Where is the cheapest place to buy a MacBook Pro in the UK? The lowest price I’ve seen for a MacBook Pro 15 base model is from BT for £2131.68. I’ve seen cheaper on eBay and classified sites like gumtree and crazyoz, but I’m scared that stuff on there maybe stolen and it would void my guarantee. Is there any way to check that stuff is legit? Should I ask for a purchase receipt?

Here’s a link to the lowest price I’ve found...

PC World have a few discount prices online for MacBook Pro's, as well as a further £50 off the marked price until Sunday (for bank holiday weekend). May be worth a look...

Thanks for the reply. I just looked at PCworld.co.uk and the price is £2350 with £50 off, so it's basically £2300. The price from BT is still better. Maybe it's the lowest in the UK from a proper shop?

As I've said, I've seen better on eBay, but I don't want to spend thousands and end up with a dodgy laptop without any guarantee. Would eBay give me a refund if the laptop turned out to be nicked with a voided guarantee? Any idea?
