All Laptop Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
Nobody buys a 300 quid laptop to do anything intensive
Maybe use chrome as your browser?
Agreed, it needs an SSD and it'll probably be fairly decent... seems unbelievable any laptop still being sold without an SSD.
My work HP laptop is similar to this and cost £500. It has always been really slow so I swapped my hard drive for one of the £25 SSD's from mymemory and it is now super quick. Windows is usuable within 25 seconds and programs open almost instantly.
You’d really pick an Acer over a HP??
I saw that too, good value, no need to worry about storage. The one on Amazon has no SSD drive. Plus an extra 10% Quidco cashback.
Ordered this at weekend direct from Acer with 10% discount (though 128SSD/1TB). See it's been reduced to same price on Amazon today. It's not perfect, but as near as I've been able to get after months of checking on here for a decent 15.6" deal - certainly better than this machine I would say.
Here's another option, I think is a better buy. 8th Gen i5 with an IPS £540. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-Aspire-A515-51-50Y5-15-6-Inch-Notebook/dp/B078KG7B62/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1524656645&sr=1-1&keywords=Acer+aspire+5
Cheers, will edit the title.
Toshiba U3 is £14.99 at Base
Code VC5 takes it down to £15.16
Not sure how I feel about this. Seems like a Jack of all trades to me.
These Vivobooks look nice and all but their bouncy keyboards are just the worst.
Nice. I have the mi notebook pro but would have considered this at this price.
I mean sure you could play minesweeper and at a push solitaire on low settings but damn (lol)
This is just a knock off computer is rubbish, I've worked for currys. Anything AMD and its under 600 700 mark is a no go
In newer laptops the CPU's are solder on to the mobo. Even if you could upgrade the CPU, different gen CPU's have different sockets. You can't just put any old AMD CPU in, I would love to see you try.
Upgrade to A10 . Lots of old Amd CPU on eBay if you know how to open laptop and change CPU.
Lol old amd cpu, please buy to clear Room for something useful.
I bought this a week ago, its the slowest ever I have dealt with. All these years I never recommended an AMD process to anyone and I thought lets give it a try and not a good experience. even for a basic use.
That looked like a beauty.
All the lenovo i3 I found are expired, it was mainly duplicates of the same deal at currys. There's ones at amazon for £340 which is a 15.6. Would the acer spin 5 which has been posted on here for £330 be better?
Plenty of Lenovo i3 deals been posted regularly at the £320 mark with far better specs than the above. As for the 'SSD' argument. It's always churned out in these threads, 'stick an SSD in it....' But when you click on the SSD deals, you get the same people bickering about how slow the SSDs are!! 'Experts'! (poo)
Poor CPU and poor resolution
Oh forgot to add that bit of vital info. It was Sainsbury's at Fosse Park in Leicester.
Thanks for sharing this instore offer @Mtp1 , can you please add which Sainsbury's store you spotted them in to your opening post (y)
Yup... even at £699 this is not really a bargain. The latest version of the Dell 7577 with i5 processor and the laptop friendly 6GB 1060 Max-Q card is a much better long term prospect. Problem is it's still too pricey...
Here you go. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/asus-fx503vm-128gb-ssd1tb-hdgtx1060-3gb8gb-ram-749-aocom-709-with-voucher-code-40laptop-2918247?page=4#comment-33645072
Students get everything discounted. Pay full price !!!!!
Got a link to that deal please?
Amazon always has it at this prime... with rocket league
Having a Dram chip means that it will be faster especially for writing and wont bottleneck when tranferring large amounts of data. Cards without a Dram chip will slow massively when trasferring large amounts of data and users may experience micro stuttering when dealing with demanding applications. The cheaper cards have less storage memory as without a Dram chip they use reserved space as a cache, which is much slower.
A400s are DRAM-less AFAIK, and only have a 3 year warranty MX500 seems just such great value compared to all these cheaper models. £10 more gets you DRAM, a 5 year warranty and 20GB more space
So how is this compared to Crucial MX500 or Samsung Evo 860 (with Far Cry 5)? This one is slightly cheaper but it is 20GB less storage.
£10 too much for a basic 480 gb ssd. For £10 more you can buy the better crucial MX500 and Samsung Evo 850.
Not too shabby
Well, there are some really nice, small desktop cases which you can fit a very powerful rig into :)
Yes, I understand there are many advantages having a desktop of some description rather than a laptop but for me there are some space issues and I quite like the portability. That said, if I could find something small and powerful, with the number of ports these laptops have I could opt for that as I already have two other laptops. However, they are both a bit old and in no way capable of gaming but they are well adequate for all my general needs. Some kind of midi is an option but it would have to be small and whilst I have largely kept abreast with laptops, I haven't had a desktop for over a decade and have no idea what's available, what is good and where to get it - although Amazon service is indeed good, as you say.
Well, my only advice to you is, if you buy, buy direct from Amazon due to their return policy & warranty. Secondly, do you NEED a laptop? As in, would a pc not suit your needs? You get a lot more for your money if it's for probability I understand just curious
I've been looking at these two and am puzzling over the best option. I'm looking at a 17" preferably, so an ASUS GL7xx model is the current prime option - it's exactly the same spec as that Cyberpower. The quandary is whether the Cyberpower is a better option in terms of cooling and possibly longevity. The ASUS also has a terrific screen and I just don't know about the Cyberpower. I know it's IPS but I can't find out anything really about how that translates into real world experience.
