I got the DSA letter in paper form today with the quotes on the back.
They want to give me £499 of computer and £399 of "Toshiba 4 year Total Care Package"
Is a Total Care Package really worth as much as a computer? I mean, if it breaks, we'd have a spare £399 to buy a new one with!
Fair play on the laptop price though, shopping around teh internets only gets me one £20 cheaper, and a whole lot costing more.
Though when I went looking at John Lewis
I found one a bit different, same price, and some stuff that looks bigger. And a 2 year guarantee free. Hmmm.
Anyways, the laptop they've got on the list is:
Toshiba Satellite Pro A120SE-172
15.4" WXGA TFT display (1280*800), Intel Core Solo T1350 processor 1.86 GHz, 2MB Level 2 Cache, Intel 945 chipset, 533FSB, 1x512MB DDR2 RAM, 60GB hard disk, Combo Drive (CDRW/DVD), Intel 945GM graphics adaptor, Intel wireless card (802.11a/b/g), 10/100/1000 Ethernet, internal 56k modem, Intel High Definition Audio, 3x USB 2.0, Firewire, SD card reader, Windows XP Pro SP2, up to 4.0-hour battery life, total weight 2.8kb, WxDxH: 368x268x29.8/36.9mm 1-year return to base warranty.
Which might as well all be geek to me.( Read more... )
... It says something slightly worrying about me that the part I'm looking forward to most is geek-customising the backpack.
I have a Betan Astronomical Survey patch that needs a place to live.
Also Dendarii Free Mercenaries.
... I should get some Buffy patches too.
... Wonder if they make any Torchwood... or Who...
... Where did I put the address for the SG1 patch ...
PS £225 for three hours of training. *blinky*
