slightly confused by VERYS description as it states a amd fx 7500 processor and further down a i5 processor. Still hot from me.

No way those specs are correct, they've made a mistake in the description.

For some reason some descriptions on Very have the specs for an Alienware laptop, so it's just the first half

Hi bought this lapop @ tesco earlier today around £340 on here

Lenovo B50 15.6 Intel Core i5 Laptop Windows 10 4GB RAM 500GB Hybrid Black_Black

any view on which is better
Jane

Even with the AMD processor, it looks like a good deal to me, but I'm no expert. Thinking about going for it, so please let me know if I'm wrong

According to cpubenchmark.net/lap…tml the FX-7500 slightly out performs the i3 5015U which is used a lot at this budget but I have no idea if the Radeon R7 compares to Intel's new onboard GPUs.

The one you picked is probably better, but you over paid for it (It's £320 now on Tesco and even that isn't a bargain for what you're getting).

To Salfordgirl

Thank you for the feedback... not a 100 per cent sure about the price will check with Tesco and return it if they will not refund any difference

I don't know much about laptops and bought it based on recommendations here.

If you think it is overpriced could you recommend something better for the same price or less?

Thanks jane

So its has a i5 full hd and a 1060 ??

How do you get the £25 new customer discount? All I can see is an offer for a first credit order which is 10%.

Got it. You need code KH3T3 and to open a credit account.

Who is the laptop for?
What are they going to use it for?
Will they take it out of the house or not?
What's your budget, roughly?
What are the things most important to you about the laptop (Great battery life? Good screen? Starts up quickly?)

Hi Salfordgirl
The lap top is for me. I use it for email, writing reports, internet searches, watching films etc but no real gaming, just puzzles etc.
Mainly I use it in the house and only occasionally outside so battery life is not that important...
I was hoping to get something around £350ish
Most important is reliability, as reports usually have to have a quick turn around, nicely spaced keyboard as I touch type, good storage ...have started to research family history and need to store documents
Thank you for your help
Jane

This AMD is a lot better than I expected, very decent machine, especially if you add an SSD. I got mine from Amazon for £219 fairly recently but this one is still good value.

Will be comparing these to the one you got at Tesco, so when I say "Faster" etc it means in relation to that.

Few options for you:

1. pcworld.co.uk/gbu…tml

Has the same CPU. 8GB RAM. 1TB Hard drive (1 TB = 1,000 GB). Has a 1080p screen vs 768p. £299 (Can be cheaper using FluBit + 8% top cash back, which ends tonight. The cashback may be renewed tomorrow, not sure. But this will be around £270-280 after all that)

Poor battery though.

2. pcworld.co.uk/gbu…tml

Slower CPU (By about 10%). 4GB Ram. 1TB Hard drive. 1080p screen. IPS panel, which means nice colours. £299 (Again, use Flubit + Topcashback to get it around £270-280)


3.technoworld.com/dea…-10

Slower CPU (By about 20-30%). 4GB Ram. 256GB SSD. 1080p screen. £289.

The CPU may be slower, but the SSD will make up for a lot of this. The issue with that is it doesn't give you too much storage for your family history stuff. I'm not sure how much space that would realistically take though.

4. johnlewis.com/del…e6e

Everyone was going crazy for this earlier. i7, so around 15-20% faster. 8GB Ram. 1TB storage. 1080p screen. £449

Install the Flubit app and it lets you pick "create cheaper price for me" (Or use Flubit website). It then gives you £438 or so.

Then use Topcashback and you'll get 8% cashback = £402. A little over your budget, but if you like big screens and a quick CPU then this is for you.

5. amazon.co.uk/s/r…031

Warehouse deals! If you're patient and keep an eye out you can usually find some really cheap stuff here. I've got £600-700 laptops for £200~. The issue here is that you don't get a warranty and the item may come damaged. If it does you're unhappy you can always return it for free within 30 days.

All of the laptops I've picked are 1080p, which makes doing office work a lot easier and more pleasant to do. The one you got from Tesco is 760p, so the screens are around 50% better.

I'd return the laptop you got and get one of these. I'll keep an eye out if I see anything good. Few of these I got from posters on here, so cheers to them.

I sent you a reply but it's "Up for inspection"

I'm not computer savvy, I'm looking for a laptop for my parents (69)
They just want it to browse the Internet, book holidays, they print a few pics of the baby but not bothered about high quality, that's about it really, is this one good for that?
Thanks Jules

Cheers Salfordgirl, you have defintely helped me.

No way they will sell a 1060 with 6GB for 250 that's a massive loss. I will advise you to be careful with Very. It's clear they do not have a it technician doing the listing descriptions

This is also really good too

hotukdeals.com/dea…220

But slightly over your budget.

Salfordgirl
This is amazing ...i don't know how to thank you...I think I will get the first one, it seems to have all the features, apart from the poor battery four hours and is a very reasonable price... cheaper than the Tesco one.
Re no. 4 I did look at this when it came up but by the time I got my act together it was oos..although not now... however I don't think for me I will gain v much for the extra money.
I live in e. London if you are ever around I definitely owe you a drink or two

That one might be hard to find, the second one is a good bet too if it's out of stock.

Salfordgirl
Well I thought I was sorted... but not available in any stores within about 100 miles of me and not available for home delivery...oos???
Well bed now but will look at the others tomorrow
Thanks again jane

I just happened to be half-heartedly looking for a decent laptop at this price so after doing an hour or two of research on these specs compared to similar laptops in the sub £300 price range, I felt fairly confident that this would suit my needs pretty well. I'm collecting my new laptop from my local Argos on Monday afternoon and hopefully the Quidco saving will track sucessfully too. Thanks OP. BTW, I can also confirm that the i5 processor and everything listed below that line in comment #1, were inserted into the original description in error.

Should have done another 5 minutes of research. It's a poor deal compared to any of those Salford mentions, though I'd skip the technoworld one, that seems shady.

Ordered, thanks!

Can anyone help with laptop suggestions please. It's for my son. Will be used for homework (maybe). For minecraft constantly and you tube. I am getting really confused at what everything means. Ideally £300 or less if possible. Thanks.

Would this play minecraft? Very confused here also!

Thanks I did look at this one! Can you get away with spending any less would you say?

Whilst it's a good deal, shame there is no optical drive, old school I know, but its nice to be able to drop in a DVD from time to time for the kids to watch a movie

Anything can play minecraft. Even a tablet. I wouldn't worry about "picking one that can", literally any will do.

Try find a laptop with an i type CPU
Try find a laptop with a 1080 screen
Try find a laptop with an IPS panel, which makes the screen look nicer

Other than that, you can buy almost any laptop to use for homework and minecraft

Personally would not buy a laptop with an AMD cpu, too susceptible to overheating .
