This week's Bunch of Fives from IT-minds.com got ambushed by Amazon.co.uk.

IT-Minds' featured lead offer - 20 per cent off the Linux Administration Handbook - looked generous, until compared with Amazon.co.uk. So £31.99 on IT-Minds plays £24.57 on Amazon. What would you choose?

Amazon gouged the discount even deeper to an unfeasibly generous 38 per cent. This is, we understand an unusually large discount from Amazon - maybe it reflects the fact that The Linux Administration Handbook is Huge and author Eva Nemeth is Yoda.

We alerted IT-Minds to Amazon's pricing, and this morning promptly dropped its pants another 20 per cent. So guys, the new price is £23.99. This limited time offer finishes on Friday evening. Grab it while you can. ®
