    Toshiba L300D - 224 Any Good?

    Hi, we are looking at buying 16 of Toshiba Satellite Pro L300D-224 Laptop - Laptops at Ebuyer . £350 on ebuyer, with £50 cashback, so great price. But are they any good? Would you recommend them?

    Thanks.

    Ram looks a bit pokey but thats nothing the £50 cashback couldn't solve, otherwhys looks good to me.

    I just bought a few L300's (not D) and upgraded them to 2gb ram, they're rather impressive. after cashback we paid just over 300 each - well worth it.

    I have a few disks around here that can cure that -

    - Xubuntu
    - Windows 7 RC
    - Windows XP MVLP

    Might even have some Dos/Win3.1 floppies around here

    Thanks for your replies. Yes, I know, I'll put XP on it. Comes with the downgrade option

    Be interesting when XP really does stop being supported by MS, if it's not already. My guess is we'll be using it for a good while.

    We bought 10 of them a couple of week ago, with 3 year edu warranty and the start packs (bag, mouse & USB hub). It came pre-loaded with Vista, however we got a XP downgrade disc in each box.

    All round it's a sturdy laptop, however I'm basing on having them for just under 2 weeks (however we have other L300's around which are realiable). It is not flashy, but a good work horse

    Basing on how we're finding them (so far...) I would say it's a good laptop to get.
