Quite a few ppl are doing a similar offer, there's no confidence:oops:.
tom tom are doing something similar in currys. saw a leaflet there.;-)

btw good price for a top brand i3 laptop

If it had a gfx card, I'd be sold.

Heat added

good deal

Nice!

yh scary :P

"Purchase this Toshiba product and you could claim the price back if England win in South Africa"

Does that mean win a game or win the tournament

Hot deal.
My sister bought this 2 weeks ago from tesco diect for £429 and absolutely loves it.
The only downside is the glossy screen and reflections in a bright room, other than that great laptop for the money.

Good deal, just a shame that it doesn't have a better graphics card, otherwise I would've been sold (wouldn't mind paying the extra if it had one).

Here's a link to Toshiba's spec page:
uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/inn…se/

It appears that you can extend 1-year warranty to 3 years international for only £50 (on site is more expensive):
uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/inn…rue

Good points:

Windows 7, 64 bit.
Powerful processor with 3MB cache
Side way vents (better on a soft surface)
esata port
memory upgradeable to 8GB (1 slot free)
Cheap 3-year warranty extension
Wireless N

Not so good:

Intel graphics
Only 1366 x 768 resolution screen
Some reports of screen being too reflexive
Only 5400 rpm HDD
Only 2 USB ports (or 3 if you don't use esata)

Not bad for under £400 if you don't play games.

Comes with Windows 7, 64 bit but the OS recovery disk is only 32 bit. WTF?

One question about Intel Integrated graphics: Is it good enough for Flash based stuff, such as BBC I-player?

Original Poster

yes the graphics will handle bbc i player very easily.

Im not gonna be playing games on this laptop so i dont need a good graphics card. But i was wondering is this a good deal for an i3? should i wait abit and maybe there will be a better deal? or should i just get this? Battery life is abit poor i hear?

So to get 8GB memory you would need to buy 2 4GB sticks, and take out the 2 GB in there at the moment?

battery is about 3 hours depending on use

its about the best price for a i3 now but like always there's no doubt i3 laptops will come down eventually but cant see them being a whole lot cheaper than this for a while yet as there's still plenty of older dual core cpu laptops too move first but who knows for sure.

Its up to £419 now :-(

FFS was about to buy this aswell.

That's a shame. It makes it almost the same price as Dell's Inspiron 15:
configure.euro.dell.com/del…c00

Compared to the Toshiba, the Dell comes with an extra 1024MB of memory but has a smaller HDD and no Wireless N. It seems to have no esata port but is a very useful half a kilo lighter. Not sure how the screens compare subjectively. Horses for courses really.

What about this one then??? hotukdeals.com/ite…am- Same spec with the exception of the HD which is a bit smaller on the Dell

looks a decent alternative,hopefully Amazon will drop this in price again soon,think i would still pay the extra £20 for the tosh but that's just me.
