If that was the Dixons in the Jervis centre (is there one anywhere else?),
that laptop has NO guarantee due to it being a managers special. I would look
at some of the lower range DELL laptops, like the Inspiron 3000, or the Sony
VAIO 700 series, and Compustore (who, they of inflated prices) do a compaq
laptop for ~999. (So you could probably find it a fair bit cheaper elsewhere,
seeing as a SoundBlaster Live (which is a dog by the way) costs £175 pounds
there, but it costs £125 in GAME (Sorry)).
Hope that helps
