Techradar claim 277 minutes in their test of an i3 GMA graphics version whilst notebookcheck tested an i5 310M version at 187 minutes (surfing with WLAN).

I couldn't find the machine in the deal - and the title and deal details conflict anyway... (i3-370 in title and i3-380 in details). The link goes to an i3-370 with 2GB ram and 250GB HDD.

Sorry that was my fault. I was comparing two deals and copied some of the wrong information over into the post. The original description has now been edited.

I've bought a couple of the Carphonewarehouse 1564s for the office. They are good looking machines and the i3 is a great processor especially for HD video playback..

Thinking about this myself. Is the 2gb memory large enough?

samsung nor 1564 have bluetooth but vostro does

The Vostro is a way better deal than the inspiron @ carphone warehouse. The Vostro has a 7200rpm HDD, Bluetooth, eSATA port. The one here looks better to me though. It has the lesser i3-350M but has a bigger 3Gb RAM.

Now trumped by lenovo @ ebuyer
