    Heh, I was waiting for this after seeing your news post a few weeks ago, for the 610. This the UK model? great price in argos, 500 quid for core i3 and nvidia 1gb graphics with an LED screen?

    Interesting about the hard drive choice, thats why reviews are so helpful.

  • Joanish

    Fair and unbiased review with good technical data. 5,400 rpms should be ditched completely in these machines, especially with a core i3 processor! fine in a playstation 3, but this? no way.

    Still its worth buying, the 2.5 inch 500gb could be taken out and used in an external drive caddy as a storage drive and a smallish SSD slotted in. Would make sense for me, and with the 100 quid saved, it covers most of the SSD cost.

    the styling is great. the specs are good, and the price is brilliant,. I saw that on argos last week and wondered if it sucked. thanks for the review via google !

    Ordered it, but ive no idea how to change out the hard drive, hopefully its ok for me, im not that picky :p

  • MancHound

    yay! my parents are buying me this for christmas,. thank god its good..

  • Tri Color

    That price is hard to fault really. I would like a smaller 7,200 rpm drive though, thats about it.
