I need it for work. Document management. When I bought it I thought it had a disc drive which it didnt. So I had to buy an Apple disc player. It works but I told them I wanted Windows as I have no experience with apple and it is not for show or play but for work. Nothing wrong with it. Its not work doc management really. I just wanted a replacement computer and told them my specs. Told Apple is best. What do I know about computers to argue? I could not take it back as they had to put more memory on it as well as it would have been too slow. They could have simply told me to buy the I7 version which they didnt have. So as the machine was customised before I took it back I could not take it back under the 28 day returns policy as it had been opened by them.
Rights to return it and get my money back. I need it for staff too. All staff will need it windows to work from. It's double cost. I told them I just wanted a comp to replace my one. Said Apple is better as virus free and works like a beauty. Dont care about aesthetics -just wanted a new comp. Was over sold with Parallels software that I did not need but I was charmed by Apples rep at Currys. Was too tired to argue as I know nothing about comps save that I wanted a replacement comp
I wanted windows so why sell apple with windows parallels on it as it only slows it down and also because I am using windows still I still have to get anti-virus programmes.
Why go out of their way to sell me windows on apple when a windows operated comp would better as it is two machines in one as windows is run through apple.
I told them I had no time to relearn buttons, settings and needed it for work and not for photoshares and such like. No twitter or such like. Just plain word processing, emails and outlook. 3 hours later I walked out with an apple
I was told it would be faster. It is slower. I was sold Windows software for Apple which slows it down and still is prone to viruses. It is slower, more cumbersome and actually doesnt suit what I needed it for. Why sell me an Apple when I wanted Windows and was reassured everythign would be fine when it is not? The misstatement is that it would work better for me when it doesnt and when considering I went in asking to be shown windows comps was told this was the 'best fit' when it clearly isnt.
'They sold you an Apple because they are much better than Windows'
Thats not the point. It does not meet my needs. If the statement made is false as to the software application and that solely influenced my decision to buy the Apple in the first place then that must be misrepresentation. I dont agree that they can walk away from this because I am looking to them on this. Apple is not better. It depends on your business needs. I told them I did not want Apple but persuaded me that it met my needs
So would I need to get expert evidence on the software not being what I required and thus mis-sold before I sue them? I just want to issue proceedings as the 'whole' sale was predicated on the machine being a suitable replacement and it isn't.
