PCWorld, laptops, SSDs - outbreak of stupid
So, I'm seeing what pcworld have by way of reasonable laptops - no atoms, no dubious bottom of the pile stuff. i3's with 4Gb ram start under £350. I have converted a couple of machines to SSDs and the increase in performance is incredible so I want one in a laptop.
Why, then, is the first i-series with a SSD an i7 asus with a 256Gb ssd at just under £1000? I suspect it's because people compare the 128Gb ssd machine with the cheaper 500Gb disc machine and buy the spinning media. A cheap laptop would be vastly improved by an ssd - is the lack of awareness of this hampering the machines available to the great British public?
