Depends what you want. That's 2tb hard drive this is ssd. If storage space is what you then yours is more suitable but this one if not.
Shows blacklit on argos images but it isn't blacklit shame
New tech? - a spinning SSD
TN screen

TN display …TN display https://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/Lenovo%20Laptops/ideapad_S34015API?M=81NC003QUK


TN display is a killer for some people, but I have 5 laptops; one of them is a TN display and whilst the viewing angles are limited it doesn't bother me - it's easy to just position it in a way in which it can be viewed properly
How does this compare to the one on offer at AO please?

Im not a massive expert but understand i5 is meant to be good. Dont know much about amd.

Thank you very much for replying.

Its main function wont be gaming. Birthday present for someone who has a super fast gaming pc and we would rather pay a bit more for faster laptop too. Previously- using my laptop has caused a lot of stress!

i5 for traditional usual work is better in simple terms but this is cracking value for money, depends on your budget but usually i5 with everything else like for like is at least £50 more. This is a cracking bit of kit for £350

That's a bit like asking "how does this Ford Fiesta compare to an Audi?"

Personally I think this is cracking and I've reserved it at my local argos for a friend and will see if she likes it. The 8gb and 256ssd will give it fast boot up but it all comes down to budget. If you can spend more then you'll get a better laptop. Think you'll be hard pushed to find anything that beats this for £350. If you want to spend more have a look at ao.com. they've got some cracking deals on plus some of they're discount codes have expired which makes me wonder if they're about to launch new deals

A few of us are chipping in and budget is around £500. The only thing it needs to be able to do is not crash constanly lol and things to load up really quickly (whether booting up or having multiple tabs open on browser/watching movies at the same time!).

I hate buying presents like this as everyone has their own preferences. I've reserved this now too - thanks for your help. The one at AO looks really good for £550, but might be a bit of an overkill if not being used for gaming.

More food for thought! Thanks for taking the effort and time to help me


The argos one is not intel but faster processor speed. I think I'll reserve it too and have another comparison in the morning!

Thanks again.

TN panels again.
Let's stop talking about TN vs IPS - they arent in the same price range, show me an IPS with these specs for 350 and I'll buy it

How much difference does it really make? I don't know if I'm fussed about the panel too much. it's for my son and the family use.

thanks but this is a smaller screen at 14"
Confused here ... generally for regular use .. no gaming just web browsing, youtube, videos and Netflix and the occasional office based use which is better Intel or Amd? Want a quick boot laptop

support.hp.com/gb-…626

"39.6 cm (15.6") diagonal FHD IPS BrightView micro-edge WLED-backlit touch screen (1920 x 1080)"

Bigger screen than the HP I posted but smaller SSD.

I should have said, I am looking for a 14" screen.
Chimp and NK Keys - you are both fantastic. Going for this HP touchscreen thanks!!! Have a virtual beer on me tonight :)))
Can anyone tell me which is the better machine between the one posted here and this:
ebuyer.com/901…gn=
Am looking for something around the £300 mark for my daughter at high school (not really for gaming). Don't really know much about ebuyer as a company, so would probably prefer to buy from Argos, although the 3 yr warranty sounds good. Thanks
