Spec says No Optical Drive, yet photos show a drive I'd be interested if it did have the drive.

That's the one I was supposed to do. I copied the wrong site while comparing prices.
If you can stretch, this is better value for your money. Upgradeable, IPS and backlit keyboard.

I've just been looking into this and found out that the model 1WY37EA for £614.99 has the DVD drive and comes with Windows 10 Pro instead of Home
I am looking at getting this and liking the fact it has physical mouse buttons... I'm replacing a 6 year old HP i5 laptop with 6GB RAM. So I hope this will feel like a decent upgrade?

I am not too sure about the 256GB storage as I use most of my (slow) 1TB HDD now, or is it recommended to use a wireless external hard drive for the bulky stuff?
£499.97 now...
thanks

SSD’s are a must in my opinion. Spinning drives are too much of a bottleneck. I would make use of a good cloud storage or possibly an external 1tb usb hard drive (if you don’t mind the slight risk of data loss).

You could always buy a 1tb SSD for your laptop and swap out the old one. That’d save you all the money and probably have a similar speed as the new one.

I do this a lot at various schools I work in. The cost hugely outweighs buying a new device and gives machine a whole new lease of life.

How about this, 8th Gen i5 with an IPS display for £530.

Or maybe a Lenovo 14" for £499? Nicer looking, metal encased has backlit keyboard.

HDD aren't that bad. I've used them for over 20yrs, not one has ever failed on me other than windows getting corrupt, but quick install of ubuntu and it works fine. Only reason I've ever had for getting new ones is to get bigger size. Maybe I'm just one of the lucky ones but my PC is on literally everyday for over 10hrs usually. Tho i do like SSD, great for booting stuff up quicker

I haven't experienced HDD failure myself with my own hardware, but since it's my job working refurbishing laptops and working with average a 1000 laptops a year over 7 years, I'd say they definitely do fail fairly often I would say we get about 7-8 jobs in a week with HDD failures, and it's very common for people not to backup as well. I would also say I've seen SSD's fail but the majority of laptops I work with still use conventional hard drives.

My guess is a lot of those are people who don't know how to look after their stuff
whats the advantage of having a 7th gen dual core i7 over a 8th gen i5 quad core if any?

Seems intel are ripping people off with this dual core i7

Intel & nvidia scammers.
You'll probably find most of the i5 deals posted here on other threads are much better in performance than the i7 laptops as the i5 laptops tend to be quad core whereas most of the i7 laptops are only dual core.

What about the graphic card on this laptop? is it good enough to run heavy software like video editing Camtasia and also Photoshop?
