    Laptop deals

    Hi HUKD
    I was looking to gift a laptop to someone for Christmas but after searching most sites and HUKD for any deals no luck. Can anyone post a deal if they recently bought a laptop.
    I am willing to spend max £400 (incl vat and delivery). My musts in the specs include
    a dual core processor
    Win 7 home premium
    4 gb ram
    an integrated webcam
    wireless enabled
    bluetooth, graphics card and HDMI out if available would be great.

    I am not bothered about the brand or the processor make, optical drive is also not a major issue. I even looked at the Dell outlet laptops but the specs were never great.
    I know there are lots of laptops under £400 but I want the best specs possible for the money so the person I gift to will love it.

    if you need 4gb of ram, make sure the OS is WIN 7 64Bit, not 32bit otherwise you'll see 4gb ram but not be able to use more than 3.25.

    but to be fair, 3gb is more than enough for any home user

    I think the win 7 home premium is 64 bit only, I havent come across 32 bit anywhere. I know 3 gb is usually enough but the person has a HD camcorder and might wish to edit his HD videos on it hence 4 gb to be safe.

    nope it comes in both versions so worth checking the spec of the laptop thoroughly before buying.

    Try get something with a 7200rpm hard drive rather than a 5400rpm for video editing.

    [url]www.dell.co.uk/outlet[/url]. They always have some dual core laptops. I quite expected Dell to offer the 12 days of christmas deals, but as yet, they have not listed...maybe they are still in bed in the US :-)
