Purchasing Apple Computers

To order an Apple device, please contact Select (formerly Compub) for a quote. 

After you order your Apple desktop or notebook, we recommend you contact the IT Services Helpdesk ( ext. 2120) to arrange for the configuration of the device for the the UCC wired network. For iPads you will be able to connect through the eduroam wireless service with your email address and password.

Please consider the following when purchasing an Apple Device:

When Ordering

If you choose a non-standard specification by increasing the RAM or the size of the internal drive, you are then choosing what is know as a B.T.O. (Built To Order). This can delay the arrival of the device by up to 10 working days.

Keep an eye out for the arrival of new models usually between June and October. When a new product line comes in there can be added delays as Apple will have to get the new product out to suppliers and this can cause long delays.  


When purchasing any Apple products we recommend also purchasing Compub's 5 year warranty called CompuB Care plus. If any of the hardware fails on an Apple product it is usually quite expensive to repair. It is important to spend a little extra to ensure the longevity of your laptop or desktop.

There is also a special warranty available for iPads/iPhones called AppleCare Plus which covers breakage, dropping etc. which lasts for 2 years but could save you having to replace the device if the damage is too extensive.
