Thanks for the reply. Unfortunatly that's about 400 pound out of my price range!

Could you tell me how this compares please.

Of the two you have asked about I prefer the Samsung, another option and less expensive http://www.dabs.com/...7WJB.html?src=3

Thanks for the follow up and you are welcome :thumbsup:
Toshiba are a good brand and in all honesty unless you play a lot of games or watch a lot of HD movies on the notebook a 15" screen is all you need.

Incidently, will the i7 2670qm pro cpu in the laptop be a lot better than my current q8200 in my pc?

Sorry I was so long, the q8200 was way down the list compared to the i72670qm and took me a while to find;
i7 http://www.cpubenchm...670QM @ 2.20GHz
core2 http://www.cpubenchm...Q8200 @ 2.33GHz

thanks!

So from what i see with those scores, the i7 is roughly twice as good as the quad?
