    I am looking for one for my son with the following rough spec;


    • i7 CPU prefered
    • 8GB RAM or more
    • HDD 500GB 7200 rpm or more (possible SSD)
    • Wifi N 2.4ghz
    • DVD RW
    • 15" screen or more (depends on price)


    He would like to play some games on it but nothing to major so really as good as can be would be great.

    Not sure if they'll do so high spec machines - but Argos seem to have some decently priced laptops in lately... Might be worth a look?

    And a 32" TV for £99 - It's a Polaroid make but not bad priced!

    Was thinking about one of the TVs, but if they're that busy here it's probably not gonna happen :/

    <rant>I hate this 'Black Friday' nonsense. It doesn't mean anything at all in the UK as most of us don't do Thanksgiving. Must we import yet another horrible consumerist USAism?</rant>

    If we got some of the discounts the USA got I wouldn't mind but we get the British version, for example MS (USA) are doing the Surface for $199 or £121 to you and me. MS (UK) however will spank you for £279.

    I was only in to get a copy of Minecraft they had plenty of blanks on the shelf but none behind the counter
    I've brought it online instead.
    The only reason I got served is that the mass at the electricals counter were all after the 'specials' and they had sent someone in the back to check stock. I think they may have only had standard stock levels in the store and were due to sell out rather rapidly.
    I have to take the kids to school on Fridays and sometimes stop off at Asda on the way in to pick up bits and pieces before work. Usually the car park is quite empty at 09:15, but today is was ram-packed and one of the cash machines had run out of money!
    It's going to be worse tomorrow I think. The last payday before Christmas is going to bring a lot of people out.
