If that def has an i5, that is an absolute bargain! I will check my store tomorrow

Refurbished? Store-specific (I imagine)? Can't find it on the site.

If you can get one your onto a winner

if its i3 , then its a good deal or not?

Sounds a bargain for all those that can find the stock.

Do you have the Sainsburys SKU number OP and if so please can you post it as well. Thanks

Do you think this offer is at all Sainsburys stores???

will def be checking the local ones by me in the morning then

Bargain price for an i5

this is unbelievable.

Sainsburys had these in recently at £349.99

So at this price would be a steal, even for an older 480m.

First gen i5 CPU but still very very decent in terms of processing power and more than enough for use at home; should be able to run virtual guests easily on it but additional RAM would be needed if running several of them.

Intel® Core™ i5-480M Processor (3M Cache, 2.66 GHz)

Intel Core i5 480M Notebook Processor - Notebookcheck.net Tech

Edit - It appears that this system might be able to run as a Hacktinosh if members are interested in that; there's a mixed bag of posts out there but the InsanelyMac Forum is throwing up several results (for the i3 & i5 series of this model).

Thanks for the acknowledgement!

someone please confirm this, will run to the store and buy one if correct

Can I just point out that I am sceptical. It is unconfirmed. In the past there have been computer bargains posted that have had people chasing hoax pcs at bargain prices and the store never knew anything about them. OP great deal of its true , but please upload the receipt as soon as possible to confim the deal is real.

I like to think people post in good faith. If I had found the deal which on the face of it is cracking, I would not post a pic of the receipt I would just like to think people would get out of the chair and go and look for themselves

Fantastic deal if others can find it, an i3 at this price would be a decent deal but this is fantastic oO

This deal is true, sainsburys having a big sell off on discontinued laptops. £229. Obviously store specific though. Some stores will have this model. Others will have different.
I found the acer 5552 3gb ram 500gb Harddrive.

What stores are open at 9am on a sunday for you to ring? altho I guess scottish stores may be open
Edited by: "jukie" 13th Nov 2011

Another wild goose chase for a laptop thats not available, most of the staff would already have snapped them up!

Op, was yours a sainsburys local or a a large superstore? There's a load of sainsburys near me but they are mostly locals.

every store i am ringing is open, Warrington,Wigan,Urmston, Northwich etc.

Thank you OP! Just picked up one from Glasgow/Braehead. They also had what I have now checked to be the older model, the 5552 for the same price. I bought one of them also, just incase I was wrong about the processor speed, but I have checked and it is a triple core, but has bigger hard drive, different screen, still looks like a lot of lappy for the 230 squid!

The SKU posted is correct, an i5-480. I got my local to check, they are coming up everywhere. Don't do the phone thing, just drive to your biggest one and check in-store, take the SKU numbers. If they don't have them, they can check the system and let you know who has them, but you might be lucky, as once staff get wise, there will be "none available".

It is standard that to confirm the deal they post a receipt. Its standard practice on thos board to post a picture for confirmation. Unfortunately there have been deals in the past where the supermarkets have never heard of them and people have wasted a lot of time looking for deals that never existed. The Tescos Acer Ferarri one was a classic hoax.

However it seems rehydrated seems to be confirming the deal is real.

If you live near a Best buys you could get it for £209.99 on the price promise. They show as £429.99 on the Best Buys website and they give 10% of the difference on top of the price match.

Just ordered a refurb one of these on Friday on ebay currys/pworld outlet (i5, 500Gb hard drive, 4gb ram) for £262 (sniff)

So obviously a brand new one with full warranty (even if slightly lower spec) for about £229 is an absolute bargain
