    That's a really good price for 60 laptops.

    They look ok but the processor inst very good. I would be looking at a duel core and 2GB Ram minimum in machines now.

    I'm sorry maybe I'm missing something but you bought them at £4 less per unit on a batch of 60 than one can buy them (ex vat) online for a quantity of 1?

    What? They are on the link he posted at £224.78 ex vat for a quantity of one ergo almost £5 more per unit which if he bought them on a quantity of 60 isn't a big difference.

    Mind you, selling them off at £220 is cheaper than what's online for a quantity of 1 which I think would be more than acceptable given a discount to what's on the web.

    Is the delivery price the same as online?

    I should point out though that it's a good price when compared to others online from what I can see.

    Yes you are right the web prices makes us very little profit!

    Acer Outlet are detemined to give customers value for money and as such we have low margins.

    This product is on a very low margin at the moment and it will not last much longer. Hint Hint!

    Delivery would be the same as the web, £17.50 but remember your EduGeek discount which will more than half that, we can't offer free delivery as I don't make enough!!

    Hope that helps.
