A competitor is doing this laptop for £379 at the moment which I believe is an absolute bargain for the spec.

* AMD Athlon processor QL-64
* (2.1Ghz, 1MB Cache) mhz Processor speed
* Genuine Windows Vista (R) Home Premium
* 4GB Memory
* 320 GB Hard Drive
* Up to 3 hours battery life
* Webcam
* Dolby Sound Room

Also comes with an ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4570 and apparently a BD-ROM :D

Seriously, what's the catch? I know it's only dual core but it seems like a ridiculously cheap price.

No catch, apart from if it goes wrong, try asking PC **** to replace it. They will have you arrested:D

But is a bargain.

That's quite cheap, but it's an Athlon processor and they're not as fast as the Core 2 equivalents. That's the only catch I can see though.

By the way, it does not have B-R drive;)
