Thank You.

I am in the market for a laptop. I looked at netbooks but they are just a little too small and I want to have a built-in DVD or Blu-Ray drive. But I like the netbooks low price and long battery life.
Would this be a good compromise? The is the DVD drive built in?
If not, any ideas? I am happy to spend up to about £800 and I want something smallish and lightish but can be bigger than a netbook, with long battery life and DVD or ideally Blu-Ray drive.

This laptop is also available from Argo's outlet on ebay for £319.99 plus £3.99 postage but you don't get the case or mouse etc. Says refurbished but there definition of refurbished is just damaged packaging. They have 121 available. Strange that they have this many box damaged!
#4
Dont forget people this comes with 3 year warranty and anti virus i just bought mine today. Hard to find stock but if anyone is interested in getting one and live in the west london area i have a spare reservation number at cowley retail park near uxbridge.

does anyone have practical experience of the Argos Outlet for computers like this ? The 319.99 seems a very attractive price, especially if selling as refurbished is simply a means of pushing them out cheap. Agreed that it is odd that there should be 121 refurbs of the same item. Unless of course there was a duff batch ....

Arogs do seem to be selling a V1, V2 and V3. Does anyone know the differences ??

maybe a macbook? they are quite small but bigger than a netbook, have a built in dvd drive (not blu ray though) and they have a very long battery life. they are also around the £800 mark.

hdmi port?


No. Hence the price.

This is the v3 - as is the one on eb4y at 319.99

Seems a good deal, and the one on eb4y is even better, considering the bag and mouse are worth about 20 quid.

I've just picked up a Vaio from play.com with brd and a new i5 processor for 749.99.

Nice inbetween size too @ 14in.

It's a toss up between pathetic processing power (great battery life) and a proper desktop style processor (diminishing battery life to 3 hrs) for you mate.

Some Asus UL50s come with DVD built in. You will get 8-10hrs, 15.6in screen, a CULV processor, 4gb ram, 500gb HDD, a decent graphics card and a v slim and light laptop for... um... less than £800 for sure. That would be my pick.

*edit

Imo a CULV isnt a slow processor at all. Not an atom, for sure.

For extra peace of mind, I guess that's a small price to pay (plus AVG too) - though if a laptop failed to be usable for three years wouldn't most of us return it for a refund anyway?

I know i would for a £400 telly, or a £400 hifi, or a games console ( *thinks fondly of many a broken down XBox 360 ! * )

Fit for purpose etc etc. ?
#15
I'd get this while you can - there has been a massive lack of stock on this specific laptop. Argos are getting complaints left right and centre - especially with it being a WOW deal.
#16
cracking price

looks good :)

Depends on your needs. Their both different sizes. You bought a 13", this is a 15". If its for your Wife, i'd assume she would prefer the 'smaller' laptop?
Specs wise doesnt look to diff anyway. Prob slightly slower CPU but that uses DDR 3 memory instead which is better. Has all the essentialls you'd ever need too with card reader, web cam, wifi, big hdd. If you really want a DVDRW, try looking for a cheap external usb DVDRW drive or simply transfer the files over to another machine?

Im looking for something similar at the minute, except I only want to pay half of what you did :(

They only thing I can come up with so far is a Studio 13" or the lovely XPS M1330 13"

I dont think il ever find a laptop that ticks ALL my boxes :roll:

the ones on ebay are t4300.

Good post, they do let laptops go very cheaply on the eBay store. I've had a few, usually you will find its a machine that someone has bought and returned for whatever reason.
#22
The techie people say (not being one myself ) T4400 is a old processor best to pay a few more quid more and go for the newer i3,or the more expensive i5 and i7

Pays your money and take your choice;-)
#23
Might be good idea to check if the OS is 32 or 64 bit.
If 32bit the available ram drops to 3gb.
#24
Having bought a wireless card from Argos Clearance Bargains the other day, I'd be inclined to go with that rather than pay the £399 from the store.

£324 vs £399 for in effect the same PC. The mouse & bag is worth about £20 so is the 3 year warranty worth £56?

I would look at this one if I were you, ignore the cold votes as it is the cheapest Asus UL80VT you can get hold of....

Good specs for the price, but having seen the R519 series in the flesh, it was one ugly ass laptop..

It looks and feels very cheap.
If that doesn't bother you, then go ahead, but it put me off. I don't want to spend £400 on something i don't like the look of.

Doesnt look or feel cheap. Very well built and not ugly at all. Looks should be the last thing to worry about anyway!

Look at the Dell Inspiron 13z, Powerful, very capable machines and can be had with a high spec for around £600 all in.
The Dual Core 1.3Ghz is faster than the 2.0Ghz Dual core in my XPSm1330 which cost a lot more 3 years ago. With the included 6 cell battery (which looks and sits very well btw) the inspion 13z lasts around 6 hours so a real long lasting laptop which is also portable!

its only a 32 bit OS so only 3gb ( 2.93) is available. Bit silly to bung 4gb in IMHO

Just a word of warning!

Don't buy the XPS m1330 with integrated Nvidia 8400M. Just do a quick search on the web and you will see many many stories of failing video chips in these which unfortunately included me! Fortunately for me it occurred within the 2 year warranty (Dell extended the warranty by 1 year for this specific component due to these problems) but to buy a new motherboard (the gfx chip is soldered on so impossible to replace on its own) its around £250 (from ebay).

I am still using my XPS m1330 and touch wood it's running ok and much cooler since I performed the 'copper mod' on the Nvidia Chip but it's not exactly an amazing outcome.
However, it's still a case of WHEN the chip will die not IF... Saying that, it is an incredibly powerful machine and I absolutely love it, especially since I now have Windows 7 on it!

P.S. The integrated intel video is fine apparently, though far less capable...
P.P.S I recommend the Inspiron 13z (see above)

Cheers
Phil

Why is this?

And would it not go down to 2gb if they put 3gb in?..

32bit is only capable of using up to 3GB due to limitations of the interface i believe.

Hmm interesting. But it seems its only windows that cant access more then the 3gb, the rest is used for other things:....

"Significant chunks of address space below 4GB (the highest address accessible via 32-bit) get reserved for use by system hardware:

• BIOS – including ACPI and legacy video support

• PCI bus including bridges etc.

• PCI Express support will reserve at least 256MB, up to 768MB depending on graphics card installed memory

What this means is a typical system may see between ~256MB and 1GB of address space below 4GB reserved for hardware use that the OS cannot access. Intel chipset specs are pretty good at explaining what address ranges gets reserved by default and in some cases call out that 1.5GB is always reserved and thus inaccessible to Windows. "

seems like a pretty good deal, but shame about the 32 bit OS.

Great deal, have bought one for my son but I must stress something to the OP..... This deal has been posted several times before in the past few weeks. I'm sure those looking to buy a laptop can use the search function.
