No reduction in core performance at all. Safari may take a hit of 1.5-2.5% …No reduction in core performance at all. Safari may take a hit of 1.5-2.5% in performance, but I'm pretty sure that'll be fixed in the next major release of MacOS.



I would keep an eye on that statement, even Intel have finally admitted their fix causes a 2-14% slowdown in some processes (but doesnt say which ones), even on the latest ranges, which are supposed to be much less reliant on the duff coding.
Now, it may well be that the slow downs are in areas that the normal user will never notice; AWS are reporting a 30% increase in cpu usage after the fix, but say they have enough spare capacity to avoid slow downs for customers.

Programming language also seems to be an issue; there have been reports on some coding forums about various things, including Python slowdowns of 30+ %, with one guy reporting a database slowdown of 47%.

One other thing, Intel are now admitting the micro-code fix seems to have made some Intel cpus unstable; so another fix is being fettled as we speak.

PC World checkout with multipl gift cards are fine, no complaints from the cashier, but it would nice to just warn the people behind you that it's going to take a while and better to join other queues.

Morrisons checking out is also fine, as long as you are not in Cambourne branch. As some mentioned already in previous post, you need at least two Morrisons More cards to accumulate all points.

Also, I can confirm Morrisons own gift vouchers (like below) can be used to purchase third party gift cards without any problems. Only issue is those discounted gift vouchers (not for everyone, ask your employer if your company is enrolled in a perk scheme for those) can not be bought instantly, you have to wait for them to arrive by post.33054834-xkrVN.jpg

It seems Amazon's already withdrawan the record low price, I'll just mark this as expired, hope some of you had managed to get the bargin already. Or those who haven't done so, you can track Amazon's price and set a price drop alert from camelcamelcamel.com.

Happy weekend shopping guys.

This would work for any product from pc world. Not just the Mac. This is how I got of iPhone X lol. Good work mate though

In the other thread about the surface pro m3 version available from amazon during christmas, people mentioned that MS customer service was pretty bad as well.

I ended up buying the m3 version from amazon and for casual use, i have no issues with it

Buy direct from Microsoft.

I'm thinking of buying a cheap pen from eBay for my surface 2017. There seem to be decent looking ones for around 20 quid but does anyone have one and could comment on performance?

Not sure what the strap is like but I'd never go back to using one of these.

Laptop backpack is much more convenient and I don't have to worry about the strap breaking.

Always found these sore on my shoulder but the ones I used to have were a lot tackier and laptops were heavier then

Spending good money on a laptop and buying a cheap bag to protect it doesn't make sense to me.

The dimmers are great for older people, kids, guests in your home who wouldn't even know what to ask Alexa/Google.
It's also handy at night, where if others are in bed I don't have a voice assistant shouting things like "Okay, turning off 3 lights" and waking everyone up.

And in my living room I've got 5 Lights, so using it to set a scene is nice.

Oh right. Display model at store had a Western Digital, so was surprised to find a Seagate, but seems like they used different brands as they please!

Yea, this Seagate has a unique whine at times...not the usual hard drive related noise.

@rred88 just had a quick look is a Toshiba drive, is pretty noisy too. Might replace it at some point as its pretty annoying sounds louder than the fan.

Have opened the laptop, which was pretty easy, no security labels to break which was a bonus. Installed a m.2 ssd and another 8 gb ram(found second hand for £35) now running smooth and fast.

Question for new owners of this laptop...What is the brand of the 1TB hard drive inside it? You can see the model number in Device manager. (STxxx is Seagate and WD.... is Western Digital)

Will this play call of duty?

They'll also brain you for calling them "the Orkneys". It's either Orkney or the Orkney islands.

And, as far as I can tell, none of the PC World range of shops have ever actually reached that far north.

ao.com/pro…spx - been posted on here a few times, and £299 is about the most expensive it is. There are quite a few examples knocking around of <£300 laptops at a higher spec, also including this one from PC World - hotukdeals.com/dea…961

The A6-9220 is quite a poor processor, hence why PC World call this a "Social" laptop - i.e. only suitable for people who want to open it and use Facebook/Skype, which makes a lot of the other spec a bit irrelevant. I dread to think what it would run like with 800MB+ of photos/videos on the HDD.

Just protect your investment with a case or skin. Also buy a jacket with inside pockets, never a good idea to keep a £500 device in your back pocket, unless of course you don't mind damaging your smartphone (any smartphone).

