Ok guys whats the catch here


TN screen is poor. Very low brightness, bad colour representation, narrow viewing angles. But the machine otherwise is good if you can live with that. It's a budget machine and so it's not going to be perfect. You have to find at least another £100 to do better on that front most likely.
If only it didnt look like a 2008 laptop I'd buy it.

More than enough. Whatever others may say, I've found 4 GB RAM, a decent i3 processor, Win 10 and SSD is plenty for online browsing, streaming and day to day spreadsheets, powerpoint and word. I've had several windows and tabs open too.

This laptop surpasses that and also allows light gaming.

As long as you get the right connectors and mounts anything like this is possible - they aren’t specific to manufacturers or custom-made. I’ve upgraded the Dell E7440 machines I use to IPS full HD panels, made a massive different to usability. But a dim display might not be the worst thing ever - if you’re using it at a desk, maybe a good desktop monitor is a better purchase?

Price-wise, this machine is mostly unbeatable for the money, it has everything you’d want or expect from more expensive machines - other than a premium chassis.

well currys sell the 330s 14 inch with 4gb and an i3 8 th gen for 350 , id say thats a better deal, 4gb should be fine for most things, plus i guess itmcan be upgraded. the only down side i could tell is the case
is a bit plasticky

I'd go for this, it's got a better IPS screen, same type of display that are used on phones. Great for browsing and watching YouTube.
Intel i3 is fast enough for everyday tasks.

Update. Sorry everyone, I was wrong, this has a TN display also.
Edited by: "win26" 9th May
With TN displays you have to look at your laptop perfectly aligned like how you would to use the 3D effect in 3DS for full effect that's how bad the viewing angles is on TN

Sticking with this screen for years is not worth it
This also looks to be a good deal, slightly larger screen, A9 processor and £30 less.

Like everything it's what matters to you and what you will use it for but one thing to point out is that the Ryzen onboard graphics are far superior to anything Intel can offer.

The A9 is god awful - please don’t buy this for the sake of saving £30, you will live to regret it. Ryzen 5 at £349 is a bargain. The A9 was outdated the moment it launched in 2016...

Well, you're getting an awful lot of computer for £349 so I think the phrase 'beggars can't be choosers' springs to mind - modern quad-core CPU, decent integrated graphics, 256GB SSD, full HD display and honestly, the casing gets a pass from me, you can pay £150 more for the Matebook D - I'd say it's more like a 2013-4 machine.

I will actually promise you that you won't regret paying the extra £30 for the Ryzen 5. I hate synthetic benchmarks but this is pretty telling:

289th vs 760th (out of 1157) - basically top 20% vs. bottom third.

It's great other than the display which is allegedly dim and lifeless - it's crisp but colour reproduction isn't much cop.
I've got this, it's great!

I feel it's important to see a screen before writing a review about it. I find most laptops out there, even up to the £500 to £600 price mark, have dim screens. Doesn't seem to bother most people, but it's my biggest gripe when it comes to laptops. I don't agree a TN screen is necessarily a poor choice (macbook pros used them for years and no one complained). There are a lot of crap IPS screens out there; their only inherent advantage is better viewing angles. But if you listen to a lot of internet commentary, you'll find a lot of people saying IPS screens are a must-have; I disagree with that. This laptop is a great all-round package, good price, strong performance, comparable to an intel i5 broadly speaking, for most people who don't need very heavy lifting like the latest video-games or other CPU intensive work. but always see the screen yourself before buying (if you can). Saying that, you can still play a huge portion of games available on Steam with this laptop

Posted this the last time this was listed, I personally own the laptop. It has an awful screen and not just because it's a TN panel (some tn panels are decentm but this one is like something from a 15 year old laptop), I use it connected to a monitor as it's my second laptop. It's a shame because the processor is brilliant.
This reputable review site goes into detail on the similar Lenovo V30-14IKB (same chassis & screen, different cpu). They hate the screen - to the point they wouldn't recommend it. They also say Lenovo offers no variant with an IPS screen - so not looking good for screen swaps...

After buying a Lenovo ideapad and the plethora of problems it had (appalling build quality, screws falling out, extremely slow and laggy straight out of the box..)and finally returning it to Amazon after 6 months when the fan started making a horrific noise, I dont think I could touch another Lenovo product. I'm sure there are varying degrees of good and bad when it comes to their products but they must have very poor quality control and googling around these were all common problems for that line. Can anyone recommend a decent laptop for around the £250-350 mark?
The problem with this is the Ryzen 5 chip. It throttles badly.

however some clever bods on the internet have come up with ways to get around this by adjusting various settings so you get a better experience.

if it’s just internet, but of spreadsheet and streaming you’ll be fine

That’s the problem, your expecting a lot for not very much, don’t forget your in tablet territory here so you either get cheap but highly underpowered laptops or premium tablets.

Buy a used one off eBay that’s a few years old.

My main computer still runs on a sandy bridge i5, why? For £10 for the cpu it does the business and tbh I don’t notice the speed difference over the work computer which has a Kaby lake i5 in it.

I don't think having a computer that doesn't have screws falling out, laggy out the box or a faulty fan is expecting a lot. I've always bought laptops in that price range from Asus, Acer etc and never had these issues. My £200 Chromebook ran better than this thing. I'm fine with a basic laptop for YouTube, web browsing etc.

Panels can be swapped though. I did it with my old 11.6" gaming laptop, though admittedly none of the panel mounts worked so the panel was stuck to the inside of the lid with double sided sticky pads. The problem will be finding the best panel to replace it with. Too many variables there like connection type, connection bandwidth, limits of the hardware if you're trying to go above current resolution, replacement panel quality, replacement panel mounting points etc.
What res and frame rate would this run league of legends at? Is there anyway to check?
