I thought I would wait to post this until I received the laptop because I couldnt believe what a good deal this was (IMHO). Received yesterday and I am extremely impressed so far. My old laptop went pear shaped and looked long and hard for a replacement, looking for a decent intel processor. Here it is i5 and what an amazing price. It is very hard to find an i3 processor at this price let alone an i5. I am not an expert by any means but done some good old fashioned research and the intel 'i' processors seem to be the most popular new style processors but can be extremely expensive.
Got the price down to £396.24 via 'Quidco' with a current discount of '5% off all orders over £199 plus free delivery + 3% cashback at Currys'. You pay £408.49 and then there is the cashback of £12.25 which has been posted on my account.
This is my first posting and I find this a great site and felt it was time to repay so I hope someone finds this useful. As I said, I done lots of research so be kind to me as this is my first posting.
Have fun - Mooster ;-)

More info, thanks to others, as follows:-

250GB Hard Drive
3GB DDR3 Memory
DVD-RW rewriter
Black Case
15.6 Widescreen
Microsoft's Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
Built in mic & webcam

Seems to running relatively quietly and sorry about previous posting error as didnt realise that Quidco was not supposed to be posted, newbie!!.

Graphics are onboard with built in graphics processor and more details are at 'expert reviews' on the following link, find these very helpful.

Well its back from yesterday, I'm guessing that stock is hot and replaced regularly, note that Quidco has changed to 'Quidc5'. Such a good deal, thought I would repost it.
Apologies if this is an incorrect thing to do, but its good!.

Used to be dire.

^^^ What he said. You'll have to amend the price, but still a good price for a i5 lappy.

Answering thesnowman86`s question (sorry cant personal message), to me it seems very quiet, I have both desktop and laptop running and I can hear desktop and just a light fan sound on laptop, but certainly doesnt annoy me.
#9
Dedicated gfx or onboard?
#10
Integrated graphics card alas.
#11
Good find :)

The i5-430M isn't massively more powerful than the i3-330 so some folks might prefer some of the i3 deals with slightly more ram or bigger HDD; but this is a HOT deal regardless.

Nice price if you don't need any fancy graphics, this one isn't for gamers:

"Its score of 10.7fps in Call of Duty 4 indicates that no amount of tweaking will make the latest 3D shooters run smoothly"

I'm holding off for a decent spec i5 with an ATI Radeon onboard at around the £500 mark.


Most people are not buying a laptop for gaming so the graphics are fine on this for most uses.Laptops have never been great for gaming whatever the spec.My only problem with this deal is it's from DSG group which means they'll be more interested in selling you an extended warranty for as much as you pay for the actual laptop and when you actually need to use the warranty it's about as useful as a fart in a wetsuit.

Integrated graphics card alas.

Still fine for HD playback - and will give a longer battery life if web-broswing and HD video playback is all you are after...

Price should be listed as £408.49 using Currys discount code of QUIDC5 - you just can't include the Quidco cashback part in the headline price.
#15
Thanks Brookheather, will get their in the end lol!

Thanks Brookheather, will get their in the end lol!


Also worth including the Currys discount code in your description (in large letters) otherwise people will think the laptop has gone up in price and expire this deal.
#17
Gotcha brookheather, thanks again. This is hard work lol.
#18
Great price for an i5 based laptop. Hot!
#19
Brilliant price for an i5, just a shame its a big and heavy 15.6" system. I'm in the market for a 13"/ 14" i5 to replace my MacBook but they are all a good £200 above this.
#20
Nice spec for the price. Does it have a built in webcam? Thanks.
#21
Uhmmm I don't trust Advent, I had one in the past a Pentium 4 and the laptop was so hot that you could not have it on your laps for more than 15min. The fan was so loud that was unreal.

Hopefully this one is not like that, but Advent really put me off and having an integrated card does not help. Probably better to have an I3 with a decent graphics card. Not sure how games will look in this machine.

OP if by any chance you have any games that you could install and let us know how it goes.
#22
Yes it does have a built in mic and webcam.
#23
Just went on currys website, it says sienna 500 unavailable. Has this sold out?
#24
Just went on their and looks like its gone but this was the same on Sunday night, showed as sold out and Monday morning was back again. I'm guessing that these don't hang about very long but I would definitely check again in a day or two.

Good advice - I hope folks who are interested find them in stock again.

Looking at the £599 price tag on the Advent 700 Currys suggest as an alternative (same spec but with an i7-620) just highlights what a good deal this was.

Just looking at PC World and Dixons - and of course it's now out of stock there also. A big surprise (to me) was that it's also gone oos at Pixmania - I never realised they were part of the Currys, Dixons, PC-World group...

Anyone actually buy this laptop? Would appreciate any feed back on it. I've order a refurb one and am keen to know if you guys had any problems to look out for.
