Deal: £785 Toshiba Satellite P855-34P touchscreen laptop

Online retailer Buyitdirect sells the Toshiba Satellite P855-34P laptop for £785, including free delivery and 784 Nectar points, on its eBay account.

The device is powered by a third generation Intel Core i7-3630QM processor, one that comes with four cores clocked at 2.4GHz (with an overclock to 3.4GHz) and 6MB cache. It also means that the Satellite P55-34P comes with an Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU, albeit one that is not used to power the display.

There's also 16GB of RAM, 1TB hard disk drive, Windows 8, a DVD writer, four USB 3.0 ports. Bluetooth 4.0 and a 15.6in TruBrite display (with a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution) powered by an Nvidia Geforce GT640M with 2GB GDDR3.

Also on the spec list are a battery life of 5.5 hours, a dedicated numeric keypad, Wi-Fi, Wi-Di compatibility and a silver finish. It is a shame though that the laptop doesn't either come with a full HD display, a touchscreen panel or a slimmer profile.
