    I'm thinking the i3 IdeaPad is the best for the price, anyone got any thoughts?

    the Lenovo has a 1366x768 TN display.

    Probably the same display as i have on my 2011 Lenovo... It's crap tbh.

    The Acer has a 1920x1080 IPS display.


    I'd go for the Acer for surfing and watching the pr0n.

    That Pentium N4200 is a bit sad. You may be able to get a Swift 3 with an i3 for £430

    I suppose its okay, the Pentium N4200 is apparently similar in performance to my Sandy Bridge i3-2310M, and it is sufficient for my browsing habits.

    We have 3 Asus UX360U laptops at work that we use as 'grab and go' laptops. They work shockingly well. They are fast, light, have heaps of battery life.. They dont have a huge amount of storage from memory but for the stuff w use them for they are awesome. We got them on special (which is why we have 3) and they were less than AU$800 each which I think should mean less than 400 of your UK queen head cash.

    It's a pile of wank.

    I noticed, but Apple appear to have fixed it somewhat, benchmarks aren't that bad anymore.

    This is not something I’m going to look for, it’s buried in a 100 page thread.

    I have the late 2013 retina pro and I'm not keen on upgrading to any of the recent piles of crap. I've used a new Pro and the keyboard is retarded to say the least, albeit it feels overall good af. However, technically, it's just a glorified text machine, because no, thermally is probably impossible to do anything since the CPU will 100% go into throttle or burst in a pile of ashes. It's just too thin to have any meaningful cooling, remember those 2x86 that could be cooled using a coin? Yeah, these are not 2x86 but they're trying to do the same.
    Guns make the news, science doesn't.
