For £575.00 you can get a machine that "ticks more boxes," the 2nd gen i7 processor is the only attractive aspect with this laptop. Makes more sense to purchase an i5 from a more respected brand with a full HD screen and dedicated graphics imo - obviously depends on your own needs, but this certainly seems to be a strange configuration.

what exactly seems to be strange configuration if may I ask...

as far as I know sandybrige architecture was designed to support GPU by CPU which means Intel HD3000 with i7 sandybridge will perform like average laptop dedicated GPU

...speaking of full HD on 15" screen as a "must have feature" - i'm not going bother to comment

Sure, but 1920x1080 can at least be considered as a very nice perk. Unless you plan on using programmes that are strongly CPU intensive then I can't see why you wouldn't go for something such as what Bo0td mentioned. I'll stay neutral, as this still could be useful.

EDIT: Forgot to add, you also have to note that in that benchmark those dedicated GPUs are pretty rubbish there.

Firstly - your quite aggresive tone you use in your comments really doesn't help people that are actually interested in this laptop. Secondly, Laptop GPUs are not rubbish in general. My GTX 460M is by no means rubbish and people have reasons for wanting to game on a laptop. I travel quite a bit and thus have a use for a gaming laptop, so your comment that "if you want to play games go for desktop PC" is unjustified and quite frankly, wrong. Regardless of what I say, you seem like quite a stubborn person and I doubt that you would admit you're wrong so I think I'll just leave it at that.

Well, as I stated in my first comment, the i7 is the attractive aspect of this laptop - it's a premium component, the rest isn't, not least the manufacturer. As you state yourself, the HD3000 is "average."

I never said the full HD screen is a "must have feature." It's certainly a nice feature if, like me, you prefer razor-sharp text.

I'd personally choose the recent 2nd gen i5 Dell XPS deals over this.

There's really no need to be so defensive. The view I offered is simply an opinion, it's ok to disagree. If it fits your needs, great (again, as I already stated.) oO

The 2nd gen i5 version of this laptop was posted here a couple of weeks ago with dedicated graphics. This laptop (the i7) is mentioned HERE That site says the laptop on Amazon has a dedicated GPU with a price of £597.80. The Amazon listing says integrated... Would be worth contacting Amazon for confirmation of the spec, because if you're interested in this laptop, it'd be worth the extra £22.83.

firstly I'm not aggressive maybe little bit sarcastic like most of people on hotukdeals

secondly laptop GPUs are rubbish in general (which means that there are exceptions to the rule)

thirdly thanks for that psychological assessment it saves me big bucks on my shrink - voted hot :)

I said the Amazon spec list was the same - the other site suggested it had a mid-range notebook GPU, the HD3000 is only competitive with "entry level" cards in synthetic tests. (Amazon spec lists are often incorrect, which is why I said it'd be worth contacting them for clarification.)

As Will29j already stated "Unless you plan on using programmes that are strongly CPU intensive then I can't see why you wouldn't go for something such as what Bo0td mentioned. I'll stay neutral, as this still could be useful."

I'm in no way disputing your claim of "cheapest I've ever seen sandybridge i7 architecture laptop, you won't find cheaper." I just believe the alternatives I mentioned represent an overall more sensible choice (again, depending on YOUR needs.)

The Dell XPS listed below is also a better option if you're intent on the 2nd gen i7... £668.99, yes it's more expensive, but it's better value for money (again, imo) and also from a better brand (arguably.)

Hi guys.

I wonder if you can help me make a decision. I am not an expert in laptops, but need to get one for very basic use and web browsing, no gaming.

I have an offer for this laptop Acer Aspire 5750 Core i7-2630QM 2nd Gen Laptop.

After going trough the conversation, I would love to hear some straight forward advise.
- Reliable
- Worth £500.00
- Get it, or keep on looking.

Would love to hear.

Thanx

Joe
