    Hi,

    Not really a laptop specialist but this looks a great deal. Any obvious flaws with it at this price? Thanks.

    Hi there, as obvious flaws go, this one has a BIGGIE!

    The processor on this (Celeron M) is not very good by today's standards, with it being outdated and probably not very fast. You should be looking for a Core Duo or Core2Duo.

    There are some good Dell deals around, like this one:

    Inspiron 6400
    -15.4" Display
    -Intel Core Duo T2130 1.86GHz,533MHz
    -2048MB RAM
    -120GB HDD
    -8xDVD+/-RW (DVD Writer)
    -Windows Vista Business
    -1 year collect and return warranty
    £387

    For a little bit more you are getting a much better laptop. If you search around on this site, you should be able to find some good Dell deals, for around the £350 mark too. Hope that helps.

    i was looking at plenty of laptops around this price, and if you are going to spend £350 or more then buy the dell. i ordered the 6400 mentioned above with a truelife screen for £397 and i get £19.90 back via quidco so it works out pretty cheap. especially compared to that Fujitsu

    thanks. I'll go for the Dell 6400.

    thanks. I'll go for the Dell 6400.



    Good stuff. Dell are the best for "budget" laptops I think.

    I am computer engineer for my sins, I take fujitsu laptops apart daily....
    My advice - avoid like the plague !!
    They are badly built and go wrong more than most others we see.
    Get a Toshiba if you want good build quality,
    Dell also are good for the price ;-)
