Toshiba P300-172, £749 + Free 17" Carry Case @ Toshiba Outlet Cheshire Oaks

Found 14th Aug 2009
Just went past my local store to see this amazing laptop they currently have in.

The sales guy told me they only have 3 in stock so they will sell well but the spec which is listed below is very high! (Maybe 2 left if i decide to go for one!)

They are also giving away a free carry case with this as part of there back to school promotion that starts from 15th August.

You can also get a further 20% off any external Hard disk drive too which is not bad either!

i think this is ok spec but bit pricy for a laptop, the only thing good here is the cpu. for the price i pay i expect blu ray, hd screen, 500gb hard drive. ok so erm im going to go for lukewarm.
i always get disappointed with the graphics in such costly laptops. radeon 3650 is nothing to shout over, its already a generation old too. memory is also slow. a little digging around maybe nets something quicker and with better graphics for similar money. processor is good but as the above comment says thats about it, the screen is a relatively low resolution and rest of spec is just ok
