Buying through business - Looking for advice and tips


I am looking to buy a MacBook Pro for business, so I have been sniffing around on the Apple Business page but I'm not getting enough information from it, and before I ring I though i'de ask a few questions on here.

Someone has told me that they bought their macbook pro through business and only paid 600 for it, and said he got 40% off, this is what I do not understand, I know that I get 20% VAT back but where the hell has the other 20% come from?

Also, I noticed Apple do financing, which was something around 42 a month over a 24month period. But is there any little catches to that? I'm presuming that it is 0% APR, is there any deposit that needs to be placed before you start it?

I would appreciate any help on this as could do with a MacBook Pro but cheaper the better as times are hard I'm sure you all know.

Thanks in advance, appreciate any tips and pointers.

Check out the "special deals" on the main store page. They sell refurb units with as-new warranties. The units are essentially like new. Deals vary by the hour.
