Anyone know if the Time Ultima Notebook - P4 2.66 GHz is any good?

I'm seroiusly thinking about getting this laptop but the only thing that puts me off is that it isn't a mobile Processor. Do you think this matters?

Any advice would be great.

Cheers

Dave

It depends if you are going to run the notebook on batteries a lot; desktop cpu's take more power, therefore will drain batteries more quickly. The other thing is they need a good through flow of air, bear this in mind if you use it on your lap, sofa or in bed. Ensure you don't block the vents. A good spec though.

I will be using it more from the mains than batteries as it will be replacing my PC - will keep the air flow in mind.

Cheers mate

Time Notebooks/Laptops whatever books do not come with a floppy drive.

Neither do they come with the full XP cd just a restore disk.

Yeah you're right they don't come with either, you have to pay £50 for a recovery CD which is a bit crap but not really bothered about floppy to be honest - will just buy seperate one.

Anyone know of any other good Laptop deals going at the moment? Have a budget of around £1600

I was originally looking at getting an AJP but i've been put off by a few Horror stories i've heard about their quality. Shame, coz they have a great spec.
