Like it. Nice and small, but still a decent spec for web and email.

Pc Pro like it too.

"Even in its most meagre specification, the Dell Vostro 1310 is a superb business laptop. It's affordable, well built and has clearly been designed with a keen eye on its intended audience. But, to label it a business laptop is almost to deny the breadth of its appeal. In fact, it would be as comfortable in a home environment as any consumer portable. This alone is enough to earn it a well-deserved Recommended award."

My apologies I thought the original post was for Dell!!...I'm brain washed by Dell Sorry tapjames

very similar spec (different hard drive - 160 instead of an 80) on dells site is £385 - excellent price!

You could buy a 160gb hard drive though and 2gb of ram for less than £85 quid.
Also with this laptop it is easily Upgradeable and also i think it takes a core 2 duo.

I wasn't aware laptop cpu's were upgradeable.

I've never heard of ITCSales though. Are they reputable?

Don't worry about the thermal heat pad. I used Artic Silver

If you know what processor you already got using wikipedia you can find out the socket and then usual you can type in the socket which it is in to wikipedia again and it gives you a list of others that use it. All you would have to make sure is look at bus sizes beacuse i think for laptops there smaller but i do some reading.

ITC Sales are ok i not had any problem I order one of those Laptops the other day and it came next day no problem no scratches or anything. Recover CD Include to a bonus for me.

You can also buy some other good thermal conductors and heat pad new though RS. Or do what i did and use a heat sink compound.

en.wikipedia.org/wik…775 if you look down the side at specs it tells you all the processors which use that socket.

Found the guide. It really does look simple.

That page is for a desktop socket.

I think the Celeron M 540 uses Socket P.

Exactly what I was planning on doing

Great deal for a Vostro, but OP should show £249.05, ie including P&P £15.22 (£12.95 + VAT) to UK. Still a cracking deal for less than £250. I have a Vostro 1400 and can vouch for the build quality of these Dell business laptops.

Not up to EEE size for travel but at least you get a fast and much more all-round usable laptop.

Good value

Is the screen big enough for use as a word processor ? and how long would the battery last if it was just running Word ?

Screen resolution is 1280 x 800 which is the same as most 15.4inch laptop screens out there. Things will look a bit smaller, but will still be perfectly useable.

Light usage test as done by PC Pro got 5 hours out of this machine I think.

I've been thinking of getting something smaller than my Vostro 1500 for travelling but not sure when the best time will be to do it. At home and office I have desktops so I mainly use my laptop on the train for email, smallish spreadsheets and typing up reports (which will usually get formatted and laid out when I am back in the office). I don't need much power or great graphics, and I don't need a full sized keyboard but would rather not be too cramped when typing.

With the latest EEE PC adding to a range of models, and offerings from MSI, Advent and Acer, do the computer experts out there think we are about to see a flood of sub-£200 basic ultra-portables about to hit the market?

In which case I would imagine that should have an impact on 13" screen laptops too.:idea:

It says the battery should be around 2.5 to 3 hours of continous use eg doing word processing and stuff of the sort.

I got a Dell Vostro laptop earlier in the year and its a good machine. Its worth getting the uprated battery. I get around 5 hours out of mine in low power mode.

Great for the net, email, and watching movies on the go.

Although this is cheap the deals do get better. I paid around the same with a 15.4 widescreen and I think it was aslightly better spec, free web cam etc.

Low spec, but the price is decent.

I *might* want to do the odd bit of photo-editing (with photoshop) while out and about. So which do people consider the better buy? This of the Asus EEE 901?

Now out of stock
