Apple Macs

Hi All,

Just thought I would float this one out there for UK Members.

One of our suppliers has Apple hardware at a significant discount via something called Box Damaged stock.

By box damaged, of the circa 20 items we have previously bought this has resulted in the outer brown box having a tiny tear, with the inner product box being perfectly fine.

By significantly discounted, I’m talking around £800-£1,000 discounts on MacBook Pro’s, iMacs and Mac Pros.

They’re all fully covered by warranty, are brand new and come in various configurations.

As an example:


Brand new 15" Macbook Pro which retails at £3,028 including 3Yrs AppleCare
Spec's as follows:
15" Macbook Pro with Touch Bar & Touch ID
2.9GHz Quad-Core Intel i7 Processor, turbo boost up to 3.9GHz
16GB Memory
512GB SSD
Radeon Pro 560 with 4GB Memory
4x Thunderbolt 3 Ports
Swedish Keyboard
AppleCare registered until December 2020

It has a Swedish keyboard yes, but it’s also got a price of circa £1,800!

Those are our cost prices shown so it would be nice to make a little on them still, but thought people on here may be interested since I have to sell them for a fair whack more on eBay to cover the cost of fees & PayPal.

Let me know if you’re interested.
As other items come up I can let you know, but they are usually VERY time limited offers as they seem to be snatched up within 24-48 hours of them going up on their store.

The MacBook Pro with Swedish keyboard we purchased as I was going to use this as my own machine but have decided to hold out for a higher spec with more storage and a faster processor :)
So I can confirm it’s all brand new and not damaged. The supplier even missed that it had AppleCare pre-registered, thus the ridiculous price on it. I also believe it’s possible to take it to Apple and swap it with a british keyboard free of charge if you can... ahem.. break the keyboard somehow?

That MacBook Pro is going spare at the moment if you / someone did want it?

There’s also a top spec 27” 5K iMac with 2TB SSD and 64GB Memory at (I think) around £3k.

Super. Send me $5000 to my by PayPal and he’s all yours. You’ll have to collect him of course. And once completed his 50% share of our house automatically transfers to me.

I’m having some problems with my finances here in my country my friend. I have a cheque here that I need to cash. If you could kindly send me $500 I will then send you a cheque for $50,000.

Is that ok my friend?

Please send quickly I’m very keen to get my hands on the Texan!

greetings from Nigeria!

Re: Apple Macs

Of course no problem, here’s 500 Zimbabwean dollars. That should buy you a mouldy slice of bread to tide you over until you get that tasty, tasty Texan.

For just an extra $2.99 I’ll throw in Matt. He’s a bit old and tough, but he can probably write you a nice plugin or something.

Re: Apple Macs

Now we’re talking, if I had a Matt and a Jay I’d have the full set! I could then hold the Indigo world to ransom and make a fortune!

All I’d need to do would be to sit in my Dr Evil chair with my white cat and the ransom dollars would roll in!

Even better I would have total control of the Indigo road map....mwahahahahahahahahaha

.....This might be going a bit far now!! Sorry Pete to derail your thread :)

Re: Apple Macs

Technically I derailed it. But that is my job around here. And it pays damn well too. £69k a year. And a company Tesla. And access to the jet.. although it’s still being deep cleaned after that weekend away where I thought it’d be awesome to fill it with lots of hot chicks and champagne.. turns out turbulence and that doesn’t mix.
