Default Buying a new notebook

Hello
I am after a new notebook and am limited to the type of finance I can get... I spotted this one a few nights ago and was wondering if anyone knows what the model is or if anyone has this notebook and can give me some advice please.

Personal Computers at BrightHouse

Thanks

Mark

The hardware components look good. What is the cost in US$?

It cost $1,125.71 USD. Here is a currency converter. XE.com Conversion - 790.71 EUR to USD

Also that interest rate is ridicules. I think that design of laptop is a little weird. Maybe you should consider a Dell. They should have them in Europe right?

Thanks,

Yea I just noticed that interest rate too. That is extreme! Is your credit really that bad?

This laptop is WAY overpriced. A similar laptop should cost less than $600 in the US.
I would suggest that you shop with larger online retailers like Dell or electronics department stores in the UK.
