This "laptop" won't be for most, but it's a real monster machine. A true desktop replacement. (20.1" Screen and a back breaking 7kg!). Just see the specs below! I ordered this yesterday with a 5% Student Discount Code, 4% Quidco and 1% Capital One Cashback, then I noticed today that Play.com have slashed a whopping 20% off the RRP. I can't find it anywhere less than RRP, or anywhere else that you can get Quidco. I cancelled and re-ordered at the new price and I'll really enjoy spending the extra £320 saved!

Due for release tomorrow (11/02/08)

Hot voted - no reason to cold vote because you can't afford (like me) to buy it...

Hot, good price with a Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 (2.5 GHz) around!

Any info anywhere on the 8900m gts?
Its not even on the nvidia site

Good price for a compact desktop computer with built in UPS.

looks a better deal than an imac :-D

That's a typo. All the other websites selling this model have the graphics card as a 8800GTS.

According to this website, it's the 4th best mobile graphics card around at the moment.

The cclonline says that this is installed withe the 32 bit version of vista which is known to recognise only 3GB.
Surely if they're going to put in that much ram in an machine of that spec they would have made the effort to put in the 64 bit version?

Not everyone is ready for 64 bit yet. This laptop is touted as an "entertainment" notebook and therefore naturally has the 32 bit version. However, having the extra RAM means that if you wanted to install the 64 bit version at a later date you'd reap the benefit.

:pirate: CJ :pirate:
#12
Yea, but surely it should be pre-installed for those who do want to reap the benifits! Surely that makes more sense! I just don't see the point in putting in OS in a machine with more ram than it can handle.
#13
this is a monster machine! incredible specs for a 'laptop':?
#14
This is a very good deal. Voted hot. As mentioned before the graphics card is an 8800M GTS which is also stated on the play.com website further down. It also mentions the graphics card has 512MB dedicated ram and 1791 MB shared Video memory (shared with the 4GB system ram). Therefore the 4GB system ram will be put to good use if you choose to play some graphic intensive games (3GB Vista 1GB available for use for the graphics card.

Might as well buy a desktop!!

Its not about effort...

Its about compatability!

You obviously don't have a clue, so how about asking WHY something is that way, instead of drawing a conclusion as to why when you don't have a clue what your talking about! Then asking a question based on the assumption that you wrongly made in the first place!

If "compatability" is still open to too much mis-interpretation, then how about picturing joe bloggs trying to install drivers for stuff that need to be designed specifically for vista? (as required in 64bit edition). The odd program that might not work on it?

Its the sort of customer service problems they can do without.

"effort" indeed.... :thinking:

...Yeah after all, they're much easier to lug onto a train to get a couple of hours work done
#18
Haha, at 7kg I don't see many people taking this with them on the train
#19
Amazing specs. Except for one thing. It's HD DVD. Pity it's not Blu-Ray. At least £200 of this machines cost is going in to the HD-DVD.
#20
I bet it can double as a hob.

How do you get the 5% student discount on play.com?
#22
It may be a good price but who is this laptop aimed at? People who've ordered, or who think its hot, why would you buy this over a cheaper combo of a desktop and a £250 quid lappy with it?

I think this laptop is aimed at people like myself (a uni student) who live at uni half the year and at home the other half. Doesn't make sense to get a desktop as would have to leave that at home or at uni, thus not being able to use it half the time. Doesn't make sense to get a cheapo laptop to take home to use, as its then wasted when at uni (if that's where the desktop is).

This is damn hot, and if I played more games these days that what would be sitting on my desk - instead, I have a more portable (but pretty well spec'd) 15" sony vaio laptop connected to a 26" hd monitor :-) . When I go home, I just leave the 26" monitor, but have all my docments/photos/music with me in a convenient package.
#24
One thing though - shame the monitor is not full (1080) hd, as the hd-dvd seems somewhat wasted...

Was just going to say that the resolution seems a little low for the spec.
#26
I'd expect 64bit windows if I bought a machine with this much ram

The average joe bloggs is more likely to buy a £300 laptop and probably wont be installing drivers too often

Back in the day (i.e., 10 years ago) we used to take our tower PCs to and from university with big bulky CRTs. 26"? 17" was high end. Never mind the fact that it did one task - being a PC - today's PCs are also TVs and media centres.

Today's students have it easy - LCD monitors, slim-line PCs, etc. A desktop computer (maybe in a Shuttle SFF case) is far more versatile, cheaper, and you can set your options as desired.

I agree. You could get something much better and much cheaper and it probably won't be much less portable. Being so big and heavy this "laptop" will find itself being left permanently at home so it's pointless for most. But each to his own.
#29
Fantastic laptop, wish I had the money! :thumbsup: Voted hot

You could build an amazing pc for £1300 :thumbsup:

I find a Finger Print Reader indispensable, don't you?

That has nothing at all to do with this deal? Can you find this computer cheaper? If not then you have to vote hot.
#33
Laptop ??. It's almost half a metre wide :p
#34
How are u guys going to carry this. Most laptop bags are catered for 17" below??

But if I post a deal that says I'll sell my poo's for £500 and you can't find my poo any cheaper does that make that a hot deal? :whistling:

This is a desktop replacement so it has VERY limited portability. So for most people a desktop is a better purchase and will be much cheaper therefore this is a cold deal.

You just don't get it do you. I do wonder how some people get by in every day life with such limited understanding.

This thing would burn your knackers off, or crush your legs. Laptop it is not.

That small Dell Vostro unit for under £300 on the main page is a far better deal for any student. Sure, you have to add on a £150 - £200 monitor/TV, but it's still less than half the price.

I paid about £1200 for my computer 10 years ago for university. It was painful, but that is what a cheap PC cost back then. If you're spending that today, you have your priorities wrong or simply don't care about debt.

A lot of people are missing the point here. The post says, right at the beginning, "This "laptop" won't be for most, but it's a real monster machine. A true desktop replacement."

It's portability is questionable, yes, but the specs are massive and the price is good. Individual suitability is subjective.

This machine is perfect for me because I work abroad half the year and can take this with me. My traveling is minimal, about 6 times a year, so I won't have to lug it around too much.
I plan to buy one of those "record bag" style bags to carry it in, rather than a laptop case.
