£159.99 .. they appear to have gone back up 20quid on the normal Currys site, so not sure if they will go up at the outlet too.

Refurbs have been going for 139 on the currys/pcworld ebay shop for a while now. Nice price. I had to grab one.

i really hate the muppets that are buying tablets like these and the hptouchpad and the reselling them on ebay with crazy markups. Retailers should limit numbers imho

Well I got my Android tablet, Shuttle P10an01(identical to the vega) and installed the TR honeycomb rom. It is an awesome rom.

This website has amazing info and support. That is one of the reasons I bought this unit. As well as the Skype video support(very important).

I am not from the UK, so the Advent vega is not sold anywhere near me. I was able to source my tablet from www.buyadroid.blogspot.com. It was USD 362 with fedex delivery. Way better pricing than the XOOM.

A friend bought one of the very same refurb units from PCWorld via eBay (for £129) last week.

On Sunday we followed the instructions on this forum and successfully flashed his unit to VegaComb 9n_update first time, with no issues B)

So they are a bargain at that price!

The Vega is available and in stock at Currys and PC World (but not Dixons), at the reduced price of £199. It was that price earlier this year, then increased to £229, but has been reduced back just in time for Christmas. They have refurbs for £30 less as well. See the link below:

Thats a good price, is definately the same as a Vega?

I need to return my one as the screen calibration keeps on failing (Currys/Ebay refurb), and I think they will only offer me a refund.

i see they have upped it to £119.99 plus VAT now. Told a friend about it and luckily they got one this morning before they increased the price. Now guess who is going to have to MOD it for them...... but not with Honey Ice as I have already wasted an evening trying to get that on my Vega !!!

£119 plus vat !!! So £143. Plus it says "normally in stock" rather than "in stock" and it's Eclipse who were somewhat dubious when I dealt with them.

I reckon the previous price was a misprint.

It seems coincidental that the current Net price is exactly the same as the old Gross price....

I wonder if someone put it up as £119 excl VAT, instead of £119 incl VAT.

Congrats to anyone that got one at that price.

Now up to £149.99 plus VAT !! There were in stock as my friend received theirs this morning (saving £50 plus VAT by acting fast - wish I bought a few at that price and sold them on Ebay !!!)
