hot! the refurb sells for £220 on ebay
Is this good for all round emailing, internet banking, skyping and just general web surfing? Thanks
Thank you OP. Able to get one ... I am not too sure how good it is as far the processor goes as the latest specs all speaks about i3, i5 and i7 etc ... Anyhow it suits my budget and went for it.

Where that sits in the low mid end: 1887

The CPU is not going to set the world on fire, especially at 6W TDP, but it will do fine for anyone wanting an average entry level large "laptop" for browsing, e-mail and other modest tasks. Great price for a 17" screen too.

Hot deal. In before "Only 1600x900"

Reviews say the CPU is weak, but a 17" screen is a big plus for those that need it.

The single thread rating is a very low 539.

fwiw, i3-4005u (1.70GHz) has single thread rating of 962.

Thank you. Looks ok for the price and spec. Just ordered so will see!
Should be great if all you do is browse the web and write the odd Word document, light work like that. Anything more and you're going to be struggling a bit.

Would it be able to handle youtube and Netflix?

Received mine this morning I unpacked it etc and used it for around 30 mins and it was very slow and was stop start all the time. I then decided that i was sending it back but thought id install Windows 10 to see if it makes any difference it took around 4 hours in total to update to windows 10 but now its brilliant its working perfect quick enough for what I need it for and the screen is huge seems a bargain at £199.99 so glad I never sent it back and gave it a chance
Available again

Windows 10 is a free upgrade until 29 July 2016.
It's just fine for what you want to use it for (and more). A real bargain IMO

It's capable of far more than that.
I think its OOS again...damn

I never quite know when people say its good for light stuff but not any good for more than that. what exactly do they mean by more than that? I mean if they mean gaming then yeah, obviously it wont be much good.

general households just want it for the general stuff anyway, like shopping, streaming, office documents etc.
Sorry, there are currently no sellers for this product
Tesco deals like this always go in and out of stock. Just keep the page and refresh it a couple of times a day if you really want it!
It's fine for general use. The only concern I would have is battery life
How would this cope with digital audio recording with a program like Presonus studio one or Pro tools etc ?

Spot on. Ripping and writing CDs & DVDs, iPlayer, youtube, even acting as a plex server if you wanted.
in fact it'd be useful for anything BUT gaming and heavy duty video/photo editing (and even this would work, albeit slowly)
