Thanks for the info.
After the not to enthusiastic replies I ended up looking a little deeper into everything and ended up going to a store and when i see the lenovo I see what you mean about cheap and I also found out more about the oldish processor and a little more on what all that means.
Anyway I have now ended up with a Acer Aspire M3-581T for £388 I am yet to install all my stuff on it but am using it right now and the build quality and everything about it seems really good so far I did have to take a fair bit of bloatware off but this will suit my needs and I will get a free upgrade to windows 8 when its out next week.
For anyone interested here is the spec
