Not sure what the dedicated graphics is as it doesn't seem to mention it. Yhink it might be ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 2400

Looks like it might be a radeon hd 2400?

This Link from the toshiba website also offers a bit more info (my first post this so i hope im doing this ok!)


Not as good as the Argos Samsung deal

It depends what you are looking for. I would argue whether this particular CPU is up to C2D standards...and believe me.. I do like AMD/ATI .
The Tosh A200 is a well made laptop

If it helps you'd also get 391 clubcard points in the deal. Also i've found a website that sells memory for £20 (to double the RAM to 4GB)


Not found much in the way of reviews for this machine though, so if anyone knows anymore about about it please post as i'm thinking i may go for this one.


I have had a Toshiba Satellite A200 for 16 months, cost me £799, not had a single problem with it and I use it daily for some heavy tasks.

Just to add, I did take Vista *shudders* off it and put XP Pro on instead.

So would anyone recommend this laptop over the HP 6735s Laptop £389.98 @ ebuyer? Im torn between the 2 really. Looking at the specs of the 2 machines the toshiba does look slightly better (better processor, and graphics card, though it hasn't got Bluetooth support and has less ram but you can upgrade the Ram easily enough).

I've just bought one today, from my local Tesco store, for £300.51, by asking the Tesco Tech laddie nicely.

It'll do my lady for her online shopping and emails, for a while.....
