    Is that in-store only, or online?

    EDIT: Nevermind, found it online. That has to be an error, I'm so tempted to try buying it, but I don't need it.

    I saw that on Friday. It's collect from store only and I couldn't mange to find a store with any stock.

    They also had the older AirPort Express for £15 but again I couldn't find a store showing them in stock.

    I was wondering that because I don't see it online.

    edit: Odd when I select iMacs it is not there but if I search iMacs it is.

    I tried looking on Currys.co.uk too but nothing there.

    PCWorld and Currys belong to the same copmany so I thought there may be a chance, but obviously not.

    I hate it when PC world teases you like this. They've done it before and it is so frustrating! Wonder if anyone got one!?

    They will only match the price if the item is available in stock from PC World.

    It doesn't apply to online prices and most probably sale prices as well (unfortunately)

    Best deal I've ever had out of these guys is a bunch of Xbox games for 47p each.

    Anyone managed to get one ordered?
    I'd give it a go if I had more than £18, and that'd be £18 left before the overdraft is maxed. Chances of this hanging around til thursday......

    nope, she said she could only tell me the stores nearby my location she didn't have a list of where they are in stock. to be honest, they don't seem to have a very good system.
