I wonder how long Apple can keep on cashing in on their brand name to keep their prices so high?

Slightly biased - have you ever used a Mac? If you have, you would see why they are industry standard for all Creative partnerships.. Yes, they're more expensive, but once you've got one, even if you don't like it, the prices fall so slowly that you won't lose much..
#3

Yes. The exact same..
#4
If anyone has a Costco membership they're stocking this model - can't recall exact price but was nearer £820 inc vat.
#5
Once you go Mac, you won't go back.

Like maxruddock12 says, there is a reason that they are industry standard.

So your claim "RRP is £999 and is what everywhere else is charging" is a bit misleading!

I'm sorry, 1 other company is charging the same.. bar them, the RRP is £999 which is what all bar 1 company is charging

Limited industries have macs as a standard, far more industries use PC's running windows

I think you'll find most film, radio, web design and really most-media related companies within industry use MACs not only for the OSX but for the fact that OSX can run Windows via Parrallels and Boot Camp which on a Windows machine is very limited..

Apple key + click = right click (usually) :)

If you have a Apple Magic Mouse then you click the right hand side of the mouse. Quite simple really.

you can "enable secondary click" in system settings if you really need it... u can then right click as normal!

i have the prev model... worth the extra for sheer quality. will never go back now.
don't comment unless you have or have used one for a while!

As long as people and business keep buying them which obviously many people do.

Life long Windows user on this very Mac model, never going back!

[quote=peterjmay]you cant right click on macs!! that really gets my goat!!![/quote

You have been able to right click for years - show's you've never used a mac!
Apple mice have supported different clicks for years, as have trackpads - two finger tap ftw!
#17
Go with Dixons 3% Quidco...

Just ordered the 15 inch £1,352 and got 3% quidco.

Im a Windows, Linux and OSX user, I dont discriminate!

Voted hot - great price and right click on the touch pad is two fingers on the pad and a click - simples

Same here, I've got a couple of macs (ones for sale if anyones interested) and a few machines running both windows & linux, I don't understand why people always go on about which is better, just get both.

How much is a Apple mouse with a right mouse button?
I guess its cordless so would be about £10 if for a PC


Pretty much any mouse will work with a Mac, even a £5 microsoft mouse. If you want to use the touchpad it's pretty easy to two finger tap the trackpad for a right click.
#21
I have got the mac in this advert and is my first apple product. LOVE IT. Styling is amazng, os is brilliant and after a few weeks getting used to it I would never go back to a standard PC. When this one gets a bit long in the tooth in 2- years I know I can easily sell it on and get the new model\

Spot on. I work for The Press Association and it's about 50/50 in our office (Macs to PCs). I would like a Mac, but the price tag does put me off for what I would use it for!

How does paying £26 more here than dixons make it a great price?
I


Quidco isn't confirmed or guaranteed so this is as good for me, also i didnt notice the dixons link

I would love a Mac....however they need to reduce the cost!!!

50/50 Macs to PCs?
Tell me, what is it about a mac that doesn't make it a Personal Computer?
Sounds to me like you meant half of the computers run Mac OSX and the other half run Windows.

So what you saying is Macs are mostly limited to media related industries
Or to put it another way you were totally agreeing with me (insert old rolling eyes smiley here)


Does it matter what type of company/person uses a mac, its up to the user if they want one and there are enough people out there which is why they are produced!

As for this deal, it's ok but can be bettered so I personally would not vote hot.

Yeah that. I refrase, 50% run Mac OSX and the other 50% run Windows (of some form). But then some of the Macs are dual running windows... So will that increase the ratio or not? But then again I wouldn't be able to comment on how many do that.
#29
I really don't get why there are so many unuseful comments on here..
There is really only one question, CAN YOU FIND IT ANYWHERE CHEAPER? yes Dixons match it, but had that been posted? No.

This is why i like arguing with Apple owners because they keep giving me wrong facts LOLComet online price £970.75http://www.comet.co.uk/shopcomet/product/633275/APPLE-MacBook-Pro-MC374B-ANot same price as amazon or currys but not £999 like you claim everyone else is chargingLet me guess you will now claim all but 2 companies are charging £999 LOL

Mate, I work 6 days a week, unlike you, I do not have time to constantly surf the net to try and 'do one' over on people. All I was trying to do was to help other buyers, who want to purchase a Macbook to show them the cheapest price that I currently know of, and the cheapest price on the HUKD site. It's people like you who turn comments into battles with your negativity who should be banned from HUKD - I didn't have to post this page, but in the knowledge that I might give someone else a better deal on buying a Macbook, spurred me on to do so. If i would've known that there would be people like you, picking out holes (i.e. saying Comet do it for £970 - is that at all useful?) then I don't think I would have bothered. And frankly, I no longer see why I bothered.

maxruddock12 - Chill out - don't let it get to you. ALL Mac threads bring at least two knobs out of the woodwork... unfortunately it's the school holidays so your deal has also picked up pedants and the ill-informed. ;)
#32
Would *never* go back to using clunky pc's after a few months with my new Mac. No daily virus updates, no crashing, virus scans run in the background - what's not to like about Macs? Will never return to neolithic pc's.

Why insult OP and yourself, while the name fits theres no need to be so childish


Ouch... you got me!!! Very clever! :{

It's true though. Every single deal for a Mac gets a busload of pontificating Windows users banging on about price or other ill informed nonsense (e.g. "you can't right-click on a Mac"). Curious that this doesn't happen in PC threads... (oops, sorry I can't use PC as a catch-all for computers running WIndows anymore can I?) ... you don't see Mac users wading in time and time again bleating about the advantages of their choice of OS/hardware... why is that?

And why are you hounding the OP?

Yes why bother lying to everyone by insisting this is the only place selling this item below the rrp of £999?
And tbh it's people like you who post fake best prices who should be banned for costing people extra money, not people like me who point out your deal is £26 from being the best so saving people money, maybe someone should start medium warm deals where you can post your deals in peace

You are not allowed to include QuidCo in the final price. Seriously mate, go back to school..

Not being funny, the Mac Not getting virus' thing is a bit of a con. try to ask if you can plug a USB stick into a Mac in the Apple Shop, you know what the answer will be.
Noelithic PCs? You do realise even the "media" applications that people seem to think are built for Mac now run considerably faster on Windows machines than they do on Macs.
Hell they look nice, I'm not doubting that, but anything thats put together using hot glue guns and costs ~£850 for a average specification laptop is a bit long in the tooth.

At the end of the day, you are paying for the name here whether you like it not, and no matter how you try to justify it, you will have spent more than you needed too. Each to their own though, they look nice, and if you buy into the ponce factor you'll be set. All you'll need is an Audi to fit the bill of a true mail chicken.

They are quality. End of. Down to £853.58 now.
