I was asked to look for a deal for a friend, so found this. Looks okay to me.

• 8GB DDR3 RAM – plenty for standard home use and should see you right for the life of the laptop

• 256GB Solid State Hard drive makes it pretty fast to load and react with files and simply turning on, 256GB is a decent amount of space too but it isn’t huge.

• 5th Generation Intel® Core™ i3 processor -Decent CPU it’s not the fastest but it’s a reasonable CPU which should be fine for what you need. Intel i3 and i5 are pretty similar in laptops as you've only got 2 cores rather than the 4.

• 15.6’’ 1366 x 768 screen - It’s not Full HD but it’s probably fine for most home needs.

The only thing is it doesn’t have a DVD drive. These days, we almost never need a DVD drive as everything is downloaded or streamed online or transferred using a USB stick. But that might be an issue for you, I don’t know.

Not bad for 256GB SSD and 8GB RAM. I personally wouldn't worry about the non-FHD but others will. Cheaper here (same company?) £370

OR this one which I think is better value at £290 from Ebuyer. CPU is a little slow but offset by SSD. Bargain. If you can live with Ebuyer.

The processor in the Argos deal is a "Intel Pentium n3710" which, combined with a traditional (mechanical) hard drive will make the Argos laptop a bit (quite a bit) sluggish. It IS a big hard drive though. The Ebuyer one I linked to above is about 50% faster (CPU-wise) and, together with SSD will be much faster in general use. Question: do you need a big hard drive? If not, go for the Ebuyer laptop IF you prefer to buy new (rather than second-hand). Ok?
