Looking for one of these. Budget £500 not fussed about spec.

Found a 17 inch one in Argos for £399

Any help appreciated

Integrated disc drive is a must

If you're not fussed about spec get a second hand one.
Lenovo V145 can be had for £400 and certain versions have an optical drive.

It is tricky, there are probably less than a handful of options which are at a reasonable price, but they do exist.

Can’t use an external dvd drive? Would open up the amount of laptops to pick from

The reason why that laptop has win7 on it because you can't/won't be able to install win10 on it.

OP specified optical drive and nothing else. He also said "not fussed about the spec".

We don't know what it's been used for. If specific enough spec may not matter.

OP your budget is mad generous for finding a laptop with just an optical drive. I suggest ebay or scctrade.

"not fussed about the spec" I still wouldn't have recommended a laptop with a Pentium T2310 click. Which you can't upgrade to win10. The fan on that laptop will be louder than your vacuum cleaner.
