Hi folks, I am totally new to Macs and my iMac is on its way as we speak, I hope! The 21 1/2" looks like a lovely piece of kit..

I live in the S of France near the beautiful old Cité of Carcassonne after moving over 5 1/2 years back from Stroud Glos. We came over for the warm sunshine and to prove it the rain is nearly horizontal at the moment!

Hi All,

Just about to buy a new imac. There is of course the Apple Store and there is also a shop called Square: London Apple Premium Reseller | Square Group | GHC
They are Authorised apple dealers and seem to offer a superior after sales care package then apple... They have a repair centre in london and offer a 3-4 day turn around for repairs, where apple, I believe is 10-11 days... They also offer remote access and all the other stuff that you get from apple.

Was just wondering if anyone had any experience with them, could offer any advice of experiences with Applecare or Square...

Many thanks

Mac user of 2 years near Tamworth, Staffs. Moved up from Luton 5 years ago to take a job where I use a lovely, heavyweight, Toughbook. Got an iPhone on contract 2 years ago and saw the light, resulting in the purchase of 2 13" Macbook Pros with the generous 15% NUS discount. I'm studying German and French at the Open University which is totally awesome.

Hi folks,

I'm from London, too - Quite literally spitting distance from eXcel

As far as Macs go, the first one I owned was a Mac II (remember those?! ) and I've had Macs almost constantly since the days of the G3 B/W

Think they all be gone 2005 post! We do not see many of those guys now.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

LOL. Got to be some kind of necro posting record.

read the first five or so posts before realizing how old this thread is. Didn't notice till I read one of the posts that said Powerbook and wondered if the poster made a mistake.
