Sony Vaio P netbook taken for a spin

Play.com pestered to back up price claims

Andrew Moore

Euro conversion...

"Pick something is £30, and press the Euro button. Play will convert it to around €45, rather than the $33 it should be."

If you are lucky- Some of their conversions are as high as €2 to £1- especially on their special offer stuff. I've long since moved to cdnow.com- Faster service and realistic prices.
