Shame it's a TN panel and not an IPS one, otherwise a rather fine deal.
Good spec, very tempted. Thanks for posting

are these noisey, fan constantly going?
I bought the E5430 which has the same cpu. The fan is noticeable when it's on. What I noticed was after upgrading the BIOS to the latest version that the fan would only spin up once it reached a certain temperature. So I noticed the fan less. It's silent when browsing and under light loads. Although I have noticed sometimes its spins up and down for a short period even when under those conditions. But overall definitely much less after the BIOS upgrade.
There are some reports on the internet that when these were first released that the fan was noisy, and hence some changed were made to the BIOS to tackle the issue.
Although they have the same CPU, the E6 series will probably have a different cooling solution than the E5 series

Yup, the 320GB drive is OOS, so the next one up is 500GB and increases the price.

I purchased one of these a few months back, different seller though, but a bit more expensive I think.
Upgraded RAM to 16gb and replaced HDD with a 240GB SSD and it fly's along.
It also makes a really great hackintosh and runs the very latest OSX without issue, all you need to do I think is replace the wifi card which cost me about £8, again on email. It's also one of the easier hackintosh installations.
Highly recommended for the money, cracking machine now running OSX.
Are you running el capitan? Im curious :). Do you have the link of the tut? and the Wifi nic please. Is it this one by any chance?http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300893674625?clk_rvr_id=1068347271583&rmvSB=true
I'll check the card later tonight if I get time.
If you google compatible wifi cards you'll find loads of list of cards that will work out of the box.
Here's the guide I followedhttp://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/8506-dell-latitude-inspiron-el-capitan-clover-guide/#entry54621
I had issues when I let it self update to El Capitan 10.11.4 and had to update the AppleHDA_IDT.kext but apart from that it was pretty easy. It's all in the thread if you read it through.

Agree with above comment. At this price you should expect at least 960M.
Really? Where have you seen a £550 Skylake Core I5 laptop with 960M graphics?
Do your homework and check online. I paid £750 for i7 6700HQ with 970M 6GB 2 months ago so a lot stronger specs for only £200 more (and yes, laptop was new, from big online retailer)

*ONLY* £200 more? That's more than a third extra! But you said you would expect 960M AT THIS PRICE! So where is this £550 Skylake I5 laptop with 960M? I've done my homework and checked online - it doesn't exist!

This machine has the lower specification DDR3 card, so take the figures on that page with a pinch of salt as it's aggregated from the faster DDR5 version and the DDR3 version. If I was you I'd take about 10% off the FPS figures quoted and you'll likely achieve that figure.

I got excited when i saw the prices of the 6500K and then realised it didn't include tax and shipping and got sad
The title should say £156.62 - cost including shipment. Then will come the tax bill...
I'd rather buy it from Amazon for £188.52 - with free shipment, UK warranty, returns etc.

A few things you've forgotten to mention in the price. Shipping costs and import tax! http://i64.tinypic.com/wl5374.png
So no, it don't save, time you get it from a UK company! Some place like SCAN or Ebuyer, and you'll get it within the next few days and be able to deal with a UK company!
Fair enough, I didn't think about import taxes and customs. I'll remove the deal now.

OK here's confession time, a year or so ago I bought 3 of these deals, similar spec to yours but not as good

only then - you'll be pained to hear - HP were offering 2 cashbacks - the trade in + another one worth about £150

it meant the machines cost not much different to £150, then TCB & Amex points...

I kept 2 for my kids & made some moolah on the other
Had cashback for HP deals twice now. HP paid out

Was interested in this deal, but Win 10 free upgrade from Win 7 runs out in 2 days - probably not enough time now to receive delivery and upgrade
On the spec it says:
Operating System Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Edition / Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Edition downgrade
Preinstalled OS Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Edition
Are they saying "Win 10 Pro 64-Bit Edition" as part of the Microsoft free upgrade?
No this is separate to that offer, this laptop comes with Windows 7 pre-installed and media for Windows 10 along with instructions on how to install it. Ironically there is no disc drive :)https://s31.postimg.org/wkdgwxa8b/win10hp.jpg

presumably (up until today) you could have upgraded to W10 for free - then sold the W10 installation media to a friend? does it come with a product key?

