    So last Sat around 7AM i was surfing the PCworld.co.uk website and come accross this little beauty!

    now refurb or not it was priced up at £299 ! bought straight away and 10 min later the price was back up to £749 as it is today.

    Had a feeling they would pull the sale and refund my money but hey, Out for delivery today !!!:cool:

    BARGAIN ! anyone else had a bargain from the wally's at pcworld?

    That 11" model is a fabulous thing. I bought my wife one in January, and have been coveting it ever since!

    Cheers

    I'm glad to hear that someone somewhere has finally managed to get something decent from PC World. I'm not sure how they are still in business.

    Anyhoo, enjoy your MBA!

    I've had a few over the years.

    I got an ex-demo 15" MBP for £799 which was sitting next to a 15" PowerBook priced at £999.

    I've also managed to get a Core Duo mini for £279, a £500 Acer PC for £79, Sharp Blu-ray player for £30 and a £200 Pure DAB radio for £35.

    Wow! Major bargain! Would have been massively tempted to buy one if I saw it at that price.

    Where else can you get any Air for 300 quid?

    I don't think you can even get a dinged-up RevA HDD Air for that little. Congrats OP :)
