Awesome review by this guy - bear in mind the CPU speed on his review is slower than the one I'm submitting for you here (2.4G Vs 2.66G).

Biggest issues appear to be price (which should be now solved) and looks

Also The GG are offering a:
SAMSUNG S2 1TB portable (as in usb powered not mains powered) hard drive for $99

  • I was looking at the toshiba c640 deal on dicksmith for $390. But these specs are alot better for $150 more (after Amex cash back)… Was considering the lenovo deal (http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/46565) too, but this seems to be more suited for what I need!
    Thanks

    Hi guys,

    I just purchased this laptop thanks for taking the time to let me know your thoughts on the specs and quality. I happened to get 10% off it as the local store had a promo (which makes the 1TB portable hard drive also drop to $90 - will be buying that one on Monday). So the laptop cost me $630.00 cash sale.

    They also price matched a 32 inch HD TV (Hi Sense brand)with JB for me for $299.

    Am very happy with my purchase and once again their service was great. If anyone needs to see an invoice for the $630 purchase please let me know and if you do, can you also please let me know how to upload a scan image on this forum if you'd like me to do that.

    • Hey im not too sure how you can do that, but please email me a copy. At [email protected] if possible. Thats a + for you mate!

    • $630 before cash back? WOWSS Defo a great bargain you've got mate! =) I would appreciate if you could email me a copy to [email protected] Thanks in advance!

  • Hi This is excellent price ($630.00 before cashback). Not sure how you can upload invoice here but will much appreciate if you can please scan and email it to me at [email protected] Thanks

  • i've had this laptop for almost a year now (paid almost double from OW $1365 with $169 cashback)

    it's been great.. battery lasts 5-6hrs max not the quoted 8hrs

  • Hi guys and gals,

    I have emailed you individually a copy of the invoice. If anyone else wants it please let me know.

    It's an awesome laptop so far and I can't believe it's going to end up costing $530.00 :)

    • Hi crikey123, may be you can try to upload the scanned invoice by replace the deal's photo link? Can you email a copy to me at [email protected]? I am so tempted to get one as well. Thanks

    • hey mate, can you also email the invoice to [email protected]. I'm going to my local harvey norman to buy it tomorrow!!! thanks!!!

  • Me too…[email protected] Thanks man….

  • Hey crikey123, can you email a copy of the receipt to [email protected] :) Thanks in advance. i5 for the price of i3 good stuff, my daughter will be happy if they honour it.
