Its a decent spec laptop with good features but really badly designed. Overheats when you put the screen past 90 degrees as anything further covers the cooling vents on the underside, so clearly a manufacturing flaw.
Nice spec for the sub £600 mark

Pretty good laptop, it does have a bit of a overheating problem when power management is set to maximum. Had one issue of a dead motherboard which HP swapped out and delivered in a few working days
I would have thought that the overheating would occur when power management is off?

Yeah sorry I mean when power options is set to maximum

My XPS 13 blew the wifi card within minutes of me turning it on. Terrible customer service from Dell with a widely reported issue, which they denied any knowledge of.

This is one of the issues I've read about.
Funny thing is that on their outlet site where they sell refurbished laptops, they're selling one XPS 13 model with exact same specifications except with an Intel wifi card for around £50 more than an identical model with a Dell wifi card. So apparently they not only acknowledge that their wifi cards are rubbish, but they're even charging customers more for the privilege of having a reliable wifi card!
Unbelievable.

Was looking to get this, but been reading endless online complaints about reliability issues with the touchscreen and overheating problems. Apparently HP support is poor too.
With the nightmares I've had with reliability on my current laptop (Lenovo), it's the key factor I'm considering with buying a new one. I've heard bad stories about HP, but was hoping this beautiful top-of-the-line range from HP would be better built...apparently not.
Was then looking at Dell XPS 13 line, which is even more highly reviewed by so-called "professional" tech reviewers, but again I see alot of reliability complaints.
How hard is it to make a reliable laptop honestly?? Especially for the ones costing almost a grand!

I suspect people will always post more negative reviews however there does seem to be problems on most of the big branch consumer ultrabooks.

I'm not sure there is a brand of ultrabook that is rock solid. Bootcamp on a macbook pro as close as you could come?

£900 and you only get a 960m. Whilst they've splurged out on an i7, 16gb of RAM, and a large SSD.
Once again HUKD shows how little it knows about pc gaming.
Very cold.

Reading reviews it appears the i7 is the bottleneck for the GPU. So on that basis you illustrate your own point marvellously.

Configure and buy here: http://mysn.co.uk/shop/xmg-p406-gaminglaptop.html
Good price, tho without Windows 10 which adds £79 onto the prices quoted and pushes it over the £1000 mark - the 965m is a good step up from the 960m tho so is worth considering whether you'd want to pay the extra £100 over the alienware

I don't think it's worth the potential hassle
very has been a bad experience for me. They have a false price and cancel your order after a few days, while you are waiting for the product.
Can't be used on Apple products, meaning you'll be stung with the difference when they bill you later on.
Very are efficient when it comes to catching out customers using codes they either aren't eligible for or shouldn't be using.
They're also very good at not telling you that you'd been charged for it either, whether its to your credit account or as a later bill.
Best advice is to use a credit card and then fake your own death once it's delivered.
Surely if you used a credit card and Dnt have a credit account with them and paid for it straight away and they delivered it to you at the discounted price that can't charge you later or bill you as its there error and mistake
Its not an error or a mistake though. They clearly state the code can't be used in the offer for apple products. You're essentially willingly violating their terms for personal gain at their expense.
They have your payment details regardless of paying by card or not. If they fail to get the extra expense from those payment details, you'll be sent a notice asking you to cough up. Failure to acknowledge such a notice would lead you into all sorts of legal bother.
So people should be asking themselves if its worth the hassle down the line for little to no gain. The only benefit of using Very is down to their flexible finance.
If you want to use the code and refuse to pay down the line then go for it. But when some big burly bloke knocks on the door to take your possessions to pay for the difference don't go crying about how Very are **** or whatever, they're a business like any other. People are entitled to their own opinions of course, but Very have come a long way compared to what they were like a few years back. They're actually a very good retailer for the most part now, and sometime have good offers on price wise too.
They have two opportunities to validate the code, when applying it or when processing your order. If validation is successful both times and the item is dispatched (which is when a contract is normally formed in e-commerce), that should be that. Otherwise this kind of behavior potentially opens up a can of worms in distance selling.
If I go to a shop with a voucher, when I use it, the cashier carefully checks its valid, and if it is, then the purchase is processed with the discount and that's the end of it. They don't come chasing after your money if it turned out it wasn't applicable. Its just ludicrous.
Well for what it's worth I currently have an Apple MacBook Pro in my possession and have paid a lot less than expected. I guess it remains to be seen if they will attempt to charge me but so far so bloody good :)

I nevertheless did not want a brick during attempt of bios update and did a return.
Received PP email of main refund fedays ago.
Did not request for recompense. Didnt think it worth hassle.
That was a mistake because updating the bios is very easy and simple thing to do, you just returned a bargain laptop, you won't get a new laptop with those spec's at that price.


