I agree but tend to try for at least 1000 vertical resolution (1080, 1024 etc) as it just gives you that much more room when reading stuff, you can generally fit a whole webpage without chroming up the browser or full screening it. Does not always make it into the purchase but these last longer as the extra (height) seems to make people feel as if the PC is more powerful. It's a psycological thing.

To be completely honest, I'm not a big fan of 'offers'. I'm of the ilk that thinks 'offer us your best price always, and you'll always have a customer'. Too many suppliers try it on by giving a price that they think is ok, and then keep knocking it down when you tell them they're overpriced. It encourages poor purchasing practices which are prone to damaging both the customer and the company.

Coming from the marketing background of EvE-Online, I've always liked the fact that for anyone who wants to, they can see or at least work out what the approximate build costs of an item or services are, and see what others are charging. It means you get open and fair competition, and it comes down to supply/demand and clever thinking.
It's a shame this model doesn't work in the real world, where everyone does their best to hide what it cost, in case someone worked out that they were making a killing from it.

In Eve it's considered perfectly acceptable for the customer to explode you if unsatisfied. Then explode your factory, starbase, friends, allies, cat and then do victory flights in penis formation*.

I'm not sure yet, it's hard to give £1 =1 point because everything has different margins. I'm going to have a think over the weekend and have a chat on Monday. I'll post on here the ideas first, to get feedback from you all if that's ok?
