Acer Aspire E5-575 Core i5-6267U, Full HD, 1TB HDD, 8GB RAM £529.97 @ SaveOnLaptops

Found 21st Oct
An unusual spec, with a processor that falls between the i5-7200u and the i7-7500u on benchmarks, but with Iris Pro graphics ie Intel’s top built-in graphics solution. Not as powerful as a dedicated graphics card, but should run rings around other integrated graphics laptops.

Detailed spec:
Intel Core i5-6267U Dual Core Processor
15.6” Full HD Screen
Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64-bit
8GB DDR4 RAM
1000GB HDD
DVD Rewriter
Integrated Iris Graphics

Hopefully a sign that manufacturers are getting rid of "spinning discs" . This would be a £600 + Laptop with an SSD .

No SSD? Strange choice given the Intel Iris inclusion.

It looks likely that you can add a second HDD to it so you could stick a SSD in and it would only just break the £600 level if you chose a 256GB SSD.

The reference below is to a similar model. Please do your own checks before relying on the information.

And for comparison, the i5-7200u

And the i7-7500u (it’s not that far off)

I’m bemused why this is going cold. Unless there’s a secret source of cheap high spec laptops somewhere. In the current market, this machine seemed to offer the best power/value tradeoff in the mid-range segment that I could find, having checked a couple of dozen of the usual suspects (Aria, Novatech, CCLOnline, Box, Amazon, PC World, eBuyer, Misco, Scan, Tesco, Asda, Argos, SOL, etc.)

Lack of SSD on the 'above £500' mark is I think what kills this on-site. Most people look at the title and mark it on that. Once it has a few cold votes, people just follow the trend.

Also, Iris Pro graphics were good when they were released in 2014 (got mine in a Steambox) and it ran stuff like Battlefield 4 at 720p, but it's not going to do much nowadays compared to good integrated graphics solutions. As speculator showed.

I'm pretty sure Speculator was joking, as the processor in that machine alone is > £300.

Yeah the lack of SSD will annoy and cause cold votes but as said above, once it goes cold more will follow the trend and vote cold. I am sure many members on here just vote cold for the helll of it.

Still, having said all that, I wouldn't buy it, and I'm in the market for almost exactly this type of thing - A solid mid-range laptop that can play basic games, without being a gaming laptop.

Intel Iris 550 integrated graphics have an average Passmark of 1,650.

Intel HD 620 integrated graphics (built into processors like the i5-7200u and the i7-7500u) have an average Passmark of just 1,152.

That's a significant difference. You're sacrificing less than 10% raw CPU power vs the i7-7500u to gain 30% extra graphics speed.

Depends what you want to do with the laptop, but the trade-off still looks good to me.

If you prefer the i7-7500u though, you can get the HP 250 G5 with Full HD, 8 GB RAM and 1TB HDD for £549

Either way, an extra £60-80 for an SSD and you have a great little machine.

You did well there, a very decent spec for £499 but that's a fairly unusual deal (or price error?) so may not see something so good for another 6 months or more, luck of the draw of course.

Congrats on getting an amazing deal. Reading through that thread, looks like the vast majority of orders were cancelled. But a deal’s a deal even if it lasts mere minutes!
