I think this is a great deal. I am looking for a new laptop for my sixteen year old (and if I got her a pink one even better). When I went on to configure the £549 model, I downgraded the graphics card (as she doesn't play games) but what I am unsure about is that I downgraded the processor (total cost then shows as £469).

Is it worth £50 to get the Intel Core TM i3-370m 240ghz instead of the P6100 2.00ghz? Her old Vaio that we are replacing is 2.00ghz and that seems fast enough for her. Hope someone more computer literate than me can advise.

Also noticed that by downgrading the graphics card, the delivery changes from 6-7 weeks to 3-4 weeks so hopefully would get it by xmas.

Thanks op for letting me know about this deal.

the i3-370 is a much more powerful processor compared to the pentium. it has hd video capabilities built in to it and can easily play hd iplayer and youtube etc. the same can't be said for the pentium. it also has hyperthreading and virtualisation built into it meaning it cn have virtual cores and multiple processes running side by side. it is a powerhouse compared to the pentium, but only you can justify the 50 quid.
how long do you intend on keeping it, are standard hd capabilities someone you want (personally i find this very important), and can you actually justify paying the price of a vaio which i find instantly has 100-150 pounds added to it just for the name. you could get a better laptop for a much better price.

I would keep the graphics card as it is, the minimum spec is not good at all.also for future proofing I would def go for the ati graghics card even if you dont play games as operating system and apps are becoming more graphic intensive. also I would advise you to stick i3 processor. You cannot upgrade a laptop easily when slows down & for the extra £ 100 you pay today you will have a future proof laptop. A great deal Op
