Just want to add that the processor an Intel Pentium Dual Core T4200…829

This notebook also qualifies for the 'virtually free' upgrade to Windows 7, where you just have to pay the postage (although it's probably around £20) if purchased before the 31st Jan.

Im looking for a laptop around the Tree-Fiddy mark, and this seems one of the best, bearing in mind it has built in webcam and a HDMI port

Cant see myself getting a better deal that this, unless anybody has any ideas?

This looks a great deal for the Spec. Any comments Negative or Positive anyone?

There doesn't seem to be many 'Expert Reviews' around.

Found it cheaper by a tenner!

I might go for this one G_sus - What you thinking?

Im trying to find some way off getting a money off voucher for CCL and im getting it!

Graphics card on this is probably twice as fast but still suitable for low end gaming.

Well I ordered mine on Tuesday from Amazon at around 4pm and it was delivered today using the Super Saver delivery.

It is extremely well made and really nice looking. However my excitement was sort lived when I realised that someone called Tom had already installed Windows and created folders on it, they had sent me an item returned by somone else (which I'm sure is illegal). I have complained to Amazon and it is being returned, I demanded that they send me a new one to arrive the next working day, but they declined and said they can only send by the Super Saver post, to which I decided to cancel.

So I have just ordered it from CCL instead (good find).

Frustrating, but the laptop looked great, so if you have ordered I'm sure you won't be dissappointed, just make sure Tom hasn't been using it!

Well thats made up my mind not to order through Amazon.

Thanks for the Heads Up.

Has anyone ordered from CCL Online before?


Thank you

Drunkenness is nothing but voluntary madness.
