Similar specs to below but as a minimum Dual Core, min 1.8Ghz speed.

There is the Toshiba A200SE-24R which comes with a T5450 core2duo, 160Gb, only 1Gb ram(£13 for 1Gb from play, so not really an issue). It is a 1.66Mhz processor but looking at the processor list it's only beaten by the TL-60. Microwarehouse have it for £390+£5.90p&p, - Quidco£16.60, -£50 cashback=
£330 approx (+£13 for 1Gb of memory to make it 2Gb).
Out of your list the marshall ward seems the best value provided you don't want a webcam.

Hi,

For what's it's worth, I've done similar research to you and finally settled on your Choice 6. Think it's a good machine for the price. Did Quidco etc. and ordered it this morning for delivery tomorrow! Good luck in your choice :thumbsup:

Of those posted, I like Option 2 the best: - I'd prefer to see a core2duo in there, but the one that does has some decidedly awful intel onboard graphics.
