Toshiba are giving £50 cashback on various laptops, this one seemed a nice spec for the money. The only thing you might want to do is add another 1Gb of RAM (£13 from play) which is very easy. Better processor than others at this price and good size hard drive.
Toshiba Sat Pro A200SE-24R Core2Duo T5450(PSAE4E-047022EN). For more money off go through Quidco.

are you sure its not 2x512mb RAM, rather than a single 1gb piece?

Note for people buying additional RAM:

Laptops have 2 memory banks and most laptops with 1Gb of RAM come with 2x 512Mb DIMMS (memory bars). So the upgrade the RAM you'll need to buy 2x 1Gb DIMM's instead of just 1.

Reason why manufacturers use 2x identical DIMM's = dual channel memory "doubles RAM Speed" (well, kind of, not technically correct but kind of)

warm vote for a branded make...good price for a Tosh

Amazon specs for this laptop state:-

"RAM: 1 GB (installed) / 4 GB (max) - DDR II SDRAM - 667 MHz ( 1 x 1 GB )"

Tempted to go for this since, just as I'm on the hunt for a laptop, there seems to be a dearth of Dell laptop deals.

What I'd like to know though is the spec of the battery? It simply states "lithium ion", which isn't a whole lot of use. :thinking:

On the toshiba website there are some laptops where it does state 2x512mb if there is 1Gb Ram, this one doesn't, obviously no guarantee though. I thought this seems a pretty good deal, most at this price come with old dual core or slower AMD chips like the Dell offers, even Acers in this spec go for £400+.

Interesting, it's actually a Satellite as opposed to the original laptop posted which is a Satellite Pro. Not sure whether that means there are other differences (although just looking at the Comet pics I can see those jazzy speakers above the keyboard are one difference)..

Wonder why this deal hasn't made the front page, seems pretty hot to me..

BT SHOP 2.5% Quidco:-D (£10.57)

Also at play.com £429.99 - about same price after 4% quidco

I put BT shop in the initial post cos i roughly worked out it was the cheapest with Quidco. You can get the laptop for £419.95 from Rankhour but theres no Quidco. I can't understand why there is not more interest??

I think everyone is hung up on Dell deals so postings for other brands get overlooked a bit.

I did rate this hot but have to admit I'm going to go for a Dell Vostro 1400 instead since I can customise the spec exactly to my needs/budget.

(£399.99)

£349.99 after cashback ebuyer.com/pro…279 :thumbsup:
