Don't forget you get an extra £10 off via O2 Priority.
Was looking to pick this up, but not a fan of the matte screen. Looks really washed out. Otherwise would have taken it as ticks all the other boxes.
Nice to see a 1080p screen
higher price quoted is obviously rubbish, would never have sold quantities at that price, but at last a basic spec machine at sub £400, and by basic i mean 15.6 inch screen, 1tb hard drive, 8gb ram, i5-5200u cpu, but with a FHD resolution, heat added

can't see reference to matt screen on the website spec's?
i have this. good machine. I found boot up times dramtically reduced after updating the intel graphics driver.
i saw one of these in pc world, the screen is pretty poor to be honested, really blurry and the viewing angles arent great either
has anyone got Linux running on this machine?
Asus have a software for screen calibration which in default sets out to super vivid (super turd more like).

I turned that off and got a much better picture, but saying that, this is a budget laptop so it's not fancy.

The screen has been critizised in reviews as very low contrast and sub-standard.
Hey, can I get you opinion on this laptop guys : http://www.very.co.uk/hp-pavilion-15-ab223na-intelreg-coretrade-i3-processor-8gb-ram-2tb-hard-drive-156-inch-laptop-iris-graphics-with-optional-microsoft-office-365-red/1600020530.prd

Got £30 of it so worked out at £320. The cpu seems on power with the i5 in the deal above.
Is this one to buy for minecraft
This was £400 a few months ago and I went to get one due to being a 1080p screen. After finding a store with the screen on I decided against it. The screen is horrendous. Its seriously bad.
saw this one in store, very good specs for the price BUT very very cheap TN panel with poor viewing angles and poor quality keyboard
Hi Guy's,

Need your help asap please, I'm thinking of purchasing a laptop now pls help me choose which one ?

1) Dell 15 5000 i3 4gb @ £259
2) Dell 17 (17 inch screen) 5758 i5 8gb windows 10 £330
3) Asus X555LA XX 8422H £369

Or you can recommend me a good reliable unit.
I will be using It for browsing/business (bit) etc, I'm thinking of going for number 2 Dell 17 Inch
p.s both dells are refurbished units with 1 years warranty.

Thanks again everyone
Ashy
Got a i7 version of thus reduced from John Lewis in for £440 so horses for courses.
down to 379 quid now, must be all the negative feedback about the display, suugest you pay over the internet and have it delivered, that way you can return within the 14 day cooling of period so long as everything is present and correct

have to assume this order over the internet and pay in store is a way for the knownothing people to avoid the 14 day cooling off period
Cancelled my order after reading about the screen reviews.

Nice to see a 1080p screen



Is this really 1080 though?

I was looking at it last week and only PC World/Curry's say it is 1080p. Everywhere else the exact same model is 1366 x 768.

I dont trust that it is full HD.

ASHYY - where are you getting those prices? They look respectably very good value.

Depends which spec options have been chosen:

https://www.asus.com/Notebooks/X555LA/

Seems that most are selling the cheapest option with the non-HD screen. Are the people saying the screen is bad sure that they saw the HD spec?
the same laptop was £369 a few weeks ago ?
Bad screen reviews
Been looking at this for my lad,debating to look elsewhere now I've seen comments regarding screen
I've got this laptop, very happy with it once i'd installed an SSD and put the 1TB HDD is the ODD bay. Granted the screen isn't the best but it's good enough for me.
Had a look at one in Currys today and thought the screen looked awful. All washed out, even tried to change the settings and it still looked poor. The non HD Toshiba next to it, looked better !

Thanks, Just bought no 2 and Just received It today (using It as I type !!!)

Seems good and the screen Is a gorgeous 17" Only negative at moment Is that It has a big pad and the buttons seem to have been squeezed together...... Every laptop has It's negative though so hopefully will get use to It !
