Microsoft Office Home and Business at quite a low price compared to other stores. Currys have it at £190 if you buy it online, otherwise it's a big sum of £219.99. It's a £21.72 saving (190 - 168.28)

MS are really keen to copy Apples business model of getting users trapped in their Eco system.
Trapping users has been the MS business model for the last 30 years.

Free onlinehttps://www.office.com
Or free versions like Open office or libre office.http://www.libreoffice.org/https://www.openoffice.org/

Stupid argument. This post is for Office 2013 not a cheap/free alternative. Every product has a cheep alternative (i.e Tesco Value range for food or Argos Value range for household products) but that doesn’t mean is a direct copy – its an ALTERNATIVE!
The online ones don't have the same features, they are useless when you have no connection and are irrelevant to this deal anyway because this is for people who want to licence MS Office.

Free open source versions are no good to me because I don't run a JRE and they do my scientific detail very badly (or not at all).
With the new generous side to MS I would expect the Home price to drop to next to nothing or free upgrades from 2010 when Windows 10 is released.

Retailers will have a small window to sell of their stock or face loses.

Yes, but what's that got to do with it when the others do the same things and they are free?


In your opinion. Some people prefer "proper"office. Comparing to office online is a bit dumb.

I paid less for a 4790k


Where from?

Also what fan do you have with it, thinking of getting a 4790k with noctua nh-d14.

Got a deal from Scan with a Maximus VII Hero, was a Today only.
I have a Noctua D14 2011SE PWM with a Socket 115x mounting kit.

Is there any difference bwtween them? is the 2011 better and worth the extra with the mounting kit?

Im guessing this is the kit http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00C68PDI8

Ive got all the parts now only this processor left.

Thanks as always.

Yes that's the kit :), noctua are great that you can keep the cooler and buy new mounting kits when new sockets come out.

The normal D14 did not have PWM fans so I bought the other version and the correct mounting plates etc for socket 1155/1150 but now they do the D15 which is PWM.

D14/D15 is a HUGE cooler though. Check you have room in the case.

i7 4790k is £240 on scan today only offer. No idea about delivery as I get free next day from them.


Space shouldn't be a issue, I have the Fractal Design R4.

The D15 according to reviews, seems to hang over the pci slot so may go for the 2011+kit.

4790k is £249 on Amazon and in stock on the 23rd, so may just go for that due to easier returns.

Thanks again.

If it's any help I had the R4 with a Dark Rock Pro 2 then the D14 both fitted in with ease. I looked at the D15 before I ordered the 115x kit and wasn't that impressed. So kept the D14 and got the 115x kit from Amazon. Could not be happier. This is all in a HAF X Full Tower now.

Another update; one of the new & used sellers has got this cheaper @ £284.99
The price has been steady for about a month now, it's got to drop again soon.
SgtFlash
If you get enough likes on a HUKD page requesting it, do you think Amazon would reduce it to £289.97?

there's one for a starter (_;)

Enjoy to the people who can afford to buy these. 6-8 times the price of hdd of the same size, it is really like driving a porsche to a ford in terms of performance?

No, its like a Jet Fighter compared to a Milk Float.
Prices reduced even further:
CT512M4SSD2 w/o bracket now £291.55
CT512M4SSD1 7mm now £284.35,
Both the lowest they've ever been.

Quasso, I still don't see what other interpretation you can give other than he was talking about Nazis. When have you ever seen somebody talking about goose stepping and salutes in that way where Nazis are not implied? He has since called somebody a fascist, which further confirms it.

Maybe you never explicitly said that you thought I was acting like I thought I was "some kind of internet 'genius'", but if you weren't referring to me, just who were you referring to - and what other reason would you have for writing such a comment in that way? You certainly seemed to be implying it.

You did indeed say that you don't agree with those sort of comparisons, but you also came across as somebody who is happy to defend somebody who is insulting and offensive. As you just said, it wasn't likely that he wasn't talking about the Nazis. In that case why defend him? He hasn't even got the balls to come back and tell us whether his comment was intended to offend!

For somebody who says he wasn't trying to argue, your posts come across as extremely argumentative and confrontational!
I haven't even read anything that guy put really, I wasn't trying to defend him either. I see why it might've seemed like I was defending him but I was more just questioning your reasoning/citation of that retarded 'law', it just doesn't really deserve any credit whatsoever. It's totally inane.

But yep I wasn't trying to argue about anything in particular, more just talk about things, although I generally tend to come across as confrontational when I do, it's more just that I'm quite passionate and analytical and sometimes take things the wrong way too!

I already mentioned that I don't agree with Anarchist by saying I thought deals like this are useful and don't detract from the site's value, they help make it.

One final thing, to do with whether he was talking about Nazis, I was just saying that you made a definitive statement in response to what he said, but that statement was based on a presumption, that's why. To me it would make more sense, rather than potentially jumping the gun, to say 'If you're referring to the Nazis...' that's all.

Anarchist,
It seems you fail to read people's posts and barge on with what you want to say regardless.

You seem to interpret what someone writes and then regurgitate it, often badly, and state it as if fact.

I note your posts consist of a personal insult, involving politics and usually school as well. Perhaps you should find a debate group instead of planning your next written assault on someone.

Also, I have not once said nobody should post, otherwise why would I have? Also you say price isn't the focus of the site..

Strange how someone will often say, I'm waiting for it to hit 250 before I buy. I can't say I've ever read someone saying I'm waitin until the warranty increases to 5 years.

Also, if the price wasn't the main factor, it must be a huge bug in the website that once the price changes, the deal is quickly expired.

I thought I should let you know so to can quickly write a long winded and unhelpful post ordering someone to amend this immediately.

I'll state again, hot deal. Hopefully people are enjoying the price and not the needless debate.

can i ask - what do you use multiple vms for? is it a work thing?
Hi Alyosha, yep, I use ESXi (a VMWare hypervisor) to run multiple OSs for testing applications under different versions of Windows.

am I missing something but what is with the demand for this??
They're great as the storage for a whitebox VM server. The bottle-neck in ours is the HDDs - it's dreadfully slow when multiple VMs need simultaneous disk-access. At 40-80GB per VM, 512GB is a useful size.

It's a good price but personally (and this is purely my opinion) this is just too much space, I'll explain...

If you're using a large SSD for storing music and films then it makes little sense but when you factor in big steam libraries and a catalogue of other games, you could fill that up pretty quickly.

also, if you do a lot of archiving and unarchiving it makes a phenomenal difference. like >20x faster than 7200
It will only be beneficial if you are archiving small files from one SSD to another SSD. Otherwise your speed will be limited to whichever is the slowest device. Also, SSD's are poor value for bulk storage. The very nature of archiving is that you do not access the data very often. What's point of spending £300 for a 512GB super fast SSD and filling it with low usage data? Surely a 2TB HDD for a quarter of the price is much better for storage?

My opinion is that SSD's are best suited for OS boot drives and commonly used applications. Placing games on an SSD makes very little difference versus a good 7200rpm hard drive because most of the loading time is taken by texture mapping and prefetching (handled by the Graphics Card). My main PC contains one 128GB SSD (about half full with Windows and Apps) and one 2TB 7200rpm HDD (again about half full with games, home photos, videos and music). A 512GB SSD would make absolutely zero difference to me, other than shrinking my beer fund.

£300 is a great price for a very decent 512GB SSD, but still too expensive for most people to justify.

i meant rar-ing and unraring to the same drive. a 20GB rar file takes just a couple of minutes to unrar. to me that's worth a lot because it repeatedly saves time.
now we wait for the sumsung 830s to drop again
