Only £30 off but £350 for a 15.6" laptop with 16gb ram, decent amount of hard drive and good quality processor is a bargain.

The amd's are more designed for gaming but still also a fantastic all rounder and a great choice for the price!

Agreed. Where can I find one? Argos doesn't sell a laptop that matches that description.

A10 or i3 !?! argos.co.uk/pro…246 Not quite sure how you'd use 16GB memory - unless you edit very large media...

is the A10 as fast as i5 for booting and general use opening documents, programmes, web browsing etc

I don't think so. More like an i3. Advantage might be for games. Slightly.

The A10 is not bad, assuming its an A10-7300 cpubenchmark.net/cpu…APU
Laptops from £300 should have SSDs now.

At this price point it's completely expected to have a non-ssd hard drive. Also your ssd tends to be much less capacity and in reality, cloud services are not a simple prospect so aren't a good alternative to large drives for many people.

The a10 apparently has a decent on board GPU and I suspect the high memory count is for shared memory with the GPU. Like I said AMD machines tend to gaming a bit more so that would make sense.

Not Fhd btw

I disagree. e.g.

This is FHD and with 256GB SSD which should suit non-gamers (laptops not really for gamers at this price point); I agree for media 256GB may be a bit limiting; 2 options a. external caddy or b. buy a large HDD laptop, slightly cheaper, and spend £40 on an SSD.

Mediocre laptop at a mediocre price

Rather old model - CPU now two generations behind, DDR3 rather than DDR4 (will make memory upgrades later more expensive), and only 4GB RAM. So you're compromising in other areas to get an SSD.


16gb ram seems a bit much on a device like this?

Agreed. My laptop overheats so much that it affects my sound card. And that's an AMD chipset. Would go Intel all day everyday from now on.

So which is better? this AMD or the Acer Aspire E5 i5 with 8gb ram for £399 from Argos? they both have 1366x768 screens

Value for money. simples. Have some heat.

It depends what you want it for. If you want it mostly for 3D gaming then this one. Otherwise definitely the i5

some.of them were hot (as some intels too). This is ulv cpu with 19w tdp, won't overheat. i have got two laprops with amd onboard ( hp probook upgraded to a10-5750m and lenovo z50 with fx 7500) , both laptops perform well and cause no issues.
