Not quite as scorching as it was at Easter but back in stock and still a good deal at £279 using £20 off code this weekend or while stock lasts.
2yr guarantee too.
Could help those who missed out last time.

Don't forget up to £75 possible cashback from Toshiba for trading in an old laptop:

1.8Kg for a 13.3" laptop, that's a little heavy?

No I don't think it was 2yr at Easter but Tesco customer services are very good and it's not at all cheeky to ask......please let us know how you get on.

shame about the price increase, still good value.

We've got a whole bunch of these at work. Great little machines, although I'd recommend a RAM upgrade if you can stretch to it.

It has 6GB?

That should be plenty for most folk.

I suspect swapping the HDD for an SSD would give it a far more noticeable boost ....

Really? I don't think most people who buy small-ish, sub-£300 laptop need more than 6GB of RAM...

6GB is fine we use one for business trips and its fine for lots of programs running at the same time with no issues....

No cd drive on this though.

Oh wait, my apologies. It says 2GB in the memory dropdown, and ours have 2GB also... ignore me

EDIT: In fact, it says 2GB everywhere except the headline... do these definitely come with 6GB RAM?

Who needs cd's any more :P

Don't forget either Topcashback (1.51%) or Quidco (1.5%)

Does it come with 2gb or 6gb of ram, seems to be saying 2gb on site



I think it was said in the Easter thread that these machines have been 'upgraded' to 6GB.

Exactly. The only thing I'd need an optical drive for is install an OS and even then you could run it off a USB.

Would this play the recent Counter Strike game?

It is 6gb ram, placed my order, rang tesco because the delivery store was wrong because their system defaults to nearest location & not the store I'd selected initially & they've knocked another £20 off.

Thanks OP ordered 2!

Was gutted last time we missed out, so thanks for posting it

dont forget you can trade in your old laptop for up to £75.

I need a bigger screen tesco.com/dir…608

Would appreciate comments if this is good value for money or better comparable out there.
TIA

I have a similar spec (or rather my 9yr old does) hp, it's great for family use & losing hours to football manager 2014, I imagine this'll be the same, never used windows 8 though...

Been after a reasonable budget laptop for a while for basic home use , this looks ideal so ordered one.
Cheers .

Web site says 2GB RAM. Is it correct?

Where does it mention 2 year warranty?

2 year guarantee included on laptops & PCs bought by 15/06/2014. Excludes Sellers. Exclusions apply: tesco.com/foo…014

So is this 2GB ram or 6GB ram does anyone have one ?

If you look in the previous thread for this item its stated there it is 6GB as well. Ordered myself with the Topcashback which I will convert into Tesco club card points as well.... roll on the points

Yes for a £500 laptop using stronger and lighter materials but for sub £300 it is the right weight for the materials used.

Hot ordered one after staples cancelled my acer order

They have change this to 2GB online now

Yup i got a confirmation of dispatch now rather cheekily giving the item title as
'Toshiba Satellite Pro L830-17T 13.3" Intel Core i3 2GB 500GB Laptop_Black_500GB'
When in the order confirmation email its 6GB, I may well choose to be difficult over it...

I'm collecting one on Tuesday and if it only has 2GB Ram I'll be not be best pleased, and that's putting it lightly! :-)

picked one up yesterday and it has 6GB Ram.......but I am going to return because wi-fi not able to pick up a weak signal that is essential for my needs.
Anyone know of a laptop that has exceptional wi-fi????

Wouldn't it make more sense to get an access point

not available now

Hi,

I have just received this laptop, it took me about 2 days to set-up Windows 8.1!

I have found that the fan seems to be on constantly, or at least as soon as a browser is opened. Does anyone else find this is happening with their L830? Is there anyway to adjust this, I have looked in the power options but nothing seems to work. If I can't resolve this I will have to send it back as it's annoying, plus the keyboard takes a bit of getting used to.

Thanks

Emailed Tesco Direct with screenshot of 6GB of Ram. They called me after a couple of hours offering a return or a £40 refund. Took the £40 and ran... Oh he said they had done a few partial refunds already for this

Can you post this screenshot - I'm having trouble with tesco

I'd get it if the laptop didn't look so ugly
