* AMD Athlon QL-65 processor.
* 2.10GHz processor speed.
* 1MB cache.
* 3GB RAM.

* 3 USB ports.
* Ethernet port.
* Integrated speakers sound.

* 802.11 b/g/n wireless enabled.

* Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit operating system installed.
* Pre-loaded by the manufacturer with a suite of applications which include; photo, video, games and education software.

Any feedback with regards to Argos in general for these type of items would be appreciated, or if there is a better laptop for the same price please let me know. £350 is the limit. Thanks

you can get much better but at a higher cost. (of course). depending on how much you want to spend will obviously determine how good of a laptop you will get. i would personally recommend a SONY VAIO of some description. the CW series is very good and you get your moneys worth. i good sony vaio would cost you £400- £800. also you should have a look at DELL, they do some good offers.

the toshiba laptop, is not brilliant, thats why it is cheap. the laptop will not be very fast, and not be able to play games. also the battery life is awful. if you are just going to use it for the internet then it will be very good. if you want to use it for a entertainment laptop then it will be useless.

hope this helps.

Having had a second look at the leaflet, it says there is a separate graphics card, but on the website it say shared. Oh well guess I'l keep looking. Thanks.
