    Im going to be upgrading to a mac pro very soon and was wondering if there were any good places that sold refurb or ex demo mac pros on a regular basis?

    I obviously check apples refurb store regularly, and i also check macwarehouse.co.uk and computerwarehouse.co.uk. Is there anywhere else?

    Apple is really the only UK seller that sells refurb Mac Pros on a regular basis – I would say that the two sites you mentioned sell them relatively infrequently, but are worth checking (as you already are!). There’s also Cancom UK, as that has a refurbished section – also, there’s a few sites that specialise in second-hand machines, some of which say they are refurbished machines – just try a Web search for ‘refurbished mac’ and you should be able to find a few.

    I would also say all premium or specialist resellers like Jigsaw are worth checking (http://www.jigsaw24.com/refurb.aspx) as many do offer refurb machines – but the supply of these isn’t what I would call regular, especially for Mac Pros. Even if there’s not a section on their website, they would be worth contacting.

    However, whenever new models come out just about all Apple resellers are worth checking out as this is when they’re trying to shift old stock and ex-demo models (until new models are released it’s not much sense for resellers to flog off demo units) – and the best idea to hit the phonelines.

    Obviously, we don’t know about know when the new machines are coming out, but when they do, but that really is the best time to try and get what you’re looking for!

    And do a search for pro apps trainers in the UK - they will roll their training stock over, especially when the new ones come out so it might be worth touching base with them now.
