great price if you can get one:)

i paid £216 for a simler spec one and that was for a refurb!

sold out at tottenham and staples corner....

Sold out in Gateshead.

They have one in Sunderland but it's got no power supply (and won't work?).

Hartlepool don't seem to know.

Oh well, would have been a good Chrissy pressy for my niece.

:pirate: CJ :pirate:

Still full price in Aberdeen

Hmmm Vista Home Premium and only 1gb ram - not good.

Would need upgrading imo

Or install Linux

Not true.

So am I and neither of you is really "wrong". For a light user (like my parents who only use internet, mail, Word) 1GB is enough for Vista - but only just. If you start using several applications at once or do a lot of image or video manipulation you will soon find 1GB is not enough. I find I need 2GB as does my daughter. A RAM upgrade to 2GB shouldn't be very expensive anyway.

P.S. A lady at Staples in Coventry just told me that there are none at this store and by the looks of it, none anywhere else apart from Exeter!

sold out in london

Any signage relating to the Laptop will still say the full price- the low price is only to be found on flyers at the front of the store, and then when it is scanned through the tills. It's going back up to £350 after Tuesday, I'm told.

None at Crawley or Horsham

Just spoke on the phone to a very helpful guy in Liverpool shaw st. He checked their system but said they had all sold out in last few days and confirmed 3 other stores in Merseyside had all sold out, inc. Southport:x

How can this be a Hot deal......................its expired ,sold out,none left

Just went to cheltneham store and they had just sold out the guy said a lady had been in about 10 mins before me and bought three i asked him to phone other stores in the area who also had none. After moaning at him for afew mins he bent down and pulled out a fijitsu siemensfrom under the tills not sure of the spec as havent brought it in from the car yet for £197 it was almost as if he was saving it for himself and just wanted to get rid of me. Thanks heat added and repp. xxx

All sold out in Manchester but went to the Staples at Regents Rd and they had 5 Fajitsu/Siemans laptops for £197 on display.

1GB of ram on vista = a big no no!

I would use the following guide to optimise: blackviper.com/Win…htm

I have 4GB of 1066MHz ram installed on my laptop yet still find vista starts up pretty slow.
The min I would go for on vista is 2GB.

If you want to keep 1GB go for XP instead.

The reason it starts up slow has nothing to do with the memory on board. In fact the more memory you have the longer it will take as all the memory has to be initialised on startup, even though we are talking milliseconds these days.

Try cutting down on all the unnnecessary services on bootup/[email protected] installed by the manufacturer.

There were 5 left in the Grimsby store when I called and reserved one earlier this afternoon

Phoned Gateshead,Sunderland and Hartleppol with no joy :x
Finally got one from Stockton :thumbsup:. It was an half hour drive each way but well worth it.
Great little laptop. Using it as i type :-D

Glad to hear some of you got it The offer is actually "Laptops from £197" so I'm not surprised to hear there's at least one more available at that price.
