15.6" (1366 x 768 HD Resolution) according to manufacturer code.

218.49 with NUS, looks good for a budget laptop, heat added

hot thanks. wondering about getting a laptop for my son and good graphics would be great. alternative is to get a desktop and use steam streaming. hmmmm

Just looked at amazon page. while not sure it is for me just yet... this is a great deal for anyone looking. lots of memory. reasonable processor and graphics. well balanced. i have a dell xps 18 i3 and graphics let it down. this should be much better though i normally use cpu benchmark for processors and not sure whicj is best for comparing graphics

cpubenchmark.net/cpu…375

cpu benchmark around 3300. vs 5500 for my i5. so around i3 performance. excellent for this price. anyone know how graphics would compare between this and say my desktop gtx750ti which plays everything great and my atom netbook or i3 dell xps 18 which both use some form of intel graphics hd.

battery life?

oh only 4 hours. half that and it is 2. i half as batteries always die. my netbook has about 8 to start with on atom processor. maybe atom netbooks and a refurbished desktop steam streaming is the way to go.

Decent laptop spec and brand for £230. Heat

This deal back once again. Bought this laptop a few times for in laws. Sound is great on it too, so no need for a sound bar like previous laptops.

Specs are good for the price. Replace the hard drive with a 250gb SSD (£60ish) and stick the spare in a caddy to store your media files.

Someone has asked the question if it come in its original box answer No and only has three months warranty.

my 5 y/o i5 dell is quicker than this lump

Good bang for the buck, useful for new uni students. Heat added.

Looks like a great deal but I can't work out whether this is brand new or a refurb. Why only a 3 month warranty and not in the original box?

The built in graphics are going to be a small step up from the built in Intel so don't expect even half the performance if your desktop gpu

Where does it say 'refurbishment' ?
Thanks op - orderen one with 3 year warranty

looks a nice spec machine however amazon are showing 2 different laptops, 1 having a full sized keyboard and the other not.
it is sold and full filled by Amazon so I would assume it has a 12 month warranty.

FIFA 16 on high, 720p
BF4 on low-medium 720p
GTA V on low, 800x600
Mafia II on low, 720p
Skyrim on low, 720p (60fps)

Just off the top of my head

anyway specs are good for the price. but I had one of these cheap Lenovos and build quality was horrible.

sent it back as the fan died within a week of having it.

I never said it was a refurb but Liston2 above mentions that no original box and only 3 month warranty. How did you manage 3 year warranty?

Good deal for around the £200 mark, especially since drop in value of GBP. Heat added.

How easy is it to remove Lenovo bloat ware?? I'm tempted but the reputation of Lenovo put me off.

It's got bad reviews.

Does this have an R7 260/260x? Surely at native resolution (768p) or output to a TV at 720p you could use this for some light gaming.

If you avoid GPU intensive effects like MSAA and use half-refresh rate v-sync for 30fps it will probably be acceptable (might even get 60fps on Rocket League with low/med settings). Of course if you specifically want to play games a PS4 or XBox would be much better for the price.

Type in "AMD FX-7500" into YouTube for a fair few examples of the cpu/gpu been benchmarked

Always better to a format and do a fresh reinstall from the Windows Media tool. If you don't know how, there are plenty of instructions on the net

From my own experience, laptops eventually run into problems that you always have to fix, until the next one pops up. A desktop will be more sturdy and last longer without as many problems. But it will take more space. But with more space the computer has more space to breath compared to a laptop, which stops it from overheating. If he plans to play games a desktop is definitely the best option for you.

May I check you are saying you'd expect the games you listed to play on the laptop in this deal?

I'd never have thought I'd get to play skyrim on it and would make me interested to put up with the higher energy consumption over an Intel processor!

not voting hot or cold as I do not know the deal
but I can tell you that I would advise everyone to stay away from Lenovo. I was a massive fan of IBM laptops had hoped that Lenovo kept the same level of quality.

unfortunately not, I have had the misfortunte of owning four of their devices (2 tablets, 1 mob phone (Motorola), and a laptop) over the last three years. Not one of them worked properly and they had to go back to seller and I was lucky enough to get refunds on three; and they 'fixed' the fourth (tablet). Ruined my holiday two times as I needed the devices while away from home.

Obvious question - why buy 4 if the first 2 didn't work! Circumstances ...

It's just above the yellow ADD TO BASKET box & bellow the Quantity ordered box, mate.
