Buying Apple hardware and software

There are many ways to purchase Apple Mac hardware and software. Here we have provided a listing of potential sources.

1. Perhaps the best know method is Apple's Irish online store.

The Apple Online Store also sells refurbished Macs and iPods that often represent good value for money.

2. Another source is Apple's network of authorised dealers. You can find a list of dealers in your area by following this link to Apple's Irish web site where you can use a retail locator.

This locator is also handy if you are also looking for training or consultancy services.

ClubMac asks you to support our favourite Apple dealers, CompuB and Galmac Computers, who provide club members with a 3% discount on all hardware and software purchases.

See Membership offers for more information.

3. The Apple Store in Belfast. While there have been on-going rumours that Apple will open an Apple Store in Dublin, the only Apple Store currently on the Island of Ireland is in Belfast. The store is located in Victoria Square; click the icon for further details.
