Not a bad price for a Toshiba but it needs more RAM and with the basic processor will not be a great performer.
#2
was going to mention the RAM. Agreed 512 is not enough. 1 gig mimimum.

Need a cheap laptop... Only needs to do word docs and use the internet really and possibly music. Is this okay or can I get a cheaper one for what I want?

I'd say this was an absolute steal and spot-on for your needs. You could get cheaper but this is a quality brand and will last a while. Vista means you'll be supported and continue to get security updates for a long while yet, buying an XP machine could put you in an awkward position in 18 months time as Microsoft are sure to stop releasing their patches at some point.

This will be ok for what you suggest but you should try to budget for a little more RAM - it really will make a difference.

See >>here<< for example.

Easy enough to add ram after purchase? The link doesn't work now :-(

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/125319

This is the right one isn't it? Do ebuyer sell the ram to go with it?

Answered my own question http://www.ebuyer.com/product/125935/product_info/rb/27500982322 £40 rip off

Toshiba make great laptops - we have both an M1 and M2 in our household. This seems to be a good deal!

It uses ATi graphics however, so Ubuntu and other linux users should steer clear to avoid headaches. Ebuyer also sell the HP 510 at £299 which is equally as capable.

Great deal for Windows users! Heat and rep added.

ade - you're looking in the wrong section - look under memory-laptop!

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/82102

Kingston 512Mb is £16.67 inc vat, two sticks (1Gb) delivered for £25.91 after google-checkout (better to buy 1 stick and something else for £14 if you want it for this laptop mind)

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/98696

Corsair 1Gb is £29.51 inc vat, add something for 50p (eg 72292) for £22.59 delivered!!! Would bring laptop upto 1.5Gb ram

Looks good deal for those willing to put up with a celeron laptop, voted hot.

EDIT: The total price with the laptop, the bag and a 512Mb stick of Kingston (82102) is £306.66 after google-checkout and super-saver.

I think XP will still be supported for many years yet, they only stopped supporting 98 last year. Regards laptop, great deal, I deal with alot of computer companies and I haven't seen a Toshiba this cheap for a while..
#12
Just ordered,
But my total came to £289.99 not the above £288.22.
i'm not whinging, it's only £1.77 difference,
but did i do something wrong?
#13
Sorry MrPinchPenny i've calculated it wrong! Messed up with the VAT any way cheers for all the heat guys - this is easily the hottest thing i've posted yet (even more than the official ipod shuffle armband for 9p at asda) :thumbsup:

i want to by a laptop for my mum who is learning how to use a computer. She will only be usuing it for the internet, word and play games on - only basic games like solitaire. Is this any good?
#15
Can anyone tell me if I could play Tiberium Wars on this? I know its a higher level game and it is unlikely. Will it also support multimonitors.

Yes it would be perfect for her.
I only use it for surfing the net also, thats why i bought this one.
Can't go wrong for £290.
Pint of beer for original poster. :thumbsup:

I would doubt it very much. Graphics card would struggle and the 512MB Ram would be under extreme pressure. Not really a gaming machine this one but a good bulk standard top name Laptop.

Cheers.

Thanks....Great find - just ordered. Exactly what i was looking for.
Thanks again.....

Anyone know how long the battery will last?

Hi, just a quick response to the poster way above who mentioned this laptop not being good for Ubuntu (and other linux distros). I purchased the L30 a few weeks ago (back when it was £350 :roll: ) and installed Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) straight away. The ATI driver works fine after enabling it in the restricted drivers panel. I never bothered to boot the laptop up in Vista so can't offer a comparison but the display is clear and the OpenGL screensavers work fine so it's good enough for me :)

With regards to the battery life, don't expect much from this laptop. I can't give a definite time since I nearly always use it plugged into the mains, however, I have read it's only got about an hour and a half which seems about right judging from how much the battery dropped when I did run it mains-free for 20 mins or so.

I hope that helps.
