We compared all the other portable PCs with a front camera to this laptop and we think the T440, and the T440 both from Lenovo which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative notebook PCs which also have a front camera which you might also want to consider including the DELL Latitude 13 3440 (£481.90).
