I'm pretty sure many of us have come across some laudable, laughable & weird things.

Still trying to fathom this one out......

The middle one is obviously different. I can't figure out a difference between the first and third though. One of them might be a misprint.

first one has one more word in the description, likely the third one has some of the description in unicode so it takes more bytes to store on disk ...

Of course it has a different rating as well ...

Nope, found out. One has to dig into the products themselves to find out the difference. They are both the same cpu, however, the £209 one comes with Liquid cooling.

Think that Net Retailers ought to make this known on the main page not further in.

That would explain the price difference.
