Well it is probably best described as a middle spec laptop.

Not the most powerful you could buy, but not the worst either.

It has a 17" screen which will make it larger and heavier than a 15" laptop, but this may be fine if you dont plan to carry it around a lot.

You dont say what you plan to pay for it, but I would guess between £350-£400 would be about right for it.

If you can get it for £350 it is a good deal, but dont pay over £400 for it.

Middle spec? That's low-spec laptop. It is reasonable though, and at around the price guilbert suggested it should be a good buy.

And yes, a 17" machine isn't going to be that portable. If you're going for a laptop because you want a mobile computer then you'll probably want something smaller.

Thank you for the advice - I'm looking to buy from Argos £399.99

Hi!!!
I don't think so its a better config laptop for £400 to go with. Firstly processor is T3400 which is not that fast. cache mem is just 1mb and worst let down is 160 gb hard-drive. If you can spent £50 more u can get a great spec laptop from HP. The link for the laptop is

just wait for a couple of days untill u find some currys, pcworld or dixons voucher to get some more discount. I hope u will agree with me.

Spec isn't everything, you do have things like build quality and screen quality to consider. Unfortunately, you can't tell how they compare unless you can find a side by side review or see both laptops in the flesh.

No, a low spec laptop would have a Intel Celeron or AMD Sempron CPU and only 1Gb of memory (there are laptops like that around).

This has a Pentium dual core and 2Gb of memory (though not a core 2 duo I will admit).

I guess "middle spec" covers a lot of ground, and this might be nearer the lower end of middle spec, but it is not a bad laptop (not a great bargain either though).

Those are 'don't touch with a pole unless you plan to run Linux' spec. This is about the minimum spec most people seem to be recommending to buy these days, and if that doesn't quality as low spec then I'm not sure what does.

Medium spec would be a 1066Mhz FSB Core 2 Duo with 4GB of memory, high-end is a Core 2 Quad or Core 2 Extreme with 8-16GB of memory.

There's nothing wrong with it being low-spec of course, if you don't have very demanding requirements such as office work and web browsing then you should be going for a low-spec laptop.

Hi mate!!!
if spec isnt a criteria then i think its better to go with any laptop. Technically speaking, spec is the only thing that matters. review can be checked on cnet, revoo websites. as far as built is concerned, the laptop i suggested comes from HP so has to sturdy and reliable.

That's an odd view, personally I'd put usability above spec. A laptop that gets too hot or noisy, or has badly placed ports, a dim screen or poor keyboard isn't worth suffering for a quite large improvement in spec for me.

Hey mate, just tell me how u r going to check every laptop on the basis of your views? are u going to a shop and ask the assistant to give u a laptop for a day or so so that u can check everything?? I think the best way to find the usability is by checking the reviews. Even every outlet provides u a facility of 28 days moneyback guarantee. If u r not satisfied with the performance u can ask for a change or refund as u r investing quiet a lot of money in it. But still Specs plays the foremost role.
Cheers!!!
