I'm in the minority and like 1366 x 768 as it means Windows is rendered at 100%, meaning you don't have fuzzy looking legacy dialogue boxes. What concerns me more, is that it's probably a TN panel.

I couldn't confirm the panel type so I would assume you are probably correct.

I don't understand this - why is Windows rendered at 100% at a specific resolution?

I prefer SSD over a standard larger drive. Speed is such an improvement in my opinion over the space. Depends on your requirements though.

Or this one with 1TB? https://www.argos.co.uk/product/1340501


Same hard drive issue and a worse processor on that one. It really depends on your requirements though.

In the days of Windows 7 and before, dialogue boxes and icons were designed to be viewed at 72dpi and therefore looked about right at 100%, (or one intended pixel occupying one pixel on LCD the screen.) If you buy a Windows 10 laptop today, many are rendering at 125%. Most Windows 10 dialogue boxes look OK, but the legacy Windows 7 boxes and text, can look fuzzy. (as four intended pixels actually occupy 5 pixels on the LCD screen.)

Comparing an SSD to a HDD purely on size - are you joking? Like saying the Mondeo has more boot room than the Ferrari.
Ahhh it's out of stock!
