Does anyone have any opinions on this laptop?

I appreciate it is old stock but it looks ok to me, just for general bit and bobs and no high level gaming.

Must admit I'm currently looking around at laptops, only thing I did notice is that it is not available in my area (Manchester) for delivery or pick-up, which makes me wonder if they are available elsewhere?

Argos site says available for home delivery but not for collect in store!

I can see little wrong with it, being a Toshiba it should be reliable. Personally I would have preferred it to have Windows7 installed and my taste is for a 17" display but that shortens the battery life even more.

It all depends what area you are in as to if it's available for home delivery or not, putting my postcode in it says out of stock, but try putting postcodes in for other areas (I've tried Newcastle, Plymouth Glasgow & Sussex as well as Manchester) and only 2 of the 5 show stock available for home delivery). As it's a sale item I guess that they will not have more stock available so unless your lucky enough to live in one of the areas that they can currently have stock available then you won't get one.

Ordered it this morning, being delivered Thursday will let you all know.

Not delivered as Home Delivery Network pulled the delivery due to the weather at 10:18 this morning. Argos didn't bother to tell me until I called them at 17:00.

Be patient it will come, we haven't had any post since Monday, nor binmen today. Give Argos a call earlier tomorrow and then you won't have to wait in all day and be disappointed.

Sorry all. It turned up friday 8th. I was at work all that weekend, set it up on Monday it all seems to be working extremely well. If they have any more left I would recommend it, so far.
