PC is the obvious choice. If you don't game, need stability, have limited space and don't want to spend loads on extra applications then a Mac fits the bill.

I have been building and using PCs since 1992 and they served me reasonable well. Last year I jumped ship to an iMac, followed shortly after by an additional Macbook. There is no doubt that the Apple products are aesthetic and well built but I have also been impressed by the usability of the machines themselves. Once you've delved into the plethora of features such as 'automater' and the iLife suite you wonder how you managed without them. That said, I have not abandoned Microsoft in the process. My machines are 'boot camped' and I sidestep into Windows as and when I need to. Apple for now is not the complete solution.

The Apple and the PC both have there place and it is a personal choice with no right or wrong. Personally, I will be sticking with Apple for now. I have grown to like the stability, simplicity, boot up speed, aesthetics and the space on my desk. The PC offers better value for money in my opinion, however, personally I would rather pay the extra for an Apple.

Anyway, I digress, the point of this thread is to vote on the price (not the principle) and the fact remains that this is indeed an excellent deal and therefore it deserves a voting of hot. For what it's worth, I bought both my machines from the refurbished section of Apples website. They were considerably cheaper than the retail price and they were indistinguishable from new apart from arriving in a plain brown box.

Guys,

I need to clear the air here otherwise this silly discussion between Mac and PC can go on for ever.

Based on my own experience i always had a PC since i was a kid and that's about 25 years ago honestly i always loved it even they were all rubbish and painful to use but never mind they were brilliant. Can someone remember when he first used DOS or even even Windows 3.1? Microsoft gave the possibilities to people to program whatever they want, to develop whatever they had in mind and also to contribute in a sort of development scheme if you were a certified developer.

Back in the days we used to always hate Mac because they were expensive, not open source to develop our program [that's why there is no virus] and it wasn't easy to find compatible programs to use with. So since that Mac became for some reason the computers for "rich" people which means musicians, artists, movie producer and so on. In order to keep pleasing their customers Mac develop more in that direction. This is why when you are using Final Cut on a Mac it won't even cough for a minute BUT if you are using Windows Movie Maker on your PC it will throw up on you a blue screen or freeze on Vista.

Microsoft knowing that Apple made really well for the past years with their OS tried to do the same with Vista but unfortunately apart from copying their soft design and trying to make it crash less Microsoft did not succeed and only seems to attract now as customers gamers, newbies to the computer world, companies trying to pay cheaper computers for their employees, people with small budget thinking they are doing a good deal.

People buying Mac are still the same and they are not joined by people who are sick of taking sh1t from Microsoft [like me], people who want a computer that just do the job even if they have to pay a bit more for that, people who want something beautiful and really skilful. I have been using Mac for 2 years now and honestly i don't know how come i have been using computers for that long. It is the same with cars if you have no money! drive a banger. If you have a bit of cash! drive an Aston Martin... yeahh baby

Now PC users please leave us in our luxurious saloon and don't get jealous or do yourself a favour buy and try it yourself... Caution you might insult Microsoft afterwards.

Have a good day

Apple = Not giving your money to the money grabbing b******s at microsoft



those money grabbing b******s (or bill gates) have given billons to charity, however all steve jobs and family have done is support the american ****ed up government by giving them donations, and parking in disabled spaces.

Also the Mac's we use at work are complete waste of space in a network environment they consistently give file permission errors and the latest version of the os is the worst ever, id rather go back to os9 than use all the **** interface's that take longer to use and browse.

However the screens are very nice... and it is a good price but you are just paying for the name.

Yeah money grabbing, so have lots of other companies still makes them money grabbers, im all for the charity stuff.
We pay like over £20000 a year for Microsoft licenses or more even, thats just the place i work and its a small organisation. Think about others using microsoft.

Talking of file permissions, ever tried using Vista, you cant do anything even after turning off UAC.
#29
I just wish they had better specs, then I'd jump ship like a shot, I love the look of Apple stuff, the design is beautiful, but I just cant bring myself to pay so much more for the same spec as a PC. The Apple my best friend has does crash sometimes, so I do think its a bit of a myth that theyre flawless. Come on Steve, stick a bit more RAM and a faster CPU in these babies, or drop the price ;)
#30
I guess it's true what the Appleites are saying about Macs holding their value - by my reckoning, there's not a single part of this machine less than two years old, and the fact that there's still suckers who'll pay a grand for it reallyd oes say something about a Mac's longevity.

You aren't paying for the hardware, it's the vastly superior software that is more than worth a small premium.
#32
im in an industry where i can use the action pack so we dont need to pay anything near that ;)

dont get me wrong i use macs every day (this is being typed on one) i just get annoyed by the blatant blind "preaching" that many mac fans do, both formats have there issues.

personally i prefer to use ubuntu :D
#33
These threads are all the same. Same old blah blah followed by the linux geek...
#34
For a Mac, it's an excellent price. For a similar Windows box, it's a poor price. Each to there own.

You can get a 2.0D Ford for £9K, or a 2.0D Volvo for £16K. It's all down to personal taste and affordability. If I could afford an Aston, I would probably get one, but I can't. I get the best suited for my needs with the money I have available.


And just to clarify...

I'm a PC, but mine is branded Apple.....

Back to the deal........

The link below is the font of knowledge on mac issues that somebody posted before on a hukd mac thread. They commented that they always looked at it before purchasing any apple hardware and thought that it was worthy of a repost:

http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/

For the iMac it states: Recommendation: Buy only if you need it - Approaching the end of a cycle. Therefore, it's got to be a cheap to make you go for it, but £1k isn't enough to swing it for an Apple user like me!

Yep that is the reason why its cheaper though, when the new ones are released they will be more expensive :S

Good price, anyone saying they can get a pc cheaper, I'd like to see an all in one pc of the same spec for less money of equal quality. Last time i checked the only thing close was Sony's all in one and that wasn't nearly as good.

So Microsoft is ripping everyone off and Apple isn't ? :roll:
I'm no fan of any oerating system but this debate really is futile.
Obviously if you're not interested in gaming or business then Apples are great and they look lovely on the dressing table. (Post-edit: Sorry, that was a bit unneccesary and gratuitous, but I'll leave it in anyway)
If you want to customise or have a vast array of ready software to do anything you want then a PC is ideal. The trouble is that you have to be extremely careful because virus writers will target the casual downloaders. As with any OS you need to be careful, and so many people aren't. Macs aren't immune; it's just that virus writers don't target them because there is so little market share. Mac users tend to be more affluent therefore less likely to download dodgy or stolen software and will stick to Apple software and that from known vendors.
For serious server tasks then other platforms are essential, Win Server, Solaris, AIX, HP, i5/OS, z/OS, even Linux for niche applications. My profession is pre-sales consultant for an integration software vendor selling to major companies for all the platforms above and more. In the last 10 years I can say that 95% of customers (including most retail banks, consumer goods manufacturers, telecoms and retail you would have heard of) use some form of Windows in their server environment. Never once have I been asked if we support Macs. Large financial institutions would not stake their business on an inherently unstable or insecure operating system. If you know what you're doing then Windows is every bit as secure and reliable as a Mac, possibly more so.
Now I'm not saying Macs are bad, just that they are suited to a certain niche home market and if you are part of that market then it's a great choice and shouldn't be knocked. Similarly Mac users shouldn't knock Windows users for their choice and not everyone can afford a Mac or its expensive software. Whichever is chosen is usually the correct one based on that person's use and financial circumstance. Horses for courses.
Just my £0.02 worth.
