Been looking at this laptop:

Will be using it for most things apart from high end tasks eg. gaming, video editing etc. I was wondering if the celeron processor would be adequate for this.

My PC is an AMD3800 single core. Which is more powerful/how does it compare to the laptop for performance? Looking to connect them via a wireless router to share files and broadband.

I think thay you will find it woefully slow running Vista on this spec. It seems that it would run XP ok and a lot of people with similar specs are changing to XP. With only 512mb menory it would fair badly in the Vista upgrade adviser on memory and graphics. Toshba quality is first class but the price reflects the performance.

OK, thanks for that - didn't think about the OS. I think I will have to spend a bit more.
