Remember that Tesco are not computer literate like PC World, so any advice from Tesco will be limited. Service warranty and support is another issue, Tesco will rely on third parties, usually the manufacturer.Acer and Gateway are the usual laptops Tesco stock, with various discounts being offered, depending on stock movement.

This, in my view, is the pick of the crop. click here. This one will perform really well for you.

I wouldn't touch the celeron or sempron ones.

Fuiitsu-Siemens Amilo 2515 currently being sold at £399 is not quite the same as the machine on the FS website. No software (Works), no back up disks or modem cable.
The lack of technical information at Tesco’s might make you reply on the maker’s website description.
But it’s not the same thing. Best check exactly what you are getting, although I doubt anyone in the store will be able to tell you! Looks like a good machine however.

Many coupon sites provide you with laptop coupons that you can use to get $300 or more on your next notebook. You can find coupons at vendor's site.

Why do you assume that nobody working in Tesco knows anything about computers.

Let's be sensible about this....

'No software (Works'..Open Office is free and 100x better.

'no back up disks'..most computers do not have back up disks. You are prompted to make one using 2 DVDs (10p each).

'no modem cable'...ye Gods, I'm sure at least one friend will have one as the world and his dog seem to be on wireless.

'The lack of technical information at Tesco’s might make you reply on the maker’s website description'..anyone not taking some self-responsibility and doing their homework prior to buying anything deserves all they get. There is comprehensive information available on t'Internet, more comprehensive than any assistant.

It's interesting to note that seasoned forum commentators are responding to a request for laptop buying advice posted well over two years ago :-)

Well, maybe it's been a bit quiet lately, and they need the practice.

I personally will never ever again buy anything other than food or household consumables from Tesco.
I paid £400 for a Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop which developed problems during the first couple of months requiring reformatting to put it right.
However one problem could not be solved by this and though minor is annoying.
I took the thing back to the shop I purchased it from expecting the 15 month guarantee to be honoured. No such luck, I'd had the PC for over 30 days and the no quibble return was up.
After demanding to see a Supervisor or Manager I was totally ignored by the staff.
I gave up trying to get satisfaction by phoning etc. I was on medication for depression and this didn't help my resolve.
I am about to buy a laptop for my Granddaughter but it certainly won't be from Tesco.
Although there is a Tesco store a mile from me I shop elsewhere, it costs more in fuel to get there but the shopping bill is cheaper.