I use it for everything, but gaming is the main reason for wanting these particular specs
manowarbrunonot Debtors' prison for specifically downloading a copy of windows costing about £20, but the act of being in debt by a further £20
really? prision for downloading a copy of windows? that sounds quite over the top
1050ti for £1200? You can get a 1070 for that kind of money.
Ref the lack of an O.S. Are people here that impoverished that a legitimate download copy of windows 10 costing near £20 will send them to a debtors' prison
Absolutely freezing cold. Bitter. Ice. Baltic
Finally dispatched! :D Thanks OP
Couldn't add to basket.. Expired?
Bagged one. Gone now
Good price. Useful for AV unit cooling too. Thanks.
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.
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.
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
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
Most new laptop s have them . Usb c let's you connect to external hubs at much faster speed . Displayport / HDMI 2.0 let you use 4k monitor or connect to TV in 4k
They are definitely comparable though, the 1060 3gb is maybe only 5-10% better than the 1050ti, but it has a way better CPU. I don't even think the one I posted is that good of a deal, that's why it is still on the site. But its £100 cheaper than the one you ordered.
Sadly that link is a 1050ti. Think there is a fair difference between that and a 1060, even the 3gb version. Good processor though. Also 2x4gb ram, would be better with 1x8 for upgrading in the future.

Still not the best deal you could get if you are quick.
£800 for a scratch and dent inspiron with these specs is way too much mate. Pretty sure you can get it for that price on their main site brand new. I just bought a certified refurb inspiron 7577 with a i7 7700, 16gb ram, GTX 1060 6gb, 128gb ssd + 1tb HDD for £820 yesterday. There is one on the the outlet store right now that's just as good as your specs for less ~£650.
Not a bad price or deal - you don't have a massive choice under £300 but that is a very anaemic CPU. Personally, I wouldn't buy anything less than AMD Ryzen-class if I was buying an AMD machine now.
AMD laptops :p
Regardless, it's night and day in terms of screen quality. Text looks really sharp. I'd never go with a low quality screen again.
This one doesn't have a dedicated gpu so don't expect to play anything on it. (league of legends wont run well 30fps~
Isn't that what Gucci etc do!
Do you not think it's a little perverse that someone is making tons of money out of people's gullibility? Check my last post out as well.
Did you also know that more jars of manuka honey are being sold in the UK than actually produced? This could mean UK consumers hoping to take advantage of its apparent healing qualities could be buying bogus jars. Yes, and is manuka honey really worth the money?
Da hell are you smoking? Lol
That's not true. The health food industry hypnotises the bees, all individually, so they can select only the pollen that has been touched by the fairies. On return to base, all the collected pollen is washed over a unicorn's horn. The really expensive stuff is left on the unicorns horn for a bit longer, until it is removed by a specially trained pixie. This has been proven by real science to be the only way that the H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide - an oxidizer, or free radical if you wish, as in the thing antioxidants target) can form a magical cloud of healing energy in your aura, fact.
do share it please, i posted the deal but was stupid and didn't order as i thought i don't realy need them now i know i made a mistake. (yes i know the screenshot shows something in my basket)
Well received my dispatch email sent by Royal mail will be interesting to see the manufacture date on the box to see how long they have been sitting on the shelf.
Limousine Platinum Service?
Cheers for that.
i wonder what's going on. i don't get why they would do that when there's stock.
Arrrrgh, how many Windows updates.... Binned McAfee straight away.
I paid the £3.99 as unwanted item, however they credited me £5 (which I didn’t ask for) when I did a live chat to find a location for the pass the parcel. £730 for this spec of laptop is good and beats the AO deal of £709 for a lower spec fx502vm which I returned as it was advertised as having a ips screen not the woeful TN screen it had.
FWIW I did the "product performance not adequate" or something option for the return, which is true since the headset isn't the best (though its retailing new for £380 everywhere atm so still a bargain if you did want it). Return was free for that option.
Alright, I'll try and do the same thing. Thanks!
Pass My Parcel, same drop off service as Collect+ where you can drop it off at a local shpo. For me the same shops that were doing Collect+ are doing Pass My Parcel, they might be a re-branded Collect+ for all I know.
Keep in mind the processor in this is equivalent to the snapdragon 625, so this is a mid to low end phone. £319 for a mid to low end phone is not a good deal imo.
How far apple are behind? To me Apple are doing this the smart way. They know they can get away with it. The battery scandal that they even admitted to on their older phones. Yet the appletons still defend apple.
Everything is like marmite. If apple released an iMac or TV with the notch, idiots will buy into it. It serves no function what soever and in fact hinders user experience by reducing what information can be shown at the top. Plus the video Resolution. It goes to show how far behind apple are in the tech world that they could not figure this out, meanwhile in China Xiaomi produced a near bezeless screen in 2016 on the Mi Mix. Using various new and innovative technology to avoid a notch. Next apple will sell the iNotch and make the notch the LCD and people will say its great. Complete zombie nation
DON'T buy this phone, it's really poor value at the moment.
