For this price the i3 10100F would bet the better option if you can get your hands on it. Still an ok processer for a budget build but try to find the 10100F if you can. And remember, no onboard graphis with an F processor.
Very good cpu I use it for my gaming pc, I play in 1440p and can handle any game with a gtx 1080 ti
Can anybody find a full ATX motherboard to suit this chip similar to the recent hukd currys £65 msi radeon board ?
AMD is stupidly priced atm. Everything is out of stock and because AMD is the go to nowadays due to the influence youtube gives it means that people over charge for AMD processors. This CPU is great to go for and i massively recommend it, just go for the i5 if you have a spare 50 quid in your budget. Have a good one mate
Thanks Joel, will check out the b460 mortar, I have an rx580 8gb sapphire for the GPU, till the market gets better I can put in a build, but the 6 cores in the i5 would be useful as i compile quite a bit of audio and video, unfortunately everything with AMD on it at the moment seems to be silly money even for used.
I have. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/vp7vvf this is my build, it cost me just over 600 quid. I got my GTX 1060 for 140 quid used and then everything else was brand new. A great first build and the chip is very solid. If i had an extra 50 quid I would defo have goten an i5 10400f just for the extra cores and threads and 6 cores 12 threads seems to be the sweet spot for budget gaming and everyday use. Hope this helped. (The B460 Mortar is a marvolous board, definitely worth the extra bit of money as it has a great Bios and is good for upgrades due to its 4 dimm slots and that it has the same socket as the future intel 11th gen. Im going to try and get the i5 11400f when it is released aslong as it a reasonable price. Never thought I would say this but Intel is the way to go for budget builds atm, Hope you enjoy yours!

LENOVO IdeaPad Flex 5 13.3" 2 in 1 Full HD Chromebook, Intel i3-10110U, 64GB - £379 Delivered @ Currys ebay / Currys£379 Free P&P FreeeBay Deals
I posted this recently at £399, so at £379 it's even more of a bargain. Also available at Currys direct: currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/lenovo-ideapad-flex-5-13-3-2… Read more

You could look at this or the Lenovo I posted with 4300u. Or you could scrap the build quality and IPS screen and backlit KB and maybe get an i5 or Ryzen 5 in the price bracket. Or add £100 and get it all at once.
I'm in the market for a new laptop. My current Sony Vaio Core 2 Duo has done me at least 10 years, but memory is now getting full. Sooooooo slooooow! I'm looking for something that would run Autodesk Inventor (3D modelling) occasionally but no need for gaming. It's just for working on in the evenings, have workstation at work. I connect up to a 32" IPS monitor most of the time (would love a 3rd screen if possible). Would this do the job?
One thing that baffles me why do people prefer a matt screen then a gloss screen on a laptop. You don’t get matt screen on the TV you wouldn’t want it you don’t get matt pics, u always paid the extra for the gloss. So why dull Matt on the laptop screen, Someone said he has reflections in the Sun, Surely 99.9% of people are inside an office working on the laptops not sunbathing upside down while working on the laptop in the garden

I know this was posted before recently - but it's gone down another 20 quid to £529.99. Whilst previous comments suggested the Currys version with AMD Ryzen 5 3500U was the better… Read more
I remember that deal, I was actually interested in that but decided to pay £400 for an i5 Zenbook, I like it more. I'm not sure if that deal was cheap because of a student discount. Or it was a strange colour if it was the John Lewis deal. I do remember a good deal on Lenovo on the specs you suggested, but without the OS. However, I can't say this is bad just because I found once or twice a better deal a while ago. Pretty much every price here was cheaper a while ago. What's important is what is available now and for how much. This is not my favourite laptop deal by far, but it is still somewhere on top, I don't vote hot only for number 1.
There was the possibility of an i5-1035g1 with an Nvidia MX330 dGPU for £420 with the lenovo ideapad 5 a bit back so I would disagree with heat on this.
Just the way it is. Any laptop that did meet the spec doesn't exist anymore I bet. Lower demand for it for something lighter, thinner etc. So now they're all chasing impracticality and profitability.
It's non-removable according to crucial website as well
On Amazon and scan it says max 8gb supported.

