    It will be the first configured laptop I've bought. The main trouble was keeping the price down, it's sooooooo easy to keep on improving bits slightly and before you know it your Laptop costs more than a car.

    Sounds impressive.
    Does it make tea and coffee too?

    I bought this Toshiba C660D laptop January 26 2012.

    It's full of bells and whistles and I'm happy enough with it.

    The whole deal cost me 700. Euros.

    It's Windows 7.

    Windows 8 is out now but I don't know if it is any advantage to get it.

    The shop gave me a HP Printer/Photcopier as well.

    Nice people in that PC World shop.
