    So far the cheapest (non student/HE/NHS) price is on play.com for £79.99 delivered, anyone found it cheaper?

    The only other option would be eBay (or feeBay) where you might get it for £60 when its out, but its probably worth getting it off play.com because its a guarantee itll be new. :D

    You can get nectar points through the apple store, if you go to it via nectar.com
    You (obviously) need a nectar account and it's not as cheap as play, but it's something.
    Annoyingly everytime i order something big (macbook, ipod touch etc I forget to use this)

    It could be because they had the date as 31st of October and other old info that they are now updating.

    You can buy from play.com via quidco.com and get a cashback of £3.20, making it a net cost of £76.79.

    You can also buy from the on-line Apple store via Quidco and get cashback of £2.17, leaving you with a total cost of £82.83.

    Every penny counts :D

    However, I suspect it would take longer to arrive from play.com.

    On another thread it was mentioned that in the USA and Canada, if you bought a Mac on or after 1 October 2007, you can get Leopard for just $9.99.

    Is there a similar offer in the UK?

    In October my Dad bought an iMac (from our local John Lewis), and my girlfriend bought a MacBook Pro (from JohnLewis.com).

    Thanks
    Geoff

    Thanks for that :) I've cancelled my order with Apple and ordered from Play. I don't mind if it takes a few days more.

    Thanks for the link. I was pissed when I could only find it for the U.S and Canadian sites. Guess it all takes longer to update on the UK site.

    I have it for £58.75 from Apple store for Higher Education incl. VAT and shipping. In order to order from that store you must

    1) connect from within your university`s network

    2) be a student or university employee
