It sold out as you posted the comment, it said low stock when I posted it. HotDeals wouldn't of approved the deal if it was sold out. ;)

I guess that deal is RIP. Sorry chaps!
This sold out very shortly after the 128GB SSD version!

Not to burst the bubble, but wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.
Windows 10 on a 32GB hard drive, plus word & excel and you're already nearing the limit of what you can store on there. Add on a few pictures, videos and music and you're just ducked.
honestly save an extra £50 and get something refurbed for around £220
I knew this was coming, this laptop clearly is not for you or for me. Whilst I have just splashed out that on an X240, not everyone needs a powerful laptop. This is a grade A1 (not an ex-lease) at a good price, for basic computing on the go with a longer battery life than my i5 Haswell processor can last.
Peeps have differing needs.
Its definitely not for me, but part of my day to day job is recommending laptops and telling ordinary people the reason why theyre so **** off with their cheap as **** laptop.
A deal is a deal, yes.. A **** laptop is also a **** laptop, and a deal becomes **** when the product is ****.
So, what would you recommend for £159 then? A four year old beat up laptop with zero battery life? Strange then that reviews do not think it or other budget N3050 laptops are crap.
As I said, it is not for me either, but for anyone after a new (A1 refurb) laptop rather than risking some old, power hungry laptop for doing basic computing on what is there not to like.
I already stated in my description header "Hardly going to set the world alight with basic specs, but similar processor/screen models retail for around the £230 mark, so a good deal for A1 refurb in my opinion for anyone interested in a basic laptop for social media and basic productivity with decent battery life."
So yes, a deal is a deal. Your own opinion on what makes a crap laptop is just simply that, your own opinion. For anyone after a low power laptop with excellent battery life to do such basic tasks on then it is an excellent deal compared to the usual £230 retail price of such.
Unless of course you can post anything better for a similar price in your so called day to day job. Perhaps try posting a few of those 'deals' on here instead of lurking.

*sigh* Once again...how many other times....Whilst you and I may be into buying older laptops (mine being a late-circa 2014) Thinkpad X240 i5 430U you are trying to compare apples to oranges.
Is there much point anyone that wants a basic laptop to risk spending £90 on a power hungry Ivy Bridge laptop with questionable battery life at that age for an ex-lease business laptop.
Whilst you and I may take such gambles, and personally I prefer newer ex-lease stuff...there are plenty of users out there that have no need for a powerful CPU, particularly ones as old as that which sap power.
Not much cop for what this particular N3050 is designed for, low power use.
I never posted this deal for it to turn into a comparison with bargain business laptops, there are plenty of other deal threads for that, each of which come with various pros and cautionary cons.
your story would be true if not for specifically the last link i dropped having a low power mode switching the cpu down to 800mhz with the press of a button and with a usage of just over 1.5 Watt making it even at reduced speed a better system then the n3050's 6 Watts. The battery is also more powerful and thus runtime will be greater. weather or not the posted box is a good deal or not very much depends on individual wishes indeed but even then if there are better and cheaper options it is not much of a deal.

Pointless trying to argue with someone that already has it in their head that a second hand 4-5 year old battered up business laptop would be more suitable for the target market, or for that matter one that gets their facts wrong. The run time is not greater, the battery will be heavier as will the laptop in question, especially considering its age. About the only fact you have right is that it is far more powerful...but once again...engage brain perhaps and understand EXACTLY WHAT THIS LAPTOP IS FOR.

For anyone that is interested instead of spending £160 on a business laptop then my advice is to be cautious on the condition and check the battery, you can end up spending a lot more getting it up to spec, involving taking the unit apart as there are many unscrupulous so called refurbishers out there, usually the ones that are not Microsoft Authorised Resellers (MAR's) and don't provide new refurbished Certificate of Authenticity (COA) Windows licences. Trusted sellers like ITZOO and Gigarefurb are two recommended ones.

I got better things to do this evening like watch Glastonbury and The Crystal Maze, and leave you with the stats from the U772.

