After TopCashback of 4.5% this works out at £337.50 (Quidco is on at a slightly lesser 4% for those not with TopCashback yet).

Just purchased this myself over the weekend, had the despatch confirmation today. Should get it tomorrow. I will report back with my findings.

I missed out on the recent Samsung Argos deal, & was considering the Ebuyer 6735s for £390. This one just tipped the scales for me over the 6735s because it was cheaper (duh!), it has a HDMI out & it has the Intel T3200 rather than the AMD's the HP's all seem to use now.

The Lenovo 3000 N series laptop get so many good to great reviews online, admittedly not any specific to the N500, but the predecessors have been constant improvements on the previous models.

The ebuyer website has a lot of pictures of this laptop (Misco only has the 1 pic).

Lenovo 3000 N500 4233 / Pentium Dual Core T3200 2GHz / 2GB RAM / 250GB HDD / DVD-Writer / GMA 4500MHD /Bluetooth / 802.11 a/b/g/n (draft) / Vista Home Premium / 15.4" TFT / Camera / Notebook PC

As of October 31, 2008, 50.4% of Lenovo is owned by public shareholders, 42.3% by Legend Holdings Limited, 6.6% by Texas Pacific Group (TPG Capital), General Atlantic LLC and Newbridge Capital LLC and 0.7% by the directors. Because the Chinese Academy of Sciences, a Chinese government agency, owns 65% of Legend Holdings, effectively the Chinese government owns about 27% of Lenovo and is the largest shareholder.

IBM became the owner of 18.9% of Lenovo in 2005 as part of Lenovo's acquisition of the IBM personal computing division. Since then IBM has steadily lowered its shareholding in Lenovo. In July 2008 the IBM shareholding went below the 5% reporting disclosure threshold.

Yep, definitely has an integrated webcam above the screen, other websites have more screenshots which show it.

The detailed specs on Misco also reference it.

Most places do seem to have it around the £350 mark (some are up at around the £400 mark though...grrr :shakes fist: )

I posted the Misco deal as it worked out cheapest (admittedly only by a fiver or so) out of the lot after cashback.

Also Ebuyers infamous SuperSaver delivery would still have me waiting until end of this week/start of next week to get my laptop whereas Misco's will be delivered by courier tomorrow after being ordered on Saturday Evening.

The 3000 N200 laptops were/are very nice (this post was made on an N200), I'd imagine this is too, hot

the back looks alot nicer than the front of this lappY !

I'll totally accept I'm pretty ignorant on techie stuff but thought I'd ask in this thread, if I got this -

http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.204-9201.aspx

for £360, which would be the better option?

I'm looking for a space saving desktop replacement so the bigger screen is actually appealing rather than a non-portable down side.

Thanks!

That link goes to a £399 laptop not £360.

I do like the silver back & the rounded edges will make it pretty comfy for carrying I should imagine, but I like the contrast between the light cover & dark keyboard/screen surround. I guess it's down to personal preference.

Like I said I will be getting mine tomorrow, so once I get back from work I'll have a play & post my 1st thoughts on it.

Not much comparison if you're after a 17" screen, but the one you linked to has a slower CPU (1.73 compared to the 2.0 on the Lenovo) for a start. The HDD is also smaller on your link (200GB compared to 250GB on the Lenovo). RAM is the same on each. The Toshiba also lacks the bluetooth & Wireless N (draft) that the Lenovo supports, but that would entirely depend on whether you need those connectivity options.

All in all doesn't seem bad for a 17", but having not looked into 17" screens myself as I wanted a more portable one I can't really comment on whether it's a great deal or not. :thumbsup:
#17
The Lenova has the better spec compared to the Toshiba as the processor is faster, there is more processor cache, a larger hard drive and a better on-board graphics processor.

I've had a quick look around the major online retailers for you & the closest I can find in terms of spec to the Lenovo with a 17" screen is the one below which you can get for £419.97 (£411.57 after 2% Quidco).

http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/asp/versions.asp?rewrite=Asus_X71Q-7S002C_Laptop_X71Q-7S002C&pagetype=version&page=

This was just a brief look & there may well be cheaper/better options elsewhere. For £11.58 difference though I would choose the Asus over the Toshiba. ;-)

Hope that helps?

Why so hot when someone early on pointed out that ebuyer is cheaper?

Ebuyer is cheaper on face value, but you don't get any cashback on there.

AFTER cashback this deal is about £5 cheaper, plus Misco's cheapest delivery option (which is included in this threads price) is 1-3 days (I'll be getting mine tomorrow 2 working days after order was placed).

I'd rather pay £5 less after cashback & get the laptop 3 or 4 days quicker. :whistling:

I knew it was this price on ebuyer, it's also a fairly similair price on another site (I think Laptops Direct??) but I ultimately settled on the Misco deal as it was cheaper after cashback & had the quickest delivery option of all 3 sites.
#21
beergoggles - sorry, should've highlighted that I can get a 10% discount to take it to £360.

blue2mor - thanks. Not sure if I'm stuck on a 17" screen or not. Just seemed not a bad idea when portability's not such a deal for us but how much more would you want to pay for it? Only I can decide I guess.

Apologies for hijacking the thread, appreciate the advice from those that know more than me though. Ta.

How do you know this has HDMI? I can't see any reference to it on either the misco or ebuyer websites?

