Also says it's a 1050 Non TI.
Graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (4 GB GDDR5)
Although it doesn't state it's TI the specification states 4gb making it the TI
That's a very bad assumption to make. Nvidia also make 1050 Non Ti with 4GB GDDR5 so if this included a 1050 Ti, I'm pretty sure they would've stated it. Therefore, this is almost guaranteed NOT to have a 1050 Ti.

The 4GB config really shouldn't exist in the Pro lineup imo.
4Gb is fine for most users, the SSD is fast enough for the virtual memory and there is a reason why 128Gb SSD devices hardly every come with 8Gb: page file and the hibernation file are much bigger so less free disk space.
Not the first time I have seen this comment here although I am not sure disk thrashing is the brightest idea when it comes to an ssd's life span - just saying.

Again a user fails to read and comprehend my comment.
I said 4GB shouldn't be included in the Pro lineup.
Put it in the Surface family but start the Pro sku with 8GB. That's what I said. Not that the 4GB model shouldn't exist. It just makes little sense to have it in a Pro branded device imo.

I guess 'Pro' must mean most casual users and their nan's nowadays.
Anyone think it will be even cheaper after they announce the sp5? Got to admit I'm tempted by the price.

edit: Just noticed code says it can't be used with sale items.

If you can't be honest with yourself then how do you expect to tell me the truth please try to sort yourself out you still have time in your hand it wlll take time for you to recover

let's get this straight - you asked a very stupid question: 'How much was the price in the first place and what is the deal it's showing £19.99 on their website so how do I get this deal'

Not bad but considering the VAST improvements the newer gen has (finally laptop GPUs can near enough match desktop equivilants unlike being vastly weaker like we're used to) it kind of makes me hum and har.
I got a dell similar specs 18 months ago for 700, so this doesn't seem that great of a deal
I got a similar ASUS ROG (this one) last year for £690. Might we worth keeping an eye on the price of that if you narrowly missed out on this.

bought one from pcw a few months back for 750, then returned it because of lightbleed of the screen (in one corner). It was difficult to do any photo editing with part of the screen always brighter - totally unacceptable. I took it back and got a replacement which had a good screen but suffered from coil whine (worse than a graphics card in a stress test). Went back for another replacement and they offered me one with the backup already made by them (PCW) which is usually £35 but I would get it for free. What a good excuse to sell me an opened box one. At that point I changed my mind and got a refund.
Battery is not good at all in my opinion, It does not last long and also it has a short life about 350 recharge cycles (as stated by Dell)
Screen is bright. It does reflect a bit and u can't use polarised sunglasses with it. Don't ask....
Touch pad is nice and loads of features. Zoom, two three and r finger options.
Doesn't seem to overheat but fans run when on full screen video. Not too loud.
PaulGT
I haven't really used it on battery. The graphics driver switches between the on board and the nvidia though to maximise usage. But says around 4 hours when on full charge. Haven't used it much though so may go up or down.
Some of the windows scaling is a bit funny when at 125%. That's common windows 10 though.
Okay thanks! How is the touchpad? Also, is the screen very reflective? And from what you have experienced, any overheating issues? Cheers

This is rubbish - 1 HDMITM 1.4a
I was watching some reviews of Lenovos and HP's this week over on Mobile Tech Review and they made comments about how even the most expensive Dells are still coming with 1 HDMITM 1.4a when the likes of Lenovo and HP are coming with the latest 2.0.
They went on to talk bout external 4K screens and how you apparently need 2.0 to get the 4K to work on an external monitor whereas anything under 1.5 can't hack it apparently.
I rarely ever connect to an external display so I guess that isn't a problem personally. But I agree, it does seem a bit silly that dell still only use 1.4 even in their 2017 range of laptops.

Just to point out that there's 20% off the keyboard. Agree, however, that it is a bit of a poor show not bundling the keyboard in with the tablet. Guess that's MS for you. Still, hasn't stopped me from succumbing to temptation! ;)
Ah it isnt 10% off the cheap ones either - that swhy I thought it was a good deal i5 for 730 - 10% but it isnt
Still too expensive for me - haven't voted cold though. Hopefully we'll see lots more discounts over the next couple of months though, when the SP5 is released.

Doesn't look like it comes with the keyboard?
Getting more and more tempted though!


​How can they call it a 2-in1 laptop if there's no keyboard? One of the '2' is missing!

