Just ftr the 256SSD has been reduced to same price 539.99 on amazon, the 1TB option is £10 more expensive for some reason. The ssd/HD split is only available on acer website as far as i can see. Now amazon has dropped price tcan have choice of which one suits personally. As said specs of Acer definitely beat this HP; eagerly waiting for delivery today, so i'll see what reality is!
A friend purchased this yesterday band it arrived today, and it's pretty snappy, 1080 screen, decent speakers, webcam is a bit of a let down though
There's deal on Saveonlaptop, not Gen 8 though. I think it's good value. https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/NX.GS3EK.001-Acer-Aspire-5-A515-51G-574F_2156515.html
I don't care about which brand, just value for money and decent reviews for the product.
Should have dedicated graphics innit
