I'd normally avoid Acer (budget models badly made) but this has a 2 year warranty so not bad.
Thanks for editing with additional info:D

I want to buy a gaming laptop or PC to play a game called black desert online. Anyone recommend this laptop? :|


I bought the laptop when it was £740 and it is a good laptop.

Plays most games on medium settings, it is a good laptop for the price.. However IMO the screen is matte and pretty dark at times, so might be better to look elsewhere.

Is a good price for the laptop at present.

But it will probably go cold as was £740 a few weeks ago with a free Xbox elite controller.

I ordered one from the previous deal but it hasn't been delivered so I cancelled it and ordered an i7-7500u, 256ggb SSD, 4gb graphics, 8gig ram and full HD for £413 delivered. Seems like a lot of spec for the money.

Depends really but for me it has no ssd and not full HD .

I'm really tempted by this but worried it's gonna turn up dented all over

I can let you know once mine arrives (will be delivered by next Wednesday) but from all I've heard it should be fine. Well, I hope it will be. Lot of people praise the Dell Outlet and claim that "scratch and dent" products are in a really great condition.

I bought one of these of ebay 2 weeks ago brand new for...£320 delivered.
Its perfect for Dev work as I popped in an SSD from my old laptop that has an Ubuntu setup on it (worked wothout issues after booting too, bonus for no re-install) and upgraded to 16GB of RAM (6GB was a very odd number :/ ). Its a full HD (1920x1080) and the thing I liked the most about it was a backlit keyboard (as a dev, I like working in the dark :) )
This price, its veeery exspensive. I ddnt want to go over £300 (as it wasnt worht it) but they guy charge £20 delivery.
Im going to have to vote cold sorry.
Is it easy to upgrade the Ram? What cards / setup would you recommend ?

The base has to be dis-assembled to upgrade the ram.

Hi, could somebody tell me which one is better ....
Intel HD Graphics520 graphics card.
Or a GeForce 940M
Is there a big difference?
Thanks
Edit, Just a quick opinion is fine as long as there isn't a big difference
yeh 940m is much better but it is still considered an 'entry level' type card not up to any sort of modern gaming
https://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-940M.138027.0.html
https://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-520.149940.0.html
if its just browsing, videos etc then 520 is plenty though
the 940 GeForce is much better mate. although, i personally dislike Geforce due to driver problems and compatibility problems.
but yes the Geforce 940 is better

its a bit of a mash up of parts ?
a 6th gen processor
only 6GB ram (usually 8GB nowadays)
an intel 520 gpu (expected a 550)
and no explanation of operating system ?
i would imagine it comes with windows 10 but with an intel 520 gpu and 6GB ram it might come with windows 8.1 ?
why would you expect an intel 550? its i5-6200u


sorry , well spotted ;)
i actually also missed the 0 from the 550, i can see now i have woken up what an actual mashup that really would be ! I was referring to the i5-5200u as you now not the 6200u.
its amazing what coffee can do :D
thank you for pointing out my half asleep mistake :(

Dear Priceyrice. the glare is not too bad it does have a reflection, but, the quality of the screen is superb and stunning apart from that. Like most laptops/tablets not suitable outside in direct sunlight.
Anyone got one of these, I heard the screen glare is awful, anyone able to confirm?
If you don't need a touchscreen/tablet get the Median S3409 and save £160.
Spec on site says it's QHD resolution. Very high for a laptop of this size.
Is it aluminium?

But that doesn't explain why people pay the same price for substantially less performance. You wouldn't pay premium Audi prices for a Nissan Micra because you want something small and nifty - you pay based on performance and reliability. Paying premium prices for a dual core is ridiculous and for mugs

Refurbished not new. Old computer keyboards can be very dirty even if they look clean to the naked eye.
True but a brand new replacement is normally around 25 quid if it really bothers you. Personally the worst thing about second hand laptops is the drive and battery condition as these tend to be more money to replace
Changing a keyboard on a Lenovo laptop is not easy. You can end up doing more damage than just changing the keyboard, thanks to the joy stick in the middle of the keyboard. Opening Lenovo/IBM laptops to upgrade is not for the faint hearted.
Not true, they are designed in fact to be incredibly easy to take apart, just one single screw holding the keyboard on most Lenovo Thinkpads.
These are the top business line. Costed over £600 when new
This deal deserves way more heat.

