    I have to agree with plexer, you buy value for money not neccesarily the cheapest available.

    Have to agree with Plexer to. How many people have here have had issues in the past when they have purchased cheap kit only to have nothing but problems? Either with the kit itself, or a suplier who just fobs you off when you have issues?

    Best value is exactly that, not cheapest price.

    No but when you build up a good working relationship with a supplier who is then prepared to go the extra mile for you when you need them too that's worth more than just saving a few quid on a single purchase.

    Can confirm quite a few ppl seem to have in stock at lower price - just spoke to a few of our suppliers who have said they can do the £169 mark.

    EDIT: We have already bought at least 30 of these machines and no problems on any of them. At that point, the price was stupidly low on HP Promo (which not all disti's passed on).

    Chief... We're not selling these, but there WERE a March promo line from HP and normal disti price was sub £160. It's only now disti stock is short/gone that prices are shooting up on stock.

    Supply and demand, I guess.

    Whoa people. I believe some clarification may be required here! Mods advise, but IMHO I would say fine for techies and Net Mans, etc to reply and advise about prices elsewhere, but other suppliers should really follow some form of etiquette and not comment on an advertisers ads! If an invite goes out for a quote then all quote. Lets stay professional people...

    OK People! Please can we calm down. I am speaking as me as I haven't had time to have a Mod-flab but I would say that users could point out that a price is rather high from a supplier as a kind way of them being pointed out but suppliers arguing with each other over pricing is not acceptable really so please do refrain from it. We really don't expect that.

    This thread is beginning to remind me of that Goodness Gracious Me sketch where the uncle announces he can get it 'much cheaper'.

    I'd like to see a cutting down of the excessive use of the thanks button in this thread.
    I don't know why but I was sooooo tempted to thank your post
