This has 1x1GB RAM, as opposed to 2x512MB, so quite cheap/easy to add another 1GB. Battery is 6 cell I believe.

Laptops Direct also have this at the same price, but even with Quidco it costs more as you need to buy an accessory to get free delivery.

I've been looking to buy a laptop for a while and quite like this. Similar spec. Toshiba/Asus seem to be £600+.

Fair enough. Graphics do seem to be poor according to reviews, but I won't be playing games. I thought the spec. was ok for the price, and from reading up on here and MSE, Lenovo, Toshiba, Asus etc. seem to be good for quality but more pricey.

I've not much experience with laptops but I did have use of a work Toshiba laptop a few years ago - battery was 3+ hours - and it was so sturdy that when dropped (more than once) nowt happened to it at all!

Lenovo is a top make, basically its IBM and Im writing this on my T42 model right now. Ive had a few laptops in my time and found this to be the best. Only drawback is the battery - it heats up quite a fair bit, it needs lot of air to keep it cool, if you know what I mean.
My next laptop that I would buy would still be IBM/Lenovo though.

Ive had a Toshiba Satellite, not bad, it was a widescreen one. Looks good, screen top but as its LCD it has its fault. There was a known problem with them which I suffered from. This laptop is very good, just worry about the screen.

HP is good make also, but the model I had, when it becomes hot, so does the keyboard

Ive not had a Asus laptop but I only use their motherboards for the desktops Ive built. For h/w, they are excellent.

Ive voted is hot as in my opinion, I think this is good price for the quality you are getting.
