Dixons knocks £200 off laptops before Xmas...

...but angles to get it back in the new year

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Dixons chains Currys and PC World will knock £200 off the price of a new notebook, provided you buy it this month.

And when you hand over your cash, the two DSG brands will also give you a £50 voucher to spend on software and accessories, Dixons said today. You'll also get £15 toward apps sold through its KnowHow App Centre, the software-centric virtual shop it leases from Intel.

Dixons £200 off offer

The deal doesn't apply to refurbished notebooks, and anyone hoping to get themselves a cut-price Apple MacBook will be disappointed, but Dixons' deal covers everything else.

The only gotcha we can see: the £50 voucher is emailed to you, so keep an eye on your spam filter. The voucher can only be used from 6 to 29 February 2012, and you have to spend at least £200 to claim it - so you can see how Dixons hopes to get most of its discount back... ®
