    Can I get everything I want within my budget? [Laptop]

    I've been looking for a laptop for awhile but I'm a picky sod and I'm now wondering if I'm just expecting too much for my budget? Basically I want an i3, 8GB RAM, Windows 10, Full HD laptop for £300 or less (HDD not important as I have a spare SSD). I don't mind waiting for deals obviously, but am I ever likely to get what I want within my budget? Maybe during the January sales I was thinking.

    No, but if you try, you might just get what you need.

    Yes I think you should be able to get a Dell laptop with those specs within your price, especially in the Dell outlet but those might have a small scratch

    There was an acer ES 15 on very that fits the bill very well.

    Picked it up for 260 on black Friday, check Very

    Saw that, 6GB would be fine but it's only 720p if memory serves and I really don't want less than full HD if possible.

    Yeah you're right, but it's back up to £350 now, that would have been perfect.

    Better to buy individual parts and build one on your own.

    Build a laptop!? Good luck with that.:)

    Pick up a Lenovo Thinkpad that could be a good bet if you keep your eyes open for a full HD one

    "The promotion code KPAJM is invalid". Not sure why it's not working for me.

    Its because it's the first of January and It only lasted till the end of the month (December), but there will be a new one tomorrow on the banner at the top of the Very website

    How did you get 20% off? KPAJM only gives me 10% off. Also the offer page says it's 10% for all electricals
