I would highly advise against that HP.

This has an aluminium body, the HP plastic
This is 8gb ram and easy to upgrade, the HP has 4gb and very hard to upgrade and invalidates your warranty
This has USB C with power delivery, can charge from a usb c cable the HP doesn't
This is easy to add SSD, the HP is not and again invalidates warranty.

There is more but that's a start

Scratch and dent and only 1 available. It might be better to pay a few quid more for a certified refurbished.

Nice deal for a cheap laptop, its downside I think would be its screen that is generally rated poorly. See: notebookcheck.net/Del…tml

It also lacks a SSD.

But usually people prefer a good CPU over everything else.

One thing I found interesting was the i5-8250U is way more sensitive to thermals that the last generation, probably accounting to its dynamic clock frequency range.

The lenovo 320s with the same CPU had bad performance despite using this CPU. At least this model does better.

Fair enough but upgrading the RAM and adding a M.2 SSD isn't hard. The reason I made my comment is for people who want to buy new instead of a refurb (Me personally I don't mind buying refurbs).

You can't stack codes with Dell so just choose the best single one available at the time.

Does this student discount apply for junior school students too or just college students with email account. I need to buy one for my child.
There are some great deals on their outlet store at the moment.

You can get this for £598

FWIW - I bought one of these on the black friday deal for £399 - the screen was so terrible that I sold it on ebay. You couldn't get a viewing angle where half the screen wasn't washed out. I would only get one now if it had the IPS screen, no matter how good the CPU was, it was a miserable experience trying to use it. Of course YMMV
Probably a load of these as businesses return them due to lack of win 7 support.

I used to love my Toshiba. Best laptop I ever had by far. Although it was a touch on the heavy side. Having said that, we're talking a good 10 years ago now.

Not sure why you say that, I have a Dell 5570 and an running Windows 7 on it dual boot with Windows 10. Some of the software I use at work won't run on Windows 10 hence the need but I got all the drivers etc with no issue.

I added an SSD to an Inspiron 15 recently and it is doable but it definitely wasn't easy. Laptops aren't like they used to be, they really aren't design to be taken apart upgraded now. It used to be 4 screws on older Dell laptops to slide out the disk, now you have to lever apart the whole case which all clips together, as well as remove a loads of screws. It baffles me why they even sell these with spinning disks when SSD's are so cheap now.

This generation of Intel CPU doesn't support windows 7 and although there are some workarounds, they are no feasible for many businesses.

I agree it's not as easy as it used to be, but with the dell, certainly mine anyway, it's 8 screws and you're in, with the HP is a complete nightmare, and going off comments on other threads it's almost impossible to do without causing some form of damage, 4gb of ram is not enough for a laptop of this power, it's only good for browsing etc in which case may as well get an i3
