The weak point is the 15.6" 1366x768 screen. That resolution is fine for 11/12" screens. The point of a bigger screen can display more. This can't. So why carry the bulk of a much bigger device for no benefit unless you have eyesight issues?

Ex-business Thinkpad X220 is still the machine to beat.

Bargain in at present prices
Just to make myself clear this laptop is very good value for money as a general purpose laptop, even better if you have skill to upgrade to SSD and add a further 4gb ram.

Anyone with experience of xsonly? Seen a i7 15.6” asus refers for £599
Bought a whole bunch of Cashmere scarfs off their eBay store 2-3 years ago. Everything came like new, in original packaging. Must have been unwanted returns from one of the upmarket department stores.

Never mind, that was xsitems

It's ok, but trawl ebay a bit for smaller sellers with refurbs. I picked up a warrantied Grade A HP 15 BS model for £240 off there just a few weeks ago. It's not that hard either, I had seen a lot beforehand for 250-300 and just dropped on this.

i5 8250U which is a very fast CPU compared to older models like this, 1080p screen, 4GB RAM and 1TB HDD. Lot of machine for under £300 and upgradeable with an M.2 SATA slot.

Seriously consider a RAM upgrade if you have only single channel on a laptop. It's a bigger boost than you realise if you only have single channel one 4GB module. You get extra RAM (obvious) but you also get a big increase in memory bandwidth and that also considerably increases the performance of the integrated graphics as it shares system memory. It's a triple whammy and no brainer.
Looking for a decent laptop for my Daughter for school, would be willing to try a refurb, any recommendations?

Save up and buy a laptop with a better screen. you will be constantly scrolling up and down for everything.
The one thing you will be looking at all the time is what you cannot upgrade.

Bought a refurb Zenbook from them before. Excellent service and mark free. I bought this for the folks. Compared to what they have this should be amazing.....and cheap

Thank you for taking the time. Not looking at this machine. Something quicker/better.

Been a long time since I bought a computer. Not sure what to look for. Only wanted for surfing/office/iTunes really

Forgot to mention... make sure you're getting something with a UK keyboard. I bought one with a US keyboard a long time ago and it was great until the thing needed a new motherboard. It turned out not only was the keyboard US, but the entire model was US specific and it was going to be to hard to source a motherboard or trace the UK equivalent.

Thank you again. Could you make any recommendations for a spec. As I say been a long time since I bought a laptop. Tech has changed so much and I can’t get my head around i5 or i7. I think my current machine is at least 8 years old and is slow as the M25 on a bank holiday Monday in the rain with an accident and diesel spill

Who's going to replace a motherboard on a £200 laptop
The machine in question was worth rather more than £200.

Chromebooks are good; but if in need of word go on Amazon and search warehouse deals (it's its own section) for a HP Stream (bit like a Chromebook but it runs windows so it's Microsoft's version to Chromebooks). Saw some on there for £120-130. Ideal for school use and have emmc (think that's spelt right) which is a bit like an SSD but isn't as it's small, but not like she's going to be gaming on it. Get her Spotify and chrome installed on it and off she goes.
I would buy her a data stick to go with though but definitely for school, stream is perfect. Also don't worry about virus protection - the windows one will be fine as otherwise it'll bloat the computer (and they can be expensive).

If you're open to less known brands. Teclast F5 or F6pro Decent specs for most activities and very good build quality. 8gb ram & 125gb ssd.
The foldable F5 is about £260 and the F6 pro about £100 more. You'll pay at least double for well known brands with similar specs
Ok, stay away from Asus. Go for a Dell or HP. let me know your budget and I will recommend

I bought one and fitted an ssd, great laptop for the money. Thanks for the link

Hi I'm looking for a refurbished laptop for my son 15",he has an HP that's 4 years old that is slow here's his old laptop 35512137-XqVwh.jpg,so want an improvement on that,would like an ssd,is there anything you could recommend please,he does play games but I haven't got gaming laptop money so just something well made and nippy would be fine as he is in his last year of school and would be good to have something newer for college,I have £350 budget for refurbished laptop

Edited by: "phantom1973" 6th Oct 2018
Ok, give me till tomorrow and I will post some feedback. I notice his old HP had an AMD processor, an update will be a machine with an Intel processor, possible 8GB ram, 64bit OS machine and def a Win 10
since you want a 15inch, my recommendation is a Dell Precision 7510, this is a powerful machine and will make your son happy. The price is not £350 but you can get it for like £500. Get this and sell his old machine. A couple of these are on fleasbay for around 800 but an offer of 500 might do it.

Its HP Pavilion 15inch but also £499
