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

Thank you so much UncleMike for the information. Just got my brand new laptop from the interdiscount in Dattwil. A whopping 399 CHF.

Much appreciated.

(I really hope this thread doesn't get removed.. I don't work for Interdiscount, or profit from this, but it's the best PC offer I've seen..)

On the front cover of Interdiscount's new flyer, they have a Samsung 15.6" i5 laptop for sale, reduced from 899 to 699 CHF. But, if you view the flyer on their website, then click on this model to see it's details, they have a further 300 CHF discount voucher available there.

The details say that this model is out of stock for delivery, and not available in the stores... but this is a brand new flyer (valid from today), and I've just been along to the "Sihlstrasse 34, Zurich" store at bought one. They had stock (and there's one on display), and they happily accepted the voucher.

I'll scan in the receipt if you want !

399 CHF for a (very nice looking) Samsung i5 2.66GHz laptop.
You could resell it for more than that...

Just installed English, removing Norton now
Sorry being a bit dumb, here - English is a default language for installation?

[... and is it pre-installed with Norton? I thought that was an offer to purchase? What did you use to fully clear all traces of Norton - I've heard it leaves bits everywhere]

You have a 1 time option to select one of 4 languages. Its a 60 day offer, a big pain, hopefully its gone. Downloading AVG as I type

I just got one at Letzipark, installing updated now. Its just got 1 USB port but otherwise seems OK. I have the wrong Keyboard set at the moment!
You need to look at the left side (under the little flap). Has one HDMI and 2 USB. See photo.

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

Thanks very much, Uncle Mike.

I just started looking for a new laptop for my daughter, so your tip came at the perfect time. My wife managed to buy one from the Thalwil branch of Interdiscount.

I've just set up the PC and it works fine. By the way, you are given the option during the setup process to select English as the language for Windows.

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

Well...mistake or not. I got one and typing this on it.
Nice little laptop.
Good components, decent performance.
A bit on the upside for looks, but the build quality could be better (its actually 899 chf notebook).

I just went to the store and the told the guy I wanted this one.
The listed price was pre-300 coupon discount and he said there is a huge discount on this and proceeded to show me the coupon on the website,
which was awfully nice of him, I might add.
Anyhow, he also gave me (interdiscount promotion) the Norton All in One for half price with this. And this comes in handy since my norton subscription expired recently.

All in all, cool buy.

Thanks OP once more.

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

A good review if anyone is interested, just replace the i3 core specification with i5 core processor.

Good luck to all

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

I didn't need another computer at the house, I already have 2, but my buddy needed a new one, his 3 year old destroyed his old laptop, and my other friend wanted to buy his kid a birthday present. Thanks for the intel OP!!

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

All the links to interdiscount mentioned on this page now shows 599, not 399. So I guess they have spotted the mistake and corrected it? or is there still a chance for me to get this deal?

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

Reserved mine yesterday for 399.
Wanted to pick it up and pay tomorrow and now the new normal price is 899, making it 599 with discount.

Great deal but it was for one day only.

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

And if it is not working anymore...things are clear:
Interdiscount will sue unclemike, they will shut down EF and all of us who bought it for 399 will be forced to pay 899!

Hi!
I'm selling mine (unopened) for a little profit

So you would still pay much less for it, but a bit more (to cover my little profit ).

How's that sound for you?
