    What is it you are going to use the laptop for? I was looking around a similar price (or a bit lower), but was looking for a dedicated gfx card to play a few old titles and this looked good ebuyer.com/726…011

    everyday use nothing specific.
    I do not know what to say.

    Such a bad deal.

    i5, 4GB, non-FHD, 1TB SSHD, on-board graphic card, consumer laptop, why is it £400?

    You normally get this specs £300 for consumer laptop, £330 for business laptop.

    Over-priced by £100.

    Not good.

    920M is not good. Why waste money on such a low end dedicate card which is not much improvement for the on-board GPU?
    Sorry OP but agree with huangxq2, not a good spec for the money at all. Have been looking for a laptop for around this price for a friend and there are many better options available
    Average for the money as others have said - I would look at Dell Outlet for value machines and you can get something better suited (e.g. better graphics, RAM, HDD, etc.).

    Go with this one at £320, £290 after cashback. business laptop, HP Probook 455 G3, A10-8700P, 8GB, 1TB, AMD Radeon R6.

    http://www.notebookcheck.net/Carrizo-in-Review-How-does-AMD-s-A10-8700P-Perform.147654.0.html

    AMD Radeon R6 is best out all three.

    So you get more RAM, better graphic card, better quality (business laptop) for 320, or £290 after cashback.

    And you have the option to add an extra M.2 SSD, keep both SSD and HDD at the same time.

    Hybrid HDDDVD is a a typo.



    I think it was a space issue when he copies the specs.

    It meant to say
    Hybrid HDD, DVD Rewriter.


    Hybrid HDD the term is not normally used, but we can work out it means SSHD, i.e Solid State Hybrid Drive.

    I posted so many links directly reply to your question. You really do not need to ask the exact same question again.

    If you think your £400 is good deal, just go for it. At the end of the day, it is your money on the line.

    No, it has DVD-RW

    The money saved, can buy much bigger SSHD, or buy M.2 SSD and have both.

    I cannot believe you are using SSHD to defend a £80/110 price difference, not to mention everything else.

    Why do you not talk about bigger RAM, better GPU.

    Wrong again.

    It has been around since last year.