I've been looking for a gaming laptop, and although 980M is hardly cutting edge, it's a bargain at that price. In that price range you're usually looking at a 2GB or, at best, a 4GB 1050, which is a pretty decent gaming card (for the money), but significantly slower! I do suspect this is indeed a QWERTZ keyboard however, as all the reviews I can find are from German sites, which is a deal breaker sadly :(


GTX 980m

not 980m

It can run most games at Max settings.

Scratch that, the 256GB version gone now too. Thankfully.
Just ordered mine 2 minutes ago so I'm not sure about that.

Yep, that has a 970M, so not quite as powerful. A decent enough price, but not as good as the original deal.
Bought this but might return it as I'm not sure. They say 14 day free returns.
Will this laptop do well for fighting games???
Street fighter 5, Tekken 7, MvCi, Dragonball Fighter Z, Killer Instinct???
Can I expand/replace the SSD if 128gb gets to small? How would I transfer the OS and data to it??

only 1080p? on a screen that size you'll notice it
Really? It's a more than capable resolution on my 42" TV.
I suppose I'm just spoiled with 4k monitors, a surface book and my galaxy s8 plus. My workstation has a 43" 4k screen. You obviously don't sit two feet away from your TV so that's not a comparison.
I have a 19" 1080p on my server and it's like going back to the stone age of screen rez. I certainly wouldn't want it in a laptop when it's obviously going to be stuck at that resolution for the entire life of the product.
In an age of high resolution devices offering between 300-600 pixels per inch, the screen in this gives a rather pathetic 127, and by it's very nature it's only ever going to be used a couple of feet away from your face.
For £700 - £800 I'd expect better, but wouldn't buy it anyway on that basis alone.
I think you've shot yourself in the foot there. Your 43" 4k screen has a lower dpi than your 'stone age' 19" 1080p monitor.
I don't sit with a 43" monitor on my lap. It's about a meter and a half away. Any closer and it becomes uncomfortable to be continually moving my head left and right, and it's scaled up to 125% so I can still use creative apps and benefit from a much larger workspace/resolution. I can't see individual pixels.

2nd the need for sad
Good for media centre. These processors are very efficient and with the right drivers support h265 video. Very good for everyday use on browsing, YouTube etc. Also support 4k at 60hz if I remember correctly, however HDMI ports are not v2 so only outputs 1080p 60hz unfortunately.
Guess this one comes down to whether you think the CPU is any good. It's just OK but sluggish with hard disk (depending what OS you use I suppose); If you're gonna put W10 on it I don't think it's worth it. Look for a decent refurb instead.

It works fine.

Really pleased with it
Never had a problem with my Zenbook, best laptop I've ever owned and I've owned a few although admittedly not a Zenbook 3..
The 2 customer reviews on JL aren't good and echos what I've experienced and been hearing about Asus laptops.

Can you put utorrent on chromebooks and acestream?

I've got an Asus chromebook flip and the acestream app works well. Combine it with either VLC or MX player and it works a charm with a mini HDMI cable plugged into the telly.

I have no reason to think this chromebook would work any differently.

Can't help but feel Chromebook users are using an SSD for the first time and thinking its the OS that's making it fast. Why just run "most" things when you can run everything for the same price?
What can "run everything" at this price? I've not seen any Windows laptops with decent specs (including a touch screen like this Acer R11) that can match a Chromebook for speed for less than £200 .

I actually got a £59 11" touchscreen Zoostorm with 32Gb mSata, 4Gb RAM on here from Zoostorms ebay site. The battery needed replaced but even one that was completely brand new would be well less than £200. Windows 10 boots in no time and I've just stuck a spare 1Tb laptop drive I had into it alongside the mSata. Windows 10 on an SSD is great.

I understand wanting to get a cheap chromebook but when it starts to get to £200+, imho it's missing the point.
I've been using the R11's big brother the R13 for a while and really like it.

"Can you put utorrent on chromebooks and acestream?" - not sure about those apps but Flud for Torrents works really well.

