    Geez I know the pound is down a bit

    But putting £500 on the Base MacPro UK Price today.

    I cant see the Apple store employees finding it an easy sell now! (if it ever was)

    So Now £2999 for the Base 4 Core.
    And £3899 for the Base 6 Core.

    Has to be a joke.

    Everything Apple is now very expensive in the uk (well as if it wasn't before). I realise the pounds value is responsible for this but still it would make me think twice about buying anything else.

    Buy from John Lewis... Base 4-Core is £2499 with 3-year guarantee. Fairplay to them for not putting the price up.

    The conversion rate excuse is BS. The components keep getting cheaper as they age and the profit margin keeps getting wider. Buy used.

    Agreed.

    ..but the used ones on eBay are not much cheaper than brand new, it seems.

    We have webuy.com selling six core D500 models for under £2000. Though I'm afraid that Apple's scam pricing is going to push up second hand pricing soon.

    I just bought a new Quad Core from Costco. Price inc VAT £1679. If your VAT registered then it's an even better steal!

    Computer Exchange sell them in great condition for less than that with two year warranty.

    https://uk.webuy.com/search/index.php?sortOn=sellprice_desc&stext=6+1&section=

    The prices listed were £200 less before Apple raised prices and they sold out quickly. So even used prices are going up. Apple has ****ed everyone.

    Wow, when I saw that thumbnail picture I thought Costco was selling Mac Pros in clamshell packaging.

    What’s really funny is that a refurb is now more money than a brand new one used to cost. That’s right, more.

    I couldn’t find that. Is it me?

    All models of Mac Pro are now out of stock at John Lewis with no option to order. Doesn't bode well.

    Hi, the price is very attractive, which Costco store did you buy? I didn't find any Mac pro sale in Sheffield.
