IPS and LED are not mutually exclusive. Most screens nowadays are LCD and use some sort of LED backlight, and the most common types are TN, VA, IPS. TNs are fast and responsive but have bad viewing angles and colour reproduction. VAs are a good middle ground. They have deep blacks and better colour reproduction but aren't as fast. IPS has great viewing angles, great colour reproduction, good blacks (but usually not as good as VA) but are usually a bit slower. Personally, I think unless you're going to do a lot of gaming, IPS is the way to go as there's usually more colour critical tasks then anything else. And when I say slower, the difference is only a few milliseconds so won't make a difference in any everyday task. OLEDs/MiniLEDs/MicroLEDs are a while other set of technologies but they are also LEDs that shine 'organically' so they are self emitting rather than using a backlight. Best blacks, great colour etc. Not sure about speed though. One of the main problems with OLED is screen "burn-in" where if the same image (i.e. TV channel logo) is permanently in the same position, it can scar into the TV panel permanently but it has gotten a lot better over the years. I don't think MiniLED / MicroLED suffers from this but I'm not 100% sure.

Is an IPS screen alot better than an LED screen then?

danishjee

and its quite a big difference tbh :)

I think the IPS screen is the key difference, too expensive for me though, I pushed my budget for the Curry’s one...

Same spec for £585 from Currys with ASUS10 code. Not quite sure if it's IPS display though. https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/asus-vivobook-m431ia-14-laptop-amd-ryzen-7-512-gb-ssd-silver-10208144-pdt.html

Same laptop was posted via Amazon a few days ago but now out of stock. 10% cheaper here with the code. Great for students and those on a budget.

Currys are all over the place, now I get an email confirming the laptop will be delivered tomorrow!

Not looking good. Tbh I could wait. Not in a massive rush.

youey18

Oh dear 🙈 this doesn't bode well

m27try

Just called Currys to track my order (which was placed roughly 15 minutes after the OP) and was told that the laptop is OOS and won't be in stock for atleast 21 days. They offered me to choose another laptop upto 10% above the value...

I don't know that specific title but the chipset is surprisingly competent at running games. My laptop has a 1080p screen but you can select in the Radeon settings for the GPU itself to upscale 720p rendered graphics to 1080p which is better than the standard upscaling and of course you can scale back detail a bit if necessary. These AMD integrated GPU's offer great compatibility, they don't have the issues of intel integrated GPU's which often don't work with some games as some of the GPU's features are software emulated although this has improved in later intel chipsets I believe. The 3500U actually has a more powerful GPU than the model that replaced it, 4500U however because the 4500U has better memory bandwidth and more CPU power it is still stronger for games but in theory a few games that rely more on the GPU could achieve higher frame rates on 3500U but I'll admit this would only be a handful of games. In regards emulation the 3500U has been shown to emulate zelda breath of the wild on wii u at pretty much full speed which is quite surprising. It isn't as good as a gaming laptop with a dedicated GPU but it's a surprisingly versatile laptop that offers both long battery life and reasonable gaming performance. The GPU performance of the laptop is about the same level as the original Xbox One console but massively beats it in CPU performance and yet is portable. I think thats quite impressive. It's about 1.3 terraflops of GPU power if my memory serves me right.

Good specs for a sub-£300 laptop and looks good too with thin bezels and lightweight

Mister_Cool

So 4gb/256gb with i3, a good deal would be under £300? And something with 8gb a good deal is £350? Genuine question so I can keep an eye out

Aldi one is better but still trash. Non removable battery. Last about a week

kingstongold

I wondered a lot of the same things mate. It says fhd screen but what actual pixel total is there. Likewise was wondering about the ram and if it could be upgraded to 8 or 16. SSD sounds to be a 2.5sata rather than the emmc ones going around mainly due to the size . Also then if it's a M2 that should also be upgradable which is a bonus

I think for the original price, £470, it's still a good buy, for who I bought it for***. You simply will not get a 1TB in a laptop at that price. It does get hot but that's more the fact it has a Ryzen 7 inside over the normal Ryzen 5's that are in laptops of this price. It is plasticy I will agree, but for under £500 you'll struggle to get a premium feeling laptop. As for the trackpad, if you're doing anything productive you should be using a wireless mouse! *** I bought this for a couple who needed a decent every day laptop within their budget of £500 and this is the best thing I found all black friday. I, personally, would go for something much more premium feel as I use my laptop a huge amount. But, my budget would start at £1,000.

Kasia29

much apprectated

Kasia29

so in your opinion is this laptop worth the money you originally paid for? taking into account that it doesn't have back lit keyboard, TN not IPS screen, no trackpad 2.0, plastic feel and some people were saying about getting hot

gradyoactive

Looks like they've updated it. First picture is still wrong though. Before it didn't have the "black" in the title.

gradyoactive

Just tell them how unhappy you are with it and it's not the model you ordered. They'll say "no problem, we'll sort out a refund" and then jst say that you will accept a discount instead and keep it. I think they're just too busy to even argue it, took me 25 minutes to get into the chat because of the que.

We're not talking about 64 vs 16, it's 8 vs 12. Of course 64gb is excessive unless your workflow includes basically every program in the Adobe suite. Saying that 12gb is only gonna drain your battery rather than increase responsiveness is the kinda claim that needs to be evidenced because that's against common wisdom, rather than my pretty sensible assertion that 50% extra ram from 8 to 12 will provide a tangible increase in performance. Also I'm pretty sure what you describe about RAM usage is true for some Unix based operating systems (Android, iOS, Mac OS, Linux) and not for Windows. I'm not an engineer but the memory management of different systems is not directly comparable and uses different technologies. If you do know more on the subject I'd love to learn more!!

bacchic

Edge is my preferred PDF viewer - if it wasn't Edge then it'd be Acrobat which is hardly prudent on resources. The point that Chrome is a resource hog is an important one because (as I'm suggesting) you incorporate more than a web browser into your general use then 12gb might be a worthwhile upgrade over 8gb. Again, I'm countering the initial comment that the extra 4gb memory will only serve to drain battery.

Wooj

8gb is plenty for casual use. Why do you open two browsers? Chrome is a resource hog, if you're struggling could you just use Edge instead?

Will there be any deals where we can trade in our old laptop?
