Comet now 30% off on Macs

Just picked up a factory sealed 8GB/256GB MacBook Pro Retina from my local store with over 500 off! Very happy.

There are some bargains to have...

Dodgy place, even worse in Guildford where I reside (even though that has now shut down)

West byfleet closed the other day.

Not much left sadly.

Good deal for the few that could get them. They haven't had any macs in our comet for weeks tho.

I recommend buying Apple Care, because buying at Comet means you can forget about your statutory rights (you still have one year manufacturer's warranty). Which means it still is a bargain.
