Figured this deserved it's own post as it appears to be the best price going at the mo. Just ordered one myself, this code only lasts for 24 hours so be quick!

These are the new 2.4ghz Aluminium iMacs, retailing at £1149 on the Apple site.

Don't forget 3% Quidco too! Which tracks at £24.98, making the 24" iMac £979 delivered!

Nice one dogvilledan.
just got the 20 inch for £850 delivered. didn't know they sold Apple computers at Dixons so this one would have passed me by. remember Quidco @ 3% too

Yeah, just checked and Quidco has tracked at £24.98, making the iMac about £979 delivered! bargain!

also discovered that you can get 4gb of ram for iMacs from Crucial.com for £115 (and 7% Quidco). Ordered that too!

Great deal voted hot :thumbsup:

Got one of these myself and its superb

great deal. but some of the new imacs are having video problems

Not for me as the FE discount I get from Apple outweighs the discount (Especially with the 'free' iPod) but voted hot as for the average Joe public this is a bargain!

Is the FE discount better than the HE discount?

This brings the price down the the same as the HE discount! Although if you buy direct from Apple through the HE site you also get 3 years parts and labour included!

I was going to post the crucial deal seperatly as I order that to go with my imac as well though I decided just to get an additional 2GB for £57 (less 7% quidco) giving me a total of 3GB which will tide me over till I have a little more spare cash and then I can upgrade to the 4GB option!

This is an excellent deal on an excellent computer! Sepcially if Leopard is included (if not you can upgrade for £5.95)

Around the 11% mark

Ok, I know if you have to ask you probably shouldn't have it, what are FE and HE discounts? Guess is Further/Higher Education.....???

It's a bit early for fireworks isn't it ? ;-)

Go to an Apple store and have a long play with an iMac/OS X. I'm guessing you're already familiar with Windows....

Do me a favour! PCs are faeces.

what is the exact details.
some one said the difference between fe and he is 11%.

FE discount (Students and Staff at Further Education places) : 11% discount

HE discount (University Higher Education) : 15% discount

Plus discounts on AppleCare etc

Just call up the Apple sales line and say you're at Uni, then they'll give you tyhe 14.1%/15% discount, no questions asked.

I use an iMac at work, against my will I might add, and always look forward to coming home and tinkering away on my Vostro :giggle:

There are also links to the HE site on the internet (as you are meant to be on your Uni's network to access it). That's how I bought mine earlier in the year (I'm at uni but wanted the convenience of buying it from home).

thanks,

just wondering which i would get if using colleges computer i am studying a HND higher education but at a college which is further education.

i could ring and get HE discount but loss the 23 off and quidco from internet sale.

the education discount is only 6% on macs as far as i remember. This model comes out at £1079 which isn't bad but buy today from dixons otherwise!

I thought Macs would take normal ram for PC?

im sure they can only recognise 3gb though????

2 levels of education pricing for faculty and students. If you're Education/FE faculty/student you get a discount but if you're a Higher Education faculty/student you get a bigger discount and free 3 year applecare. Btw Open University students are eligible for HE deals To get the HE price you must either be on a University Network or phone the Apple Store 0800 039 1010 and tell them you're in HE or go to Apple Store and show proof that you're in HE.

24" iMac 2.4GHz

Education/FE price £1079 + back to school offer of £85 off any iPod (ends 30th Oct)

Higher Education price £999 (13% discount) plus 3 years applecare = £149 + back to school offer of £85 off any iPod (ends 30th Oct)

p.s. iMacs use the mobile Core Duos as they emit less heat and use less energy. They can take up to 4 GB memory. Check on Crucial Memory UK crucial.com/uk/ (highly recommended), 2GB ~£34, 4GB ~£115. crucial.com/uk/…%29

Terrific price though for non Education customers. I'm currently trying to decide on what size iMac I should go for and either an iPod Touch or iPod Nano Fatty. Got to be quick though only 3 days left for iPod offer.

Its not Applecare, it is a 3 year parts and labour warranty. But you can upgrade to the full Applecare (3 year parts and labour plus 3 year phone support) for under £50 which is well worth it even if just for the resale value.

I notice Dixons are now saying its out of stock. How cheap of them, provide 10% discount on everything and then don't want to give it to people.

I managed to get 14% discount, plus 3years applecare for £47, plus a iPod Touch with £85 cashback. That gave me the whole lot for only a few pounds more than the normal retail price of the iMac alone!

Good deal from apple and thanks to the forum for the info :-D
