Been shopping for a laptop recently and I spotted this refurb on the Currys website.

For those looking for a 15" that's a monster of a machine @ a bargain price.

Oh hang on - your title is wrong.

".....£529.69 if using voucher and quidco"

...and the deal price should not include quidco.

So this machine is £610, not £529. Quite a big difference.

Sorry just noticed the typo, corrected the price to 592.66 in the title. Err... would you believe if I said a dodgy keyboard is the reason I'm laptop shopping... Thought not!

Not a bad spec I guess, if this floats your boat.

However, core i5 CPU's perform nearly as well as I7's, and are much cheaper. Also, it's got a ridiculous 1366 x 768 pixels on a 15" screen. I can't stand that, although it's just my preference as I have good vision.
