First ever post - just ordered this Packard Bell laptop from currys. Has an AMD turion M500 processor, 4GB RAM, 17inch screen, 1TB hard drive and other standard features i'd expect of a midrange laptop.
I was wary of the processor as now the Intel i3 is available for similar price range of laptops, however the screen size, and hard drive were the key selling points. a 1TB external hard drive would cost over £50 alone so its already got some value.
Processor is 2.2ghz and ranks 300th out of 900 processors tested on a processor performance website I found. This is similar to most core 2 duo processors.
Also comes with Windows7
Price is £450 on currys website.
Use voucher code Spring5 to bring down to £427.50 as this gives 5% off (i think expires today)
Use quidco to get another 3% and an egg money card for addtional 1% to bring down to £410.
All in all, cannot go wrong for the price.
