Processor is still very decent for most users.

7200 rpm HDD is very hand at this price
suspended#5
So is this laptop worth paying £299.99

Is there anything better around the same price?

Thanks

Argos are refurbs!

This ebuyer laptop is NEW! That makes the difference (for me).
Also, this has got WINDOWS 7 on, while most Argos refurbs come with Vista.

The Compaq C60/C61 is one of the better laptops around (Keybord, screen and mouse)

I second that one. I have 2 and just got rid of 1 CQ61 and I must admit that these laptops have one of the best keyboards I have ever used

Not always.

And this isn't such a great price, probably all it's really worth. I got a better specced CQ70 last year for £330 from Currys. Even with better CPU and more RAM performance was awful (although admittedly it was vista).

Seems to be disappointingly underpowered laptop. Everything single part is trying to cut costs. Switching to T6400 would greatly increase performance (they are cheap on Ebay), but not everyone can do that.

Or there's this with a 320gb HD
Just bought one for a friend and seems ok for the money!

You can put Intel CPU into AMD chipset? Am I missing something?

Bought an almost identical laptop last year (Mar 09) for £315 from HP store. They had the deal for a while on HUKD, but it only got 14º.

CQ60-212EM: AMD Sempron SI-42 2GHz, nVidia 8200M G, 160GB HDD, 2GB RAM, 15.6" 1366x768, etc..

Not much advancement in more than a year imo. Going from £314 to £299, si-42 to celeron t3000, 8200M g to intel 4500m.

Nvidia 8200 isn't going to take the world by storm and the T3000 is leaps and bounds ahead of the Si-42 processor from AMD... also your will have windows vista and this will have windows 7 (which wont have made a difference to the price then) but it's a much better operating system

You're right, but I still think for the same laptop at a similar price to mine I bought in 2009, this should have better spec. I personally prefer Vista to 7, so 7 isn't really a benefit to me!

Just curious but why do you prefer Vista to Windows 7? The only possible conceivable answer that I could come up with is the superbar in Windows 7. I know plenty of people who don't like how it functions, but you get used to it and the icon grouping function can be disabled in the options if you need it. Vista was a cockup, it introduced the new technologies that Microsoft wanted, but the implementation is poor. Vista is definitely slower than Windows 7, maybe not in boot time, but the whole Windows 7 OS speed feels like a breath of fresh air in comparison to Vista.

Perhaps I'm not the most reliable critic, as I was trying Windows 7 on a Mac with Boot Camp. My main problem was it didn't play any of my Grand Theft Auto games, which is pretty much the only reason I dual boot into Windows. It also seemed a lot sluggish opening up applications. Before, Firefox would take 3-4 seconds to open (on XP and Vi), but on 7 it took about double the time. I'm doing all of this on relatively good hardware btw. It also booted into resolution 800x600 by default, which is probably a driver problem, but whosever fault all of these problems were, I couldn't see any reason to keep using 7. I'm now dual-booting into XP and my CQ60 laptop uses Vista.

so tempted...I have an unopened copy of windows 7 which I could sell and put towards the price of this...
#21
Great price and with free delivery which I don't qualify for due to my postcode....

Thanks

This is a better deal, if you have a copy of Windows or Linux to use. 4GB Ram and 320GB HDD.
