EXPIRED

Can anyone beat this price for this spec laptop?

Hi guys, I'm looking at a new laptop, my max price is £400, but as you can see I'm willing to go slightly higher if necessary. I'm quite picky with my specs, I want a Core2Duo processor minimum of 2Ghz, 2gb of RAM or more, 160gb hdd or more.

Ive picked this one from Dell and customized it, and these are the specs:

Intel® Core 2 Duo Processor T6500 (2.1GHz, 800MHz, 2MB)
15.6" Widescreen WXGA WLED (1366 x 768) TFT Display with TrueLife
3072MB 800MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [1x2048 + 1x1024]
250GB (5,400rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive
6-cell battery
Genuine Windows Vista® SP1 Home Premium (64 BIT) - English

Price is £413.99 - I've paid £15 more for a 6 cell battery. Not bothered about 4gb of memory, im putting XP on it so 3gb will be ok.

Any clues on where I can get a similar spec laptop for a better price? No refurbs btw needs to be new.

Thanks in advance guys.

]This meets your specs for £333 del. if you can source yourself a nice xp oem licence (or pirate copy :whistling:).
If not, argos aren't too bad:

Also with argos you might be able to find unwanted gift vouchers on ebay and save yourself about 10%?

Hmm yeah didn't think about that.
Novatechs forums are pretty good though, ]this would presumably sort your driver needs.
And you could also buy the extra years waranty with them for £30? Won't be worth too much after them two years anyway?
But I mean I've had trouble sourcing parts for a samsung laptop before, depends how popular the model is I guess.

the hp laptops at ebuyer are better spec .
