Yep Thurrock has three in stock
£220 saving on base model isn't to shabby plus it includes 2 years warrentyThey sell a lot of Apple kit including Mac minis so I wouldn't be surprised.
My local one outside Bristol has some very large screen TVs in stock which are significantly more expensive than any stock nMP.
Must pop down there tomorrow for a look see. Pizzas are pretty good even if no nMPs!
Costco!? Ha, John Lewis didn't even know what I was talking about when I asked them if they were going to stock it.
Our local costco here in Silicon Valley has $127,000 diamond rings and $60,000 watches for sale. I doubt they sell many, but it's fun to note such things on my way in to buy our weekly staples.That's just hilarious - they will stock them in "Peacocks" next !!
Or perhaps on a shelf at "Harry Ramsdens"
Hardly Hi End retail .... honestly ... the cracks are widening
They have very strange policies in the UK depending on the percieved area they are in.My wife checked with the information desk at the store in Bristol this afternoon.
There are three available in three Costco stores, Thurrock, Manchester and Watford. They cannot be ordered online or transferred between stores. There's a couple of hundred pounds discount from the look of the price she was quoted.
Very strange, I wonder why so few at so few stores!
Probably over pricing. Costco doesn't like being told what to sell things at and Apple doesn't like stores undercutting anyone else.Unfortunately, Apple and Costco US had a falling out a few years ago. Over what? The iPad, IIRC. It happened near the end of 2010. Its odd, because not too much later Sam's Club (Walmart) started carrying iPads.
I never really shopped at Costco, store is too disorganized for my liking. I prefer Sam's Club, but that just me. Anyway, I don't remember if they carried Macs in the US. iPods and iTunes cards they did, but I don't recall about Macs and iPhones.
So, what is Costco asking for a nMP in the UK?
