I have been after this laptop on Amazon for a while, it was £350 for some time then went back up to around £380. Today the price dropped over £100 so I just ordered it. I hope other people will like this deal too.

grab yourself a good Christmas Gift (_;)

Nice one OP, Thanks, agree with joey119, with a CPU benchmark of 3000 and Intel Iris 5100 graphics at this price is commendable.

couldn't resist.
Looks like from what this review says, upgrading the ram may yield 30-40% increase in frame rates on games, (if I read it correctly?).

Have some heat, great price

Graphic Card

The Intel Iris Graphics 5100 IGP is a rarity: the test model is the third device we have tested so far which uses this IGP. The first two are the Apple MacBook Pro Retina 13 and the Asus Zenbook UX301LA. The IGP runs at 1.1 GHz and supports DirectX 11. In comparison to the MacBook and the Zenbook, the results of our test model are a little disappointing (3D Mark benchmarks). A glance at the result of 3D Mark 2011 benchmark shows us that the Aspire performs worse than its sibling, the Acer Aspire V3-371-55GS, which is equipped with the HD Graphics 4400 IGP.

This puzzle is easily solved: the three competitors work with dual-channel mode. This allows them to use their IGPs more efficiently and thus score higher results. Our test model can also use dual-channel mode but first we need to install a RAM module in the empty, secondary RAM slot. The Zenbook achieves the best results of the competitors thanks to its IGP being 100 MHz faster (1.2 GHz vs. 1.1 GHz) than the chips of the Macbook and the Aspire.

After installing the second RAM module, our test module ran the 3D Mark benchmarks again and in the 3D Mark 2011 benchmark, the score rose by 31% to 1,221 points. In the following diagrams, we have noted the single- and dual-channel mode results of our test model.

Brilliant price!

Just note this is 28w apu not 15w ulv. So more performant but more power consumed also though ulv also turbos to 25w for a limited time.

this seems a cracking price. love the idea of a smaller yhan fifteen inch laptop. but could really do with a dvd drive

Do I need it, nope.

Did I buy it, yep.

Looking forward to hooking up an xbox controller and playing GRID on the road.
:-P

Great Find! I have been looking out for an i3 at £250 for weeks!

Ordered straight away. Perfect size and great for hooking up to the tv for Sky go.

Heat!

Actually, one of the reviews on amazon days the screen is 1376 x 768.
Anyone know for sure?

Oh for flip's sake. I only looked on here two hours ago and I've been looking for weeks!

It's only 1366x768 but on a 13.3" it should be fine.

I thought it 1376 x 768 originally which is fine for me. It will be1080p when using hdmi out if monitor supports it.

However the review I linked to for the item states 1080p, that would just be a bonus that I am not too fussed about.

Still a very good buy, Good Luck and enjoy

Gutted I missed this:(

Really needed a laptop, to the extent that i was contemplating venturing out over the Black Friday weekend!

Very happy I waited now.

Been looking at this laptop for a few weeks gutted to have missed out. Currys has this listed at 1080p screen and I saw it in store and its a non gloss finish. Enjoy

Try again in a few days, it was out of stock before and when the new stock arrives, it might not be going back to original price immediately.

Got the last one

My girlfriend wanted a nice laptop. Given she isn't so tech savvy this is ideal. Not only that, the specs are very well suited for the price. Remarkable that some outlets are still selling for £350-400!?
