Agree, your paying a lot for the privilege if having the latest intel processors. What you planning to use it for?

Erm...

Just internet really. But I'm so fed up with slow/crashing/ blah blah I thought this one would be good. Paid 400 for mine 4 years ago,and it's been a pain for 3 years...

You'll pay quite a premium for a laptop.
If you can accept a desktop and have your existing laptop to trade-in, I would buy
1. An HP 280 G1 - £279
2. Trade in your laptop to save £100
3. Add a 256GB SSD and clone Windows to it - budget £70
4. Get a 21" Full HD monitor - budget £85
Your total spend less than £350.
If the 500GB is not enough, you can easily add a few TB for £60-£90 and keep the 500GB as a backup drive.
The HP's i3 4160 passmarks at 5043, compared to this laptop's i5 5200u at 3526.
And if you're doing anything sustained the desktop i3 won't thermal throttle either.
The SSD will keep performance snappy as there's no rotational latency.
With a little tweaking you could probably drive the cost down another £20.
HTH ...

This is a lot of money just to browse the internet. I would instead invest in a cheaper laptop using a last generation I3, full hd screen and an ssd. Would be much better than this

Have a look on Dell outlet Elvis. http://outlet.euro.dell.com/Online/InventorySearch.aspx?brandId=7&c=uk&cs=ukdfh1&l=en&s=dfh

You can filter on the left. An i3 or i5 will be fine for what you need. There are 2 categories - certified refurbished, which are mainly customer returns, changed mind, buyer's remorse etc. I've had 3 of them and all have been brand new. Scratch and Dent are what they suggest. They may have a scratch or dent X) but won't have been used and are fully warranted, the same as refurbs.

If you go on live chat you can often beg an extra 5% off code from them.

The inventory changes every day at 14:00 I believe.

Like I said, I've had 3 from there and have never had any issues.