Worth it for £60 less than the i5? (at current prices)
Will use it for general internet, and maybe AutoCAD/Revit software for work.
That's £249 at Tesco Direct

Cheers for the heads up, hadn't looked on there.

I have to smile every time I see the refurbished bit in the title of items on here, whether it is a phone or laptop. Second hand is the word, refurbished my foot. how do you refurbish a laptop?. Repair is an option if it is faulty. Refurbished sounds better I guess. Now if they where all as new I might be a bit more convinced but the fact these items are graded, depending on condition tells me they are tested, in other words formatted and OS installed and just tested
Your comment let people think that it the same for all sellers which is completely untrue. ​Refurbished from Tesco or argos are not "used" as you seem to imply. They are returned from unhappy customers and they're fairly new
We are talking about reputable retailers though arent we, such as Argos, Tesco rather than chancers buying a pallet of used laptops and wiping them over with a damp cloth. Both Argos and Tesco sell laptops new so you have a fair chance of getting a decent one that is described as refurbished.

And with a price to match - try getting an i5 laptop off them and see what they charge.
I'm in two minds to return or not. It's a hassle for one and I think I need to pay the postage. Then what happens if the replacement is just as bad, or worse?

I've been testing and it works really well. For the price and the fact they offer a warranty, I still think they are just worth the money.

I went with the SSD option and I'm assuming its brand new replacement to the old hard drive. It's an Adata SP550. I ran AS SSD benchmark on it and compared it to my now very old first SSD, a Crucial M4, in my main Desktop PC and the Adata beats it on speed so I'm very pleased with that.

I've done a first run through on battery life. From 100% to when it turned ifself off, I got 2 hours 40 minutes. With just over one hour of movie playback from USB stick, web-browsing, benchmarking, installing programs, re-boots, etc.

That reminds me, I will have to run Recuva and see how thoroughly they have erased the old data. Not that I care personally since I am happy with the laptop I have, but it would prove interesting I'm sure.
M1sterDeeds
@zxzx, I don't think your rambling. I think its good to share any points/comments that we have with the individual laptops that we received. It will give people an idea of the kind of thing to expect if they order from this seller.
I just picked mine up too and in the process of playing around with it.
My early impressions are, for the money I'm satisfied so far. Mine isn't in the greatest condition but functionally seems good. I would have described mine as more Grade 3 than 2 according to their own criteria.
Mine has been 'cleaned' but its like a rush job. You can see the big streaks on the screen where they have wiped it down. Not a biggy for me cos I will do it, but its small things like this that would cost them nothing to do and leave a bigger impression to the customer.
2 of the rubber feet on the bottom are missing and there is lots of residue from sticky labels that they couldn't be bothered to remove. Not a biggy again as I will put some nail varnish remover on it.
There seems to be a screw missing on the bottom, but whatever it 'screws' down doesn't seem to affect things. I may leave it or see if they will send me one.
Mine appears to be repaired, like the chassis was moved into another case or something as the seams between them don't look good and flush, with lots of scuffs that don't seem like they would be there under normal wear.
On the plus side, mine seems to be the HD+ version with 1600 x 900 resolution. I also got a DVD drive with mine but haven't checked if its ROM or a writer.
The SSD supplied seems to be an Adata. Feels responsive but I will run some benchmarks later.
That's unfortunate, maybe you should message them and see if you get a better one (though I know I'd be annoyed at the hassle myself)