Dell are refunding me due to ongoing issues with redshift as you move away from centre of the screen so I just saved nearly £100 reordering thanks to these codes, best I could do last time was get a 10% off via the VIP club after emailing them and waiting 4 days!
Such a shame every review sample had the Samsung PM961 with stonking speeds and since release everyone gets a lottery of Hynik, LG or Toshiba all running around 50-70% of the Samsung speed. It is like buying a 2 litre car and being handed a 1.6!!!
I've heard that some people have complained about the slower ssds being sent instead of the Samsung and been compensated. Is there any value in trying if we end up with a slower one? (Although I'm not sure how much real world difference it will make for me personally)

Anyone with this issue should contact Dell's customer care. It's bit of a frustration as I find them difficult to deal with but they will likely offer 10% compensation if you want to keep it. Well, that's what happened in my case although I had to prove what the drive was. Call took about an hour (called technical dept first then patched through to their customer care dept).

Should mention I bought mine from Dell outlet but would think it's the same if you buy from their main site too. Great laptop as well.

I believe there may still also be around £60 off an extra year of warranty that expires on the 22nd. 30 quid for an extra year. Yesterday I used the save2 code which stacked with a student discount code to get an i7, 512gb 1080p version with 2 years warranty for £1377. If there was quidco I forgot about it :P just hoping I don't get a lemon, heard a lot of horror stories but also a ton of praise from those who got good ones.

I'm glad it helped! :)

Screen is crappy and keyboard area gets too warm during use but if you like this particular laptop, then its a good price at the current time.
Good deal, very tempting, voted hot.
Ideally want at 1050 ti, or even a 1060 for gaming, although haven't seen any decent deals for any.

If you're after something more discrete, as far as I can tell this is essentially the same laptop (and at the same price) but in silver.
No Elite Controller (worth £100-£120) with that one though.
Good spot - I forgot to check that. Thanks.
And there is no SSD
Doh! I should have checked more carefully before suggesting this as an alternative, as this and the lack of free controller make it nowhere near as good as the Omen.
Actually, it does have the SSD, so just the controller you miss out on with the Pavillion. That's still enough to make the Omen a significantly better deal though.

People are voting cold on these just due to the resolution. No doubt, you need a good screen but they don't provide alternatives to the deals.

I was in the same position with this and a surface pro. I found a SP for £900 new though and couldn't resist because i wanted to draw, too. The SP is fantastic but mine has half the storage of this and no 4k. Oh and no HDMI out...

I was looking at surface pro too, but equivalent would be surface book which is another level and another price level. Stylus works but not with surface features.
Thanks so it's like a capacitive stylus instead of the type the surface pro has? Would it be ok for writing up maths assignment answers?

Wouldn't touch anything android with only 1gb of ram!
Maybe I'm just cynical but when neither the battery capacity nor the battery life is quoted in the specs for any portable device I tend to give it a body swerve. Been there before too often over the years!
hopefully the quoted weight is with the packaging and the charger, I don't fancy using a 1.5Kg tablet!
better tablets available on ebay for around the same price, reviews aren't exactly glowing either

This tablet is extremely SLOW! The extendable memory feature refused to work with and micro SD card, so the SD card can only be used as external memory.

Was actually quite happy with this until I experienced its incredibly short battery life. I bought it to write on while out and about but it is wholly to inadequate for this task

Also the keyboard does not always work like an English keyboard as some keys do not do what they say they do. It is also quite slow. Disappointed.

I have had many Tablets but never had one as bad as this one when I said it was Slow Ment to say it is the Slowest Tablet I have ever had

Sent it back. Its was very slow and the battery drained over 4 hours from full charge without using it. It also would not download Amazon prime app and struggled to use other apps. so pointless.

I managed to:

- Turn on my laptop
- Log into my Amazon account
- Request a return
- Print off the shipping return label

In the time it took this tablet to open Facebook.
okay price but the 1gb ram is a bit of a let down

The price is good, but id rather pay a bit extra and get HP Spectre as Envys battery is nowhere near as good as on Spectre, so im not voting cold or hot.
btw Hornet, don't be such a cry-baby and stop moaning every time people vote cold... the crowd has spoken and they don't like this particular deal :)

Would the Asus Zenbook not better choice at this exact price? No touchscreen but better reviews (from very quick look). I've been looking at £400-500 light 14in laptops and I see you get an i5 and 4K screen for your extra £300 but not all that much else apart from maybe more storage.
Which model in particular are you looking at?
I've been avoiding Asus machines as of late as many lack a backlit keyboard which is inexcusable imo.

Dell have really ramped their prices using BREXIT as the excuse. They are very uncompetitive now IMPO. Their outlet prices are, with the rare exception, crazy as well.
I am glad someone else thinks that as well. Everyone is doing it. Even when brexit has no part to play. Most of dells parts comes from china i bet anyway.

