I visited Winfields which is a cheap shoe superstore selling remaindered shoes, boots, trainers and some clothing.
They had a little sub-section selling a few cheap electrical items and in there I found a box full of Logitech Trackman ball mice. I got one for £3.50.
This was three years ago and it's still going strong and I believe it's still available at full price so quite a bargain

Is that where you pay a price and then discover the cost has gone down literally days afterwards - consistently?

Does a free DVI cable count?
I hate that, Buy something and find out it's going on sale the next week.
Many stores have a policy where you can claim the difference within e.g. a 2 week timeframe.
Unfortunately that policy does not apply to any of the stores I buy from...

I got 3 Dell Latitude D600's, three copies of XP Pro, MS Office 07, and a Dimension 4500 with a 500GB hard drive in it for free.

Parent's work is overloaded with computers, I could probably get about 10 more of the laptops.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers
 
 

Hi there
I got some seriously good stuff ( 3 decent working machines with 250 GB discs in them as well) from a Council Tip (now rebranded as a "Re-Cycling centre") in South London UK when I was on a contract in that part of the world.

Luckily some people in the UK's capital have too much money -- no harm in relieving them of some of it.

I'm using one box as a W2008 Server -- simply for file / printer sharing.

I'm using another as a Stand alone Audio music server

I'm using the 3rd one as a stand alone Internet box - this is what I use if I need to download anything from the net --I can check that it's OK before copying it to machines on another LAN.


Cheers
jimbo

Used Dell Computer. Bargain or something else?
I can buy from a friend a used Dell computer which has been refurbished for $430.00. I probably would put in an SSD. Is this a good deal or something to avoid? It has Win7 HP but I probably could talk them into Win7 Pro. PROCESSOR Intel- 17-920. 2.66. 8MB. BLM, DO Card,...