Also can't find a review of this laptop anywhere - I'd like to make sure it's not a lemon!

Am I right in thinking the Pentium Dual Core T3200 isn't nearly as good (fast/cool/quiet) as any core2duo processor?

Not as fast due to less cache (and slower FSB), cooler as it has less cache, quiet is down to the fan and general build quality, however as this is lower spec cpu it should be cooler/quieter..
#25
Does pretty well performance wise on this list

http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php

The core2duo's are really only slightly better. Don't know about temperatures etc. Would generally like to know more about the laptop!
#26
Where are all the dell deals this year? I have a £500 budget to get one for my brother in law and would like something with a blu ray drive. Got the fujitsu siemens from Comet for my dad a few weeks ago which was a bargain but they have all gone now. Any suggestions?

The latest dual core processors are simply half-cache C2Ds.

The T3200 is a C2D T5750 with half its cache disabled. The cache forms a large part of the chip area and if there is a die fault in one half of the cache of a T5750 it can be disabled and sold as a T3200 rather than being binned.

Ive been looking for a good deal since xmas for my sons birthday next week and finally settled on this from Ebuyer. Ordered friday and came today on the free delivery.
Not checked it out yet but looks good.
* When you get the laptop, if the mouse pad doesn't work, you have to press the light at the top right of the laptop (to enable the pad on).

There was a picture on the ebuyer listing that clearly showed the HDMI port on 1 of the sides of the laptop, I can confirm for definite when I get the laptop tomorrow.

I also couldn't find a review for this specific laptop, but it seems it's a fairly new model (upgraded version of the Lenovo 3000 N200 which there are plenty of reviews for).

This note about the mousepad is worth noting for anyone else who gets this, I've seen this on a couple forums. It's apparently a feature on the laptop that you can "lock" the touchpad to save accidentally moving mouse with palms when typing etc. :thumbsup:

Misco still have it though as in the OP, it's cheaper (after cashback) & delivery is quicker. :whistling:

Dual Core + Vista = Not recommended.

Are you referring to the myth that Vista does not work with Dual Core processors?

This is categorically untrue. Vista works with & will recognise all Dual Core/Core2Duo processors. It is dual processors that Vista Home Basic & Premium will not recognise (the simplified difference for those that aren't aware is dual core processors have 2 processors on 1 chip, whereas dual processors are 2 seperate chips).

If that's not what you're referring to I apologise, maybe you'd like to clarify the reasons Vista shouldn't be used with Dual Core? :)

Laptop received today, given it a couple hours charge & just switched it on for a quick look.

1st impressions of the laptop are good, runs VERY quiet compared to my old Acer. The keyboard is logically set out & easy enough to use. The HDD show 204GB free for use (with 2 seperate drives Q for the original install files which can be burnt to DVD to free up this space & S for the Lenovo recovery drive which is only 1.46GB).

Will get into performance aspects tonight & post some pics as well maybe.

For now here's the Windows Experience Index score from Vista:
4.9 - Processor
4.5 - RAM
3.5 - Graphics
3.5 - Gaming Graphics
5.2 - Hard Disk

Erm, the Core2Duo is a Dual Core chip :roll:


Dual Core & Core2Duo are slightly different, the main thing being the Core2Duo has a much larger ram cache (usually 2mb rather than the 1mb of the Dual Core). In real terms this means the Core2Duo can perform up to 20% faster. Emphasis on the up to their in the same way that broadband providers are up to 24mb etc. :roll:

This wouldn't really affect the chips ability to run Vista as the previous poster was suggesting.

The Intel Pentium Dual Core Mobile processor T3200 has,
1.TWO processor cores operating at 2.0GHz EACH.
2.It has 1MB of L2 cache
3.The Front Side Bus is 667MHz
4.Uses 35 watts
5.Uses the Socket P, processor socket
6.The architecture is based on the 'Merom-2M' core, and the 65 Nanometer technology.
7.Uses the MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST), Intel 64 (Intel's x86-64 implementation), XD bit (an NX bit implementation), iAMT2 (Intel Active Management), LaGrande Technology (Intel Trusted Execution Technology)

The Intel Core2 Duo Mobile processor T5800 has,
1.TWO processor cores operating at 2.0GHz EACH.
2.It has 2MB's of L2 cache
3.The Front Side Bus is 800MHz
4.Uses 35 watts.
5.Uses the Socket P, processor socket.
6.The architecture is based on the 'Merom-2M' core, and the 65 nm.
7.Uses the MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST), Intel 64 (Intel's x86-64 implementation), XD bit (an NX bit implementation), iAMT2 (Intel Active Management), LaGrande Technology (Intel Trusted Execution Technology)

In other words the Core2 Duo, (which is a newer technology than the Pentium Dual Core), has a faster FSB, and twice as much L2 cache.

Makes it a faster chip, and more efficient! Clearer now?

Aye I knew that, just didn't want to go into so much info on it!! You can sometimes find that a T5800 chip that has issues will often be partially disabled turning it into a T3200 chip. Saves losing the entire processor & replacing it.

We're kinda getting sidetracked though in terms of the processor!
#39
Previously dual core chips used to refer to the netburst architecture (a good few years ago). Now days Intel Pentium Dual Core chips are very much based on the same architecure of Core 2 Duo chips.

Just for those that didnt know.
