    Not bad; CPU is a bit slow but it has an HDMI socket.

    You're probably not aware of the DELL XPS M1330, for which they had to extend the warranty, as the overheating killed the graphics card.

    Total after Cashback = £332.10-£10.06 = £322

    That'll do nicely for livingroom/garden(I'vehooked upextension to garden)

    HP 15.6" LED/4GB/HDMI laptop for £322 and Tesco Clubcard Points as ordered on Tesco CC
    giving me extra protection should it burn on me but I know several with HPs without such problems

    Not a powerhouse but I could not find better @ £300ish certainly not with 4gb mem and hdmi
    Only worry is shared gfx but i can DSR refund in dixons on high street if that or anything else annoys me but it won't be used for games.

    Currys and PC World have this on as well but no 10% off code which is a shame unless they do but I can't find it, otherwise Dixons is still cheapest

    I'll still be keeping dsr in mind in qwwk though should something better come up in the mean time

    I was considering cancelling my HP G62-b28SA order @ £328 for the OPs HP G62-b50SA this :

    WPrime1024 Benchmarks from http://www.notebookcheck.net
    £328 HP HP G62-b28SA AMD as I detail above:
    AMD Athlon™ II X2 P340 WPrime 1024= 1108

    OPs Laptop CPU:
    Intel Corei3 350M = WPrime 1024= 923

    Higher number the better)

    It would seem for £60 more on the ops instead of:

    Musicrab's:
    http://www.dixons.co.uk/gbuk/hp-g62-b28sa-15-6-laptop-white-08702313-pdt.html
    Which I got for £328


    You get HD dedicated graphics (seen3 year old integrated intel gfx do HD video fine) and more graphics memory from shared RAM (would only benefit games ime)

    Seems to me of the two laptops £60 buys you very little improvement on OPs laptop vs:
    http://www.dixons.co.uk/gbuk/hp-g62-b28sa-15-6-laptop-white-08702313-pdt.html

    Also I expected intel to kicks AMD's ****, seems £50ish is the premium for going Intel over AMD, and at this price points with no real tangible benefit.

    Well, I got Dell N5010 with 4GB ram, i5, 500gb and HDMI for 325 from Dell outlet. Came brand new.

    Sure Dell outlet is not for everone, but I wouldn't touch HP with a stick after failures I had with older models and they are a lot better build then laptops these days.

    Forgot to mention that last time I ordered lappy from Dixons group they didn't even bother to inform me that they are out of stock and will not delivered. Kept money for 2 weeks as well.

    Maybe a good price but huge NO for me
