It's heavy, has built-in graphics, and poor battery life, so I'd avoid.

Looks good to me. Apart from being a bit heavy (which you could arguably forgive given the features) the other downside is lack of 802.11n support. Duly heated.

Edit in fact I don't even think it's that heavy - I just looked at my own laptop spec (a Samsung) and that's 2.5 kilos. I don't consider that heavy, so all in all I'd say that this a great find provided you can live with Wireless G (which IMO is easy to do). If you really need N for some reason there's nothing stopping you adding a dongle or perhaps upgrading the internal adapter at a later date (assuming the WLAN card is replaceable, most are).

p.s. @trambler, perhaps you can point to a better deal?

Ok having seen that Samsung deal you posted this doesn't seem to be the best deal out there. Thanks for pointing that out, appreciated.

Thanks for the advice porkypie. I have decided to pay the extra and go for the one you suggested. I also found a voucher code which gave me another £20 if you spend £100 on technology.
The code for anyone else interested in this deal is 37MJ-CJ77-GDGL
Many thanks again

Sainsburys deal looks worth a post on it's own. Do we know if it has HDMI ?

I know this is £50 above your budget but if you can stretch to it it gives so much more. Samsung offer loads of features but can sometimes be let down by build quality.

Sorry, but I have to ask: what's so good about it? Its got Blu-ray, but the rest of the spec. is nothing special at all, as far as I can see and what's the point of blu-ray with a 1366x768 screen anyway? Also, the Phenom processors can't hold a candle to the i3/i5's.

If you are going to spend £500, there are simply loads of far better laptops IMO: just type i5 into the HUKD search box and see what comes up. Depends what your priorities are, but you generally pay way over the top for the Sony name compared to others.
