That is a great price, if i hadn't bought my wife a laptop for £400 just before xmas i would have gotten this. I have the 6555 with the blu-ray drive and it is a great machine and build quality.:thumbsup:

Same price @ pcworld too.

Looks good, and with 3% Quidco too

Also on sale at

Dixon (3.2% Quidco)
Currys (3% Quidco)

Just looking into a few bits and bobs before ordering...

Screen resolution 1440 x 900 pixels
No Blu-Ray?
Windows 7 Upgrade?
No webcam?

if you buy online, can you refund it instore without hassle ?

Yeah they deal with online sales as if purchased in store however getting a refund is a completely diff story

actually i know its gonna get sold out very quickly and i am not sure if i need one :-(

very good specs for the price but i have never tried any advent notebook before.

Out of stock on Curry's website

gone at pcworld too...

fcuk me!
That's an insanely low price for such a beast of a machine!

Don't be put off by the Advent brand - this is infact a rebadged MSI machine.

If only I needed a gaming laptop........... though need is such a strong word......

If this deal doesn't reach 500 degrees, i'm going to boycott hukd for the next week!

It's OOS so soon to be expired, Enjoy your week away from HUKD lol

I ordered one from PC World. Maybe the only one?!

3% Quidco, 1% Credit Card cashback makes it £479.99 I think

I've got confirmation e-mail, so fingers crossed it doesn't get cancelled.

Glad I ordered early, as although Dixons gave 0.2% cashback more (£1) I'd forgotten my password, and they were taking ages to e-mail so I went to PC World instead.

Are Currys, PC World & Dixons the same? Maybe they only had a couple in stock across the whole group?

Thanks again to OP, and hopefully I'll get it, as have been scanning the laptop deals for weeks and this looks great.

I got one into my basket @ Dixons... went through the enire payment process including bank-authorizing the payment - clicked confirm, and it gave me the out of stock screen >

Maybe they'll magic more stock from somewhere...

Damn sold out!

Looks like you got the last one
All 3 websites now state OOS.

I'm so glad they're out of stock.
I certainly don't NEED one, but would probably have ended up buying one anyway...

same here, but now i am feeling i should have had bought it.

I'm sure other spectacular deals will come up in the next few weeks, now that retailers are having to clear un-free-upgradable Vista stock.

10 minutes and expired.
Must be a record.

So did anyone else manage to get one?

I figured as three seperate retailers were selling it, there'd be plenty of stock, but I think they're the same group, possibly with a central stock / ordering system so didn't want to risk it, and got in early. (feeling very lucky!)

guess being oos makes you realise how much you dont really need it! haha

You can never have too many laptops =]

TehJumpingJawa;7621728

thats true
i have 4, at one stage i had 5 :roll:
most exp one being me dell xps m1730 dual 8800gtx ect ect
this aint a bad laptop for the price but dont expect to run latest games at the highest of settings

code2006;7622026

but dont expect to run latest games at the highest of settings



:?
It can run Crysis ~40fps in high detail - what more do you need :thumbsup:

Infact, it's not too far behind my Desktop Q6600 when it's using only one of it's 8800GTXs.

This Laptop displays all settings at 7.1 or 7.2 in Win 7 performance index.

Is it worth checking in store to see if there are any of these hanging about? I'm within half a mile of a currys and within a mile of pc world - so might have a little looky if theres a chance they've got one of these...

I doubt it, that HDD wouldn't score above 6, let alone 7.

Sorry, yes, the HDD has the lowest score at 5.9, with the gaming graphics score hitting 7.2. All the rest rest are 7.1

Yes it is worth checking. This is very similar to when they released the 6555 model. Online they were showing OOS but when i went into the pcworld store they had so many on the system in different stores even though these were not shown on the website.

Good luck

I noticed they have the same item refurbished & in-stock ]here, but is priced at £799.99, £300 more than the item new!

I had a talk to the customer sales line, but unfortunately they were unwilling to reduce the refurbished model to match or beat the new model
Worth a try though!

PCWorld sales line wouldn't do it either ^^

Apparently the only 2 stores in the UK reporting any stock are Brighton & Croyden.
Both have only 1 (so possibly phantom stock), and the Brighton one is a customer return - so maybe faulty/unable to sell.
