I was going to post this from another merchant, but Dabs have it slightly cheaper here.

£379.99 after cash back direct from Toshiba. They come with a voucher in the box for claiming, you just have to make the purchase before Jan 31st.

SPEC:

2GB RAM (single chip, takes up to 8GB Max)
15.4" TFT
250GB Hard Drive
DVD+/-RW/-RAM
Vista Business/XP Downgrade/7 Upgrade

There are a couple of negatives to this thing as far as I can see: sub-3-hour battery life, 1280x800 screen, doesn't have 802.11n wireless.

For the money though this is excellent. Toshibas are great laptops - not as pretty as Sony, Asus, Apple - but very solid machines.

Could do with more specific specs i.e. processor model, ram speed, hard disk...

It's an alright price for a toshiba, good laptops. I would rather have something cheaper or faster from Acer though, or grab a second hand thinkpad for REAL durabiity.

I still have the thinkpad I bought (second hand!) for uni about 10 years ago, a 233mhz mmx pentium with 64meg ram and a 2gb hard drive. It's been dropped, trodden on, kicked about, had the power lead yanked out by a careless snagged foot countless times, and it's still working absolutely fine now. It's a bit tired maybe, but there's not one single thing on it you could genuinely call "broken". Even the original power supply works too. Every laptop I've had since (about a dozen) has had some sort of failure, normally lots more

Oh and people who critcise Acers, have a look at the more recent models, they are a lot more solid. Their R&D QA sucks and they've let some right stinkers through design and into production, but they have got a lot better over time, and their value for money is undeniable. With what you save you can afford an extended warranty anyway :P

Seems like an pretty ordinary spec. for the price.

We used to have Toshibas at the college I work at. Their quality started to slip some what especially the L models. I would handle one and see if the base feels flimsy before I bought one. They keyboards are weak spots on these but cheap to replace. Other parts are also easy to get hold of

For a T5870 I guess this isn't a bad price though especially if this is near the top of your budget. Your normally looking at T3400 or T4300 at this price. Ram is average though 3-4GB seems to be standard now

L series isnt good IMO.

A series is nice and the U series
