    Unless it's under £99. Wanna know why?

    Since BT bought out Dabs.com, the entire Dabs shop is replicated at http://shop.bt.com - the only difference is that all orders over £99 get free delivery! Don't buy from Dabs.com, use the BT shop instead!

    It's strange but true - exactly the same stock and prices but with a free delivery option available all the time! How cool is that?

    :)

    Dabs used to be great, though not got anything from them for a while as shown by this pc's spec. The HTPC was from scan.co.uk, eclipse computers and htpc specialists though

    Ah the offer must only have been on for March or something. It's ended now and you have to pay postage on both sites. Oh well, at least I bagged myself an EVGA Geforce 9800GTX for £215 inc. postage :) The price has already gone up to £246 and there's £6 postage to go on that!!!
