I was thinking this but I suppose you're paying for the 8GB Ram and the SSD

Don't think I've seen any positive review of the Aspire 3 range.
Don't be fooled by the price, the processor is total garbage

exactly this, a few weeks ago similar spec laptops fitted with ryzens were standard on the argos website. Would estimate those ryzens about 5x the speed of these dreadful cpus.

Hi Mate, what tells you from that screen the CPU is rubbish? I bought an Acer before and it was rubbish and I want to avoid making the same mistake again. Thanks
I got an argos aspire 3 AMD A9 with 8gb RAM n 1tb hdd last week. Absolutely pants, am sending back. Like going back in time, really slow n poor screen. £290 on ebay site.

With any laptop you want to check the cpu benchmark score. Get the name of the cpu and add benchmark to it. Google will provide. So this laptop has a score of 2859 - cpubenchmark.net/cpu…204
Granted you do need to have an idea what a decent score is first but anything below 4500/5000 for hundreds of quid, every users needs are different but in regards to this, best not entertaining imo. Buying a laptop is an investment and no point skimping out tbh. You are going to be using this for few years. Take the money that you'd be putting in the swear jar using a clunker and put it towards something decent.
