When this costs R18k a low to mid end PC you know the tech prices are out of whack.

Can almost get a better deal, buying a AMD APU mini PC from Amazon.

Almost yeah, the 1650 would be a better GFX card, but labelling this as a gaming machine sigh.
Scary thing is I built a machine in 2019 with a 1660ti, double the RAM, sure it's a 2600 CPU, but it also has 2 SSDs, 2 Hard drives for less then this.

It's a "gaming" machine for playing Minesweeper, Solitaire and Candy Crush :)

The Apple TV sells for R800 less on the iStore website. The next gen can be pre-ordered for R100 less than this "special deal". What gives? linky

Whatever you do, don't buy that apple tv. It is R700 cheaper at the iStore. Also it is the old model, the new model is R100 cheaper than this one at the iStore.

The iPad Pro 11 inch is the older model and goes for exactly the same price at the iStore, which is their normal offer. And they call it a special.

Exactly. The newer model also gets the improved remote.

How is a refurbished laptop with a CPU from 2015 for R12k a "special"? 42% off!?! Maybe from the price it was sold for 6 years ago!
