What do you think of the screen? Good viewing angles?

Great from all angles, the dell was a 15" and unless you were right in front you could not view it

Not sure, bought it blind on-line

If only this was 15.6 screen, heated

Edit, just seen there's others that are on offer

The current Dell 15" 1366x768 screens have a terrible reputation. Massive shame as older ones were pretty decent.

Apologies , I don't know enough about laptops to recommend any but the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 looks good . My main criteria for a laptop is full HD screen and SSD. I do have an upper price limit of 800 pounds so I'm thinking get this or wait for more Easter bargains.
John Lewis is always a plus for me to buy from and I'll try n pop in tomorrow to have a look.

Edit, tbh if it's a full HD, you're not really going to be disappointed unless you need a really acute viewing angle on the screen .
Edited by: "Joey.Bloggsy" 6th Apr

Probably worth adding that it has a 3 year guarantee, as that is really good at this price and usually only on business class machines. Also HP just don't seem to know how to put a laptop together and have it last much more than a year

And the £29.95 HP ultrabook laptop sleeve can be added for free (first bundle below product description)

I have seen too many dead HPs to ever buy one.

Bought a HP posted here few years ago for £250 and I can't fault it. Amount of times I dropped it and it's still going strong. So I'm really sorry that I have to bust your myth about HP.

The Pavilion series is normally for multimedia usage. Hence it also has the upgraded speakers. I have had a pavilion before and the viewing angle was very good and sound excellent. I am sure this will be similar.

I don't see how a laptop can get such heat without a spec being posted:

Not bad. But I suspect the screen is a TN type. And the ssd is ridiculously small. If there was space for a full sized HDD and an msata ssd it might be worth considering.

​You can watch reviews on YouTube and Google the reviews, it seems like a common theme that many gaming laptops skimp on the screen and put all the money into the specs. I'm tempted to get the Omen then a secondary screen, but then there's the Dell XPS 15... My budget just keeps going up and up and up, originally it was £400 D':

Anyone recommend a sub £300 pound laptop for playing minecraft? It's my sons birthday soon and he wants one for playing minecraft,I believe the processor speed has to be an i3 minimum? Any help appreciated,thanks in advance.

Hot from me, if I'd not already pulled the trigger on a similar spec model from Dell then I would have bought this.

Just had a look in JL and unfortunately the screen wasn't too impressive . Hp envy x360 looked pretty good out of the sub 1k but also £930 for the 15.6"

Edit , note that it's still not too bad for the money

Edit no2 the envy it is at £780 which is looking good with that crisp screen.
Thx SClub below but for me, I need ssd and a decent screen , although what you're saying does seem a really good vfm laptop.

Please note for info that some envy models come without a CD drive

Be careful will some of the Dell screens. I was looking at the 13.3" Inspiron 5000 series convertible in PC World, and the full HD IPS screen is pretty bad (as per reviews). Move off centre and the screen has a shimmering, almost glittery effect.

Not sure if the Lenovo Ideapad 510 is still on offer, but that has a decent 15.6" full HD IPS screen and fairly fast i3 processor for £350.

So hows the screen? Are the colours good or is it washed out? Are the blacks black or grey? Every laptop I've looked at so far has awful screens but one but that one had poorer specs.

Where did you see the Lenovo 510 offer SClub? I'd be interested in that!

seems like a decent laptop. i kind of need the left and right buttons under the touch pad.

I agree. I've had a few HPs before and they are all the bluming same. Poorly built, over heat, heavy and cumbersome.

Is this a gaming laptop plz or suitable?

I have to say the opposite, I have 2 both over 5 years old and none have given me problems.

You would need to pay more for a gaming laptop, certainly £800+

It actually says 'in-plane switching' so his comment about it being TN was just plain conjecture and totally wrong.

Is there a docking station for this?
Any recommendations?
Thanks

shame no backlit keyboard
