Default Where should i look for a heavily reduced laptop in the january sale?

I'm thinking bout buying a lappy for school work and maybe some gaming in the january sale?

What are the best deals that can be found for around 400-500?
Where is the best place to look for good computing reductions this time of the year?

currys have a dell laptop for 399, 4gb ram, c2d, 250gb hdd, cant remember the rest.
they seem to be offering some great deals atm, along with pc world. im looking to buy a new lcd tv (might have to make a thread), and ive been browsing a lot, and have found that amazon and other sites arnt really cheaper, so its worth going in store, or using a discount code online.

Having just come from the thread about yy2.com i was on David's search engine so i used that instead of Google to search for PC world.... Urm...

Safe to say their could be a lil more indexing work needed. Lol

I saw the ad for that PC world lappy. I'm gunna go check the GPU on it.

Edit: They've got a 399 acer Gemstone (their gaming range?) really nice looking, 4gb ram and a 160gb HDD but it's got Intel shared graphics.
