What a pity I guess after a few months it will be even less otherwise it seemed ok for DH

A great spec for the price. Battery life on the lower end toshibas tends to be pretty poor, but that's not the point of these devices. They're for home users who can plug in when it gets low. Expect about 3 hours of normal use. Plus you can always get a higher capacity battery later on. And you get a two year warranty from John Lewis. A bargain for the money.

Yes, I get about 3 times the battery life on my rMBP 13, BUT it cost 4 times as much. Plenty of other laptops with great battery life, but again you'll be paying multiples of this price. In this price bracket you have to be extremely lucky to pick up the last remaining dregs of an outgoing model, or grab a netbook to get decent battery life.

Haswell is supposed to increase battery life significantly. It can't be just 2

It all varies with each laptop.
You'll have to check out reviews.
But I've never seen much more than 2hrs of real life use from a normal laptop.

Ultrabooks and OSX machines are kings of battery life but you'll be paying magnitudes more £.

Bought one last week, bit gutted £399 but did get JL discount so only losing out on £20 odd quid.

As for battery life, It's not bad, roughly 4 and a half hours web surfing. also been watching the world cup on iplayer and still lasts about 4 hours or so.
#18
This better than the dell from afew weeks ago? Same CPU isnt it? though this has more ram, onkyo speakers and 1TB.
#19
Not that great value I don't think as you can often get the i3 u-series under £300 - don't forget they are the lower-power lower-performance chips and I've found generally worse than even series 2 chips on CPUboss measures, although you get a little more battery life. 2yr warranty from JL is always nice though I guess.

John Lewis will price match themselves and refund the difference. Give them a call.

I stand corrected.

Here's a review of a similar unit: Click Me

It should comfortably get 3hrs use at max brightness + casual use if their tests are accurate. 4hrs with some power management.

That's assuming the review laptop and this one share the same battery and power draw is similar.

Thanks will phone them.

Just to add, although we didn't buy this to play games on, it defaulted to medium settings on Skyrim and high on Fallout 3, don't know about frame rates but seemed to run Ok.

Sound is better than what I thought considering how narrow the speaker is.
Also the power cable block is a bit about a 1/3 of the size of what iv'e had used in the past, looks really small, and instead of the clover plug that goes in to the block, it uses a 2 prong female adapter, you know the ones that you used to get on radios... actually shavers as well!
Also the white one in the picture has a black bezel, the one we got is completely white.

what like packard bell the asus i5 that were on here not long ago. the asus had a decent spec for £380 but the build quality was terrible
#24
No Tosh and Asus have both had i3s for under £300 in recent memory! As for the poor Asus you mention, I'm surprised - they generally seem good and came out top in a warranty survey a couple of years ago, with Tosh 2nd.

Didn't read the website, just the post - "maximum life : up to 6h00min (Mobile Mark™ 2012)" although as you said the JL website says 3hr 30 meaning you'll only get 2/3rds of that.
#26
I thought I;d just update my post from earlier, I done a battery test from 100% down to windows 10% warning, and got 5h 2 min on battery.
This was running Itv web player (footy) and till a little while ago the Germany game on iplayer. Total time 3h 35mins of tv and the rest was just web browsing, all run on balanced setting not eco mode at about 50% brightness, which was fine.

Battery seems to have got better since we got it last saturday.

Hi, I'm seriously considering getting this now I've read your update. Can you confirm though whether it has a CD/DVD/Blu-ray drive? I know the John Lewis specification for it online says it doesn't, but I'm hoping that's a mistake. Thanks.

Hi, unfortunately it hasn't, I think a lot of manufacturer's are trying to get away from optical drives now, due to so many online entertainment services and apps.
If I need to use a DVD or software, I've got an old drive in a DVD enclosure which I got off eBay for a couple of quid and attach by USB, does the job.

Thanks for your reply. I think I'll order this one - can't beat a John Lewis warranty. :)

Great, been looking for a nice Core i3 laptop for my son as he heads off to University. The discount and the 2 year warranty is the clincher.

if you bought within 28 days ring JL and they will refund the difference

Shame it's not i5 but still good spec for the price. Poor battery life a deal breaker for me though. Still heat added.
#35
This seemed a good laptop deal so have ordered but even better website states it's now a 3 year warranty!! Seems very good.
#36
White sold out everywhere :(, please could anyone let me know if they find one!

Thanks
#37
White one has been removed from the website so here is the direct link to the Red Laptop

The extension of the warrenty to 3 years is a bonus :)
