Having searched the market for a decent quality, adequate spec laptop recently I expected the first machines with Windows 7 to be top end and/or expensive. This is a good machine for everyday computing (not gaming!) with decent size RAM and HDD at a price competitive with Vista machines. It's not a fabulous deal but I believe it is good value for the spec and hope it suits someone's needs. Frankly, if I had thought such deals would be around so soon I would have held off buying a Vista machine.

On line now and in store from 26 October.

There are slightly cheaper Windows 7 machines around (mostly Acer) but my research suggested Toshibas tend to be more reliable and have good backup if you do have a problem so it's probably worth paying a little more..

It's the same price at Play, Amazon, Comet

I ain't too impressed with the 1.8gig Celeron Processor. Is this really a 'deal'? I mean it's the same price everywhere by the looks of it.

Sorry to pour water on your spark Besford but I'm not sure this warrants much heat.

does it have built in WiFi and Bluetooth? :?

Steven, I'm trying to concentrate..... on your avatar! :-D

Wifi is there but I doubt it'll have Bluetooth.

lol

yeah, for 400 notes, I'd be expecting run of the mill wifi and bluetooth built-in and a much better processor than a celeron.

Not really impressed, lots of better machines out there for the same price. The Celeron is quite slow and it doesn't have speed-step, so it pulls more power than the faster models.

I think you guys are missing the point in my original posting. It's not a super hot deal but it is one of the first Windows 7 machines from a quality manufacturer at a reasonable price. If you are a normal mortal, not a computer geek, looking for a machine to do normal everyday stuff this is a decent deal, it's available now and it won't be obsolete in 6 months. Comet and PCW in my area weren't offering anything comparable in store on Friday.

I agree.
Its a decent pc for any entry level person or a child's first Pc for schoolwork etc.
Good Storage, plenty of Ram and Windows 7 included.
The people who want this will not be interested in games, only school work and general Internet usage so this serves the purpose easily.

It doesn't have bluetooth but thats no biggy as the usb dongles are about £10 for a one that does not stick out the laptop.
It does have 320gb Hdd and 4 Gb ram and a entry level dual core.
It also has Windows 7 x64 which is designed to use both core processors and Windows 7 maximises battery life so it will last longer than Vista based similar devices.
If you want better then you have to be paying more or heading down the Vista route and upgrading.
As a christmas present for a 10-15 year old you will be hard pushed to beat it with a Brand name laptop

OK, so suggest a better deal at the moment (with Windows 7) - I challenge you!