i5 aint exactly "fast". Tech from 2010!
So go on then, what do you do with your laptop that requires a faster processor?
I'm using a 2007 Dell D620 with a Core2Duo processor and 4gb RAM as we speak with a 120GB SSD fitted and its happily running Win10, Office 365 and i can watch movies and downloads on it, and surf the net on it.
I'm a video editor.
i5 will only suite web browsing, downloading movies etc. Will lag with gaming, with content creation, and with heavy multitasking.
There's a reason why this laptop is cheap, and it's not because Dell are in a good mood.
2GB ram is the absolute minimum to run windows 10 64bit, leaving a paltry 2gb for anything else you want to use, like word, like web browsing, like video playback etc.
Just want to use it to browse the web? Get a tablet instead.
I have 4 purpose built systems I built by the way.
So why are you even on this thread commenting on something that clearly doesnt suit your needs anyway?? Why does it even interest you?
I do heavy duty data analysis in Excel as part of my daytime job and this deal wouldnt suit it, but it doesnt mean i cant see the merits of it.
Uh huh, the reason they are cheap is because they are used and probably 3+ years old. Would you pay as much for a 3 year old car as you would a new one??
And an i5 WONT lag with gaming. Gaming is heavily dependent on the GRAPHICS card, not the processor. I'm surprised an "expert" such as yourself didnt know that. Put a heavy duty graphics card on the front of an i5 and it'll handle 98% of all games. I'd an Alienware 13 last year running an i5 and a GeForce 860M graphics card and it was great. And this ISNT a gaming laptop. It has not got the graphics card for it. It would be foolish to think otherwise.
4GB is MORE than enough for general use. I've this Core 2 Duo D620 with 4GB RAM on at the minute. I've 5 tabs open in Chrome, Excel 2016 open, Word 2016 open and on the fifth tab in Chrome, i'm running an HD movie clip on you tube.
CPU usage is sitting at between 33 and 39% and memory is sitting at 1.7GB used, and the machine is perfectly usable with no lag on the video or in moving between apps. And thats a **** 9 year old Core2Duo processor :rolleyes:
Why use a laptop instead of a tablet? Gee, well ever tried typing on a tablet? Or shifting between multiple tabs in Chrome? Or maybe doing a bit of spreadsheet work? Or typing an email? Maybe you poke your keyboard with one finger so a tablet is great for you, but most people prefer the convenience of a keyboard. And if they dont - get a tablet and ignore this thread because its not relevant.
Built four computers yourself? Woohoo! Your mum must be so proud!

I was going to comment myself but then saw you'd addressed everything! But as predicted here is the self-proclaimed IT expert who is a video editor AND has built 4 computers himself!

I'm sure they're aware that a 'professional' video editor probably has thousands of pounds at his disposal and therefore would not be considering a 3 year old laptop, that many people use GPU encode/transcode and that a broad statement such as 'i5 will lag' and suitable for basic web browsing doesn't ring true - better tell Intel and the public as i3, Celeron, Pentium and Atom are all obsolete. Let's ignore the fact that much of the time, i7 CPUs are the same silicon as an i5 with a slightly higher base clock, turbo and maybe 1MB more cache...
Can anyone recommend a cheap external cd drive to go with this laptop Windows 10?
ronray
I picked mine up today. I was initially a little disappointed when I saw the outside of the case because it had some scuffs. But I was surprised to find the screen and keyboard both looked virtually unused. On top of this the battery also seems pretty good. It's been running for about an hour and it's still reporting about 3 hours left. So overall I'm very happy.

Chances are the keyboard has been replaced at some point as they're easy to swap out, so its good its been done :)

RE: the outer case, check ebay as you could probably pick up a new one for a few £ and they' not hard to fit

