Says 'available on order', not quite sure if that means it's available straight away from the manufacturers. Have a look at checkout and see if it's any clearer to you.
This looks a nice laptop. Went to 214° when posted last week at Cdiscount for £449 delivered. The only downer for me is the on board graphics, although I suspect it may output full 1080p HD as it says 'Max External Video Modes Max Resolution : 2,048 x 1,536' and '1 x HDMI-CEC (REGZA-Link) supporting 1080p signal format '.

Hmmm im on CDiscount now...put the voucher code in and it says

'Your discount was taken into account.'

Does this mean I will get 20% back?
#19
Very nice. Heat added, but beware when buying from TheHut... Very slow and shoddy delivery, but excellent customer service team.

If it was on another site, I would be telling my dad to order it now (As he's on the lookout for a lappy) :P

Yes it does, I was a bit dubious so I called them and they confirmed you will get the cashback
#21

so they dont actually give you cashback into your bank account but like a credit note to use at their shop like it says from above "Account credit needs to be used within 30 days of it appearing in your account"......is that right or am i wrong ?....

Hi,

I know the graphics aren't geared towarsd gaming here, but does this internal chipset deal with lower powered 3d gaming OK? I'm thinking half-life 2, L4D, low settings, DX10 support?

I'm not thinking Crysis etc...

Looks like a belter of a deal.
#23
Just bought this one. Thanks for the heads up.
#24
Really Hot deal..
If any experts, Please let me know
- How easy to exapand the RAM to 4 or 6 GB ?
- is it 64 bit processesor ?

Posted that yesterday, its basicly the same spec but with 4gb ram and a widescreen display.

Can be had for £421 with a voucher and free delivery code.

ordered this from the hut tonight £403 with 3% Quidco - £390 - it looks like cdiscount just load their prices with this 20% cashback offer anyway - I think this is a great deal - Toshiba themselves are selling it at £488 (£100 more) on their website

Thanks - Heat & Rep coming your way

You're right. It's actually 'creditback'. it's exactly like you said, a credit note.
#33
Just as I was about to order from the Hut its disappeared, my luck!
#34
Tried to follow the link and it says that there's something wrong with the encoding of the page (in firefox) which is a shame because i want this laptop. I went to order it from cdiscount but there were some "complications" and it's gone up to 469.99 so that will have to do now :(
#35
oh nooo!!!! Just as i was about to order it, the links gone!!! anyone know of any other companies that offer it at the same price???

You could still get it from Cdiscount with 3% Quidco and 20% Cdiscount (about £94 in vouchers that you have to spend within 30 days) credit back till midnight tonight.

You still have to pay the £470, it depends if you need anything else at the moment to spend your £92 on.
