Apple UK and participating Apple resellers are offering a special low interest rate for purchases over £1,500.

Customers can finance the purchase of any Mac worth over £1,500 (including VAT) at an interest rate of 7.9 per cent APR. "That’s almost half the usual rate of 14.9 per cent," Apple says.

The offer is only available between August 4 and September 30, 2004.

Appe explains: "Choose any Mac - with or without an Apple display - and add an AppleCare Protection Plan plus any Apple software or accessories. Third-party software or peripherals can also be purchased as part of this offer but must not exceed one third of the total financed."

Terms and conditions apply.
