Thanks for that! Was looking something basic but half decent for my dad. He'll mainly use it for internet, streaming vid/music etc, nothing too hectic. Win 10 and big(ish) screen were my main priorities, followed by speed and screen quality.
Anything else out there I should be looking at for around the same price?
Thanks again, Al.

Bit cheaper here and I prefer the red

It sounds like your Dad won't be saving much data on the SSD so looks a good choice overall. I always buy Acers, good laptops I think.

Very is out of stock for a few days but sometimes have introductory offers and Topcashback up to 2.1% available.

If you or your Dad have FlexPlus accounts with Nationwide you can get an extra year's warranty if bought in the account holder's name.

Thanks for that, is 'very' a reliable place to buy laptops from? Also, do you have to sign up to some sort of credit system with them to pay?

Thanks, Al.

Not with Nationwide I'm afraid but cheers for the info, I'll have a look and see if there are any intro offers with very. I'll have to pay £10 delivery (to N Ireland) with saveonlaptops so I'll check very's delivery terms too. Cheers Mark.

Good spec but budget Acers are almost as bad as budget Toshiba's. Just looking at the lid hinges makes makes me feel uncomfortable. No vote.

Cool. As it's for my dad and he'll mainly just keep it at home in one room, I'm not too concerned about the build/durability. Value for money is what I'm mainly concerned with, hate to buy something only to find a much sweeter deal the next day. Thanks for getting back to me.

True, although it may be worth thinking about Saveonlaptop's £52.49 3 year warranty if you do go with them.

Few lower end laptops have SDDs unfortunately, and those that do are often HPs (which I would avoid). SDDs make the machines much faster, so the Acer deal looks a good one.

It looks like Very sold this laptop for £289.99 a few months back: hotukdeals.com/dea…496

Aye, saw that too. I blame brexit for current prices! Can't seem to find anything that gives more bang for your buck.

Think I'll just go ahead and get it from very, £10 cheaper there and easier for delivery. Will prob go for their 3 year warranty too, £39.99, £12.50 cheaper than saveonlaptops.

Thanks again Mark.
