    Laptop Advice - Spec/Price - Is It Ok?

    Need to buy a laptop for someone and I think the following is an ok spec for the price. Would you agree?

    Asus X51RL-AP999 Laptop
    Intel Core 2 Duo T5250
    120GB Hard Disk
    2GB RAM
    DVD-RW
    ATI XPRESS X1100 128M Share VRAM
    15.4" Vista Home Premium
    2 year warranty

    £439.98 - Asus X51RL-AP999 Laptop Intel Core 2 Duo T5250 120GB 2048MB DVD-RW WLAN ATI XPRESS X1100 128M Share VRAM 15.4" Vista Home Premium 2 year warranty - Ebuyer

    Recommended a Fujitsu laptop (from ebuyer) to work colleague, he had a look at ebuyer and came back to ask about the Asus. He purchased one and bought it in for me to sort out an issue - I think it's ok for the price.

    Any opinions?

    Thank you.

    Looks okay to me for that price....I dont know about your country, but here you would get Dell laptops with the same processor, but 80GB HDD, 512MB ram for around 340 pounds...

    You can spec a dell vostro 1000 for a similar for that price or a vaio NR series can be had for similar but they are all pretty much the same spec so yeah it's fine for the money.

    Will try to spec a Dell but I think it'll come to a bit more or less warranty.
