Acer Aspire 3 15.6 Inch AMD A6 9220E 1.6GHz 4GB 1TB HDD AMD R4 £130.49 - this one I believe has incorrect specs, according to everywhere else it has hd not FHD screen as listed but 8gb RAM

Be careful if buying with upgrading in mind, I've seen laptops with soldered RAM over the past few years.

Check the model before buying.
That asus vivobook x705 is tempting

The best deal is probably the Lenovo ideapad 330s with i7 Optane, and is selling fast.
Sorry but I just don't trust refurbs . They must have been returned for a reason (in most cases ) ? My experience of returning new laptops is that they reprogram it , self test it and send it back to you - fault still apparent . Only after that do they refund you - and I suspect sell it on as a refurb . Maybe I and a few friends have had unfortunate experiences but I would personally never consider a refurb . Probably Ok if you are really computer savvy - but not for me .

I would rather they say what the problem was and what has been changed to fix the reported fault . But that is never the case .
Nearly missed the code needed to get the linked prices.
Thanks OP
Agree. Just ordered. Fingers crossed it's in good condition!

Depends if you need a 17 inch or 15 and if u need i7 or i3.
I don't even need a laptop lol

Yes you can pay the amount anytime. I've paid off things off in 2months before. You can even pay amounts week by week

Agree. Just brought the last one
I purchased this one for my 15 years old son and I hope it will be good enough for his school work..think it is not bad for £243 for a new laptop

It doesn’t. FHD is full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) and IPS is the wide-angle and better colours typically. They can be mutually exclusive so you can get FHD TN displays and you can get HD IPS (rarer). I’d choose FHD first as you can get more information on the display but obviously a FHD IPS display is the best of all these you’ve mentioned - you also have higher resolutions and other screen types (PLS, VA, etc).

Should have bought the better built 330s in my opinion for £40 more.
Which has the latest i3 8th Gen processor and Optane, yours is 6th generation and without Optane or a SSD. It's going to be slow.
Also, The display is Full-HD IPS screen instead of a HD TN.

Is this worth the extra £70 compared to the Ryzen?
I like how the side photos of the X705 are just flipped so it has 2 power inputs, 2 HDMI’s etc.

Thank you..I was trying to get the best spec. laptop at the lowest possible price as it is only for school work and Iam sure it will be battered and may be completely destroyed in a couple of years.

I received my Lenovo 330s yesterday and just setting it up today.
Good build, very good screen, speakers are decent.
I cant seem to see any indication of the 16gb Optane?
Anyone have and idea where I can verify that my machine has this?

The description for eBay item clearly stated Optane. Did you all get a generic brown box?
