I have a Ryzen laptop with same specs I picked up for this price a few months back. This laptop (ignoring performance differences between Intel / AMD) is really quite well built. Was suprised to be totally honest, was expecting absolutely nothing when I got such performance for so little, was pleasently suprised.

Yeah thats what i thought if i refuse delivery. As for the return it says buyer must pay return postage, so best bet is to refuse delivery tell them to take it back i think

Thanks Hearts22. I was hoping for a basic laptop for the kids school work around the 300 mark. I've bought a budget one before and it is an absolute waste. I'm probably going to have to increase my budget then. The refurbishment concerns me with this one.

hearts22

That's not on par with an i3... that's why it's cheaper as well. AMD processors tend to be worse than Intel but they are generally cheaper. Personally I wouldn't get an AMD budget laptop and spend a little more. I would only go with AMD processors that are not budget ones.

hearts22

I already explained hardly used was meant as "certainly not used". Hardly has that meaning too according to the dictionary. It can mean "certainly not" as well. I wasn't using it as in "barely used" if that's how you understood it. There is no contradiction, especially if you read the edited comment now. Thanks for the heat.

Yeh agree you can get better specs if you look wider to laptops etc. Unfortunately (for me) my daughter specifically wanted a white all-in-one PC for her bedroom (rather than a laptop).

tim28

The 24" is currently on offer at PC World too but was too big for her. We didn't like the look of the ACER one in the flesh, but agree the spec looks good value.

tim28

The same machine with a SSD is usually £999, so agree that dropping to £489 would be smoking hot - but lets be honest that's never gonna happen on an all-in-one PC (they don't have the margins). But good news, the £999 SSD model is £200 OFF so down to £799: https://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=5EV11EA&opt=ABU&sel=DTP (for those who want SSD)

I'm struggling to give heat to this one. Pretty much every laptop at this price point has an i5 and an SSD. While 2TB is nice, I would not buy anything without an SSD these days. By no means a bad deal, but tepid at best from me.

This laptop is ok for navigate on the Internet watch movies, online or from hard drive, you can play games for example fifa 2017 or f1 2016, 2017 strategy games, if you want to play new games you will need a better laptop recommended with sdd, bigger graphic card and better processor.

this! second hand market is leagues ahead for the price you get out of a particular hardware. but the mindset is always brand new, especially a laptop since users are weary of things that go wrong but don't realise how easy it is to factory reset the hardware so its brand new. The funny thing is I got this laptop with the i5 6200u about 3 years ago for £390 from very , and the 6200u is better than this i3 and the price has only one down £25? lol what a joke

whittakerlap

since you want a 15inch, my recommendation is a Dell Precision 7510, this is a powerful machine and will make your son happy. The price is not £350 but you can get it for like £500. Get this and sell his old machine. A couple of these are on fleasbay for around 800 but an offer of 500 might do it.

whittakerlap

Ok, give me till tomorrow and I will post some feedback. I notice his old HP had an AMD processor, an update will be a machine with an Intel processor, possible 8GB ram, 64bit OS machine and def a Win 10

The Base Clock only impacts anything if the cooling is to poor for the frequency to rise above it under full CPU load. If that was true here it would mean the 8th generation in this would run slower than the 7th generation CPU at its base speed. The only 15W i3 chips are Kaby Lake Refresh chips and not Coffee Lake so there is limited scope for improvements in power efficiency if any. I've lost track of Intel's 14nm variants but I think Coffee Lake gets the latest process and not Kaby Lake Refresh but that could be wrong. It's not exactly transparent as both are classed as 8th generation with Intel offering a masterclass in obfuscation

plewis00

I genuinely believe that despite IPC practically standing still, the efficiency has increased for each generation. I am 99% sure the base clock speed definitely does affect the power consumption! I guess it comes down to whether you would buy a last-gen CPU or not. Personally, I would, but only with a really significant saving.

Agharta

Which is somewhat arbitrary at best as surely provided the cooling is good enough the base line of 2.2GHz has no real bearing on actual performance and therefore power consumption. This is separate to any process improvements which might improve efficiency and the larger cache could even reduce power efficiency! (4 v 3MB).

Memory and ssd are upgradeable. The review posted above was pretty decent considering the price but personally think I would want the i5 version with 8gb ram.

johnnystorm

I got one of these for my Father in Law last week and he's chuffed with it. I know you can wipe Win10 easily enough but there wasn't much guff preinstalled and the casing has a metal finish on the top and keyboard surround. There was an identical price version but without the backlit keyboard. We paid an extra fiver for 2 day delivery and placed the order at 4.30pm. It arrived via DPD at 9.45 am the next day.

majorwedgy84

True but you could only really describe usb c as very niche at this moment in time. Hdmi will handle 4k whilst ssd is still fine in usb 3. Is usb c worth a 100 premium which is ultimately what we are talking about since 6th gen and 7th gen cpu are largely identical

htslough

This is obviously older stock. Doubt you'll want to do anything with a faster hub or 4k TV with only 4GB ram. Windows 10 has become real bloatware and 8GB is what you really need nowadays to run it smoothly. This is good for general browsing and 1080p stuff. Heat for fullhd screen and backlit keyboard. Touchscreen and tent mode a bonus