"can someone enlighten me if you can use the machine to work and save docs offline? Also can you download file from the Internet?" With the play store you can have Office but I use google docs, which is their version of Excel, Word etc. They can work offline, see instructions here: https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/how-to-activate-google-docs-offline-on-your-chromebook

Pros (based on the R13 but relevant for the R11): stupendously quick start-up, faster than my mobile and has an incredible battery, genuinely lasts all day.

Tips:
Install Google Play Store - you'll then get access to all the android apps so you can do everything your phone can do (as well as browse the web!)
Get a small usb drive like the sandisk ultra fit which can give you up to about 128GB of storage.

recommended apps: Office, VLC, TV player, Spotify, Netflix (you can save offline, not something Windows allows at the moment), Teamviewer, Pocket,

games: The usual Android ones, Angry Birds, Hearthstone, Egg Inc.

Anyone comparing this to a Windows laptop is making the wrong comparison, instead compare this to your phone or tablet with a proper keyboard and decent screen. It's not designed to be a Windows laptop, it's supposed to be a lightweight, fast, useable laptop which relies on cloud storage. If you use it as it's designed, you'll enjoy it.

The only downside I've found is as a developer, when remoting into a server I miss the windows specific keys I need on that box, the screen is a little wobby and the keyboard doesn't have great damping (again, I'm talking about the R13) but to get a Windows or Mac with a similar weight and snappy user experience you're going to be spending a lot of cash.

What, Windows 10?
From what I understand its Chinese Version and cant be changed, you need to re-buy licence.


It will be the Chinese version but it's very easy to replace with the English version. I've done it twice this year. It's only a licensing issue, and as long as you chose the correct version to replace it with, there should be no problem.

Is this listing correct? I didn't think they made a laptop Gtx 1050ti card with only 2GB vram? Thought it was only available in 4GB.

I'd definitely take a 1050 ti over the standard 1050 though.
id say for the money its a poor processor. and poor graphics card.

Go via their twitter account as that gives the 15% code you need for these prices.

I'd rather spend the little extra at this price point for something like this... Linky
I understand, but half the RAM capacity. Hence the deal. Feeling the cold today from this post is quite refreshing 8)

Also if anyone is aware of any better deals at similar/better specs I would appreciate a link/feedback. Thanks.


Depending on what you are looking for there are other options, but not cheaper:

There's a 256GB SSD+1TB/16GB RAM/1050Ti Inspiron Gaming 15 7000 from Dell for £980 until the 22nd (10% off code INSPIRON10) http://www.dell.com/uk/p/inspiron-15-7567-laptop/pd?&ref=gaming-page

£809 for the GTX1050 4GB, 256GB SSD (no mechanical drive) and i5 7300-HQ. Worse processor than this (no hyperthreading, just 4 cores), but battery life will be better and 4GB RAM will be better on the GPU. HDD vs SSD is a toss up depending on your use. 128GB+1TB vs 256GB. Same link as above. You can probably add an extra harddrive, but you can't add more RAM to the GPU, so the 4GB is more future proof.

There's a 17" Omen from LaptopsDirect with a GTX1060 http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/hp-omen-17-w196na-core-i5-6300hq-8gb-1tb-128gb-ssd-geforce-gtx-1060-6gb-1-z6l29ea/version.asp

I just ordered the 1050Ti Dell with an extra 4% cashback (hopefully) through work, so £950 or so all in. The battery life sold me on it. Up to 11 hours with light use (per actual tests), 7 hours or so video, maybe 3 hours gaming. Most others seem to have much worse battery life.


Link doesn't launch for me.

Is the dell a refurb? I've found some good refurb options around a similar price for the Inspiron but I could be tempted by the one you listed as I have a 15% off code but unsure which laptop you tried to list (well precisely which I should say)
Hmm,

I asked the 2 questions about (above backpack and free game) so cheers for confirming you got a backpack @gerdleah. It now appears laptopsdirect have sneakily REMOVED the photos of the backpack and have updated their listing with the FREE rocket league game with the purchase.

