    :D aussiemarkmelb - legend........ I've given you reputation for including those codes. Thanks To anyone buying the computer, add the codes in the section on checkout where it says Add Items Using Your Catalogue Number. If you add all of these things you get the following for free...

    Thanks for the rep Admin and for explaining the codes =)

    This is definitely HOT! The graphics card on this is a high end range of notebook cards. If anyone is looking for a replacement for their system at home, this would be a perfect solution. A little odd that it comes with XP instead of Vista
  • ubs
    did anyone find out about warranty? how long is the warranty?
  • bigal
    on other forums they are saying OW notebooks only comes with 1yr warranty.
  • AussieMarkMelb
    Yeah a guy on another forum said he works at officeworks and it is probably 1 yr. he said you can normally extend to 3 yr. He suggested you bring it out or take details to an actual officeworks store and then may be able to get the 3 yr warranty for an extra $120 - $170. Not sure though.

    buy with a gold CC and extend it to 2 :) its an online only product so unlikely to be able to do it in store.
  • AussieMarkMelb
    Can you explain what you mean when you buy with a gold CC? Officeworks has now removed the product from their online store.

    Product is now not available, can't be added to cart :whistling:
