Found 7th Dec
Thought this looked good with 3 years cover and a bigger screen. Covers a few bases, I for one like a bigger screen on my laptops and with a GTX 1050, for this kind of money I think it's decent.

We all have different requirements when it comes to PCs/Laptops so I know some will prefer something with an SSD, but I'm not seeing anything in this price range with an SSD. They are 100% worth upgrading to later down the line for sure.

A few trade offs against other models, but if set on a 17" this seems like a good option if it fits what you're after.

So providing information not in the original post is now patronising... What a load of nonsense.

Not all i7s and Geforce 1050s are created equally - dual vs quad core and 2GB Vs 4GB is simply useful information to those thinking about spending £750.

Exactly. Some comments about GPU are just total crap. Some of us like a 17 inch screen with a bit of grunt, but not for gaming. This price point is where I want to be, and three year warranty, and John Lewis makes this a good deal for me.

I like to see stuff like this from an outside perspective. I have my own needs and wants with tech, but when hunting down deals, I tend to look at it as a bigger picture and find those offers that make sense for someone other than myself. There are lots of different specs, sizes and types of laptops out there and not everyone will deem them all as a good deal (For them specifically) Which is cool, variety is the spice of life and all that jazz.

So many trade-offs between laptops and in fact tech in general, and a 3yr warranty and a larger screen may suit some over something like more powerful GPU or an SSD.

Some information worth considering - No SSD, last gen Dual Core CPU and 2GB GPU.

No SSD drive. Laptops with the new 8th gen Intel chips are already out (see HP website) which have 40% more processing capacity for the same power consumption.

CPU: Dual-Core Intel Core i7-7500U

which looks a bit underpowered

I am lost for words every time I see a laptop deal posted. So many 'experts' crawl out of the woodwork to give us 'advice'.
Most of them are just idiots who get an orgasm when they see the latest GPU posted attached to a laptop. Get a life FFS.

Yes it is patronising. I am very aware of the specifications of this laptop because it costs a few quid. I believe that most people considering purchasing this item, at this price point, would be suitably sensible about checking the specification before buying!

that screen, battery life and overall design for everyday use with i7-7500U is enough to justify the price. GPU talks is not needed at all here.

Ahh.... sorry about that. It doesn't have the 3 year warranty (you may be able to add it as an extra during purchase?) but this LAPTOP might be of some interest.

Imagine how bad it would be plugged in to a 60 inch TV!

Thankyou for pointing that one out to me!
Im actually looking for a laptop that is not for gaming. the user will be doing internet research, regular backing up of files to desktop, office programs, no gpu games, photo display. In that light, would the end user get away with a cheaper model? the big screen is a definite preference. He has been using this bad boy linked below for the last decade, with one battery replacement, so i wonder what hte best upgrade will be. i imagine any step up ios going to be like going from analogue to digital

thanks for that, by using the side filters i was able to see that 8gb to 12 gb is a big price hike, and adding an ssd also move price above the 600 quid bracket.
im sure the following qu has been asked before but if you had succinct answer ot share it would be appreciated " will the use be able to appreciate the difference between i5 and i7, considering the laptop he uses currently"? Also, could he not just add an external ssd later on?

The one at £630 (£700 - 10%) has a quad core and a SSD.

An SSD makes such a huge difference on the speed of the machine, I would highly recommend it. Don't worry if it's an i5 or i7, just try and get a quad core of you can.

ok. so any quad core plus ssd. Possible then to add ssd later if i find a gr8 deal on a quad core that has no ssd?

Ah.....that's a more complex question than you think as you have to consider dual core vs quad core and 6th, 7th & 8th generation chips, all of which have differing processing power and characteristics, what software / hardware is present, etc. As for the SSD I couldn't say for sure. Presumably the laptop in question would have to have the capability (i.e. internal space / hardware) to accommodate an SSD drive. Also laptop dismantling can be a bit tricky, so it may be something to have done at your local reputable computer shop. Personally I'd future proof but as others who have expressed valid opinions here have said, it's "horses for courses" really.

Possible on some machines but can be tricky on others, and can invalidate your warranty.

No that wouldn't work well, really needs to be the internal boot drive.
