Apple iMac 27 inch Desktop PC,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple iMac 27 inch All-In-One Desktop PC (Intel Core i5 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor, 2X2GB RAM, 1TB HDD, AMD Radeon HD 6970M with 1GB graphics) (Launched May 2011) - Older Model (Personal Computers)
I decided to buy a new iMac about a year ago and so took plenty of time to review all the purchase options including buying directly from an Apple store.
The decision to buy my machine through a company supported by Amazon was made only a couple of weeks before I made the purchase when I discovered that there were considerable savings to be made through Amazon due to the almost daily fluctuations in the cost. Most will be aware that the full retail price of this machine is £1649.00 but my purchase of the machine through Amazon was able to save me almost £220 on the recommended price and I strongly advise that anyone making a similar purchase should follow the same route.
To have ordered and purchased such a high cost item from a small company outside the protection of Amazon might have been considered by some as risky in that the money could be taken without supply of the machine and the company disappear but the Amazon guarantees provide all the reassurance you need and the whole process of order, despatch and receipt of the goods was flawless. I actually ordered the machine just before a bank holiday but that did not stop it arriving the first working day after the bank holiday was over.
The machine itself is everything I expected and more. I thoroughly recommend the service and the item to anyone contemplating a similar purchase.
