ahh sorry - thanks !

This is a good laptop, definitely worth this price, although it has been a little bit cheaper in the past (slightly different specs).

The cheaper ones had the older Core Duo, slower CPU speed and smaller hard drive. This this is improved vastly in every way and imho is worth the extra cost. Voted HOT:)

Just a side question, does anone know what 'Cache' means? For instance, the 1.83ghz has 2mb cache and the 2.0ghz has 4mb cache.

I got the exact same laptop except its the older core duo. Same speed though. Paid a similar price about 2 months ago. Shortly afterwards my friend got the same deal for about £80 less. All I'm saying is that I don't think this is the cheapest this laptop has been or will be.

Another thing... most people won't need 80 GB on their laptop if they have a desktop too (and this is, after all, designed to be portable rather than a desktop replacement machine) so go for an offer with 60 GB and you'll save around £40 (from past experience). Also get a machine with 512mb RAM and then upgrade it yourself (cheaper).

I'm not saying that this is a bad deal (it's a great deal for a great laptop) but just pointing out that in a slightly different deal (i.e. maybe wait a couple of weeks and see how the deal changes) the buyer could save more. :-)

Putting it simply, the "cache" is an area of very fast memory used as temporary storage whilst something is processed. Therefore the larger the cache, the better the processor will function. The cache is suited to the processor, so the 2mb will be fine for the 1.83GHz and 4mb is required for the 2GHz processor (from what you say). Don't worry too much about that, choose the processor SPEED that you require / can afford.

Hope this helps. :thinking:

:oops: was wondering if any1 can explain how to buy through quidco to gain the %savings they promote. I only registered this morning so I am new to the scheme but after following the links through to suppliers, the final price I am quoted at checkout is the same price I'd get shopping normally through their sites. Thanks!!!!!

cache in the onboard memory of the processor. 4mb will be much faster than 2Mb. Basically the more cache a chip has, the more info it can handle at low level which means thing run faster

To the person who gave me negative feedback for my comments above:

Why?!!! I took time and effort to provide feedback to other people about a laptop that I've recently purchased, to ensure that they are more informed before buying for themselves.

If you disagree with what I'm saying (and I can't see anything in my post that is incorrect / offensive / contradictory) then post a reply. My post in no way deserved negative feedback and, quite frankly, this has made me much less likely to bother giving anyone advice on this forum in future.
#13
You did'nt deserve that neg feedback mark, and don't let it put you off posting in the future m8. Probably some nutter done it for kicks.
I'm sure the mods will rectify it if they can.
Keep up the good work mark, as i for one appreciate the input from you and everyone else. It makes life easier for all when they want to purchase something. The more info people provide the better surely.
[mod]#14
Here you are Mark, a deserved green blob for the feedback that others need in order to be able to make an informed purchase :)

Out of interest there is very little difference between the older core duo and the core 2 duo chips to warrant a substantial price difference.

See th reviews here:
http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=2808&p=4

If you can get a pc/laptop with the core 2 duo for the same price as the older one then go for it, but I wouldnt' be tempted to pay a lot extra for one. It does look like in Q107 that we will be seeing a new version released and apparently that one will offer a marked improvement over the currently released chips.

That does mean that between now and then we will see further bargains on the core duo ones and then bargains (and no doubt confusion as intel will still continue to call it core 2 duo) on the core 2 duo ones.
