Probably asking too much, but a 1080 resolution would have been nice. Looks good for the cash though, if a little bulky.

Also not sure on the keyboard from looking at the pic.
Better deal than the ebuyer one for most people. £30 for Windows 7 and a better brand makes more sense than an extra 4GB RAM
Got my inlaws simlar spec lenovo and its horrible cheap feeling the keyboard is also round wrong way with FN and shift keys very frustrating.....

Hk
For a Corei3, 380M, you are looking at paying around £300.

For this sandy bridge, you are looking at paying £420.

The question is, is the (slight) extra speed, worth paying the extra £120?

Personally, I would much rather pay £300 and get the older generation Corei3. The extra £120 is too much for my liking.

I'm after a laptop like this but don't need the latest processor. Could you point me towards a decent £300 machine that has similar features to this one outside of the processor?
Thanks. Am after a larger HDD and more RAM. I know RAM can be upgraded easily and HDD less so. Really want 250GB as absolute minimum (prefereably more) and 4gb RAM. Once you add these the price gets closer to the lenovo? Any other offers you're aware of?
I've got my eye on the Toshiba.

Toshiba, along with Asus are apparently top when it comes to reliability.

£330, core i3.

No the Core i3-2310m is a bit slower than the older Core i3-370m and Core i5-430m.

But is it worth paying an extra £100, over a laptop which has the Core i3, 380M?

Is the RAM upgradable on this one? … Is the RAM upgradable on this one? http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Toshiba_Satellite_C660-1E2_1044806.html
