Not bad, but you can get an identical spec'd HP laptop new for the same price here. I recommended it here on another thread. Does the job for most tasks and light gaming.

Right think I finally found one. €409. SSD memory, 256gb of it which is loads for what I do. No disk drive but I can buy one of them. 15.6" screen but not too heavy. In Argos so I can collect it tonight or whenever and not wait for delivery. Thoughts?

It's a dog slow processor and only 4GB RAM. That 4GB RAM is soldered on so if you've want to upgrade you'd probably only add another 4GB in. 37W/h battery too sounds poor for battery life.

If you're just doing the basics its fine but I personally would not recommend it.

What would the above be like?

Or anyone recommend something sub €400 for herself, main use will be MS Office and Internet usage.

Dont need anything fancy,

4gb probably loads?
128gb storage should be plenty
Good battery life.
14 or 16 screen size
Doesn't need a disk drive

Anyone know where I might find a HP Spectre x360 with 10th Gen CPU for sale in Ireland? Have checked all the usual sites but can only find last year's model with 8th Gen and thicker bezels.

Basically my old laptop has packed it in and I'm looking for a good quality replacement. Loking for a good all round device, I work in software so need something beefy and with good usability and build quality but also looking for something comfortable to use for lazing on the couch or in bed and light and portable. The Spectre seems to tick every one of those boxes..