More like £1200

It's still a good deal.

Your not going to see the keyboard in the dark anyway.

USB3 for high speed video recording.

A few more usb2's for peripherals that you cannot control wirelessly.

Shame about the lack of bluetooth for those you can but it's a easy and cheap add.

Massive battery life so you can keep going all night.

12" nice and portable so it easy to take to site but not so small you cannot see your charts.

A fraction the cost of a toughbook.

Was looking at these a year or ago they were more than this.

Would be straight in the cart if I did not have other stuff going on.

They probably have Bluetooth, although not listed.

The Lenovo X61 range was built like tank, Lenovo X200/X201/X220/X230 models is built like crap, the lid split into two pieces meant the top part of the lid is prone to breaking off, the Lenovo X240 model reverted back to the standard one piece back lid.
They may not be as well built as the X61, but they are certainly not built like crap, in fact, they are still some of the toughest laptops on the market

Review of the 500gb HD version below. Great specs on paper but doesnt really get a lot of love. On the other hand, you get a lot for the money. And then again, whoever thought those stripes across the wrist area was a good idea wants shooting.

What do you think of the screen? Good viewing angles?
Great from all angles, the dell was a 15" and unless you were right in front you could not view it
Do they have it on display? I was going to make the plunge on the HP Omen which has incredible specs for the price but a pee-poor screen
Just how bad is the omen screen meant to be ? I know it's a "gaming" laptop but doesn't it have a IPS at least ? I'm disappointed it's all plastic :(
You can watch reviews on YouTube and Google the reviews, it seems like a common theme that many gaming laptops skimp on the screen and put all the money into the specs. I'm tempted to get the Omen then a secondary screen, but then there's the Dell XPS 15... My budget just keeps going up and up and up, originally it was £400 D':
Yeah I can see why. I have no intention of gaming but want something more for multi tasking video/photo ect with the standard bases of SSD and FHD screen but its settling on a budget-spec ratio as well as not pointless buying stuff I'd never need.:|
I didn't get a sign that anyone had replied... Thanks

Had this machine for a while. It has a lot of things going for it but in my experience, the WiFi is downright terrible. Any distance from the router and the speeds drop to ~1mbps, if it's able to make a connection at all. Placing it on your lap also hurts the WiFi, and I'm pretty sure it's not a defective unit since I'm on my second one. Even as I was typing this it disconnected randomly.
Had a few random hangs here and there too, not too often but enough to be irritating. As for scaling, 3200x1800 is pretty unnecessary and causes some applications to not display right. Many of them have adapted however, though some haven't.
What router you got
It's an old Virgin Superhub. I know it's a bit of a poor router, but I don't have this issue with my Asus Transformer, my Phone or even my decade old laptop. It's pretty frustrating
Sounds like router.. upgrade to a dual band..!

I'd blame the Super Hub from Virginmedia. I have no end of problems with the Wi-Fi on mine. I ended up creating a guest network with different name but all the same settings, channels etc and for some bizarre reason that one never has any problems. Even on my iPhone trying to get to Apple verification fails unless I'm on the guest network.

Guess I'll have to look into it. Like I said, all my other devices are fine, it's just my Asus that gives trouble which is frustrating given I really like the device otherwise. Are the Superhub 2 or Superhub 3 any better?
Looks like an Amazon listing issue, this does have 802.11ac Wi-Fi & Bluetooth 4.0

I own one, bought it from John lewis. It went wrong after 6 weeks, JL sent it to Microsoft for repairs and they sent me a refurb In the old box I sent it in so serial numbers don't match with box. Now in talks with John Lewis to give me a brand new unit.
What was wrong with your unit?
Good luck with getting a new replacement
The error was something like unable to locate boot drive. So I went to install Windows from fresh but it couldn't see the ssd at all.
This happened while just browsing the web, then it froze and ended in a boot loop.
Replacement took 3 weeks. That works fine but it has marks on the casing near the charging port and some backlight bleed that my original unit did not have.
Not happy as I bought the laptop and at the end of January 2017. I should have been given a brand new replacement if my original unit could not have been repaired.
Do you think I'm being unreasonable ?

I think its reasonable to ask, hope you get the replacement

Good luck with getting a new replacement
The error was something like unable to locate boot drive. So I went to install Windows from fresh but it couldn't see the ssd at all.

