Yes, this one is better than the Toshiba deal.

I still think Probook 450 G2 with i5-5200u at £330 is better.

The overall quality difference will be very noticeable between the two laptops.


Lenovo used to claim B series is business quality, it is in fact not business quality. It is more like a consumer laptop. And I have heard complaint from few people that B series are not good quality.

Price was £300, increased to £330 now.

Another advantage, Probook 450 has a M.2 slot. You can add a M.2 SSD, and have both SSD and HDD. That will satisfy needs for both performance and storage space.

The only huge disadvantages I'm seeing here is the poor battery life (3-4 hours) and the weight (2.1kg).

what do you think??

No, that is completely untrue.

Probook 450 G2 actually does really well in both areas.

The weight of 2.1kg is not bad at all for a 15.6 inch with a optical drive. Do not compare against Ultrabook.

Ignore the seller website description of 3-4 hours battery life, it put the same description in every laptop.
Reviews said its battery life is very good, 7:36 hours wifi surfing outperform laptops in the price range.

Probook 450 G2 has a battery of 40wh.

The B51 in OP's deal has a battery only 32wh, and claim 6 hours battery life.

If you want better than that, you will have to consider an Ultrabook.

Meh, I picked up the laptop you suggested.

I went the extra mile though, I picked up a 256 gb M.2 from transcend and 16gb of ram from corsair. Totaling to around £450.

I am happy for you.

I presume the 16GB RAM is 2x8GB right?

Is there any reason you need to go for a 256GB M.2 instead of 120/128GB?

I would suggest to go for 128GB for a system disk, especially Probook already have a WD black HDD for storage.
1. The big performance increase in 256G SSD over 128GB is sequential read/write speed, which is not important for a Windows system. I have used so many, there is little or none difference in system performance between them.

2. You have HDD in the laptop for storage already. You do not need to pay so much for an extra 128GB storage.
