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:http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lenovo-ideapad-510-i3-6100-u-4gb-ddr4-1tb-bag-wireless-mouse-2520864
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.

I agree. Dell should be fitting SSD's as standard by now.

Perhaps take out the optical drive and fit an SSD in there?

Just why the hell would I need DVD drive in 2016?
Play & rip CDs/DVDs.

If you got stuck in the previous decade I guess it makes sense. But even this not really as I would assume that ULV processors are mainly targeted at mobile devices, and I doubt you rip your DVD's on the go and for at-home use you get get a cheap external DVD

Good price.
Just why the hell would I need DVD drive in 2016?
Just HDMI 1.4 (no [email protected], just @30Hz) they could add thunderbolt.
2.35KG is a bit too much for me as well
I agree but this was the best deal at this price I could find right now

You're very welcome - just to be clear to everyone this isn't an issue just because you can't run Linux, this locks you out of being able to reinstall any operating system to your HDD - (I.E no Windows 7 no Windows 8 or Vista, it's either Windows 10 or NOTHING).

I'd never by a refurbished laptop, you never know where the previous owners hands have been, stats have shown there is more bad bacteria on laptops and phones than the average toilet.
Respectfully, do you ever go out and touch anything ?
I appreciate your question and the answer is yes however when I come back from somewhere I would wash my hands thoroughly as I would if I was eating out too and whenever I get the opportunity I would wash my hands where available. Clean my phone everyweek and don't let anyone use my laptop at uni and very rarely eat something someone has offered me unless its from a packet and yes it is very rude but I tend not to tell them why as it is a habit but I greatly appreciate their offer.

What do you recommend for higher res at this price?

I would probably consider something like a HP 250 G5 Intel i3 with the 1080p panel.

£330 laptops direct, less £19 if you take up their which? deal for the price of the £1 sub (£20 off over £200) and then cancel. So £311. Less RAM, smaller HDD yes, but better screen and better CPU makes it worth it. You can at least upgrade the former later on, you're stuck with the screen and inferior CPU on this.

I am sure there are a fair few other good deals about, I only saw the G5 one while browsing a bit earlier

But your missing the point, a i5 no matter what would not be able to handle games as good as this machine! Most of the time its the GPU that's running things when Ive been using it. Any computer with a SSD can do basic computing tasks your paying the extra to be able to play better games and use better software.

Is anyone else having problems with the right shift being really small and having an up key next to it?
Yes! Thought it was just me. I use the shift to capitalise the first letter of a word when required, and am hitting the wrong key constantly.

On case anyone was following this, I got an omen laptop from Hp directly in the end, including a omen mouse. Anyone with unidays can get discount, and I discovered asda benefits include Hp! So you get the same student area of the site. Ended up paying £750, so not too bad.
Funny because it's for my Bro, he has a brand new audi on finance, but littlewoods won't give more than £500! The credit score questions were poor, not even asking dates in properties, so I think that's the issue. Oh well, they lose custom and my search goes on

Back in stock but good luck. Just phoned them and they say I have a £500 credit limit as I'm a new customer so can't get it. And cannot increase that limit without buying items from them over time! Also mentioned a minimum £1400 spend to get the 25% deduction. I'll be going elsewhere!


​yeah they said they could raise me up to 900, weird as for very they've given me like 2000 I think !! and very don't include the interest in the value too...

This is the worst laptop ive ever had.

Have had for a few weeks. Windows 10 updates are a recipe for disaster.
The wifi always disables itself.
Infact its decided it doesnt even have wifi on it and after crashing and trying to recover has a critical error and wont start up. Trying one key recovery to restore to factory settings then sending it back. Cant get anything done on it and cant even check an email without problems.
That's it. Always blame the laptop.

one this to be aware on this is that the touch pad doesn't work with gestures.

so no two finger scrolling, which I feel is a must nowadays if you use the touch pad
Or if you prefer, you can spend an extra 50p and buy one at Curry's instore.

​Most the cheaper windows tablets have 2gb of ram and run basic stuff good enough. Just don't be expecting to do loads of video editing or playing the latest games in high graphics.

I upgraded an old machine from Win 7 to Win 10 which has 2GB RAM and it is so slow even for browsing and Office. TVCatchup has memory issues. I have Windows 10 with 4GB and 8GB machines and they are fine. I even found Win 8 was faster than Win 10 with 2GB RAM. I wondered whether 4GB is a minimum for a decent performance.


