Great laptop for the price, hot.

I know its cheap but if it would have had an i3 instead of a sillyrun processor and been £30 dearer it would have still been a bargain and much more desirable

Whilst I agree that it's worth paying more for something better than a Celeron, most are fine for general browsing and Office programs. This has a Celeron N2840 which should be just fine for basic tasks like that.

But if everything you do is web based, then a Chromebook will give you much better performance for the same money

All gone for the time being at £209... Says more on the way. Great reviews for this. I'm in the market for either a Chromebook or Windows notebook but can wait! Expensive month already...

How would this compare to an acer chromebook c720 or toshiba chromebook 2? Would primarily be used for online browsing and additionally for watching media files, maybe some office work

I'll do fine, wont be fast at some of the more complex operations such as content aware fill, but will be perfectly adequate for handing images with a few dozen layers.

I was using Photoshop on a Pentium 60MHz back in the day, was OK

Purchasing this over a chromebook...

This has larger hdd and will have no issues with office docs

So...is there any reason to get a chromebook, what advantage does a chromebook have over this lappie?

Can anyone recommend a laptop around £250 which will handle Sims 4? Thanks

I ordered this from tesco a couple of days ago for £209. Hasn't arrived yet but seems like a great price. Small and lightweight with 1TB hard drive and 4GB ram with windows.

Celeron? Not a chance!!

Celeron? Not a chance!!



No winner declared Too close to call is the verdict of this automated CPU comparison

cpuboss.com/cpu…10U

There is not a huge difference between the low end i3 and Celeron part in this unit. Are you shooting RAW images on a DSLR or are these photos from your phone / compact camera in JPEG? How many photos (to the nearest 1000) do you plan to edit, and roughly what is the size of the images? Is there a specific application you want to edit photos with or will you use free software like Picassa?

Worth noting that Photoshop "speed" is down to memory, I/O and CPU this unit with an SSD will work well for the first 2 and around 10% to 15% slower than an i3 the SSD will outperform any Hard disk.

Also note the Celerons from 2002 are not the same was the new chips. Even the i3 i5 is largely for less sophisticated users as some i3 are faster than some i5.

If you plan to run complex scripts on PS and shoot RAW this might not be the best unit for you main workhorse but if you shoot JPEG or RAW on hacked Camera firmware this might be fine if you are on a budget and need a cheap viewer / backup laptop.

Sure this is a TN panel and resolution is ok, but it is a lot better than the screens on DSLRs and Canon and Nikon both do great camera control / viewfinder software which will work fine with this unit again the SSD will help with IO

I love the Chromebook (I have the Acer 720) but go for this if you can live with the extra weight and slightly shorter battery life.

Win8.1 is still superior for watching media eg. H264 / AC3 etc and has the rather excellent VLC which isn't available on ChromeOS.

LOL. Not for £250.

Any suggestions on what's the best laptop I can get for less than about £300, including Office?

Thanks!

It's Bay Trail Celeron (ie Atom!) and architecture as well, which means slower than Haswell Celeron. Only real drawback of this machine, but then again it is only £200...

The Lenovo with Cash back from Ebuyer £199 in delivery then there is 50 Cashback (Lenovo UK) + £2 TopCashback hotukdeals.com/dea…465

Office comes bundled on some tablets so it might be cheaper to buy a tablet £70 just for Office. There are discounted educational versions of office and free On line versions from Microsoft which are surprisingly good but require you to be on line to use unlike the equivalent Google Docs / Sheets.

With the money left you could buy an SSD and or an internal caddy for the Lenovo to replace the Supplied DVD writer with a second HD / SSD

I think the annual subs are too costly as there are tablets around that include the licence for less!
