Received a bit of bad feedback from some who had bad experiences with it. For my part I have bought 2 and have had no problems with either. Its now below the hundred quid mark which in my opinion is great value for what it is.

Hope this helps someone looking for a cheap last minute xmas present!!

I'm typing this on one of these as we speak.
Perfect for light use and lying in front of tv surfing, which is what the majority of people use this type of machine for.

If you are a power user, then you have no business thinking about getting this machine, and you need to move on.

It is no Surface Pro, but it is IMO very competent at what it does.

quick question
what can Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book can do that this tablet can't do?

A lot! This only has an Atom processor, 2Gb RAM and small storage. Think of this as quarter of what the cheapest Surface Pro is and can do. I have a similar one which is great for watching videos and browsing, but when you start putting heavier things on then it really slows down. I just put some awesome old games on like Portal which it can actually run quite well surprisingly!

Good deal so heat!

I've owned one of these. In the end got a dualboot from China because I wanted Android too but would strongly recommend this for the price.

Probably TCB around 2% I think.

Such a shame it's not USB 3 and it's not easy to find out it's not.

These are really good tablets for the price, I bought one slightly over a year ago for just about the same price. In many ways it is better than our iPads: connectivity is easier via the HDMI and USB ports and storage can be easily and cheaply expanded with a SD card. The keyboard is a real bonus, I got a nice case from Fintie which tidies it up well. The only issue I have had is that the tablet takes a long time to charge (I'd say about twice as long as an iPad), I don't think there is anything wrong, and it is not a big problem as I charge it overnight and the battery life is good.

I'd certainly recommend this machine if one needs a larger tablet that is almost a laptop, it is excellent for streaming, browsing and running the MS Office programs that came with it. At under £100 this is a bargain, so I've added some heat.

haven't found it to be slow generally but then I've only used for Kodi, Office and general browsing which is what it is intended for. Agree that the keyboard can easily disconnect in certain circumstances - its magnetically connected so care needs to be taken.

i know others answered you but I thought I'd throw this out there too!

if you're looking to portable game, the pro series have blew my expectations out the window!

my surface pro 2 is playing shogun 2 on high graphical quality. that to me is insane for a tablet/laptop hybrid.

Brilliant, I wasn't sure if it was like a mobile windows like on my mother's Nokia or a proper Windows to add .exe files if this is the case I'm getting one lol.

I'm seriously considering getting one of the Chinese tablets like the Teclast X98 described here: http://techtablets.com/recommended-chinese-tablets-brands/

Has anyone had experiences with Chinese tablets like this and can give me advice/feedback based on real first hand experience?

Apart from the Linx being slow and laggy compared to the MS Surface, also the screen resolution. The Linx tablet doesn't have full pen support, does not have a pressure sensitive digitizer screen (no specialised pen) The MS Surface Pro does, and is ideal for artist, art students and graphic designers etc.

I'm looking for something for uni that will be ok for essays and watching the odd film.
Would this be ok do you think, or is it too small?
Was looking at the HP Stream and Lenovo 100s but this looks to be fairly similar spec?

I have a similar one which is great for watching videos and browsing........

But isn't that what these types of things are best used for anyway?

You know, sitting on the sofa watching a video or browsing the internet whilst your loved one wears your trousers and takes control of the TV?;)

I may be old-school, but when I want to do anything 'heavy', the last thing I want to use is a 10" screen. I would rather use a dual 24" screen PC setup any day over any laptop or tablet, be it a Microsoft, Apple or Android.

With a keyboard, laptops/tablets maybe OK for the odd email, Word document (other word processors are available oO), whilst on the move but for serious work (video-editing, photo-editing, power-browsing, checking HUKD;), tablets just stifle workflow (IMHO of course).

I would actually like to see a side by side challenge/comparison between a PC user and a hip tablet and/or laptop user with the same 'heavy project' just to see how they would compare and what the difference would be time-wise for completion of the task.

Like I said earlier, it's probably because I'm old-school.

I got one of the 12" linx's for £200 on black friday. Initially was impressed but i tried to use it for work and it just kept having problems, stupidly slow charge time, keyboard was very temperamental and software froze fairly regularly/laggy on web browsing. That was with 4gb ram so i would question how well this will run with half of that. Ended up returning it.

Just my experience but if this model works out similar i would probably pay under £100 for it despite the problems. Heat for the price.

Pretty much down to taste. For me its a good compromise of price/performance/portability

This would be fine. A proper laptop would be better, but it would cost quite a bit more.

Is it good enough for video calls via Skype?

(I purchased Tesco Connect tablet PC (Windows 10), but returned it to Ebuyer recently. When you use Skype on that device it loses 20 to 30% of words from your conversation and the video quality is just awful.)

Voucher code details say "For reserve & collect please ask in store for the discount to be applied at payment."

The product description says that the offer is available in store too and you need to tell them to apply the discount. Store clerk was probably misinformed.

Had one of these but couldn't warm to if, so sold it and bought a laptop instead. I'd recommend it as a tablet but if you want to use like a laptop or netbook I found the keyboard clunky and frustrating especially the mouse pad.

I've had a love hate relationship with this tablet. I loved it when I found it would run all my desktop applications. It is very tough, for example I dropped it on the floor recently during a "hate" moment and the screen stayed intact. I actually had to jump on it to break the screen and... the tablet still works. Overall I'd give it 7/10 but it can be hugely frustrating at times with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth issues.