True. However, you can find some fantastic offers on their outlet. Got myself the new XPS 15 i7, 512GB SSD, and Full HD screen for £900 the other week (used a 15% discount voucher). You can find deals there, it's just a shame you have to be there at right place right time when they update the inventory. PC was brand new and was likely a customer return despite being a scratch and dent unit.

I had a look on their Outlet last & this week and was truly shocked how expensive their Outlet stuff is even without the VAT. I then went and checked out Lenovo stuff which, for new, was often in a similar price range as the Dell Outlet stuff but often better specced.

I bought a 2 in 1 ultrabook from Dell, new, 2.5 years ago via a PayPal deal - got it for £650 as opposed to some ludicrous £800 region. The aluminium looking case turned out to be grey plastic and where my palms rest it has worns away to a rough, dirty plastic. Certainly not worth the £650 I paid let alone the £800 they were asking. I now see that they want silly sums for basic desktops and laptops whilst their metal case laptops are a silly, silly price.

I will need a new laptop this year and will opt for a HP or a Lenovo as they seem better spec, better build and a lot cheaper.

Rant over.

Btw, the Pound looks to have bottomed and financial gurus reckon the Pound might go up to a whopping $1.70 in the next couple of years. Don't hold your breath for prices like Dell dropping drastically to accomodate that though.

This was £700 12 months ago (I bought one!) and was £630 9 months ago!!! Still a decent price for what it is, but funny how prices of laptops have gone up up and up in the last 9 months!
From your own statement, you are either a very confused person, or you dont understand the deprecation of good, as they get older. What school of finance did you study at?
why comment if you dont understand the comment or the facts behind it?!
He paid 700 12 months - £19,99 cheaper
Then was 630 9 9 months - £90 cheaper
Now it is 719
You do the math einstein
Yes Isaac Newton, I have done the math and can deduce that you haven't read my comment. I said that it's stupid that prices have gone up but actually the price seems pretty decent compared to other laptops that are available today :{
I guess i never saw that. Still my point is validated. Why pay more, when newer tech is out.

With the savings you could just fit a SSD into the extra 2.5" slot.
However if the other mentioned deal has a M.2 SSD that would be a better option in my opinion as it has SSD and HD.
Why would I want to spend £700 on a laptop and then start taking it to bits?

Just weighing up the options and comparing to the other deal. For some it's a simple task to put a hdd/ssd into a laptop. I understand some people may lack the skills/confidence to do so. Hence the other deal with both hdd and ssd being a more desirable offer should you need both, if you don't this would be a better option.

Can this have a separate SSD installed, thinking of selling the xbox controller and buying a SSD to install the OS on?


​and voiding your warranty at the same time. I was going to do something with a recent msi purchase but lucky I didn't as it had hdd failure within 2 months and the warranty label was on the screw directly above the hdd

There's a brief page that shows prior to that error which has a link about halfway down the text. If you are quick you can click on that and the order then goes to confirmation page. I've just managed to do that 5 mins ago and had confirmation email through.
Has anyone managed to actually place an order yet? Must have tried a couple of dozen times throughout the day... every time I get the "There was a problem authenticating..." message. I've tried three different cards, two PCs, one laptop and my phone. Very frustrating!
This totally prompted me to buy a FHD 13" 2-in1 laptop :) But officially Dell refurbished from a seller on eBay instead as it was cheaper, had more ram and the same type of warranty :D

If you can get them to accept payment that is... epic fail by Dell on this one.
"There was a problem authenticating your MasterCard information. To protect against unauthorized use of your card, you cannot complete your purchase without successfully completing authentication."
Ring customer services... "site wide problem, and we cant take payment over the phone - sorry"... yet as I was on the phone to them their stock numbers were going down... lol

Same on Mastercard and Visa (and I had used both of them today already). Rang both cards and not declined any payments either. WTF


I agree. Payments are epic fail. Same happened to me while paying with Visa.

Will mainly be kept at home. Main usage will be browsing, watching videos and playing one game now and again. Will the SSD be better for this than the usual HDD? Thanks

SSD is always going to be better and laptops generally always have two HDD caddies. I would (personally) put a normal HDD in once storage became an issue later down the line. Much better than having a HDD, then wanting to format the entire laptop when I decided an SSD was needed. If you're not ever going to take it out of the house, then there's no reason not to buy a bigger screened "desktop replacement" style laptop.

Realistically, the only thing that's going to eat storage space these days are the big AAA games (My GTAV folder for instance is nearly 70GB) but those types of games are going to struggle on 80-90% of laptops anyway. Everything else is streamed these days; Netflix, iPlayer, Spotify, Google Play Music, whatever.

