Yarmie2 has just pointed out that you can use the code MVCMAY10 to get 10% off the price which would make it £359.10, STONKING price for an i5!!!

You might even be able to get quidco of 8% on top but dont rely on it as you are using a voucher.

Here is a similar one with more RAM and bigger HD plus Quidco available. This price and spec is not that special at the minute as there are frequently deals available around that mark

Thanks but i did mention brand new,i know there are a few refurbs around for this price(dell outlet etc) but havant seen a brand new one for less than £400.

6% Qidco from HP as well!
#10
I think it is a very good deal, although it only has 3GB RAM and arguably it might be better to get an i3 with 4GB (which is slightly cheaper).
#11
Not much cheaper then anywhere else....

But if it is cheaper, even if by not much, then it's a deal - thats how this site works.

£31.92 tracked makes it £367.08 delivered for me!

That deal has expired. The reason is that the DIxons 10% voucher is no longer valid.

At this point in time, the HP deal in this thread, is the cheapest new Core i5 deal around.

Voted hot because there is no other deal right now which comes close.

How did you get 8% cashback?

I'm working out 6% cashback, which brings the total cost to £375.

The deal doesn't work, and that also had a poorer processor and was a refurb.

This is a hot deal.

Not at all. If you're really that fussed about having 4GB, upgrade it yourself for about £13
#17
Its a lot cheaper/simpler to upgrade RAM. To upgrade a CPU on a laptop is nightmare and probably not worth the trouble.

Thought it a bit strange but placed the order at 399 last night and Quidco tracking:

"£31.92 from Hewlett-Packard Tracked on 18 May 11"

I'm happy with that!
#19
Hehehe. I see.
#20
top deal, just ordered one, fingers crossed quidco works
#21
I'm looking at either getting this laptop (£375, after top cashback).

OR

get a Core i3-2310M laptop for £370 (£359 after top cashback), from dixons.

In terms of performance, they are very similar.

EDIT: Just checked and I think the i3-2310m at dixons has gone up by £30.

why might it be better to get an i3 over the i5 apart from the price??
is i3 better than i5?
#23
i5 is better.
i7 is even better.

Mine arrived Friday, nice laptop - wifey very pleased with it.

Looks good- have ordered one, thanks!

Just ordered one and got an extra 10% discount using this code MVCMAY10. Just need to see if Quidco tracks as well - listed as 8% at the moment.
#30
caved in an ordered one using the code, fingers crossed for quidco too :)

I meant it might be better to save a bit of money and get more RAM. Of course the i5 is better than the i3 though and this is an excellent deal. I voted hot!
#32
Ram is relatively cheap. You can buy a 2GB dimm for around £17.
The CPU is very hard to upgrade, so concentrate on features that you probably won't be upgrading.
#33
Could someone more knowledgeable help me regarding the integrated graphics on this processor?
What is the integrated graphics core? (Original GMA HD? / HD200?)
The HD2000 & HD3000 seem to have reasonable power for low end gaming, but the original was pretty rubbish I believe.
I know this isn't a gaming machine, but if it could play slightly older titles okay that would be useful.
Has anyone got one of these? What games can it play at reasonable frame rates?

Here's the info I have so far:
i5-xxxM (eg 460M) = 1st gen (Arrandale) + Intel HD? integrated graphics
i5-xxxxM (eg 2520M) = 2nd gen (Sandy Bridge) + Intel HD3000 integrated graphics

Loads of links and i'm none the wiser:-

Intel® Core™ i5-460M Processor spec:
http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=50179
Intel, formerly Arrandale:
http://ark.intel.com/ProductCollection.aspx?codeName=32724
"Processor Graphics" / "Intel® HD Graphics 3000" / "Integrated Graphics":
http://ark.intel.com/ProductCollection.aspx?familyId=43483
Sandy bridge procs:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Bridge
Core i5 procs:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i5_microprocessors

Cheers, Mark.

EDIT: It has the GMA HD graphics core - pants.

The original line of Core i5 CPUs are capable of playing older games, but as you stated, the graphics performance isn't very good.

If you do use this laptop for gaming, you will have to turn the game settings down.

The newer Sandy Bridge generation of Core i5 CPUs offer superior graphics performance to the older Arandale line.

If games are important to you, then I would probably look for a laptop with a dedicated video card inside it. You will have to pay a little more, but at least you are guaranteed to be able to use the laptop for (moderate) gaming.

It really does depend on how much of a gamer you are.

Of course, if you are serious gamer, ditch the laptop and get a real PC. :p
#35
can confirm MVCMAY10 gives 10% off
#36
not sure why this is expired. its still available. has anyone got quidco tracked that used the 10% code?
#37
This is still not expired. Just ordered 2 (one for my friend). Cracking deal for a good built i5! Thanks OP!
Also, thanks for the code Yarmie2!!!
#38
Quidco also tracked! Bargain for £331...!!
