i'd rather pay £100 more and get the HP dv6920ea with a blu-ray drive, however good price for it's spec. Voted hot.

Ok, guess it's not such a good deal. People voting cold but not making any comments, advice would be appreciated.

Looks ok to me - decent processor and reasonable graphics card. Could do with an extra gig or 2 of ram, but its a fair price.

I expect by shopping around you will find better though.

Thanks for your comments, maybe I should get some advice before I buy. Don't think I will buy this one now.