This happened while just browsing the web, then it froze and ended in a boot loop.

Replacement took 3 weeks. That works fine but it has marks on the casing near the charging port and some backlight bleed that my original unit did not have.

Not happy as I bought the laptop and at the end of January 2017. I should have been given a brand new replacement if my original unit could not have been repaired.

Do you think I'm being unreasonable ?

If you had actually bothered to take the time to click on the two links in my post then you would have seen that I have owned 3 of them over 9 months...

Gaming without limits on 1050... good luck :)
1050 is a good card, especially with 4gb of ram. Not the best card, but for £800 this will play most games at high or ultra at 1080 with decent frame rates. If you can find better, please post. 1050m Ti would be nice, but would cost more. 1060, 1070, 1080, etc...

I think thats a mistake from amazon, as stated above it will be the 2gb version, its not a bad price for the spec but i think its worth saving another £100-200 more for a better spec

Nice spec machine but also concerned about the 1050 perf.
Likely a heavy beast of a thing with that hdd in there too.

I am waiting for a 1050 Ti laptop myself, should be as fast as a 970M.

I agree. I think it's currently the wrong time to buy a 1050 based laptop as this is simply the first wave of releases (unless of course you can get it for a crazy price). Like you I would also wait for a Ti or price drops on the 1060.

m or standard would work better and then it would make sense to call this a standard device, not premium.
Tell Microsoft and Apple. They use it in their product names.
I'm just saying that 4GB is a base/entry spec is more suited to a non pro (premium) device such as the regular surface.
Hopefully they fix it in this year's refresh.

To be honest focussing on the RAM is probably the wrong area, if anything, the problem with the base specification is the lack of storage, that's going to be a much bigger issue. As a professional programmer, regularly running visual studio sessions and SQL server, I still find 4GB would be adequate, but 8GB is much nicer, but I simply couldn't live in 128GB, I struggle with 256GB + 128GB microsd, enough that I'm looking for USB 3 SSD storage (anyone got recommendations?).

I'd like to see the next version up the levels of RAM and storage, but especially storage, without increasing the cost.

The 4GB config really shouldn't exist in the Pro lineup imo.
4Gb is fine for most users, the SSD is fast enough for the virtual memory and there is a reason why 128Gb SSD devices hardly every come with 8Gb: page file and the hibernation file are much bigger so less free disk space.
Again a user fails to read and comprehend my comment.
I said 4GB shouldn't be included in the Pro lineup.
Put it in the Surface family but start the Pro sku with 8GB. That's what I said. Not that the 4GB model shouldn't exist. It just makes little sense to have it in a Pro branded device imo.

I guess 'Pro' must mean most casual users and their nan's nowadays.
i agree with you for the most part on the 'pro' naming attribute. quite misleading and should come standard with 8GB ram and do think the prices are extremely high for what is on offer however im working on the basis that while yes this device is expensive and should be of higher spec standard, this deal isnt bad for such a great capable machine regardless of the lack luster of additional ram. but as aforementioned the majority if not eveybody who uses this should be buying to do things that would utilise such a huge ram buffer. unless there idiots...

SSPENC3RR
4GB depends what your using it for generally most applications dont use more than 4GB anyway so that they conform with 32bit operating systems aswell less production cost. So in general your device will perform fine with mot applications and under a fairly decent load unless your planning on using at as video editing machine and 3d rendering, in which case why are you even buying considering this?
The Surface Pro range is a 64-bit setup.
Agreed though on the 4GB comment. For everyday users, 4GB will be fine.
In addition, I wouldn't recommend making a new account if you already have one.
Sorry i was working on the presumption that everybody knew the specs and operating system architecture i should have been more clear that it is infact 64bit architecture and operating syste, and capable of running full X86 based programs... i was just making the opposing argument to this that yes its a powerful machine but will never use its 4GB max ram cache unless your doing very intensive stuff which makes me beg the question why you'd look at this device...

Just what does Pro mean, Andy Murray, he's a Pro, don't imagine he needs 8GB. It's a stupid idea to call anything Pro, it's meaningless in an object, premium or standard would work better and then it would make sense to call this a standard device, not premium.

I suspect a lot of the cold votes are as much to do with the previous prices, for instance I got my 8GB (< 4GB currently in use ;-) ), for £774 once I sold the Xbox that came with it, plus a Quidco discount on top. I'm not even sure that was the best deal at the time.

