I don't know of a way to do what you described from within Office; but you can do it with a scripting tool like AutoHotkey or AutoIt. If this is something that you want to use for months, then it might be worth learning how to script it; otherwise, checking/entering the info manually would be easier.

That's no easy task, I'm afraid. Learn to program, then use an HTML agility pack to retrieve the information you need from the website.

Well, that or just spend the 30 or so seconds to check a website each day. eBuyer is cheaper by the way:

Cheap Laptops, Computers and Cheap LCD TVs |

For my build, eBuyer was cheaper than Scan, OcUK, Amazon and eBay on every component except one - which they didn't stock. Delivery was free and I got everything two days after my order, then I had to wait a week for my RAM to come from Amazon.

Well, what do you know, it's even cheaper on Amazon:

Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 LP Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 Memory Module Kit: Computers & Accessories

That's a rarity!
