OK-you do get it 100 quid cheaper - but given Amazon have 19 in stock at present - what's the delay ?
Will they be deferring taking the 900 quid out of my credit card a/c ? I think not. DISAPPOINTING - as Amazon have earned their excellent reputation by delivering swiftly. If you order a new Mac or pc - you OBVIOUSLY want it NOW !
COME ON AMAZON - LISTEN TO WE CUSTOMERS WHO HELP KEEP YOU IN BUSINESS !!
I NOTICE that my more recent post on this subject - was Censored by erm - 'Mr and Mrs Amazon' in their infinite 'Wisdom' - probably coz I appeared maybe 'over-critical' of their recent fall in high standards ?!? OK - here's what occurred - I tried no less than 6 times to try to buy this product from Amazon's main site - each time FAILING to do so - because they would not be co-operative OR responsive to the 6 emails I sent their 'alleged Customer Services Dept.' - HA !! More like Amazon 'Customer Dis-services'... When, on the first 2 occasions they bothered to respond to my major query that I NEEDED THIS MAC URGENTLY FOR MY HOME BUSINESS and that a crazy wait of up to '3 MONTHS' WAS 'TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE' well, it WASN'T REALLY A 'Response' - since it DID NOT ADDRESS MY MAIN QUESTION ! Ridiculous thing was that they were showing - '19 in stock' - when I first ordered about a month ago....!?! Then - my last 4 emails, asking for further Clarification - were just IGNORED !!!
In the end - I found another smaller dealer - part of Amazon's Market Place - who was actually prepared to accept my money - and post it out to me here in Spain...immediately !! OK- it cost me about 90 quid more than if I'd been prepared to WAIT up to 100 days or so - which I obviously WAS NOT ! Still got it for under 1000 quids - just ! And - it only took about 5 days to arrive... And - IT'S WONDERFUL !!!
COME ON AMAZON - SHAKE YOURSELF OUT OF YOUR APPARENT - 'ARROGANT COMPLACENCY' Here ???
You MADE your REPUTATION on providing a fast and economical SERVICE !!
WHY - JEOPARDISE THIS WITH VERY POOR SERVICE RECENTLY ? YOU SHOULD KNOW - 'NO COMPANY IS EVER TOO - BIG - TO GO UNDER'....
Well, I have been looking at MACS at Amazon with a view to purchase, but if the delay is really 1-3 months for desptach, then I will certainly be looking elsewhere, no-one can be expected to wait that long for a delivery, not these days - they are having a laugh!
