Came across this at Currys, a refurbished Toshiba with an Intel Core i3-330M processor (faster than Pentium Dual Core, and uses less energy => better battery life?), 4GB of RAM, and 320GB hard disk drive.

Use voucher QUIDC5 for 5% off the original price tag of £399.99.
Also get 3% QUIDCO for a final price of £368.80 - an extremely good deal for this spec I think.

Other specs include webcam, media card reader, HDMI output.

It's refurbished, but with a 12m warranty - if it runs for a year without issues, it's as good as new in my books.

Only available for home delivery.

Good price for a modern entry-level laptop.
It'll be tough to find cheaper.

However, are you sure cashback is paid on the full amount?
The quidco website indicates it's paid on the pre-VAT (and pre-delivery) cost.

In this case that's £9.70, giving a final cost of £370.29

If you don't mind refurbished laptops, check out Dell Outlet as you can get intel i processors for a similar price

Dells refurbs are excellent but Currys seem to usually be appalling. I’ve bought a few in the past and they were mostly faulty, had the wrong spec (single core when it should have been dual-core) or were just plain tatty. I had one good one out of six and I only persevered as you can return them at no cost and it’s a way of checking out a system that you might like without committing to buying.
Currys have reaffirmed just how good the Dell Outlet generally is; even they have the very occasional dog though.

you think laptops will go cheaper in xmas time...should i wait?

Toshiba laptops have power jack issues according to my (and a lot of other people's) experience. I've had three over the years and all of them went the same way. Overheated and cracked the board and solder around the power jack. £90 to repair if you're outside the warranty and not smart enough to do it yourself. Oh and while I got my brand hammer out ....their digital camera's are not up to much either, maybe that's why they pulled out of the market. Other than that, i think they're great ;-)

I bought the 2GB version of this and ended up taking it back, the screen has a really bad viewing angle (making it looked washed out), it has a noisy fan and the keyboard and trackpad are extremely cheap and tacky.

tech always gets cheaper never buy a laptop til you need one (apart from ram fluctuations ) plus you get the full use of the warranty

Would be tempted if it had dedicated graphics. Still a good price for the spec though.

I'd view this one live before you buy.

nice :-)

If you ignore Apple and Sony (too expensive), Toshiba have some of the best scores for reliability and customer service amongst the widely available brands. I'm not doubting your experience but large samples are far more statistically valid than one user's experience.

Thats so - but Curry's after sales rep is one of the worst around, for such a big store (part of the Dixons/PC World group - if it's the same as years ago - themselves with dismal reps)

expired?

Looks like it has gone up in price?

Perhaps, but I prefered your Vostro deal X)
