Used to annoy me how people voted cold on sub £400 laptops because they aren't FHD. Now I just laugh.

Not a bad deal for a basic sub £300 laptop. It'll be able to play casual games and stuff like the sims 4 and championship manager.

Would I be correct in saying a year ago the pound was a lot stronger. This now means laptops/computers have gone up in price meaning last year's laptops are cheaper.
an i3 with SSD for £279 is a good deal if you're happy with the screen and many will be.

And at least Mr shouty hasn't turned up yet with hilarious uppercase antics

A year in tech terms is like a decade, so it was cheaper a year ago, when it should be massively cheaper a year later, surprised you can't understand that, pretty daft tbh
Refresh new deals every 30 mins within a month you will see a good deal on any type of product. That’s how to win. Asking for suggestions and pointers is the same as asking for a time machine. No one knows the next great deal. Refresh the page.

It doesn't work that way with entry level laptops. Inflation and other areas of the economy also play their part. Surprised you can't understand that. And a tech year being like a decade is one of the stupidest lines ever... very apt.

There's no excuse, a screen costs the manufacturer less than £10. There is only one reason why they don't put FHD in these low end laptops. Because if they put FHD in them there would be less demand for the higher end machines which are bigger profit margins.

You've answered your own question Sounds like you've got a good grasp of selling products to the public and catering for both ends of the spectrum. What sensible manufacturer wouldn't adopt this approach?

It happens with almost every product ever sold, the cheapest are less good than the dearest. often artificially so. Sometimes the product inside is identical but the lower priced version is crippled (like an i3 CPU is a crippled i5 or i7 even if the CPU is capable of running faster) or a washing machine that has a slower spin speed but inside has the same motor as the higher priced model.

If you don't think this is a good product you have the ability to vote it cold and not buy it. Others have the same choice in life.

The point is it's time to move on, 1080p should now be a basic standard and 4k should be on the more expensive models.

I'm not really disagreeing but can see this situation remaining some time until it's not cost effective to churn out lower resolution panels... hopefully won't be too long now as 4K is so prevalent now and people will perhaps start to demand more. There's no incentive for manufacturers to change unless customers stop buying them and clearly they're still selling them.
