    Well, I hope they stock more of these than the do (did) of the prime. I had great difficulty getting hold of a Prim back in March.
    All but one store refused to order one for me. The one that did order took 2 weeks to fulfill it and their communications were very poor.
    According to the reviews I have read this looks like a cracking device, same processor as the Prime, slightly lesser quality display and lower capacity battery, but could be around £150 cheaper. Sounds like a good deal to me.

      As an update to this, I was in my local PC-World superstore yesterday, still no Primes on display or in stock. This doesn’t really bode well for the 300.
      Which is a real shame, I love my Prime, I use it every day on my 1.5hour commute to work to watch a movie, amazing screen, the super IPS mode makes the screen visible even when sun is flooding through the windows :)
      My laptop is sitting in the corner gathering dust since the arrival of the prime.
      Unless of course they have knocked the Prime on the head so that people are forced to take the Infinity?
