Now that 2011 is done and dusted, the most-recent Christmas is starting to become a distant memory, as Britons begin to take stock of what lies in the year ahead.
But while most people are trying to forget how much they ate over the festive period, others are still ruing the fact that they’ve had to go back to work without getting the present they really, really wanted in 2011.
For a lot of people, the present they never received is likely to a pricey one. It’s also likely to be a technological one. Think smartphones, tablet computing and notebooks. For most people, these are the items to own right now. Sadly, the quality of products produced by a company like Apple means that these goods are sometimes beyond the reach of mere mortals in terms of price.
However, there’s ways to get that special present without actually buying it. Those that hire Apple Mac products for example get all the benefits of owning one of the most technologically advanced, cool and gorgeous looking devices on the planet for a mere smidgen of what it would cost to buy one.
While that might seem obvious enough, you’d also be tasked with paying for software if you had your own Mac. This also doesn’t come cheap. Getting the best package of graphics, desktop publishing and office software could set you back a few hundred pounds – and that’s on top of a new £700 Macbook, or £400 Mac mini.
With an independent reseller, they have the ability to also bundle in software such as the Adobe CS5.5 series, Avid and Microsoft Office 2011. Only the most up-to-date software should do for someone who’s willing to use a Mac of course.
You’ll always have support too. Even if you’ve got a customer care line for a new Mac product, trying to get through for some quality advice isn’t always guaranteed. At least with your Apple Mac hire firm, you’ve got a dedicated leaser who’s going to pull out all the stops to make sure that the Christmas present you never got lives up to your expectations as if it were your own.