I understand I generally qualify as a "power user" so I am being very picky waiting for the right work laptop for me.

Depends what you want. ​That's not got an SSD and is an older generation I5-6200U so will be slower for some stuff but you're trading that off against the bigger screen.

I meant not disrespect to the OP but to Lenovo for their inaccurate spec listing. Customers have a right to accurate information. Returning a laptop on the back of inaccurate information from the vendor, if it bothers you, is a bit of a pain.

Let's face it posting a gaming laptop on here is death - too many armchair experts.
Plenty of gaming laptops go hot, just alot of people post not knowing the market when they see money off deals, it is what it is.
Only ones that have been going hot lately are the HP Omen ones - rest have been voted cold as ice.
Because of the specs, this one has old specs when lastest gen graphics cards and processors can be had for the same price or cheaper.

Did I mention this one? In general, virtually all laptops go cold - it's a fact and it's the same with desktops which bring out the 'build your own' brigade.

It might be a good price, but the build quality on Acer laptops is shocking.
I had an Acer Aspire for less than 2 years before I had countless problems with it. Replaced the fan twice , the AC jack stopped working , all the plastic snapped off where the screws went into holding the laptop together, ended up binning it in the end!
I have a Dell inspiron now and not had a single problem with it. Steer well clear of Acer.
Don't bother, the AMD E1 is barely more powerful than an abacus.

I'm in the market for a gaming laptop, I want one good enough to do VR so that I can bring it into the living room when I want roomscale or more often than not, just have it upstairs for normal gaming.
I was hoping the 1070 or even the 1080 equipped machines would be dropping in price. Work has given me a 2k budget.
I've looked at the Omens before but they only have 3 USB ports which is a bit restrictive for me.

I don't consider a laptop with 8GB RAM to be of excellent spec, especially for a gaming laptop. HP laptops are very cheaply built, not as solid as Dell or ASUS. You can get an ASUS ROG series with similar if not the same spec for this price!
You don't need 16GB for gaming, it's a common misconception and makes little to no difference for majority of games. The problem here is the 2GB VRAM being the heavy hitter.
I don't believe the reasons people shooting it down are completely credible though, until I see some links. This is sub-£900 and John Lewis. There maybe be better deals, but this is a very good laptop for the price from what I've seen in the past.
I didn'y say you require 16GB RAM but you would expect more than 8GB! This laptop does not have an optical drive either; some of us still buy software on discs or play dvd's.
Intel say the 7th gen chips are about 13% faster than the 6th gen, but many tests say that 6th gen are just as good. Try looking at Laptops Direct or SCAN.

Actually you do in some games though ones that do tend to be bad ports/optimised. Within a year or two it's going to be common so might as well have it now.
I disagree, name me a game and I will happily upload a video of it running it on 8GB RAM. What titles are being ported in the next year that makes you think this?
For best performance batman arkam knight needed 12GB on release though it doesn't know, Quantom Break and Mankind Divided has 16GB recommended though they are bad ports. You don't need16GB per se if you don't really care about performance much but if you value that then that is the recommended specs. I don't know if any titles being ported but it's common sense that as times go on games will require more and more ram.
I've also heard of people having better performance in some games with double the amount of ram even though it's not even on recommended specs. Watch Dogs 2 for example.
As you mentioned, Arkham Asylum doesn't need more than 8GB now but check out this article for the game on its bad release. Even the bad port (release) only had 1/2 fps drop, and this text was run with a GTX 980, which was one of the best cards out at the time (and much better than this laptops). It had to be powerful enough for the RAM to be the bottleneck, or else the test would be pointless.http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2015/08/why-you-still-only-need-4gb-of-ram-for-a-great-gaming-pc/
Even when games are VERY badly ported, with maxed out other hardware, the fps difference is 1 or 2 frames per second. I can't show you a video on games that arn't out yet, but I highly doubt you would need 16GB RAM on a GTX 1050Ti for a performance boost lol. I might do my own youtube video showing the absolute BARE-MINIMAL performance difference this makes, because it really is one of the most common misconceptions.
In short more RAM won't make a difference in this gaming laptop, the VRAM will. Even if it was possible to put 800GB RAM in, it still would make no difference because there is only 2GB VRAM. This will be your bottleneck here, and all laptops of similar spec. People voting cold for the 8GB RAM are honestly voting it cold for the wrong reasons.
This is a decent laptop for the price in my opinion, even for the Graphics Card.
EDIT: I also don't blame you or anyone for thinking differently for thinking RAM is super important for gaming. There are websites out there that say you need lots of RAM, but if you notice they link the source as if to say "this didn't come from us". This is because alot of people believe the information to be incorrect. Steam always overshoot the Hardware requirements, mainly because they don't want to troubleshoot people who meet the actual borderline hardware requirements. Some of the Steam games that "require" 8GB can be run on my Grandma's toaster PC for example.
Arkham Knight not Arkham Asylum. Arkham Knight had hell of lot more FPS drops than just one or two.....It also a crash fest of a game.

