My daughter is going to uni and needs a laptop under £1000. Which is the best?

i think anything by toshiba, ibm or sony are worth looking at.

For the reliability, Toshiba is still the king in laptop (only in m view).

Toshiba run a "Notebooks for Students Scheme" with Gtech click here. You an knock around £100 off with this scheme.

I think it is better to get one with Intel Centrino processor (battery is long with this processor). Light weight is also important if your daughter want to carry around.

Tshiba Tecra A2(PTA20E-07801QEN) with 15" screen only costs £814.28 with this scheme. click here (better to upgrade memory to 512Mb with extra £50)

The best thing is to look at the PC Magazines. They tell you about the Pros and faults. They test them and make recommendations.