​I did the same with a 3gb laptop and it put it too its knees too. But I did a good clean out, deleted the installation files and stopped a bunch of things opening on start up and it has made it work a lot better. I think if it comes pre-installed I think it tends to run better.

Hello
If you have joined the party and installed the Windows 10 the anniversary update then 2GB is absolute minimum to run just the OS with out complicating it with extras, av software, tv watching etc.

May be this is why my videocard drivers suddenly keep crashing.

I like how they sell a version with 'NOT ACTIVATED WINDOWS 10 HOME ENGLISH EDITION'
(so basically an unlicensed pirated version which they don't quite have the courage to sell pre-cracked)
If you're going to criticise something/someone, at least know what you're talking about before using your fingers on the keyboard.
Anyone know what this means?
​yes, it's a legit chinese only version of windows on the device. look it up.
What's the legit chinese only version got to do with the unactivated English version I was talking about?
At least it has a usb, hdmi and a type c, perhaps they could teach Apple how to do that...

Any warranty?
Sold from a retailer in China, so pretty much any warranty you get isn't worth the paper (or email it's written on). You'll be required to send it back to China for any support, at your expense and if it's not tracked there's every possibility that the item being returned ends up 'lost in transit'. Gearbest and their ilk are great for low value items, anything more expensive, then stick with a UK or European based company because the aftersales support if you need it will be vastly better.
Totally agree. Regardless of where you buy this device ( from any of Gearbest warehouses) you will be required to send it back to China at your expense. Gearbest have a new policy whereby the may pay the cost of returning items but from what I recall, it's for DOA. But I'm Alice from Gearbest will more than likely join in shortly.

If your going to buy this or any Xiaomi devices from Gearbest or other similar type of retailer, its worth checking the serial code with Xiaomi website to make sure the product is genuine. Just a heads up.

Find Out About Laptops

Computers are essential to everyday living for many people and laptops provide the portable personal computing solution to enable easy work, play and Internet access from just about any place. Selecting the best laptop for your needs can be difficult when there's such a wide range of choice. Laptops use different operating systems: Windows, Mac OS X, or Chrome OS.  There's also a variety of styles, designs and features available to modern consumers, and 2-in-1 hybrids are becoming increasingly popular.

Finding the best laptop

Brief History of Laptops

The feasibility of desktop PCs and laptops became possible from the early 1970s, with the IBM 5100 being the first commercial portable computer to appear in 1975. The unique clamshell design of modern laptops appeared in the 1980s, but the expense of personal computers at that time meant their use was confined to organisations such as NASA and the US military. Developments such as colour screens, hard drives and read-only or writeable CDs and DVDs in the 1990s and early 2000s led to increased production, sales and affordability of personal computers, spawning generations of tech-savvy youngsters with sophisticated computing tastes and abilities.

Buying Considerations Before You Purchase Any Laptop

You'll need to consider a variety of aspects before buying a new laptop. These include:

  • Operating system
  • Weight
  • Screen size
  • CPU, RAM and available storage
  • Display and resolution
  • Gamers will need good graphics capability and fast speeds
  • Battery life
  • Ports, drives and connectivity
  • Requirements and use: personal, academic, work

Things to think about before buying a laptop

Specifications and pricing feature strongly in the decision-making process. It's a good idea to work out exactly why the laptop is required and the most essential features. Modern laptops are very powerful and can do most everyday tasks demanded. In fact, it's quite common for buyers to opt for a laptop that offers a variety of features that won't be used, inevitably paying over the odds for their device.

The following sections discuss laptop specifications in greater detail and will help you make an informed decision about the type of laptop best suited to your needs.

Pros and Cons of Different Operating Systems

One of the primary decisions to make before buying a new laptop will be the most appropriate operating system:

Windows Operating System

Windows is the most common operating system, available on a variety of different devices. Windows 10 was launched in summer 2015 and is considered to best version of the operating system to date. Many buyers will find choosing the operating system comes down to questions of price - with so many different makes and models of laptops operating Windows, it does offer greater choice and flexibility than alternative operating systems. An added benefit of Windows is that users have abilities to tweak their Windows experience, creating custom desktops and interfaces that are more personal. Windows devices are often easier to upgrade in comparison to Macs.

