ive had three computers from time/tiny down the years and not had any bother with them, advised a friend to buy from them the week before the went bust!

hi im going to buy a laptop, in the range of £500 to £600, and after looking in the usual places i saw they are doing a high spec! one for £600

2 questions
1, has anybody dealt with them since they went bust and then re started?
2, what do you think of the laptop

they dont seem to hide the spec like a lot of other dealers...
oh the laptop is for entertainment use on holiday etc... not really for work
i also saw a toshiba one that looked good, but im getting lost in the forest, please dont refer me to dell, evertime you see aprice and then click ont he website its £100 dearer, con merchants....

remove the 3 year onsite warrenty :P don't go dell i am having problems with a laptop from them which died after 3 weeks, looks a good spec laptop but a friend said that the specs are good but the performance just isn't there for some reason? but i have had no direct experiences will time/tiny. But i can say the spec is good, 2 hours battery is ok i guess.

all the same you dont offer a product at X in the advert then click on the link to find they have included extras without asking...

im sure a lot of people get caught out with this, also sure a lot of them think that they cant have the computer without it!

also if they are up to sly things like that, what else are they up to?
