these are some great shouts. ordering now!
I got the first one but I had a 10% discount code from moneysavingexpert.
A must buy in fact.
The Intel Core i7-2675QM that's listed on the spec sheet is about to be replaced by the Intel Core i8-2675TT so I'd hold out for that.
The AMD Radeon HD 6750 is also a bit dated and won't handle the latest games.
I'd also suggest a slightly bigger hard drive. 750GB sounds like a lot but it'd be quickly filled up.
Apart from that it looks ok though.
when you can get massive external ones for the same price as a small upgrade on the internal one?
Maybe if he gets the second one he linked to which is slightly cheaper he could afford to splash out on a massive external HD.
I ordered my laptop to be delivered into a shop, and they said it would take 1-2 weeks. It's currently on 13 days. It would be obnoxious to phone up and be all 'when is it coming?' right? Yeah.
BUT SERIOUSLY I NEED IT GIVE IT TO ME NOW IT'S KILLING ME. KTHNX.
Everyone seems to think it's ugly. Seemingly everything not looking like a MacBook is ugly now. I hate MacBooks. They're the ugly ones. This is beautiful. Not some stupid little piece of tin.
Please, please, please let it come today. Really not gonna survive this much longer.
Okay, I might ring up and make some excuse for needing to know how soon it will be. Maybe I gave them the wrong phone number or something?
Not that I think there's anything wrong with how Macs look either.
but they get cold as fuck in winter. Everyone seems to hate on the F series for being expensive for being plastic, but I'm all for it. YAY PLASTIC GO PLASTIC.
Then when you wake up fucking hungover you can press the cold, cold metal to your forehead.
If you've paid hundreds of pounds for something it's your god-given right to know where it is and when it's arriving.
but I'm totally going to have to come up with some 'can I give you an additional phone number as I'm likely to be out a lot ohandbytheway have you definitely not received it?' type excuse. I'm ridiculously lame.
just phone them up and harangue them in your screechiest voice possible, making sure you ask the question several times, cutting them off mid-sentence to do so if necessary.
They're going to find out and call back. If it's going to be more than 5 days then I might have a go at repeatedly knocking myself unconscious. Or just killing myself.
I've totally hijacked this thread, huh?
Liars. They've blatantly stolen it.
Or else someone somewhere has screwed the order up and they're too scared to talk to me.
Or maybe they're just very busy at the moment. But they never seem very busy...
I'd ring it to check, but then they might phone back at the same time :-(
"Hi, I phoned earlier and someone said they'd phone me back, but...".
Like, one hour? Two hours?
What if they're reading this thread and are laughing at me...
EVERY FIVE MINUTES.
Even if you are on the phone to them at the point the next call should be made, hang up and phone them back.
Can you phone for me?
It's working. Hopefully they didn't try phoning during that 1-2 seconds.
what's their number, the order number, the name of the person you first spoke to and probably your address and credit card details in case they do a security check.
Can't you just pretend to be my mum or my dad or something? Then they'd HAVE to tell you.
Is this grounds to demand a free mouse, or keyboard skin?
I HAVE NEVER EVER HATED LIFE THIS MUCH.
FUCK YOU SONY.
Actually can't believe this. If I could get my money back and go get another laptop today I would. Going to go to bed before I end up hitting stuff.
Pretty much the worst day ever.
If when I bought something (configured) I was told it would take between 1 and 2 weeks, and it's now going to take a MONTH, then do I have a right to cancel the purchase and get my money back? Or because they've already made it am I obliged to wait...
bought it had I known it would take a month. And their excuse sounds suspect to say the least.
could contact watch dog
The same configuration is now £100 cheaper.
of 2 weeks, so the same as the identical but £100 more expensive one I already ordered. Not that I trust their delivery dates.
Might try and cancel it, get a refund and then buy it again but online. Or just stay far away from Sony. I really, really can't be dealing with all this at the moment.
I could at least get the £100 refunded?
was in a meeting about something i cared very little about, but was apparently very important.
would be more appropriate.
Fuck sake Raanraals, first all that god business and now this, i don't know.
<pat on back>
it'll be fine.
but i was thinking of buying this camera http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004G8Q600/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1
however if i could afford it i would spend serious money and kill several members of my family for a samsung series 9 wotsitmajig.
it's probably a knock off, best avoided.
there are some (what i assume are) newer models but they're only 200 quid themselves (on the fujifilm site)
for the laptops further up thread.
I apologise profusely, if not sincerely.
It does look like a nice camera in all honesty.
tbh, a million pounds is a fair price for those specs......
the fact that it takes AA batteries puts me off though...would have to spend an absolute fortune on them.
bugger that then.
