Just be wary guys - this is a 2008 model!!
Something dodgy about the whole thing as well. They claim the 77% off compared to some random store, that sells all their other iMacs (including this one) for this ballpark price except the one that Wowcher links to.
At least 28% off retail price of a brand new 27 inch 5K imac (2017 version) from PC World - See Post For Full Details

No reduction in core performance at all. Safari may take a hit of 1.5-2.5% …No reduction in core performance at all. Safari may take a hit of 1.5-2.5% in performance, but I'm pretty sure that'll be fixed in the next major release of MacOS.



I would keep an eye on that statement, even Intel have finally admitted their fix causes a 2-14% slowdown in some processes (but doesnt say which ones), even on the latest ranges, which are supposed to be much less reliant on the duff coding.
Now, it may well be that the slow downs are in areas that the normal user will never notice; AWS are reporting a 30% increase in cpu usage after the fix, but say they have enough spare capacity to avoid slow downs for customers.

Programming language also seems to be an issue; there have been reports on some coding forums about various things, including Python slowdowns of 30+ %, with one guy reporting a database slowdown of 47%.

One other thing, Intel are now admitting the micro-code fix seems to have made some Intel cpus unstable; so another fix is being fettled as we speak.

PC World checkout with multipl gift cards are fine, no complaints from the cashier, but it would nice to just warn the people behind you that it's going to take a while and better to join other queues.

Morrisons checking out is also fine, as long as you are not in Cambourne branch. As some mentioned already in previous post, you need at least two Morrisons More cards to accumulate all points.

Also, I can confirm Morrisons own gift vouchers (like below) can be used to purchase third party gift cards without any problems. Only issue is those discounted gift vouchers (not for everyone, ask your employer if your company is enrolled in a perk scheme for those) can not be bought instantly, you have to wait for them to arrive by post.33054834-xkrVN.jpg

It seems Amazon's already withdrawan the record low price, I'll just mark this as expired, hope some of you had managed to get the bargin already. Or those who haven't done so, you can track Amazon's price and set a price drop alert from camelcamelcamel.com.

Happy weekend shopping guys.
This would work for any product from pc world. Not just the Mac. This is how I got of iPhone X lol. Good work mate though

Apple haters just don't get it

Clue at the top of the page "Power to the pro. Pros love iMac."

You get all these childish comments but this isn't aimed at the consumer market it's for working professionals.

Here's another overpriced product.

You can buy a phone with a camera built in for under £100, some idiotic professional photographers are spending upwards of £12,900 on a camera.

Tee hee.

So amusing.
Thanks, bought 2 for the kids (6&3 yrs.)
What a great deal. I’ll buy a few just to crush down the Xmas packaging in the bin
Apple have lost the plot.
The worst part of this is that the components are not bad, but it works out you are paying £8k for the main board, screen and chassis, oh, and the software.

CPU is £2k, RAM is £1.1K, VGA card would be £1k and the 4TB NVMe SSD £1.1k. Talk about Apple tax, shame none of it gets passed back to our government coffers.

It's likely due to the hatred toward Apple nowadays, the crowds are really starting to turn.
I think it's largely due to the fact that they make the largest profit per unit in the entire industry and refuse to budge on prices or pay a fair amount of tax, all whilst having the money to end world poverty, the corporation is seen as greedy.

What compounds this divide is that people that are still on the Apple bus are so passionate about the brand that they will argue all day long to defend it.

Anything Apple gets voted down nowadays due to the unpopularity of the corporation rather than the product itself.

Personally I don't think anything is that easy to upgrade in an iMac apart from RAM, and IMO you will reach the limits of a 1Tb HDD before your processor, unless you are doing Gaming or Video Editing/3d Animation etc. Yeah an external HDD is ok, but you have to wait for them to wake, I have a Thunderbolt 3 HDD and still it slows the system down.

Not correct, EU legislation would still apply (at least till we leave), so you have two years. The SOGA is an English extension to 7 years (Scotland is different again and only 6 from memory). If you use small claims court under SOGA then after the first year you have to show an inherent defect was present at the time of sale, under the EU 2 year warranty that’s not required. The other consideration is under SOGA an allowance for derived benefit is made. Exceptions for consumable/service items are excluded under both.

Either way if you choose to claim under the SOGA within two years, you can, but you’d be an idiot.

I wouldn't want to use a 21.5 inch screen no matter how good the rest of the system is as it's just too small for me.

I've done 20 years in IT including as a sysadmin for ISP's & Telco's. I've worked with Linux and Solaris mostly and have run Linux, Windows, BSD and Mac OS at home as my main systems over the years.

Mac's are not quite perfect but the hardware is better built than most and the OS is infinitely better than the alternatives.

I could complain about the price being higher for a similar spec but the fact is that I've been more productive since I've been a Mac user and haven't had to deal with even a fraction of the hardware and software issues I did when running Windows on other brands.

While technically true, the big hurdle for me (and likely a lot of others) is that those systems will run Windows*. They are also often of a much lesser build quality, cheap and plastic feeling and just not well thought out.

* I quite liked Windows 7, it's the best Microsoft have ever made. Windows 8 was terrible and Windows 10 is an abomination.

Absolute trash product, overpriced garbage lol



Spoken like a true Apple hater.

Show me a system which by your standards isn't "absolute trash" and which is the same spec or better and at the same or lower price?

If the answers yes, it's a deal, of the answer is no, it's not. Arguing about whether an equivalent Windows machine is better value is pointless, and would also be incredibly complex.Find an iMac 27 deal cheaper than this?



A very narrow perspective to be sure (and I would argue that it is you that is missing the point somewhat), so we'll just have to agree to disagree and let the hotness (or in this case notness) of this "deal" be decided by the great unwashed HUKD masses...
