Best deals in the sales?

Hi guys, im looking for a sub £500 laptop in the sales, so if you spotted anything special, share the love!

Manily after something to run Adobe Creative Suite and the odd game.

So far I been looking at:

HP Pavilion g6-1240sa 15.6"£399.00
i3-370M processor
Memory: 6GB
Hard drive: 640GB

Lenovo B570 £429
Processor - Intel Core™ i5 2410M - 2.3 GHz
RAM - 4 GB
Hard Drive - 500 GB

between those two, I would get the Lenovo mainly due to the better CPU, it's lighter and while the Intel HD Graphics 3000 is not the best out there it will be much better than what's in the HP. IMO the extra £30 is worth it

Thank you dc8900,

I was not sure if the 2GB Higher Ram in the HP would negate the Processor difference?

Also wondering if there will be any more price drops after new year???

PCWorld/Currys have some good looking refurb laptops for £279... similar spec is £400 new and still has a years warranty. Might be worth a punt for something that's only gonna be dropped and knocked around anyway...
