pc world advent 9115

Saw the above laptop advertised last week,(looks good spec for the price) looking for 2 for kids, since then unable to purchase online from any scottish store (all sold out). Any ideas on pc world's past trends on sold out items. Should I just keep trying, as cutomer services say stock changes every day, or have I no chance? Also tried dixon's site as affiliated, same result. Help.

Yep - ]clicky.

If you can't be bothered reading all that, the summary of it is that PC World run this little scam regularly. I assume the idea of it is to advertise some laptops cheap either at a loss or a very small profit so's to fool the public into thinking that they're cheap and to entice punters into the store, and once they've been lured in, to switch the cheapest available laptops to something a good deal more profitable. They're highly unlikely to have any intention of getting the laptop back in stock, or if they do, listing it at the same price as advertised.

Your best bet is to look elsewhere. Dell's Vostro range (listed on the site under the business section, but available to the public) probably offer you better specs for less money. If you can be bothered, fill in a complaint form on the ASA website. It'll not have any effect on PC World (it's precisely for the reason that the ASA are completely useless that PC World continue to get away with their scams), but someone else in the public might end up reading about it, and you could save them the trouble you've gone through to find that PC World are basically just lying to you.
