using email10 10% code at currys to get it for £629 charged, if it works and the site behaves:

Yet to see a 12" ultra light and portable laptop with Core2Duo below £800 like this, a true bargain :thumbsup:

Original Poster

It's a shame Currys do not have this in stock or I suspect the £50 code listed on here would work. (Added the half price internet security thing when adding the X56 to Currys basket and it does seem to be on stock, DSG dodgy practices strike again)

This isnt a good deal at all...

Buy from currys and use the 10% code (email10) to get 10% off beinging the price to... £629.10.

Buy through quidco to save another 3% (£18.87)

This would make the total £610.23 - Now thats a good deal! Im tempted and i dont even need one!

Original Poster

AHhh thanks gary rip, not a big fan of DSG so don't know all the codes by heart

It is in stock at Currys!

I stand corrected, bloody DSG websites

Well i tried it and it worked so :P

Just need to remove from the OP.

Use the £40 off code of PERKZ40NEW from here works.


and the PRICE10 Code (thats only for TV's)

Original Poster

Gary have u seen the ad for this? overdemanding business woman in a suit bossing about the normal laptop bloke on the pc world ad, cheesy as hell, I'd be tempted myself if not for that integrated graphics which I despise, fine for most people tho, should increase battery life.

I wonder if philips or 3rd parties do extended batteries for these, ultra portable laptops like this can be made to genuinely last over 7hours with the right battery.

Doh ;-) Thanks gary_rip!

Nah i havent seen that adds and for this size of laptop you cant expect decent gfx really!

Now correct I think :roll:

HAHA... nearly... still need to remove...

Using the 10% currys code PRICE10 or EMAIL10 to get £629.10

As im told thats only for TV's - Thanks rayman!

It will handl HD DVD, but would it really make a difference on a 12" screen? On top of the the external drive will be really loud.

It's a light portable notebook, if to be used with films, most likely with headphones too

Is anyone got this yet?
Is it good?
Please tell us.

Hi All

It is a great spec for the money and thanks to the OP.

However, I went to have a look at it on the weekend and must say it looks and feels cheap. Even my girlfriend thought it looked cheap and she knows 'jack' about laptops.

I would have bought it if it had appeared more robust and stylish.

I know that aesthetics should not really come into it, but it is not an entry-level machine.

Moved on to similarly priced Sony, Tosh and HP and the difference was very noticeable especially with HP DV2000 range, but then you would lose the spec for a similar price.

Really is up to individual taste.


One of my colleagues took delivery of a Philips X56 today, and I was quite surprised at how good the build quality was. Feels like a very sturdy unit, and the display is very good for this price bracket. Certainly a step up from the Advent / Acer laptops around the £500 mark - the keyboard has a very solid feel rather than the rather flexible nature of some units.

Again, as the previous poster highlights, look and feel is subjective, but I use a lot of different laptops in my job and I have a very good initial impression of this one.


Available for less than £600 at dixons website with codes ph10(-£75) and theaa25(-£25) plus the usual quidco! :giggle:
