Hardly going to set the world alight with basic specs, but similar processor/screen models retail for around the £230 mark, so a good deal for A1 refurb in my opinion for anyone interested in a basic laptop for social media and basic productivity with decent battery life.

Good review (7.9/10) at Expert Reviews [here]
Not to burst the bubble, but wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

Windows 10 on a 32GB hard drive, plus word & excel and you're already nearing the limit of what you can store on there. Add on a few pictures, videos and music and you're just ducked.

honestly save an extra £50 and get something refurbed for around £220
Avoid. Very slow processor. In my opinion.

I knew this was coming, this laptop clearly is not for you or for me. Whilst I have just splashed out that on an X240, not everyone needs a powerful laptop. This is a grade A1 (not an ex-lease) at a good price, for basic computing on the go with a longer battery life than my i5 Haswell processor can last.

Peeps have differing needs.

Did I not specify it is a basic laptop? Can you find better for the price for those after exactly what it is?

Where does your nonsense end? You are recommending a tablet, add the dock for £50 and it is £200, for that price you can turn round and say why not buy an i5 X240 laptop like I did and have a bigger screen and a 256GB SSD or spend an extra £30 and get a Thinkpad Helix Second Gen tablet with its dock.

add the dock for £50


Dock optional; use USB keyboard and/or mouse; good CPU, memory and 128GB SSD; ok, screen is 11" but usable?

Portability an option?! Where can you find a low power 11hr 30mins runtime N3050 laptop for £160 elsewhere?

How many more times, refer back to #7 going round in circles here.

There is nothing here for you or me, your recommendation is apples vs oranges, you can of course buy a 4 year old gen 2 i3/i5 for this money you could retort...etc etc etc.

​Its definitely not for me, but part of my day to day job is recommending laptops and telling ordinary people the reason why theyre so **** off with their cheap as **** laptop.

So, what would you recommend for £159 then? A four year old beat up laptop with zero battery life? Strange then that reviews do not think it or other budget N3050 laptops are crap.

As I said, it is not for me either, but for anyone after a new (A1 refurb) laptop rather than risking some old, power hungry laptop for doing basic computing on what is there not to like.

I already stated in my description header "Hardly going to set the world alight with basic specs, but similar processor/screen models retail for around the £230 mark, so a good deal for A1 refurb in my opinion for anyone interested in a basic laptop for social media and basic productivity with decent battery life."

So yes, a deal is a deal. Your own opinion on what makes a crap laptop is just simply that, your own opinion. For anyone after a low power laptop with excellent battery life to do such basic tasks on then it is an excellent deal compared to the usual £230 retail price of such.

Unless of course you can post anything better for a similar price in your so called day to day job. Perhaps try posting a few of those 'deals' on here instead of lurking.

*sigh* Once again...how many other times....Whilst you and I may be into buying older laptops (mine being a late-circa 2014) Thinkpad X240 i5 430U you are trying to compare apples to oranges.

Is there much point anyone that wants a basic laptop to risk spending £90 on a power hungry Ivy Bridge laptop with questionable battery life at that age for an ex-lease business laptop.

Whilst you and I may take such gambles, and personally I prefer newer ex-lease stuff...there are plenty of users out there that have no need for a powerful CPU, particularly ones as old as that which sap power.

Not much cop for what this particular N3050 is designed for, low power use.

I never posted this deal for it to turn into a comparison with bargain business laptops, there are plenty of other deal threads for that, each of which come with various pros and cautionary cons.

your story would be true if not for specifically the last link i dropped having a low power mode switching the cpu down to 800mhz with the press of a button and with a usage of just over 1.5 Watt making it even at reduced speed a better system then the n3050's 6 Watts. The battery is also more powerful and thus runtime will be greater. weather or not the posted box is a good deal or not very much depends on individual wishes indeed but even then if there are better and cheaper options it is not much of a deal.
Seriously???? N3050 processor??? I would buy an abacus instead!

Pointless trying to argue with someone that already has it in their head that a second hand 4-5 year old battered up business laptop would be more suitable for the target market, or for that matter one that gets their facts wrong. The run time is not greater, the battery will be heavier as will the laptop in question, especially considering its age. About the only fact you have right is that it is far more powerful...but once again...engage brain perhaps and understand EXACTLY WHAT THIS LAPTOP IS FOR.

