So I finally got the iMac. I actually got it a few days after I posted about where to find the best deal for Macs in Kuwait but got so wrapped up with my music room setup that I didn’t find the time to blog about it.
I got the 27″ 2.7GHz iMac from Blink.com.kw for KD599 which turned out to be the best deal I could find. I had checked at almost all the electronic stores – iCity, Digits and Al-Nahar were all offering the iMac for a lot more than Blink, and if I had to order it online it would have cost me about KD469 plus another KD75 or more for Aramex’s Shop & Ship which would add up to about KD544 which is just a few dinars less than what I paid and I’m happy that I didn’t order it online because of what happened after I brought my new iMac home.
After we got home and I unpacked and set it up, I switched it on and there was no picture on the screen! I could hear the welcome video but the screen was blank. Sadly their customer support hours were over and I couldn’t call anyone for support or to report the faulty piece, even though I did call their number a few times just in case I got through to someone. Obviously I was very pissed and frustrated and couldn’t wait till morning so I could take it back. But the staff at Blink were very helpful and they gladly replaced it for a new one, tested it at the store just to make sure and since then I’ve been busy.
So if anyone’s looking for Macs, Blink has the best deal so far. check out
