This is the best deal I could currently find on an i3/ssd laptop with a 15.6 inch screen. Please be so kind and comment if you are aware of any better offers

Very cheap and very well spec'd for the price.

As long as you're happy with the 1366 x 768 screen resolution I doubt you'll find better.

do u need the ssd? anything your going to be using this laptop for shouldn't need the loadings speeds. if u insist on it for £10 more you can get the hybrid version of this with 500gb hdd and and 8gb ssd. might sound like a tiny ssd but what it does is shift the data you use regularly to it. plus u get the added bonus of 4 times the memory

An SSD is much more shock resistant, silent too and will make the laptop much snappier to use than a hybrid.

Get the SSD you'll be able write in full words again

Wow. Super cheap for almost current gen i3 and ssd.Should make it nippy for office work and some online browsing, and ram super easy and cheap to upgrade if necessary. Have lots of heat!

BT shop is renamed DABS of old, wonder if their customer service still sucks.

I had a hybrid drive - pointless - put in true SSD and won't look back. Although if you want one is it here even cheaper at £257 laptopsdirect.co.uk/len…wcB

Couldn't agree more! I threw my retired desktop drive (OCZ Vertex 2) into a budget Celeron laptop (N2815/Passmark: 866 oO), now it flies. It makes an incredible difference to terrible computers.

Powerful processor & graphics what dose this mean any thing works in the byte section?.

Hi,
IT pro : been upgrading HDD to SSD on laptops/PCs for family and friends it gives almost any system a new lease of life, if its a new computer without SSD don't buy it, this is a good entry level computer for surfing, netflixing, spread sheets, email and all general use go for it, remember say no to SSHD (hybrid drives)

no no no no no please either tag your comments with [SARCASTIC] or do you own research as someone MIGHT actually take you seriously

I understand what an ssd does and I do know. the point I'm making is this is a capable budget laptop. your only gonna be using this for browsing, light media, word spread sheets etc. why do u need a ssd in a laptop that is already capable of doing that quickly and without effort. if it was an older laptop that struggled or a top spec laptop I'd expect and ssd but this just dosent need it. unless you specifically want it that is

if all it is going to be used for is working browsing and light media why would you sacrifice; boot times, load times, battery life and noise levels for more storage.

Would this be good for any type of gaming? I want to play games on Fightcade and my girlfriend wants to play Sims, but would it handle anything better? Something like Starcraft 2?

Your point is un-informative. You say that an old laptop or a top spec. would need an ssd. You then say that this is capable and does not.

Cause it needs ssd, any computer does.

"Your only gonna be using this for browsing, light media, word spread sheets etc"

How do you know what people will be using it for?

How good is the cpu compared to i5 6200u, I don't want to end up paying £200 more for that and full HD laptop + 4GB extra RAM because I don't think it's worth it

Plus 2% Quidco

Would've snapped this up straight away if the screen was 1080. Still great value. have some heat

Will this run minecraft?

​Can confirm its atrocious. No replies to any emails. Obscure contact details. Scripted tech support. I had to return a fulty mobo this month. After about a week of back and forth theyve arranged to take it but say ot will take a further 7 to 10 days. Im prepared for a bad service and its gonna get worse... Never again

It is a good deal OP. The only better deal I have seen was the i5 verion for just over £300 posted here a few months ago....

128gb SSD is just fine. The kids and the hipsters will still have 100gb free on this drive, because........this is 2016.

I just ordered this for a mate for his kid to use at college laptopsdirect.co.uk/sea…1=+ Exactly the same machine brand new with guarantee but the box has been opened £237.47 next day delivery is $9.95 and 2.02% cashback from TCB.

Size of the screen is pointless if the resolution is weak.

This is a basic laptop.
If you need that better cpu you'll want the extra ram and screen resolution.

5005U Passmark
6200U Passmark

The 6200 is quite a lot faster. It can turbo boost to 2.8GHz while the 5005U has a max of 2.0GHz.

My I3 PC used to take about a minute to load up before, stuck a ssd in it and it takes about 4 seconds. Makes windows so much more usable I wouldn't get a PC without one now

Cheers, I need a laptop to handle office work and coursework as well as obviously browsing. Wouldn't mind playing league of legends from time to time too. I think this should handle it.

All computers should have SSDs now, the difference is night and day, once you've experienced the benefits of an SSD you will not be able to go back to using a HDD wihout moaning your t*ts off...

I agree, SSD is the way forward now. SSD is a norm these days, because you can buy 1TB SSD for the price of 128GB when it just came out.

Nice

Your point is poorly articulated and your penultimate point makes no sense.
You'd expect an SSD on an old or a top spec laptop, but not one in between unless you want it?
Bonkers.
