Found 19th Aug 2014
I've been after a cheap laptop just for browsing and watching movies and found this one on the Currys website. I don't play games so couldn't tell you if it's powerful enough for that. Looks a good deal. Hope it helps someone else.

The slim black Toshiba Satellite C50-B-14D 15.6" Laptop is a great laptop for home or travel.

Windows

Windows 8.1 puts your favourite apps and programs in one place, so you can enjoy great computing at home. Simply click on a program tile to open it and move around using taps, swipes and pinches on your touchpad.

Windows 8.1 includes familiar additions, including expressive Live Tiles, the re-introduction of the start button, improvements to search and extensive customisation options.

Celeron® processing and superb storage

The Satellite C50B14D has an Intel® Celeron® N2830 processor, which provides ample power for home computing, whether you're browsing websites or updating spreadsheets. This is supported by 4 GB of memory.

Save your documents, music and more on the 500 GB hard drive, providing space for everything you need to store.

Elegant design

The slim Satellite C50B-14D has an elegant textured finish which gives the laptop a modern feel. The sleek design is perfect for any home, whilst the tiled keyboard and large touchpad make it easy to use.

High quality audio

The DTS Sound technology on the Satellite C50-B14D provides smooth and deep bass alongside crisp speech, so music and videos will sound great. Immerse yourself in your music with the integrated stereo speakers.

Wireless and classic connectivity

With a built-in WiFi connection, you'll be able to connect to your network with ease, and lets you use the Miracast connection to stream video between devices, without needing to use a cable or network connection. You'll be able to stream videos from your laptop to your large screen TV without the hassle of additional cables.

The Bluetooth connection means that you can connect your Bluetooth devices to your laptop, whether it's your tablet or smartphone.

Three USB ports on the Satellite C50 allow you to connect your USB devices and peripherals - one of these is a high speed USB 3.0 port, which means you can transfer large files quicker than ever before.

If you don't want to use the Miracast connection, you can use the HDMI port to attach your laptop to your HDTV.

Thanks for the post.....CPU Benchmark is 994 (just thought I would mention it to save others looking it up)

It's basically a big slow lump, but you get what you pay for I suppose!

Add a ssd and it won't be.

I bought one of these for Hubby last week and it might not be the best laptop on the market but it isn't slow and it does everything his other laptop did.So well worth the money for those of us who just want to surf and play a few flash games

its a solid state hard drive. You will lose space but can use old hard drive as a portable one.

Hi our HP G61-110SA has gone kaput! We don't game or anything but do watch streaming movies...Just really wondering if this is as good as old laptop as don't understand the benchmark thing sorry. Thanks.

Bought this from PC world and returned it the next day. One vital component not included in this laptop is a CDR Drive.
Even the Tech guys as Worcester couldn't believe it does not have one.

A LOT of laptops do not come with a CD or DVD drive any more (makes them cheaper, lighter, and battery last longer) and not many people use CDs/DVDs regularly any more (even most software is download) so hardly a VITAL component. £25 gets you an external one to plug in the odd time you need one.

Surely the Tech Guys weren't surprised by this...
