I don't know how a rain check differs, but I suspect a rain check is when they just put you onto a list and you don't pay until the goods cone in.
robbyp: Similar quailty and specs would Usually mean the same brand, but a different model. Disputes tribunal costs about $40 so minimal if a few people pool together. However I am sure that HN management would resolve any disatisfaction before it got to that. As we don't yet have the facts on what is actually going to be provided it s still speculation but the product does also need to be provided within a reasonable time period. An entire month does sound extreme.
vinnieg: It's speculation of the model number yeah.
If it's a 1005HA it'd be awesome
But as the Harvey Norman NZ page says "they have sourced an Asus with the same specs, delivery expected first week of Feb. "? Just got asked about it via DM. Thx"

robbyp: vinnieg I know someone who took a company to the disputes tribunal on the basis that the invoice was a contract and they won. In that vase it was for a brand of bed where the retailer had broken their relationship with their supplier so they were unable to source the product through that supplier. They were required to source the bed from another supplier.
