    I will give you a good tip goto www.simply.co.uk they are good and sell good stuff at competitive rates.

    Their warehouse and shop is in Walthamstow near Angel tube a couple of minutes walk away if you know the area.

    My good experience with PC world was in Catford London where I picked up paintshop pro 7.04 priced up at around £40 boxed got to till she tried to charge as till said so £80 I said hey I want the price on box and she knocked off £40, apart from that I don't really buy from the Dixons group.

    They sometimes forget to change the price on the products even though it's been changed on the system. Sometimes it's down to human error... putting the correct price on the wrong product.

    With regards to PCs being crap or known to fail... that's down to Packard Bell, Advent, Emachines and Compaq, and not M/Care themselves. Whether M/Care deals with customer problems (i.e. hardware faults etc.) is another question.
    I've had an Advent laptop a few years back, and that was plagued with hardware probs... and M/Care didn't seem to be bothered with fixing it properly.
