Buying a laptop in Poland - where/whats a good deal?

I needed to buy a flash drive today at media expert but as usual in such places started looking at the other tempting offers.

Now i need a new laptop anyway so my attention turned to that area, i was looking at the Toshiba Satellite range (they seemed the best deals) and found a nice one for under 2000 PLN.

anybody have any good deals that they know of.

ceneo.pl has the best prices generally, although you might get lucky on allegro.

I recently got myself an ASUS UL20A and am very happy with it. pcpro.co.uk/reviews/laptops/357664/asus-ul20a

Toshiba Satellite range


i've been considering these too.

i have also looked at Lenovo, but too many forums list problems with them. However, they do seem to come with a few extra features.

I had a pro A30 a number of years ago, the only problem was it kept shutting down cos it overheated. I think this is a known flaw and may have been fixed.

Just go the Apple.com and get a new laptop, with warranty (it's international)

I have used this company in the past - Windpol SP Z O.O

website-windpol.com.pl
contact Piotr Kowalski email- piotr.kowalski@windpol.com.pl

The place is based in Warsaw, they mainly advertise on allegro.pl, when I found a computer I wanted, I contacted them for the price they could offer and it was always the least expensive I could find in PL. I have never had anything delivered, only collected, so I can't comment on the delivery service.

I have really gone off the Toshiba laptop, i had another look and they are really flimsy looking, horrible plastic casing and the key board just doesn't feel right. Plus i played with one for a while and its much much slower than my current desk top PC. It didnt have the best processor but i can imagine its performance once it gets weighed down a bit with all the crap you need to install these days.

got myself an ASUS UL20A and am very happy with it.

I'm going to start looking at them, the only negative i can see at the moment is the 32mg graphics card on your model. I'll need to able to play some decent war time strategy games every now and then.

Just go the Apple.com and get a new laptop,

A MacBook Pro will set you back about 6,500 PLN for the basic model in Poland, im not paying that.

Think im going to go for this one: Asus K52F, Pentium 6100-2.0 GHZ, 2GB memory, 320 GB hard disc, Intel GMA 4500m Graphics card.

Better check the reviews first though. Its such a nightmare once you get started with this review business, in the old days a sales rep and perhaps a friend may recommend something and that was that.

Depends on whether you want a portable desktop replacement (the one you mention looks decent but a bit too heavy to be carrying about all that often) or something that fits into your bag and is used when you haven’t got access to your desktop machine. If you’re only going to use a particular feature “every now and again”, you might want to ask if you actually need that particular feature at all. One of the things which I like about the ASUS I have is that there’s no DVD drive in it (which makes it much smaller): external DVD drives are cheap now; if I’m going to be needing to use DVDs, I just chuck the drive in my bag along with the notebook.

No 690 PLN for the Laptop from a friend who knows somebody, the DHL postage cost £62 or 284 PLN but theres some other stuff in the package too in any case a frigging 1/3 of the laptop price! But at least it will get here in one piece.
