Apple is offering interest-free credit on new Macs purchased in the UK between 15 November and 8 January.

A new product promotion, 'The Perfect Gift', means potential customers can buy a new Mac on the never-never and pay no extra interest on the purchase as long as they pay the money back within six months.

"Purchase a qualifying Mac interest-free over a six-month period. Pay one sixth of the total purchase cost each month, and nothing more. 0 per cent typical APR," the company promises.

Terms and conditions do apply. The financing comes from MBNA and is only applicable against purchases made at the Apple Store and participating Apple resellers and is only available against new Macs worth in excess of £500.
