Also £20 more, doesn't come with bag + mouse and you have to deal with Curry's exceptionally crappy customer service if you have any issues (currently sitting at an abysmal 2.1 out of 10 on trustpilot ). I'd take this deal over yours any day on the last point alone.

Your choice mate. You'll probably never use that bag at all, but will be sitting long hours in front of your lappy., which I repeat is non FHD :)

Used/Unsealed from CurrysEbay for £279.20 Here

Laptop in pablomalin's link has newer and faster cpu, ddr4 instead of ddr3, ips instead of tn screen, full hd instead of crap resolution.
Both are weak machines, but there is clear winner between these two laptops.

I would still suggest to sit and wait, prices seem to be going down on a daily basis. Dell have a huge stock of refurbished home laptops and will hopefully release 10-20% off codes so 1080p i5 inspiron will cost around £320.

Yet, despite the above mentioned issues/arguments/weaknesses it sits at 205 degrees as I type

Great price for the overall package.
Weak. Lol

Any Lenovo laptop these days will be cold from me I'm afraid. They just too dodgy and can't be trusted.

Lenovo Service Engine

Lenovo Service Engine sends out non-identifiable system information from your PC to Lenovo, the first time your computer goes online. Meanwhile, the Lenovo OneKey Optimizer bloatware would be installed on laptops. These same behaviors would occur following a clean install – thanks to a Windows 8 feature called Windows Platform Binary Table – which stores executables within the UEFI firmware.

Superfish

In early 2015, it was discovered that Lenovo laptops shipped to stores and consumers in late 2014 had malware preinstalled. Masquerading as a piece of typical manufacturer bloatware, Superfish Visual Discovery was a browser extension that analysed images, checked if they were products, and then displayed cheaper alternatives. Superfish hijacked browsers. Worse still, it installed a self-signed HTTPS certificate, which makes HTTPS connections as weak as HTTP, enabling Superfish to intercept your Internet traffic. This is known as a Man-in-the-Middle attack, a key attack vector in online crime. Oh, and to make matters worse, the HTTPS certificates had the same private encryption key on every single affected Lenovo computer!

Lenovo Customer Feedback Program

In September 2015, however, it became apparent that the high-end ThinkPads, ThinkCenters and ThinkStations — built and promoted as alternatives to Apple computers — were being sold with preinstalled malware, the Lenovo Customer Feedback Program, that forwards personal usage data to Omniture on a daily basis. Omniture is an online marketing and web analytics company, currently owned by Adobe. Following Lenovo Service Engine and Superfish, Lenovo Customer Feedback Program seems like blatant opportunism. Fortunately, Lenovo Customer Feedback can be uninstalled.

Lenovo Solution Center

In May 2016, it was discovered that Lenovo had failed to learn from its earlier THREE mistakes. Despite being largely useless already, we now learn that it includes a privilege escalation vulnerability that allows attackers with access to a device on your network to execute malicious code. While your home network might be secured, there’s a good chance that the public Wi-Fi you use isn’t. What this means is that the Lenovo Solution Center can be used to subvert your entire system, and potentially a whole network. Embarrassingly for Lenovo, this isn’t the first time LSC has had problems, and it has now been patched twice in six months. Back in December 2015, hacking group Slipstream/RoL demonstrated several vulnerabilities, including one that could direct users to malicious websites (blocking the usual methods of checking).

Blocking the installation of Linux

Using custom RAID setups on SSD storage devices, that CANNOT be altered it blocking people from installing an operating system on their newer Lenovo laptops that isn't Windows 10.

Tried that. It mentions e-code but when you click it returns a server error, 404 - file or directory not found. :(

Looks like a very good deal. I can't find any more details about it anywhere, the HP site has no mention or images, even the processor (i3-5020U) seems rare. Thinking of getting it for daughter, would it play Sims 4?

Deals are meant to be posted, not commented. If you find a good deal, maybe be a decent person and actually post it rather than trying to use it as ammunition to denounce somebody else's post?
It's simple, here, I've posted it for you:

What do you mean deals are not to be commented, people have the right to know if there is a better offer out there on the market. Just do a proper research. I didn't say Lenovo from currys is perfect, it just has better spec for the money. I'm in the market but still haven't decided what to buy. Currently own a lenovo thinkpad 11 inch which now is 5 years old and suffer from motherboard and keyboard malfunction so not sure if Lenovo is the way to go for me.

Anything around this price with Intel / DDR that's quite light

"People have the right to know if there is a better offer out there on the market"
Comments are a great place for discussing what's better value, but if you've already made up your mind which is better, you should post it as its own deal so more people will see it, since a lot of people just compare the results of a search without properly consulting the comments (which is kind of silly but oh well).

Thanks for linking the alternative btw - I do want people to know their options. But if you were to post it as a separate deal, it would have its own dedicated comments. Then if you left a link to that deal here, people would be taken to a page where they could see the deal itself and criticism focused specifically on that product.
Idk, just a suggestion ;)

Looking for other pointers is exactly why I was reading this deal in the first place
