    The various UK Apple Stores, and for reference the relative prices for a base
    15" macbook pro. Obviously you have to qualify for the discount to actually
    receive it

    UK Store - http://store.apple.com/Apple/WebObjects/ukstore
    £1429

    UK Education Individual Store - http://store.apple.com/Apple/WebObjects/ukInd
    £1315

    UK Higher Education Individual Store - http://apple.procureweb.ac.uk

    Re: Usefull Apple Links

    Applecare numbers

    After paying the extra £££ for Applecare you may be miffed to find that they only give you an 0870 number. Here's the advice from www.saynotto0870.com.
    Phone your local AppleStore and select option 2 for technical support. These will be local numbers. E.g. AppleStore Regent Street: 0207 1539000
    A couple of 0800 numbers are also listed, and can be used by speaking to the operator and saying that you can't dial 0870
    0800 0391010
    0800 0399901 (Enter extension 88802 to speak to a representative)

    [Edit]
    Magic Mac keys
    This list covers a range of special key presses for both old and new machines.
