Great price for them specs. Heat from me
Does it have usb c port s ?
There are deals for this spec or similar spec and pricing for full HD screens.
There's other deals posted on here before below £320 that were voted cold, don't understand the difference in voting
This laptop is dire. I returned one a few weeks ago and wished I read reviews first. Runs like a snail was horrendous

Using a 2013 i3 lappy here, win 10 pro, 4gb ram and 60gb ssd. Boots like a ninja and is absolutely nippy for all web and local file use. Perfectly fine for office locally and Google docs online. Don't understand the naysayers either. And no. It can't touch my desktop for everything else (plus usb 2 is a downer).
Any PC with a HDD sucks, you need to whack an SSD in there ASAP
This is the cheapest laptop with dedicated gpu, it can easily play league of legends, add an ssd for speed.
Shame it’s 768... not usable tbh, it would have to be 150 before I buy it.

Of course it's "useable", don't be a drama queen.

I have a 15.6 laptop from years ago.... all the pixels.... Even 1080p is bad enough.

Although at a £100 extra investment, you may be better off buying something like the Lenovo Ideapad 520s for £429 through LaptopOutlet listed on their own website as well as their eBay outlet. There are probably other competitors or better deals although I am listing this as an example.

ebay.co.uk/itm…HRA

The full HD display will make a difference, personally it has reduced eye strain for me as text appears to be more clear. If you are on a strict budget, this may not be an option for you, although it is a good idea to have and you wouldn't look back if you have used one previously.

Arguably it is at a higher cost, but it would be more beneficial. The 128gb SSD is one of the major factors contributing to speed, surely you can do a few tweaks with a laptop on a traditional 5400rpm HDD such as by hibernating instead of shutting down as restarting a PC with a traditional hard drive takes up more time. I have come across laptops with a traditional drive running Windows 10, boot speeds are a good 3+ minutes, even if nothing is installed, an SSD would allow a PC to boot within under 30 seconds. Loading programs will be easier, there would be less wait times as the read/write speeds would be high, traditional hard drives have a read/write speed of around 50-100 mb/s whereas an SSD can perform around 550 mb/s read/write dependent on the drive used. I would steer away from conventional hard drives as manufacturers are adding in high capacity drivers but at a slower rate as it is cheaper to do so at manufacturing than providing an SSD drive at a similar price.

The RAM is also a factor, 4GB of ram is not enough with Windows and the programs commonly used such as Chrome, doing so will lead to the page file being used more and this would be a slower form of memory as it uses memory from the traditional hard drive in order to store data when the ram memory exceeds it's capacity.

Although it can be argued you could achieve some of the above points yourself (excluding the ability for full HD). You could upgrade the ram module yourself if you find yourself needing an upgrade although if the modules are enclosed inside you run the risk of damaging components if you are not experienced and will void warranty. Same with an SSD, this can be done but will require disassembling a laptop in order to do so, leading to a warranty void. Although SSD prices have fallen again such as the Integral 120GB P Series 5 being £24.99 on MyMemory at the moment, this provides 560mb/s read and 540mb/s write so it would instantly provide a performance boost if you were currently using a traditional hard drive and were on a strict budget.

Or maybe they just dont see spending £330 on a PC with only 4gb of ram is a hot deal......

Each to their own ...!
Stick an SSD in and for the love of God carry out a clean install of Windows. Anyone who uses the off the shelf preinstalled OS is going to suffer.

Yeah it’s like 60-80 quid to upgrade it and that again for a 256gb ssd...just spend that money upfront and get 1080p too

completely different laptop and its not an investment and no argument, itts more expensive
Lenovo devices can have trouble starting - just google it and see how many reports you get. Both Lenovo products I have had start up issues, however the ASUS I got for someone else is still going well after 5 years, although they did get a new battery. Personally wouldnt touch Lenovo again and definitely not in preference to Asus.
I bought the Lenovo 520S with 8Gb ram and 256gb SSD on a recent "unmissable" Amazon deal that was only around for an hour or two, and it has already gone back. Not particularly faster for web browsing and Office than my 5yr old Asus low spec model, and attrocious battery life (less than 4 hrs). They all have their pros and cons !

I am providing a suggestion/exemplar, not directing everyone to blindly buy it, doing your own research is essential. Correct, it is a different laptop, no argument with that. I am providing a guideline based on my own opinion with what I look for in terms of specs on a laptop. Additionally, it depends on your usage, to some it can be an investment contributing towards their work/business etc and you are investing your own money with products such as a laptop so I would consider it an investment for myself. This could be different for you. Personally I look for laptops within the specs I listed above as a guideline as productivity can be affected with slower laptops due to a waste of time with launching programs, freezes etc. To others, they may be satisfied with the laptop posted on here if they have time to spare to use a laptop with lower performance. This will all depend on what you intend to use it for, either for work or leisure as well as how much you can financially spend.

Valid points. As I stated earlier, I am merely providing a suggestion based on some of the spec, not focused on the laptop or brand itself. With every deal posted on here I would heavily suggest doing thorough research before blindly buying as every laptop will not be tailored to each individuals preferences and it may have future issues other users may have experienced. Obviously each laptop will have benefits/drawbacks and there are chances of receiving a faulty unit. That is what warranty and return policies are there for.

Nothing to do with updates though with this laptop, it’s just a bad bad model. Not fit for purpose
