Apple HE Framework

The Universities Apple Computer Group (UACG) recently launched a tender to renew the existing Apple Higher Education framework agreement that has been the leading supply channel for Apple equipment to the UK HE sector for the past 12 years. The great news is that Academia have been awarded a place on the HE framework with immediate effect.

The original Apple HE agreement was established in 2002 to provide a dedicated supply channel for all UK HE institutions at a time when the demand for Apple equipment was increasing and a growing number of larger institutions were exceeding tender trigger values on Apple equipment purchases. The agreement has been very successful and is near the end of its third incarnation having been re-tendered in 2007 and 2011.

Student Discount Store

The Student Discount Store is part of the Student Superstore family and offers exclusive pricing on Mac & iPad for higher education students and staff.

We’ve been doing this since 2003, that’s a long time considering, so we like to think we know our stuff… as a company built and run by Technology enthusiasts, we’re at the forefront of getting new technology into the hands of lovely people like you. That may mean we’d be classed as a bit nerdy, but that’s cool now, right? …right?!

On top of all that, we know Education well… like… really well. Our relationships with the country’s biggest and best Colleges and Universities (we’ve worked with every single University in the country!) mean that we not only know the tech, but what the best tech is for the type of course you’re studying. Whether a Creative, Scientific, Technological, Engineering course or pretty much anything else, niche or not, we’ve been involved in supplying the tech to someone, somewhere, and likely have had a large influence in the specification and utilisation of said tech directly with the vendors that produce it – so our contextual knowledge is unparalleled.

At Mac|Two we are passionate about both the Apple ecosystem and sustainability. Established in 2017 our core aim is a simple one…. to promote the re-use of excellent quality used Apple products.

Today’s technology vendors build devices to last at least 5-10 years, yet many businesses and home users will upgrade every 2-4 years. At Mac|Two we partner with businesses and educational institutions to acquire used apple products and utilising a thorough testing, cleaning and refurbishment process we re-sell the highest quality Apple devices.

We are fussy when it comes to the quality of the used Apple products we sell on Mac|Two and only the very best Grade A products meet our criteria (approximately 25% of all the devices we test).
