I picked this up from Tesco Direct yesterday and 2 runs of the keys don't respond so it will be going back. The build feels very cheap and the touchpad buttons feel incredibly tacky.

Great spec for the price if you can live with the design.
#2
no 2 yr warranty likewarm.
#3
I like the design but the price is not great, for 30 quid more i got additional ram and larger hard drive (next model up), through Dixons.

By the way always double check the Spec with Tesco as they very rarley have it right, by their sales teams own admission.
#4
Spec is correct. Which is the next model up for £30 more and extra ram and hard drive , i have been looking for 2 weeks now and not seen anything better than this(definately not dixons , currys,pcworld, ebuyer,play etc),i was waiting to see if Jon Lewis get theirs back in stock.

I picked one of these up yesterday, the design could be a little better, i'd give it a 7 out of 10 for design. But if money is no object spend an extra £100 on the same specc'd laptop with a better design. What sold it for me over the Lewis's price was the quidco (£10) and the clubcard points (about 2300 at the time with the code). You can extend the warranty through Toshiba for about £23 and I would imagine a Toshiba manufacturer warranty would be better than a John Lewis one. So far I'm happy, seems a lot of laptop for the money really. Was playing some 1080p MKV's through the HDMI out port last night and had no issues. Seems very nippy, but I had to remove all the crapware that Toshiba had installed. I couldn't find more bang per buck at this moment in time.
#6
also you could self upgrade the ram for about £40 if you really need it, but I find 2GB is plenty for Windows 7
#7
how does this deal fair upto the dell 1564 at carphone warehouse for the same money,i know there is 5% quidco but its not a certain.
#8
I actually ended up taking this back, I could live with the design, but the screen just started getting on my nerves, it looks really washed out unless your at a perfect 90 degree angle to it (never seen a screen with such a bad viewing angle). The screen is also glossy which I now realise i really hate.
#9
yeah i hate shiney screens. its immposible to tell looking on some websites though
#10
It's been this price for a a few months now. it was even 404 on amazon recently went up though to 499.
Good price for a Core i3 processor

If you dont mind a refurb, Dell Outlet have some much better offers. I ordered an Inspiron, 17" screen, i5 430m, 4GB Ram, 500GB HDD, 9 cell battery, 1 year warranty - came to £395 including delivery + VAT after the £20 discount vouhcer...
#12
yer to be honest if this is only a 1 year warrenty (which i think it is), you would do best going for a refurb. get much more for you buck.

Is it advisable to buy a refurb long-term? Some of their prices are really tempting.
#14
temporarily out of stock now
suspended#15
out of stock, also the dell on carphone warehouse doesn't have an optical drive, i phoned and asked.
#16
i rate toshibas never has a problem with them.
#17
Not sure why has this has suddenly been made hot while still at the same price it's been at for at least the last few months and possibly longer? (£399 at Tesco)

Not terriby encouraging when two people took theirs back.

Toshiba seem to make hundreds of models (check their site). I wonder how far up their line you need to go before the issues, as posted above, are addressed?

There are loads of Core i3 laptops around this price (see here) including refurbs which a few mates have bought and had 0 issues with and if you do then it still has the same 12 months warranty as the new stuff from alll the other retailers (except John Lewis).

Just to add a core i3 based laptop might be more than someone needs for basic computing (look at Core 2 Duo or Pentium Dual Core) or not enough in which case look at core i5 or core i7 ones.

OK thanks for that. I think I will go for one of the Dell refurbs - this Toshiba is a good deal but I want dedicated Graphics memory.