Windows Lenovo laptop

It's very easy to buy an inexpensive laptop operating Windows, but when you start comparing specifications and adding up costs of configuring laptops to meet requirements, Macs are likely to cheaper than similar Windows devices. For example, photo/video editing software is standard on laptops running Mac OS, whereas users need to pay extra for these packages with laptops running Windows. Always compare specifications across all manufacturers prior to buying and check around for the best discounts and deals on comparable laptops.

Windows users will find there's a greater choice of software applications than commonly available to other operating systems.

If you decide to buy a laptop operating Windows, you need to confirm it's running on Windows 10, as it is still possible to buy laptops with Windows 7 or 8 - these machines may not have drivers installed for complete and efficient Windows 10 installations. Don't be tempted by high spec laptops at bargain basement prices if there is no guarantee of a successful upgrade to Windows 10 after purchase.

An added disadvantage of any Windows device is that they tend to be targeted by spyware and viruses to a greater degree than Macs.

Mac OS X

Mac OS X is limited to Apple devices; however, most Mac fans will swear by its ease of use and flexibility. Apple products feature great design and specifications, with business users are particularly keen on their products. Laptops may initially appear to cost considerably more than comparable Windows devices, but the higher-end specification and software integration could make a Mac laptop work out to be comparable on pricing, or even cheaper than a Windows laptop. This is a particularly important aspect for professionals and business users who may require a dependable laptop with abilities to carry out tasks quickly and efficiently.

Macs have a good reputation for customer service and reliability, which is important for any user to consider. It's inconvenient to experience laptop downtime, particularly when deadlines are due. Although Mac OS X is only available on Apple devices users find the operating system dependable, there is never any problem integrating software and hardware. However, this is at the price of reliance upon Apple applications and it's virtually impossible to upgrade Macs at the bottom of the pricing scale. Gaming is also more limited with Macs, graphics upgrades are unavailable and there are less available games and models.

Google OS

Google OS is an alternative operating system owing its popularity to inexpensive Chromebooks. The system looks similar to Windows but has greater limitations. Google OS is good for surfing the web, but there is a lack of available applications. For many buyers looking for a laptop that's ideal for surfing the web, a Chromebook is ideal. It's always great to own a device with a high specification and abilities to carry out a multitude of tasks, but anybody who really just wants to access social media, emails and browse the Internet could be better advised to settle for the quick speeds of the Google operating system.

Chromebook

2-in-1 Hybrid Devices – Tablet/Laptop

To make buying prospects even more tricky, there are now a variety of tablets on the market offering the ability to switch between tablet mode or clamshell laptop mode. All such devices currently feature the Windows operating system and have detachable keyboards, with some users possibly finding that 2-in-1 hybrid devices give greater flexibility of use and provide far more benefits. These are powerful devices, not just lending access to all the software needed by students or business users, but also providing the opportunity to switch to tablet mode when travelling or during leisure times.

2-in-1 hybrid devices

The expense of 2-in-1 devices does put them out of the affordable price range of some buyers, it's also important to note that the Windows operating system won't offer as satisfactory a user experience as that of traditional laptops or desktop computers.

Mobility – Weight and Size

The weight and size of your prospective laptop purchase are very important if you will be carrying it around on a daily basis.

Students or businesspeople should ideally source a lightweight laptop with smaller screen if they plan to tote their computer around on a daily basis. Available screen sizes include 11 to 12 inches, 13 to 14 inches, 15 inches and 17 to 18 inches. CPU power for everyday use will be more than adequate from AMD A or Intel Core (i3 or i5).

The 13 to 14 inch screen sized laptops are best for portability and typically weigh in around 1.5 kg to 2 kg.

Ultrabooks

Another great option for the mobile usage are Ultrabooks. Already the name of these subnotebooks indicates that they´re ultraportable notebooks. Ultrabook is a trademarked brand by Intel, so all devices of this class feature an Intel Core processor. They are a direct competition to the Apple MacBook Air, although Apple’s subnotebook holds an Intel CPU as well, but is not sold under this brand. You´ll find a many Ultrabooks from manufacturers like Acer, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony or Toshiba.

