I wonder is John Lewis will price match (to £499 without code?)

You're right. Not as good as an iPhone!!

The screen resolution is the worst thing here. 15" is too big for 1366x768, especially on a laptop where Blu-Ray is a selling point (I wouldn't expect full HD, but the more the better).

Still a hot deal though.

Depends on the sales adviser. John Lewis now have an escape policy from all price matches in that they only have to match deals with the same two-year guarantee, which pretty much no-one else does.

better to have decent processor then 6gb useless ram

Seriously tired of hearing this 1366x768 is too poor argument, its completely acceptable and its 720p+ most and I mean the vast majority of users will not care or worry about it, and even those tech savvy enough to care will just spend the extra on a higher res screen most people buying these machines do so for Web, Office, Email etc at the end of the day its a laptop and 1440x900 or even 1080p res wont make your email look better!

Same comment comes up on pretty much every laptop deal with a 15" screen. Basically this is the industry standard resolution for them, as such is installed in the vast majority. I am not saying that this is right as something around 1600x900 would be far better for most users. Unfortunately though the complaint is pointless unless you can suggest similar priced and spec'd models with a better resolution.

Similar price? Trust a Man City fan to have no concept of money

Just throw enough money around and hope it works ehh? Sounds familiar.

Acceptable? Yes (just). Preferred? No.

The majority of users don't care... because they've never had the opportunity to see anything better. Once you've experienced a 14-15" screen with something more, you'll realise the benefits a higher resolution brings in terms of productivity (being able to put two windows side by side, such as two word documents - at a decent resolution where you can see both without having to keep scrolling around on both - is a huge benefit). Even viewing photos - photos are now several megapixels in size, so a larger screen helps you view them better too.

It's not about it "looking better" at a higher resolution, it's about working better.

If you haven't got an iPhone, you haven't got an iPhone.



Depends what you're using it for mate. Typically 17" screen laptops are used by professionals. They don't have any real benefits over a 15" screen in the consumer market. If anything I'd go for the 15" for increased portability and likely a better battery life. But I'm happy with a 10" netbook when I'm on the move; so there you go.

The fact that I voted hot means that I don't think there are cheaper alternatives out there, but I don't see why that renders my comment pointless? I'm just engaging in wider discussion and voicing my opinion... that's what I do here. Otherwise I just click up and down arrows all day.

Typical response of someone who has no idea what they are talking about.

I've used 1920x1200 screens on 15" laptops for over 5 years, going back to a 1366x768 screen is like looking at the world through a letter box sat 2 feet away from the letter box.

A suggestion download 2 identical wallpapers 1 for a 1366x768 screen and 1 for a 1920x1200 or 1920x1080 desktop, open them in their native resolution (not stretched or squeezed), you see how much more screen real estate you get.

This deal is so cold I don't know where to begin,

Given you can get i3's and i5's at this price the processor is not cost competitive.

6Gb of ram is irrelevant 99% of programs or even lots of high memory programs, you will not fill it. Nor will you see any performance benefit over 4gb.

The graphics card is useless.

Why fit a bluray drive without 1080p?

Not worth the premium, cold cold cold.

In fact this deal is so cold my pc just froze

Does anyone know if this comes with a warranty?
