Hey guys/girls,

So whilst (regrettably) I missed the Amazon lightning deal for this a couple days back £20 cheaper, I don't have a timemachine.

Therefore a bit of searching about, and this appears to be the best bang for buck i5 Ivy Bridge mid-low range laptop out there for the price.

Now I know I'll get some 'Cold, Acer' or 'Cold, not 1080p, i7, blu-ray, touchscreen and SSD' type posts, but whatever.

Before people ask, no it isn't 1080p, it doesn't (I think) have USB3.0, and yes its Integrated graphics with standard 15.6" resolution. But this will suit MOST people down to a tee, and is more than most people require. For those wanting to run Crysis on Extreme it won't do that, but then its £350. So, yeah.

Cheers

P.S. TCB at 7% for 'new' customers.

They mug me off, when they cock up price. Thou was willing to take my money, and a month later i got it back. So you cant defend them!
I was actually joking about the cold part just for reference, however I am suprised it got any heat purely because its from Very the main consensus is mostly poor especially when referencing back to voucher codes where they take the full amount and then maybe/might/perhaps refund you the voucher.
hot for a good value spec, cold or the supplier.

They can defend them if they want. If any company that ever let down 1 customer (though I'm sure you're not the only one) is instantly to be avoided by all, there will be no companies left to buy from!
Never had any problems with Very. Been a customer for the last 4 years now. Just an update Quidco is offering 15% cashback for new customers until Sunday only. If awarded that will be £52.35, I'm sure their is £30 discount of first order aswel which will make total cost £266.65.

I dont think thats a good price. I would say you can get some good deals in the 250-300 bracket - probably an i3, but otherwise same specs.
Don't know enough about the technology to say how hot this is - sounds like it could be a good buy.

I tried an order with Very a couple on months back, had problems with my order and have to say the in-house customer service team was one of the worst I've ever had to deal with. Only ordered because I thought "Littlewoods" was a trusted name, never again!

Any problems I suggest looking over on MSE forum/Twitter/Facebook for the PR team who were able to sort my simple problem almost instantly (after several hours of infuriating phone calls to regular CS.)
Not a good price - you can get a lot better spec and better built than acer cheaper than this
^ If you make this statement you must show proof.
cold the same one in amazon is £329.00
COLD
I bought it from them a few weeks back arrived quick and it's an awesome laptop
Ichel, that's not the same machine. Please refrain from posting if you're incorrect.
Same as other people have said. I wouldn't buy anything from Very. Their customer service is enough to put me off ever ordering from them.

Yes.
Reckon this would be alright for running Photoshop/Illustrator, considering it doesn't come with a dedicated GPU?
Amazing when you think two years ago would get you a ropey AMD dual core for this price.

Should be pretty decent. At the end of the day it does have 5ghz of processing power, Don't think PS/AI is very demanding on the GPU, and at least HD4000 can help out a bit.
Tried to buy, but Very seems to have a problem finding my address and taking my payment.
