Good afternoon all, hopefully this Monday has given you a good start to the week, even if it is just a little overcast. For those of you who are familiar with our blog and the days we post bits and pieces. Monday is the day we post the details of items we have on special offer, mostly because our offers are weekly, and it’s better to make sure people are aware earlier
Anyway, this week we’ve got some nice items on offer, including a lovely HP notebook, a GPS from Garmin and a Samsung Home Cinema setup. Without further ado, we’ll get straight to them.
HP 615 NX560EA:
HP’s 615 is an elegant 15.6” machine, all black plastic, including a particularly elegant keyboard. In case you’ve not noticed, we’re kind of fanatical about keyboard quality here. All that said, you tend not to get too far with a notebook bought on looks alone, so we should probably go over the specifications too.

The 615 boasts an AMD Athlon X2 dual core processor, 2GB of RAM, a six cell battery and an ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics card, which should get you a lot further than notebooks using the plain old Intel GMA. It’s also got a 320GB hard drive, which means that you don’t need to worry too much about running out of space either.
All that aside, it comes with Windows Vista Home Basic installed by default, which means that if you pick it up you should be good to go with an upgrade to Windows 7 when it launches without too much difficulty (whereas Windows XP users will be forced to do a format and reinstall or upgrade to Windows Vista and then to Windows 7 from there, which is a bit of a headache).
At €459 the HP 615 NX560EA is pretty cheap, especially considering the fact that it’s such a good-looking machine. If you’d like to check it out in more detail, you can head over to our product page for it
