So you think that it is an average price? I don't really want to spend over £400 and want to get a laptop with the best specs available. How much would you say its worth?
#5
maybe give a model name and number would be helpful as it might be cheaper elsewhere,
#6
It would help if you stated the brand, as Sonys are worth more than say Acers. But judging from the specs it isn't a great deal, just the average price that you would pay for a laptop of those specs. There's been a few hot deals on laptops on here recently.

Thought I typed in the brand name - my bad, it is an Acer 5750

Actually that's a decent deal. (_;)

But have a look here you can get slightly better specs for £5 more

I bought this yesterday, there's a deal for it on here.

There's also a 40 off code and 6% quidco/tcb. 340 odd I think, which makes it an excellent price

Hi there, do you have a link?
EDIT: I have just paid for it using the 10% code. I logged into Quidco then went to the Dixon's website - how does Quidco trace the 6%? I've applied but never used it before.

Im guessing Quidco will take a day or so to track.
I noticed it said Black in the item description but showed a blue laptop in the pictures.

Lets hope I get a black one :)

It links to a blue one. If you search the model there's also a black one, I've e-mail them to ask to change to black
