Does anyone know the cheapest way to buy a (genuine) Apple Macbook Air (and Pro) and get it in the UK?


CurvyGirl had one and also unfortunately had a water bottle in the same capacious bag. Unfortunately the latter leaked, doing the former no good. Yours truly would like to fix the situation.

Have you tried an Apple Store Genius Bar? by jump the ladder (4.00 / 1) #1 Fri Nov 20, 2015 at 08:16:22 AM EST
They occasionally replace broken Macs if you ask really, really nicely and it's recentish one. Definitely worth a try but no guarantee.

They observed it was water damaged which means they weren't going to respond to nice requests

Refurbished Mac off the Apple Website by jump the ladder (4.00 / 1) #3 Fri Nov 20, 2015 at 08:38:49 AM EST
Normally 10-15% cheaper. Also if she's a student you can get 10-15% discount via Apple on Macs.

Thanks: co-worker suggested same thing earlier... by anonimouse (2.00 / 0) #4 Fri Nov 20, 2015 at 08:58:23 AM EST
My current preference seems to be through Amazon, to be as risk free as possible. It seems to save me about £200 on a base model Mac Air. £850->£650

I don't have her student ID with me so I can't find the educational discounts offered, so I've asked her to look them up. Not sure if you can get a refurbished mac with a student discount too....
