Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B-122. i3-4005U, 8GB RAM. £329.97 from Saveonlaptops

This looks a good deal for a decent new laptop. Many laptops around this price have the standard 4GB RAM, but this has 8GB and so should be more comfortable to use especially with several programs open at once.

The i3-4005U processor scores a respectable 2429 points on cpubenchmark.net and uses very little power for a good battery life.

8GB RAM, 1TB hard drive, DVD rewriter, 6-7 hour battery life. 1366x768 screen resolution.

Running Windows 8.1, so will be eligible for the free Windows 10 upgrade.

Toshiba Reliability Refund Guarantee so if it breaks in the first year they repair it and give your money back.

A 3 year collect and return warranty is available for an extra £49.49, which is probably worth considering although Toshiba are among the more reliable home laptop brands I'd say.

There is a trade in option up to £75, but you may be better to sell your old one privately or keep it as a spare.

That's a rip off
Nothing wrong with your laptop it's a fairly recent model
This trade in seems nothing more than a marketing stunt
A trade in is a trade in should take in everything old and new hence why would people trade in if it was a great new laptop

I just bought this weekend the Asus touch screen 4 ram 500gb 11.6 screen from Amazon 180
My only quibble With it is the processor I just have a thing against celeron
Would have loved an i3 or 5
Shame I can't find that with a touch screen at any reasonable price

I guess, this one:amazon.co.uk/dp/…Z5Y
But the difference is that this one has 15.6" screen.
Yeah sure but that's not worth twice the price
To be honest
To be honest I never understood the obsession of manufacturers with a nearly 16 inch screen on a laptop
It's massive and weakens the battery and takes away from portability
I think a 13.3 to 14 inch is perfect I just want a touch screen and a i3 ideally

It sounds like the trade in is a bit of a waste of time then. Better to sell privately on or Ebay probably (although the latter can be a bit risky).

Still, I think £329.97 without the trade in is a fair price for this laptop given it has 8GB RAM.