​Agree with you it was a bargain laptop.
However, usability wise, I struggled with size of screen and I needed a large HD ie a desktop replacement.
There were other factors... and would have many wires connected and bits plugged in which would not be what this laptop was aimed for ie portability.
Also, Very as a company, I didn't want to deal with.
Calculated install of 500gb ssd, then 1tb sshd...
Cheers for all the encouragement though.
I know there will be better deals along someday...
Upgraded to a 500gb Samsung 850 Evo SSD, no issues. Cloned drive and put the 120gb in an enclosure to use as an external ssd 8)

Is anybody else's SD card slot not picking up cards? I've tried to install the driver from the link below but still not working. Definitely not the SD card as I've tried it in another laptop.http://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/500-Series/500s-13isk/80Q2/002XUK/downloads/DS105024
​Hows it going on this as I still also have same problem.
What options available here?
Get Very to replace unit as not fit for purpose within 30days.
Or the Lenovo TechSupport route?
Still had issues with reading cards. Tried 3 cards (a Kingston and two Sandisks) and with all of them I had to lift them up slightly for the reader to detect but as soon as I let go it stopped working.
Spoke to Very and explained the problem and arranged a return with them. It's booked in their system to expect it. I've not asked for a replacement as chances are it will have the same issues but I might contact them again to request an exchange. They said after 30 days, you would have to contact Lenovo for support.
Update the bios (6 mb) that will sort out the problem. http://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/500-Series/500s-13isk/80Q2/002XUK?tabName=Downloads&linkTrack=Mast:SubNav:Support:Drivers%20and%20Software|Drivers%20and%20Software&beta=false

Why do companies insist on tiny SSD drives? The raw price difference between a 128GB and a 256GB is maybe £20.
And even 256GB is small.
Because they make huge mark up on charging a lot more for bigger solid state drives. Dell is a good example of this. The premium for buying a solid state drive in a Dell laptop is, IMPO, ludicrous.
Most companies dont do upgrades though to bigger sizes in laptops.
My HP Envy i7 came with the biggest hard drive they did - 256GB - so at some point i'm going to end up pulling it apart to put a bigger drive in.
Agree totally RE: Dell - my Alienware 13 would have cost two fortunes to get a large SSD in, so i just fitted one later and used the 1TB HD elsewhere. 8)
Actually, likewise with the RAM in the Alienware - i upgraded to 16GB and sold the 8GB on for a fraction of the price Dell were looking
​Why would you want to put a larger drive in. Personally I'd put a smaller drive in to encourage people to back their data up more often. Don't use most of data we store on drive. so more sensible to only leave on what absolutely need and back the rest up to an external drive. better being safe than sorry

So with 128GB, after windows O/S space, temp space and restore space, you're probably left with 80-90GB?

Then you install a few apps. Office, antivirus, etc.

And what about your collection of Steam games? Not all games are graphic intensive.

Or your OneDrive? Folders you want to access offline are copied to your C: Drive

A few movies on there?

Music Library?

And BACKUP means "take a copy of". Theres that little space free you cant do that - you'd have to MOVE your files to another drive which means accessibility problems.

I'll be honest with you - its a good 10-15 years since i had a laptop that came with 80-90GB free space.

I dont call that progress. Do you?

Given prices, theres no reason at for the absolute min not to be 256GB SSD and the standard to be 512GB

Had Asus Zenbook, it was faulty and believe me Asus and Currys customer service is extremely appalling. Even under 5 months, I am having problems with laptop and customer services both. Genuine advice don't buy Asus. With this price go for Toshiba or HP.
Whilst the CPU is 2 years old, it's impossible to tell how old these laptops are in terms of usage. Amazon are still selling laptops with 4th gen processors which are listed as 'new'.
4th generation processor, that means it was at least 2 years old.

