    is this a good offer?

    Hi,
    I'm not really that technical minded so would like a bit of advice form some kind soul who is! Due to an insurance claim i have been offered a Toshiba satellite pro L450 13Q to replace my damaged Toshiba Equium L20-197. Could some one please advise me if this a suitable replacement? if not then what should i ask for?
    Thank you!

    If these are the laptops:

    Original Broken
    Replacement

    then I don't see why you shouldn't take it. It's a 2.2ghz Celeron from a 1.6ghz and 1GB of memory up from 256MB, also 160GB HDD from 40GB HDD, seems like a good replacement to me.

    You might wanna see what others say though.

    Please refrain from bumping your thread as it's not even been 1 hour since you posted it.

    yeh should be a nice upgrade to the broken one, im assuming your cover was just for a similar spec not what you originally paid for it?

    Thanks Nvening. its through house contents insurance as laptop was 5 years old! Its new for old but doesn't really clarify whether replacements will be equivelent to spec or to original price paid. To be honest i only use it for internet browsing, coursework and minor gaming so hopefully it will be fine for that.

    I don't know how old your Equium is, but it didn't get sparkling reviews. The Satellite Pro appears to have more RAM thatn the Equium, a faster processor, and it will have a later operating system (which may or may not be a good thing - but you have little choice).

    So on the limited information you have given, and a VERY quick search round Google for some specs, I'd say it was a reasonable offer. You are getting a newer, better specced (on paper) laptop for your old damaged one.
