A53E-SX1339S 15.6" i7 LAPTOP - 6GB Ram, 500GB Hard Drive - £399.00 @ Currys

MugenPowerMugenPower

**EDITED*** just posting Link to prove that this was a genuine deal.
Heres proof of my reciept (like others who posted). http://postimage.org/image/75fy1q7hj/

My first post so hope I dont offend anyone....

This laptop is supposed to be New for Spring 2012. Seems to be a decent spec laptop. I think the i7-2670 is a quad? (correct me if I'm wrong). Looking at other i7 laptops i see them with prices starting at around £500-£700 so given this is newer and 2nd gen i7 seems like a good deal to me.

    I know zilch about windows laptops as a mac user and looking to sort something for my fiance so she can work from home - this and the i5 Comet deal look really good.

    Assume as this has an i7 processor it's better than the comet deal?? [and she'll love red too.........]

    Heat

    These laptops are getting insanely cheap, paid £900 for something similar in spec for 3 years ago.
    I'd be perfect if it was 13".

    £599 at PC World?

    That price I'm tempted to say it's a misprice...

    EDIT - Yes, it's a Quad... the CPU price alone is £238... even at £600 this is quite a good deal...

    It says instore price is £599, this is a web exclusive.

    Which leads me to ask, if you reserve and collect can you still pay the £399? Reason is I have gift vouchers to spend!

    Absolutely amazing find. Have lots of heat. Already ordered this. Unfortunately ordered another ASUS i5 laptop on Comet this morning which was supposed to be good deal until this deal was posted :-)
    I want to cancel Comet order but before that I want confirmation email of this order from Currys.

    Does anyone know if Comet treats cancellation of orders appropriately and whether I can cancel it immediately or have to wait until it is delivered?

    The "web exclusive" price applies to online sales, either for home delivery or for for collect@store.

    The more I think about it, the more I DEFINITELY think it's a misprice.

    If you reserve it and they put the price up, your price is still valid - although I'm sure in the T&C's they could refuse to sell it for that price if they wanted to.

    EDIT - In short, if you reserve NOW yes you can use your gift vouchers in store, assuming they don't cancel it.
