great with Retina screen
£400 off Apple price, No wallet, bad wallet, stay where you are, we need you for the steam sales !
Good price and fantastic 5K iMac.
Screen Resolution: 5120 x 2880 pixels. I'm not sure what I would do with a 5k screen, but you could spend the best part of £1000 just on the screen.
No SSD? I'm guessing you can't upgrade it either? what a waste....
can upgrade the ram but disk is tricky as they are sealed. Has plenty of io and thunderbolt for external HD.

Might be a fusion drive inside it
No SSD orFusion according to the description. It is relatively easy to use an external drive though (thunderbolt connected preferably).
This is the price you'd pay for the 21" version, so has to be hot.
Old October 2014 model

We've got a few of these at work and they have a 5400rpm disk, so slooooow by todays standards. We found performance is OK for general stuff, but anything disk intensive causes headaches, where machines were logging off and on a lot (we had them on reception desks where staff rotate), they would often lock up completely and require a hard boot. The newer models with SSD's are a massive improvement.

Unfortunately, as noted above, replacing the disks is nigh on impossible as they are sealed units.

On a more positive note, they handle the update to El Capitan nicely!

Shame they got rid of the magnets.
Great price. The lack of Fusion drive is a shame, though I still find their performance appalling compared to a proper SSD. Using the latest model in the office but the 5K display didn't blow me away, however the difference becomes very stark if you go back to the older 1440p/1200p models.

must..........not.........buy.......
is there a troll in here? Oh no it's my shadow.

£1000 for this junk, way overpriced.
Damn, just about to buy one of these but really wanted to get the Fusion version, now what do I do!!

This is about the price for a decent 5k monitor on its own

as far as I'm aware, this isn't a review site. It's for hot deals which this undoubtably is.
For 1k you should at least get a i7 cpu inside, but because it's come with a 27'' 5k display i shut up (_;)

Fanny magnets?
Very tempting but can't live with the 1tb internal drive always wanted one with the 3tb internal drive they do.
So it says:

"Items listed as "New" come with 12 months Currys/PC World Outlet warranty"

If it is really new, then it would come with an Apple 12 month warranty. Quite frankly, a Currys or PC World warranty is worthless toilet paper.
Nice find - unfortunately I can't justify spending a grand on something I don't really need

Plus the £3k visa bills wont pay themselves off...
Does anyone know the difference between this one (MF885B/A) and the one listed on Currys site currently (MK462B/A) I think it is?

Need a new business/design system asap (as in the next week!) and was about to order from Apple Education for £1362 but this is much better in value.
Also what is the cpu model in these all it lists is 4th gen i5. I want to know exactly which 4th gen i5 for a benchmark score.

Why are apple users so defensive? It's because deep down they know they are being ripped off.

Managed to find it, these are May 2015 models, and Apple currently sell them refurbished for £1,309!!

I wonder if these Currys ones are refurbs???

Have one with fusion drive and it's awesome. But any computer without an ssd these days let alone one that costs over a grand is just a waste of time.
sold 4 in the past 1 hour! Impressed by the wealth of HotUkDealers!

That's kind of a false economy though. You can't use it like any other 4K or 5K monitor, and 5K monitors aren't particularly common other than in the Apple machines, so the prices are in general higher.

If you want a decent 4K monitor you can get one much, much cheaper - and larger! There is a difference between 4K and 5K of course, but probably not one that justifies the premium.

And if you are one of the people who can justify that premium, you're probably better off getting a standalone monitor rather than buying an Apple, because it just happens to have one built in.

It's like the difference between 1920 x 1080 and 1920 x 1200... the market has kind of standardised around 1920 x 1080. For most purposes, I prefer 1920 x 1200, but it's really not worth the premium that comes with buying something off the beaten path.

New Manufacturer Sealed
There is an intact manufacturer's seal, and the item is brand new and pristine.
Some product boxes are unsealed as supplied by the manufacturer, these are still brand new, pristine, and listed as "New".
Items listed as "New" come with 12 months Currys/PC World Outlet warranty.

The 462 is the upto date model with better graphics card (AMD M390 v 290) and the Intel 6th gen -5 rather then 4th gen.

You should better spend the time to read some background information, instead of typing the above "statement".
Fact - Apple screen is premium, way better than the "much, much cheaper - and larger" 4k screens you were talking about.

EDU version comes with 3 years warranty worth about 150 pounds alone.
folks, it's all gone now.
Was the 1tb fusion drive not the standard option? If so this should come with it (I think)

I have one of these with a 256gb ssd and m295x, bought it when it came out and paid much more than this! Top display and ideal for productivity
if you edit 4k video - the 5k makes a big difference (not just apple 5k). You can have the 4k image/video plus the tool bar for the editing all on screen