Hi all,
Just wanted to know if you had purchased this laptop recently then how is it? Only I had and I received a dud one. It crashed the very first time I tried to use it whilst I was trying to customise my Microsoft settings at the beginning. Was on the phone to the technical support team for over an hour but the issue had still not been resolved. They are collecting it from me today so they can process a refund for me.
Was the one that you received alright?
Thanks :)
hi there, sorry to hear, bad luck

Was finally able to open up my new Dell Vostro 14 inch laptop I got from the outlet - no scratches or dents, seems really great! The screen is not FHD but I am finding the colours just fine. Really pleased!!

Think I'm going to keep hold of it despite the poor screen. After looking into it its not too complicated to change the screen so I will probably do that at some point. Found a thread about the inspiron 7567 on reddit, seems even the top end inspirons had the same bad panel. https://www.reddit.com/r/SuggestALaptop/comments/5q8omp/update_on_inspiron_15_7567_gaming_laptop/

If you're after something more discrete, as far as I can tell this is essentially the same laptop (and at the same price) but in silver.
No Elite Controller (worth £100-£120) with that one though.
Good spot - I forgot to check that. Thanks.
And there is no SSD
Doh! I should have checked more carefully before suggesting this as an alternative, as this and the lack of free controller make it nowhere near as good as the Omen.
Actually, it does have the SSD, so just the controller you miss out on with the Pavillion. That's still enough to make the Omen a significantly better deal though.

Bought SP4 on Christmas. Using it as main machine at the moment (Visual Studio, Photoshop etc)
Pros: light, speedy, no overheating so far, really love the touch screen for editing stuff
Cons: Poor battery, last 3h max on light usage. Build Quality still lower than my 3y old macbook pro.
Not very comfortable for lap usage
3hrs?? That can't be right surely?
It's not, I get at least 5.
Can you pls confirm your SP usage during 5h. I might send mein back, as it is definitely around 3-3.5h . In fact i was on the market to buy an extra charger

Just general word/powerpoint/Excel and Internet.
Please note changing Internet browser to Opera makes a HUGE difference, it has a battery saver mode and the CPU usage is also dramatically reduced.

I really like the look of the surface book but what I have never understood is how the surface pro could possibly be comfortable to use on your lap?
It's not, unless you are using it without the keyboard. But then it's a compromise as the Surface Book is literally twice the price.
Yeah I guess I am just not the intended market :D

No actually, I agree with you, the kickstand is annoying to balance on your lap and Microsoft would convince you that it's very usable (it's better with the multi-angle stand on the 3/4 than on the 1 and 2). I actually had a Surface Book but it was a total mess, it felt like a beta product so I sent it back and stuck with my SP3.

Tempted - this or a surface pro - need it for uni work (part time ou student- have my desktop for gaming ). Does anyone know of it can use a stylus and does it compare to surface pro stylus ?

I was in the same position with this and a surface pro. I found a SP for £900 new though and couldn't resist because i wanted to draw, too. The SP is fantastic but mine has half the storage of this and no 4k. Oh and no HDMI out...

Would the Asus Zenbook not better choice at this exact price? No touchscreen but better reviews (from very quick look). I've been looking at £400-500 light 14in laptops and I see you get an i5 and 4K screen for your extra £300 but not all that much else apart from maybe more storage.
Which model in particular are you looking at?
I've been avoiding Asus machines as of late as many lack a backlit keyboard which is inexcusable imo.

Seems a good deal, not sure why so cold?

Sorry cold voters, what was I thinking posting this?
It isn't a cheap plastic laptop with a 1366x768 TN panel and standard warranty.

Sorry, but, how much!? What is this, a Premier League footballers only laptop?

Too much money and lack of computer skills? Are you mad? they buy Mac's. **winks**

These are very nice machines, but quite niché.

That's not expensive for a laptop.
It's not his fault you don't have much money

With the potential Surface Book 2 and the highly anticipated Surface Pro 5 just round the corner, I'm not sure I'd go for this at the moment.

Did anyone buy this. Does a silver version of the Omen 15 actually exist?

Also noticed the standard colour version is £699.95 now which I'm tempted to go for. Not 100% sure it's suitable for Adobe Illustrator which is what I'm mainly using it for.

