And a 2 year warranty.:thumbsup:

Looks good. Must be some free delivery codes knocking about somewhere too :thumbsup:

On the m&s site under delivery it says something about free delivery on items over £150 - this may only be on certain items over that amount though.

Quidco too - think it's 5% - takes the price down to about £505 i think.

Does anyone know the definite model number as there are quite a few in the eb range, well as far as i can see anyway!!

Hot deal to me. Cheers OP

How good is the processor and graphics card?
Can any tech-smart guy enlighten me?
Thank you in advance...

Same found here for £500 @ insight BUT 3gb ram and smaller HDD

the specs are actually pretty good, the video card is slightly better than the usual ones we see on deals (like the Dell Studio models), it's a good card and will play most modern games fine, just don't expect anything to run on the highest settings.

the processor is one of the new i3s which are excellent in my opinion

for people who want to avoid dell and other cheaper brands, this looks like an excellent deal.

Just browsing the Delivery and returns tab of the link, it says

"UK next or nominated day delivery £4.95. FREE for orders over £150 when you enter FREENDAY at checkout. Find out more"

So FREENDAY should sort the delivery fees for anyone interested in this.

Heres a link to a review of what I think is the same model from pcpro:

]http//ww…s0e

I think this and the core i3 version of the samsung R580 are both a good purchase at this price point.

Cheers Neil_Coombes. I looked at that review this morning and when the review was carried out the price was £656 (inc VAT) so the 'value for money' stars would increase by at least one at this price M&S are offering or possibly two stars. In other words if reviewed at this price then the overall review could only be better I would have thought??

The only thing for me is the reports of poor battery life. Reviews say about 3 hours. What do people think??

Does anyone own this laptop who could give their personal opinion??

Cheers (sorry for all the qu's)

this is really great deal. Else where this laptop is £599

I ordered as well, few hours before you, delivery code worked. Did you select the right delivery option?

Tracked with quidco, great deal. Best value Vaio deal around at the moment that I've seen and have been looking into the past couple of weeks.

3 hours' battery life is pathetic!

Good Deal...hot from me.

EDIT: I believe M&S cocked up specs, all UK EB series come with gig Ethernet and n WLAN

3 hours' battery life is pathetic!



For this specification and price, it's pretty much the average.

Ordered one and get delivered by Friday!
Not just hot, but spicy too!!;-)

sony.co.uk/pro…res

Its here on the sony site, the price isnt listed

Anyway it says the battery is nearer to 4 hrs not 3 and it has wireless n according to the sony site which is important.


Good deal, perhaps a touch on the heavy side

Hot from me!

I recently purchased my first Vaio (albeit a different model to this), but am well pleased with it. The build quality and "chiclet" style keyboard are superb. Mine came with Vista 32 but soon dumped that for Windows 7 64 and runs superbly well. The display is great and even some of the Sony bundled software is pretty neat - just dump anything you don't use or need.

It says Out of Stock now

I think this is a steal, to be honest. Sony's notebooks are quite reliable and the aesthetics are second to none. The price point is around the average for a spec of this standard but it's unusual to get a Sony for this sort of price. I have ordered, QuidCo has tracked at £26.45 too which is a welcome bonus.

just received mine and it is the wrong model. M&S got the description wrong

Its the 320gb, 3GB version as opposed to 500Gb, 4Gb with ATI graphics

Oops. Phone them up and demand the right one or just send it back for a refund, actually get them to collect it from you so your not out of pocket.

Will be interesting to see if anyone else gets the right or wrong one.

Edit: It's oos now.

oh..no.. stupid M&S. did you call them? I ordered it yesterday and I am wondering whether to cancel it. Is there a number to call for cancelling orders or enquiring about the item?

technology customer service centre on 0845 671 0665

on the phone with them now. will keep you updated

I was annoyed to have missed the deal that I rang up M&S Marble arch to see whether they had the EB Viao i3 for £529 available for sale. They did, unfortunately it was a 3 gig model with no ATI graphics card.

Very disappointed
.

shame out of stock. looked a great deal

thats a shame they got the spec mixed up. does nobody check this stuff at m&s.

Called M&S and they are sending a courier to pick it up and have it returned for a full refund.

Unfortunately as the original item (500Gb model) is out of stock (they had no idea if it would come back) they cannot send out a replacement one with specs as decribed by them. Obviously an error from their side - price was too good to be true! Pity

Thanks for the update. I ordered it with standard delivery, so need to wait for couple of days to check the spec. But I very much doubt I'll get the higher spec model. :x

What about the "sale of goods act" when they accept your order and agree to delivery within a certain time frame they are obligated to honour the said agreement , i.e. What you ordered at the price agreed.

I've just been on the phone to M & S customer services and was told that the case where the wrong model had been sent was an accident, the website description was correct and I would be sent the 4GB/500GB model as advertised.

Hope this is true and this info helps someone.

Don't worry mate, all you missed out on was massive disappointment and a time waste.

I received mine this morning, EB1E0E model like the others got with lower spec ram, hard drive and graphics card.

Called around M&S support and stores and seems all are this model. Don't think they ever stocked the EB1S0E which is what this should have been for the specs to match.

Have asked for refund, gave me £20 credit online but still bitter .....

I am awaiting delivery of my laptop to see which model I get but just to let anyone know if they wanted one they are back in stock.:)

back in stock
