good deal with the added warranty i think,
#2
brilliant
suspended#3
Good deal, would be super hot if it had 4gb instead of 2gb tho.
#4
Looking their site very briefly, I got the impression that the warranty (or at least the second year of it) is looked after by John Lewis themselves- ie if the laptop goes wrong, John Lewis will repair it and not Toshiba.

Not sure I'd be happy about that prospect myself.

good deal but would prefer a 13in screen

Well, it's at least better than the standard one year warranty you get elsewhere :)
#7
well if the service given to me when my tv went faulty, I wouldn't worry about the warranty with JL.
I went duff out of standard warranty, they sent a local firm to collect, look at it, and it got written off as uneconomical to repair. So they gave me a new telly.
Simpe as that!
#8
I saw this on offer the other day brilliant deal. The thing is , when it was rung thru the till I was only charged £299 !! Who thinks I should return it and tell them? lol

good deal but I would prefer a space ship.
#10
This is a good deal for an i3. I think John Lewis warranty is supposed to be really good. I would much prefer to have a warranty with them than with the laptop manufacturer. They can take many days, if not weeks, to sort stuff. Hot
#11
good price considering the 2 year warranty. Think the dell inspirons are slightly better value for money as you get 3gb ram and the faster i3 processor, plus once you've taken into account quidco the price isn't far off this. hot for the warranty!
#12
Power input is very flimsy but still good price

Only if you can trust the service engineers at John Lewis to do a good job ;)

You can get a one-year extension from Toshiba themselves for £32 and that covers you worldwide (wherever there is a Toshiba Service centre). Or extended to 3 years for £54, which is very reasonable IMO:

If a shop offers a warranty extension but insist on fixing it themselves rather than sending it back to the manufacturer, then that's only a quasi warranty in my books.
#14
nice deal
would plump for it myself but I would like a dedicated graphics card. just a quick question for you guys
i'm looking at the L650-165 with a similar spec but with the HD 5650 graphics card and is £560, you think it is worth the extra £160 just for that graphics card? or would i need a processor upgrade too to make better use of it.

type : ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5650 supporting HyperMemory™ technology
memory : 1,024 MB dedicated VRAM (total available graphics memory using HyperMemory™ technology can be up to 2,267 MB with a 32-bit operating system and 3 GB system memory or 4,083 MB with a 64-bit operating system and 8 GB system memory)
memory type : DDR3 Video RAM (resp. Video RAM and system memory combined)
connected bus : PCI Express®
#15
Not so sure about this, I think the price justifies the spec. And Win 7 64bit is kind of pointless with only 2GB RAM

I bought this for £440 about a month ago from Amazon with the hope of England winning the world cup and getting my money back.

That didn't exactly go to plan.

Laptop is good though, can't really fault it at all. Would recommend, especially at that price with a 2 year warrenty.

Or you could pay nothing and rely on the supplier's legal obligation that the goods will be fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality for a period of up to six years.

Yeah, I've heard that mentioned before. So, in the event of needing a repair how would you go about getting the supplier to meet their legal obligation? Would it be a simple matter or a long drawn out, potentially stressful one? Just interested.

Which Store was that... I may vist tomorrow :o)
#22
It isn't six years, it's whatever time limit a court feels reasonable taking into account factors such as price paid, market competitors etc. A warranty is far more static. Anything outside of a year you'll have to argue for it usually.

+1

I think people get confused. AFAIK you have 6 years in which to make your claim, not that everything should last 6 years. It just means that you can't in theory make a claim after 6 years are up.

If we are to believe you then your original post was pointless. If not, then it was a tad silly.
I mean, I might as well post how this is a good deal but I'd prefer a polar bear instead. Pointless isn't it?

Is it a good price for the laptop? what else could i get for the money or less?

Same price a few places like amazon. Is this a good deal because of the 2 year guarantee?
