Need a cheap laptop for the Mrs....



I have a spare laptop. Can she cook?

Not a bad laptop for the money, Argos have the 305 at £279 with an older n3540 processor, I tried a John Lewis price match on the Argos machine (JL sell the 305 for £350 with an i3-5020 processor). Luckily for me JL agreed to match Argos even though technically they are not like for like because of the differing processor, I am guessing the person making the decision simply didn't notice that. John Lewis don't price match Amazon but it's worth a stab at asking them to match the Argos machine if only for the two year warranty. Like me you might just get away with it.

Luckily for me JL agreed to match the Argos £279 even though technically they were not exactly like for like because of the differing processor, I am guessing the person making the decision simply didn't notice that. I am fairly sure JL don't price match Amazon but I would say it's worth asking them to match the current Argos price if only to get the two year warranty.http://www.johnlewis.com/store/lenovo-ideapad-305-laptop-intel-core-i3-8gb-ram-1tb-15-6-/p2267362?colour=Blue&navAction=jump&_requestid=5176766http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4119038.htm#pdpFullProductInformation



I used the simply rewards £100 spend for £25 cash back to get a voucher a few weeks ago so have used that towards the laptop. On the plus side I have also used a nationwide plus card to pay the reat that will extend the warranty for an extra 12 months

is this a good laptop for the price? looking to replace my 12yr old trusty steed, only really used for transferring movies to and from a hdd and downloading movies, also streaming the odd footy game on a saturday, cheers

3KG! It must be made of pig iron. The first lappt was this weight and was horrible to carry around. It is certainly a hot deal, but it won't feel very portable with extended use.

I would have thought it was obvious that this referred to the whole box weight, not the laptop only weight.

Not after the amount of wine I drank when wrapping presents last night! And my first Compaq lappy was this weight so I thought it was of similar construction.

​btw you don't need to pay using the nationwide card to make use of flexplus benefits, it applies to all goods you purchase (or purchased less than 12 months old at time of opening flexplus)

Can someone tell me the difference between this 305 and this G50

pcworld.co.uk/gbu…ml..

This is the part no 80NJ00F5UK for the 305 on the Amazon site&this no 80E5036BUK is for the G50 on the Lenovo site..I can't see the difference though as specs are identical?

Sorry sold as is no returns or guarantee....

My parents just bought this but note that it's going for £279 now.

This is exactly what they needed; a basic laptop which will last a few years. This is the best laptop deal I've seen for around £300 and I've been looking on and off over the past month or so.

Thanks!

if she got by with the Toshiba. she'll be more than happy with this

very are doing it for £249.99 think its the same as the argos model, and i think if you use code 6JMTC you get £30 back on to your account

worth a try, cheers for the advice.

Am I right in saying there is currently no better spec laptop at this price point i.e an i3 + 1tb + 8gb ram?
I'm looking for a laptop i can use daily mainly browsing and ms office powerpoint, for the near future. Its the i3 thats drawn my attention since i had bought a cheaper laptop previously with a Intel Celeron N2830 " 2.16Ghz, 4.0gb RAM which ended up not having the performance- browsing was ok with occasional acceptable hanging. However ms office would take too long to load.
So knowing above would it be worth settling on this or paying a bit more for something else in the hope of future proofing in a way.
