I did not like the feel of the pavilion when looking for a new laptop, the case sinks in when pressing keys
Amazing deal, shame it's sold out, not surprised though. I posted a acer swift 3 with similar spec but Ryzen 7. Was £100 more and doesn't have a dedicated graphic card.
My nephew needs a laptop for his upcoming GCSE’s then 6th form/college. Main issue seems to be battery life on these laptops. Also he likes to play games and I’m trying to edge him away from games on the laptop as it’s pushing the price up for a start and his Grandad doesn’t want games on his school pc! He plays Fortnite on the Xbox One and uses a Keyboard and mouse. Suggestions?
Please post if you spot any refurbs for £440
Get a gaming laptop, even if you are not a gamer. They have better cooling usually than the thinner laptops with 'U' processors, and the cpu's/gpu's are less likely to throttle back - lowering performance to keep within the 15w TDP. Keep an eye out for 7300HQ or 8300H CPU from Intel (i5 7th/8th gen) for around your £600 mark. Recently there was some grade a+ refurbished Acer Nitro 5's on here with the 7300HQ and GTX 1050 for a mere £440.
