1.7GHz in a laptop for £280 quid is not bad. Actually i3's are not bad full stop, best bang for buck processor.

Seems a bit steep for an i3...

You'd be surprised if you go looking for i3 laptops on the new architecture

4005U processor is not the quickest.
Good for batter life but the "M" processors are a lot faster.
OK Price, but there are a fair few others around this price range also.

bargain for old technology, you mean?

IE its a false economy as you'll be replacing it with a future-proof PC sometime soon.

i5's are only £200 odd quid more in the sale and i7's are £500 more if you can stretch to that, so you're future-proofing your pc.

i3's seem a bit pointless to me, plus they should be giving them away, just like old brick mobile phones as nobody wants them.

I agree but for the price you'd struggle to find otherwise

Outside of refurb, I would agree.
They do have some good refurb prices at argos though. :)

I appreciate what you are saying here.

But being a computer enthusiast myself and using a Intel core i3 4340 (One of the most highly rated and used CPU's out there) I would argue with giving them away ahah

Not sure why people are voting cold, this isn't a bad price when considering the refurbs are £240 on eBay and were being sold for £299.99 last month. I have one of the 'refurbs' of this model BTW and honestly think it's brand new - still had the Toshiba seal on the box and absolutely no sign of it being preowned... no refurb stickers, ect, but had a 'managers special' sticker on the box... so my guess is it's just slightly damaged boxed ones that can't be sold as new

It's only 2.35cm thick, weighs 2.2kg and runs very quietly with virtually no heat. Mine has around 5-6 hours battery life when not plugged in as well... Sure, you could pick up a refurb i5 2nd gen laptop on eBay for less than this but it's going to be heavy, have 30 mins to an hour battery life and runs hot & is noisy as hell, consuming probably x4 times the power of this - what use is that when commuting, etc?

It makes me laugh people immediately shun it for being an i3, but don't even bother to research the fact it's a new Haswell CPU so can't be beaten in terms of efficiency. Sure an older i3 3110 is 500 MHz or so faster, but it also means the laptop runs hotter, needs to be thicker, and will run around 2 hours worse minimum in terms of battery life. I mean, just look at the Toshiba C50 version of this with that CPU... 4 hours max battery life , 1cm thicker and 100g heavier - that's probably fine for some... it's all swings and roundabouts really.

I replaced a 'faster' core 2 duo laptop and the difference between the two is night and day...

EDIT: Here's what I mean about how people saying an i5 is better value than i3 while completely ignoring different architectures are wrong...

Thank you for the comment some great points!

I was knocking the fact it was haswell, I was just saying the M versions are generally preferable.

In reality the current Celeron and Pentium Dual Cores with an SSD fitted will complete most home user needs more than adequately (office and surfing the net), they just won't be very good for gaming.

How is a CPU based on the newest architecture 'old technology'? And what's the point in paying £200 extra for a laptop that's literally just used for casual web browsing/YouTube, etc? For people on a budget with those needs a newer gen i3 is the sweet spot IMO.

1st Gen i5 Vs 4th Gen i3 is a bit of a stretch comparison though.
2ng Gen i5s were much better in terms of performance and in terms of power consumption.

i5-2520M is still a very capable processor and faster than quiet a few current mobile i3s

CPU boss is not a great for CPU comparisons, the I3 wins on that comparison in reality as it is faster and is a lower energy cpu (15w compared to 35W). Surely the I3 should not have the same score?

If it's faster on benchmarks and uses less energy or the same as something else it is generally a good guide.
If you want out and out performance just look at benchmarks (and the in built graphics on a laptop)

For those who know what they're speaking about and tailor the processor to their needs, performance. For the rest, image.