Also would want to install ssd but I assume that would void the warranty!!!!!!!!!!!1111

With the savings you could just fit a SSD into the extra 2.5" slot.
However if the other mentioned deal has a M.2 SSD that would be a better option in my opinion as it has SSD and HD.
Why would I want to spend £700 on a laptop and then start taking it to bits?

Just weighing up the options and comparing to the other deal. For some it's a simple task to put a hdd/ssd into a laptop. I understand some people may lack the skills/confidence to do so. Hence the other deal with both hdd and ssd being a more desirable offer should you need both, if you don't this would be a better option.

Can this have a separate SSD installed, thinking of selling the xbox controller and buying a SSD to install the OS on?


and voiding your warranty at the same time. I was going to do something with a recent msi purchase but lucky I didn't as it had hdd failure within 2 months and the warranty label was on the screw directly above the hdd

Will mainly be kept at home. Main usage will be browsing, watching videos and playing one game now and again. Will the SSD be better for this than the usual HDD? Thanks

SSD is always going to be better and laptops generally always have two HDD caddies. I would (personally) put a normal HDD in once storage became an issue later down the line. Much better than having a HDD, then wanting to format the entire laptop when I decided an SSD was needed. If you're not ever going to take it out of the house, then there's no reason not to buy a bigger screened "desktop replacement" style laptop.

Realistically, the only thing that's going to eat storage space these days are the big AAA games (My GTAV folder for instance is nearly 70GB) but those types of games are going to struggle on 80-90% of laptops anyway. Everything else is streamed these days; Netflix, iPlayer, Spotify, Google Play Music, whatever.

I understand I generally qualify as a "power user" so I am being very picky waiting for the right work laptop for me.

Depends whether you want to take it out of the house or not. 17" desktop replacement laptops are a paint in the **** to carry around. Especially that one weighing 2.7kg, whereas the 14" listed here is only 1.49kg.

Depends what you want. That's not got an SSD and is an older generation I5-6200U so will be slower for some stuff but you're trading that off against the bigger screen.

Do you know if the 10% off is just on this computer? I'm looking for the yoga 900s but it doesn't seem to be in the offer?
Maybe the 10% off has been applied to all the listed prices.

Yes your right yayy! It wasn't included yesterday but I checked again today and it now is :D . Unfortunately I bought one from PC world in silver yesterday but I think I'll have no problem returning it when it arrives and then get the 900s from John Lewis- they have the gorgeous champagne gold, 2 year guarantee and the extra pen which I think is worth the added £90 on the PC world price <3

Seems like a good deal to me. Certainly cheaper than what I could find elsewhere. I've got the UX305 and it's brilliant, which this is the upgrade of. Exceptionally lightweight, start up in seconds and no issues with overheating. If you want something a bit cheaper, then i would still recommend it (might be superseded by the 310 now, which is circa £600), but this is still definitely good value.


I've been looking at the 305 too as you can get it in white (the colour means a lot to me!oO ). There was a deal on here a year ago for it at curry's for £499 and £100 trade in on top. But it's not dropped below £599 for months now. There's a refurb deal currently on here for it for £380 at the moment.
I thought I'd settled on this but your comments on the 305 are throwing me back!

Same price at Amazon, 'Drones4Less' list it for less. The 1.6Ghz model is not a good choice most of the time anyway and the Air hasn't been updated for two years. A bit like most of the rest of the Mac range!
I actually don't think going between the i5 and i7 makes that much differance as both dual core and low speed. My one big regret when I ordered my MBA 11 inch is that I didn't pay the extra for the 8GB RAM as didn't want to wait. I think if you are looking at a MBA you should get an 8GB model with 256GB SSD. TBH the only reason that I needed the 8GB is that I use VMware. As this comes with 8GB standard now not such an issue, but don't go with the 128GB as you'll regret it (although the 13 inch does have an SD slot you can get fast flash memory for). In short the i5 is fine for 95% of MBA target market and the i7 actually gets less battery which is a key point of buying a MBA in the first place. Best MBA is i5 8GB RAM and 256 SSD in my opinion. I still prefer the 11 inch (now dead!) model though.

