    Returns are not a problem, getting your money back is...

    On theregister.com: Comet was sold for £2 (that's a two, not two million) to its new owners. Then the old owners paid £50 million to cover cost of extended warranties etc. The new owners shortly afterwards bought another company for £50 million, but that is probably just coincidence.

    The 'owners' are an investment group hence the £2 sale and subsequent purchase of other companies.

    Buying from them Apple wise is a non-issue as Apple provide a replacement if needed for faulty goods.

    All the Comet stores near me have closed down already.

    Was in Currys Digital earlier and they had reduced the old gen Mini to clear for about £420, if it helps anyone. (2GB/500GB/3000 graphics card).
