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 ;-)

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!.
