And **** resolution screen.

Very rare you get a good resolution screen for under £400, apart from the pc world deal which hasn't the specs of this machine.

It's the latest gen i3, not sure why you'd sniff at having 16Gb paired with a nice new efficient CPU, in a decent laptop.

Only thing that would put me off is the lack of SSD.

Stop buying laptops with 1366x768 screens. It's the only way manufacturers will get the message.

lack off ssd kills this deal for me.

i5 version (with 8GB & 1TB) same price from Currys.

What about those that can only afford those though?

if I don't watch films on my current laptop, do I need to worry about the lack oh an HD screen.....in the market for a new laptop.....but do need something fast powerful and not expensive....I thought this was a good deal, but would prefer an i5.....

If you mean the FHD lenovo the processors are pretty similar unless you encode a lot of 10 bit h265. Given it's hundred quid less you could up it's ram to 12gb swap the hdd for 256gb ssd and buy a caddy to use the hdd as external. Ending up with faster overall machine, FHD and some change.

As this is dearer than some FHD laptops I'm not sure how that works

When a £130 tablet or sub £250 laptop can have a FHD or greater screen there is absolutely no excuse.

I'd love to see how many pence they save by not sticking a FHD panel in every laptop as standard.


Resolution is more important on a monitor than a TV.
Added resolution allows more content to fit on the screen. ie, if you're working on a word document with a FHD screen you can easily use half for the document and the other half for the web browser. That would be much harder to do on a 768p screen.
A higher resolution screen increases productivity as well as making things sharper/clearer.

FHD is nice but it's hardly the end of the world if its not. Still no point to this configuration of laptop though. 16gb?!?!? No need.

​....................... so let's see if I understand this correctly, everyone stops buying laptops that haven't got full HD screens.
Which means that manufacturers/retailers will slash prices, and because of those irresistible prices everyone will then buy those laptops that haven't got full HD screens.
As a result the manufacturers will look at a bit of a price alignment, and then the whole cycle with laptops having non HD screens continues......? After a while the prices will start to creep up to close to the original prices..............

Yup I can see the sense in that ~ NOT!!!

Well waiting for the price slashing before buying would make more sense than buying at the currently inflated ones...

its a great deal imo, heat
