At this price one looks for HDMI and a good webcam not 0.3MP that's net book grade.

Bought one of these from IT247 as per recent deal for £292 but with 2Gb ram and only 320Gb HDD. Good quality machine so recommended by me.

The deal I've posted is better that the Link you have just gave.


This is better and cheaper and … This is better and cheaper and amazon.http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lenovo-g560-15-6-p6100-250gb-2gb-bt-laptop-299-delivered-amazon/867389/#post10543294

In what way is the Amazon one better.?

This one has:
Double the memory
Double the hard drive capacity.
A faster processor.

I have one with a T4400 processor but otherwise the same. Not bad at all.

4gb and 500gb thats a good price, looking for a new laptop too but a bit to soon after xmas for me.

Absolutely abysmal touchpad on this one. Be warned......

I concur on the awful touchpad. If it was my own personal laptop it'd be a deal breaker. I know you can carry a mouse etc etc but it's a nuisance.

I'd also recommend wiping this laptop then installing Windows afresh as it comes with quite a bit of bloatware. My 2p.

Apart from that, it's a reasonable laptop for casual surfing.

realblender is correct. Amazon deal is better. RAM and HDD can be swapped, but you will be stuck with T4500 CPU and Video card is not upgradable.
Amazon deal is faster laptop.

This is definitely hot! Was initially drawn by this specs, however, the deal from RealBlender is a better deal. Also, I noticed that the G560 supports Wireless-n in built. If that interests you, that's a better deal still!


In the deal i linked to, the P6100 is about the same speed as the t4500 - … In the deal i linked to, the P6100 is about the same speed as the t4500 - (dont compare the clockspeed - e.g.http://www.cpubenchmark.net/mid_range_cpus.html). The integrated graphics is about twice the speed and decent for light gaming (http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Graphics-Media-Accelerator-HD.23065.0.html). I expect the power consumption will also be much better as it is a shared die(same architecture as an i3). It also has a good webcam 1.3 and hdmi. Granted the hard drive and memory is less than this deal but it is also £30 less and you can spend that money on upgrading the memory.

As I said, the processor on this deal is faster. Even your link (although it's for desktop CPUs & NOT mobile CPUs) proves that too.
But, when checking like for like, try Notebookcheck.net for mobile CPUs.
T4500 is 114th
P6100 is 135th
Plus the extra memory & disk makes for the slight price difference this a better deal in my opinion.

Regards battery life. My G550 with the T4400 CPU gives over 4 hours consistantly. Above the manufacturer's estimate.