Perhaps not the cheapest they've been, but close - I paid £599 after cash back for this model at Christmas from Amazon. Great laptop, highly recommended. Touch screen is brilliant even on desktop Windows 10 (thought I'd never use it before purchase) and screen resolution is phenomenal!
Very tempting. I was looking at the daily deal for a while but decided it's far too small.
I think I'll bite due to the size and larger SSD.

I dont know much about the m series, but im looking for a laptop that would easily run matlab, cad, solidworks etc while being light to take to uni(45 min commute), would anyone recommend this laptop?
I'd steer clear of the 4.5w "core M" processors tbh.
Basically they burst into a super-fast processor mode for about 5-10 seconds, then drop back to a low-power state to avoid overheating. Great for booting up really quickly, opening programs quickly etc - It gives laptops really long battery life and/or means they can be made super thin/light - But they really aren't designed for software which requires prolonged processor power.
Given your needs, I think you'll regret not going for something with a 15w processor (i3, i5, i7)
The i5 surface pro 4 + keyboard would be a decent fit for you if you can stretch to that price (£950). It was on offer at Microsoft store/John Lewis for about £750 recently - I expect they will be on offer again within the next few months if you can wait.
I probably will wait given that exams are soon and after that i have a 3 month holiday, so there's really no rush tbh. i also have an i7 laptop at home, just its too heavy to take. thanks for the help, i havent kept up with processors etc since the ix-4xxx series, and now we're on 6 so youre help was appreciated :)

Last time I mentioned that 4th gen (4xxx series) were outdated and you should be looking to 6th gen Skylake, I got told I didn't know what I was talking about, but performance hasn't changed a great deal, in fact, not lot since Sandy Bridge, it seems to be mostly about improving power consumption, efficiency and GPU performance.

Core M is very interesting but can be quite niche, so as others say if you need sustained power, don't get a Core M, get an 'i-class' processor instead. It's fine for general purpose use (not specialist, performance apps).

Also worth noting this is 5th gen Broadwell, not 6th gen Skylake which might account for the keen price as it's technically EOL.
Don't forget that it also includes the best selling feature: "Remote Login from China".

And in case some shady entity tried to remove that, BAM:

I would check the recommended spec for CAD. I find single core performance is more important. Matlab doesnt need too much. If you are looking at using FEA or CFD i would suggest SSD.

heat added. best price around for such a thin laptop with good specs.

am I missing something here?? I bought Hubby a brand spanking new Acer laptop i5 8gb memory and 1tb HD. It cost me £429 so how can a refurb with smaller screen but same specs be considered a deal when its more money than that? I'm not being contentious as I know very little about computing just curious as to why

​i paid full £650. worth every penny. I'll tell you why compared to your husband's. 1) i5 - this is the latest generation with a slightly faster graphics chip. 2) IPS screen. for me massive difference. 3) QHD+ amazing resolution and crystal clear screen 4) SSD - FASTER 5) Form factor.. this thing is slimmer than an MacAir 6) Lighter 7) I liked the sleek design 7) I paid more but it was a hell of a lot cheaper than my Mac Air, better than a Mac Pro and alot cheaper than a Mac Pro Retina. only drawback is battery life.


Agreed with battery life. Just a tip for you, some posted that you can turn the fan off from running constantly, that should give you a few extra hours.

Thanks for this tip. I am not so updated with hardware specs and would have been taken in by this "dedicated graphics" bit.
Any recommendations for what I should look for in a graphic cards to do 4k video editing? Budget is around £650 to £800 max

Hot for the lower specced machine.
For the higher specced - A 920m is taking the **** and is literally just banged in there so they can stamp "dedicated graphics card" all over marketing material.
Just ordered the cheaper version - actually roughly what I was looking for and a good price. ONLY PROBLEM is that it's red, but it can be overlooked

Still nothing to beat the Dell Inspiron 15-7559 at the moment. "Open box" type offers on amazon for not much more and it's a vastly better laptop.

Well except that the Dell would be 15 inch, and where would you get it for £566?

Really good machine. There is only one thing I'm reluctant to buy and it is the battery life. For portable machines it should be something crucial. Unfortunately it is poor in this case.
But it's a powerful processor. You need to compromise somewhere.
Nice to see it's got an anti-glare screen. Sick of the shiny ones. Doesn't have a lighted keyboard though.
The 15-7559 has a full i7-6700HQ, 960M (4GB) and 8GB ram. It's missing an SSD but it's a trivial addition.
Not sure why you're telling me this - I was only commenting on the battery life.

