Also we have upgraded the three years warranty arrangements that come with every Mac and now include a Loan mac unit should yours need collecting for repair. That means a next day delivery of a loan mac and the courier can collect the faulty unit at the same time.
We often get asked how do our financing offers compare to those on the Apple Store. HardSoft offer genuine 0% interest free credit; Apple Store doesn’t though the option of NOT having the warranty is available.Get it from the Apple Store and yes you are free to just have the standard 1 years warranty but you have to pay 14.9% APR via financing by Barclays. Apple Store without warranty is more expensive than HardSoft financing with a warranty that is technically an extra cost.
Let’s do some comparisons on the real costs on financing for home use an Apple iMac 21-inch- 2.7GHz………
HardSoft Costs with warranty – Total Cash Price – £1149 , Apple Warranty £139. Total repayable based on 0% APR- £1288
Apple Store Costs without warranty – Total Cash price – £1149. Total repayable based on 14.9% APR £1322.88
Apple’s credit has an APR of 14.9%. Hardsoft give you the extra warranty whilst Apple Store financing just take the money. In reality the Apple Store is 5% more expensive and you only have a years warranty.
So whether you need a new Mac for Football Manager or a student in the house or you have fallen in love with the iPad air apply to do for a quick and easy decision. HardSoft have been established for over 20 years and are Apple Authorised. We also offer a business lease for all companies which includes Renewals and cancellations and three years warranty as well.
