Elekdirect is an AO Outlet Store for customer returns, ex-display, open box, and end of line items - so double check before you buy

Please note that this is an OPEN BOX product, likely a customer return.

Seems a very good price for the specs at £385, considering you get a very capable 10th Gen i5 10400F (6 cores/12 threads). This usually retails for about £549 new (you may be able to get it a bit cheaper at Lenovo if you have a student discount). The one I posted here recently for £399.99 seemed a good deal, and this seems a little better.

Yes, it sadly only comes with 8GB RAM and both slots are occupied, but you can upgrade the RAM to 16GB for £60 or less further down the line if you need to.

The PSU is only 380W, so I wouldn't be expecting to upgrade the GPU to anything amazing in the future. But this doesn't seem a limitation if you just want a decent PC for eSports games or for kids.

It comes with a one year warranty from ElekDirect. But as this is a Lenovo, the warranty is tied to the serial number. Therefore, the product warranty is with the system and not the owner. In theory, you should be covered and able to extend the warranty as long as it is still within the warranty period.

Should add that it is probably eligible for Windows 11 upgrade out of the box, but I haven't checked whether a BIOS upgrade is necessary.

You can find more information about the system at Lenovo's PSREF (here).
