how good is this deal? cant seem to find any reviews anywhere but the 2 year guarantee makes me think its a peach of a deal..

Extra 2 year warranty is worth about £120 so a good deal

"Mobile Intel GMA 4500MHD up to 1340Mb total available graphics memory with 4Gb system memory"

This has 3gb..
as far as i know.. its capable of running blu-ray and 1080p films on external HD screens but is this graphics card any good?

This isn't a bad deal in all fairness but about 3 weeks ago for the same price I got the A300 1BZ model from Pcworld.

It's the same spec as this deal apart from having the superior e8100 CPU and ATI 3470 GFX chip.

EDIT - The only ones on the Pcworld site now are reconditioned.