2GB ram is the absolute minimum to run windows 10 64bit, leaving a paltry 2gb for anything else you want to use, like word, like web browsing, like video playback etc. Want to add plugins to chrome or firefox like flash, pdf viewers, silverlight? Adblocker? You'll just end up using virtual memory, which on a yesterday-tech mechanical hard drive is going to slow down even further.
Just want to use it to browse the web in internet explorer? Get a tablet and bluetooth keyboard instead, you'll have a much wider range of apps to suit low power devices.
I have 4 purpose built systems I built by the way.
And yet people constantly fail to understand why I still use Windows XP...
I use VideoReDo to edit videos on a Core2Duo with 3GB memory (and no pagefile) quite happily. And I can have Firefox and Chrome with lots of tabs open no problem. Have recently bought a couple of secondhand i5 (4th gen) laptops (total cost ~£230) and am working on getting XP running on them - the Toshiba L50t with a 120GB SSD absolutely flies. And apparently you can hack XP to removed the 3.5GB memory limit - not that I would condone such behaviour...
XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, so you won't be protected against any OS exploits your virus checker doesn't catch.
True, but then I am pretty careful. I have multiple machines, all with ZoneAlarm firewall and Avast anti-virus; I regularly do a fresh re-install of the operating system; on my main machine I only browse to reputable sites as well as using several browsers, with one specifically restricted for secure online activities (eg online banking). If you act like an idiot, then maybe you do need all the constant updates from Microsoft to prevent your machine being compromised, but if you're sensible you can take full advantage of the improved performance you get from using a lighter-weight O/S like XP pretty safely.
Putting a 3rd party between your machine's OS and malware protection does not in any reality make it more protected.

Sorry, you'll have to explain that statement a bit more.

6 year warranty direct from Apple? please explain how
my macbook pro retina 2013 screen has stop working recently. apple replaced for me for free. i ask why they said its because i bought the laptop from apple store. and it has 6 years warranty.http://www.apple.com/uk/legal/statutory-warranty/
That link shows you have 6 years to claim for an inherent fault, i.e the fault was present on the day it was purchased and not due to wear and tear, this does not constitute a 6 year warranty and I'm surprised an Apple employee would suggest this.

What he is saying is incorrect. You get, from Apple, a limited warranty of 1 year which can be extended to 3 years for a fee. The six year period is the limitation period for every single simple contract, which includes all sales contracts (i.e. with any retailer or individual or company etc.) - this means you can bring an action against a party in breach of a contract for up to 6 years after the agreement is made. In relation to sales contracts, the reason you might wish to do this would be on the basis of one of the terms implied by the Consumer Rights Act 2015, which sets certain standards as to quality of the product as it is delivered. Limited warranties deal with deflects that transpire after delivery.
Yes but it is upto you to PROVE the fault was inherent when you urchased the device which means hiring a "professional" who will vouch for it. Even in that event Apple can give their "expert's" opinion agianst this and then you'd at the mercy of a judge. Do you really want to put up with that?


You have just described the nature of an adversarial legal system.

Incidentally, for the first 6 months following purchase the burden of proof falls upon the manufacturer/retailer to show that it was not so.

And to directly answer you: it depends on your competency to deal with legal matters. The lay person will struggle. It all depends upon the issue as well! Some will be relatively easy to deal with. Not to mention that most retailers will settle at the first sign of legal action- it's not great PR ;)

Er, link now leads to cost of £399, not quite the deal as posted. Maybe time to expire..?
I ordered one of these and just been updating it. However it is constantly shutting down and is extremely hot to touch near the power supply. I guess it will be going back.

There's every chance that an ex corporate machine doesn't get moved much. I've maybe taken my HP640 to three or four meetings, and taken it home a similar number of times - the rest of the time it just lives on a docking station. Hence the keyboard/trackpad also remain unused.

Yeah, my experience is that generally the ex-business ultraportables are in excellent condition. I think those that get the bigger ThinkPads tend to use them as a primary computer, but an ultraportable is generally for those who don't want the weight (and therefore can't justify the weight; probably not mission critical).

I've bought maybe three X200 (two girlfriends -- at different times -- and myself), one X60, two X61s, and my current X230. I also frequent eBay for ThinkPads and my experience is that you're 100% right.

