Hi //adz/// I think robinofloxley was just pointing out that if you "shopped around" you may find better spec.machines at similar prices or for just a little bit more. If you are happy to go with the one you have asked about then the choice is yours - personally I would look elsewhere than PC World - but that is only my opinion.

Look for one with similar spec. but with a larger HDD which would save you having to fit a larger one as you said you were planning to do. If you are planning to buy a larger HDD then it would probably be cheaper to spend the money on a better spec.laptop - it would also save you time and effort in the long run - unless you already have the larger hard drive.

Decent Spec. and decent price. I am not a gamer so really can't advise you much on that. Although it is an Intel i3 CPU the graphics is "shared" but I don't think you will have any problem running basic games. USB 2.0 is backwards compatible with USB 1.0

You may wish to wait for more advice from someone else with regards to the gaming but I don't think there is anything else to worry about. With your limited budget you may struggle to find anything much better - ie: you can't go for a mansion if you only have the cash for a 2 bedroom flat!

Was £399 when I posted 4 days ago. Now £369.

It's a good buy I reckon.

My 2 year old Athlon II x2 3GB+250GB was £379.

I have been very happy with it.
