Wow in name and wow in nature. Top titles from only £7.99, delivered

4) Computer Hardware
With hardware it feels more reassuring to see the kit in action. It's an
idea to go to your local supplier, rack his brains for everything he knows,
tell him you need to think about it, then run home and use a site like this
one to take advantage of the low prices.
Certainly the most design led of the hardware sites and in turn the easiest
to navigate. The other sites have crammed a lot of information into their
home pages which makes it difficult to get started and can be frustrating.
Conversely, this site is a real joy.
Use this site as a competitive comparison to www.misco.co.uk or perhaps
for products that they do not stock.

fry surprise. You can also ask them to deliver after 11am -how more student
friendly can they be ?.
If you wish to 'save the planet by eating organic' then this is your cup
of herbal tea. Only delivers in the London area though.
Travel in theory is made to measure for the Internet and therefore there
are vast numbers of sites. However, in reality it can be a different story.
Sometimes it can be far easier to call Julie at your High Street operator,
tell her where you want to go, let her tell you that she went there last
year and 'it's lovely', let her ring you back and book it.In saying that,
there are notable exceptions which are mentioned below. There are plenty
of cheap holidays from around the world on the Internet but sometimes you
don't know where you're going to stay. So it could be a dump and it probably
will be. Please believe me, never gamble on a cheap holiday where you don't
know where you're staying. It's not a gamble - you'll lose. Now and again
they throw in a nice hotel because the few people who are lucky enough to
get one make it their life's work to tell everyone they meet. It's called
cheap advertising. If you do risk it, you'll wish you'd spent the extra
and not wasted a year's holiday. Obviously I've never done it.
Although you can't book any flights through this site, you can see who is

you could possibly want to know about travelling around the country the
'cheap' way. Unless you're a hitcher.
A database of over 145,000 hotels in 200 countries so if you're thinking
of going to Kathmandu, Kabul or Kuta during the summer they've got hotels
Billed as 'Your ultimate mountain fix'. I could think of others. Excellent
site devoted to all things snow boarding. If this is your thing you'll be
addicted to this site.
Everything a budget traveller needs to know - and which student isn't on
10) Mobile Phones
Touted as an unbiased dealership. When I bought my phone from there last
Xmas, the other three customers in the shop all walked away with the same
phone. Did we all have the same requirements or did they have loads of them
to shift in the back ?
A part of carphonewarehouse.
Instead of having to trek all the way to the Union, these student favourites
have come to you.

Last year, TV Licensing caught an average of over 1,000 licence fee evaders
each day, but TV Licensing always prefers people to pay for a TV licence
rather than be prosecuted, which is why students are being encouraged to
be properly licensed. If caught, you risk prosecution and a fine of up to
£1,000, and you still need to buy a licence.
