Discounted price(about $100 off other retailers) for their 96th birthday, unknown how long the deal lasts for. Both about $100 cheaper than their normal prices. I assume both are pretty much end of line stock.

You might want to correct your links.

They're prefixed with www.geekzone.co.nz (perhaps a bug?)

Pretty sure they worked last night, not sure what's gone on as it was a direct copy paste. Can't edit the OP now.

I would avoid both of them as they are very low powered, in six months time they will be so slow they will be hard to use.

Not sure if this is a new deal, but I noticed it when cross-checking cheapest laptops with 4GB on pricespy.

Not worth a new thread, so just adding to the list:
http://www.thewarehouse.co.nz/red/catalog/product/Compaq-Presario-15.6-Inch-Notebook-CQ58-304TU?SKU=1732009

Same price.
Also same drive, and RAM size as others.
Screen a little bigger (15.6") - which probably means heavier too.
Only (real) point of difference is the Pentium 2020M, which is fair bit gruntier than either the E2-2100 or Celeron N2830.
