    Normal Price with applecare £2,278.01

    Discount Price with applecare £1,758.75

    I wasn't offered applecare for £60 when i first purchased my 15" macbook pro even though i ordered a few days after they changed there policy so when my mbp turned out faulty they gave me a £60 'good will gesture' and they let me order the 17" instead!

    gwann apple!:D

    Wow, grats! That's quite some saving for your troubles!

    I'm pretty sure if I could buy a 17" for £1,758.75 right now I would do!

    I just had a look in the UK HE store. Strangely enough, if you choose the 100GB 7200rpm hard drive option the price goes up although it really shouldn't. It only goes up by 95p though!! Haha! :rolleyes:

    That's about half a pint down at our SU bar! Thieving Apple b******s!!

    If that bug's on your site too then I see you got the 7200rpm option. Good move!! :D
