I bought this laptop after the screen went on my Sony Vaio. I spent £1100 on the previous one and it was crocked plus it had a broken hinge. So I looked for a new 'lowish end 'one in case it didn't last. Overall the laptop feels good and works well. I had it upgraded to 1 GB RAM which I am glad of as it is using MS Vista and I think 1GB is the lowest that works at all well. The screen is good and keypad feels right (better than the Viao for my part). The lid has agood amount of friction which allows it to open fairly easily but stay exactly where you put it. Thus far (about 9 months of use) it has workd faultlessly and save it beeing a ... Read the complete review

I have had this laptop for around 2 yrs now, and to be honest i've not been that impressed. After approx 12mths the problems began... the laptop would 'blue screen' on a regular basis and it did not seem capable of running even whilst doing the more basic tasks! ie playing video, streaming video etc I am sure the fact that the hard drive comes with a 50/50 partition does not help, running supplied with Windows Vista means that the operating system almost fills one partition of the hard drive, not good. I eventualy had to re-format the hard drive and remove the petition which seems to have helped with the 'blue-screen' problems. As far as the physical side ... Read the complete review

Around 18 short months ago, I found myself needing a new laptop, due to an unfortunate accident which rendered my previous model unusable. As a university student at the time, I had a tight budget. However, there were a few characteristics which I was not prepared to compromise when considering which model to purchase. These were durability, style and battery life. After looking at many many different laptops, I decided to purchase the Toshiba Satellite L40. I can honestly say that I have not looked back since. My decision was a right one, as for less than £400, this laptop is very durable (as proven after dropping it from the couch!), ... Read the complete review

This is the laptop I am typing from now, and for me it has outshone my expectations of it by some way. I bought this laptop a bit over a year ago and I think it was very cheap, about £350. For this price I was not expecting much in the way of performance or longevity however this laptop has defied the principle of more money, more ram means better. It does not have the best of specs, however it handles most applications perfectly fine. The only thing that it has a problem with The Sims, however this seems to be more of a general compatibility issue with windows vista. I realise that a laptop should last more than a year anyway, but in ... Read the complete review
