I have been using an Acer C720 Chromebook running full Windows 10 for the past year at college and it has been a pretty decent laptop to say it is fairly low spec and shouldn't run Windows. However because the display is starting to develop light spots and I am starting to get more into software development, now seems to be the time to replace it.

Since I get Windows free through Dreamspark, I wanted a laptop that didn't come with Windows, was portable and lightweight and was around £500-600. PC Specialists 13.3" Lafité II seems to be a good laptop. The only thing I am wondering is if it is worth spending the extra £74 on an i7. Configured with 8GB RAM, an i5 6200U and a 250GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD without Windows it comes to £527 and with an i7 £601. I was wondering if people have used PC Specialist before and if there laptops are any good?

It looks good just make sure they have it in stock I had a friend who waited awhile for his to be dispatched.

You said about getting into software development so It would be best invest into the i7. The laptop has solid reviews its very macbook esq but that's not a bad thing.
