    Hi all, I am a bit confused and I am looking for a second opinion.

    I was just larking about online and ended up on PCworld.co.uk where I found this laptop, a sony vaio t7100 blazing red. Now I am well aware that the t7100 is a Intel Santa Rosa processor so not a legit Sony laptop name. After a bit of a look I think it is a Sony Vaio CR series laptop in blazing red colour.

    Here is what I don't get though, the CR series runs for £800+ at the best prices but PCWorld are doing this lappy for just £549. What the hell is wrong with it for that price or is this just one of those very rare moments where something is getting a hefty price cut for a short time only (in which case, don't all run at once coz I want one first!)

    Cheers for any help you can give coz I am puzzled.

    They do appear to be unavailable everywhere now, must have just missed the boat to grab a bargain. There are non at any PC world in the West Midlands, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle or London (I wasn't picking random places, I have Uni friends in all these places and they are at home now to come back this weekend, I would have called in a favour and asked them to collect).

    Its a damn shame :thumbsdow
