Good deal, after a laptop for Christmas but I think the graphics lets it down.
Heat added, the reviews for this laptop are good.
#2
Recently got the same laptop from Argos but with a T4300 cpu (says T4200 on website, but is definitely T4300), 4GB ram and Windows7 - otherwise identical I assume. Very happy with it, well built machine as you'd expect from Asus. Argos one was similarly priced £399.99 but we needed interest free so hence buying from Argos. I was actually surprised to get a decent deal!

Nice laptop, although I think I actually prefer mine as the processor is almost as good according to all the benchmarks I've seen and it has windows 7 out of the box. Hot deal all the same.
#3
Been looking at this laptop and also the argos one and don't know which is best.

@Mike73

When you got the one form Argos was win 7 already installed or was it the upgrade option?

Windows 7 is pre-installed. I don't think there's much to choose between the 2 performance wise. The eBuyer one has a slightly more powerful cpu (I think), a bigger hdd and lower price. Argos one has more ram, windows 7 and probably a slightly better battery life (I think the cpu is lower power but could be wrong) Personally I prefer the Argos one, but there's not much between them. The face recognition logon is pretty cool!

What is this i haven't seen any mention of this anywhere? Only thing i can see is the fingerprint reader.

Bit of a gimmick to be honest, I'll probably turn it off soon, it actually takes longer to recognise my face than it would to type my password, but for now it's cool!:thumbsup:

This is on the Argos one, don't know about the eBuyer one.
#7
not sure why this is not hotter the a core 2 laptop for under £400 really is great

The upgrade from vista to win 7 is a snip and you can use anyones disk to do it then wait for the number u get 3 month trial

Thank for that info i think the wife will find it really amusing. Although i don't know if it will recognise her first thing in the morning :whistling: lol

@Mike73

What was the actual full model number of the one you got from Argos? The Ebuyer one is X5DIJ-SX087C is yours different?

I'm in work at the moment so don't have it with me to check, but it's this one

Just note that the description is incorrect and it is a T4300 cpu and not the T4200 as described. If you want the full number I'll have a look later.

EDIT: OK just got home it's X5DIJ sx181v if that helps!
#11
Thanks mike i will take a look and see what i can find on that model.:thumbsup:

Can't find any info on that model, wonder if it is and argos only model?

Sorry ezypc for posting in this thread but it seems like no-one else is

Probably because there have been many laptop deals on recently at around the same price, featuring equivalent CPUs but (far) better GPUs.

my computer is falling apart. dont know much about pc laptop or specs. so would this play crysis to the max, or anyone recommend anything except a million pound alienware? cheers in advance.

blanka... no. NO laptop would play crysis to the max... even the massive 3000 pound rock laptops struggle decent frame rates with crysis at 1650x1080 on max.

This laptop is NOT FOR ANY GAMING..

it will probably play football manager just.

the xma4500 intel chip is only for hd playback

The cpu is industry average at the moment, until the intel i5 chips reach laptops.

its just a basic laptop that can play hd quality images, and do some multitasking

Modestly good all-round laptop, though nothing special for the price. (and it's missing a few peripherals that you take for granted in todays laptops; bluetooth, wireless-n)
#18

Excellent buy for the money - includes discrete RADEON HD 4570, so will even handle basic gaming.

Of course not, because Laptops that can cope with gaming are :

There's a reason the Alienware machines cost as much as they do - if you want to play modern games, properly, then £400 is completely the wrong end of the market.

just need a 4gb ram laptop win 7 250gb hdd decent gfx card to play sf4 hdmi out and blu ray. £400 mark please
#21
If you want to play some casual gaming at medium levels, would suggest this an option.

No HDMI though or Bluray.

I was fully aware of the 4570 gpu; hence why I described it as a modestly good all-rounder.

For the same price (£20 less with quidco) you can get the Fujitsu Pi3560 I posted a few days ago.

Which has:
Same CPU,
+Significantly better GPU. (~25% faster)
Same HDD,
+The integrated peripherals that the Dell is missing (Wireless-N & bluetooth)
-Worse battery. (~50% smaller capacity)

sf4? Street Fighter IV? :thinking:

How about this little beauty for £310 (+£20 P&P)

Refurb.

CPU: T7200 (roughly comparable to the more modern T4300)
GPU: GF Go 7900 GS 256mb (~6000 in 3dmark2005)
Display: 17" 1920x1200 (therefore full-hd)
RAM: 2.5gb
HDD: 40gb (lmao!)
OS: Vista Home Premium 32bit
Peripherals: wireless-n, bluetooth, firewire, etc - this would have been a top-spec laptop when it was first released.
Other: Has a German QWERTZ keyboard!

Definitely a PC for the tickerer; as it'd need a new HDD, keyboard fixing, and Vista replacing with something usable.
You could also replace the DVD burner with a bluray drive to take advantage of that huge screen res.
Though there is the worry of the battery's condition.

After above tweaks it'd still be sub-£400.

I bet if you phoned them up, you'd be able to get them to give you free P&P.

Does it recognise super handsome guy? if the answer is no, I won't buy it. :)

This will do the trick if you're into gaming - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/654937-REG/ASUS_G51J_A1_G51J_A1_Notebook_Computer.html - but you'll need to source a Blu-ray drive yourself.

£400 mark please

Erm...
#30
This one is kinda nice;
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/169125

CPU is a bit weak, but the GPU is fairly good. Quite amazing that for £360 you can get a laptop capable of running Crysis. (though admittedly it'd be in low detail, and wouldn't manage much above 30fps)

The only feature missing that might turn you off is the lack of an HDMI port.
Oh, and it comes with Vista, so you need to factor in an extra £20 if you want Windows7.

Btw, how come people are getting away with posting ebuyer deals?
I thought ebuyer had been banned due to self-promotion?

-Weak CPU (while the RM-74 is the better of AMD's budget laptop CPUs, it still scores significantly less than the entry level core 2 duo T4300.
-Weak GPU, While better than the integrated Intel rubbish you find in many laptops, the Radeon 3200 is still weak compared to GPUs that can be found in other laptops at that price point.
-Vista; you'll need to shell out another ~£20 for Win7.
-No wireless-N or bluetooth.

The best thing about it is also the least important; the 500gb HDD.

Better deals elsewhere, for instance the laptop I linked to immediately before your post!
CPU is equivalent,
+GPU is much better,
+Wireless-N (but still no bluetooth)
-HDD is half the size
-3gb ram instead of 4gb. (though as both laptops have 32bit Vista on them, the extra gb was mostly going to be unused anyway!)

A good machine; better CPU, but slightly inferior GPU.
It has an HDMI port which can be useful if you want to hook it up to an awkward HDTV. (For isntance, I have a Toshiba 1080p TV that won't accept anything over 1024x768 via the VGA port)
Still 32bit Vista though; try and find one with equivalent spec. but Windows 7 (ideally 64bit). It'll save you £20 (+the hassel of having to upgrade)

It really depends what your usage priorities are, as to which machine is superior. (though personally, i'd lean toward my suggestion because it's £40 less)

If battery life (and thus portability) is unimportant, but you want to play games, and you can stretch to ~£460 I'd suggest the deal I posted a few days ago.

Does the laptop in the first post have bluetooth as it doesn't seem to say anywhere but when you go on the asus website it has a bluetooth driver in the download section.
