My first post so go easy!

Looks like a good price for a laptop with Core i3 processor and 4GB RAM, reasonable size HD (320GB), wireless, Windows 7 HP, webcam, 15.6" screen etc - normally you are talking around £480+ for this type of spec. Worth spending the extra over a cheaper ~£399 grade laptop as you get much more for your money with this.

Use voucher code EASTER5 at checkout to bring the price down to £436.99 (expires 7th April). Without the voucher it is still just under £450 which isn't bad.

The Toshiba Satellite L500-1XD laptop is powered by the dual-core Intel® Core i3-330M Processor, and comes pre-installed with Microsoft's Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium operating system. A generous 320GB hard drive and 4GB of RAM help to complete the core specification.

Stylishly designed with a steel grey shell, the Toshiba Satellite L500-1XD sports a 15.6" High Definition LCD screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio which is ideal for enjoying widescreen DVD movies!

This portable and efficient PC boasts plenty in the way of connectivity, too, with the inclusion of fast Wireless-N WiFi technology, an RJ-45 Ethernet port, HDMI and VGA external display ports, and a useful 4-in-1 memory card reader so you can quickly get your latest photos onto your drive!

In addition, a built-in webcam allows you to effortlessly chat face-to-face with friends and family from around the world.

For fun and efficient computing, the good-looking Toshiba Satellite L500-1XD notebook is everything you need!

about £422 with quidco

Looks an excellent price does anyone know if this one is any … Looks an excellent price does anyone know if this one is any good

Main differences I can see here are: The OP's deal has a newer i3 processor, and your link has Dual Core T4300, I'm not an expert on processors, so need to look it up...…php
Benchmarks for the i3 (M 330) :2020
And the T4300 :1447
The higher the number the better, and I think the passmarks are made to be directly comparable.

OP has HDMI, slightly bigger screen (15.6" compared to 15.4", it's in a widescreen format, usually better resolution, although not stated, in my experience it's better for movies/tv on your laptop, but there is slightly less vertical space, so not as good for word documents, etc), and wireless N (better signals/range if you have a compatible router)

The webcam resolution, HDD speed and type of RAM isn't stated, but I'd presume they are the same, and both have integrated graphics, so there wouldn't be much difference between the two.

Both brands are solid.
Main difference is the CPU, Core i3 is considerably faster than a T4300 (or any other dualcore cpu of similar clockspeed for that matter).

Main reason I posted this deal was because it's Core i3 and 4GB RAM, there's probably deals to be had on older cpus well under £400.
Looks like a fab deal, I wish that I was in the market for a laptop.

Heat and Rep Added!
I don't know what to get this or the dell 1564
geat spec at this price, just wish the panel was higher res and i'd go for it...
this is good for me, i was looking at the L500-1XC at tesco direct for a while wishing it had 4gb of RAM instead of 2gb (thinking i would have to upgrade it myself), this L500-1XD is exactly that!
thanks for posting
Just ordered L500-1XC from Tesco using £10 off voucher and 6% quidco should come out at about £399 and 1300 club card points so happy with this deal! :-D
