    I am more than happy for people to point me in the right direction if they think a better deal is out there. thanks

    Whilst it has 8GB RAM, and a 640GB HDD, the i5 is one of the earlier 2nd gen, the screen is a pretty low res, I would want 1600x900 really, there is no Blu-ray, the GFX is decent, but nothing special and it certainly won't be winning any awards, does have e-sata but no USB 3.0. If it really does have 6 hour battery life then fair enough, but I doubt it.

    In conclusion, this is not bad, you could do a lot worse, but most of it is last years components bundled into a pretty poor case with VERY limited extra's (i.e. bluray, 900p/1080p screen), it's a good deal, and a decent price, just be aware of the shortcomings

    Hi, please how do you know the different types of processors and the time they were out?

    This is sandy bridge because of the i5 model number and can easily be Googled. As for specs, this is OK for price.

    Thought I would reply, I know quite a bit but I am no expert, it depends really on your needs, if you wish to play top end games like Battlefield this laptop would struggle but more basic games it will handle, I have the exact same card in the laptop I am typing on and have played NFS world on it, Battlefield 3 can be played but on low settings and a bit of tweaking as you can see on youtube videos, toshiba as a brand lasts forever I personally found that they are really high quality but then again I dont throw my laptop about, so yh what do you need it for?

    Edit: Thought I would correct myself, I have the GT525M, this is the GT540M and as can be seen on youtube is fine for high or medium settings, and can manage ultra settings too

    l can not see the point in having a high end graphics card like the GT 540M with a laptop that has a screen resolution 1366 x 768 pixels. Why do laptop manufactures put high end graphics cards with low resolution screens? Pointless. Please, l would like to know!
    onamission100
    Not a bad Price but note :

    Additional Information
    * Please note item 5085817 has previously been 599.99.
    So only a £100 saving , but still a saving.

    1, GT540m is middle class
    2, HD resolution means that the GPU can deliver higher FPS than if it was HD+ or fullHD screen (not defending 768p resolution though)

    oh and btw, your comment is pointless.

    I guess for external screens? not sure if that works, thats a seriously good point

    the graphics card is good enough, but at 1080p the fps will probably take quite a hit with newer games.
    margamboy
    If you keep a look out you can pick up dell xps laptops with better processors and graphic cards and 1080 screens quite often with blu ray for these kind of prices, they will be outlet machines but never had a problem before, just like new.

    You can use an external screen and increase the resolution.The GT540M is ok for gaming, it's not high end even for a laptop. Personally a GT 555M would be the minimum I would look for, for gaming on a laptop, but that's me.

    The following site will give you a rough idea of its capabilities, you can also look at youtube videos of similar spec machines running games, but again that's a rough idea.

    http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-540M.41715.0.html

    Laptop gaming is severly restricted in comparison to desktop gaming, meaning you need to pay a lot more for a laptop with a decent GPU in comparison to a desktop with a decent GPU.

    I guess more sites such as GaiKai and Onlive (Onlive been in the tech news recently due to being took over and financial woes) will become popular as you can play games on just about anything that has a screen and a fast net connection (controller restrictions apply e.g. controller, mouse , k/b). I can only see these sites being useful for single player currently, you're gonna get wasted in a multi player environment due to latency.

    Toshiba as a brand doesn't last forever. Have you ever used a Toshiba C660 for example? Very cheap build. I can give you plenty of examples of Toshiba laptops where the left mouse button and DC Jack fail regularly. I speak as a laptop refurbisher. It's irritating when people speak about brands as a generalisation. Who here has owned an older Toshiba Qosmio with Nvidia GPU? Some in that series are a nightmare for going wrong.
