Anyone know if the screen on this is shiny? I hate shiny screens and theres no way to tell on the interweb.
#2
If it's the same as their older models then yes, the screen will be shiny.

I have a Toshiba with the silly worded TruBrite Crystal Clear Display and it's shiney. It's all right though because it's really bright!
#3
Thats a dam good deal.
#5
Good price based on the RRP but not sure the i5 processor will be put to full use with the rest of the spec.
#6
Welll that is a Hotdeal!!
#7
haha, like how the OP says "only 2GB of RAM". people are so fickle.
#8
2GB is adequate for the average user, tbh. BTW, This CPU has hyperthreading so has two virtual cores as well as the 2 real ones. Benchmarks:

Good spec for the price and a top notch brand - nice. I'd buy one if i wasn't already knee deep in computers. Heat added.

Have to agree - the spec seems a bit misbalanced to me - a Core i3 would have been sufficient, given 2Gb RAM and on die graphics.

There's a Dell 1564 available with a Core i3 from CPW for £400 here http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/broadband/laptops-and-netbooks/buy/DELL-1564

Agreed this Toshiba deal is great value, just 'not right' IMHO
#11
2Gb Is perferct whats wrong with 2GB ??

Brilliant price compared to what is out there at least saving £60-70 id say.

decent power for main apps use if it high def video then it may not be best or for gaming but other than that cant go wrong
#12
Cannot see the DELL as stated above better than this LApTOP! i3 slower lower processor!
#13
http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/product/Satellite-L650-12P/1086418/toshibaShop/true/

has LED backlight display. Good CPU but GPU graphics card is not for HIGH def video or gaming , its quite large and heavy compared !!
Windows 7 home premium built in. WIRELESS N also built in !!

I think this price will Go up must be a mistake

i'd say this is much better value for money personally http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/toshiba-laptop-core-i3-esata-hdmi-4/763125. better specced laptop (apart from the processor) for the same price. i would say this is more suited to the average user than this one.
#15
That's a damn good deal.
#16
Anyone recommend a reasonable laptop for daughter to play The Sims 3 on, seems to need to good dedicated graphics card? Thanks

IMHO the i5 CPU is wasted in such a configuration....have a look for example at Dell's offerings with the same CPU http://www.dmxdimension.com/dell-uk/inspiron-15-deals-codes-coupons/

All have 4Gb RAM, much larger hard drives and all but one have a dedicated 1 Gb graphics card - just like it should be. Much dearer, yes, but then they will be a hell of lot faster too, coping with just about anything.

Just my opinion of course.

As I said, this is a good deal for the money........
#18
Complete tosh. This is is good for high def video, but I agree that this is not a gaming laptop where top end performance is a must.

For more balanced spec, there is another deal at same price. Loses i5 but gains 1gig of RAM and 250GB of HDD; depends on usage I suppose, but I'd prefer i5 to begin with - as CPU is far more difficult to upgrade.

Doesn't make full use of a 64bit operating system, which this has. There is a reason why most 64bit Windows 7 laptops and PCs sport 4Gb of RAM.........
#21
would this laptop be a easy upgrade to 4gb?
suspended#22
as said above its going to be alot easier to replace ram than cpu
as i ask in many threads now - whats the keyboard like on this?
#23
v good deal for i5.
#24
Does it have webcam?

edit:
oh wait it does.

just because an OS can address 64bit doesn't mean you need 4gigs of ram. Windows min ram requirement is 1gig so 2gig is plenty if you aren't a heavy multitasker (and I mean intensive tasks like spreadsheets). If you have 4gigs then its pointless to have 32bit because you can only see 3.5 of it, that's the reason why most 4gig laptop has 64bit.

This is totally capable at playing HD and youtube and browsing the web all at the same time. i5 has 2 physical cores, with Hyperthreading you will see 4 cores in windows.

Yes http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/listparts.aspx?model=Satellite%20L650-12P&pl=Toshiba&cat=RAM However, like most/all?? laptops, there are only two slots - most likely occupied by 2 X 1Gb sticks, so they will have to be removed to fit anything larger.

I signed up just to comment on this.

-This is perfect for HD video, and desktop use. No it won't be good for gaming.

2gb is ample for 64bit, and this is easily upgradable to 8gb total (2x 4gb sticks) if you wish to in the future.

Heat added, and told my brother in law to buy himself one as he was after ~£500 laptop

Rubbish :D

Win 32 bit OS doesn't make use of 4GB, a 64 bit OS will make use of 2GB just as well as it'll handle 4GB.
What you mean to say is that 4GB will make a noticable improvement to performance and 4GB is so cheap now that it'll go into entry and mid-level laptops. Most people would notice a jump from 1-2GB or 2-4. Unlikely they'll notice 4-8 or upward.

Win7 Home Premium can make use of 16GB, Ultimate 192GB.

Which bit doesn't it use?

RAM isn't the bottleneck here. HDD is.

It appears from the specs that it will take a max of 8GB:

Here's an i3 with 4GB ram and dedicated graphics:
http://www.johnlewis.com/231038192/Product.aspx?source=42831


but it's around £125 more (_;)

yeah but can you link to something, similar price, with faster HDD?

Highly unlikely hence why despite my query regarding the i5 processor in relation to the rest of the spec, I voted hot. I just got a Dell (yes I know..) Studio 15 with i3, 500GB 7200rpm HDD, 4GB RAM and 1GB dedicated graphics card for £530. Scored very high on the Windows experience test when I ran it last night.

Anyone got any recommendations on a lappy for around £700?

[quote=bridgetbodgit]Anyone got any recommendations on a lappy for around £700?[/quotp

bought a dell i7 (studio 17) for £700. I know dell isn't great but it was pretty good value, including extended 3yr warranty.
#37
Thanks - will have a look...

Look at N0055818 on the Dell Site (Studio 15 i7 etc.) £699 - and use 5% or 10% voucher + Quidco etc.

Interesting comments. I have to agree with the majority by saying that this is a good deal. I would FAR rather have a better processor than extra hard disk space or more memory. In the short term it won't make much difference (2GB is fine, and who uses 500GB on an internal drive anyway), but in the long term you will be pleased you chose the higher spec processor as this is the one bit you cannot replace easily (or at all most of the time).

In a year or so you can bump up the memory to 4GB or more and buy a much faster, higher capacity HDD (e.g. something like the Hybrid Seagate Momentus XT 500GB or it's successor. Hybrid drives are the future for laptops).

You are able to remove and replace the HDD in these laptops then, are you? Have you got this model of Toshiba then?
