Good deal?

Honestly that Samsung is not near as good as the others I linked. It is bigger, but the CPU is last gen, GPU isn't as powerful and the battery life is probably going to suck. I would get the ASUS N53 personally.

its the price difference mainly, those that you linked either arent for sale, or are way expensive in the UK, I figured for £570 the R780 is a bargain.

This is stretching your budget a bit, but I think it is worth it. The Intel HD 3000 graphics are quite good for integrated. The CPU is a beast and will handle anything you throw at it.

I think I've decided on the Samsung p580, its got a 330m gpu and an I3 cpu, for the price I don't think anything comes close. £550.
