          I'd like to know what sort of spec that £5400 computer is? I can't think of much to put in it that would knock it above £3000 and we are talking silly things like triple GFX cards all water cooled and physics cards etc to get it that high...

            Only £5,400? Bloody pauper couldn’t afford one of these, a bit excessive for the odd game of counterstrike me thinks.
            Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

                I never knew such poverty existed. A sofa bed? Why didn't you just buy a flat with enough bedrooms? Cheapskate.

                  Ok here it is moved into my flat 1 year ago in the last few months purchased:

                  bought 1 x £6,600 bed
                  bought 1 x £5,300 sofa
                  bought 1 x £5,400 computer
                  bought 1 x £3,000 sofa bed
                  bought 5 x £5,000 (total) chairs

                  I have the receipts for all of these items.

                  So I called Nationwide this Saturday morning asking to see whether or not I would have to extend my cover and/or declare these items as luxury expensive items so that their full amount would be covered and not only the first £1,000 of each item.

                  The woman I spoke to who actually dealt with Home Insurance only was totally clueless, she didn't seem to know whether or not my existing £21,000 insurance amount (which I want to extend) will even cover these items at all or only up to £1,000 on each item or for the full amount.

                  I would assume that you simply designate these items as luxury items which are over £1,000 in value and insure them individually (as I already have done with an item I through away 2 months ago) but she didn't seem to have any idea !

                  She fobbed me off basically and I am cheesed off.

                  So in your wisdome do you have any good recommendations for an home insurance company that knows what its doing and can actually insure home furniture / electrical items that are up to £7,000 ????

                  AXA insurance are they any good ?

                  thanks in advance

                    I think that I can understand the 1000 quid mattress (mine cost 250 pounds and all it is is a roll of foam, albeit a high quality roll of foam).

                    Its the 4 and half grand for the rest I don't get.

                      WTF?? Only 2Gb memory and 1 GFX Card????

                      I have more memory in my box... and I have the same main hard drives and my box was well under £1000.

                      I can't belive anybody would buy that....
