An equivalent blank machine from Apple with only a 2TB internal SSD costs £1949. No hub, no software other than macOS. With our bundle you get an extra 256GB of SSD storage, HDMI out and DisplayPort sockets, an extra 2 x USB 3.0 (full-sized) ports, 1 x USB 3.1 (full sized) port @10Gbps, 1 x USB-C 3.1 port (10Gbps), and SD and Micro SD card slots and a New DVD Drive. Everything you need to get up and running. All for £150 less. Incredible bundle. Unbelievable value. Only at Steady Comps Ltd.
You can upgrade the included storage to 4TB or even 8TB. Windows and Linux via UTM can be changed to a permanent Parallels licence as well, just contact us for a quote. We also have alternative hubs with HDMI and DP output, or HDMI and VGA output to a TV or monitor.
Connectivity includes 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, two Thunderbolt 3/USB 4 ports (USB-C connector), Magsafe power delivery and a 3.5 mm headphone jack with support for high-impedance headphones. This all is tucked in a newly designed aluminum case with an integrated 1080p "FaceTime HD" webcam, Touch ID, a backlit "Magic Keyboard" with a "scissor mechanism", a large "Force Touch" trackpad, and a high-resolution 13.6" LED-backlit 2880x1864 (227 ppi, 500 nits) "Retina" display with True Tone technology. This setup is particularly useful as there are now only 2 USB-C / Thunderbolt ports on the M2 MacBook Air. No video output without a dongle, and no full sized USB ports. Our bundle solves that issue for you. A Mac from Apple, or indeed from any other seller, comes with no Windows, no Office, no Linux, no hub, and no DVD drive. Only Steady Comps Ltd. Everything you need right out of the box.
The hub is made from aluminium and is looks great with any Mac. A beautifully elegant solution for any desk – a single cable. Say goodbye to dongle life. Please note, this is a bundle option, with a 256GB internal SSD drive paired with a high speed 2TB solid-state (SSD) drive. It is not a 2.25TB internal SSD drive. Apple do not make such a machine. This is done to save you money whilst maximising the total storage and minimising any performance penalty.
You get all of our extras like the extra storage, hub, DVD drive and Office for Mac (permanent licence - not a 365 subscription), along with Windows 11 and Linux on ARM via UTM (permanent licence) in the bundle. The complete set-up.
Your machine will arrive sealed, straight from Apple, and we can then remotely install your software at a time of your choosing after you have set the machine up to your liking and imported/set up your Apple profile and programs. We include the Windows and Linux installations already set up for you - they are installed in the hub and you do not need to install or import them to the internal drive - you are ready to go. We can use the installation as an opportunity to give you a free lesson on how it all works if you wish, to help you settle in.
We are the premier and original sellers of this setup on eBay, with 15 years' experience of dual booting Macs. We can tailor any setup to suit your needs. Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 (X86 ) versions possible, as well as older versions of macOS for legacy software. Just contact us for a quote.
You get all the applicable licences and keys for the software, including your Office and Windows 11 licence key, and they can be reinstalled/moved to another Mac. If you prefer, you can have the bundle without them, they are not pre-installed. But they make an already useful machine into an indispensable machine, so we recommend you keep them.
These are all brand-new machines from our Apple UK distributors, no imports, no questions over warranty. All machines carry the full Apple 12-month worldwide warranty, as well as 90 days extensive telephone and remote terminal after-sales support from us to help you settle in. This can be extended to 3 years using AppleCare+ at any time in the first 30 days. We have been trading on eBay, our eight UK/EU Amazon stores and our own Steady Comps Ltd. website for over 15 years, and have helped tens of thousands of businesses and clients to make the transition to Mac with ease, as you can see from our extensive feedback histories.
Choose your perfect Computer - If the particular model or configuration you wanted is not listed, please just let us know, as we can supply any model with any mixture of options required. Upgraded internal storage will be the same price as from Apple UK, so upgrading from 256GB to 512GB will be £200, etc. Same applies to RAM or processor upgrades.
Machines ship within 24 hours of being ready, fully tracked and fully insured within the UK and within Europe. That covers you, the buyer, for peace of mind with delivery. We also ship to Crete, Malta, Cyprus and The Canary Islands. We ship worldwide via the Global Shipping Program. Offshore or remote locations please contact us for shipping prices prior to purchase, as shipping may vary, depending upon location and the size of the item. Items purchased without shipping costs approved may be cancelled. Your computer and your extras may arrive separately due to Covid restrictions, depending upon your location, but both will arrive at the same time.
All non-standard Mac configurations may take longer to arrive, dependent upon availability, as they are BTO (Build to Order) machines, and are manufactured by Apple on a per-order basis. That is exactly the same as ordering directly from Apple themselves. They often arrive much sooner, as our distributors often have them in stock, but please do pay attention to the time-frames when ordering to avoid any disappointment. These are suggested time-frames, not guarantees. Standard machine configurations will arrive much sooner, as we keep them in stock. Please bear this in mind when ordering. These are customized machines, customized to each individual within each order, so they take a little time. We like to think they are worth the wait. We believe you will too. If you're unsure about your shipping time, please just shoot us a mail or give us a ring, we are happy to help.
All of our items are VAT qualifying and include 20% UK VAT. VAT registered buyers in the UK can reclaim VAT if applicable.
UK sales include UK VAT @ 20%. Sales to outside the UK will not have VAT charged by Steady Comps Ltd., and anyone outside the UK will see prices displayed minus VAT. However, VAT will be charged upon import into the destination country, at your national rate. This can then be claimed back by any business that has a VAT/IVA registration number or equivalent in your country. If you purchase from outside the UK, we ship your extra items and software (hub etc.) from our EU warehouse, so your overall VAT declaration is greatly reduced – you will save money over buying in your own country or the UK.
