Looks pretty good. Good looking laptop with decent specs for general use (I. E. Not gaming). Not sure about the price for this sort of specs, but does look quite tempting.

Will wait for techies to put the tech to the test for price.

Ballicom are reputable. Price is pretty good for the model. I'd only say it's a reasonable price for the spec unfortunately.

I will bite at £400

If you shop around there are much better rates for S&M antics; so I hear from my local MP.

For £699, you can get the model with the i5-8250u from Argos. That seems like a much better bet because it’s a quad-core CPU so it will run rings around this machine in multithreaded applications.

For this sort of money, I'd be tempted to hunt down an Air 13 with MX150 GPU.

For example:

Yup I'd be looking at the new 8250u processor for this kind of money especially given the claimed around 30-40% speed increase

for £20 more this is a much better value... saveonlaptops.co.uk/9S7…tml

bigger screen, much better cpu, has a actual graphics card and many more ports!

It's a completely different class of laptop so like comparing a Mini with a Focus.

Nobody shopping for a 14" semi-ultra portable, is going to buy a very heavy 2.6kg 15.6" 2" thick desk based laptop. You're also going to have to immediately upgrade the SSD on that MSI for any sort of gaming.
