    Impressive specs for the $$ One question I would ask before considering this lappy is " what warranty is provided?" If they provided decent backup then this would be worth consideration. Although the processor speed is a little lacking

    This is a very close copy of some of the HP TX machines that cae out a while back. Pretty good spec - although the chip is 'slow' compared to the market.
  • craftykiwi
    It says a 60 day satisfaction return warranty and then a 2 year warranty.

    Oops sorry for the doubling up lilpretzel!
  • craftykiwi
    Remember it is dual core which helps with the speed if you have software that works with dual processors.

    Thanks for the info about the warranty :) I guess that means you would need to send it back to them - is it postage only or can you take it in somewhere? As it is really a 'non branded' type item you would want to make sure you understood the warranty Yeah the core duo will help but will be limited by the "T5450 1.66 GHz"

What do you think?
