It’s not a minimum, when you actually tell them what laptop you are trading the price drops a lot !
I tried to trade in a 4 year old HP that was fully working. The minimum was £125 ! They offered me £14 .

Was that for laptops other than Macbooks? As i understood from online and asking in store. For Macbooks only, if laptop meets the criteria, it is minimum £125 as advertised in store and online.

From their website:
"Additional guaranteed trade in values only apply against purchases of Apple MacBook when you trade in a working product. Trade In value issued on a Curry PC World gift card. Only one Trade In Gift Card can be redeemed per transaction. Offer not available in conjunction with any other offer. Subject to availability."

Why would you EVER buy something expensive from Curry's? Their after sales service is appalling.

You missed the more important element of their Ts and Cs bizarrely. the crucial bit where they state the actual amount you recieve will vary dependant upon the device traded in:

For apple devices, you do not rely on Curry's after sale service so no matter where you buy from you can take it back to apple. In my last 10+ years experience, Apple customer support is second to none.

Didn't miss it, i believe that comment is applicable to trade in general and "guaranteed minimum" was specifically for MacBooks hence quoted that only.

Wrong. One year Apple warranty. Highly unlikely to fail in one year so you're left with Curry's support.

Curry's are offering same one year warranty anyway.

Why wouldn’t you just sell your MacBook separately? Even an older model is likely to get you more than £125

Yeah my point is, what happens when it fails on year 2 or 3? Because I know if you buy from Apple direct they will address the issue. Curry's? Not a chance.

Apple has never asked me where did I buy my device from. If its a fault that they can cover under consumer act, they will regardless of where it was bought from. If its a fault that you need to pay for, again regardless they will ask you to pay for it. As far as the device isn't black listed, I don't think there is any difference with where you buy a product from when it comes to Apple (IMO).

A warranty does not affect your statutory rights. Who you buy from is who you have a contract with and have statutory rights with, there is no statutory right direct with the manufacturer to put anything right if it goes wrong.

Hence using a half decent retailer who you don't have to serve court papers on to get something fixed 3 days outside of the 12 months

Wrong. Consumer Rights Act is with the retailer you buy from. I've purchased Apple products for over 10 years. First question Apple ask me when I state my statutory rights is what retailer I purchased from. They can try and ask you to pay for it but they haven't been successful with me yet and I've returned loads of items.
