Bought. Can't wait for this to arrive. Some excellent reviews, maybe apart from the battery life, but you can't have everything.

Heated and repped accordingly.

i have about 450 burning a hole in my pocket for a new laptop. It will mainly be used by the wife as I have a work one. I was just about to either get the HP6735s from ebuyer or take advantage of this weeks offers from Dell - could get 1545 with similar spec to the HP.
Want it to be good spec, not that she'd be interested and look good, which she will be interested in.
Anyones input appreciated - brain starting to ache!
I like this as I could hook it up to the plasma.
I am just nervous about the whole 'refurb' thing. Can someone with experience say if they come with recovery disks and manuals etc.
Bought a Sony Vaio from Tesco's originally (NR38s) £399 but they advertised it as having a webcam and it didn't. It also had 3 glaringly obvious dead pixels that really bugged me so that has gone back.

Do not worry about the 'Refub' I have had 3x lappys from pcworld/dixons/currys in the past and all come with 12 months warrenty,

All 3 have been great, never put a foot wrong.
Im tempted sell my older lappy and get this Higher spec one. :)

Good deal voted hot, really tempted to get this. For those who already have this laptop whats the quality of the picture like for watching Blu-Rays on the laptop screen? I know to get the benefit of blu-ray you need to hook it up to a HDTV but I travel alot and wonder how good the quality is for the laptop screen itself.

Please ignore the gaming laptop part in the title, the desktop HD3650 cost £25 brand new so in no way can this be called a gaming laptop, maybe 2 years ago it might be called that.

This is a BUDGET gaming laptop (as title says), and as reviews have said, can handle most games reasonably well, therefore, imo, is a good BUDGET gaming laptop. (you are not gonna get a lot for £450 in a laptop)

For a laptop @ £429 this would wipe the floor with integrated graphics, don't compare desktop GPUs where even a low-end one would destroy most laptop GPUs.

Looks like the 3650 is comparable to a 9600M GS which although not the top isn't as bad as you're making out. Anyway if you want to play games buy a desktop!

I am not a gamer

so am I best getting

HP6735s Ebuyer £419 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/158887

or Dell 1545 - using discount codes can get Core2duo, 4GB, 320GB, Webcam, bluetooth for about £450.

this one, or are there any others I should be considering.

Apologies requesting someone 'hold my hand' but I really seem to be going round and round in circles trying to decide :?

Bought a 'refurb' from Dixons last week. It was absolutely as new, even to the extent of having to wait the hour whilst eveything installed. You get a non-branded box, but all the accessories are present. I didn't get any manuals or installation CD's, but that wasn't an issue for us. Most of them are available on line if you need them and these days the laptops set themselves up. Any issues you can always come back on here:thumbsup:
#17
Ok so assuming the 'refurb' thing is no issue then what laptop would bods advise I go for?

Considerations mentioned in previous post. :roll:

Would not find any other laptops with graphics as good as this and cheap as this . Would play most new games ok with maybe reducing settings a bit also if you just using laptop screen for gaming then then this laptop graphics are well up to gaming if you are using it on large screen why get laptop for gameing then? thats only time would need better graphics card bargain voted hot great gaming laptop
#20
As others have said this is a great deal (voted hot by me) if you want a laptop to play the odd 3D game / watch HD content etc but if you don't plan to do this you can get away with spending less

Good price have bought refurbishments from currys in the past covered with a 12 month warranty 95% of the time no problems.

If you are not into the gaming, and are not going to need the Blu-Ray drive, go for the Dell.:thumbsup:

Hey I bought this laptop from Dixons as a refurb a couple of months ago for £455 and thought that was a great deal. Comes with a 12 month warranty, but in the box you'll only get the laptop and the charger. As soon as you get it create recovery disks (easy process, Acer have their own software pre-installed for it) and then use pcdecrapifier to get rid off all the **** on there! But don't get rid of the Acer Arcade Deluxe! I did and spent ages trying to figure out how to play Blu-Rays :roll:.

