I bought one of these on Friday as the price was absolutely fantastic for what you get, as I was looking for a decently priced GAMING Laptop and the 9600M GT (with 1Gb memory) plays most of today's games fairly well and movies were very nice on the HD screen (I bought it mostly for Warcraft though).
The graphics card ranks at 43 on this table http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html
and the processor at 58 http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Processors-Benchmarklist.2436.0.html
So if you know of another deal, please take a look at the charts and see if it beats this machine, which I don't think it will in terms of price to value.

Only complaint would be the time it took to boot up after you shut down (took about 30seconds), so I normally leave it on standby now.
It may show as "out of stock" in a lot of places but look at a few other locations a bit further out and you might get luck (I know Hounslow and Hayes still have some in stock).
