    I was just surfing at Lenovo's site and noticed that they had one reseller called PC World Business and I went to their site, looked at computers and saw Apple there and had a look what they have. Prices were very low, mac pro was available for less than 1400£ and high end iMac was 1150£.

    Anyone has bought from here? I'm not going to buy from there, just informating about such a cheap prices

    They are only about £20 ($30) cheaper than Apple, not a massive difference, plus Apple gives you free delivery, and PC World charge you.

    Doesnt seem much cheaper to me.

    Base iMac at PCWB - £769
    Base iMac at Apple - £782
    Mac Mini at PCWB - £387
    Mac Mini at Apple - £391
    Stock Mac Pro at PCWB - £1,654
    Stock Mac Pro At Apple - £1,712


    Prices are only cheaper if you are actually a Business, so can purchase from this section of PC World, and can thus, claim back V.A.T

    200£ difference in high-end iMac. This is mostly for people who doesn't live in UK, becouse you can't order from UK store and ask 'em to ship it to other country.

    1150£ is about 1200€ and high-end iMac costs 1919€ in Finland's store, 700€ difference.

    True PCWB will probably ship to the EU, but you will get charged all kinds of Import tax etc, aswell as unlocalized Keyboard (More of a problem with Laptops)

    FYI: the UK may not have the Euro as currency, they are definitely in Europe and therefore no import taxes are required
