    Laptop deal, is this good?

    Hi, we are looking for a laptop atm. We need it for using the internet, eg facebook, ebay msn etc and also to use it for spredsheets and MS Word etc. I have not bought a laptop before so do not really know what I should be looking for. Obviously we don't want it to be really slow and can only really afford to spend about £300. Are there any suitbale deals around at the moment. I found this Toshiba one at Staples, is this a good offer? staples.co.uk/ENG…=WW

    Thanks

    yeah thats a good deal, toshiba laptops are very good - you may want to add 1Gb of ram extra to make it 2Gb as vista is very memory hungry. you can get that done at pc world i think, it wont cost you very much

    Cons
    you need another 1 or 2-GB extra RAM to run vista smoothly...
    secondly i think Athlon is a desktop processor hence the extra heat and noise .... but no prob if you dont mind

    pros: DVD RW?, large hard disk, integrated webcam, brand name

    donno bout the bluetooth and card reader which are always nice extra little things to have

    If you want both computers to be able to connect to the internet at the same time you will need a router.

    If you've currently got a (hardback book sized) box connected to your computer and the phone line then a wireless router would just replace that, your computer's internet would continue to work as normal and the laptop would connect wirelessly.

    Remember it's +VAT so not that good at all imho.
