Anyone Looking for a Cheap Landing Pad?


#21

Perhaps.

I use mine for cheap cinema tickets, prime, discount on amazon basics stuff and used to get spotify half price although that’s no longer available.


#22

Bought mine on Amazon, arrived next day. Surprisingly well made and large. Free postage on prime.

Just be wary, they are cracking down on this Mrs has had 4 years and then had to prove her course, I’m now on my 4 years worth, we both work for a University and have .ac.uk addresses


#28

Who’s cracking down?
I could get a new iMac with student discount Mmm off to look now…


#29

What’s unidays anyone?


#30

amazon


#31

So you get the commission NEVER…


#32

:grin:


#33

The UNiDAYS discount is 10% and the freshers deal of a nice pair of beats is tempting . But with the iMac range up for upgrade (rumoured) it might be better to wait.

My previous 3 MacBooks all came with 20% discount and 3 years AppleCare included. Shame Apple changed to the UNiDAYS discount of 10%


#34

Thanks chris
We all lived in hope my 2011 27” iMac is no longer updatable so am poised to buy a newer one
They released the iMac Pro last year so it maybe next year before they upgrade anything
The was an article yesterday saying the new phone had a similar performance as the 13” MacBook Pro but I can’t do FCPX on a phone not with these eyes anyway


#35

Ah, whip it down here , i’ll soon stick a new mb in it, new cpu, RAM, and wallah !!.
Been building these things since the days of 486 SX 25 , with 4 mb of RAM, and a massive 170 mb hard drive !!! and it’s still in the loft in full working condition.


#36

I have windows machine when I remember to turn it on it requires 2 brews a shopping trip and a bath before all the updates are installed
Not so with the iMac it just works ( expensive though it is)


#37

The only difference between a Mac and a PC is the operating system.
This machine is dual boot SS drives, windows 7 pro (stick 10 up ya ass) and Mac Operating System OS X


#38

My first pc was bought from escom back in the mid 90s
Then started building myself (that’s where all my money went for that extra FPS
my first pc was a 486 with sound card and CD-ROM and 4 meg of ram and a 14400 modem not much change out of grand


#39
