Studio XPS 16 Order - UK
I manged to get 16% off as i got student EPP and used a 10% code of got from this site.
but even when i asked for free 1 yr accidental cover(£35) they told me no, i mean im buying a £993 laptop and they wont give me something cheaper when it costs them nothing, thats a pisstake.
is it a decent offer and is there any way i could make them make it chaeper?
