I almost went for the i5 integrated graphics version in the John Lewis clearance for £650, but could not bring myself to settle for rose gold (pink). Had a look about and £60 more for an i7 and dedicated graphics in grey looks like a good deal to me.

Nice deal! There were a few similar on eBay and with the 20% off eBay code looked a steal but this looks like a good straight forward deal
Description says quad core, but it’s two core only. HP with quad core is around £750.

Thanks Varaha, will no doubt be good for some but at nearly 1kg heavier and 15'6 inch screen it won't work for me
i7-7500u is the exact cpu model linked. FYI if you could add to description that would make others looking jobs easier.
Really don't understand coupling a relatively expensive graphics device to a U class CPU

WHY? To answer my own question battery life & weight I guess but then adding a 940m makes very little sense...

Much better with the HQ CPU's. I got the MSI PL62 from Ebuyer for £598
I5 7300HQ
1TB HD
MX150 Nvidia graphics (slightly better than the 950m and better power handling)

I then added a 240gb M2 SSD for £50.

I get your point completely. For me size and weight was the priority with reasonable processor, the gpu is just a bonus.
About 150 too much, not going to be taking advantage of what's on offer!

Thanks James, do you mean across the whole market or just this deal? If you know of similar deal for £150 less at this size and weight with atleast an i5 please let me know as I can still cancel oh and not rose gold aswell

That is the problem with many of the comments here - they focus too much on the specs. OK so you can definitely get a higher spec for a similar price if you go for the HP mentioned above - but that is a 15.6" laptop that is much larger and heavier than this one.

If you are looking for a compact 14" that weighs only 1.2kg then this is a good deal. If processing power is a priority then look elsewhere.
This might be the lightest and good priced i7 right now? the other half has the i5 version and its so thin its unreal! very tempted to grab this...

amazing! I want it for work and that spec is perfect for some dev work just pop another 8GB and that thing is flying
Thanks to the OP for posting this, as we took the plunge and first impressions are that it's a great laptop. The extra bonus feature is the fingerprint reader, which wasn't listed in the spec and that the UX410 probably does not have. The downside I was expecting was fan noise, to be combatted by installing NBFC, but so far it is silent.

In fact, I only saw this deal from being cross posted on the JL UX410 deal. This deal didn't even make 100 degrees so I would normally have missed it and I don't know why so low.

I had similar overpriced comments when I posted a similar (but not as good as this) UX430 deal in August, but I don't know what else comes close. Something thin and light can be worth paying a premium for. This laptop is ~£1k elsewhere and the Dell XPS13 seems close but is £1k with voucher and only close in the outlet.

The 10% off Windows laptops from AO s back on, but this model now seems to be OOS. Glad we bought when we did.

No worries at all, glad it benefitted someone

I thought it was a good deal too and I am very happy with mine.
