Looks like the Q2542N-CF1 and the P2542G-CF1 have switched specs? But still if you switch the specs somethin aint right, I cannot find the Q2542N-CF1 anywhere with an i7-3517U. The specs that model should have are:

For the price of $657.61 for that sounds like a really good deal to me? I will have to pay a bit for delivery to UK and maybe imports tax, but in the end it will work out at about $800, which is about £550, and I cannot find anywhere in EU or UK a laptop with an i5 Ivy Bridge and a 2GB GT640m anywhere even close the that price.

What do you guys think?

If they don't get me on import VAT (sometimes they don't, it's like 50/50 from my experience), then it's only $770 (£470) for all those specs, that to me is amazing, something don't seem right is that site legit? Or is it a refurbished laptop? Doesn't state anywhere :/

I have never done business with them, but I did find a small, Ripoffreport.com file about them so buyer beware. I mean I suppose it's possible it's real Lenovo has a notebook that size with a GTX 660 for a round $900, but $650 seems too good to be true. Notice how it said it was a special order? so it could take up to 3 to 4 weeks, that makes me nervous. Id save up and go with the lenovo.

this is true but I am sure you could get the same model though another provider let me know how it goes.
