Seems like a good deal with the cashback - a lot of punch for the money and can't find anything as good for the £ - unless I'm missing something which no doubt the more experienced techy guys will be quick to point out...
My first post so be gentle!

hot from me

It's hot and am already considering buying it, the only thing to note is it's a 4th generation i7 but it probably won't make much difference to most

Shame it's not the Pro.

It's the dual core i7 which doesn't really have any more poke than a lot of the i5s

About 14% like for like according to benchmarks, the SSD in this compared to the i5 version would make a speed difference too.

I would go for i5 from Currys for £430.

You could get a 256G SSD for £50-60. Not to mention, the i5 use SSHD which is also fast as system drive.

The specs difference does not worth the price difference.

Yesterday, I got a 20% off code from ebay.

I was thinking of buying refurbished Flex 2 Pentium 3558U from Argos ebay for £192 with FHD. (I already have spare memory and SSD in hand to upgrade, they do not cost me extra) Mainly buying for the touch screen, FHD, and 2-in-1. Yogo pro cost too much.

And it is 14 inch which I like more than the 15.6 inch because it is lighter to travel.

Then I realised that to upgrade memory and SSD is harder than usual and void warranty as the whole back cover need to be take out, which is a risk I am not willing to take as I am not sure if I will keep it unless I have fully test it.

Depends to an extent on the benchmarks you use! I'm not trying to say that this is a bad deal or a bad processor (for most users it's more than adequate) but I've always thought that the dual core i7 is more a marketing exercise than anything else!
I'm still running an i5-2450M largely because to get any realistic increase in processor grunt I would probably have to go quad core. That being said I have very specific needs from my computer which tend to be very processor intensive.

Just to let you know it was £100 cashback, not £50
