Toshiba Satellite A100/H00 Notebook @ Dick Smiths $799

10 January 2007

A fairly good deal on this basic laptop from Dick Smiths. The price of $799 takes into account the $100 mail in cashback you get from Toshiba. Cheapest elsewhere taking into account the rebate is $888 so its not too bad a deal. The battery life on this is fairly low at 'up to 1.5 hours' so dont expect miracles but you can always get an aftermarket battery if needed. You'll also need to get the foot falcon out and take a wander into the stores shown on the site that have this one in stock. I'm still amazed that an electronic geeko shop like DSE only sells offline - dont they know about the Internet revolution !

No cashback from Buckscoop with DSE unfortunately - you only get the mail in stuff from Toshiba. To get the Toshiba rebate you need to purchase by 31 Jan and mail in your claim by 14th Feb.