I asked them to confirm if you get the backpack now or not but they haven't replied to my email, so I'm gonna buy another laptop elsewhere instead.
I have an MSI GE72 6QD from last year. It's essentially the predecessor to this laptop and I was very impressed with it (even if I am new to PC gaming).
The GTX 1050 is supposed to give a 30% improvement on performance over the 960M in my laptop, and mine can run MGS5, Dishonored 2 and The Witcher 3 on Very High at 30-45 fps. Not perfect but enough for more casual gaming. Back then that laptop cost £950 as a special deal, so this seems like a bargain.

You might want to find a laptop with more VRAM in its graphics card, as this only has 2GB. Might not be very futureproof. You might want to do some more research and not take my word for it though. The processor used seems a bit overkill compared to the graphics card, but it will allow for very quick encoding of videos if that's your thing.

What I can vouch for in this laptop (as it is very similar to mine) is excellent audio out of the jack; a vast collection of IO; solid IPS display; great boot times (thanks to the SSD + HD); good RGB backlit keyboard and passable trackpad.

Mine was reportedly quite hard to open up and you may void your warranty, so consider that. However you can most likely upgrade the available RAM to at least 16GB. Some distributors will arrange this for you on request (as mine did) so you can keep your warranty and avoid breaking something.
Just received the laptop and I can confirm it comes with the backpack. At work just now so will let you know if you get a free game too.
I never saw a free game comment. Can't see it now either. Some sites seem to be offering Rocket League though for laptops over £500. This is just speculation though.

perfectly good for the price & pretty fast for the usual stuff by most people's standards
Usual load of rubbish about basic laptops. If all you want to do is edit Word docs, run basic spreadsheets and browse the net, this will be fine. If all you do is browse the net, then a Chromebook will be a good alternative for around the same price, but it won't run MS Office and it won't have any on board storage, so while Chromebooks are great (I have one) they are utterly useless of not on line and won't run Office. As a result, our Chromebook is useless for the kids' homework which they use Word for. As well as the Chromebook we have a medium spec (ie, higher than this) laptop, but before that we had a basic one with a similar spec to this for four years. It was never switched off, used every day for word processing and net browsing and it's performance was never a problem. It eventually dies after four years of continuous use. So if you want advanced photo-editing, create massive databases, run huge complex spreadsheets or play games a lot, don't buy this laptop. If you create documents and browse the web, it will be fine.

Ahhh the Real World. So here's a more Real-World question... What's better (and new, not refurb) for £200?If that's your budget (even £300 is a difficult budget for a laptop these days), you don't have a lot of options. Compromises have to be made. This is a decent spec. machine for kids & home office use. It's also pretty nicely built with decent hinges and not much flex on the case. Having looked at all the options I could find in that budget range, I settled on one a month ago for my daughter when they were £249. It's actually not that slow and she's been very happy with it for the usual Netflix / browsing / writing Word documents. It's no i7 but you need to double your budget if you want to avoid Atom / M3 / coreduos.Gets a hot from me.


Save up then. Just because you can buy a laptop for £200, doesn't mean you should. If you do go for this, the best upgrade is to go for an SSD, but then you might as well have just spent £300 on one that came with one anyway.

If you really must have a laptop purely for writing word docs, watching films, then look at a chromebook, they're often around £200-£250, with decent full HD screens and much much better battery life than this. Currys had a 14" the other week for £229.

Hope that helps.
I have this laptop, it's pretty light at 1.9kg, get about 5 hours battery life out of it using Office and browsing the web with screen at about 50%. 4GB ram is plenty. Haven't had any issues with the chip either, it's more than fast enough. This is with the HDD that came with it too.
Waste of money, E2's are seriously torturous and barely qualify as a processor, an abacus is faster.

Xiaomi better phones same price band .

