Normally £544.99p, but get an extra 10% off using the code PAYDAY10. The code runs out today, so be quick!

Really good spec laptop for the price, although it is unclear whether it has an 128GB or 256GB SSD as this differs in the title and item description.

The i3 and i5 versions are £449.99 and £479.69 respectively (after applying the 10% off code).

Great deal and excellent laptop very fast! I only have the I5 model but with 128gb SSD and hasn't skipped a beat over the last year. It has been the best laptop I have ever had. I got from an offer that was run at VERY.co.uk last year where they were offering discounts on laptops. An offer I benefited from thanks to the tireless work of the HUKDers! Keep up the great work.

Nice find @crosborne, thanks for sharing
Code expires on 03/02/18, not tonight. Good deal.
Definitely worth it over the i3 and i5 variants at this price. Still not sure the bump in performance really justifies the nearly 50% price increase over the i3/4GB 320S at Currys.
Dunno how this isnt more hot? incredible deal, 1080p, i7, ssd! theyre very fast laptops for the price!
256SSD or 128?
under description it says 256 GB!! Not sure if someone was in hurry writing the description.....

Very tempted by this. Does not appear to have usb-c port. Can anyone confirm?
could we connect a larger monitor to this and which port would you use for this?
Ordered, pretty good spec for the price.

Although I would argue that with 7 series U intel processors difference between i7 and i3 is only in clock speed (10%) and overclock. and minor changes in L2 cache (not enough to make a difference)

All other features remain the space, so you shouldn't notice much performance difference between i7 7500 and i3 7100

An external monitor will connect through the HDMI port, at its simplest or you can use a usb to vga adaptor if you have an older monitor.
For the price its a good deal for a general purpose new laptop. It has (very) good battery life, a bright screen plenty of power to run applications, decent speakers. It is not suited to gaming but at this price you should not expect that.

Currys 320s -> Plastic construction, i5 8th gen processor, 128GB HDD
Argos 510S -> Metal construction, i7 7th gen processor. 256GB HDD.

I would lean towards Argos due to better construction and more SSD, the processor shouldn't give much difference.
Just received today and fortunately its 256SSD. First review very good machine with specs however speakers are ok. Secondly outside its white as mentioned in details. But over very good machine for the price. Thanks OP

Is it all metal, or just the top casing? Thanks

All inside is metal outer case and base is plastic
Can any body suggest hardshell case or protector for this model as its very easy for me to ruin white colour case
Got mine today. Interested to know of other buyers thoughts. These are supposed to be brand new, right?

Did everyone else's come in just a brown box? Should their have been an outer sleeve of some sort with a picture of the laptop?

There was also some small hairs on the laptop and two fingerprints on the screen.

I can see the sticker on the brown box that it is indeed a 256GB SSD, which is good.

Got mine, overall pretty good, 256GB, the main problem for me is the touch pad is really really bad.

I have macbook, dell xps, inspirion, lenovo thinkpad s440 and this is hands down the worse touchpad I've used. My finger feels really gritty on the touch pad, so touch movement becomes jumpy instead of smooth, making it very hard to use. I tried wax and polishing the touch pad, it makes it slightly better but still a bad experience.

The keyboard is also pretty mushy so the key strokes feels uneven, however this can be ignored, it is really quite annoying but so far it feels like they have cheaped out for this midrange laptop.

There is a TON of bloatware installed, which took a while to clear out, I am really considering returning this due to the bad touchpad being a deal breaker.

Mine came in a lenovo brown box with a tamper proof seal, inside clear plastic sleeve, clearly new.

What bloatware was on it?

Asking as recently got the Currys 320s posted here so assume it will be similar and want to make sure I get rid of it all.

Its got MCafvee anti virus, the standard stuff with some "free" games.

Also got a load of Lenovo apps market and some customer experience manager bits and pieces.

Hows the trackpad on the 320S? is it plastic? does it snag your fingers? mine is going back tomorrow.

Yeah, I'll be sending mine back, primarily for the condition it arrived in. It had clearly been used and/or returned previously.

That aside I am suitably impressed with the speed of boot up and just how snappy it feel to navigate. The touchpad is a bit shitty, but tolerable for portability sake - for the most part I'd likely use a mouse at a desk.

However, all that is pointless as it's the keyboard I can not tolerate. I am struggling with the right shift key. I typically type just from muscle memory and everytime I go to do a capital letter I am hitting where the shift key should typically be, but instead hitting 'page up' and find this means I've jumped up a line and proceeded to type another sentence in the wrong place. Basically I end up having to edit everything which is a pain in the arse. Shame though, I otherwise find the keyboard quite comfortable and that the trackpad unlike my old laptop does not seem to get in the way of typing.
