Ok, thanks to the post yesterday for the PC World clearout this came to my attention and I think its worth it's own post.
Right heres the deal. This is marked as unavailable online & offline on the website BUT theres a LOT of stuff in their sale thats marked out of stock thats actually in the stores, so it's a case of turn up and see if you get lucky.
Basically, go buy this for £15-97. Get home and register the warranty on the brother website and brother will kindly deposit £50 in your bank account (one per household). Then you can either sell the machine on ebay, or keep it. Either way its a profit of £34......
PCW also have LOADS of the address labels for this machine at 97p for small ones and £1.07 for the large ones (400 per roll), so this would be ideal for addressing ebay parcels.
Oh and its USB, says it works on XP/MACos but no mention of Vista.
Just to reiterate: These are out of stock on the website and supposedly in the stores BUT MAY actually be available instore on the shelf. It's a case of turn up on the offchance. I know stores still have them as I bought one an hour ago.
