Good find. Impressive spec. for the money - more of a desktop replacement than a convenient portable with a huge 17.3" screen, but the big screen really does make a difference, compared to a 15".

Comparable laptops are often a good £100 more and Toshiba is a good make (I'm typing on one now).

Heat added.

Ive been looking for a new laptop for the last week, ive destroyed my old one by stepping on it a few to many times.
This one seems perrfect so have placed my order, cheers

What would really help me when posting Laptop Specs would be the Performance Index (Under the Games Section)

So many variables to take into account (I confuse easily)

Great Post.

It sounds like you need a ruggedised laptop... or a table?

Not sure about the resolution for a screen of that size... One thousand and eigthy pee's would be better.

16:9 is still a nice res.

Processor lets it down for me.

I agree, i need to stop leaving it on the floor by the sofa when im finished, my first step caused the screen hinge to crack, 2nd step bropker the other hinge so its now held with duck tape and the third step cracked the screen. It was 7 years old and i was secrelty looking for a way to justify a new laptop.:-D

Genuinely interested, what would you be using the laptop for to tax the processor so much?

I stood on the Mrs.'s laptop :|

Looking for something around £400. Doesn't need to be very portable, mainly for her to write on. This the best thing for the money? Cheers

I think it's probably more the fact that the Pentium T series is now obsolete.

The reason laptops like this are coming down in price is that the new Core i3, i5, i7 and new Pentium P series processors are out.

what would you be using it for that would need a bigger processor than this?


Ofc 1080p would bet better, but you have to look at the price and 16000*900 is still pretty good. The fact that it doesnt have a blue ray drive would make 1080p a bit pointless, unless it was your wont to dl BR from the net.

I would look at this if you don't need it for gaming or long battery life.

Maybe not the best in the world but certainly no slouch either, considering the specs and price this processor will do fine for this lappy!

A laptop is good if it does what the person wants for a decent price compared to others. Toshiba is above average in terms of build quality and reliability. Go and look at one and see whether you like it before buying, but id suggest ist pretty good if you want a desktop replacement, dont play games and dont expect to be wanting to work with it on the move a lot. The screen should be excellent for viewing movies, surfing the net, MS office, internet etc. The processor is plenty powerful enough for those wnating to use it for those tasks.

Great find, great price - decent laptop. That's the wife's b'day present sorted! H&R!

I work in IT and for me it ticks all the boxes.

For a 17" screen it's probably as high as you'd want to go - I have both a 1440x900 and a 1920x1200 notebook and the higher res screen is a PITA for text - great for other stuff but decent sized, accurately rendered text is more important for me - and I have 20/10 vision FWIW :thumbsup:

Has an esata port, which is great!

Does it have an HDMI or DVI port? It just says 'external monitor port'? Although you could easily enjoy films etc on the 17" screen, I'd really like to have the option of connecting up to my 22" monitor.

Edit: I have a feeling it might be a mini DisplayPort, in which case you can get an adapter.

I think your 71 degrees of heat is a leason in that a good description makes for a better post :)

[FONT=Verdana][COLOR=Navy]+1[/COLOR] - Just to far out of my budget but agree it's a decent deal.

While I'm working on my descriptive writing perhaps you could work on your spelling:oops:
