The Semperon cpu is only single core however this is still a more powerful cpu than most netbooks and all you need for web browsing/email/word processing/watching dvd's etc so perfect for students and home use. Seems most other places are selling these for £340+

(This is my first post of a deal so apologies if i've got anything wrong!)

you cant if you are uk resident. the buyer will need to have lived in uk for less than a year and you will have to prove that at airport to get aVAT refund.

Hi Sp0oner,

Great find. Can you let us know what store and what exact model number it is? There are quite a few CQ61's in the range. We are thinking that its the CQ61-312SA

Thanks

Yeh defo. They said they sold out of all the compaqs ages ago. The HD4200 sold it for me =[ oh well
#17
Sorry if places are sold out, as not seen it on here didn't know it would be well known about. In Maidstone they have stacks of the boxes on the shelf although I know that doesn't mean they have as many out the back.

Read your comment on my mobile on the way home! was getting ready for a fight till I just read the bit at the bottom were u said "just kidding".
Had to make a thirty mile round trip to pick these up def not for eBay before anyone else says anything. Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone heading to Stratford upon Avon that there was def one left. For me the hard part will be getting my money back off my bro and sis hope they appreciate it. Great post heat and rep.
#32
Nice deal. Doubt they are to get anymore stock in, but I would like to get one for my dad.

The ATI HD 4200 graphics can decode flash (in beta) and HD movies without much issues.

Voted hot ;)

Lol, sorry. Can't go wrong at £247 each that's for sure! Plus, if they don't pay up then you really can eBay them! :)

Strange that 3 people all need a laptop at the same time. Cant really NEED them on a constant basis. Hence maybe should have bought 1 or 2 better quality ones rather than 3 low spec laptops for £750...Might has well have shared a macbook. Haha
