The free 5 year warranry also requires the uploading of the invoice and entering of the serial number. The warranty will then be emailed to you.

First deal so hope it all makes sense and my layout isn't too bad! Happy buying!

Nice find OP

Great find OP! Heat added!

Does anyone own this? I have the previous version of this ultrabook 530U3B from Costco and going to return it because it gets uncomfortably hot underneath just while watching full HD videos on Youtube. Could somebody confirm if this one does not get hot?

Nicely put-together deal, crgnclsn. Heated

Heat added. Surprised its not warmer, yo be honest...

so about £400 for this, if you take tablet price of around 160

iLike!
Tempted! My laptop is banged up a bit and due for a change. Need to see this in the flesh.

Where can I get the list of participating dealers? Thanks.

It is all dealers excluding eBay and Amazon marketplace I believe. Basically nothing second hand. Check the terms and conditions for the exact details! I am glad people think the deal is good!

Nice.

Apologies! I haven't been using HKD for too long and I have been using cashback for an even shorter time.

That means the correct total price will be approximately £588.50 (£20.47) cashback.

Sorry again.

I noticed in the specification it says the RAM is soldered. Does this mean the RAM cannot be upgraded or easily changed if broken?

I read that 1 RAM DIMM (4GB) is soldered and the other (2GB) is not.

looks a good deal to me, surprised it isn't hotter

Hmm so does that mean when the soldered RAM is broken your stuck with just the one that isn't soldered? Is there anyone out there who can enlighten me about this?

It is likely that there wouldn't be much you could do! But with the 5 year warranty Samsung will either fix it or you'll be getting a new laptop. In this day and age not many people use laptops for longer than 5 years. (Apologies to those that are using/do use older laptops.)

Technically not an Ultrabook, would be much better if it was SSD only.

Does anyone know of the WiFi issues have been sorted?

I have followed the link to the warranty page, but I am not seeing this model for the free 5yr warranty. Can anyone help me?

Thanks

It is there. Just look at the T&Cs under qualifying products. This laptop is the NP530U3C-A04UK.

Good deal for a solid laptop.

I went and checked one of these today, awful cheap plastic feel to it. Samsung cheap product again I'm afraid much better laptops than this out there..

I can't understand why companies put such bad screens into their products.

That's a brilliant deal OP - thanks for that

Yodel deliver from dabs no thanks http://rapidimg.org/server/files/50bc29430f251f30umJ.jpg

Thanks ordered one!

This... Or a macbook pro for £860. Hmmmm.

Cashback Tracked at £20.47

Does this laptop have a multi gesture trackpad for window 8 ?

Good deal ordered, 5 year guarantee did it for me.

Has this shipped to anyone that ordered?

The Tablet is worth between £100 and £130 based on current cashback deals...

This is a good deal the cheapest specced ultrabook is from fujitsu with their £100 cashback at £450, but because this one has Windows 7 Pro\ 5 Year warranty just for that it is worth paying the premium, plus you get a £100 tab, this is currently its going rate in the 2nd hand market.

Excellent deal. Heat added and bought.

Laptop received and both claims submitted.
Lets see how long it takes them to deliver on both.

hmsq8223Laptop received and both claims submitted.



This is asked with the best of intentions: is one not required by the terms of the promotion to wait 15 days after the date of purchase before submitting the claim for the tablet?

Edited by: "WaveMotionEngine" 8th Dec 2012

Hadn't realised it had to be done after 15 days, must be because returns I guess.

Will give them a call to see if it is a issue.

Thanks for pointing it out!

Same here . What do you reckon we should do ? Do you think they could reject your claim because you submitted too early ?
