While it is not possible to upgrade the cpu, it is possible to upgrade the hdd/ssd, so the model with Ryzen 7 is better. Voted hot

Anything similar with 256GB SSD?

256gb sata ssd is only £25-30 more. You can change hdd with ssd yourself.

Not everyone wants to do that, with a brand new laptop.

That's Ok. SVA(TN) display is not great though. Washed out colours and limited viewing angles.

I have done it several times with ram, hdd and cpu . Now they do not let you upgrade cpu as it is soldered buy ram and ssd can be easily upgraded. If any problems, put old one back. Even very easy to upgrade screens. Most times 780p screens can be upgraded to IPS 1080p but not 4k. All screens available to buy on ebay and video of the procedure on YouTube. It is not rocket science anymore. Micron website tells you about ram and ssd even without opening.

Good deal, but it’s 2019 and I just wouldn’t buy any computer without an SSD now.
What's the chassis on this?
I bought the next model down from this one, Ryzen 5, Vega 8 graphics, and it performs wonderfully. I can play my games on high quality (although they are a few years old) and I haven't had any problems. There is no optical drive but caddies are available to fit a second hard drive (or SSD) in it's place. Also worth noting that the ram is 2x4gb, and one of those is soldered so only 1 ram is upgradable, although I have read it will support up to 16gb ram.

I paid £450 for my model from PC World

Don't know if they knew their stuff but someone said new Ryzen out soon and will be same price as predecessor.
If you can spend £50 more you're better off getting the 14" Matebook D with 2500U on Amazon. I managed to grab it for £560 a short while back. Although it technically has a weaker chipset, it performs better since ryzen really takes advantage of the dual channel memory. It also has a higher 25W tdp so the GPU performs much better. And I'm sure I don't need to mention ssd vs hdd.

This is at Currys (PC World). The price of £549 is still correct although I don’t know how long it will stay at this price.

The top cashback offer appears to have been taken off. I will edit the description.
These laptop have extremely noisey fans that run at 100% pretty much all the time, even when browsing internet and as a current owner of one it drivese insane. I wouldnt buy another lenovountil they sort this. Lenovo seem aware have not do e anything to correct. Great spec but poor build.