Spend £20 extra and get this fom same placehttp://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/371548142477?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&var=640570703724&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
Almost twice the grunt. 3rd gen. Damn good price, adding this seller to my favs list. and just ordered a 5th gen for £229! bargains
Actually, with my config of 120GB SSD and WIn 10 installed the difference between the 2 is only £5 so a real no brainer. Bigger screen and newer processor was the clincher and it's going to be a couch surf machine so no issues with the extra weight. Thanks for spotting this one.
Grab an 120gb ssd off ebay and put the HDD that comes with this in the optical drive bay with a £5 caddy. You can just pop it in and out when you need to use an optical drive. Its what i did, i think ive used my optical drive once in 5 years lol
As you can see above, I bought the Dell E5430 from the same seller. It's classed as grade B but I promise you this thing is as pristine as you can get! I could be picky and say I can see where the company asset sticker used to be but that's it, it really does like it's unused!
I've only run a quick test but it boots fast, runs up a few apps, Chrome, etc in a split second and teask manager is reporting the processor is not even running at full speed.
This may only be a single sample but I can't fault the seller here, as others on here have - next day delivery and a top quality, well built, decent spec laptop with SSD and running Win10 (license sticker underneath too!). All for £135! It makes a mockery of some of the new laptop deals you see on here.

My 5th gen arrived too today, packaged well and immaculate too. Says they are an official Microsoft distributor on the receipt too. Next cheapest i could find online was £70 more refurb. Or £140 more new lol.

Got the 7140 and love it :)
Take my advice if you want the mobile keyboard with battery in ........ go for the Nordic one , its qwerty and the other odd keys just buy some stickers from ebay ..................got my new Nordic one £20 on ebay and now have 16 hours plus battery life
I've had the 4300y 8gb/256gb version (7139 vpro i believe) and my advice is to stay away from this tablet.

The 7130 series has serious throttling and power management issues, while on paper it has/had amazing specs the power limiter will not allow you to use it, so it's no where near as snappy or power you'd expect the i5 to be.

I was able to fix this following a guide online which allows you to override the power limiter which is set to something stupid like 6w default with no way to up it by default, when it turbos it needs around 12w to utilise the power of the processor. It also hard throttled the cpu at a stupidly low temperature, which you'd reach just browsing or watching a youtube video.

The trouble with the fix is that you don't just do it then forget about it and have a decent tablet, every time you charge the tablet or dock it with the keyboard etc you have to turn the tablet off in sleep mode, wait a few seconds then turn it on and reapply all the changes, which as you can imagine becomes annoying after a very short period of time.

I think the 7140 series fixed this, they upgraded the design and included loads of copper heat sinks on the back cover for heat dissipation, and upped the power limiter. But i've lost faith in Dell and their tablets, aside from the ridiculous design flaw that made it as slow as the atom version, i had so many issues with the wifi card installed in it also.
Looks like this is the only cheap UK Hard keyboard on Ebay right now. These are rarer then hens teeth!

I've got a Venue 11 Pro (7130) i3-4020Y from here which I'm pretty happy with. It's nicely built, nice screen and smooth running. With the keyboard/battery addon it makes a nice little touchscreen laptop.

My advice is go for the i3 version I have, Y series processors are power limited, so they can burst at their full clock rate, but for sustained use they throttle down to a set wattage, at which point I see little benefit in having the i5.

Mine runs windows very smoothly, plays any video I've tried on it and is even happy with some of my modest steam games like Civ V and The Walking Dead.
Hot, thanks for sharing OP :D

You can update the processor. Ok that's interesting, how much was the i7?
there aren't a lot of i7 processors that you can use. However there is a couple of quad cores that would make this a very respectable machine. I haven't seen them though for under a hundred quid add yet.
also for anyone buying one of these without a drive, make sure you get the hd adapter plug do that you can use a standard drive. otherwise you area looking at another few quid to get one - and delivery time.

I bought a grade B 2570p with 4g/320gig via a posting on here for 139 a few weeks ago. I was so impressed with the machine that I bid on another grade B machine last week and got it for 80 quid.

A 2570p for 80? Where from?

