Great price, although you may want to increase the RAM a bit from 4GB.

4GB is ok; waiting for the "not HD so cold" brigade

Passable but pretty sub-par in every area, not sure why anyone would spend hundreds on this.
Lukewarm.

They have a 6GB machine for £199.99, albeit with an AMD A6-6310 processor. Both good deals in their way I'd say.

Well it is more than one hundred, so it is "hundreds", don't really see how you can argue against that.
The screen and RAM are pretty sub-par, graphics card won't go far. I wasn't trying to be bitchy I just think £239.99 is a lot of money to most people for something lacking in areas this crucial. Everyone has their own opinion and I suppose this might suit a specific type of basic user.

Would you care to post a deal with a better RAM, screen, and graphics card for a similar price point?

decent price for this pick up an additional 4gb to slot in (less than 30 quid) /// a proper wee bargain

Nope, because I wouldn't spend this little on a laptop unless the deal was insanely good, as there's no point. You're better off saving for something that isn't way outdated before you even buy it.
Why are you being so salty? I'll give you some heat if you're going to lose sleep over it.
Also you didn't explain to me your logic behind £239.99 not being "hundreds", I'm curious for an explanation as you've potentially stumbled upon a loop-hole that breaks mathematics.

It's not my deal, but I was defending the OP's post as I thought it was good value for an i5 and the specs are similar to the majority of laptops that people buy I'd suggest.

"hundreds" implies many multiples of hundreds in common speech, not just two. Take a look in the Oxford English Dictionary.

Not sure what you lot are arguing about but common usage of 'hundreds' of pounds, would normally mean a lot more than two hundred pounds.

@Remitto - you're not getting a Haswell i5 / 4gb / 1tb laptop for this price anywhere else - it's a good deal. Just a shame it's purple!

Edited by: "Picard123" 14th Jun 2015

Good processor for this price, the average user wouldn't need more RAM. If it turns out you do, then you gotta pry it open. If you're going to do that then I would install an SSD at the same time! Normally would be looking at 350 plus for this kinda spec new, and none in that range that I've seen have full HD screen and dedicated graphics, you're looking over 400.

By denotation, yes. By mathematics no. The dude referred to the dictionary so a denotation is what I gave. Either way £239.99 is hundreds.
Edited by: "Remitto" 14th Jun 2015

Currently I am not aware of a better deal around these specs but still I would advise people interested to think twice.

Apart from the processor this machine is not very good and the type of people for whom this laptop is best suited don't really need this type of processor.

In my humble experience screen quality/resolution is far more important even for a basic user as this is what you will be using 95% of the time the machine is on whereas you will be maxing out the processor far less than 5% of the time...

4GB of ram is ok, again if you take into account an average person this type of machine is intended for.

1TB hard drive is hardly important these days, I would heartily recommend swapping it out for an ssd at earliest convenience it will improve the experience massively. It does add some value though I guess.

There are some really good deals around here and unless you are in a terrible hurry I would wait for one, this is not in that category and hence my cold vote.

Definitely, he's from the full HD brigade and if he can show us one with all he's going on about for much less than 400 or this price, then please do. The i5 processor will help keep this running smooth, as opposed to a celeron which you might expect at around the 200 mark that would be sluggish in comparison.

The only advantage that laptop has is more RAM, and a better GPU, the AMD CPU's are not even close to the Intel CPU's as much as I don't want to be the case.

You essentially are paying more for something that will for most day to day tasks will perform worst. The RAM alone does not make a laptop. You have to look at other componants, and RAM is something that can easily to upgraded, the CPU inside a laptop is not as easy or cheap.

I'd rather spend that £35 on more RAM for this Laptop than get the one you posted.

I have set up 4 laptops for friends over the past years two of which were in similar category as this. (All found via this site).

For example Lenovo Z70 from Amazon.de for bit less than 300£ came with full hd screen (although admittedly not one of the better panels but still it beats my laptop's out of the water), it had a Haswell i3 and even a dedicated graphics card (admittedly not a very good one...).

About Celeron being sluggish, you don't know what you are talking about, most of them are i3's stripped down from some software acceleration such as hyperthreading which gives some improvement but much less than it seems.

No processor made in the last couple of years will feel sluggish in normal use if coupled with a decent hardware such as an ssd.

The only good. thing about this laptop is an Haswell in, everything else is poor/mediocre and unless you upgrade it to an ssd you will have a poor experience using it...

I wouldn't pay £35 more for that HP. Neither that nor the Acer are gaming machines, so what's the point of paying more for something that isn't going to offer anything meaningfully more in everyday use? The A8 CPU is also less powerful that the Haswell i5. I agree that laptops are more about that just components. If anything, that HP gets a bit of a slating in the reviews:

Someone asked me to give an example of where you can find a much better machine under 400£ and I gave an example of under 300£ (admittedly past tense).

If this was under 200£ it would get a hot vote, this way it is a used machine for 240£, and mine mentioned above was new. IF your budget allows you 240£ but doesn't 300£ then yes go for it, but even so I would wait for a better deal. Simply look at what you get for 240£ (and bare in mind it is used...) and what you get for this.

That i5 is pushing the price up by at least 50£ (and more likely closer to 100 than 50) and for a person satisfied by the remaining specs I am 99% sure the i5 will be a waste of money,...

I can look at the price as long as you want and it won't change my opinion, which is you can do better for the similar amount of money...

"coupled with decent hardware such as an ssd". Not everyone will want to upgrade. I've used this laptop as it is, and it performed fine in the brief time using it. It booted up in under 20 seconds with the stock install too.
