Hi all,
I've been asked for advice on a big purchase my brother wants to make but honestly I'm not so wise when it comes to this grade / spec range. I aim to email him a link to this thread if you can help.....
He is looking at Toshiba P300s and found one at pixmania (link will follow).
He has a budget of about £800 and wants the best he can get for this..
All help / advice appreciated.....
Rep for helpful replies...

If you think there is a better deal or better laptop by all means let us know.

Advice don't buy from pixmania!

If you want to buy from them i suggest contacting TOSHIBA first just to confirm that SHOULD you need to make a warranty claim then you wouldn't need to go through PIXMANIA but go direct via TOSHIBA, If so then buy from them otherwise keep looking.