Just an update. My order of this arrived today but it was fitted with a 550w psu and not the 650 as advertised on the website. There's not a huge amount of difference in it though and the overall power consumption of these parts should mean the corsair can handle them fine. I called sales team who have agreed to rectify their listing and refunded me the difference between the two models.
Good to know. Just out of interest, how loud is the system, I hear that the corsair h45 can be a bit noisy? Cheers.
The CPU fan is quiet but the case fans are extremely loud. I have had to order new ones.

good price for the boxed version but I saved £5 and got the unboxed version as I was using a noctua with it.

cant imagine many people buying this would want to use the stock cooler so might as well spend £5 on faster ram or anything other than a box and cooler you will never use.


The retail version doesn't come with a cooler anyway. Only advantage is a 3 year warranty as opposed to the 1 year you get unboxed.
Well said, I was deceived by an eBay seller from whom I bought an i7 6700k claiming to be a never used 6700k i7, it didn't work at all, it was a hassle sending motherboard and memory back all to test and return. Intel surprised me with their service, I put the processor serial number and raised 3 year warranty claim, call came from Intel support, send dhl to pick up faulty one on Tuesday to send to Netherlands, new replacement arrived on Friday. They never asked me where did I purchase from, only thing they asked me was, was it in a retail box?

Yup only 1 year for you boyo haha 5 quid for 2 more years... silly silly boy
£5 for a warranty on something that basically doesn't break.
Warranty also voided by overclocking.
Warranty is not voided by overclocking as it is a 'K' CPU which has a unlocked multiplier, they are marketed as overclockers, it is voltage that kills CPU's which in turn leads to overheating, as said though impossible to tell it's been killed by a bad voltage bump.
They're sold unlocked but the warranty still doesn't cover overclocking.

People going to be buying extended warranty's on their other pc components?

Warhammer is incredible. Best Total War game in my view. I'm sure in a few months with mods it will be even better

Nice... I have a MSI Mortar and it is a good job. Unfortunately I bought mine in April so not redeemable against this promo :'( I got jack sod-all for registering mine (aside from "exclusive" 3 month access to WTF which is of no use...)

Quite disappointed, It just says it not available any more when I was trying to place an order.


I managed to buy an X1 Carbon laptop which I feel I don't need any more. It's still packed in original and am happy to offer it for the same price I got it, if your interested.

​My warranty ends in 2018 so had to email them, you may want to check yours. The battery is draining really quick to maybe because it has been in storage so long. How is yours ? And what do you think of the laptop?
The manufacturing date on mine was 2015-12-15 and had Windows 7 on it, not win 10. my warranty ends in 950 days.

£300 + add the change you save from the £380 budget to add 4gb more ram and an extra capacity hard drive and you will come away with more power for less money

There have been vastly better deals posted recently than this.
500 to 600 quid for them specs where you looking, in the catalogues i got my laptop a year ago with the same specs but with a ssd harddrive and better graphics card and touch screen for 400 quid and there was lots in that price range fir 400 quid

Most laptops are at that resolution, and getting full HD on 16" would make things quite small.
It's perfect for home use and will last for a long time as the hardware is very capable. If you're looking to watch HD content and game on it, then you're best off with something else.

Most phones are a higher resolution than this on a much smaller screen.
Having moved to a full HD laptop a year ago I could never go back.

Ew, refurb, 1366x768 TN display, and HDD. I'd say that unless someone specifically needs the extra CPU power and RAM (in which case get a desktop or up your budget, "performance, mobility, cheap, pick 2") they'd be better served by an Asus Transformer Book Chi T300 or something like that since you gain an SSD and a nicer display which are so much more important for day to day use. Convertibles massacred low end laptop sales.

It's amazing what you can do with some YouTube and a brain


You could not build this computer to its specs including an operating system for much cheaper than £799. You'd still be spending £700+ and end up with less USB sockets and a worse case


​if you look below someone has built a very similar system for less. Now stop crying like a girl it's making me uncomfortable


Why do you keep coming back to my post? You are literally going out of your way to check all the comments lol. You know full well that person's build does not include all the components of the pc in my post and uses a pretty awful case. Everyone knows including myself that my post is not the most amazing pc deal ever, but for someone looking for a pc of those specs that can't be bothered to build it themselves it's a decent price. I'm not going to argue with you any more...your previous defensive and aggressive reply says everything about you as a person.

