What do you want to use it for?

A bit of everything not to worried about gaming got a 360 for that, but it would be nice, and just general home use.
Found this at a cheaper price point as well.

Consider this Acer 6930G T7450 at Tesco for £499 click here:

- T7450 (similar CPU to the T8100: 42nd & 44th in this list click here)
- 4Gb RAM
- 320GB HDD
- 9600M GT (slightly better GPU than the 9600M GS)
- 16" screen

So you have to ask yourself: what are you getting that's so much better in the PCSpecialist laptop (in particular), & is it really worth the £300 premium? G

cheers for the response Crossbow7 worth considering