Speaking as a person who has had a xiaomi redmi note 2 and now a xiaomi redmi note 4. I can tell you that it's not a good experience so far with the xiaomi redmi note 4. A significant number of apps don't work including an essential "call confirm" app. There are issues with people not being able to hear me unless connected through Bluetooth. Checking the Internet shows that it is a common problem with these phones. All issues combined, I would not recommend the xiaomi redmi note 4.

Don't want to hijack thread so quick suggestion Jabaltariq. If your problem is that people can't hear you when you use a wired headset /mic then would recommend you get soundabout app on playstore. Had same problem on note 3 but this has completely fixed. Default settings but after install shut down and restart phone.

iPhone 6: Bends when it's meant to remain rigid. Bending = defect.
LG G Flex: Bends because it's designed to "flex". Bending = feature.

Just down under the main bid section, it stated 'get this item for £99' - you click to expand the box and gives a code to use at checkout. I'd take a screenshot, but obviously doesn't appear for me now I've used it. It could well be that it's a targeted offer, but didn't say so. It's also not exlusive to this item as it showed on all the ebay items I was seeing.

Tell that to Fenwicks then - I've seen them displayed there for the past 6 months
Ive been reading about them for a year


I've read all the comments here and it's clear you are wrong Phil. The model advertised here has only just been released. You appear ignorant to that fact when trying to suggest a store has been selling them for months. Stop being a judgemental d1ck and just apologise for being wrong spactard.
I used laptops direct a couple of weeks ago. Monitor arrived, noticed the tiniest of marks on the plastic frame. they offered to replace or knock £50 off the price. I took the £50.

I'd probably use them again to be fair!

Are you taking out the Added care with John Lewis ?

I'm not sure on the price for the 10.5 inch model,but for the 12.9 inch it was £70 for 3 years accidental damage cover,which doesn't seem that bad when you consider Apple charge £89 for only 2 years.

It's been this price for weeks tbh, I've had my eye on it but not 100% convinced, tried the keyboard in Curry's and it didn't feel all that good.
Ruffuz - what's better about the one you posted other than it has an SSD? The one in the deal has a better processor no?
Ahh, I see it has a NVIDIA graphics card. I guess if you game then that one is better.

SSD will give much better experience than slightly faster cpu.
Graphic card is just a small bonus.

2GB of RAM is a sticking point with today's bloated software. The screen is poor on this netbook with very shallow viewing angles.
I would not recommend this laptop, I have one with equivalent specs from Lenovo bought at £149.99 from Argos last year. For very basic needs like reading and writing emails and word documents it is fine (which is what I use it for) but it is very slow with even the simplest web browsing - it can only cope with 1 or 2 tabs open of Internet Explorer or Edge, don't even try Chrome lol.
This is currently £169 from ao.com , complete with the year of Office.
With only 32GB of storage does it even have space to install office? Plus that's only a year's subscription rather than a full version.

I'd spend the extra on a mainstream laptop and Office 2016. It'll cost you twice as much up front, but it'll be cheaper in the long run.

Been happy with my surface for the last two years, would definitely recommend with 8gig and 256g i5
iPad auto correct sux and I can't edit for some reason.

As long as the device has a good ssd which the pros have it will run well.
4gb of go ram is not too small for win 10 pro. I have the surface pro 4 4gb i5 model and it's quite fast. As long as you had enough a good sad which the pro versions have and you can't go wrong.

I suppose it all depends what you need to do with it too. If graphics e.g drawing and heavy stuff then 8gb would be recommended but for basic usage it's 4gb is fine. I stream steam games from main pc , play x264 stuff do some drawing etc .
Rustybucket
Two things. 4gb is too small for Windows 10 Surface Pros and the images include accessories when they aren't included in this price. There is no mention of keyboards or mouse in the product description. It doesn't even mention the stylus.

All models are included in this deal, not just the basic one.
Interesting to see that it has windows 10 pro. Ditch windows 10 s from the start:) I still think these are awful specs for the price though. Would want 8 gig ram, quad core processor, dedicated Nvidia graphics and minimum 256 GB SSD if spending almost £1000

I bought this under a month ago at same price and received it within 2 weeks of ordering. I did a clean install of Windows 10 English bought from ebay, as on the chinese version even if you change the language there are a few things still in chinese.

