Personally I would not recommend this band to anyone, purchased a different model quite some time ago and based on the specs it should have performed well, but for some reason even after fresh reinstall its performance was poor.
3ak any laptop has to use it's battery responcibly or it is no longer a laptop. Little better than a desktop with battery back up, i.e. ups.
HQ processor is needed for best gaming experience, the U's are battery saving - it's an ok deal but not a HOT UK DEAL. Cold.
Looking for something in the same price range, but looking for more than a dual core cpu.

Looking around for laptops. This seems alright for the price. There are many more on the site as well. Weighs 1.8KG so a lot lighter than other gaming laptops. MSI GF63 8RC-255UK… Read more
If you look on here every day, sooner or later you will find a good deal. Maybe today, maybe two weeks time.
W Why in a few weeks? I'm looking to buy a gaming laptop next month. So many to choose from.
I'm after a multifunction machine really. Something for day use and average use then something for games. But ones I've seen weigh a ton. Want something light weight so easy to move around. This is the lightest I've seen for a cheaper price than others
I think it really depends on what you are looking for in a laptop. Most gamers would rather take a 1060/i5 over a 1050/i7. If your doing photo/video editing however, the later might be more suitable especially if the screen is a high quality IPS.
Yeah I know what you mean. I've been looking myself and seen this. Why I posted. Dont normally seem I7's and this laptop is really light weight compared to others that I've seen. Any recommendations would be great ^^

For those who don't know, the 32GB model (not enough storage - you'll need to add an M.2 SSD to expand it, IMHO) is on Amazon for 149.99. I picked up one for my sister for Xmas, added a 256GB M.2 SSD, moved Windows onto that bigger storage, added a 128GB microSD card (400GB storage in all - sweet) and then installed Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon on the 32GB eMMC internal storage. Still paid well less than 249.97 for a better setup. Windows 10 just about runs OK on this machine if you stick to basic tasks - Windows Updates and Windows Defender really chew up the CPU on this machine though - took hours to get the 1803 Windows 10 update installed too! Linux Mint, on the other hand, installs and runs sweetly on this - Gemini probably should have shipped it with a Linux distro because of its low-end nature (no-one will be running Photoshop, CAD or games on this, which leaves Linux as the ideal platform for this sort of low-end laptop). BTW, it can boot from USB unlike what the incorrect Amazon reviewers say - you just have to know what BIOS options to change :-) Insert a live USB stick, repeatedly press Delete to enter BIOS on power
up, go to Boot -> Fast Boot and enable that option. Now change the
newly-appeared "USB Support" option from "Partial Initial" to "Full
Initial" and change the Boot Options just above to put your USB stick
ahead of the Windows Boot Manager. Save & Exit from the BIOS, reboot
and - bam - you should be booting from your live USB stick.
I know benchmarks are not everything, but short of testing every CPU I do rely on them. For me tipping point between tablet or less & basic pc or better is about 1400.
Intel Celery (annoyed)
I really don't understand the manufacturers. While they have some decent specs, but then couple it with a pile of crap. Great it's got. 256 gigabyte SSD, but with that processor and like the previous comment said, at least you have a large enough memory bank to store your calculations
Here you go, if you can wait, hopefully they will bring the price down again. Box and Saveonlaptops are same company. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lenovo-ideapad-520s-i5-128ssd-8gb-ram-39997-boxcouk-2976793
Can you link that deal please? Thanks
Got this today. I paid 399 for it. It's a great laptop. I would have still bought it at this price.
First deal so thanks for being gentle people ;( (embarrassed) ;)
indeed it was, cold for me

Keep an eye on the Dell Outlet daily, I got this laptop yesterday but with a 256gb SSD and the 4gb 530 for £387inc pp etc I just checked each day and loads came in on Tuesday I think, not checked today
Personally I'm not that keen on ex display and I don't urgently need a laptop but I am looking for one with Intel Core i5 8th Gen, 1920x1080, 8GB RAM and I haven't seen anything close to this price.
