If it's an iMac you’re after there will probably be a price reduction very soon, however if you wait too long you might miss out on the current offers. I waited until after WWDC and I am glad I did, as I’m sure you know the whole Macbook line was refreshed. This coupled with HE student discount, the iPod rebate, the printer rebate and the possibility of quidco is definitely the right time to buy any apple computer. You also get a free 3 year warranty through the HE student custom AppleCare scheme.

For your information -

The printer rebate ends 28/07/09
The ipod rebate ends 08/09/09

So Apple will probably introduce iPod and iMac changes after the back to school promo, but you never know and you would be guessing as to the exact date when that will be if at all.

If it's a big monitor you are looking for and wish to use OS X, have you thought about purchasing a Macbook and connecting it up to a 24" monitor - say a Dell for e.g.? This way it would be much cheaper for the same amount of specs in a "realistic environment" and you would have a portable computer as well.

I have the 24" imac and love it, glossy screen is a pain if you are using for work purposes though (graphic design etc)

I have a laptop , only reason i want one really is cause i like the look of them and to fit in with my modern home ....im not bothered about playing games on them or doing much else apart from using word etc and using the internet.

I know some think its expensive for what it is but yes i just want to pay for style if that makes me stupid then so be it ..lol

Cant seem to use Quidco if you get Education discount thats what quidco says on the site.
Thanks for the info btw:thumbsup:

I heard that they might reduce the price of the entry level models of macs (including the 20" iMac).

I have a 24" iMac which I bought about three weeks ago and I absolutely love it!!

Nope, Big macs only.

Hot deal. Yes there are rumours of a price drop, but probably not until the spec gets bumped which could be months away :thumbsup:

You forgot to say that you also get 13% off the mac and a really good discount on a printer awell.


Only if you're a uni student tho (in fact thats the only kind of student thats applicable to this offer I believe).

Dont know about free 3year applecare tho. Its significantly discounted (about 75% I believe) but not free.

Just going through the process of applying for my rebate at the moment. Be warned it doesn't happen automatically, and I don't think you even get a reminder about applying for it. Started the process myself through their website, it's quite lengthy and they say rebate should be received 4-6 weeks after your application is submitted. You have to fill in a claim form and then send it off with proof of purchase, serial numbers and codes from the product boxes etc.

No you do get a free 3 year warranty , i was told the one you pay for is a different service to the warranty and anyone who buys a imac etc through higher education will get the 3 years free , no added costs.

Would be better if they just gave a free Itouch and printer instead of messing around having to claim and wait weeks on end for it back.

Then i would jump at the offer , but once you add on printer costs and ipod cost it add up to quite a bit .

The specs are kinda of lame to what you could get from a PC but i guess most people going for this arnt after great specs , just a nice looking and better performing windows

Btw : how much do the Ipod go for on ebay and what GB one should i go for to make most profit on

It is upto you but my sincere advice would be to go for a pc for less than half price of a mac with better specs. With windows 7 aroudn the corner there realy is no longer any reason to get a mac. The issues with vista's resource hunger are gone. There are free programs available for any pc which allows it to do everything a mac interface can do.

The money you save going for a pc can be used to soup up your system in a year's time and that saves you a lot of cash as opposed to playing the 8 month game with apple's devices.

I have had 2 macs, two iphones, two ipod touches and 6 ipods in the past 5 years. So I am no pc fanboy. It's just that I am giving you my personal opinion as to what I think will save you money. At the end of the day you know what suits you best. Take care.:thumbsup:

I'm thinking very similarly to you at the moment. For me, Apple have had a better operating system for years now, which has allowed them to charge silly prices for their hardware.

Now that Windows 7 is on the horizon and has had a positive reaction so far, together with the global financial problems, Apple may have to become more competative with their prices.

It only took a week from sending off the form and receipts to receiving the rebate by cheque. I must say Apple customer service is really top notch. Can't fault them at all.

I don't understand why Windows 7 is going to change a lot. Most of the problems with Vista I've experienced have been solved with service packs and W7 to me just looks like a refresh with a few more features in it. I personally hope that the mac market share does not overtake Windows, as I think the mac community thrives when it is the 5-10%.

In regards to price drops, I'm predicting by September the current iMac and Mac Mini lineup will go down to the old 2008 prices, so from £949 to £799 for the 1st imac.

Yeah and a pc with a great processor, and nvidia gtx card, 4 gigs of ram, 500gb hard drive will go below £500. *note to other posters - stick with a pc*.

The hope for me with Windows 7 is that it'll be more OSX-like than Vista and XP. By that I mean that It'll be less glitchy, and quicker. OSX is a brilliant operating system for several reasons, but I'm not prepared to pay £200-£300 more for it with an Apple desktop/laptop, than the equivalent Windows machine.

And I don't think you have to worry about the mac market share overtaking Windows...

I'd rather have a mac than Windows pc, as you can install Windows on a mac anyway, but the cost is getting difficult to justify. The cost of Apple hardware has been increasing whilst the Windows equivalents have been decreasing.

The cost of Apple hardware has only increased in the UK in January. The prices of macs have been decreasing since 1984 when the first mac was released. I'm not worried that the mac market share will overtake Windows. I don't think it will ever go past 25% thank god! :-D

Ive tried several times to no avail even when ordering over £1000s of stuff they wont even throw in a case for the 13" mbp! `They claim they cant on their system because the HE discount is 'so' large - I believe them as 4 or 5 have all independently confirmed the same thing.
#26
If you want a case you can get one for $5.90 on Focal Price. Apple don't do deals. I have no complaints paying full price - just make sure you get all of your peripherals cheap! Thanks HUKD!

What cause you cant afford one they are a rip off??

People buying these are not after playing high spec games , they want style , good quailty and the rest.

Obviously they dont suit the poor hence the price , but if everyone had one & they were cheap , then i probably wouldnt want one :p

I use a mac because it makes work so much easier and faster to do and it makes it look better. I don't care much for the style as long as it is easy to use (eg the keyboards)

Thanks. Just ordered a macbook pro for my son. Was after a 250gb model, but they upgraded it to 320gb and knocked another 40 quid off in addition to the student discount. iPod rebate of £145 and additionally a free HP photosmart printer via a rebate too.

Hi,
I rang and said I wanted to order the macbook pro with 4gb ram and 250gb HD the price after the student discount came out at £1079 and the guy I spoke to said he could upgrade it to 320gb and the price would come down to £1045. Then I said how did the ipod rebate worked and he explained I had to buy it at £165 and I would get a rebate of £145 within 4 to six weeks. Then he said would I be interested in a printer at £59.97 on which I would get a rebate of £60. So I snapped it up. All told seems like an excellent deal.
Cheers
#35
So he just offered you a free upgrade without you even asking , you must of got lucky , i phoned and they said they are not allowed too and the student discount is the best deal they can do.

Maybe ill try and ring again
