About this deal

Appears to be a decent find for someone who is looking for a basic laptop to browse the internet, catch up on emails etc. Not the best processor or whatever, but not bad value for the RAM and SSD space that you get.

    This is a low end, low powered CPU which came out in 2019..

    Try to go for an Intel i3 (or AMD Ryzen 3) as a minimum.

    Celeron tend to be the weakest Intel CPUs, with Pentium the next up from that.

    Then it goes up i3, i5, i7 (and now i9)

    I would never buy a Celeron or Pentium laptop or desktop.

    Yep, agreed. Just posting as might be useful for someone wanting to carry out basic tasks, such as invoicing, browsing etc.

    N5030 CPU. Look at the deals posted yesterday, Samsung Galaxy Book2 with same specs but with i3 12th gen CPU is/was £299. Miles better deal.
    Also a Vivobook with Pentium Gold 7505 was posted for about £280. That's a better deal too, the CPU is close enough to i3 11th gen.
    There is a Lenovo ideapad 3 with only 4gb ram but the RAM can be upgraded. That's £250 and has a Ryzen 3 5300u CPU. Again much better deal.
    Not knocking down this deal, but IMO all the above mentioned laptops are a better buy. (edited)

    I don't think anyone could disagree with this, but it's an option for those who like Acer laptops and want to upgrade from an older model.
