It depends what size screen you need. Difficult to compare different sizes.

I don't think 16" vs 15.6" is really that much difference.

For me the John lewis deal is much better value, faster processor (slightly slower graphics), Windows 7 64bit, 2 year warranty. But as has been said it isn't the prettiest machine...
#7
I'd prefer this one to the J Lewis offer due to being dual core, having 4GB of RAM, firewire and dedicated graphics memory. That's just my personal preference though and would suit my needs, and there might be a possible Windows 7 upgrade offer with this too :)

you would prefer this because its dual core:???? amazing:-D,please do some more research before you buy:)

this is a decent deal for the extra memory and dedicated graphics but personally i would go for the newer i3 cpu and 2 year warrenty but this is still a decent buy compared too lots of others,battery is a bit poor at upto 2 hours though.

I agree - go for Core i3 or Core i5 if you can as they use newer and much faster technoogy.

If you don't need the dedicated graphics there are plenty of Core i3 laptops under £400 here - you can then buy additional memory if you need it later.
#10
Gaaaaah, I'm looking for a laptop under £400 with a deidcated graphics card but also with Windows 7. Can't seem to find anything at the moment...

There is a big difference between those two. The 15.6 wide screen has less height than an ordinary 15.4 screen. This makes a huge difference when you look at web pages and A4 documents. The 16" screen has the shape/ratio of a 15.4 screen and is therefore better suited for such applications (web, office, etc.) Have a look in PCWorld or Currys at the difference.

After all, for me the most important elements of a computer are the screen, keyboard and mouse/pad. Speed is of less importance to me personally.

my uncle bought one of these about a year ago for 499- beautiful laptop, has a 'glossy' appearance on both the lid, keyboard and palm rest. The speakers are great on it too, compared to the laptop I currently have.
#13
I have this got it from JLewis last year it's great for the price looks decent fast enough for poodling about. I paid about 449 with my discount speakers are great overall well happy with it.
#14
Worth noting this is a 'core 2 duo' CPU, not a 'core duo', which is a lot older and replaced in mid-2006 with the 'core 2 duo'.

Concerning this deal, I've given it heat, but there have been better laptops for this price that've come by recently.
#15
In terms of just graphics horsepower this machine, even with its lower spec processor, would probably trounce the JL Toshy. But then again, how many people want a laptop for serious gaming?

Like I said, it would suit my needs, so I would choose this laptop over the other one :)

Eh?!
They're both the same resolution (1366 x 768), and consequently both the same aspect ratio (16:9).
#18
As for the laptops mentioned in the 2 deals....

I'd go for the JL one as the difference between the HD3470 & i3 GMA HD GPUs is marginal, and certainly not enough to make up for the i3 330 being significantly faster than the T6400.

JL also has Win7 and a better battery.
#19
It loses a few points cos its sold with Vista.
don't get me wrong I like Vista, unlike most people, but Windows 7 is worth the added premium.

So that John lewis deal seems a far better offer just for that, not to mention the better processer.
#20
I'm looking for a new laptop at the mo but haven't a clue about computer jargon;-)
I only want it to surf the net, youtube, photos etc. and music

Can anyone tell me what the best deal is (seems to be a lot of knowledgable folks on here regrads computers, laptops) for my needs at the moment (good price but not rubbish machine;-))
#21
The JL Toshiba isn't ugly at all, it's a really nice looking machine. Why is it ugly? Because it's not glossy all over? Glossy looks amazing out of the box - but a few months down the line they look like **** since they pick up every single mark, scratch, fingerprint, whatever.

Matte over gloss any day.
#22
I don't know why people stand for such a low resolution on such a large screen. My 2004 15" laptop is 1400x1050 - that's 40% more pixels.
#24
I'm looking for a laptop which will allow me to run Sony Vegas Pro to edit HD video from my Panasonic Camcorder, my current Toshiba (core 2 duo onboard graphics) is so laggy when running this software making it unusable.

Does anybody think either of these Toshiba's will be able to run something like Vegas Pro without struggling?

Unless someone else here has first-hand knowledge of Sony Vegas Pro, I imagine you're the most likely to have a reasonable guess.
Though if you tell us the spec. of this core 2 duo that runs it poorly, we can give you a rough idea of how much faster these Tosh deals are.
CPU model?
GPU chipset?
Operating System?
Amount of memory?
Or if you have the laptop's Toshiba model number?

I imagine when you bought it, that was a high spec. machine?
These are budget machines, so it's no surprise their screen res. isn't spectacular.

Having said that, I find widescreen resolutions are generally more useful than 4:3.

Depends what you call high spec. - it came from Aldi! It certainly cost much more than this one, but of course that says very little as it's six years ago.

I prefer 4:3 because I don't spend all my time watching videos! 1400 is more pixels than 1366 whatever the aspect ratio. :)

[SIZE="5"]the John Lewis wins my vote because you're actually treated like a customer should something go wrong.

ARGOS couldn't give a c**p about you.[/SIZE]

TWO HOURS BATTERY LIFE?! whats the point!?! (rhetorical btw, i know some ppl could find this machine useful lol)

I like my asus Ul30a. Only £350, fast enough for any web surfing youtube playing etc and it being 13" is very portable with a fantastic battery life.
You miss out on a DVD/CD drive though but thats the one I'd recommend for your purposes.

If portability is not that important, the John lewis toshiba offer looks very good. its a lot faster and has a bigger screen than the Asus. But a much much shorter battery life (not important if you always have it plugged in), and a lot chunkier.
#31
Or you could spend £130 on the netbook...

I was checking this benchmark. Any idea what kind of frame rate you'd get on L4D with low/med settings?

Amazing what google will turn up
#34
Haha nice :P

Thing is, fraps requires use of the CPU and HDD, so may reduce the framerate (that vid was playable but a bit jerky) so a proper benchmark would be more useful. Good to see it runs though, if only just.
