There was stock when I posted so somebody purchased one or more.:p

Is an upgrade to i5 plus a year's warranty worth £100 (>20% increase)? To some, I imagine.

It's a good deal, closest I know of is this:
PCWorld HP 13.3in Pavilion

It's £29 more, but has touch screen, previous generation I5 and only 1 year warranty.

Note also you can upgrade the HP warranty to 3 years for £49 on the HP website.

The machine on the JL Link is ... Intel I3-7100 (not necessarily bad, just not the same).

Though the performance is near identical

My advice would be don't bother. You'll never ever use it and it adds weight. If the right laptop happens have touch screen though I wouldn't let that put me off.

Also worth pointing out that the two CPUs you compared were the two links inside this threads comments? The CPU of the deal posted is i5-7200U. That CPU comes out nearly 1000 points ahead of both the i3 CPUs. cpubenchmark.net/com…php?cmp[]=2879&cmp[]=2865

I've seen the i5-7200U in a few laptops lately (I think the Acer Swift 3 springs to mind, similar price to OPs deal) and I always find myself drawn towards it over other comparative laptops.

Would this laptop not be better? johnlewis.com/hp-…489

Same price with a larger screen, more hard drive space?

Depends what you want. ​That's not got an SSD and is an older generation I5-6200U so will be slower for some stuff but you're trading that off against the bigger screen.

Thanks everyone,

Depends whether you want to take it out of the house or not. 17" desktop replacement laptops are a paint in the **** to carry around. Especially that one weighing 2.7kg, whereas the 14" listed here is only 1.49kg.

Will mainly be kept at home. Main usage will be browsing, watching videos and playing one game now and again. Will the SSD be better for this than the usual HDD? Thanks

SSD is always going to be better and laptops generally always have two HDD caddies. I would (personally) put a normal HDD in once storage became an issue later down the line. Much better than having a HDD, then wanting to format the entire laptop when I decided an SSD was needed. If you're not ever going to take it out of the house, then there's no reason not to buy a bigger screened "desktop replacement" style laptop.

Realistically, the only thing that's going to eat storage space these days are the big AAA games (My GTAV folder for instance is nearly 70GB) but those types of games are going to struggle on 80-90% of laptops anyway. Everything else is streamed these days; Netflix, iPlayer, Spotify, Google Play Music, whatever.

I understand I generally qualify as a "power user" so I am being very picky waiting for the right work laptop for me.
