Literally the hardest audience to please. All laptops, according to HUKD, must be;
-less than £500
-minimum 256gb SSD
-IPS screen

They don’t care about;
-processors
-thermal throttling
-build quality
-keyboards
-upgradability

Good deal for a sub-£300 laptop anyway, although might struggle against the Lenovo going for £299 with i3 and 8gb RAM

8GB should be the strict minimum. Makes me angry to see that smartphones with 4GB memory are available for £100 while PC vendors are still pushing for 4GB to be "acceptable"

Ips?


Its SVA which in HP terms is "Standard Viewing Angle", which in turn is code for TN.

256gb ssd ips screen 8gb is not a big ask for under 500
what a deal, perfect for my needs
Anyone know if the ram is an easy upgrade?

I bought a Lenova S540 from John Lewis this morning... Pretty much fulfills all of HotUK's requirements.

To be fair it’s what I’m looking for in most laptops, but people are cynical as hell on here. How’s the laptop? Is it pink?
Slightly off topic, sorry about the hijack, but can any one advise ( after the event but oh well.. ). I have just bought a Laptop/Workstation Dell Precision M4800 I7 4910MQ 15,6 " Nvidia K2100M SSD 256GB RAM 16gb from DELL refurb direct.

There was 5 available when I looked the other day but now down to one. It was on offer with a 50% code - although I am always a bit dubious about codes. It was bought to replace an i7 m3800 Precision that has reached the end of its life (been offered £200 for parts - but it still works, just about!).

I have been searching for a while for something that one of our guys is going to use it for CAD and some basic coding. He laughed at some of the stuff I suggested. No way I was splashing out on anything new. The project he is working on is around 6-8months and as long as it lasts that long it will more than pay for itself. This was in his top three 'affordable choices'. Apparenly it is very easy to upgrade memory and is well built, heavy and very ugly!

I paid £295. I have 14 days with it, so will return if there is anything better out there for peanuts? i am definitely a non techie!

I won't know until it turns up unfortunately.

Also... It's not pink.

From Toms Hardware

VA stands for vertical alignment and is a type of LED (a form of LCD) panel display technology. VA panels are characterized as having the best contrast and image depth among the other main types of display panels, TN (twisted nematic)and IPS (in-plane switching), but also the longest response times. As such, you may want to think twice before choosing a VA panel as a gaming monitor. However, we regard contrast as the most important factor in a monitor's image quality. So if you’re looking for the best possible picture, we highly recommend a VA display.

When buying a PC monitor or even a laptop, you may see displays listed as “SVA” instead of “VA”. SVA stands for “super vertical alignment” and is a term created by Samsung. Long story short, SVA is a type of VA panel that claims to bring better viewing angles, which is why some people will say SVA stands for “super viewing angles.” Either way, SVA means better image quality when viewing the screen from the side, above, below or in very sunny or bright atmospheres.
According to Samsung, SVA panels achieve better viewing angles by laying its liquid crystals into varying directions, allowing viewers to see the same colour no matter their viewing angle. “With shaping liquid crystal cell structure as a boomerang, further dividing each sub-pixel into two different sections that are oppositely aligned (also referred to as fish-bone structure), viewing angles are no longer an issue,” Samsung says. However, an IPS display will likely still offer better viewing angles than an SVA display.

Don’t forget - it could have all the ram, storage and cpu grunt in the world, but if it dares to be 720p screen, it’s a travesty!!!!

No, It has nothing to do with Samsung, the article is about different types of desktop monitor displays.

It is just a TN panel.

HP cleverly use SVA (Standard viewing angle) to describe panel instead of TN to confuse people into thinking it's a VA panel.

Couldn't find that one? Maybe gone now?

Yeah just checked again. All 4910s have gone. When I initially checked there were quite a few. I actually only went there because of comments on anoher thread. So thanks to them.

The laptop I bought was much cheaper than anything else of a similar nature on ebay or elsewhere (£499 on ebay). My business partner said it was a good deal and I probably should have bought a couple more.

He knows people who use Dell Refurb Outlet as a source of profit via ebay resales..

Cheers. Hopefully it is in decent condition. It was classed as A grade for what it is worth.
Has anyone got one of these yet, any comments on the screen, specifically viewing angles?
Thanks