It's, what, technically almost two business life cycles old and presumably isn't bundled with a new battery and the problem with laptops that old age isn't the CPU, which is fine, or even that the CPU has a much higher power draw than U-series ultrabook CPUs, the disadvantage with laptops of that age (assuming the vender has cleaned out the matted dust and, vastly less likely, cleaned off and applied fresh thermal paste to the CPU) that use integrated graphics is the comparatively poor performance of Intel HD Graphics 3000, though if it's mainly for office duties and won't often be used away from the desk where it lives, that probably won't matter much to the buyer. If a student looking for a laptop of this age, I would ask your relatives if they have something this old in a cupboard somewhere that they would be prepared to part with for little money, then add the cost of a new battery that holds a charge for longer than an hour or so.

Great info, appreciated as looking for a new laptop and I'm on a budget, do you know how much your looking at for an SSD and where to look? Thinking of going for the last laptop in your list ( even though I prefer windows 7)
Cheers

To prefix this if you are getting the T430 then this advice applies, if you're getting the T431 then it doesn't at all. Best option is to keep an eye on HUKD and set up alerts for the term SSD.

Price wise you're talking for a good deal on traditional 2.5inch disks of
128gb - £30
256gb - £50-55
512gb - ~£100 mark
1tb - Forget it, not currently good value for money.

Those capacities being just placeholders as SSD's do tend to come in a variety of capacities around those figures. Also to add that you can get cheaper less good options and more expensive range topping ones. All depends on your needs.

Cold from me, this is overpriced as these can be picked up for about £140 generally. As to the suggestion that they are too old, I still have an X61 that works fine still and it's from 2008. These are built to last and have plenty of grunt when you compare them to modern laptops at equivalent price ranges even to this deal. Pay £220 for one and it should run rings around any new machine at the same price point, get an X220 for ~£140 and you will find no new laptop that's as powerful at that price and quite a range of consumer range refurbs that can't keep up even with more of a budget towards them.

T430 again next generation of T series machine, double the RAM and a traditional disk with change to spare to upgrade it to an SSD for the same amount of money.
Don't stick with Windows 7, it is slower, less secure and goes end of life in under 3 years. If you can get Windows 10 go for that

Windows 7 is slower on low end hardware, on the sort of options being discussed here then it's perfectly fine. With reference to 3 years for End of life, it's pretty unlikely that in most use cases that someone would not move on from this machine in that time.

Price wise some examples of things I've seen lately that make this seem a non deal to me. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gaming-laptop-Lenovo-ThinkPad-12-5-500GB-Intel-i5-2-5GHz-8GB-Win-7-10-Webcam-/201823044012?var=&hash=item2efd9741ac:m:mYg2L4HWOerlObyY_r8OTLA
Ignoring it's claimed as a 'gaming laptop' which it isn't, the spec is the same and adding an SSD brings it to the same price as this deal but you get a 320gb drive for the same money and otherwise the same machine. http://www.rectech.co.uk/8,1759,laptops.laptops_over_200.lenovo_thinkpad_t431s_1.9ghz_250gb_4gb.html
T431s which is a newer T series model at the same price range as the X series of this deal. More posting this to show it's overpriced for what you're getting. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FAST-Lenovo-Thinkpad-T430-Laptop-i5-3320M-Windows-10-8GB-Ram-320GB-HDD-Warranty-/232202114065?hash=item3610531411:g:Tn4AAOSwB09YCiFi
T430 again next generation of T series machine, double the RAM and a traditional disk with change to spare to upgrade it to an SSD for the same amount of money.
Product is simply amazing. But it can be gotten for a lot cheaper. CPU is still absolutely fine for most users, keyboard and trackpad/trackpoint are superb and built quality is awesome. I spilled a lot of water on mine and it was fine once it dried (though I accidentally melted the keyboard off)

I'd recommend an SSD for everyone, 8GB of RAM if you are a tab **** and an IPS screen if you like colours. The 93Wh battery lasts all day which is pretty great.

lol @ your 'positive' review
i'm not convinced, can pick up the i5-6400 used for around 100-120, don't think the rest of that is going to be worth 200-220, I know you'd have to build yourself but would put the parts inside to shame.

Not voted, just don't think people should be swayed by pre-built

The 3 month warranty is also a joke

never said it was amazing but at least £80 something off the RRP currently the best deal around on this model for finance. personally im waiting for bigger discount on SP5 announcments.

Oh wow! That looks soooo good!!
I'd love one of these. Seems like the idea 2in1 but is this a good price?

Hopefully we'll see the machine on it's own for under 1k soon enough.
