I was looking for the best laptop I could get for £400 and this looks like a leading contender. Am keen to get an Asus or Toshiba based on the reliability reports, and this looked like a good all rounder and very positive reviews all over the internet.

OK, in an ideal world I'd like an i3 processor but at this price it looks like this would do a more than capable job.

Would welcome others thoughts.

Various reviews here: http://www.testfreaks.co.uk/laptops/asus-x5dij/

Appreciate it if voting cold you could let me know if there's a much better deal out there under £400 as I may well snap it up.

Cheers/

The mouse buttons are flimsy - be careful

We've had 2 asus laptops, and both have been just as rubbish as each other. Both had serious heat issues (getting above 80 degrees at times) even considering the latest one has an ionizer to keep the temperature down. Both got increasingly slow after a short period of time of ownership even when there wasn't a lot of stuff installed on it. Also our second Asus laptop has now got a loose connection in the screen and it flickers which is not good and the only way to make it stop flickering is to wack the screen. Seriously stay away from Asus as there are so many other brands of laptop within this price range which are just as good, far more reliable and built 100x better.

I spotted this one too actually- definitely the best deal for a Toshiba I could see. Wasn't sure if the extra £40 would actually translate to any noticeable improvement in performance.

Interesting comments re: ASUS. Seem to be completely contradictory to most other reviews and laptop reliability charts. http://smidgenpc.com/2010/05/07/laptop-reliability-ratings-which-laptop-is-really-most-reliable/

for the price its good. however avoid acer if you can help it. they are the biggest but cheap for a reason. my one lasted 14 months before the power adapter started to go wrong with it not working consistently. the screen started to fail after 18 months... basically it disintergrated in less than 18 months.

I have one - I find the keyboard rattly and rather terrible, still haven't got used to it after 6 months. I wouldn't buy this myself again...

Assume he was responding to the point above.

Still looking for a better spec for under £400 if anyone knows one.
