Windows 10 Intel® Celeron® Processor N2840 Memory: 4 GB Hard drive: 500 GB Seems like quite a good laptop for the price reduced for the pc world/currys bank holiday sale.

Never understood the voting on here, this is basically a 100 quid tablet laptop hybrid, there have been i5s posted for 40 more than this recently

Regardless of whether this is a good deal or not, to say there have been brand new i5 laptop deals for less than £240 posted recently is not true. I think there was one refurbished laptop deal for that price in recent months, and a few more for less than £300, but no new ones.

So this deal expires at midnight. Im very undecided whether to go for it. Never had an asus laptop before. Also its specs are very much similar to the hp essential which i can get from hp store for 339, what makes this worth the extra 60 quid? The resolution, though above there seems to be major question marks over this anyway. Hmm

Do yourself a favour...Never buy Asus. Learn from my mistakes.

purchased this in store last night and for some reason it came through as £391, never questioned why though

hey guys need some good advice.
unfortunately missed this as oos now, so ended up going for the Vortex Marauder. was that a good choice?
Was also tempted by http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HP-Pavilion-550-152na-Desktop-PC-Windows-10-8-GB-RAM-2-TB-HDD-AMD-Radeon-R5-/131671962185?hash=item1ea842b249
I'm looking for a good gaming desktop to run high end spec new games without spending a fortune. would the Marauder be a good point as far as upgrades go?
thanks! :)
cjsanandreas
If you are serious about gaming I'd be inclined to go for dennett316's deal, the GTX 970 is a step up in graphics performance.

If you are not as intent on gaming quality then this Lenovo seems like it'd more appropriate for downloading videos etc. given its 2TB HDD.

so I'm looking for a gaming pc. don't want to spend too much but want a good rig that will last a few years playing decent games (sims for example :D) but every time I look at pcs you always get someone saying they are poor for this or that. obviously if you build the best of the best with no money limit well done you! however an average Joe like myself wouldn't know where to start. so is this a good deal? what could be improved and are there any better prebuilt rigs out there for reasonable cost? (let's use the £600 that this deal is as limit)
failing that someone want to build me a pc? :{

£600 this is as probably as good as it gets unless you have access to your companies MSDN account and SSD supply ;)

No doubt has the cheapest crappest 450w PSU money can almost buy.

I've had few pre-build PC probably with crappy PSU - never ever had a problem with them.
If you're not overclocking it should be fin.


Biggest disadvantages of pre-builds are upgrades.
But most of the population just needs the rig to use and this is why this deal is getting hotter and hotter.

Got a call to say PC World Staples corner only had a display item and not boxed . Guy wasn't willing to budge on price for ex display so I left it. If anyone is still on the hunt for one and don't mind ex display for same price. Was in good condition but he peeved me off.
As a sales colleague, I cannot stand customers that want a discount on ex-display goods. Either buy it at the advertised price or wait for it to come down during clearance. Giving a discount on a £30 item is pointless, much better to give to profitable customers.
A sales colleague? Is that what you refer to yourself as? *hahaha*
There is no colleague about it and your inability to comprehend that second hand goods shouldn't be sold at retail indicates you are a poor one at that.
Good thing you don't work commission; you are clearly not very good at your job and likely that both you and the salesman in the post above may have cost PC World customers permanently.

It's obvious why people would expect a discount on ex-display goods, especially as in this case it was unboxed. Why should people pay full price for what is effectively second-hand goods? I realise that your group of companies regularly pass off second-hand returned goods as being new but it's not unreasonable for consumers to expect a discount on ex-display goods.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/consumers-warned-over-used-goods-sold-as-new-1345914.htmlhttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1432323/Dixons-is-accused-of-selling-used-goods-as-new-again.html
Brilliant replies. However I'm sure that any HUKD customer would be a complete waste of sales staff time, as should be expected! Though I love browsing the site and sucking up all the good clearance deals you guys list (even got real time alerts set up).

Also, the Staples store clearly said its an ex display model. They were not selling it as new, so I fail to see the point in you linking those articles to substantiate your response which seems to be all over the place.

Finally, I'm not averse to giving discount, in fact I have one of the highest % discount in my region, let alone store! But it goes towards customers who actually try and engage in conversation. Now yes, a lot of staff are rather off the ball and that's due to the firms lack of training. All I do is talk about features that a customer may not know about (HDR, Ecobubble, why "u" processors aren't all they are cracked up to be etc) and then usually they respond well, allowing for a relaxed sale rather than DO YOU WANT CAREPLAN, ONE MONTH FREE, TWO MONTHS FREE....

If they still want to treat the colleague like dirt as I suspect some of the people here would, screw it. I'll hit my other targets (that don't require addons/extra money) but instead take a lot longer.

Anywho keep on replying, I quite enjoy reading the hate for DSG.

