    If you need a PPC computer, the prices here will be hard to beat

    15" PB 1.67GB SD for £499

    12" PB 1.5GB for £399

    Look at the clearance price rather than the original price for what you have to pay. Only appears to be one of each left, so be quick.

    Fantastic spot, I've just bought the 12" to tide me over until Santa Rosa and Leopard next year.

    Many thanks

    I think you may have sneaked in by a minute or two with your order so best of luck!
    Maybe they have a few of them but are simply limiting the number of PB's you can buy!

    these sales

    What are these sales? Are they extra stock from Apple? Are these agents used to sell stock that the manufacturers dont want?

    How does it work?

    Does anyone know if they'll have anymore in?

    Do they come with one-year warranty from the date of purchase?

    Thanks,

    F

    Absolute tossers. I called up earlier to arrange a delivery time and they said they had to cancel my order as they had none. I explained I had a confirmed receipt but to no avail. They said they only had 1 for sale and 6 people had "bought" it, unfortunately for me I wasn't the first.

    I tried to get through to them that it was fine to only have 1 for sale but once it had gone it should be removed from sale but the bloke wasn't getting it. Absolutely useless company. Back to waiting again.

    Are you waiting for more from that site? How will you know if they'll have any in?

    I feel responsible for putting up the links in the first place. Sooooo... by way of an apology, I can confirm a definite bargain if you are looking for a Nano and are in the Watford area. John Lewis has dropped the price of the aluminium Nano - 2GB to £79 and the 4GB to £99. This is price matching in response to another local supplier and these are the prices advertised on the Nano stand, so you will not have to ask specially. This is not available online and only from the Watford branch in the Harlequin centre. I confirmed the prices today with the shop, so they are still valid.

    This may be of interest to some with Xmas coming up.

    I think he's referring to this company: http://www.powermax.com/
    I was going to order my iBook from them, but went with geeks.com instead. Although, I think that both of those store strictly deal with US customers; not sure though.

    Nope. My order was rejected the next day. I then went to eBay and bought a reconditioned iBook for £350 (inc del).

    Well the Currys store in Ellesmere Port has 12" and 15" Powerbook G4s in stock with a massive £50 off the original retail price if you want one!
