Currently this laptop is on offer with voucher EAST50 which bring down the price down from £549 to £499. For those prefer 15" version of the recent HP 14-bs100na laptop from AO.com, I think this is not a bad deal.

Currently Quidco has 6% cashback, so potentially the final cost is £469.06.

By paying extra £50 (after cashback/voucher), compare to the 14" HP 14-bs100na laptop from AO.com, you get
- bigger 15" Full HD screen
- 8GB ram instead of 4GB
- 1TB HDD instead of 256 SSD. This 5400rpm HDD will run much slower but can be upgraded to SSD manually.
- Keyboard with numeric keypad

Cons:
- 2.1 kg vs 1.7 kg
-11 hours and 45 minutes vs 12 hours and 30 minutes

Both 14" and 15" running on the latest Intel 8-gen i5-8250U CPU.

Full spec for 14"
Full spec for 15"

What AO one, I'm of the same frame of mind, would be good for me if it had a ssd, maybe one could be added?

How does it compare to the Lenovo deal available from John Lewis

£500 and no SSD... And HP? No. If I was going to buy a unreliable brand, I'd go for the Lenovo i5 with SSD at ~£370 instead.

I will be buying my son a laptop this year he web surfs and plays games from Steam I'm not sure how graphic intensive the games are but I don't think he plays the latest graphic rich games,could anyone point me in the direction of a good brand to buy,I would be hoping to spend £400 but less if possible, and maybe a little more if I have to

There is a big jump of performance increase on the current 8-gen Intel CPU over the few previous generations of CPU. The few previous generations CPU were merely improving the battery life but performance had not improved much for past several years. However on the current gen finally the performance improvement could be as much as 40%, so this should be included in the consideration over buying older laptop.

With a conventional HDD the performance will be totally hamstrung, so the generation is pretty irrelevant for most people.

True, but there is an option to upgrade it with £25 SSD, but you can't upgrade/change the CPU easily.

Lots of people would not know how to replace the HDD with an SSD and install the OS. Sorry, but you can't get around the fact that this price is poor for an i5 without discrete graphics card or SSD from the pretty poor brand HP (bought a bunch for work and they weren't even set up correct out of the box. Two different models too so not even a glitch). It's cold. I wouldn't recommend anyone buy it.
