Toshiba Satellite Pro A300-25E Notebook 388.14 + 3.5% Quidco @ Misco (13gbp) (price includes 50 gbp cashback redemption)

Found 12th May 2009
Seems a pretty good deal from a well-respected laptop manufacturer....fairly high spec although the details haven't all been loaded on to the Misco site yet. To get this price need to claim 50 gbp cashback via the Toshiba website, and buy before end of May.

Worth the extra 50 quid compared to this? -…ID= . This one's basically the same machine but with an extra 1GB of Ram and 250GB hard drive instead of 160GB. Eh, toss-up, I guess.
