While this is not a BAD laptop a couple of things you should be aware of.

When Intel brought out the Core 2 Duo CPUs they wanted to make some available at a mid range price. These they called the Pentium Dual Core and they reduced the amount of level 2 cache to 1Mb to reduce the cost.

While the T3400 is near the top end of Pentium Dual Cores it is not a Core 2 Duo (which usually have at least 2Mb of level 2 cache) and if possible you are better going for a Core 2 Duo.

While there are plenty of Pentium Dual Core laptops around I believe Intel have now stopped making these Pentium chips and gone to only Celeron (for the budget low end) and proper Core 2 Duo for the mid range and top end.

Also the Front Side Bus (FSB) - the speed the data flows round the laptop - is only 667Mhz in this laptop.

It is better to go for a laptop that has an 800Mhz FSB (one at 1066Mhz would be even better but probably too expensive).

This laptop does have 3Gb of memory, which is good, but if you can get a laptop with a "proper" Core 2 Duo CPU and an 800Mhz FSB it would be even better.

It may be that to get that you need to pay a lot more, and if that is the case then this laptop will probably be fine.

This Dell Inspiron comes in at £398 incl VAT and Delivery

Guill, that is pretty good! Well done Pity you can't "downgrade" the OS to XP

We're sorry. The Web address you entered is not a functioning page on our site.

Tesco have the same processor with 4GB RAM and 320GB HDD for less than this in store. It's an Acer of some sort - think it was £375

I just noticed that the Dell Inspiron 15 has had some price reductions and some memory upgrades from 3072mb to 4096mb. Spotted them ]here
