You realise that the Toshiba is 17" and your Acer 15.6".

Original Poster

Totally, but the main spec isn't too far from the Tosh apart from that. Just looking myself and I haven't seen anything 15.6 of a similar spec going for this price...

I merely mentioned the Tosh to give some credit to that poster as I saw this one from seeing his Amazon link ;-)

Car Phone Warehouse operate an equal opportunities policy that results in their website being managed by differently advantaged simians. Nevertheless it seems that they offer the ]same PC? for £349 with the opportunity for cashback.

im kinda clueless about laptops so.. does the 1.2gz mean it'll be slow?

Perfectly adequate low - mid range. See comparison chart ]here.

anybody tried to reclaim windows os cost in case if I don't need it?!

OK - slow processor and graphics - but the processor is very low power so cool and possibly a good battery life and the graphics are one of the best on-board (properly supports HD). The lack of an HDMI and no microphone might put some folks off.

Decent price.
