Just ordered a new laptop from +Overclockers UK  - I've ordered from them before, so hopefully this will go a lot better than my last laptop order!

Incidentally, the laptop order with +Nigel O'Hara​ is not going so well. They've taken the money (£1,400+) then told me the laptop was no longer available, and would I like something else from the site. I asked for my money back (and I'm really not sure they had any grounds to take it in the first place) and am still waiting.

I did have a look, and they still have the laptop on the site, just at a higher price.

So, to summarise:
1. They took my money without any ability or intention to deliver the item
2. Rather than simply issuing a refund when it became apparent that they could not deliver, they made me request one
3. They still have the laptop on their site. It looks like they simply try to source whatever is ordered for less than they have charged when an order is placed (meaning that they will never be the cheapest)
4. Also, they sent me my password in plaintext, and while they said I'd have to change it on next login, I was not prompted to do so and there doesn't seem to be a password change option (this means that the password is likely stored in plaintext so is very vulnerable if they are hacked and is probably visible to the staff)

You have to request a reference from +Nigel O'Hara​ in order to leave them a review at TrustPilot but I will be doing so once I have my money back.

I'd recommend steering clear

So it seems that +Nigel O'Hara​ don't have the laptop I ordered, so the next question will be how long it takes to get a refund. Looking at reviews for the site, this could be a long wait...

Fourth day in a row for delays on Southern trains to London Victoria. Added to that, there have been delays getting home every day except Monday.

6 of my last 7 journeys on Southern trains have been delayed

It was when they said "We hope you had a pleasant journey" after a two hour train ride to Clapham Junction that had just been cancelled that I couldn't help but laugh...
