Best sub £400 laptop I've seen in a while - 1080p, 6GB RAM, decent sized 256GB SSD, 6th gen i3 (roughly equivalent to 5th gen i5)

Waiting for "its not full hd " comment. And then that guy who tells resolution;)

Pity you can't get smaller screen for this sort of price and same spec, eyed this up last night but really need smaller screen - any helpers ?

Nb good deal.

£400? This must be a joke X)

Secondhand/refurbished on eBay is probably your best bet.

In fact, I've seen 4k machines go for this sort of price.

but it is full HD

How is this i3 equivalent to an older i5 - don't all i5s have cache which the i3 does not?

Full-HD (1920 x 1080) display

Isn't this quite expensive for an i3?

I wouldnt get caught up with badges in the ULV range. There's just a small difference in cache and base clock speed between an i3 and an i7 - same number of cores and similar performance.

The i5 and i7 have a boost clock they can hit in certain situations which the i3 doesn't do I don't think, but again this isn't a huge deal.

Looks decent to me for sub £400. It's got a decent screen too and Ssd who could ask for more!;)

Ok thanks for the reply.

Quite a decent sub £400 laptop. Usually they have Celerons or Pentiums or standard HD but this is pretty good.

Hot from me.

Alu body would be nice but guess I'm asking for too much?

Would love to see similar specs with a smaller screen!

Would this be able to handle photoshop?

At the 400 quid price point you're lucky to get full HD, let alone a decent SSD, solid CPU and RAM.

Alu body is rare even at £600+

​Perfectly.

Avidly hunting for extra discount codes

This has a M.2 SSD. Would I be right in assuming that it has space for another 3.5" HDD/SSD as well, or am I out of my wish tree?

3.5'' HDD/SSD won't fit in a laptop.

Any examples of anything decent with 4k (happy with 15.6inch)?

I can see a few previous gen i7 with 4k that look OK.

Any discount codes?

Cheers OP. Looking for a laptop for the outlaws. 3% Quidco atm.

2.5 % off brings it down to £389.03
Use code CQ316HPAF62

Anyone know if this model has good battery life?

I'd rather keep my money than give it to HP

Have a look at the Acer on QVC higher spec was same price as TSV

Yeah I'd like to know this as well, rare to find an SSD, let alone a 256gb one, in a laptop this cheap. Would be nice to have a spare 2.5" bay though to throw in a traditional HDD as well

Don't know why people are so fixated on FHD on such a small screen. The icons and text will be tiny if you run it at native resolution. I remember a time when 15" laptop screens had 1024x768 resolutions.

On my 24" monitor at home I run 1920x1080 and it's comfortable. On the 22" screens at work that run on the same resolution I have to increase the text size to 'medium'. I've seen people who don't know how to do that and end up squinting at their screens for 7 hours a day.

Would this run football manager 2016 on a decent setting with the 3D match engine enabled? Or would I need a dedicated graphics card? Thanks

All I want is a laptop with the body of an macbook and a mind that's windows. Add in a retina (brightness and resolution) display and a reasonable price, then I'm sold.

Is it backlit keyboard? I can't find that information.

Absolutely no need for a graphics card to play Football Manager mate. This will run it fine.

This one went the other night for £250!
ebay.co.uk/itm…369

This is the only live auction of which I am currently aware ATM:

ebay.co.uk/itm…790

You just need to keep an eye out really - generally get 0-4 new listings each day, some of which are new, some used, some spares/repair.

A strange amount of RAM imo... oO

​doesn't mention that kb is backlit in the HP specs so I'd guess not

Anyone know if it's ips or tn panel?

Have you ever compared 1440 x 2560 and 1080 x 1920 on smartphones? The higher resolution looks nicer even on screens that are
