PC World Laptop SALE - any good???

  taffjones 20:40 10 Jan 2009

I'm looking to buy a laptop. Nothing too flash or fancy, just something that I can do some light work using MS Office, do some work on photo's, watch a few DVD's etc...
I've seen this laptop on their website(click here) and just wondered if anybody rated it at all? Never having purchased a laptop before I'm not intending on buying another for quite a few years yet so I want it to last as well.
Your views would be appreciated.
Many Thanks

Hi, yours is fine too, but not 17" Widescreen, and not Blue-ray.

Yours has an onboard graphics card as opposed to the 256Mb card on the HP laptop. How does that cope with playing a DVD and running VISTA? Is it a bit on the slow side at all or does it work fine?