Keyboards are Vital for Business Users

The keyboard on laptops needs to be sturdy and large enough to use on a regular basis. Business users may wish to consider keyboards featuring a nub so that it's easy to move around on screen using the pointing stick while operating the keyboard. The full-sized keyboard on Mac devices is an attractive feature for business users, too. The touchpad on devices also needs to be robust and stand up to constant use without jumping. Most laptops are provided with Bluetooth and USB ports, so it's easy to add wireless devices when needed.

Specifically for Gamers

If you're looking for a good gaming laptop, you'll likely need Intel Core i7, as well as a graphics processor suited for playing PC games. RAM is also an important factor. Budget laptops may only provide 2 GB, but 4 GB is a recommended minimum, or 8 GB if it's available. Laptops with SSD (Solid State Drive) will run faster than with a hard drive and also emit less heat. 1366 x 768 pixels display may be standard on budget laptops, but if you can get full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) the screen image and resolution will be much sharper and more appealing. DVD and Blu Ray drives don't normally come standard on laptops now, as most movies can be streamed easily, but it's quite possible to buy an inexpensive external drive if required.

Added Considerations to Aid Decision Making

A clamshell laptop

Look for a laptop with a minimum of two USB 3.0 ports and an SD card slot. All laptops now incorporate WiFi and are compatible with most signals. Battery life on laptops is also important to consider. If you plan to use your device away from home and plug sockets, there's nothing more frustrating than constantly experiencing dead batteries. You need a device providing at least eight hours charge - checking expert reviews is better than just accepting manufacturer statements.

Choosing the right laptop for your needs over the next couple of years is important, it is possible to upgrade devices but adding extra internal hard drives or a DVD drive can work out expensive.

Which laptop is the right one for me?

Windows laptop

Opting for a laptop with Windows allows greater flexibility over pricing and specification of available portable computers. Windows notebooks can be inexpensive options, while features like fingerprint recognition, touch screens and high performance CPU (central processing unit) are increasingly common. Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo are popular laptop brands, with some of the HP models specifically aimed at business users.

Apple laptops

Apple laptops are ideal for iPhone or iPad users who will appreciate the familiarity of the intuitive interface and find the Launch Pad for apps useful, as well as abilities to make iPhone calls and texts. Touch screens are not available on Macs and they are expensive, but they do have a high resale value. Apple support services are also highly rated.

Chromebooks

Chromebooks use the Google OS, as already described. Prices are inexpensive and these devices are lightweight and easily portable all day. If you don't need much memory or need to install many programs on your device these can be great for surfing the net and accessing social networks, email and streaming. Popular brands include Lenovo, Chromebook and Toshiba.

2-in-1's

2-in-1's are ideal if you want tablet format flexibility for streaming movies and entertainment, with the option to add a keyboard to make the device more like a laptop. Prices for tablets featuring Microsoft programs are much more than the norm and the keyboard is an additional extra, however these mini devices feature all the punch you expect from a laptop. The 2-in-1 devices can be switched between different modes, such as clamshell, tablet or tent and stand modes, and may be supplied with detachable screens or flexible hinging to change mode. Popular brands include Microsoft and Lenovo.

2-in-1 Laptops

Summary – Laptop Buying Guide

Online Retailers for Laptops

There are several laptop retailers online - Amazon, Tesco Direct, Currys, PC World and Argos being some of the major providers. Read several expert reviews before buying any laptop device online and ensure you buy a product with the specifications you need. It's also a good idea to drop into a retail outlet to check out the physical look and feel of laptops, and even trial them before placing any order.

Best Time of Year to Buy Laptops

There isn't really a "best" time of year to buy laptops, as discounts and offers are available all year round on a variety of branded products. If you're happy to accept older stock models, you may find buying a laptop in the second quarter of the year gives you a better specification model, as manufacturers tend to discount electronics more heavily after the end of the fiscal year. Good deals on new laptops tend to be available at the start of the new academic year, too. Black Friday deals and discounts for Christmas may also bring better prices around the holiday season. It is also noted that Monday tends to be the day that retailers apply discounts to electronics, so laptops could come down in price on Mondays if you shop around for the best prices.

All the laptop discounts, offers and promotions at hotukdeals.com are updated regularly, providing up-to-the-minute information the best place to source laptops at the most reasonable prices.
