    So you think that it is an average price? I don't really want to spend over £400 and want to get a laptop with the best specs available. How much would you say its worth?

    maybe give a model name and number would be helpful as it might be cheaper elsewhere,

    It would help if you stated the brand, as Sonys are worth more than say Acers. But judging from the specs it isn't a great deal, just the average price that you would pay for a laptop of those specs. There's been a few hot deals on laptops on here recently.

    Actually that's a decent deal. (_;)

    But have a look here you can get slightly better specs for £5 more

    I bought this yesterday, there's a deal for it on here.

    There's also a 40 off code and 6% quidco/tcb. 340 odd I think, which makes it an excellent price

    Hi there, do you have a link?
    EDIT: I have just paid for it using the 10% code. I logged into Quidco then went to the Dixon's website - how does Quidco trace the 6%? I've applied but never used it before.

    Im guessing Quidco will take a day or so to track.
    I noticed it said Black in the item description but showed a blue laptop in the pictures.

    Lets hope I get a black one

    It links to a blue one. If you search the model there's also a black one, I've e-mail them to ask to change to black
