Lenovo Z51 i7 1TB 16GB White £599 from Very

Found 3rd Oct 2015
Seems like a good deal for an i7 (doesn't specify which i7 though :|)

Better than the Currys one as it has 16GB RAM. And the white appeals to me too. Just wish it had SSD.

Few reviews on there for gaming - not sure I'd use it for that even with the 4GB dedicated GFX. There's a reason proper gaming laptops are so expensive!

FHD, decent speakers and a HDMI port. Possibly it just looks amazing in comparison to my vintage Acer Aspire, but I am seriously tempted by the buy now pay later (my bad).

I'm sure if it's not a good deal my fellow HUKD-ers will let me know! If there's better out there can you post links?!

Seems to get average reviews overall, nothing special. However for the price it's pretty good for what you are getting. As to the idiots who keep going on about superfish and so on, if you really want to harp on about it at least provide some useful information.

Don't care the damage has already been done. Bit like I would never buy a volkswagen, Bugatti, Audi or Skoda in the future.

At least VW still have a chance with you for a SEAT! Guess Lambo are ok as they are all petrol?

I presume then that

You don't eat British beef due to BSE concerns
You don't eat British chicken due to the campylobacter contamination concerns (I can go on to add various other options for other meats)
That you don't support any political parties because of X, Y and Z politicians and their causing of A, B and C events
Use any banks due to the financial crisis and the PPI problems
Buy baby products because of the contaminated milk issues in China
You don't use Argos on principle because they have so many products that have been recalled on sale. Or any other high street shops
You don't own an Apple, Dell, Sony, Lenovo, Sanyo, Toshiba, Garmin, HP or just about any other electrical device due to the various battery recalls in the last few years.
You have got rid of any Indesit and Hotpoint appliances due to the exploding washing machines issue of a few years ago

I could go on forever, but your attitude to the issue is ridiculous. You brought up an issue as if it was a fact that would cause problems to buyers of this machine.



No source to your suggestion that this is inherently installed with spyware, just a blanket quote to raise concerns of potential buyers that would likely make them skip this for no apparent reason. The majority of computer buyers know nothing about what is inside their machine and buy based entirely on the mantra of bigger number = better performance. Let me know who you're laptop or computer supplier is and I'm quite happy to provide a host of sources of reasons to get rid of it immediately by your own reasoning. The only reason the Lenovo problem was made into a major matter was because the company is now owned by the Chinese and the press decided to make a big issue out of it, similarly premium companies like Apple get a bad press when something gets blown out of proportion like "bendgate" etc because of the ubiquity of the products.

If you think Superfish was a big concern, then you really know nothing about the world of technology given some of the issues that have managed to pretty much get brushed under the carpet because the mainstream press don't consider it a chance to further their agenda.
