Like for like specs... £160 cheaper.

Going for a 15.6" screen and you can make that £200 cheaper for the same specs.
According to the reviews the Vostro has a terrible screen and bad battery life. According to reviews on the ASUS the screen is gorgeous.

That’s a Hot for me

It's not a bad deal but at that price I'd be looking for a Dell XPS 13 on the outlet.
Vostro isn't as good as this laptop, no USBC, screen, finish, slender form factor etc.

Still not a good deal though, was looking about 7 months ago and this was selling for £660. Possibly the best price right now, but in terms of value for money, it's well off the mark imo.

This the 14" screen version, launched not too long ago not the 13" Zenbook.

Its the lowest price I have seen this, still going to £800+ from other sellers.

Seems to be a lot of cold votes without reason or comparative alternative.
The Vostro wasn't a recommendation, just highlighting that for the hardware included, this isn't a great deal.

Personally I'd pick up a 15.6" with better hardware for less money if I were on the lookout for a new laptop.
Buying a new laptop seems such a difficult task, knowing what is decent for what you need. Trying to find one with a decent battery time that my son can play fortnite on and that I can use to upload videos to Youtube - My aging HP DV7 can't handle anything lately, even though upped the ram to 8gb and replaced with hard drive.
For that sort of cash, I would want an 8th Gen chip.

Decent battery life and being able to play fornite are opposing desires. To play competitive games you'd be looking for a laptop with a GPU, but by having a GPU the idle power draw increases so battery life worsens even when not playing games. Uploading videos to youtube isn't a hard task, your phone can do it.

Time is cheap, money is not so do your research.

Personally I dont find comparing laptops just by spec very helpful. The most important aspects of a laptop to me are its screen quality and its overall portability - weight and size. (Although I do generally decide on a bare minimum spec for performance. An i5 CPU, 8gb RAM and 256GB SSD is the minimum spec that I would want to buy.) Many, many laptops seem to have very poor screens with very poor contrast.

This Asus ZenBook is a good price for such a slim and light weight laptop. It also has a very good quality display. I am considering one for my daughter.

If being slim and light and having a good screen are not so important then there are many other laptops like the Dell Vostro that will have similar specs for less money. Alternatively, if you are willing to have a 15.6" laptop then you can save even more. Personally, I would pay much more to have a 14" laptop than a 15.6" with identical specs but more bulk/weight. Horses for courses though as some people prefer the larger 15.6" screen.
