deffo a misprice!
#2
Good luck on it !
#3
will they honour - big question
#4
Yep should be alot more for that
#5
They are between 300 and 400 around the web...
#6
Well, I have ordered - and if they try and wriggle out of it I will be livid
#7
Is there anyway of finding out if it's got hdmi socket?
#8
"Available to order"
#9
oO
Ordered, but expecting cancellation.
#10
... and don't forget 2% Quidco. (_;)
#11
if a shop has to honour it why should a webshop get away with it?

anyone know the legal stuff?
#12
Important note: When you place an order with us via either our standard checkout, or you choose to checkout with PayPal, you are offering to buy the item(s) in your basket at the price stated. Please note that your order will not be accepted at this stage. Only when we confirm our acceptance of your order in writing will a contract exist between us. If we do not accept your order, we will of course refund any payment taken from your debit or credit card, though please note that payment is not taken until we are ready to despatch your goods.

I no my legal stuff and Dabs have to supply the £2.5k Toughbook if u order innit.
You don't know ****. Just 'cos you want it doesn't make them obliged to sell you it numbskull.
#18
this may be stupid. but i don't think it is a misprice. the price is only £80 cheaper than i can find and its no logical misprice technique like a missing 0 or a decimal point in the wrong place, i haven't ordered but i think the ones that have might be in luck :)
#19
Just ordered but forgot quidco :(
#20
Ordered the Panasonic oO

Legally (probably), they have every right not to honour that, or any other price.
The only illegal activity that could be likely brought against them is if they continually under-priced items in an attempt to get people to buy them in the hope that they'll also purchase the item, or one similar, at full price (so called bait-and-switch):-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bait-and-switch
However, this is difficult to prove at the best of times and is usually dealt with by issuing a tiny fine anyway.

I've noticed at least one retailer who has much lower prices advertised (?) on searches than anywhere else and then they turn out not to have any in stock. At best this is a dishonest method of tempting people to their website, and at worst fraud (see above).

I have ordered but as yet to recieve an email confirmation ?? ?

Where can you see it for £80 more ? Cheapest I could google was £379 delivered.

Only £80 more! That’s over 40% more!!!!
It would be a hot deal at £80 more but whatever you found at £266 is likely from a Mickey Mouse website and no doubt doesn’t have the same spec as this.

Any techies out there that can help me choose between this one and the panasonic one someone posted in the comments. Thanks.

The Panasonic looks like that and costs £2,500 on most other websites.

Surely this is not a misprice then - the websites are not linked in any way

Well, if I get it I do, and if I don't - so what

one thing I do know - if Dabs have the cheek to offer it at its proper price to me I will politely tell them where to go
#31
wont be honoured, dont bother lots of us went for a dell 1 last week* and was cancelled, they take money aswell but got refunded
#32
Kind of you to share, AboveFunction! Heated :)
#33
With Dabs being a subsidiary of BT, I'd expect a cancellation email first thing in the morning, but worth a try :)
#34
I thought BT Shop and dabs.com were the same...

it says they do not take money until ready to despatch - so if they do and then take more than 5 mins to refund I will be more than annoyed as they will be breaking their T&C's

I'm annoyingly tempted by the powerbook, it is one ugly piece of kit though.
#38
Panasonic similar price on BTShop, I know they're related but doesn't it seem odd it's a SLIGHTLY different price? http://www.shop.bt.com/products/panasonic-cf-19-i5-540m-2-160gb-10-4-w7p-783D.html
#39
was not aware they are related, but still - Sam does have a point with regard to the slightly different prices

ahhh, I am not worrying about it now - bedtime, work in the morning

I'm tempted but Dabs/BT Shop cancelled most of our Black Ops misprice orders and that was just a small price error when compared to these laptops. See here:
