Reasonable price but this is largely a netbook in laptop clothing.

The CPU about halfway between an atom and a celeron, although the graphics chip should mean it can handle HD video.

2.5kg and no HDMI seems bizarre though. No need for it to be that heavy and the graphics chip supports HDMI.
wow wot a deal go for it

Alternatively .....

or 20 pound cheaper
this amazon with free delivery…7U2
If I had to buy one of those Toshiba's it would be the John lewis one, like bigsmurf says the curry's one has a poor main chip, the main chip in John lewis one is nearly 3x more powerful, Don't be fooled by the amount of ram in the curry's one, 4GB is all you need for these type of machines.
If I had to buy a budget laptop now I would go for this one…780
The John lewis one is still the best Toshiba deal of the three, more ram 4GB as opposed to 2GB in the Amazon one, plus you get 2 years warranty & free delivery with John lewis.
I would still buy the Co-op one.
This deal just posted is bang on the money for a very good machine…955 one is showing you better value!
Thanks for your comments everybody - the John Lewis option has been purchased.
i have this laptop, its a rather good laptop good price and not bad for running gaes on low to medium at a push
