Don't know if it's a catch or not but it is on Comets website for £349 because of the extra laptop bag and Norton Internet Security 2006 included,

Be careful on Comet's prices, I got caught out once. Different prices for on-line, telephone sales and in-store.

In my case, I wanted a printer rather urgently, as the one I was using had just broken down midway through some work.Looked on the internet and Comet's on-line price was the best. Saw the sales telephone number and rang that, due to further questions that I had. The adviser agreed that I could collect the printer from a local store, at the same on-line price. The adviser did a stores check, and confirmed that I could collect from store, and a printer was waiting for collection. Arrived at store, and was told that I could not have the printer, unless I paid full store price (about £15.00 extra).Eventually, the store manager reduced the price by £7.00 as a gesture of goodwill and a managers discount. Contacted Comet's head office for clarification as to my dilemma, and basically their response was they didn't want to know. Since that day to this, I have never set foot in a Comet store, and I doubt if I ever will again. Their loss and not mine, to the tune of about £1000/£3000 per year, as they was a store that I used a lot, especially when it was under the Kingfisher Group.

Apologies for going off tangent slightly.
