    Either the second or the third one.
    If your going to do a bit of gaming the second will prob have a slightly better graphics card.

    Personally id get the second one as I dont recommend asus' and hdd and ram can be easily upgraded at a later date.

    I'd go for the Toshiba one. I doubt that Staples is the cheapest for it.

    Staples is the cheapest I can find it, play.com want £429.99 for it

    Remember those Staples prices exclude VAT....

    SNAP

    I would go for the Asus one

    Dells currently have problems with power (chargers, power ports, batteries and motherboards being changed on many of the inspiron models)

    Toshiba's satellite/equiem have MB problems. (One day they will just not boot up due to the motherboard being fried)

    As a guide look on Ebay for laptop components. If you see lots of components being offered for 1 particular laptop then there is normally problems. Also look for laptops with keywords not working or defective.

    Just so you know this is what I do for a Living!!

    LOL

    Are you not allowed to say e-buyer?
    sorry e-b*y*r:whistling:

    Go to the Dell website and customise a 15" Inspiron as close to £400 as you can. You should be able to get a much better spec for your budger than the one at staples.

    Go here

    configure.euro.dell.com/del…dhs

    £379 inc delivery. You can upgrade the RAM for an extra £20 to 3GB making it £399. The processor is already better than the other laptops you are looking at.
