I can't see enough in the picture. What is the full spec?

You don't get much for £349. If this has a Core i3, 1050ti GPU and 8GB of RAM it will play most games at 1080p

If that is all you have in your budget to spend, it wouldn't be a bad buy.

looks like a good price for a first gaming machine!
Pretty good price!
What's the product code on it?
Good price, I'd nab this for a living room gaming PC if it was in my local

Yeah that's the one!! Sorry I'm abit clueless on this stuff lol
Would it be good for music production too?
Yeah definitely a desktop the link was right
Difficult to vote for this until I know what the spec is.
What store was this
LENOVO™ LEGION Y520 TOWER DATASHEET
Stevenage
I would buy it, will run a lot of popular stuff like Fortnite at 1080p at a half decent frame rate. You would struggle a bit to self build for that price but if you did you could make sure the components such as the PSU and case support upgrading. This would make a good media machine also.

Ok thanks
Bugger, I can't see this online else I would of ordered one. I'm assuming it's store special?

Ah my mistake
Buy it, I would
We purchased this for my nephew from Lenovo direct and its not a bad machine for basic gaming. It was running Fortnite on Epic settings at around 58-60fps which isn't bad, that was on a 1440p at 75hz. Think its a bargain for a first time gamer and can be upgradable as well.
Still quite a lot of games that aren't well optimized for multiple cores / threads & clock speed is 3.9ghz which is credible. I would change the graphics card before the processor.

First day at HUKD school I see. Try the “quote” button, it helps people know you’re responding to their comments and also stops you from looking a little crazy like you’re rambling to yourself 😬 🏻

It will only be store specific based on stock availability. Price should be national. Op to a local, ask for a stock check for this model.
OP if you have the 6 digit SKU code it would help. Might be in your pic but I can zoom in enough. Just to left of the barcode at bottom of label.

As for spec ok for price. Could do with a £30 SSD for the OS, in time a 7400 or 7600 would probably drop in. Plus maybe more RAM. All future considerations over a must now.

I'm pretty sure it's 201653-I did a bit of digging and think it's as per pcworldbusiness.co.uk/cat…53W but when I called up to check availability they said they didn't have stock of the i3 any longer, just the i5

Don’t phone customer services. They only do a centralised stock check. Only a store can check clearance items. A stupid thing they’ve been doing for the last 12+ years.
A store can also check all other in the region. They can even call a store for you to reserve. You can then either pay where you are and go collect or pay at the other store.
Any chance of running battlefield 5?

It's been a while but how can an i3 be classed as a gaming cpu


this one is actually pretty capable and has hyperthreading for 4 threads

the 8th gen i3s are true quad core so i'd say from now on an i3 is fine for most games
