Hi all, first timer so go easy please...! Been looking for a budget laptop with good spec under £500. Ideally wanted I7 &/ or quad core, however this and another I will post seem the best I can find. Appreciate your feedback, good and bad, in advance.

Essential specs:

I5-4210u (dual core)
8gb RAM
500gb HDD
HD screen

Deal is with £75 cash back off the price of £499 for clarity. Can't seem to find many great deals about at the minute. Looking for my technophobe boss, got mine a year ago i7 quad core 8GB RAM for £499, the deal was on here and was HOT!!!

Essential Specs:

I5 - 4th gen (4210u) dual core
8gb RAM
500gb hdd
HD screen
Windows 7 (not sure whether good or bad?!). Not a fan of 8 myself, many aren't by the looks, but alleges to be more stable and secure? I only use the desktop anyway.

Toshiba L50-B-1NZ has same CPU and 8gb RAM with 750gb hard drive, likely to be the same chipset, all for £399 on Amazon. Was £349 on countless lightning deals before Christmas.

Cheers Grant, been really disappointed with the deals out there at the minute, just trying to find the best at the minute. You're right, specs are as you say, however I think Lenovo is a more respectable brand in laptops than Toshiba.

Cold from me, the spec is quite poor for the price. There have been a few better deals posted recently that are still active.

Add the extra ram and it's a faster machine. With twice the storage while still being cheaper.

Same applies with this one

A little bit more but full HD screen with larger SSHD drive and faster too.

And another

Finally I will leave this as the main suggestion for this sort of budget range. Vastly faster with everything else and a dedicated graphics card all £449 for the i5 version, £499 for the i7 option.

Thanks for the reply, Astec, much appreciated.

Most of these I have seen and have either expired or out of stock. Can see that stock issues may have changed, but the last one is indeed a goer! Shortlisted and favourite as it stands. For my boss to use for work, running business applications/ programmes etc, thanks again.
