Two clicks of the mouse to replace 10s with regular 10, at no cost
Decent spec, but let down by the 720p screen, so it's cold from me I'm afraid. Similar laptops with full HD screens come up for this price regularly on here.

HD ready. Ha ha, nearly fell off my chair when I read that. A promotional term used firstly ten years ago. Really old tech standard. Now 4K is the the present conumer standard, four times that size, professionals use 6 to 8K now.

Sorry, but did I miss something? Why have 'S' at all? I can understand it on 32gb mmc systems but not if you've got the space... if space is what it's even about?

see howtogeek.com/354…de/

"Should I Use the PC in S Mode?
S Mode sounds limited, and that’s the point. If you only need a basic Microsoft Edge web browser, Microsoft Office applications like Word, and anything else that’s available in the Microsoft Store, you should try using the PC in S Mode. The S Mode restrictions provide additional protection against malware.

PCs running in S Mode can also be ideal for young students, business PCs that only need a few applications, and less experienced computer users."

Mostly security and speed. But most of us here probably don’t want it! If I wanted a locked down OS with apps only I’d buy an iPad!

Not acceptably. Buy the Ryzen 5 Lenovo V155 on here for £315, as it’s got the Vega 8 which is fine for light gaming.

I was wowing all over the place reading this, and almost thought of returning my PC that I bought this week until I realised this was 720p. I really couldn't go back to a 720p screen, it was actually one of the main reasons I decided to upgrade. I'm not voting cold because the specs might make it worthwhile to someone for the low cost, but I wouldn't vote hot either

Agreed, that one is the one I went for! It's virtually an entry level gaming PC, even though I wouldn't be using it for games.

Its an Intel. Of course it will not pay anything! Only a crazy person can buy Intel.
no USB-C
