AMD Radeon R7 M360 Graphics (2 GB DDR3 dedicated)

39.6 cm (15.6") diagonal Full-HD (1920 x 1080) display

6GB RAM with lightning-fast 256GB SSD storage

I just ordered today mate sorry forgot to mention that in the post
The AMD chip is rated at 15W and so should run cool (and quiet).
how does the A10 chip compare to the i3 in the other deal?
The R7 M360 graphic card is a joke, which is somehow slower than the HD520 on I3 6100U.

Check out the gaming benchmark results, really disappointed..

The site "helpfully" adds that on all deals from that site, if you follow the link though I'm not surprised it's not working it's for 10% off Original HP Toner with voucher

Erm you do realise that your link shows that it beats the hd520 on most games?
Benchmarks aside I would agree with ro888, it's rubbish. We have a lenovo z50 (I think) anyway it has this processor and graphics and it's terrible. Struggles with almost everything you throw at it.

I feel like there's something not right with it, as if the dedicated graphics never actually kick in, but I would advise to avoid and would never buy again.

I have a lenovo yoga 2, non pro, which has an i5 in it and performs much better, and was actually a cheaper laptop.
Looks like a good deal heat added.

However would like to know people's thoughts on this laptop against the current HP 250 g4 available at tesco for £299. Additional memory upgrade roughly £15. Overall cost being £315.

Upgrading the memory from 4gb to 8gb on that laptop would bring it's specs to this -

Intel core i5 - 6200u
128gb ssd
8gb Ram
non full HD screen

Difficult choice between the two as this laptop has full HD and double the ssd size.

Anyone's thoughts would be appreciated as in the market for speedy laptop for sub £400
