I went in to my local argos today… (argos.ie) intending to buy an office desk at €225.
Now that’s pretty steep for a basic desk, there’s nothing particularly special about it, but it is pretty big and has a filing cabinet attached, plus it’s sort of ‘L’ shaped in a nice curve.
So for €225 i thought it was steep but i’d get it seen as i haven’t seen ANYTHING else worth noting, and i’ve checked around several computer & furniture stores.
So anyway, i was told i can’t get it today, it has to be sent down from dublin and that it would cost €30! Feck that. Another €30 for what i already think is a bit pricey, plus i have to wait for it… So that would make the desk over €250. 🙄
Now i don’t mind paying for quality stuff – don’t forget i am buying an XPS desktop & samsung pebble monitors 😉 but i just didn’t think the desk was worth €255.
So i’ll order the monitors anyway and look further afield for a good desk. I’m also after recieving a wad of cash for my 21st birthday from my family & gf so i could actually buy everything i want right now. But i believe the price of an XPS will come down over the next few weeks (it’s already dropped about €100 within the last 2 weeks).
So i’ll be keeping an eye on dell offers and any changes they make to their main build section or the outlet store…
