Dixons knocks £200 off laptops before Xmas...

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

Security for virtualized datacentres

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... ®
