The LED screen features a matte coating so you can work and play outside or in direct sunlight without excessive screen glare.

Plenty of storage

A large 1 TB hard drive provides plenty of space for games, documents and media while backing up is easy thanks to Windows Cloud integration and three USB 3.0 ports that offer fast data transfer to external storage.

There's also a handy eSATA/USB 3.0 dual port that can be used to quickly share data between the laptop and other computer's internal drives; perfect for adding your old PC's files to your new laptop.

Liverpool GB Music, gaming or video fan
1) Excellent Gaming Performance
2) Fast
3)HD Display & Brightness
4) Fairly long battery life
5) Stays cool even while playing demanding games & having many programs open at the same time - this also doesn't seem to stress the i5 processor a lot either.
1)DVD's (Film's & TV) don't seem to work very well or not at all
2) Settings constantly being changed without you doing them (such as power plans and unnecessary desktop shortcuts like the Homegroup)

Care Plan for Laptops

A Care Plan protects your laptop if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap. You also benefit from a computer healthcheck every year.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month
