Looks a decent price for a light gaming laptop. You'll want to upgrade to SSD but that's cheap enough.

No, it shows the correct price after going to checkout form basket. Do you have prime as its prime exclusive price?
Think this might be only a 2gb graphics card. Suitable for some at this price, but not for me. Not voted either way.

Indeed it is the 2 GB. I'd like to see a benchmark that compares the 2 GB vs 4 GB versions, I haven't been able to find one thus far.
I have the exact same, bought from warehouse deals 1 week ago for £404. This absolutely needs m.2 ssd otherwise is a pain to use. It comes with ... version of windows which uses 100% hdd all the time and you just can't use it. So fresh windows and ssd will make this laptop great! Have only played CS GO so far on it but no problem - around 150fps

Sorry for stupid question but whats the difference between m.2 ssd and a 2.5 inch ssd is it just the size/how its fitted internally and does this laptop allow either type of ssd to be installed please?

Correct, and both types can be installed. The 1TB HDD is in the slot that a 2.5 inch SSD would go in. The m.2 slot is separate, so you can have an m.2 ssd in addition to the 1TB HDD.
Thanks for the reply, just one more question is there a preference over the m.2 and 2.5" ssd is one faster / better?

Exactly this; companies refuse to accept that it's a problem yet keep pumping out non-SSD computers acting as if everything is fine. You NEED an SSD for Windows 10.

I would recommend the m.2. You need 256GB for windows and some games (i only use ssd for competitive games, other i throw on the hdd). Speed is different on different brands but would not be that great of a difference. I only don't recommend the WD green series as they have very slow write speed.

Hmmm I just bought one too, I guess either lots of people will be disappointed, or they had more than one?
Are these usually in good condition from the warehouse? Seems like a good price

Think I will just go for one from uk.crucial.com later. They have online tools for you to pick the right one.

There is very little practical difference between the performance of modern SSDs, so I would say just pick a cheaper one. Of course, don't take my word for it and do your own research. Any SSD will be a dramatic improvement over a HDD.
Thanks
I’m not into computers but pretty poor reviews on Amazon?!!! Average 3 out of 5?!! Great price though to be fair!!

Those reviews are at £700+ though to be fair, the deal is good.

Personally I don't get why anyone makes a laptop without an SSD anymore for boot. I don't know much about computers, but it seems to make more difference than anything else in my experience for very little money.
Spend a few more quid and go for at least a 1060 or 1070 card.
Anyone ever get an item from them? What did you think of the condition 'like new'??

I think that it's a very naughty way to give NO manufacturer warranty at all for no good reason. You get the 30-day return from Amazon and that's it.

This line was meant to go to market in the UK with both 1TB and 128GB SSD installed originally. Pretty sure that the US version did.

I remember bringing up the topic "SSDs v Spinning discs " a couple of years back when SSDs started dropping in price . Same question - why aren't all Laptops fitted with SSDs as standard these days ?

Someone provided a link to some tech magazine that showed there were hundreds of millions of "spinning discs " bought but not used , so it would be quite some time before ssds would take over . Seems the guy was right - manufacturers just using up dirt cheap old stock of about 2014 vintage .

Maybe the old stock is running out now

That would be ideal. I don't mind a traditional HDD for storage, but once you start booting off an SSD there's no going back!
I've ordered this in 256gb and 512gb versions for the two laptops in this deal. Just gotta read up on whether to clone the OS over or start afresh.

What's the difference between what the op said and what you said? The op said "You get the 30-day return from Amazon and that's it." and you said "You have 30 days to return it, but not a 30 day warranty".

Thing is having an HDD doesn't always prevent a manufacturer putting an SSD in as well. Most Laptops I've looked at that ship with an SSD and no HDD use the M.2 slot. Either way there's clearly still a market for it, presumably many buyers still want larger storage and so go for the HDD laptop.

"Here you go son, the lad at the store tried to flog me one with only 256gb of storage but I held out for this here beauty with 1 Tetrabyte* and I only paid £30 more for it"

*Someone I work with.

By a bit now you mean 50% more? Don't think 200 extra can be seen as a trivial amount. This will do most games in moderate settings at 1080p
Thanks OP. I have this ordered. I'm keeping an eye out for a 480Gb M.2 SSD at a good price and the first thing I'll do is format to remove bloatware, then re-install windows to SSD. Between that and checking the 3D rendering is set to GeForce, it should overcome most of the negative reviews on Amazon. Thanks again.
Mines been dispatched and I ordered early this morning, let's hope it is good when it arrives, thx for posting the deal OP
Mine arrived via special delivery, look's brand new, not a mark on it, alot bigger than I expected as i'm use to a 13.3".

Amazon support just told me the warranty is 12 months...

16 July 2019 15:41:30 DrBunker : Hi, as per the message above, I've not ordered it yet. I'm enquiring about the warranty on warehouse items

16 July 2019 15:41:58 Ailene (CSA) : I see. May I ask the link?

16 July 2019 15:42:21 DrBunker : amazon.co.uk/gp/…sed

16 July 2019 15:43:38 Ailene (CSA) : Thank you for the details. Please allow me a minute to check this for you.

16 July 2019 15:47:40 Ailene (CSA) : May I ask where you can see the say, 12 months because of faulty hardware?

16 July 2019 15:48:47 DrBunker : It's just a general question - the reviews are quite negative and I don't want to be caught out by a short warranty

16 July 2019 15:51:53 Ailene (CSA) : I understand. No worries, you have a 12 months warranty for defective item. You may return it for a full refund.

16 July 2019 15:51:57 Ailene (CSA) : For warehouse deals item.

16 July 2019 15:52:02 Ailene (CSA) : This is directly from Amazon.
