Just ok on the specs; guessing the screen is not FHD. Best thing about it is it looks dirty... when its new. Which some people will love.

its a bit of a mash up of parts ?
a 6th gen processor
only 6GB ram (usually 8GB nowadays)
an intel 520 gpu (expected a 550)
and no explanation of operating system ?
i would imagine it comes with windows 10 but with an intel 520 gpu and 6GB ram it might come with windows 8.1 ?

I believe it's Windows 10. I have the other version with 2 graphic cards and that one came with Win 10.

I bought one of these of ebay 2 weeks ago brand new for...£320 delivered.

Its perfect for Dev work as I popped in an SSD from my old laptop that has an Ubuntu setup on it (worked wothout issues after booting too, bonus for no re-install) and upgraded to 16GB of RAM (6GB was a very odd number ). Its a full HD (1920x1080) and the thing I liked the most about it was a backlit keyboard (as a dev, I like working in the dark )

This price, its veeery exspensive. I ddnt want to go over £300 (as it wasnt worht it) but they guy charge £20 delivery.

Im going to have to vote cold sorry.

Is it easy to upgrade the Ram? What cards / setup would you recommend ?

The base has to be dis-assembled to upgrade the ram.

Yep, you have to take the whole thing off. It was a complete nightmare and a few times I thought I snapped something. Lucky, I got there in the end. Not going lie, I found a decent you tube video guiding me in the right direction:

I used a little Philips screwdriver and a plastic clip so you can unclip the back from the front.

​sorry , well spotted
i actually also missed the 0 from the 550, i can see now i have woken up what an actual mashup that really would be ! I was referring to the i5-5200u as you now not the 6200u.
its amazing what coffee can do
thank you for pointing out my half asleep mistake

Hi, could somebody tell me which one is better ....
Intel HD Graphics520 graphics card.
Or a GeForce 940M

Is there a big difference?
Thanks

Edit, Just a quick opinion is fine as long as there isn't a big difference
Edited by: "Joey.Bloggsy" 19th Apr

the 940 GeForce is much better mate. although, i personally dislike Geforce due to driver problems and compatibility problems.
but yes the Geforce 940 is better

yeh 940m is much better but it is still considered an 'entry level' type card not up to any sort of modern gaming

https://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-520.149940.0.html
if its just browsing, videos etc then 520 is plenty though

​Indeed

Is this the one with the 940m graphics card?