Only other thing to note is that it has a US keyboard layout, two slight differences I can tell are that the @ key is moved to shift and hold 2 key, and I don't see a pound sign on the keyboard.

Can't fault the laptop performance in general, I love the screen.

Bought this 1 month ago, just yesterday i found out it s lost somewhere in china.

Had a very bad experience with Gearbest and would not recommend buying something like a laptop from them. Bought a Xiaomi Note from Gearbest which developed a faulty screen. Sent the phone back in Jan for replacement - once received they said that phone will be repaired and returned and not replaced - which would have been fine.. but.. 6 months later still no news from China.. I bought another phone in the meantime hence OK, would not want to repeat the same with a laptop

i always mention it, but you always get the very vocal "I always buy from China, and nothing bad ever happened".
but the rest of us in the silent majority have indeed suffered from crap products and nonexistent customer service and useless warranty.

I am very very happy for those who didn't get any issues, but they got lucky.
I hope they never ever get any issues and suffer like we have.

I do buy from China quite a bit, but I do my.research and buy bits and bobs and not important stuff.
Bought this 1 month ago, just yesterday i found out it s lost somewhere in china.
I wish i ve had these warnings when i bought it

My son bought one of these after a kid smashed his last laptop screen by slamming a door on to his last school bag. - thank heavens for currys insurance!
This seems very well padded and just the right size.

This is a great price for the form factor/spec combination.

Lenovo marketed their flex range (or Yoga) as being 4 in 1. That's functions, not devices. This is a 2 in 1 - 2 functions in one. Quite why you'd argue that is a bit weird. Maybe try using one. They're very usable when in their 'tablet' mode.

Your information is outdated. The board approved a few months ago that it is ok to call it 2in1.
Just because some 'board' calls it a 2 in 1 doesn't make it so in my eyes. 2 in 1 means 2 devices in 1, and a laptop with a 360 degree hinge is not 2 devices in 1, its one device that just opens further. Even the laptops that have a reversible screen like the Dell’s XPS 12 Convertible Ultrabook and HP TouchSmart are not 2 in 1's they are just hybrid laptops.
A tablet is not 2cm thick, weighs 1.6kg and has a keyboard stuck to the back of it. So let some board decide what they want to call it to try and generate more sales /shrug. But its not a 2 in 1.

well the keyboard deactivates in that position so its like a textured back on a tablet if you like...
Nice try but its still not a true 2 in 1. Just a laptop with a 360 hinge. And at this price its nothing special for a laptop these days...

