My son has his heart set on buying this laptop from askDIRECT. Does anyone have information about, or experience of this product or this company?

Could be cheaper to buy from Toshiba.
Who have 2 outlet stores open at Ashford in Kent & Cheshire Oaks.

Thanks for that, Zero G. I can`t find this particular model listed even on the Toshiba site.
Could be it`s a very new release? I found a P100-222 which is perhaps similar. He is a big fan of games so is quite fussy about graphics cards etc.

PCWorld have the P100-286 on their website

Tosh have made some models that only retail through selected stores which may explain why that particular model is hard to find in reviews.

Very similar spec Toshiba machine in PCWorld Support site

Looks as if PC World want £100 more for it than askDIRECT, FreeCell. That`s quite a difference in price.

I have purchased quite a few items from AskDirect and i must say the service has been great with no problems whatsoever. They also have a few stores in London.

Thanks wjrt,
I think I must have been looking at Toshiba`s American page where I don`t think this model was listed.

Very reassuring mOLe2000,thanks. He has now gone ahead and ordered it and I will post back about how we get on.
