Right here we go again, another stormer of a laptop.

Now, the R780 is new, and has been out with the i3 processor, but this one states the i5!! I dont know if this is a mistake because this is ALOT more money elsewhere, but take a screen print of it and make them compensate you if it is a mistake!! £829 in PC World and around £799 everywhere else!!

Samsung R780
17" LED Screen
500GB Hard Drive
4GB Ram
Windows 7
Nvidia GT330M Graphics which will play the latest games!

Back in stock although the following info maybe of use

You will see from looking at the spec on the website it contradicts itself

* In the full spec it mentions the I3 processor despite saying it's an I5
* The processor speed listed in that of the I3 and not the I5
* The I5 comes with a blu ray drive and not DVD as listed

To clear this up I phoned Dixons and they put me through to a guy in a PC World store in Sheffield (those of you who aren't aware PC World are part of the same group as Dixons) and I asked him to physically look at the laptop and he confirmed the I5 has a blu ray and a higher processor speed than that listed on the Dixons website. To further clarify I asked if for the SKU numbers for both the R780 I3 variant (Lower Spec) and the R780 I5 (Higher Spec) details are

SKU R780 I3 = 072625
SKU R780 I5 = 655913

Going back to the Dixons website you will see that the product they are selling for £699 is the higher spec as the SKU listed is 655913. I asked the chap how much this was selling for instore and he said £829.99. I believe Play are doing it for about £770 so still quite a nice saving!

Very true, just can't decide on this or the new Dell Studio 17 posted a few days ago.

Amongst other things I am going to use this laptop to take DJing with me and one of the features I liked is that (according to Samsung) if a drink is knocked over it it won't damage anything you just let it dry out! Now I am not planning to try this when I get it but obviously it could happen when I am out DJing.

Well i've pulled the trigger on the samsung too, good luck! ;-)

Now showing as out of stock again...

Mine has arrived already! I haven't powered it up yet as I am still at work but I having looked at it briefly the initial signs are that it is the higer spec model as it does have a Blu Ray drive in it. Once I power up later i will fully confirm

Further to this post I can confirm the laptop is the higher spec it has the Blu Ray drive, NVIDIA GeForce CT 330M, The I5 processor 2.27Ghz

Are you 100% sure that the processor is 2.27ghz? I'm not doubting you, i just want to double check before i take the plunge as the dixons website quotes 2.13ghz which is the i3 330M processor. (any chance of a screenie of "computer properties"?)
#19
I have the laptop in front of me and I have checked both in the BIOS and under the system properties and trust me it definitely is.I am just off out to DJ but will put a screen dump up for you tmrw if you want?

that would be great - i spoke with PC world a couple of days ago and they said the models they were getting in were i5 2.13 GHz... so not sure which part of the info they gave is incorrect!
#22
Just taken the plunge and ordered mine. Got screen prints and print outs in case what I get contradicts what we've read. Here's hoping. If not there's always the 7 day return policy.

also took the plunge , today.. been waiting for this laptop for the last 4 weeks, but everywhere seems to be either out of stock (sold out ) or awaiting stock to arrive.

Ive seen this item on Dixon's web site for a while , and was in two minds weather to order it due to the mix of info on there web page ( I3/I5 ) i just hope its the I5 like others are posting or its going straight back

yes i did ordered yesterday morning as it was showing stock.
#30
never looked earlier but i cant see any mention of bluray or i5 in product description now?
#31
The advert has now changed, it did say it was an i5 processor before the weekend...

I took the plunge and ordered it on Friday when it did still say i5, and my receipt email says i5 on it so I'm still hopeful, and will definitely be complaining if it isn't. I took the earlier advice and took screen shots when I made the purchase too, so hopefully have my back covered.

Yep, I would say this deal has now expired.

I ordered when it was shown as i5, however mine is sitting in a DHL warehouse as it's not being delivered until Friday as it has to be signed for. It's going to be a long week ;-)
#34
I just got my confirmation and DHL tracking emails, everything still says i5 so will have to wait and see... It's at the warehouse in Lincoln, hopefully I'll get it tomorrow so will let you know what version I get when I know...
#35
good luck with getting i5's people!

If anyone else is looking for an i5 laptop then i just ordered one of these for £70 less than this r780 deal and it has a better graphics card too plus double the hard drive space.

Yes, a it's good deal however the i5 Samsung should ship with Blu-ray, Bluetooth and Wireless N (and is much lighter) so it's swings and roundabouts really.

However if it turns out to be an i3 then I'll be straight on to Dell ;-)

Have to agree with this. Would love the samsung but if it's i3 then no go
#39
My laptop has only been picked up by DHL today, so fingers crossed that it is the i5 version. At least it says that on my receipt!
#40
All as posted earlier I ordered from Dixons and got the I5 with the blu ray, 2.27Ghz processor etc I was going to post a screen dump but I have no where to host it and link to it
