We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a front camera to this portable PC and we think the Asus PU551LA (£518.40), the DELL Inspiron 17 (£512.70), or the HP ProBook 440 is also worth considering.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including cheaper laptops such as the DELL Inspiron 15R, the Acer Aspire E5-571, or the Asus X75A (£462.59).

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the HP ProBook 640 (£770.38) (SSD and higher rated) or the Lenovo T440 (SSD and cheaper).
