Went to Comet and showed them this deal and they were surprised as the A8 processor is usually for laptops over £600.
The dual graphics also have good reviews, I won't play games on my laptop so I don't need a high-end video card.
For the price, there is no laptop to match the spec of this thing. It may be discontinued but it will serve anyone for a very long time.

PC World/Currys/Dixons were selling these last month for £420 (brand new) but ran out of stock.
EDIT: Dixons (who partly owns Pixmania) currently have it in stock for £399 - click here for the link

Extra features that I like are the small LED lights on the Caps lock key and the Wifi key which turns on when in use. Much better than my previous laptop where they are placed somewhere you have to look for to see if it's on or not. The touchpad is dual touch, you can use 2 fingers to scroll the page up/down or pinch to zoom in/out (see video link at the bottom of this post). There is also an indicator to see if it's on and a double tap on the corner turns it on/of which is very convenient for people who type a lot.

Dealing with Pixmania was excellent in my experience.
Here's mine after covering it with vinyl stickers to protect for scratches:

According to Compare-Processors.com: The AMD’s A8-3520M bumps up the base and turbo clock of the A8-3500M by 100 MHz and should give you 5% to 7% CPU performance improvement, making it more competitive against the Intel’s Sandy Bridge (2nd gen) Core i3 processor to great extent and to Core i5 to some extent. The A8-3520M comes under the Llano APU group and has integrated graphics that outperforms the Intel’s integrated HD Graphics in Sandy bridge processors by 2x margin.

I got the recon of this for £322 at Dixons, its a very smart and rapid notebook. Bargain at the time, and HP Quickweb is cool too.

Anyone know how good the graphics card(s) are? How do they comapre to an Nvidia 640/630m?

I'd rather pay the extra £7 to get it from Dixons (in stock) than give these jokers my cash. Nice laptop all the same.
vwdan#6
Good price, however I've read reports that the crossfire combination of graphics cards in these laptop models can actually cause more issues than performance gains.

Heat given anyway, as its still a lot of laptop for the money

Crossfire kicks in on graphics intensive games, I have Crysis set to high and it is beautiful

I use mine to edit full HD videos and it works excellently :)

The CPU is about equivalent to a i3-2340M. Personally find the g6 model ugly shape and plastic. But if you don't mind that, the dedicated graphics card should make video editing run smoothly, but is not enough for the latest games.

You can get the same from Dell but have the option for higher specs for little more money.

Pixmania is part of the Dixons group. They're all the same jokers. PCWorld/Currys too!

Ah, the illusion of choice.

Looking for a new laptop to replace my ailing 4 year old Asus. Don't necessarily need it to run top end games, but do need something that will play and edit HD video flawlessly and I want to be able to multi-task with things like updating itunes while web surfing and watching a video without the machine grinding to a halt. My budget is £400 so this looks pretty good.

I've been told that the Intel processors are much better than any AMDs, but am I right that the seperate graphics card would be better suited for HD video editing than the integrated ones in the i3/i5 processors? Or will the graphics card only help with gaming?

Any advice would be great.

Where'd you get the vinyl stickers from, I was thinking about putting some on mine?
