    Apple Macs

    hello can anyone suggest any good suppliers for apple macs and specs.
    i havent ever worked with any before.
    we will be using them for a new media suite, wich will be used to edit video's, images, create movies, so any advice would be appreciated,
    thanks:-)

    IMO find an apple reseller local. make sure they can do repairs.

    other options (that we use)
    apple (i know shocking idea)
    KRCS
    Misco

    they all do Educational Pricing.

    Spec: you cant go wrong with an 20 iMac stick as much ram in as you can afford and your laughing.

    European Electronique would be my recommendation. And the 20" imac with standard memory would be fine for most use.

    I have always been told PC World Business is pretty cheap. If you go to the apple website and look up a local reseller thats always worth a shot to.

    we have used Toucan before, they are Educational Mac Resellers, very comptitive quotes between them and misco but went with Misco Overall, but Toucan have helped to intergrate with our network.. Their Knowledge on Mac's is unbelieveable...

    what about cancom, think they do educational sales.

    Isn't the whole dead kitten thing getting very boring and completely unfunny everyone knows you don't like Macs, get over it!

    I can personally recommend these two companies having dealt with them within school and for my own personal purchases.

    KRCS are a specialist Apple reseller and gave us some great prices, and also some insider knowledge (such as the release of new machines or upgrades specs) also were able to speed up the ordering process by getting are order through to apple as priority. Specifically talk to Glyn, very friendly and came into the school a couple of times to spend time with us and do a number of demo's with various staff - absolutely no pressure to buy.

    Sound Control supplied us with 50 power macs with apple 20" screens with big discounts and other bits and pieces included in the price. Very helpful and support iur staff well during transition from PC to Mac. Dont get them to fit security cages if you purchase from the!!!! Get a specialist in!!

    If i was you id go to KRCS first to get as much info from Glyn as possible, look out for the Apple pin badge on his tie (How cool!!), then go to other suppliers with your prices from KRCS. I dont think you'll be disappointed

    I am not connected with either of these companies!

    Glyns is who we deal with here real nice chap always prepared to help. although sharkster is a bit out his way i am pretty sure he could forward you in a direction of a rep/local reseller further up north.

    @Sharkster that was from the apple education site.
    http://www.apple.com/uk/thestore and click education on the left hand side but most resellers can beat apple pricing by a few quid

    In my experience there is very little if anything in the way of insider knowledge for Apple resellers even the large ones. Apple are notoriously secretive when it comes to new product releases or even product refreshes in some instances. That includes Apple resellers not getting any information to go on until Apples themselves are ready to go public. Any 'insider' information in most cases is nothing more than what's already being speculated or tidbits that have been leaked on to internet and been picked up.
