    I'm looking for the cheapest price on an apple mac iBook (in the UK)
    It's the one with the 14" screen / 800MHz / 256mb ram (these 3 features are different from all other models, just so you know which one :) )
    Directly from apple uk the unit costs around £1350 and the cheapest i've found it is £1326 which isn't a huge improvement.

    So does anyone know of a place to get cheap(er) iBooks from...

    Many people think that, but an 800MHz Mac will outperform a 1.5Ghz PC anyday.
    Macs's use RISC cpu's making them much more efficient than normal cisc (intel/amd) cpu's
    The highest spec pc atm is the 3.06Ghz P4 (i think?) and the highest mac is a 1.25Ghz G4, put them side by side and the mac would outperform the Pentium in every aspect.

    Unless you buy a used Mac you probably won't find any that are cheaper, Apple keeps a tight reign on their resellers prices.
