    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.