For anyone that is interested instead of spending £160 on a business laptop then my advice is to be cautious on the condition and check the battery, you can end up spending a lot more getting it up to spec, involving taking the unit apart as there are many unscrupulous so called refurbishers out there, usually the ones that are not Microsoft Authorised Resellers (MAR's) and don't provide new refurbished Certificate of Authenticity (COA) Windows licences. Trusted sellers like ITZOO and Gigarefurb are two recommended ones.

I got better things to do this evening like watch Glastonbury and The Crystal Maze, and leave you with the stats from the U772.

I think you have an distorted view on exactly what 'trolling' is.

In Internet slang, a troll (/troʊl, trɒl/) is a person who starts quarrels or upsets people on the Internet to distract and sow discord by posting inflammatory and digressive,[1]extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses[2] and normalizing tangential discussion,[3] whether for the troll's amusement or a specific gain.

Firstly....I gave advice, one that an intelligent amount of people heeded...that does not start quarrels or is designed to be inflammatory.

Secondly, being 'pulled up' on such advice about cheap chairs ...hey damned if you do damned if you don't.

Being called a 'troll' a 'sad man' and being sworn at and heckled in provocation is trolling.

Anyway, enjoy your chair, don't know why you want to make idle chit chat with me, hardly going to be buddies 'mate' with someone that attempts heckling and clearly has nowt else better to do with their time, much better my advice falls on your deaf ears/eyes.

Theres many types of internet troll

lifewire.com/typ…894

You're most definitely a Type 2, with more than a hint of Type 5.

2. The Persistent Debate Troll
This type of troll loves a good argument. They can take a great, thoroughly researched and fact-based piece of content, and come at it from all opposing discussion angles to challenge its message. They believe they're right, and everyone else is wrong. You'll often also find them leaving long threads or arguments with other commenters in community comment sections, and they're always determined to have the last word – continuing to comment until that other user gives up.

5. The Show-Off, Know-it-All Or Blabbermouth Troll
A close relative to the persistent debate troll, the show-off or blabbermouth troll is a person who doesn't necessarily like to participate in arguments but does love to share his opinion in extreme detail, even spreading rumors and secrets in some cases. Think of that one family member or friend you know who just loves to hear his own voice. That's the Internet equivalent of the show-off or know-it-all or blabbermouth troll. They love to have long discussions and write lots of paragraphs about whatever they know, whether anyone reads it or not.

Wow...attempting to psycho analyse me......let me do the same in return, fascinating stuff...I would say you are a type 01 and type 04.

I would say that it was more referring to personality types, after all the opening paragraph on Lifewire states the following :

An Internet troll is a member of an online social community who deliberately tries to disrupt, attack, offend or generally cause trouble within the community by posting certain comments, photos, videos, GIFs or some other form of online content.

Oh dear...shall we try and engage your brain....

I offered advice after doing some research, now whether you choose to like that advice or not is entirely up to you, a number of people found that advice useful and liked the comment.

You in your infinite wisdom along with your sidekick chose to heckle me about this advice, asking for evidence....so I did.

As I have said before damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Like any reviews, you have to weigh up both the good and bad, the bad reviews for any item tend to come from those that have bought and used an item for a while...it is natural for any of us to change our opinion on something over time, so many a positive review on Argos is after someone has just bought something, including the dense individuals that don't know their pleather from their leather and their metal sprayed plastic from metal. The bad reviews clearly are from the ones that have had the chair break or become uncomfortable in no time at all.

Now naturally with a chair built like a cheap sofa but with the disadvantage of balancing on a dodgy fulcrum point there is a recipe for disaster. It is not rocket science that such a cheap, badly ergonomic chair is not going to last or offer long lasting comfort.

Now the real reason you keep heckling me is you know it was a crap decision. Not my problem, deal with it or take it back to Argos and get something better, you know...something that offers some structure of support....something with a metal framed base, something that replacement parts can be obtained easily and something that is serviceable.
