While this is only Vista, I am pretty sure it will be eligible for an update to 7 for free, stock is low but I am sure there are a few around, as I have managed to get one

Lovely laptop, I am using it now, just like a mac but you can actually use it lol!!!

INSTORE ONLY!!

Don't wish to burst your bubble, but you can get the one with Windows 7 and 500GB hard drive for the same price direct through Sony.

I think the one they are looking at is quite similar, but it has intel integrated graphics, this one has a proper graphics chip in it, that will actually play some decent games.

Trusted reviews have given this laptop a very good review, and for the first time, the sony bloatware is not getting in the way of the performance.

Don't really see why this is cold, looks a good spec with dedicated graphics. hot from me

:thumbsup:

Seems hot to me to. Dedicated graphics with 4GB RAM on the Sony brand is a good deal.

I really do not think a lot here understand the difference dedicated graphics memory (no matter how small) makes a difference, even in general all round computing. Its generally the one thing manufacturers leave out to make a laptop show other good specs and keep the price down. H&R

edit: forgot to say, only thing letting down is no Win7. But if free upgrade then really worth considering if within your price range, but maybe some1 else can confirm for sure if available or not?

You can pay by paypal though ^_^

The price appears to include VAT too, but not shipping - which is an extra £20.
I'm sorely tempted.... but at that price it must be a scam; that or it's the best laptop deal ever found!! (next best price appears to be £1200-1300)

If you get this from sony they will give you FREE upgrade to Windows 7 for the same price as argos. So I would think you should get a free upgrade to Windows 7 with this argos one IF you can find one in stock.

back that up ogh lol cant supended

This is a lovely laptop I must admit, more people need to get it. The graphics chip really does make all the difference to the overall performance.

Do you think Sony centres would match the Argos price. Or can anyone find this laptop any cheaper anywhere else.
Trying to search on an ipod touch. Not the easiest Of things to do.

That's folks

Hmm I dont know, perhaps. Best thing is to call them tomorrow.

One thing I will say about the above comment that Sony's are amazing, I like to call them windows macs, because in my opinion they are the closest thing to macs with windows on them!!

aagh, no stock in all the areas I've tried (London stores & several in East Anglia)! If anyone finds stores with stock that I might have missed I'd appreciate a heads up!

Thank you will keep looking.
Had a look at one similer in pc world. They seem to be In a different league to other makes I've looked at.

After doing a little searching, there is one in neath, south wales.

just to let you guys know for £500 its not bad, i purchased one afew months ago for £650 and it came with a upgrade to windows 7 which cost £20
its not a bad laptop but the build quality is very shabby compared to other sony vaio's ive used
it looks nice but compared to a dell studio or to other vaios the build quality isnt very good
The Mouse pad is real annoying it isnt a smooth one but one with aload of bumps on it and the screen isnt as good quality as the dell studio which cost the same price at the time
but for £500 i think you can forget about those problems because i paid £150 extra for the one im using now
Oh and it has audio out through the hdmi if that helps =]

Will ring ArgoS tomorrow. See if they can do anything.
thanks folks

solid scores, decent machine

Argos Clearence Bargains eBay store has the T4300/3GB/320GB model going for £375 currently. Its listed as refurbished but this just means its open box or customer returns, still comes with a full warranty. I've ordered one for a family member who wanted a new laptop. Looked at the Samsung Comet deal but it has a weaker processor and is more or less the same price.