Intel i3-9100F SRF7W, 3.60GHz £65 Dispatched from and sold by CPU-WORLD-UK LTD£65Amazon Deals
Here we have 4-core budget i3. I know AMD is mopping at the moment, but this fella gets good scores when it comes to gaming and desktop performance versus ryzen 5 2600: https://cp… Read more
gone up slightly to 88.17 but im pretty sure this is the af, doesn't clearly say af but it has the 3.6ghz boost clock. honestly at this price especially for budget users its a no brainer to spend a bit extra for a much much more futureproof cpu for longer term saving even just the normal 1600, still will have an upgrade path to a cheap used cpu aswell.
Link for that 1600af @ 85? I was using i5 4570 before this and it was coping well, this seems handling win 10 bit better and I can play the likes of civ5 and xcom without hiccups(in fairness my i5 was paired with 8gb ddr and old 7770gpu,so that's another story) For my usage pattern this was cheapest proposition that performs well. Yes I could spend 100 more and get ryzen 3 series.... Or spend 500 more and get something more capable,but horses for courses . 1600af is great deal for someone i3 is good for someone else...happy to have them competing for our money. Thanks
userbenchmark is the worst benchmarking site in existence, they changed their score system to disproportionately benefit intel and claimed it reflects real world speed more because apparently we still live in 2012 where nothings multi threaded... at this price theres really no reason not to just grab a 1600af for around 20 more and have a much better pc all around. (unless your not using a dedicated gpu in which case 3200g would be the better option)

Deal still going in Republic of Ireland folks. 389 euro and in stock
i have na also and its a i3
I ordered 4 and got all as "NA" models which are the i5. Got one spare if anyone is looking to buy, can sell one. PM me :)
Picked up the silver one yesterday, bought from their eBay store. i3 on the box i5 from the system information! Very pleased just for my mum to surf the web and use office everyone and then. Very happy with it
If we scrap the onboard GPU and assume you can chuck in a 1060, which is the better cpu for gaming? I don’t need faster the 60FPS nor do I have 4K Currently by I5 Sandy bridge is ticking along but realise it’s about 10-20% slower then modern day ones
I'm aware, but I'm coming from a gaming perspective. The iGPU in the Ryzen 3 is so weak you'd never bother using it for gaming.
Your Intel build does not have a graphics card of any type. This model of i3 is only useful if you have graphics card as well. Not useful for everyone and not as good as AMD in many cases, but better in others. Each to their own and if someone wants a i3-9100F - this is a good price. Not much more needs saying to this aging thread now.

Pay your money, take your choice.
Perfect for most casual users I'd have thought. Hot.
Looks like the 4GB RAM is soldered in - but reviews say there is one slot to add more. Another 4GB seems to be around £25 - but you have to take the whole back off, not something I'd particularly want to do on a brand new laptop! Apart from that it seems OK. RAM Upgrade
If you must go Intel then it’s not bad but the Ryzen 3/5 laptops in this similar price range tend to offer better value plus 8GB RAM and 256GB SSDs as well as better integrated graphics, AMD is more viable here in my opinion. This might be an 8th gen i3 but it’s still only dual-core.
That i3 is a beast.
You have forgot small screen, perhaps we can add its made of plastic to the negatives as well, dont forget no back lit keyboard as well.
I bought one of these from currys. It was 580 rrp on clearance at 350. (So probs just 350). Its brill to be honest. Its obvs a little cpu throttled which is understandable but runs everything ive thrown at it on ultra. I dont have any brand new AAA games but there are youtube videos if you type in the processor and gpu that show the benchmarks. I will be throwin an in ssd and probably a second stick (it ones with a single stick of 8gb rather than 2 4gb). Its actually pretty mint for the price
O ok thankyou im looking at upgrading my processor but don't really know what else i need to upgrade to be honest
I think it's a secondary displayport. You could for example use it (with another graphics card) for charts and graphs on a home 4 monitor daytrader setup. :)
That port circled
I'm assuming you are a 'PC Masterracer', I cant stand those guys and I'm PC gamer. This PC will run games at (slightly) higher settings than a PS4, is a PS4 not a games console? This PC game play games at a (slightly) setting than the industry standard so it must be useless right?
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.
Don't think people are reading the deal properly. This comes with a big bundle of extras: sleeve, mouse, 2 tb external hard drive, for free. Got to be hot. (y)

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F283237184520 I believe this is same
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.
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.
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.
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HP-14-BW021NA-14-Laptop-AMD-A6-8GB-1TB-HDD-With-BullGuard-Internet-Security-/292816705630 Would this be a comparable laptop or is the processor just not good enough?
You can twist it however you want, you can't have a product that's both hardly used and unused. Common sense really. But thanks for posting. Heat