Nothing with a ulv processor is viable as a desktop replacement regardless of whether it has Thunderbolt or not, the ulv processors may be slightly faster than a Core-m but in reality they're still very weak processors overall. I've read criticisms about the Core-m saying it's too slow for video editing and 3D tasks but I'd say exactly the same about the ulv processors, I did briefly try a quick render on my ulv powered PC and it was going to take so hilariously long compared to my desktop PC I just waited until I could render it on the desktop PC. In practice, I don't find I can do anything more on the ulv PC's than I can on the Core-m's and I also have to put up with an irritating amount of heat and noise from the ulv machines.
For those needing a bit more horsepower for a desktop replacement, I wouldn't even remotely consider a ulv processor and would be looking at one of the 45W quad core parts which is available in smaller laptops although there is a size/weight penalty.
John
You're missing the point.
The i5-7200U is a 15W TDP processor, the i5-7Y54 is 5W. For web browsing etc. both will be fine. Anything more than that and the i5-7Y54 is going to noticeably trail behind.
Given that both these laptops have thunderbolt someone may look to replace their desktop/laptop setup with an XPS and thunderbolt dock. Doing that you will be more limited with the i5-7Y54 than you would the i5-7200U.
I never claimed one of these processors was suitable for video editing and 3D. I simply said to be aware one processor is slower than the other. You are using your own use case to represent everybody.
Seconding this, hook a core M up to an external gpu and they really feel constrained compared to a U series chip, but then so do the Us compared to the quad cores. I suspect it's a sustained load thing with the M series though, with web browsing once it's done rendering the page that's it for a while and it can go to sleep. With gaming it's going to be under load for an hour or more so will end up throttling down to 1GHz or less.
*edit* also the price of the latitude 7275 (I. E. Dell xps 12, a 12" tablet with dual thunderbolt 3s, core M, 8GB ram and a small battery) is ridiculous. The going rate on ebay is 400 GBP or so, but dell are charging 800 minimum.
While technically a ulv processor with a discrete processor is not as slow for gaming, it's still rubbish for it - gaming is a function of both the CPU and the GPU so while having a beefy GPU can help with the eye candy, it doesn't overcome the very weak GPU. Dell did try it for a spell with the AW13 but abandoned it and more sensibly went with a 45W quad core part instead which also features a dedicated external GPU system in addition to an onboard GTX 1060. That is a decent portable gaming system, an ultrabook with a ulv processor and a TB port absolutely is not.
Just because a ulv processor isn't quite as painfully slow as the Core-m doesn't stop the ulv being painfully slow either, I wouldn't remotely consider a core-m or ulv platform if I was planning gaming or any application that required any sort of cpu horsepower as they're both useless at it.
John
Except the Alienware 13 weighs 2.6kg, making it pretty useless as a laptop in my opinion as it's too heavy to use on a lap or carry around. I appreciate what you're saying but gaming laptops have been practically unchanged for a decade, they gain more performance each year but every generation is hot, heavy, has a short battery life and can be incredibly expensive as laptop GPUs command a premium price. This makes them bad at being laptops but great at being compact desktops. With thunderbolt 3 we suddenly have devices in the 1kg range that can be good laptops that also play games when at a desk. They're not ideal, but I think it's a much better compromise.

There's no way 2.6kg is too heavy to carry around or use on your lap, if we're talking about an SLI 17/18in machine then sure - totally agree with you on that front as that's what was the end of the portable DTR's for me. My daily laptop used to be a 17in machine around 4kg and it was really no problem to carry around at all (still carry three to four kg's of laptops every day and I'm not going to make any bold claims about upper body strength), just a little hefty for using on a train seat - 2.6kg is still absolutely lightweight, it's just the way the market is that appears heavy because it's more than a common ultrabook.

As for gaming laptops being practically unchanged for a decade, that's just so bizarre I'm wondering if you're just trolling now. Being able to have a machine just 2.5kg in weight with a 45W quad core and nearly six hours of batterylife is insanely good for a gaming laptop, it's magnitudes better than older gaming laptops - I thought getting near desktop performance in a 4kg machine and two hours battery life was good, the leaps and bounds gaming laptops are making now are incredible.

Thunderbolt is not some magical connection as some people seem to think it is - gaming on a 1kg ultrabook with a discrete GPU is just horrible. I truly wonder if the people who keep recommending it have actually tried this? I actually have as I liked the idea of it but it really doesn't work. Ultrabooks are good for light work that doesn't need any cpu or gpu horsepower regardless of whether they have a magical thunderbolt connection or not - trying to make them do any more than that is just a lesson in frustration.

I'm not missing the point but you clearly missed my point entirely - anything more than web browsing etc. and the ulv will also horribly trail behind, it's a painfully slow processor for anything that needs any cpu grunt. You keep saying how the XPS 13 is viable as a desktop replacement because it has thunderbolt but thunderbolt for what exactly? There's nothing you can do with thunderbolt that will help the painfully slow ulv platform.

It's nothing to do with my 'own use case' - I've used a variety of processors and a variety of different tasks, there's nothing the ulv processor does noticeably better than a Core-m, rather hilariously I've seen people criticise the Core-m for being slow at video transcoding and 3D gaming....yet the ulv processor while it may be technically slightly faster is still laughably slow to be viable at the task and no use as a desktop replacement.

