Link not working, this should work

pretty decent deal actually, 1920 x 1080 is a welcome addition. low power i5 (i5-5200u) but should be fine for general use but an SSD would be a useful addition, should be fairly cheap to add one. heat
Finally a FHD posted
Any thoughts on running Photoshop on this?
Hot! I've been looking for a small form laptop with FHD all weekend!

If you want to run photoshop then you might consider looking for something with a larger screen and dedicated graphics... It'll most likely cost you a bit more though.
There's two on the website. ...look the same but one has a hybrid drive.

Is that the only difference? Surely that is the better option? Am i missing something?
I assumed that was the better option

It will run fine. I have a similar specced lenovo machine and it runs photoshop no problem.
Looks like a seriously good bargain, and nice and stylish too.
Core i5 (dual core plus hyperthreading, though not to confuse with a desktop-class quad core).
1.5kg - this will feel light in the hand.
A 1TB hard drive, though with 8GB of flash, so will feel faster than a crappy 5400 standard hard drive in regular windows use (though of course file transfer is going to be slow).

One of the best laptop deals i've seen this week, if you value portability and design as well as function.
The screen is 1080, the screen is 1080, order has been restored in the Uneee verse! A little song I made up for this special occasion.
The 1TB + 8GB SSD is the same price £399.00. Links see M to take you to Very homepage. Just type in Lenovo u31 in the search menu.

Seems a scorching price!

Also, keep in mind this is NON-TOUCHSCREEN according to the very website.

Think it would be wise to check some reviews on it. But for the money it seems solid!

How do you edit a comment on the app?
1Tb (1000Gb) + 8Gb SSD hybrid storage

Hard Drive Storage: 120 GB

​it is very small for gaming isn't it?
I paid the extra £29.99 to extend the warranty to three years,seems quite reasonable.
Just ordered the hybrid one. Cheers op.

Minecraft will run just fine,videos should be a breeze.You only need to spend more if he is into more advanced gaming like Batman/console type games.Happy Christmas.
Wow, I've been looking into smaller netbooks / laptops the last week or so. 11-13" was a must, but I couldn't really find a suitably priced machine in that size that actually had some umpf behind it too, at this price I just have to bite. That size and specs is amazing for the price. Thank you very much OP.

Also got another £30 off using this code.

hotukdeals.com/vou…930

essentially you just click the credit account option at checkout, then setup your very account to that (it's not a proper credit check, just a very fast informal process), then you can use that code. It took less than 30 seconds to do, a couple of minor options to pick. Also then you have the option to pay within 3 months interest free. So if you want to get this but can't afford it with xmas, you could pay it off (369.99) + a couple quid for delivery in full in January/February with no interest. The minimum payment is covered by the £30 off coupon, it's applied as a payment made to your account. Loophole much. So either pay it off by credit/debit card on your very account at 124.66 a month, whenever you want to make a payment. Or pay it all off at once by card (373.98) as soon as order has gone through. Or wait a month, two months etc to pay in full. Very flexible.

I've been waiting for a while now to get a new 13 Inch laptop.
Almost bought the Asus Zenbook UX305 (a great little machine) when it went to £500, but decided to wait for the new versions (which should be around £600 when they hit the shops).

But this Lenovo is an absolute steal at £400 and the small amount of reviews I could find (e.g. http//youtube.com/watch?v=IbPbXu7qVx4) suggest it's a good bit of kit.

I'm hoping that my TopCashBack New Account 10.5% cashback will track saving another £40.

I've always been suspicious of VERY as a company, but decided to try them out and used the Buy Now Pay Later, so don't even have to pay for the laptop for 12 months (interest free).

Crossing my fingers that all the deals work as hoped and the laptop is as good as it looks.

Big thanks to the OP for the post!!

Cheers, Derek
3.99 delivery ?
I've read some comments about bad battery life (around 2 hours) ...anyone with experience of using this model confirm or deny?
How does this compare to this:

Wondering if there is much benefit for the higher spec, it's just for browsing, Microsoft suit work some picture editing and limited video editing.

Essentially the same, same CPU, same hybrid HDD, same RAM. Form factor separates them. Considering that one is bigger in size and costs MORE, it just makes this one look even more of a steal, especially with the extra £30 off.

I've just noticed the other one is not full hd 1920 x 1080. Only 1366 x 768. So, overall that's a lesser machine.

£50 more expensive, weaker screen but it does have the benefit of the additional graphics card which makes it a pretty decent offer too.
Is the keyboard backlit?
bought one , with 12 months option
Where does it state that U41 from currys has additional graphics card?
This is a bargain.

Buy it now.
Do either of these have DVD players? I can't see it in the spec? TIA.

No they don't have any optical drives.
Looking for cheap laptop for my parents for Christmas. £400 too much but if I can replace mine, I will give them my old one. Link is below. Doesn't seem a massive upgrade in performance? Does this have a backlit keyboard?

JL only sell the i7 version of this
Nice to see a laptop on HUKD that doesn't have an optical drive (and is therefore slimmer). I can't remember the last time I user a CD/DVD in my laptop; and I have an external drive for those rare occasions.
Some links to help you decide (not that there will doubtless be variations in the spec):