​Hahahahaha USB ports that's your argument. Silly seasons started in here. It isn't an amazing deal and the look of the case is subjective.

For the OS simply buy that Windows 10 key for £10 that is on the front page.

This one.
This or MSI Z170-A PRO?
I have an MSI Z97 Gaming 3 and it's a cracking board, it was one of the few that still offers 2 PCI slots (yep, I still use pci cards, gasp), but also had more or less all the other features I was looking for (m.2, isolated audio circuitry, etc.). It's good to see they've done the same here for the new gen socket.

Hot deal :)

Good deal, although I find it rather amusing they went to the effort of having a PS/2 port on a 2015 motherboard!

Can't really understand why you would have opted for that on any level. The first thing I do (regardless of how clean an install looks) is to do a clean install.You live and learn :)

Arrived today. Excellent condition. Couldn't tell it was used.
Love it. Bigger than expected which is good! Only annoying thing is no caps light? Very minor. Touch pad a little small too but to be expected on such a small laptop.
Overall very happy for the money at the money. Will use it properly soon.

Congratulations!

Mine's pretty much died on me. :( Touchpad and Trackpoint don't work because the drivers have gotten corrupted.

Via flubit the i5 6600k came up as £179 for me. Not the cheapest but it's acceptable. Although I am still in a huge dilema whether to go for tie i7 6700k or the i5 6600k. Diminishing returns...
Most of these processors are pretty great though, just this 6500 makes it one of the very fastest consumer CPUs around.
I have an i7 6700k and justified it by knowing I'll keep it for several years, but I would hardly be upset if I had a 6600k and overclocked it. Very very fast CPU and will be good for many many years.
If you are willing to overclock and accept those risks, then the 6600k is probably the best choice for the high end in terms of bang per buck. The i7 6700k is just for the greedy people :p
It won't last as long if you overclock it.

How long do you expect/need useful life? I have a Bloomfield system that has run nearly 8 years at 1.35v since the day it has turned on. That's >200w. And my it's had a hammering of use. The platform is basically obsolete but the system just keeps on breathing. Still gives many AMD parts a bloody nose on gaming benchmarks to this day too in its overclocked state....

Yoga pro 3 is around 1.2kg - very very light. Screen is amazing, but my two had some light bleed (more than my yoga pro 2 and xps 13).
The processor does struggle, especially if you have a number of tabs open. I ordered 2 Yoga Pro 3's via Amazon warehouse but they are both going back today
Core M on a 3200x1800 sounds crazy to me but it depends what you want I guess :D

Mind the azerty keyboard. Average specs, nothing hot here for me, and hhd instead ssd, i recently got a yoga pro 3 with 3200x1800 screen and ssd (no dedicated graphics but i assume 940m is nothing special anyway) and i paid for the yoga 380 on amazon warehouse. This is no bargain:)
What's the cpu in the yoga pro 3? The 940m is a pretty good upgrade over intel on board graphics though if you don't do any gaming then yes this isn't a good deal.
Edit: From what I can find the Yoga pro 3 has a core m chip so won't be as powerful and it is 1.9kg vs 1.45kg
Ok then french keyboard and no ssd are still enough to put me off. Yoga also has a better screen and tablet mode. And surprise surprise, it does not weight 1.9kg but 2.26lb = 1.19kg
Yeah depends what you want really! Sorry I completely miss read the yoga specs lol I don't really think 3200x1800 is needed at this size of screen and I have a tablet so don't care much for those features :P not having an SSD sucks but I feel I can always upgrade it if I want one but yeah it depends what you want/use it for to how good the deal is really and if you can deal with a foreign keyboard