I'd adjust the adblock settings or stop browsing crappy websites with too many ads. Without Adblock my Desktop i5-6600k would often fully utilize one whole core running Firefox only. It seems Chrome can utilize more than one cores to run ads in the background - for better or worse.

I'm typing this on a N4200 which is roughly as fast as your N3450. And on Win 10 mine shows 15% CPU utilization for Chrome browsing 14 tabs at the moment, which includes a flash game in the background. Compared to my desktop it is slower, but it's nothing I notice as annoying. The biggest difference is the limited main memory on mine (4GB) which seems to limit the number of tabs chrome keeps active.

I think the problem is not your CPU, but your setup or what you do. I've seen websites behave badly on my 12 core workstation at work.

I've found TT to be very poor.

TakTalk are often nice! You just need to be polite to them. Shouting goes not get you anywhere.

TalkTalk kindly paid my BT early termination charge of £66 on my second line. The Ombudsman agreed BT should not have charged me and so BT paid me £66 back plus £20. This is effectively £7.16 discount a month on top of Qudico cashback (£5.83/month equivalent)! So I pay around £5 month for ADSL and line rental Keep switching on 12-month deals and play the game!

When they could not give a free sim, they gave me £20 off instead (I did not need the sim).

Come May, I will leave BT Fibre for the next deal. I seem to collect routers!

o2 charged me £400 early termination charge on a mobile when I cancelled within 14 days. I got £50 compensation and a refund. They did it twice, so 2x£50.

A bank refused to transfer my fixed rate bond to my single nominated account as I signed up to when opening a joint account and I persuaded the Ombudsman to order them to pay me 8% interest for the 1 month delay.

Samsung refused to repair a 1 year old phone (2 year warranty) - I filed a claim in the small claims court online. I laughed.

Have you got RAM slot? what is the maximum RAM? what about battery life? Does currys allow opening backcover to install new RAM / SSD?

The CPU is more limiting than the 4GB of RAM here.

Terrible display, and really no redeeming features.BTW my T100 Chi was pretty well faultless, it would occasionally lose connection to keyboard, but for the price I couldn't complain.


I suppose it depends what you’re looking for. The Jumper 3 Pro is twice the weight, nearly half the battery life, larger footprint, no stylus, can’t be used as a tablet, doesn’t have touchscreen as far as I can see. So there may be a few redeeming features for some users.

Did the same, was told to go away, as they do not price match themselves.

None in stock anywhere near Wickford in Essex. 😞

I panicked and just purchased these on ebay before the 20% off deal ended lol, good to see the positive comments here though !

Heat from me - picked one up Christmas Eve - it sounds great.
They applied the discount at the till when I showed them the HUKD's post

Richer Sounds sell the C7, i telephoned them today to confirm it.To people saying RS will price match...... the TV is £1499 in RS so it's the same price, no need for any price matching. You get 6 year warranty so no point buying it from PC World/Currys


6 year GUARANTEE not warranty! Guarantee is far far better!

If you can watch the new Ghostbusters movie in 4k hdr on it. Movie sucks but effects are amazing

Got mine delivered today. Great TV!!
£70 topcashback. 8% extra off thanks to a works reward program. Check if your employer does one, lots do. I work for Royal Mail, my friend works for Vue Cinemas, we both have the same deal. You have to buy gift vouchers. Extra faff on, but 8% of £1500 is £120. So for me:

£1500 Sale price
-£120 (gift voucher purchase of £1500 cost £1380 via Royal Mail with the 8% discount)
-£70 Topcashback (Has already tracked!)
£1310 final cost to me

Great if you are lucky enough to have an employer that has a deals for employees scheme. Have a look before you buy.

Richer Sound stock the C7 Model. I got my 65C7 from them. They're just not allowed to list it online.

Finally picked one up yesterday. Amazing TV. Great smart features and apps. Sound is awesome. Thanks op. Held out as long as we could for a discount but we don't regret buying now, even at this price.

This has the better (DDR5) version of the 940mx gpu.


Doesn't really matter though with this laptop as Dell have crippled the thermal limit on the GPU. With standard 940MX, Nvidia have the thermal limit set at 90C. In this machine, Dell have crippled it by setting the thermal limit to 70C and there is no way to change it.

Fire up any sort of modern(ish) game even at low resolutions, and it begins throttling within a couple of minutes at which point performance drops off significantly.

Last night it was down to 647.... but not this morning ... That'll teach me to dither.... !
