CPU is around 5 years old now. Where did they dig up this old stock?

Not suggesting this is a brilliant machine but for someone with basic computing needs and wanting local disk storage it seemed a good price. No problem being proved wrong just couldn't see anything in the same price band that had the same functionality.

2514 benchmark...a lot better than the 900 benchmark atoms or celerons you see at around this price. Heat.

Not saying the deal is bad or anything, I'm just puzzled how they've suddenly come across Sandy Bridge based machines. Must be quite a story.
My old man is still using my old Sandybridge laptop i3 2310M.

To be honest he uses it for office and browsing. You don't play new games or watch 4K on this.

It won't Widi without a HDMI cable to your TV.

It will whizz through basic stuff. Considering people sell their old laptops £50-£150.
Kencol is on the money. Times past - the budget model would typically be two years behind the cutting edge. The pace of progress (or power needed for most business or personal tasks) has slackened and a 5 year old processor will deliver.

High end gaming or video editing is another matter. A very small niche - even if HUKD is somewhat overwhelmed with offers orientated towards them. Perhaps we sometimes forget that some of us come to HUKD to find the minimum amount we need to pay to 'get the job done'. That means not overspending to get benchmarks we will never use which, of course, does disappoint salespeople.

Not to mention that even the flabbiest machine can usually be inexpensively speeded up by adding a SSD, more RAM or moving the OS to Linux (maybe retaining Windows as a VM). Any two of these will make most machines fly faster than another with maybe twice the 'cpu power'.

Oh and leave dosh to spend on even more enjoyable HUKD goodies. (I recommend the Travel section).
I bought this two weeks ago, I can highly recommend it, It came to £189 as I put the code in to get £10 off if you subscribe to their news letter and for some reason I got free postage too. Its a fantastic laptop, dead quiet and super fast, it was also brand new in the original box and in my opinion never been used and is definitely not B grade. Its in a lovely brushed metal case, not a cheap plastic body. I only use it for day to day use and watching tv. I also upgraded it to Windows 10 for free at Microsoft using this hack: People who need assistive technologies still quality for the free upgrade, though Microsoft doesn't ask for any evidence that you actually use such tools.
