    Default UK Macbook Pro 13". Any deals..?

    Ok guys its time to pull the trigger on a new work horse.
    Im looking for a brand new MBP 13". Preferably with a 750HD but 500 is fine, ill just upgrade.

    I know a new range is coming and I have ZERO interest in anything that they will offer, i'm more interested in a cheaper end-of-line model cus it's just for weekly gigs with Traktor, nothing else.

    I've seen some on eBay for 847 which is 150 cheaper than the Apple Store.

    Has to be 100% brand new with standard 1 year AppleCare to be upgraded after 12 months.

    Anyone have any insights. I know a few guys on here either work for Apple or have contacts.

    Not interested in:
    Second Hand.
    Ex-Demo/Display.
    Your Mac.

    Only thing i can think of is buying from the refurbed area of the apple store, but im not sure you get a full years warranty with them.

    Yeah im thinking that theres gonna be some mega deals on eBay as we get close to the new release date.
    My problem is (should of mentioned this in my OP), I HAVE to buy before April 1st, because its the end of the Tax Year and I need the purchase to show on my 2011/12 accounts rather than my 2012/13 accounts.

    Let me know what ya bro says please Tommy.

    Refurb is not what i want. Im really picky with what i buy and as its gonna get really hammered i need AppleCare even though i have good house insurance and specialist DJ insurance i value AppleCare too much not to have it. Its saved my bacon twice before.

    Yeah just looked on Best Buy and its all in Dollars so i guess the MBP will be a US version and need a US/UK plug convertor.

    901 for a 13" with a 750GB HD.

    Yeah it has to be bought before the 1 Year complimentary runs out. I was on holiday when mine ran out a few years ago and i tried getting it 5 days after it ran out and they refused.
