    I'm after a new laptop because the crank handle on my old one is too short. Has anybody got any (informed) opinions on this one?

    Cheers

    Ian

    Specs look OK and I know a ew people who run Toshiba laptops. I would say go for it.
    Last year I paid the same sort of price for a 15" Dell with i3 processor and 3GB RAM (maybe a better graphics card ) so the price seems pretty good as well.

    I can recommend this one - it's similar spec to mine (except I have more RAM and a slightly faster i7)

    Nice Bri and if I had just won the lottery I may be tempted. Smile

    It's without doubt the most powerful PC I've ever used Smile

    (I should point out, it's my work PC, not my own)

    I use a Toshiba L500, which is a lot better than the 5 year old PC World laptop I first had. It was fine too, but eventually lay down and died! I'm well pleased with my L500 except for 2 things - it has a shiny screen, and doesn't have a firewire port. Lack of firewire means I have to download video from my MiniDV camcorder to my desktop PC, then copy to ExtHDD to access video clips from my laptop. My laptop is higher spec than my PC, so I prefer it for video editing.
    Alex.

    Ian,

    I purchased the 12H model of the L775 3 months ago and have been delighted with it so far. I bought it for surfing mainly, didn't want to spend over 500 so went for this model with i3 dual core, 4GB Ram and the 17" screen. I find the screen and keyboard excellent. The only thing to note is it doesn't have a graphics card or a firewire port in case that's important consideration for you.

    Thanks everybody. I ended up going for an L775-14E with 6gb and am over the moon with it. LR and PS both load lightning fast and it's actually lighter than my old laptop even though it has a bigger screen.
