Deal: £388 Toshiba Satellite Professional L870 Core i5 laptop with a 17in display

If you want a decent laptop with a big screen, a reasonably fast processor and most importantly a dedicated graphics card, check out this Toshiba Satellite Professional L870 laptop which is on sale for less than £400 at Amazon. There are at least three reasons why it is a worthy laptop if you're looking for one (and don't mind carrying an extra kilo or two).

It runs on a rather powerful Intel Core i5-3230M, one which is clocked at 2.6GHz and comes with two cores plus 3MB cache. It is a third generation Ivy Bridge model which means that it runs cooler and delivers more performance per MHz than its predecessors.

Then there's the display, a 17.3in model that features Toshiba's very own TruBrite technology. This is a 1,600 x 900 pixel model which provides with 37 per cent more pixels than an average 15.6in model.

Thirdly, there's a dedicated graphics card on offer, the AMD Radeon HD 7670M, one that comes with 2GB of graphics memory.

Despite offering so much for so little, the laptop also packs a decent amount of system memory (4GB), a big hard disk drive, (500GB), a large touchpad, a tiled keyboard, a one-megapixel camera, a DVD writer, Wi-Fi, USB 3.0, a HDMI port and a Gigabit Ethernet port.
