Not an expert me, but yes, a good deal. This offer has cropped up a few times in the last month - there is plenty of expert talk on the boards already.

A fast chip and a good make. I bought one and am very happy with it - the durability was key for me, with a small child in the house.

Negatives: relatively small hard disk compared to the present standard. No DVD writer.

Oh Ok..wanted to ask whats they keyboard like on this machine Simon....Just that some laptops have really irritating narrow keyboards....if you know what I mean lol..Also would Vista Upgrade be free when buying this machine..

Original Poster Editor

Thanks simon, these types of deals are never my strong point so its great that we have so many knowledgable members (like yourself) that can give feedback :thumbsup:

Hopefully simon (or another) member will be able to help you out on the keyboard issue

Is anyone else getting an error on their website? I cant get the product even by searching.

Keyboard is fine for me. From q to p is exactly 18cm, inclusive of these letters.

Note that the specs given above by millarcat do include a DVD writer, at least I think that's what "CD / DVD Rewrite Speed : 24x" implies. I can't work out how to find the specs on the dabs site. Furthermore I believe that the max RAM on this model is 2 meg not 4, as given on the specs above.

No vista upgrade on my deal.

I should add the vertical measure: three keys come to 5.7cm, inclusive.

Where did you get those specs millarcat?

Thanks millarcat.

Maybe someone better than I am at deciphering these lists can clear up the question of the DVD writer.

Has anyone mentioned that this also comes with a £100 cashback from Toshiba?

I think I'm getting confused...there is a current Toshoba £100 cashback offer on some XP loaded models...but not sure if this one is included...probably not.

^ £306 quid for this would be a bargain, and with the added security of a reputable seller too.
Dabs customer service is second to none IME.

Original Poster Editor

Thanks so much for that extra info :thumbsup: Sweet !! I'll add it to the follow up post!

which toshiba is this then! the A120-... what as there are lots of 120's that dont qualify

So do we get the £100 cashback on this model????

Please could someone confirm this asap....

well looking at the tosh site this 1 doesnt come wit h £100 cash back

Thanks for the latest info..so sorry if I added excitement to this post.

not from what i can see as this 120 has a 40gb hard drive and none in the list do

Original Poster Editor

Oh well .... it added a bit of excitement to my day anyway So its def not part of the offer then?...

Thanks for the info anyhow, it could well have saved money !

Might ring up DABS or anyone selling this model to get them to confirm if this will qualify for the £100 cashback.

at last i have finished the great toshiba £100 off hunt and have come up with a great little deal!
Ebuyer are selling the a120-145 for £505.75 delivered this does fall into the £100 off toshiba category! so it works out at £405 delivered! (after cashback from toshiba)
tis a better spec laptop than on the 1st page aswell
quickfind code: 119881
Toshiba Satellite Pro A120 Core2 Duo T5500 1.66GHz 512MB 80GB DVD/CD/RW 15.4" Wide TFT WLAN Windows XP Pro

Is the 3 year warranty really costly or do they throw it in free of charge? There must be a catch in them saying we will give your money back if laptop gets faulty they will give money back etc...

Bump:thumbsup:

hey guys...so will toshiba give £100 cashback if i buy this laptop from ebuyer, as i need to get a laptop soon...cheers

Unfortunately its not in the list of qualifying machines... see ]here. The one mentioned on the ebuyer site (]here) seems the best deal.

I really need a laptop for my missus... Anyone found a better deal than this one? Would end up being £405 after cashback.

Thanks

hey mate...the one that you mention on the ebuyer site is rather good and im about to get it....but, Ebuyer do not mention anything about this cashback offer from Toshiba..unlike Dabs.com, who, with the laptop mentioned iin the very first post..mention that you get £100 cashback from toshiba...is the ebuyer one definately in the £100 cash back promotion offer from toshiba..??

from what i can see in the toshiba t&c's it doesnt say it has to be from a particular store only that it has to be a new purchase and has to be from there list, otherwise i wouldnt have posted it

My interpretation of the T&Cs is that the ebuyer laptop is valid. I'm going to order 2, one for the mrs and one for the in laws :? . From what I can tell the DABS one on the OP isn't valid for the £100 cash back and the only mention on the Dabs site is that of the full machine refund if it breaks (see banner front page). :thumbsup:

Alex

i knew ther would be a catch to this cashback offer...so you have to have the extended 2 or 3 years waraty to qualify for this cashback offer...i new it, too good to be true....:-( ..ah well my missus can wait..a bit longer..

Where did you see the information about the extended warranty? I have read the full terms & conditions and couldn't see it mentioned anywhere??

sorry mate...my mistake..:giggle: .i was so excited about this offer that i didnt read it properly.:oops: .i was assuming the above quote said that you had to have the extended waranty....so before i go ahead and order this..can someone please confirm that buying the laptop from Ebuyer will allow me to claim my cashback from toshiba..

ok guys...took the plunge and orderd from ebuyer..total came to £516.32....so after £100 cashback..it should be £416.32....not bad for the spec....at least my missus will be happy on 14th feb.:-D ...lol

Billy can you tell me which laptop did you went for? couldn't find one that's £516.32. am interested in getting a laptop too.

I bought mine as well - but mine came to £505.75 see ]here. There is free delivery but only if you select it at the checkout.