Who's gaming on an M? Or a U for that matter. At the end of the day there's a reason why desktop computers and big old fat gaming laptops still exist. These machines have a purpose, and do it well. They're not marketed as gaming machines, or even work horses. They're designed for portability, running web apps and productivity apps, and running 1080p video. That's about it. I agree that so far the heads up and information has been useful, but let's keep the debate seated in reality and leave gaming where it belongs. On gaming machines.

Also FYI got my confirmation through folks, I7 model on its way to me!

Many thanks again OP. I've been waiting for a decent deal on an XPS 13 for months!

Thanks for all you input everyone, I went with it the end and really like it, seems to fit my needs well. The battery life is excellent, although it's not too difficult to improve on my 7 year old Sony laptop.Build quality is decent too for a laptop so thin.

This is an amazing deal. Think of it as an M3 SP4 and the price makes more sense. Build quality and refinement / portability are commensurate with the original RRP nearer £1000.
The "poor specs for the money" brigade are never going to pleased with these sort of devices; They may be happy lugging around 2kg £400 plastic core-I5 laptops with "great specs" but I'm not.
I've got the m7 version and it's absolutely fantastic. Blows my previous Surface out of the water in every single way. Battery life is immense.

WHAT? have Lenovo developed the perpetual motion device? How did they overcome the first and second laws of thermodynamics? **winks**

As to this being expensive for the specs, Apple have been doing that for years, nothing new in the IT industry...

Why is this cold? its almost half the retail price. If that isnt a hot deal, then what is?

@2003bluecat, for your use case this should be perfect. The core M processor in this is pretty much designed for office, media consumption and lightweight tasks. This laptop also has one of the largest battery of any core M device, at 54whr, so battery life should be around 9-10 hours for normal web, youtube use. It's thin, light and also comes with a wacom digitizer; if you want to get your art on, take notes etc..

Its ridiculous the prices on these poor specs. Looked through and found my Dell invoice in 2012 for the 15r se with i7 3632qm, proper real quad core with ht, was £367. Shameful how 5 years on, a laptop like this gets hot on HUKD but costs way more and benches half what my 5 year old laptop does... cant wait for the Ryzen laptops to stomp on Intels mobile dominance.

That was not a typical price then for a new Intel quad core laptop and isn't now so apart from boasting about the deal you had your post seems pointless.


Touchy not feely eh. My oh my some thin skinned individuals like yourself. I can show you the invoice if you want. Basically read my post, wasnt simply about this price but the less than impressive specs as its not a Hq variant of the i7.

5 years ago I bought a top spec i7 Sony laptop with wacom screen and that cost £1800. I bought a similar thing recently with top i7 spec and it was £750. I'd say prices have come down.


You have to define what the top i7 spec is, considering the current line of U cpus are for power efficiency and not performance unlike the 3rd gen stuff.

I have a Lenovo Flex 2 which is similar and has 4th gen i3 and 6gb ram with 1 TB HDD. You can buy that for £200 instead of this £500 machine

Any idea where I can pick up the Flex 2 for £200?

Ooooh, and it's gone negative. What a surprise!

Even though it's the best price out there at the moment except for one terrible supplier.

Wouldn't it be good if people voted on the deal, not because they didn't like the product?

That's it, I'm voting cold on all the protein powder and stuff like that.

Not really, I don't care *sniff*.

My feelings, etc... ;)

There's always a new version on the way!

Laptops - Compact Personal Computers

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

Laptops: Work, Gaming and Entertainment on the Go

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.

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

New MacBook Design

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.

Laptop 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.

Gaming Laptops

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 2GB, but 4GB is a recommended minimum, or 8GB 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.

Accessories and More to Think of

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.

The Best Laptop Deals

There are several retailers online and on the high streets like Amazon, Tesco Direct, Currys, PC World and Argos that offer laptop bargains regularly. 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.

There isn't really a best time of year to buy, as discounts and laptop sales are available all year round. 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. Best price laptops tend to be available at the start of the new academic year as well as the January Sales, 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.
