OK

If you had £430 to spend on a laptop at Currys or PC World (i know same difference), which one would you go for and why?

Can only be at these shops, so don't say 'There's a great deal at so and so's'.

I can only buy at these stores.
PC World

or

Currys

Come on techies, help me out smile

but if i had to choose..the Advent 6552 is 399 quid at both.
17 inch screen is ok...but its only a dual core...
3GB ram is acceptable...and the mediocre 250 harddrive is liveable with for that kind of cash

The Advent mentioned seems the best option.

If you get it from PCW don't forget to use Quidco for 2% cashback (internet and 'collect at store' purchases only).

PC World (and Currys for that matter) have a price match promise: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/editorial/price-match-promise so buy via quidco, collect at store, then see if you can get it cheaper at other retailers on the list - esp if buying down at Brom' as there is Comet, Asda and Tesco Home on the doorstep.

FWIW if going over 3GB RAM you start to need a 64bit OS. In fact MS have limited the 32bit versions of Vista to only see up to 3.12GB RAM by default.
