Doesn't look too bad for the money. My only concern would be the battery life as on the AMD's it always seems quite poor.

im a fan of amd but the semprons are equivlanet to celerons so they are pants this is rated at 2ghz and its single core, better buys out there. The plus side the ati 4200 is good on a laptop at this price.

heres a exmaple of slightly cheaper laptop from toshiba with amd 2.1ghz single core sempron and ati 3200 £313.49 comet.co.uk/sho…ion

You can't compare Toshiba to this Compaq model. Just drop into any shop and try the Compaq mouse pad. The Compaq has Lightscribe DVD writer, HDMI output and dedicated number pad; the Toshiba has none of those. The Compaq housing is also much more sturdy than the Tosh. Heat from me.

Compaq/HP both the same company, use same chassis! Just different branding.

Toshiba rated significantly higher for reliability and customer satisfaction than Compaq in a recent Which? survey of a large sample of users.

Agree on the spec though (if those things are important to you).

It's a good price for a Win7 machine from a big name anyway.

£327 - think Asda might be looking at Tescos websitehttp://direct.tesco.com/p/i/computingphones/homepage/HP_main_banner.jpg

i have used neither of them so i dont know about how stury they are, im just looking at specification, the Toshiba has HDMI from ATI 3200 graphics, lightscribe is not a big advantage the disks are really expensive.
