Harris Tech up to 60% off notebook sale (conditions) Maybe some bargains

22 July 2009

You have to buy 2 accessories first (around $100 min) to enable you to buy the cut price laptops.
Check the terms carefully.

Notebooks are sold with a No Returns Basis!

Some good looking discounts but stock will be limited or gone quickly already.

    Good price on the Macbook 2.4Ghz in the discounted prices. The list of accessories is pretty slim - watch the prices in there. That Lacie drive as an example is $50 to $80 over market, so as a deal you need to be careful. Assuming I wanted the MacBook at $1162 - normal price for it would be about $1800 up - I'd get the MS Wireless keyboard mouse kit ($119) as it'd be useful and probably the Lacie drive ($159) although its a bit small. $278 for the accessories which if I bought elsewhere would have cost me about $120 less. Assuming I was going to buy the accessories at some time anyway the deal works out pretty well.

    Trouble is, there's not stock of the actually 'cheap' notebooks.
  • admin EDITOR
    which were you looking at kingy?
  • kingyubbo
    and of the Macbooks, Toshiba 13", Dells or anything under $1000 really. Would go perfectly for the folks.

    Borderline false advertising where they have such a limited stock.

    I guess the lucky 1-2 people would not agree.

    Do you have to go through the purchase process on the accessories before you find out what stock they have left ?

    HT have rather a frustrating online system... seems to be partly designed to force you to look at lots of stuff... most notebooks i looked at were either pickup only from one or two business centres, or stock-unknown-request-info... the really good bargains seem to be for old stock with only a few units left to clear... i also had a bad experience ordering an iMac through them for a client a few months ago... i was told it would be delivered in a few days... when it never showed up i had to call them to find out they actually wouldn't be able to get stock for a couple of weeks (they didn't bother to contact me to let me know)...

    I actually managed to get the Toshiba. Yupe I was quick :) Very good machine, well worth the $1100 (incl mouse and bag I got it with). The only regret is I didn't buy 2!

    By the way, none of the originally featured laptops are available anymore. They have a selection now with much much much less savings (ie you can get cheaper elsewhere): ht.com.au | Latest Promotions | 60% off selected notebooks

    I "add to cart" items that I wanted and continued with the delivery info and payment process. There wasn't any hassle for me. And I got the goods this morning, now setting it up, so all good.

    nice one... i think they had a limit of one notebook per customer anyway...
  • admin EDITOR
    yea - one per customer.

What do you think?