4gb ram may not be enough. Can't be upgraded and future OS upgrades will suck the hell out of 4gb
True but I've got a 4GB Macbook Air 11 inch 2012 and I can even run VMs on it and still use the main mac OS fine. The decent (comparative) i5 and the very fast SSD make up for less RAM quite a lot. This model has an even faster SSD too. My biggest thing is if 128GB is enough! I've got the 256GB model. I think for 99% of users as Mac OS only takes about 10GB it probably is though. To backup your argument though Mac OS hasn't really changed much for a while in terms of RAM demands but with most of the new models packing 8GB as standard (even Macbook) I agree that 4GB might not be enough very soon.
Thanks for the one sensible post in a sea of dislikes.
As a PC user all my life, will I notice such a shock if I buy a Macbook?
I like the build quality and aesthetics compared to most PCs, I use a Thinkpad for work and Dell XPS at home. I don't mind PCs but it doesn't have the long lasting build quiality.
I went in stages. When I bought my iMac I was running mainly windows on it (for specialist forensic software) but after finished that I found that the fusion drive only works on Mac OS. It does take some getting used to in terms of commands but I could never go back to windows now. The computers you mention are more comparable to the Macbook Pro to be honest. I'm not sure an Air will replace your XPS unless you spec it out and then it becomes nearly the same price as the Macbook Pro retina. The main thing is that you will get a PC that just works straight away and hardly ever crashes with Mac OS without installing constant updates etc. I love my Air the most out of all my macs but I think the base model is amazing for travelling or as a 2nd machine. It will take some getting used to but I would 100% say you won't regret buying a Mac. For you I would advise waiting until the new Macbook Pro comes out if your going to use it as your main machine. This will drive the price of existing retina MBP and even the new air down . I had an XPS for work for about 3 months (this was a few years ago) and I much preferred the build quality and keyboard of my MBA. Even more weird was that for a SSD model it made noise every time i used it! If you do want to buy now I would say get the refurbished one with 8GB direct from Apple or actually buy the Macbook 2015 from KRCS at £749 (if you can live with 1 port and not being too powerful) as these will probably hold their value a bit better for resale if you decide to buy MBP. The Air is my favourite bit of tech I own but not 100% sure it is right for you being an XPS user. I think you might miss the high resolution screen. Hope this long answer helps rather then confuses!
Cheers for that. Definitely helps a lot.
I would definitely aim towards a MBP instead of the air. I also keep my laptop till its pretty much dead. Forgot to mention I bought the XPS back in 2010! The battery was the first thing that gave up, which I replaced with an ebay generic. Work's ok so far.But it's definitely starting to slow down and I can feel it will let go soon.
I will keep my eyes peeled for future MBP deals instead. Thank you!

One of the key reason I bought and Air in 2012 was that the 11 inch had 9 hour and the 13 inch had 12 hour thanks to Mac OS and Haswell. Back then nothing could touch that combination and especially with portability of the Air. Things have changed a lot as there are loads of good ultrabooks, but in real world heavy usage i used to get about 6 hours and still probably get nearly that now on my 11 MBA. I think whatever you go for the biggest difference from 2012 onwards is battery life. For all people slate the MBA screen they forget that a big reason Apple keep it is for that 9 and 12 hour battery life. Like I said for you I'd wait but you'll notice a massive difference from your laptop to any new post Haswell laptop.

I agree it's not a bad price for a 13inch and I've been looking at 13 and 14 inch laptops for a week or so for my flatmate. She bought a 14inch Asus in the end, 2gb ram but 500gb hdd, if she gets brave I'll open it up and add more ram. £14 less too.
My only with issue with the HP Steam is the RAM and HDD, the HDD will cause problems going forward, no biggie it can be replaced, but the RAM can't, and after 20 years of Windows experience I get the feeling 2gb models are competitively priced for a reason.
This has a soldered eMMc and can't be replaced as I bought a refurbished one from Argo ebay a while ago for £119.
Came in perfect condition. Refurbished ones are available at Laptops Direct for £130 but I've never bought from them before.
Cheers senor, good info.
I get really annoyed by all these underspec laptops...it's incredibly irresponsible to allow them to be sold when they are underpowered almost out of the box..
Especially when you take the changing landscape of browser requirements into consideration, something that has killed pretty much all old laptops and made my life providing computers to those without much tougher.
Especially Windows OS gets slower with more updates over time and virus and internet firewall..