The link was for Arkham Knight lol, I just typed it wrong but I'm assuming you didn't click it. Whatever game you play on this laptop won't be bottlenecked by the RAM, doesn't actually matter what Batman game it is.

Let's say the MAX you could play Arkham Knight was "high" at 1080p at 60fps on this laptop (I don't know, but lets assume this is correct), if you gave it an extra 8GB RAM (to 16GB) it wouldn't improve. That's the simplest way to explain it.

That's a decent looking laptop for under £160. The only drawback for me is the built-in stoage: "64GB eMMC ROM Storage Capacity". No HDD/SSD capability really limits it unfortunately, otherwise I would be all over this.

Are any mobile i7's quadcore these days (or where they ever?)

If by mobile you mean the low-power chips with numbers followed by "U", then those have always been 2 core as far as I know.

It would be far more sensible if Intel just kept the i7 name for 4 or more cores. It's not clear to your average punter what difference there is between a 2-core i7 and a 4-core i5. The "U" at the end of the chip name just seems to stand for "Underpowered".

There are certainly plenty of decent 4-core i7 laptops around - like this one for example: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hp-omen-15-ax205na-gaming-laptop-intel-core-i7-8gb-ram-1tb-hdd-128gb-ssd-15-6-full-2636678

Good price, older i7 model though. So 2 cores with 4 threads, not a true quad core.

I cant see anywhere it claims to be a "quad core"

Intel® Core™ i7-6500U 2.5GHz
Turbo boost up to 3.1GHz
Intel HD Graphics 520
4MB cache
2 cores


​I assume they mean a lot of people see i7 and think it's a quad core, but that's not the case anymore.

Yep, the sign outside (see my first link of the 3 at the bottom) says "Office Outlet".

Great specs for that price, can do a fair bit of gaming on that GPU too! HOT!
Everything's really good for gaming at that resolution apart from the processor, but for £525 nothing I know off will beat this.

Defo if someones in the area and looking for a gaming laptop this looks like a decent recommendation. Hot &lt;3

Got this delivered yesterday. First impressions, looks allot more expensive then whats been paid - kinda slick really and Not really had much time with it, but its pre-activated windows so litterally just boots into the desktop, no setup and looks like no bloatware too. Wifi connected with no issues, but cant see any 5g signals on the list so presume its limited so 2g. Plugged in two USB external drives and both powered and read fine. Tried a quick 720p rip and this played ok too. Screen display seems good, but one of those only straight on kinda dispays as instantly washy if viewed from side. I would have played with it more....but its started dreaded windows updates and this slowed it right down. I'm hoping these wont make anything unstable, but will find out later as left it to do its buisness. Touchpads bit marmite for me as feels bit sensitive and with the intergrated clicks on the bottom, already performing gestures i kind of didnt intend...but hoping a few quick configs will sort it. Speakers are a bit poor as they are not very loud, but due to the thin nature of the base, prob to be expected. Clear enough and no distortion on full whack, but no bass element really so this will deffo be a headphone type jobby for music/films. The chargers a 2blade chinese plug type and although uk plug adaptors provided and works fine, i'm not too keen on this so will prob get correct output equiv soon enough. Really not played with this enough yet, but looking forward to it! My expectations were quite low for it, so this is currently doing really well :) guess time will tell
Cheers for the review, mine should arrive on Monday

Am tempted to buy this for basic browsing and email.
Why? Plenty of alternatives with real warranty.
Serious question, what is the main factor that makes you want this one?
It's cheap, has 4gb ram and 64gb storage. Anything around this price point from a UK vendor has half the ram and storage.
I vaped for 4 years and bought all my vape gear from gearbest, had one faulty item, they asked fo a video of the fault then replaced the item upon receiving the video.
If there's something that isn't a refurb from a uk vendor with equal specs for £120 then please share.

Yes build quality is not the best but it has a 14 inch 1080p matt screen, a new quad core Atom and 4GB/64GB instead of the 720p/2GGB/32GB older Atom or Celeron combos that many mainstream manufacturers offer at this price point. The Techtablets review is actually quite positive.
I'm on the fence only due to the guarantee issue, for some this might be worth a punt.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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 as well as the January Sales, too. Black Friday deals and discounts for Christmas may also bring better prices around the holiday season.
