>Windows Vista® Home Basic

Shame it is Vista Home Basic.

Not sure why they put Vista Home Basic on a laptop with that spec, it deserves Vista Home Premium.

I have a laptop with the P8600 chip in it, let me tell you it is no slouch!!

To be honest with you, it loads pretty much everything instantly, firefox loads within a second, as do most office applications.

You wont go wrong, apart from the refurbishment thing, just make sure you check it when you get it out of the box etc!!

thanks guys i think im gonna go for it. Its slightly over my budget but its a good deal.

And I had W7 Pro bought through the student offer but my old laptop fried itself before I got a chance to use it so it matters not about w7 basic!
