Farscape Complete BluRay boxset was less than £40 when I picked it up.....absolute bargain.

For a TV show I'd rather torrent. Then I can have it on my tablet at work during nightshifts, plus local storage > streaming any day.

Celeron's are slower but tend to have slightly better battery life.

Which Pentium chip is it? AMD Dual Core could be alright.

Hmm not aware of that one myself, on the benchmarks it looks like it'll do for web browsing and streaming videos etc.

Does Ebay notify you if you've been outbid on an item?

My tip would be to just not bid at all until there's about 6-8 seconds left in the auction. This method has ALWAYS worked for me, and I find it avoids stupid bidding wars days before the auction is due to end, which achieves nothing but the price being unnecessarily upped.

As a seller I very much appreciate the bidding wars!

Agreed! Although also the reason I no longer sell on eBay. Can't make much money of it at all these days :(

Guuuys where is the best place to look for flats/houses? Rightmove is vaguely useful and I've been into an estate agents. Shall I go into more estate agents? Or what are other good sites?

Get on the mailing list for as many estate agents as you can, as not all properties are publicly advertised.

Rightmove is fine. Also try gumtree ! People are advertising a lot on there as the fees are cheaper.

The Chester Chronicle is probably your best bet for starting off. It's out every Thursday.
