I personally would go for an A+/A grade refurbished laptop with warranty which u can easily find on ebay.. a lot cheaper and alot of laptop for money. Just couple examples.. I believe there are even better deals on ebay/amazon but due to having limited time u can find out urself.. Now u know currys is a rip off

Buy an enclosure and ssd, connect to laptop, clone drive, install ssd, put HDD in enclosure, format hdd, use HDD as external hard drive (for pc/mac/Xbox/whatever else)

You could yes - but computers (especially at this price) should be coming with an SSD as standard these days.

It seems for that price it's either i7 and disk HD or i5 and SSHD

They're still not popular enough to completely replace hdd because of the price. Those that are not very computer literate would see a 1TB HDD way better value than a 256GB SSD because it's more.

When the price difference becomes more even, then it will be in most laptops as standard.

Which is more important then getting one with a SSD or higher processor. I thought the processor. Also is the trade in at curry’s a good deal as I can get £125 for my old laptop which makes this deal for me. Anywhere else advisable to get money for the old beast 15 acer aspire.

Isn't it the case that if an SSD fails you have Zero chance to recover any files, whereas with a HDD at least you can recover files from the non corrupt sectors?

Go for a better processor, as you can always upgrade the hard drive later. Not that upgrading hard drives is that easy on most modern small/slim laptops.

Lenovos are fiddly to upgrade, but they do put their maintenance manuals with instructions on their website.

There's not that much difference these days - and we're not talking about a sub £300 laptop but one in the £600 mid range. At this point I see lack of an SSD as a serious omission.

(And I assume you meant those who are not very computer literate would see a 1TB HD as better value than a 256GB SSD?)

Depends on what you're using it for:

light use (browsing, multimedia) = get a lesser processor and as much storage as you need (which may not be that much)

Gaming = at least i5 + dedicated gpu (not 920m-940m though) and enough storage for all files and games. (ssd for fast load times)

Video editing = ssd for cache, quad core Intel, enough storage for all video files

any idea whether this dual core i7 will be enough for me to run photoshop (regular use)?

Lol you got that completely the wrong way round.

If your standard mechanical drive fails you are pretty much stuffed unless you get lucky or can afford to send it off to a data recovery lab

In most cases and all the cases I have worked with a failed ssd will become almost read only as in you can pull the files off and that's about it.... Which is what you want
