For Trade – 2017 27” iMac 3.4Ghz i5 5k retina – 16GB RAM / 1TB FusionDrive

Posting this on behalf of my brother. Feel free to communicate with me and if there’s serious interest, I can send you his details via PM

For trade or possible straight sale: 2017 27” iMac bought March 2018 with email receipt to show outright purchase

I’m seriously considering either selling this or swapping it out for a decent spec’d Mac mini (must have a min of 16GB RAM and either a 256GB SSD or above) OR a 15.4″ MBP with decent RAM and an SSD

Really would need them to have warranty (either normal Apple or AppleCare etc) ideally and they need to be in superb condition

We’ve just put pen to paper, so to speak, to get an extension done as we feel it’d be the right time now and before, if we’re lucky enough, to start a family…! So, my office needs to be small and fluid, rather than a huge office desk and 27″ iMac and hifi stuff, as it is currently, as it’s going to get knocked down, so I may end up working from the living room…!

iMac spec: 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display

Bought March 2018, so well within warranty and within the AppleCare addition period. In absolute pristine condition/as new, fully boxed with power cable (no mouse or keyboard though – can be picked up easy enough and I feel these are a personal preference too (ie. I use a trackpad and fully wired, full-size keyboard)

I paid full price for it and would be after £1450 with no offers

As for the swap; it’d be the Mac Mini plus cash my way, or the same with the MBP and cash on top to equate the value of my iMac

I’d consider an MBP with the value of £1k maximum, ideally less, or a Mac mini with the value of £500 or less. But feel free to drop me a line with what you’ve got if you’re interested in this

I’m in Preston, Lancs and would rather this be sorted in person. But happy to send the iMac at a 50/50 split of the cost. If the Mac mini/MBP seller isn’t local; I’d need to have that sent to me first, so I can shift everything across correctly and then fully wipe/reinstall the iMac, should take a day at max

Let me know if this could be of interest, or feel free to drop me a PM

Price and currency: 1450
Delivery: Goods must be exchanged in person
Payment method: Cash ideally, but happy with a bank transfer, but no PayPal
Location: Higher Walton, just outside of Preston
Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

Microsoft Teams free version takes on Slack, Cisco Webex

Microsoft has introduced a free version of Teams that uses the vendor’s online Office suite in providing a no-cost way for people to compare the collaboration app against rivals Slack and Cisco Webex Teams.

The Microsoft Teams free version, launched this week, is designed for small businesses or groups of people within a company that does not have a commercial Office 365 subscription. The web version of Teams works on all major browsers except Apple Safari. Support for the latter is coming “very soon,” Microsoft said.

The introductory offer is meant to sell Office 365 as much as Teams. In announcing the free team collaboration app, Microsoft said users could “discover the value of Office 365 as they grow and scale.” People can create content within Teams using the online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, which are all part of the cloud-based Office suite.

Collaboration vendors, such as Slack, Atlassian and Google, have used the freemium product model for years to attract people willing to test the platforms as an alternative to email. In launching its free product, “Microsoft has to learn what other players in the market know — how to convert the free users to paid users,” said Wayne Kurtzman, an analyst at IDC.

Microsoft’s lure for conversion is its online Office suite, Kurtzman said. “It’s a good differentiator that is perceived by users as valuable.”

Along with integration to the Office apps, Microsoft is providing organizations with the tools for adding third-party app integrations. Teams also has a store for downloading any of 140 business apps, including Cisco’s Webex online meeting software, Evernote, and Trello.

A person using the Microsoft Teams free version can create groups that collectively do not exceed 300 people. Microsoft does not restrict the number of chat messages and offers online audio and video calling. 

A Teams group has up to 10 GB of file storage, plus an additional 2 GB per member for personal storage.

Microsoft Teams free version shows vendor wants to win

With the free Teams product, Microsoft is telling it’s largest rivals — Cisco and Slack — that the company is in the market “to win it — or at least significantly disrupt it,” Kurtzman said. However, the competitors have advantages. Slack has more than 1,500 third-party app integrations, and Cisco’s Webex Teams is a video-centric collaboration platform that works well with Cisco’s networking hardware and software.

Microsoft is preparing for battle by simplifying its collaboration portfolio. The company has said it will replace Skype for Business Online with Teams, a move that raised concerns that Teams won’t have the same telephony tools. Microsoft has tried to ease customer anxiety by rolling out Teams calling features, such as call delegation and direct routing.

Call delegation lets a user receive someone else’s call — a necessary feature within enterprises. Direct routing enables companies to use their existing telephony infrastructure with Teams. However, accessing that function requires a company to have Teams and Phone System — formerly called Cloud PBX — as part of an Office 365 subscription.
