He has a point though £400 is a fair bit of money and you would expect decent ram for the price.
Pretty "meh" laptop IMO. Although it has a 14" screen, the laptop itself is bigger, bulkier, thicker and heavier than your typical 14" laptops. Part of the reason are the huge bezels around the screen, the hefty 1.8kg weight etc. If you're looking for something portable, this isn't it. Keyboard is very mediocre and the one I used experienced strange keyboard lag when certain Windows apps. The screen has a glossy coating and is very reflective in terms of office lights, windows etc. Be aware that the WD 1TB SSHDs that they use in these are prone to failure and no amount of consumer grade recovery software will retrieve your data. It's far better to have an SSD or HDD not a SSHD hybrid drive as their failure rates are higher.

But this is decent RAM. That's my point. It's not DDR2, DDR3 is still quick enough for a system such as this.

Lets just agree to disagree.

I have DDR3 in my main PC which I use for gaming still. Yes it is sufficient. However I bought my RAM 4-5 years ago. If I was buying a new laptop now for around £400 I would expect to get DDR4 RAM.

An I3 with 4GB RAM and a 500GB normal hdd (not sshd) would be sufficient for what most people will use this laptop for. However the point still stands that it is around £400 and therefore one should expect budget-mid range specs but still the latest generation.

7think7 did not say the technology was useless, that was your own judgement. I agree with them that for this price you should expect DDR4 that is all.

Don't be so quick to criticise perfectly valid comments.

Thanks for the suggestion, though I'm looking for 15.6 screen ideally. I don't need it till new job in a month or so, I'm just keeping an eye out atm (prime day was annoyingly bad)

One of the most important things when buying a laptop for a Uni student is getting one that's reasonably thin and light. Otherwise, lugging around a hulking laptop along with textbooks all day will drive him/her nuts and they probably won't tell you about it so as not to cause offence!

The other 2 things worth looking about for are:

- good battery life (desks in libraries, lecture halls aren't necessarily adjacent to power sockets and you can't realistically leave a laptop unattended whilst charging).
- a decent keyboard (for obvious reasons!)

I'd give this Lenovo a big swerve if you're looking for a laptop for a student.
Agree on all points, and want to add probably better to also get one with pen support in my son's case..

May be a factor for other parents to consider when buying thier children a PC for university
