It's been on order for 2 weeks now and I keep being told it will be in stock in a few days. I need the order to go through before the end of December as I have brought it on a credit card that will give me 10% of the price if purchased in 2011. I've asked dabs to take the money before its back in stock but they will not.
So as a fall back option I've been looking at alternatives that are in stock and found a very similar laptop at Amazon for £12 more.
The Amazon one has a core i7 with 2.2ghz where as the Dabs one has a core i5 with 2.4ghz.
I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to hardware specs so want to know:
Is the only difference that the more expensive one has a better processor (i7 compared to i5)? or is the more expensive one also an older model (S01 compared to S02)?
As stated, only difference is 2 cores/4threads vs 4 cores/eight threads. This only will effect some software. For 12 quid the i7 would be the better buy.
I have the Samsung RF711-SO1 (17 in, I5-2410m, 540m GPU, and Blu-ray/DVD-rw)
Was lucky found on sale for $750 USD (Don't you just love VAT).
My only complaint is (A) Moved the delete key - could get use to if I did not alternatly use other computers. (B) puting a USB Thumdrive (USB3) into either of the 2 USB3 ports kills the Wi-fi connection, posibly a setup proplem.
