This a slightly cheaper alternative which also looks decent spec.

Is Ryzen 5 equivalent to i3? Thought it was better, no? Also, this is a 256gb ssd, yours is 128. Although, this is reflected in the price. Personally, I think that's a bit pricey for an i3. Much cheaper deals posted.

Anyone know, the build of this laptop? I'm presuming plastic?

Created with a streamlined chassis with a polished aluminium cover.
They are different but Ryzen 5 more similar to i5 from what I read.

I wouldn't save to buy i3 suggested in comments unless you buy gift to a kid that needs computer, but then 14'' would be enough with better deals
I own this and am pleased with the build quality. The top is metal.

How’s the laptop in general.
Some saying fan can be loud and battery life not great.
I've not had it for long but have heard the fan only once and it wasn't obtrusive. Mind you, it replaced a six year old monster of a laptop you couldn't hear the tv over. The Lenovo is super quick and once I find time to get rid of the preloaded McAfee I'll have no complaints. They're right about battery life but i knew before purchase and only use it at home so doesn't bother me.

awesome thanks.
Can it fit in a standard size back pack. Is it a back lit keyboard ?
My keyboard isn't backlit but might be an option if buying from Lenovo as there are lots of variations. My daughter has the same laptop and carries it in her Eastpak just fine.
I would have thought for another fiver the Dell was better.

I also thought it would match better with an i5 as opposed to i3.

Ryzen 5 is quad-core and i3 is dual-core so closer to Ryzen 3. The performance of each core is roughly similar but Ryzen is not so well-optimised, it should perform much closer to Intel than it does - most reviews confirm this. However as a complete package and with a good integrated GPU, I believe Ryzen is better.

Now £479.99 - worth it??
