Why on earth don't they put an SSD in these things... my 2010 i7 FHD Vaio absolutely flies with an SSD about 10 times quicker! :) thanks op though :)

At this price it's acceptable. The question is how upgradeable is it? Is RAM and the hard drive easily accessible for upgrading?

Edit: 2 cell battery and "up to 4 hour" battery life, ouch.

Why is it acceptable, I see no reason for it to be, machine arrives immediately needing a (potentially fiddly) £30-£50 upgrade that will make it 10 times snappier. Crazy.

30-50 if its just a casual internet cruiser, but a lot of people store photos and other crap. For a decent sized SSD its nearly as much as the laptop.

That said i wouldnt use a machine without an SSD :P

As someone that hasn't been that interested in laptops for a while, how bad is a 5th gen i5 paired with an SSD in this day and age? Was about to buy this until I read your comment haha

Absolutely fine, I doubt you'd even notice the difference in normal usage between an i5-5200u and an i5-6200u.

Replace the DVD drive with a HDD caddy and stick the 1TB mechanical drive in there for mass storage, then put a 240GB SSD where the 1TB mechanical drive was originally located and put your main programmes and OS on there.

Two gens behind now, but you really probably won't notice it for most day to day tasks. Still I would expect it to be cheaper. But at this price you don't find many full HD screens

how is 1920x1080 not full hd? anyone ellaborate? most other laptops seem to be 1366x733

Read the spec much? It clearly states resolution is 1920x1080, therefore it is Full HD. I can also personally confirm this as my mother has one.

If Currys have not only got the spec wrong but also the title mentioning full HD they are a joke. If you asked in store I doubt the staff would even understand the question.

Bought this a year ago for £250. This version here has slightly better processor and double memory.
Came with Windows 8, but was free upgraded to Windows 10.
Do not buy this, awful, awful performance on Windows 10, HD usage at 100% nearly all the time. Booting up and loading all programs takes 5 minutes, literally.
Looking to replace this year with a laptop with an SSD and giving this to parents.
Should now be a crime to not have SSD drive for laptops.
For info my screen is not 1080p, my model is X555L.. so make sure before you buy.

It'll be fine, Intel's CPU's haven't had a big generational performance upgrade since the move from the 1st to 2nd gen. i3/i5/i7. That's not to say that you wouldn't notice moving from a 2nd to 6th gen. CPU, but the jump from one gen. to the next is pretty insignificant for day to day usage.

Keeping it in your basket doesn't guarantee you this price, nor does it reserve you a unit should they go out of stock.

If the price changes (up or down), the price in your basket will change and if they go OOS, you still won't be able to buy one.
