Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

I just checked the Interdiscount page again and to my surprise it now reflects the super discouted price 399 CHF.

http://www.interdiscount.ch/idshop/p...fsi/detail.jsf

I also attach pdf version of the page here with.

I don't think it's a mistake. Appears to be a geniune sale.

I am still wondering what could be the catch here

Damn, I'm seriously tempted, but I can't justify having another PC in the house, unless it's to replace my 2.5 yr old Core2duo..

Just reserved mine.

Take your COOP card with you. Interdiscount requires one.

Interdiscount Dietlikon guy was very confused. He will call me back in a few minutes. So stand by for more news!
One of my friend gave them a visit to pick it up on his way home. They told him that it's a mistake and the price is indeed CHF 699 !!

He is going to another near by interdiscount to try his luck !

Thought some of you may be interested to know this.

Good luck

Hmmm.. perhaps they need to have a look at their own website, where it (now) clearly says the price is 399 CHF !!

I can't see the price on that Dell deal... just the specs.


Before I'd seen this 399 CHF baby, here's the best deals I'd seen...

Fust has a great (but a bit overweight) Hewlett Packard i5-2410M 17.3" laptop, with a 1600x900 screen at 799 CHF:
http://www.fust.ch/de/nav/shop/onlin...ash=5f5fd0f664

...or they sell an Acer, with an i5-2410M processor and 15.6" screen for 699 CHF.

Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

We just got one too. OH thought it would be ideal for the young 'un at that price.
The guy said he had to chevk with the manager but they accepted it in the end so we're pretty happy.

Neuchatel Manor centre but apparently they have them in stock in all the Neuchatel stores.

Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

i went in the store today to take a look. looked ok, maybe it was a bit heavy.

then i thought, "would i actually use this"? since the answer was no, i skipped on it.

Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

Got one in lausanne XXL interdiscount.


Althought they spotted the price difference (500chf discount)-
I played fine and the manager went, etc...
25minutes later, he said OK, they verified with "centrale", made a mistake but are happy to sell it to me because of their mistake. Although they reported the price error to their "centrale".



I saw it on the shop and looked for review. I also compared the prices for such item in other countries-

It's really a bargain. It's twice the price in some countries-

As it was said the screen is "medium" quality.
The Graphic card is decent, but not for heavy gaming.

Everything else is really cool!!

so...

FOR SALE/Vaud Sorry, money's very tight at the moment -

If one can not get it because stock are expired or they refuse the discount, then I have 1, box unopened, entirely new + standard warranty + original receipt-
Wanted price: 550CHF
Of course open to negotiation!

For all who can still buy it, do so at 399chf it's a crazy huge bargain!

The following 4 users groan at CorsebouTheReturn for this post:

Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

Thanks OP - another happy bunny.

However, since I got I home, I've just had one of those buyer's remorse moments:

I've previously only bought a Dell here in CH; on-line; purpose designing the spec., and specified OS (XP Pro) in English (back in 2007).

For anyone who's bought a laptop off-the-shelf here, before, and is a bit sticky with the local languages (or just prefer English) - how does this work, now, with the OS language?
Do I have a choice, when I first load the software?

(I haven't cut the seal or opened the box, yet, just in case)

Again Dell-boy came with McAfee security suite pre-installed - never been a big fan, and had a couple of issues, so any thoughts on a good free set-up (have a couple of ideas, but interested what those in the "know" may recommend).

Thanks to all you knowledgeable IT bods for sharing.

Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

Just wondering if this would be a performance upgrade to my current machine, Core2duo 8600 and an onboard 9600M GT Gpu. HDD and RAM are the same. Any ideas? Bought mine for 1400.- 2.5 years ago
