this is much better as it has FHD :-D
i7 also used to mean quad-core for laptops (as long as it wasn’t ULV). There’s no easy way to know what you’ll get any more without prior research. Honestly they’re all usually the same silicon with different speed bins (higher turbo and base clocks). It is mostly marketing anyway, i5, i3, even Pentium is good enough for productivity work

Maybe one or two degrees which would happen naturally for the laptop when sold in hotter countries. In other words well within its limitations.

Yes, the 2100
they were selling these @ £12 a couple of months ago.
ebay price is usually around £18-£22 so a good price.
I'm not sure I see the point of getting one of these. If you have an old system that can take these CPUs I would probably stump for a quad core for a tiny bit extra.

If building now I would look at what you can get on Ebay, often really good deals on 4th gen i5 systems.

Having experienced the other Asus offering which was a hot deal and turned out to be HD only I would avoid the product above. When I sat it next to a 6 year old HD only Samsung, the Asus Vivobook screen looked lacklustre and poor in comparison. I would avoid any of this range in HD only and look for FHD.

I got this laptop last black Friday for £275 with 256GB SSD (Laptops Direct), thought it would've dropped lower considering its even older tech now.

I would have been devastated if I canceled the ao.com one and then the other got cancelled because it was an error, though.I think it's best to go whatever you're comfortable with. I'm hoping to see a good deal on an SSD that I can put in this one, which might mean the total price is nearer £330-40, but with perhaps a 1TB HDD and a 240GB SSD by the time I'm finished, which will be a great deal.

It's for web surfing, school work (Word etc.) and she will probably want to do some basic editing of her phone videos for Youtube.

From what I've been reading an 8gb, i3 (not too old a gen') would be preferable. I see this also has SSD. She has an XBox for gaming so don't need to that on the laptop, although she may want to play Sims when she's old enough. Is this 'THE ONE'?

Is there much difference in i3 7th gen to i5 7th gen???


Well, yes there is. The i5's out perform the i3 but with the SSD you'll find that it handles day-to-day tasks such as office, streaming, multiple tabs and light photo editing pretty smoothly. Unless you want to use a laptop for gaming (in which case you'll need a dedicated graphics card) or video-editing, then this will do just fine.

I have the G4 version of this which is almost identical (it has a slightly …I have the G4 version of this which is almost identical (it has a slightly better CPU *i5*, but isn't FHD being the only real differences between the 2). It cost me £280 from eBuyer a year ago and once I'd swapped the original drive with a SSD and added another 4GB of RAM it's been a great "little" runner ever since. It's a bit on the heavy side compared to the Macs and Chromebooks I have and prefer, but out of all the Windows machines I've had over the years it's the best by far. Only downsides are:1) HP250 G4 is not 1080 FHD, it's a 768p screen in height and it's very noticeable. Tweaking the Intel graphics GUI for a while can make a world of difference though. This is 1080 FHD though so shouldn't need as much tinkering with for a good display.2) I don't know what HP's game is with these particular machines having 2 RAM slots and only filling one with 4GB, leaving the other empty then warning the user there are no serviceable parts inside and opening the machine may render the warranty void but it is absurd. Why not give it 8GB at least in the 1st place?? The damned things can't do anything bar open a browser with 4GB of RAM so you will need at least another 4GB of RAM just for running apps, uploading/downloading, streaming etc. Officially the G4 max RAM is 8GB (and it didn't void my warranty - I got that in writing when extending my cover for another 2 years) but I know it also works with 16GB [but voids all cover]. Since the G5 officially supports 16GB of RAM I'd suggest giving it exactly that for best results. You will need at least 8GB though in total. Even then the fan on mine comes on far too often. It's not like there's much inside that gets hot with the SSD fitted so can only guess the CPU/GPU would appreciate some extra help in the form of more RAM.3)Not a major downside per se but if the bottom is just one big covering rather than having handy compartments you can open to access to get at the drive, RAM, wireless card etc then enjoy the nerve wracking experience of getting that plastic bottom off by force. Every time I have had to open mine I have to wrench it so hard from the main body of the laptop that just before it gives it feels like it's about to snap into bits. I'd also turn off Windows updates for non-Microsoft firmware and software as M$oft always replace HP-specific drivers with their own generic ones which is a real PITA as they're often deficient to the ones HP supply, albeit a bit slower with the updates. Apart from those slight negatives you should enjoy it. If mine had a full HD screen I'm sure I'd use it a lot more than I've done so far. I don't game much but Kodi runs easily on mine and Steam powered games that aren't graphic-intensive run without a hitch too.

Nothing found. Now removed Kaspersky see how it goes.


Kaspersky is a hungry bit of software, so good idea to remove it. There is another option you can look at, type in MSconfig in start and it will take you to system configuration, then go to start up and check what programmes start up when your computer boots up, you will amazed how many unnecessary apps are running on you computer. just disable the ones you don't use very often, it will not cause any problems as long it is not system based and when you need them just click on it and use them, when you re-start the computer they will no longer be running in the background.

Wait for one of these:

Likely to be around £350 or thereabouts.

A1 Grade refurb above for £400.

Still cold though at this price given the low res screen
There is no excuse for such a low resolution.
I know we don't yet have time machines, but for reference, I bought the i5 FHD version of this device for £499 in January this year. So probably, not a great price. Hang on for something better if you can. The 128GB is a bit of a squeeze, but I fitted a 128GB SD Card for about £30 which was cheaper than getting the 256GB model. I only use the extra storage for music/photos etc. so read/write speed isn't an issue.

I went for this one amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1.

I've just picked it up from the Amazon collection point. It seems like a really nice product and the laptop fits perfectly. It's more of a sleeve than a bag though so you'd probably want to use it inside another bag for uni unless you're happy carrying it.
Picked up tonight - looks good and feels premium! and £22.50 cashback tracking?????
FYI I've been unable buy either i3 or i5 on a few occasions (just to test stock cos don't like the gold) but both show no stock & unavailable for home delivery. Likely due to being discontinued product.

is this the 2017 model


2016 model, 2017 model has a black bezel, an extra USB 3.0 port and somehow a worse (less bright) screen.

Bought this on Sunday, just wanted to share my experience dealing with Argos as a heads up.

Took it home on Sunday afternoon, first thing I noticed after removing from the box was that it has finger print marks on the shell and a very small scratch. Nothing major, hard to see, which was strange as security seal was intact.

I reserved another one, Went back in today and customer services immediately referred me to Acer, saying they do not deal with issues with Acer products, or any other electronics for that matter, but instead ask customers to contact the manufacturer to correctly identify the problem. In the end though, they were fine swapping mine out, as it was only an exchange.

So just wanted to say, Argos are saying if the item does develop a fault, I need to contact Acer.
Has anyone had a similar experience?

Only lenovo on offer at the moment. Or Dell with PC World. Nothing really below 350 if you want full HD. But that's if you are lucky. Ended up giving up on 2 in ones.