Need to get one for my mum to replace an ageing Pentium dual core Inspiron R17 (think it has a T4400).
This laptop was on my list but for the reasons I posted above I didn't get it.
I got my flatmate this and she's happy enough, though for me the rim around the screen is much bigger than I thought, as is the mousepad.
Thanks for the reply. The one thing that concerns me with the one you've linked to is that the N2840 benchmarks at 1053, whereas the other one has an N3540 that's nearly double the score at 1970. I know it's a synthetic benchmark, but coupled with the eMMC, the e402ma seems a better buy to me?
I gave up on benchmarks in 2009 when I couldn't afford to keep up.

I just wanted to make a hardware point, I guess from your perspective it could be an issue.
I think they're both crappy, ha, and wouldn't buy either for myself. But then RAM and HDD are important to me in order to keep my laptops running for ages.

My flatmate thinks a free phone upgrade doesn't mean she has to sign a new contract and they just hand her a better phone.....she can afford to wait a second for something to happen....that was a bizarre 5 minute conversation she still thinks I'm wrong about....sigh....what goes on in peoples heads.

Had this laptop (i7, £800) for a couple of weeks, key takeaways:
* keyboard is very good, responsiveness and spacing are both first class.
* battery life is obviously nowhere near the ten hours advertised but then surely you weren't gullible enough to believe that anyway?
* trackpad is hit and miss. scrolling and one touch actions are passable but i've been really let down by right click functionality. Two finger clicks work only half of the time unless you make a conscious, forced decision to use both fingers.
* screen resolution: as stated above, many third party apps are simply not compatible with a UHD screen resulting in tiny font sizes and barely legible interfaces. very frustrating.
* overheating: not had the machine for long and yet ive already experienced problems on this front.
* design: beautiful looking machine, very lightweight.
Overall: I'm in two minds as to whether or not I want to take this machine back and get a Macbook Pro in its place. Will post another review in another couple weeks time depending on my experience.

I must admit the service from Acer is the best I have ever received from any electrical manufacturer.
My es1 with the faulty touchpad was collected on Tuesday and within 48hrs it was repaired and delivered back to my home.
They put a new touchpad in it which seems to have fixed the problem and as long as it remains working I'll be very happy.
My only concern is it took about 4 weeks use before the last touchpad went faulty and the amount of people who have this problem it may well reoccur.
I thought you said it was a piece of crap?
It still is a crap laptop and for sale if you want to buy it.

For second hand apple rubbish?

You are joking right.

This place is about deals, not if you think something is worth the original price or not. So saving a few hundred pounds on a refurbished device is not a deal then?

When you say second hand it really shows you have no clue about Apple refurbs. - technically they 'are' used, but often they are devices returned under the 14 refund policy Apple have - they are tested, cleaned, repaired(if required) and refreshed.

There's only one £2.99 cover left: Kokeshi 14"-15.4".
Surprised at that comment as I can be quite sensitive to chemical-y smells and mine was absolutely fine? Maybe you should have emailed the seller.
Hot! Bought one more than a month ago. The smell is quite unpleasant at first but disappeared in a few days so hopefully not a big deal.
Got mine today. Considering my only neoprene case was a Poundland one for my NC10...it's a lovely cover and well-made. Even the way it's packaged is nice (not that it really matters as it's the case you're using).

I've got my Lenovo 12.1" X200 in the Pattern 12"-13.3 cover. I needed the extra inch or so to accomodate the 9-cell battery I bought, which sticks out the back a little!

Nobody is arguing about Lion since that is compatible with this notebook. Lion only requires a 64 bit cpu since all the OS applications (incl. Finder) are 64 bit. Lion has a 32 bit kernel so will boot with 32 bit kexts. Mountain Lion is pure 64 bit only and that is why it cannot run on this notebook.

Cool thanks for that.
Nobody is arguing about Lion since that is compatible with this notebook. Lion only requires a 64 bit cpu since all the OS applications (incl. Finder) are 64 bit.

The version that has almost been made to work is the Macbook 3,1, which followed mine. That had the Intel X3100 integrated graphics. An incomplete 64 bit set of drivers shipped with Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and some have tried to play around with patching those.

I don't think anyone mentioned it not running Snow leopard as it even runs on 32bit single core cpus iirc.

Re-read his/her post. Why haven't you commented on Lion?
