Agreed. I'm looking for one myself (for surfing, Word, etc.) and this is a very good price. Only reason I haven't bitten is that I'm also after a CD/DVD RWer - and it doesn't look like this one has got it. Otherwise, more than adequate specs.

It's fast enough now for a majority, although probably not that large a majority. It's how it's going to compare three years down the line that's the question and given that it's a lot slower for what you can get for not much more the answer seems likely to be 'badly'.

Slower relative to the fastest, latest etc but 'slow' in real world terms? Don't get so hung up on performance stats

And how shall I judge it instead? Wishful thinking?

Something like a Javascript benchmark (Kraken, Sunspider etc.) is likely to be a good proxy for how it handles websites as they become more demanding. A Pentium 3558U or it's recent 3805U/3825U is three or four times faster there and can be picked up for £245 with 4GB of memory. Spend the £15 to upgrade to 8GB if you need to but even for £40 more this seems like a poor buy.
Everything is better for a few quid more......
