    My mate brought an i7 Computer from here, of the top of my head i know it included 2gb graphics card, blue ray reader/writer 2TB storage.

    and that only came to just under £1,100 so might be also worth getting a specification from there with prices and passing it on to a edugeek supplier.

    The reason I wanted an i7 platform is simply that I don't want to be upgrading in 12 months time when the Core 2 chips are getting phased out. That and I WANT one!

    Nope. Pizza at BETT will still be on
    And I wonder if it may be doable for you all to order what CPL are knocking up for us? It won't be cheap though :/
