Was £99.99 but reduced to £49.99 - lesser models by Homebase brand and lower voltage Bosch models (12v and 14v) were either around the same price or more so it was a no-brainer. Part of a Bosch discount event at Homebase.

I know this is not the lithium ion battery version but for this price, compared with next cheapest at £76.95 via Amazon (although they sell this version with 2 batteries for £60 - odd!), it seems a good deal for the DIYer.
If voting cold please show where this is available for a better price...thanks.
