LENOVO G550 NTDXAUK laptop, good value if you're looking for a budget laptop; CPU is a bit slow but fine for browsing, email, documents etc.

Saves about £100 on the price from other shops (except Laskys -> £296 - see post below)

Comet voucher code "5200" may get you an extra 5% off too (see voucher codes)
WORKS - SAVES £15

And another possible 3% off if you use Quidco

# Screen size: 15.6 inches
# Processor: Intel Celeron Dual Core
# Memory (RAM): 2 GB
# Storage (hard drive): 250 GB

It's a Celeron dual-core T3300 isn't it? Maybe slow compared to an i3 - but one of the fastest celerons made.

Price is £284.05 with the mentioned code, and you can [email protected] using this.

Price will be £275.53 - if you successfully receive quidCo cashback

Good spec for the money. If only there wasn't the CTRL/Fn key switch-over I'd get it!

BTW: OP should change the price to £284.05 because anyone can get it!

coolcraig999, "sell the handycam for £100"? What ebout selling fees? That would be too much hassle for me.

No, this graphics chipset is GMA 45 00M. You need the GMA 45 00MHD chipset to play 1080p.

Laskys is the same company as Comet.

According to Comet website comes with Microsoft Office pre installed but only trial version.
Anyone know if that is fairly standard for a laptop?
How long would the trial be for?

yes and would more than likely be a 60 day trial.

Got one!
Seems fair value for what it is and appears to be well made....time will tell:)

Nice lappie!

Great laptop and great price. Good to see a deal with a decent brand instead of the cheapo ones like Dell. Hot.
