good deal, you prob want to put Amazon in the title

Got one this morning for about £211 via Amazon Warehouse. Not FHD but other than that it looks like a great laptop for the price.

Little undecided as seeing the posts on here regarding laptops, I will be using premiere pro and photoshop but don't want to pay over the odds. A lot of people on here have stressed over SSD and FHD, think I've seen every laptop deal for 6months and read something negative!

Good value, but the screen resolution is 1366 * 768

I agree! I'm looking to replace my daughter's laptop & when it looks like I've found a good deal, it then gets negative comments, leaving me more confused :|

Does't matter if there's an i7 underneath the hood with 16GB ram. If it doesn't have an SSD, chances are it'll lag IMO. I've seen lower spec machines completely destroy new laptops just because of an SSD.

can you not upgrade the HDD? Another deal posted was for a similar laptop but with the i3, 4GB RAM and a 128GB SSD - you can buy a 128GB SSD for under £40. So even for £340 it's still cheaper and has a better processor and twice the RAM. This is assuming the upgrade is needed - personally I would upgrade it as SSD makes so much difference!

yeah you'll be able to upgrade, just guessing here but the benchmark between a i3u and a i5u isn't much difference though. a cheap i3 with an SSD will easily cope with demands of browsing, office, and older games. don't know how much more you'll be getting by paying more for an i5

Yeah laptops built within past 4-5 years are all very easy to upgrade ssd, optical drive and memory. No longer need to fiddle to get the entire front chassis off, take screen apart to get to the hdd. Usually a few screws on back and 4 on hard drive cage and you're golden. Well worth the investment tho I suggest a 500GB ssd unless you intend to remove the optical disc drive to replace with your old hdd that came with the laptop. No biggie, a lot of caddies on ebay for whichever laptop model you own.

I'm pretty sure on the Ideapad 100 you do have to remove the keyboard and the base to expand the RAM and change the hard drive. Theres no trapdoor.

Erm... No.

Battery life is very poor around 2.5/3 hours by just browsing.
It is heavy and so not very portable as description tries to claim.
You get what you pay for, I got a i3 version with 500GB HDD for £194 last week but personally I wouldn't pay more.

Once you've gone FHD on a laptop there's no going back. Otherwise it's a decent enough lappy for 300

Anybody know if this machine will hook up to an Elgato HD 60 and stream to Twitch sweetly?

The specs say it will, but I'd love a second opinion..

Thanks..

I have an existing 256gb ssd I'd want to use, but would love to swap the pointless optical drive and keep the 1tb drive. Would this work: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/172233545759?

I'm assuming I don't need any cables, but what about a plastic blanking plate for where the drive cover used to be?

many thanks

I think that is the HD bracket that fits the original HD inside the laptop, it's not a replacement bracket for the optical slot or anything to do with the optical slot.

If you look online the only way to swap the HD is to open it up by removing the keyboard, quite long winded but i'm going to do it - an SSD is an amzing way to boost the performance.
#27
I grabbed one of these as an Argos refurb for £180 a few months back, and I wouldn't pay much more than that.

Not bad for what I paid, but the sound is awful, the mouse buttons are very noisy, there's an uncomfortable amount of flex in the plastic case, and it's a pain to swap the hard drive. I don't mind the screen, but I'm not a FHD fanboy.

Perfectly fine for web browsing, videos and coursera (with headphones), which is what I bought it for, but the price needs to drop £80+ before it's better value than the HP trade-in deals we see each month.

Oh well, probably why I dont own one :). All the laptops Ive got at home (Asus, Dell, HP) dont have any difficulties swapping out. Tbf even if you still need removing keyboard etc, its not complicated and wont take much time as long as you do it quite soon after you buy the laptop so that you dont have a ton of data to backup.

Yes this is fine, you will need to buy the cover where the drive was to cover this hdd. Should be somewhere on ebay as well.

Yes it should be fine. Though I never quite understood the need for a streaming PC when my main rig is sufficient for both.

Think I'll wait for Skylake to come down in price. Kind of old tech Q1-15 considering this retails for 499.

Two finger is on everything and I think on Apple products first around 2006. You're mad two finger scroll is a lot better :)

Terrible, TERRIBLE customer support - I had to get real with a small claims threat a few years ago to make them abide by their obligations under the (then) Sale of Goods Act when something pricey I bought became faulty after a few weeks.

YMMV of course, but I think the reviews on Trust Pilot say it all...
