Laptop advice appreciated..

    Hi all,
    I've been asked for advice on a big purchase my brother wants to make but honestly I'm not so wise when it comes to this grade / spec range. I aim to email him a link to this thread if you can help.....
    He is looking at Toshiba P300s and found one at pixmania (link will follow).
    He has a budget of about £800 and wants the best he can get for this..
    All help / advice appreciated.....
    Rep for helpful replies...

    If you think there is a better deal or better laptop by all means let us know.

    Advice don't buy from pixmania!



    If you want to buy from them i suggest contacting TOSHIBA first just to confirm that SHOULD you need to make a warranty claim then you wouldn't need to go through PIXMANIA but go direct via TOSHIBA, If so then buy from them otherwise keep looking.

    Check out [url][/url] and go through the review pages and eventually you will get to the £800 laptops! It will give you a rough idea of what's out there and a good review to boot!
