Very have the Apple MacBook Pro range at very low prices currently - actually cheaper than the prices on the Apple store before any discount! Best deal seems to be the 13" (2.26GHz Core 2, 2GB/160GB) model for just £899 whilst the same model is £918 from Apple. Model Number MB990BA (Very catalogue number PR5121M).

Use code XX585 to get 15% off and take price down to £764.15 and also XX932 to buy now and pay in a years time. Also 8% Quidco available on the ex VAT amount which should be worth another £52.03 meaning total cost for a MacBook Pro is just £712.12.

Other ones available for good prices are:

13" (2.53GHz, 4GB/250GB) model for £1149. Model Number MB991BA (Very catalogue number PR5131N). Price after 15% off is £976.65 with £66.50 Quidco making it £910.15 versus £1174 on the Apple store.

15" model (2.53GHz, 4GB/250GB) for £1369. Model Number MC118BA (Very catalogue number PR5191N). Price after 15% off is £1163.65 with £79.23 Quidco making it £1084.42 versus £1328 on the Apple store.

Complete description of the cheapest 13" model:

MacBook runs Mac OS X, the operating system acclaimed for its ease of use
Macs are the most secure and virus-free personal computers available
unique and durable single aluminium unibody enclosure
advanced built-in battery lasts up to 7 hours

Intel 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo processor

One thing to bear in mind is that Quidco does not normally track automatically but I have never had a problem when I raise an enquiry and always get paid. I have also never had a code reclaimed or not honoured and I have been a Littlewoods/Very customer for about 10 years and never order without using a code!!!

LOL - spent about 45 minutes writing this deal up and in that time someone else has posted it already! Oh well... mine has more detailed info anyway!
#2
No - my mistake the other one is just a MacBook so my one is different and a much better deal - not a waste of my time after all... hopefully will start to get nice and hot around here!

unlikely I'm afraid.

Any shop direct deal that requires a code to be a 'hot deal' nearly always gets voted cold.

Additionally, Shop direct are an awful company to do business with. They take money from you as soon as you order, then if they can't deliver you have to chase them for a refund. They are renowned for asking for the value of vouchers back months after you made a purchase if they weren't sent specifically to you.

Bought one of these last year from the apple website to write my dissertation. What a mistake!

It took over 4 weeks to arrive, after being promised delivery within 3-4 days, and when it did i had to send it back. It had around 10 dead pixels on the screen. Furthermore the apple care guy at first said that didn't warrant a replacement- despite me paying over 800 quid including the extra cover. I had to lie by calling again and claiming it had over over 20 dead pixels before they would replace the machine.

Six weeks later my replacement arrived. I was in a rage when upon unboxing and testing i discovered the laptop wouldn't play any disks. There was a crunching noise as it tried, a bit like some one eating cornflakes in your ear.
I again called Apple and sent the laptop back- this time demanding a refund, which took three weeks.

So in total 13 weeks of Apple gaining interest on my money whilst I had no working product, many days wasted waiting in expecting delivery and no new laptop for my dissertation resulting in a lot of stress.

Apple machines do look nice but mechanically they are tosh. Overpriced and in my experience poorly built.
My Asus netbook is far better and only cost £250. Put on Ubuntu and its honestly a lot better to use than snow leopard.

Apple- Don't believe the hype!

How bizarre... that goes against every experience I've had with Apple.

I've had problems with their products in the past but they've dispatched replacements ridiculously fast without waiting for me to return the defective one first.

At one time I had two Macbooks waiting to be returned whilst using the functional third Macbook.

Do you attract bad luck? ;-)

Im just warning people that Apple are not perfect and in my experience very poor. I would write the same for any other company that gave such a bad service. :roll:

I have a MacBookPro, iMac and my wife has a MacBook.. Never had any problems.. However in my experience Apple support is way better than any other hardware supplier I have had to deal with.

Buy from an Apple store, if there is a problem then walk into the store and they will sort it or replace it.

I'm not sure how you can say the are poorly built, especially compared to a £250 plastic Arseus. And as for Ubuntu being better than Snow Leopard..... sorry that was me falling off my chair laughing so hard! :w00t:

I guess thats just personal preference!!

If Apples were as cheap as Onions then poor customer service would'nt be a problem ; simply dispose of your apple and nuy a new one :roll:....it's hard to comment on someone else's customer service experience....

Probably the best discount at the moment on a MBP, if you cant get the Higher Education discount which works out less and with 3 years Applecare. Shame that Very aren't still doing the 20% off discount codes.

I would have to say that Apple Customer Service is second to none.

Cant say I've ever heard of anyone having to wait 4 weeks for delivery - where do you live BrianAngus?

If you are buying an Apple Macbook or Macbook Pro you MUST get the Apple care cover. These are the most unreliable laptops, somehow Apple get by on the quality of the OS and the backup service. I have had the problem, colleagues have suffered having to return and start again, it's a real pain, It's worth a little look at the Amazon customer reviews.

iMacs and Mac Minis are, thankfully much better.
