Cheapest laptop with 1TB in the UK: £200 Lenovo G585

If you don't mind working with a refurbished product (albeit one which comes with a year warranty) and have no qualms using AMD's alternative to the Intel Atom processor, the E-series APU.

Then check out the Lenovo G585 laptop on sale at Argos via the latter's eBay outlet. At less than £200 (plus £3.95 for P&P), this is an enticing proposal especially as it includes 199 Nectar points.

The device runs on an unknown E-series AMD CPU, possibly an E2-1300 clocked at 1.5GHz with an AMD Radeon HD6310 GPU. It includes Lenovo's Veriface's face recognition, 4GB of RAM, a 1TB hard disk drive, a DVD writer, a 15.6in 1,366 x 768 pixel display, Windows 8, an Ethernet port, three USB ports, HDMI connector, a webcam and a weight of 2.6Kg.

All in all, it is a fairly standard laptop although its price is likely to get heads turning given the fact the copy of Windows 8 and the hard disk drive have likely cost more than £100 by themselves. This would serve someone who wants an affordable computer with a massive storage capacity.

Bear in mind though that the E-Series APU that powers it is a rather old and slow processor which is unlikely to sustain the strain of say, full HD display.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
