At last someone has realised what a great deal this is. Cheapest I can find elswhere is £1050 so why no votes.

I'd guess it's possibly due to the fact that although it is a great deal, it's probably still above most peoples budget for a laptop, (mine for instance), so for those people this is not such a good deal.
Congrats on finding a great deal, but not one for me I'm afraid. :-)

cheapest ive ever seen this is 899, so very tempting as i want this notebook

Ok thanks for comments. I still believe it is a great deal for a high spec laptop regardless of the price and was rather suprised to see it being voted cold.

Limpduck are you sure it is the same model at £899. There are several 8920G's on the market with different processor speeds. This one is the medium speed of T8300. The slower one, T5750, is ussually priced at £899

tbh i did not know thay released the same laptop with various speeds, either way does it matter? its still a good deal...

the only thing stopping me buying one now this second is the graphics card.... im just not sure if its powerful enough for gaming at the native resolution.

i think i may wait for the Toshiba X300-11S to drop a bit.

Absolutly mate. I just didnt want you to buy a laptop with a slower processor by mistake.
Good luck with your choice
