Just been to Staples and they have the above which is a badged Medion. Specs P4 2MHz,15.2 widescreen tft, 512 ddr, 64mb MX440 nVidia graphics,40g h/d, win xp home, dvd/cdrw with ext. controls for dvd w/o having to go into windows for £999. Its a mobile processor btw. Nearly tempted there and then and thought I'll think it over first. A £1000 is not peanuts. I think its a very good offer though considering the specs.
The one I bought is MD2552 which is well equiped to do everything basic + playing games and some video editing. I love the very good 15.2 widescreen which comes with it. 64ddr GeForce4 MX M Go graphics displays very good images for games and DVD playback. On offer at £999 reduced from £1200.
