Looks good specs for the price, sure it's 'only' 1366x768 but it's got the all important SSD drive and a half decent CPU. Have some heat my fine fellow.
£300 for 4gb ram is pretty much standard. not bad for the other specs but really should include 6gb ram otherwise the i3 is wasted.

That's a deal breaker IMO. Unless you're an elderly person who will benefit from the larger fonts, larger icons etc, it's an anachronism in 2017 on 15.6" panel.

You become old at 25 so I would put it out there that the majority of us fit in to the 'elderly' bracket ever so snugly.

I bought Mrs Loyal a 2017 iPad the other day, I am in fact making this contribution from it, but it's pony god I hate touchscreen and just love my mice so am on the lookout for a new laptop anyone familiar with this Laptop Outlet?

Ready to pull the trigger on a £250 - £300 laptop - which one to buy ....
I think it's quite decent for the money. I paid the same amount for a similar spec but much older i3 Samsung and it's been fine. For normal users 4Gb allows a fair number of apps open, the SSD makes them run pretty quick, and the resolution has never bothered me (although I would pay slighly more if there was a higher resolution version).

The jury is out on the DVDRW drive, on the one hand I like the idea of burning DVD's from the laptop, but on the other hand I am trying to remember last time I actually did that! My current laptop has a second hard drive in the DVD bay, and I've not missed the ability to read or write DVD's.

Then clearly this isn't the deal for you and not for me either but the fact is that these lower res screens are cheap and plentiful (clerly there is a factory is China churning these out for a few dollars which is why every sub £300 laptop seems to have one) - £300 isn't much for a laptop that is above bottom of the range (I'd not call it mid range either) but it's better than the very cheapest and with current increased prices this seems a fair price to me.

I removed my DVD drive and fitted a hard drive caddy, I used the 500Gb drive I swapped out for the SSD and put all the movies on that. The kids did watch a movie on it, however I discovered the volume of sound was too low to listen to using the built in speakers! Oh that reminds me I need to add a deal for speakers I found!

You're definitely wrong about that.
I must dealt with a few hundred laptops a month via the refurbishment business I work for and this is the first time I've seen an Intel i3-6006U, which means I just haven't come across a laptop using that CPU yet. You can always learn something new in this game

Same old with HUKD, people moan it hasn't got the spec of a £400- £500 machine.

It's an entry level laptop with an industry leading cpu brand, the SSD makes it immeasurably better than a mechanical drive found in most other laptops at this price, and it's from a recognised brand. The fact it doesn't have a 1920x1080 display is simply an unrealistic expectation at this price point.

Used 120GB SSD are selling for round about £38 delivered on eBay. For the last 2 months I've been monitoring prices on there. £45+ new, £35-38 for a used one.

Well said, when I look for a product I search for it on HUKD and so tired of having to wade through pointless comments on £300 PCs for example "This doesn't have 4K, cold". "If you add an extra 2 grand you can get a i15". "This £50 laptop doesn't have HDMI, cold!".

Its so annoying. Like people leave comments just for the hell of it.

Yes you can if you want to, that's still not £30 like IamLegendFam said though, he had to resort to suggesting we buy second hand £30 SSD's from ebay rather than admit you can't buy a new SSD for £30.

Ultimately does this laptop deal represent a good deal or a hot deal? I'd say that yes it does when taking into account the price, specification and the lack of having to buy a second hand SSD from ebay

Would this laptop run Football Manager 17 comfortably?
Different people want different things from a laptop. I would argue that a nice screen (and a touchscreen) and a decent amount of RAM are much more import than CPU speed (an SSD should be a given nowadays). This laptop has a fast CPU, but what would you use that for? It has no decent GPU, it has little RAM, and a very small SSD.

For a little more money, you could get a full HD touchscreen, probably with an AMD CPU, and 8GB of RAM and a 240GB SSD. Personally, I do not want to use a laptop without QHD screen - it just makes reading so much easier. But those are rare, and clearly more expensive.

That's all vey true, this is a budget laptop plain and simple, it's just not bottom of the range, it's between bottom and mid range I guess and £300 still isn't very much for a laptop, it's just that we're all spoilt with cheap tech these days, with some exceptions of course. I'd want a better screen but I'm guessing what you're talking about is probably £400 and up so that's one third more and many / most people buy purely on price, coz 'they're all the same right?!' - at least that's what some people seem to think
Sorry to be a moany pain in the butt, but I posted a laptop with the same processor, double the RAM for 30 quid more and got ice cold.

Yes this has an SSD but its also only 128GB, so theres a space for speed tradeoff

If I was looking for something in the £250-£300 range, I'd rather take a punt on something like the EZ Book 3:

https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Jumper-EZbook-3-Pro-13-3-laptop-Intel-Apollo-Lake-N3450-6G-DDR3-RAM-IPS-screen/2216020_32811763646.html

Plug in a M.2 into the vacant slot, and that will provide the additional storage along with the 64GB eMMC. The CPU will be fine for its intended use.
yes it's a herd mentality I think, a few cold votes then others follow suit....add in the secret sauce HUKD voting formula and you get out of whack results.