I personally think it's one of the best looking laptops out there, as far as games go all I've got to installing is Theme Hospital which is at least 10 years old lol. Heard it plays COD4 with no problems so might try it out. I don't regret buying it at all, the Cine touch thingy works well - although when I first tried it out it stopped working! All you have to do is take the battery out and put it back in and it works - haven't had any problems with it since.

Good luck with your purchase, at £429 I think it's a great deal.

Well I've plumped for this one - with DHL somewhere so we'll see what turns up.

All the reviews seem very positive and I must admit I do like the look of it. The Dell looks nice in the 'flesh' too (minimalist) but the high gloss finish around the keyboard is just asking for trouble - fingerprint city!!!!

Decent deal too £429.99 plus topcashback at 4% (£17.20 which is already being tracked)

plus I'll claim the VAT back through the business £56.09 so end up splashing out about £357 on a very nice laptop :)
#26
Have also just plumped for this, will let you know the results!
#27
Got mine today

Unmarked box - looks in good nick, Laptop, Battery and power cable. No instructions or anything else in there.

Left it at lunch running Vista.

See what happens when I get home. Will keep you posted.

Hi all

I have been following this for a few days now and it seems that this is a good offer. I currently have an old dell inspiron 8500 ( I paid £1500 for it 6 years ago!!!)

can anyone who has one let me know how good it is, I normally only use it at home on side of chair and surf the net, play poker, and download movies... is it worth me getting??

any help greatly appreciated

thanks in advance:roll:
#29
just to let you know this code runs out tonight.

Had a play on it last night and first impressions are very good.

It looks great - a really smart looking piece of hardware. Good build quality, excellent display.

It is quick and I am trying to uninstall some of the software it comes pre-loaded with. Done the recovery disks - it prompts you to do this when you crank it up initially.

Next is the task of copying all the data on old laptop to this one. Outlook 2003 - anyone?

Awaiting my 2.5m Hdmi cable (from 7dayshop) and will try the blu-ray on my panny plasma. Oh yeah .... i'll have to buy a blu-ray film first too. Will keep an eye out for a bargain on HUKD!

The wife even liked the media control but not as much as me and the kids do!!!!!! Son just kept playing with the volume control....lol

It is fairy large and heavy so possibly not ideal for armchair surfing but thats what these new (eyestrain!) notebooks are for, yeah?
#31
got mine this morning... power up, no operating system found.

rang around for about an hour, pass the parcel stylee. got bored, opened the thing up and the hdd wasnt connected up! connected it and put some paper inside to stop the hdd moving about and everything looks dandy :) good job i'm techie! they wanted it returning.
#32
Thank bored accountant

I have a very old dell that is 15.4, so it fits on side of armchair (swedish arms, the sofa that is... very wide)

would you recommend this then, is it a HD screen
#33
It is a 16" 1366x768 but it will output 1080P via the HDMI if you need to. I got one and I have to say I'm very impressed for the price (I used the £30 off and got the £17.20 Topcashback as well). Now I've removed all the **** and upgraded it to Vista Ultimate it is almost there.

Thanks mooosey!
#34
i downloaded the user guide above (thanks for that), and mine is actually at the depot awaiting collection (wasn't in for delivery). it sounds like it has a lot of stuff. presume the manual is for a whole range, and only certain features come with it, right...? otherwise it sounds far too good to be true?
#35
http://www.laptopreviews.org.uk/acer-laptops/acer-aspire-6920g-gemstone-blue-notebook/

is it this one that they are offering, I get confused with the currys info page as it says it is a 16" HD screen, also does it has fingerprint read, etc.
I am keen to buy this but don't want to be disappointed. Like i said I payed £1500 quid for a dell inspiron 8500 6 years ago and it is still going strong, and don't know whether to pay the extra and get the 8930g....Help

thanks in advance

also anyone want to buy the dell 8500 lol
#36
does it have a built in tv tuner as per the reviews
#37
Can anyone shed some light on what exactly the Blu Ray Combo Drive is? Does it read and write both blu ray and dvd?
#38
Juat ordered, thanks
