I have seen several offers for notebooks recently, one which was a package (included a printer) from Dixons, that was a Pacard Bell laptop. There was a Toshiba offer too, but that seems to have dissapeared. I'm wondering wether to go with Mesh or Dell, as I can get the specifications I would like.
My friend has found problems with the Dell laptops that his school has, but likes Toshibas.
So my final question (unless you can suggest a better firm) Toshiba, Mesh, or Pacard Bell?
(Pacard bell are the only firm I have had any experience with (my Scanner for my HP computer is a Pacard Bell)
I would be careful with novatech. I bought one two years ago, it works fine but supplies of replacement chargers which go frequently and batteries are very difficult to get hold of. Four month wait in the case of a charger and there is nothing more useless than a laptop without a charger.
I will not *cough* click there: Before my HP desktop I had a Tiny and it was nothing but trouble, my friend has a Time that since being purchased just under two years ago has had two new hard drives, a new CD-rw drive, a new DVD drive, and plenty other problems I could mention.
I have just bought an Acer from my local Staples/Office World click here It has been reduced to £599 as you can see. It is a Pentium M Centrino processor so has wireless capabilites,good battery life. It has a 64Mb graphics card and comes with a DVD writer.
I had a look at the Acer laptop you suggested, it looks good but has a much smaller processer than the other laptops I have looked at (Toshiba & Packard Bell Laptops both have a 2.8 processer (intel celeron).
