Hi emrahsener54, you could get an almost similar spec laptop from DELL dell.com/uk/…_OC The DELL Inspiron 15 5000 series is £429 and you can get a further 10% discount bringing it to around £390. Hope it can save you a few pounds.

From a quick look, how about the Acer Aspire E5-571 (Intel Core i5-4210U, 8GB) for £399.99...

and add a 4 year warranty for £59.49...

Argos on Ebay are selling refurbished E5-571s with Intel Core i5 4210U dirt cheap, £239.99. Only 4GB RAM but you could slot in some more. Their refurbs are usually good as new, but only a 12 month warranty and that can't be extended.

I'd certainly consider Dell a more reliable brand than HP for the home market. The deal you suggest looks good, but the cost of extending the warranty to 3 years seems to be £178 on top.

Thanks Mark for leaving a time to look for good deals for me. Im looking into dell website now. Do you know if they do student discount as well?

I'm not sure. It'd the high cost of warranties that puts me off Dell a bit, as if I was spending £400 I'd want it covered for more than a year.

You need to get an ssd drive. Ram and processor get throttled so you don't get the full benefit

You could upgrade the 4GB up to 12GB for £40 and is a 1 minute job.

​processor only 1.7ghz

I don't consider this a good deal, for this kind of money it really has to be 1080p, it is way way more important than an i5.

Why exactly do you need an i5 or i7? for example this i5 is weaker than 3rd gen quad core i3 and no one ever complains it is slow... Point being without an ssd and a very particular cpu intensive task in mind I don't see why anyone would need an i5 over say an i3... Maybe if you intend to use it for 10 years instead of 8 it might be important...

looks like a good laptop..I think it's good for the money

Screen Resolution: 1366 x 768 pixels. Are you seriously spending almost £500 on a laptop without a Full HD screen? Madness!

Voted Cold.

12GB because definitely most of the users buying this laptop will need that amount of RAM.

i3's have definitely never ever been quad core ever at all ever. I think you're mistaking hyperthreading for physical cores. i3's have only ever been physical dual cores.

​actually this makes the deal worse in my eyes too

I'd definitely shop around a bit, 12GB RAM is overkill and i'd be wanting 1080p for that money. Plus you would definitely want some cash spare to stick an SSD in

all this and no dedicated discrete graphics? pathetic. only Intel HD? lol bye.

​and possibly look for a laptop with a dedicated gpu

an i5-5200U... don't get me wrong, happy that it's a 5th gen CPU but cmon, with 12 gp of ram you're getting a ultra low power/voltage processor which is shown by the "U" in the i5 model number. for this price range an amd apu with more powerful integrated graphics would be better or another i5 laptop with dedicated graphics. all that ram but to no good use other than to have 69 chrome tabs open.
