We connect lappys to tvs alot,

would have to be a hd tv i for blueray movies.

£399 on play .com with free delivery :thumbsup:

The play.com £400 one is a 1.5GHz model - up to you if you want a slower machine at lower cost or £90 more for the 2.0GHz chip. Also the play.com one has 2GB RAM whereas the PC World one has 3GB RAM.
Personally I'd go for the faster one from PC World.

This might not be important to you, but if you want to use this laptop for much gaming, then the 9300M is rather weak in that aspect. However as a laptop for watching movies and other less graphics intensive activities it is a good buy, especially with a 17" screen and a blueray reader.

This laptop was £360 with vouchers on dixons 3 weeks ago. Was 'refurbished' looked immaculate and new.
