** Thanks Guitargaz - "Code TABLET5 brings it down to £71.24 + 8% QUIDCO"
** Thanks Simplyjimbo - Price amended from £79.99 to £74.99
Can only be compared with the sub £100 tablet PC.
Seems a good deal - matching that of the CPW clearance (no surprise, as BestBuy now own a sizeable chunk of CPW)
Couldn't find the BestBuy deal when I searched (but I'm sure I will be informed if someone else has posted before.)