These are a pain in the bum. They compulsory time out, and crash all the time.
So far have had a rock solid 4G connection.
EE's network is brilliant and these things are great when up and running. They have a time out facility which means that they go into standby after a period of inactivity (30 mins I think). To get them up and running you need to press the button for a second to bring them out of standby. Makes them wholly unsuitable as a home broadband alternative. I've had one and at the same time sourced another for a less technical person who was out of their home in temporary accommodation. They are a nightmare. In the space of a few months they've needed hard reset at least twice and repeated difficulties coming out of a period of inactivity requiring the device to be switched off and then switched on.
This is easily turned off in the menu. Sounds like you had a faulty one. I talk from experience

there is no option to turn off wifi timeouts on this model

Good price. Paid 130 about 2 month ago. Personally though, I think this genre is dead. The setlist for RB4 is terrible and you still cannot import RB1-3 as promised. Harmonix rushed this release to get it out before/at the same time as guitar hero and in doing so have left so many flaws in the game. I mean you can't even play online with friends as they removed online play! That will be why it is so cheap.

Why the need to spend so much on a keyboard?


Some people spend up to 120 so this isn't the most expensive. But you have to ask yourself about value... why would anyone spend 40 quid on jeans when you can get some for 12 quid at your local primark. People spend money on things they believe it is worth. I for one bought my keyboard due to quick responsive times of the keys (mechanical) and I game a lot. So for me, the value was worth it.


same reasoning for me aswell ... GAMING and the quality :)

Seems to be delisted from their site now. Pretty gutted, bought one a few weeks ago and it was faulty so returned it today. Would have liked a replacement because nothing really competes at this price, but they had none and it doesn't seem like they'll be getting any more in stock.
Going to have to look for something else
Mind if i ask what the fault was?
The touchpad was the main issue for me, as on occasion it'd just stop responding. My Radius also ran stupidly loud, even when there was minimal activity to the point I placed my earphones in simply to null the noise. There also seemed to be a lot of software bugs after updating Windows 10. The shortcut to toggle the keyboard backlight (Fn+Z), for example, simply just refused to work. Downgrading did remove the issues, but it's hardly a solution.
It's a nicely built machine, just flawed
Ive had the exact same issue with the touchpad as well as the loud fan. Its a shame really

That's actually pretty interesting , maybe the lack of quality control is the reason they were flogging them off so cheap because it sounds like these are prone to faults

I have the 4K version which also has the i7 processor and it is excellent. The 4K display on it is amazing and the colours are also natural. It has the Harman Kardon in built speakers which are fantastic and surround sound for watching movies. I also downloaded GTA 5 on it recently and the game runs a dream with very clear graphics and smooth gameplay. My only concern is the mouse touch pad which can sometimes be tempremental but that only happens rarely and the touch screen compensated for it.
Have you updated the bios? Its not on the toahiba update app but its on their website. Fixed it for me. I have 4k one too, video on it is astonishing

It'll be the same as the Belkin but with faster tech (the 'ac' and 'USB3' bits of the title). Not worth getting unless your router is also 'ac', and you have a spare USB3 port (blue socket instead of black)

2 left without controllers in currys wednesbury and 1 left at pc world wednesbury also without controller - ex display
Stores worth keeping an eye on then. HO will eventually reduce those prices further. Under £100 wouldn't be unheard of.

Should note that you can pick one of these up for £160 on eBay with the 20% off code (CUK20) right now but it won't last long http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ASUS-EeeBook-E403-14-Laptop-Windows-10-32GB-eMMC-Intel-Pentium-N3700-Grey-/121842457793?hash=item1c5e605cc1:g:UeEAAOSw9uFW8~yo

Shame this is the 2GB RAM model. Note - these can not have the RAM upgraded.
While Windows 10 can, and will run fine with 2GB of RAM, Once you start loading on non-app stuff, like 3rd party print drivers, chrome/firefox, symantec/avg anti-virus etc they'll start sucking the ram up as soon as you boot the machine.
Otherwise, if you can live with the offerings Microsoft give you by default, and apps, you'll have a really nice machine for the price.

Bought one today and just installed Chrome on it. (McAfee on by default). RAM usage at 1.4GB (of 1.9GB) with Chrome open with bbc, wired.com and hotukdeals (!).

But I agree 2GB is really not much, so sticking to MS apps is probably the best bet.

Build quality seems good, darkish aluminium case. Screen no better or worse than the £200ish Acer ES1-512 that my son uses. Keyboard fine but space-bar needs a firmer push than the rest of the keys.

Really like the thinness, silent operation and good battery life. Seems like a good deal.


​probably the mcafee, i deleted it as soon as i got it. a fresh windows 10 install helps by the way

So I guess the RAM and the eMMC ssd chip (if you like) are both soldered to the board and irremovable?
Can anyone actually completely confirm that this is the case because whilst I don't doubt the memory I'd like to think the ssd could be changed although could be quite costly due to the size of the part
Everything is replaceable if you have the skills, are the parts in this laptop user replaceable, as in can Joe Bloggs and his mates do it? Nope. http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/ASUS/e403sa
Where I work we can upgrade the NAND flash in an iPhone to a larger size and replace tiny I.Cs such as U2 IC. That's the sort of skills you require to upgrade this laptop, so in theory it's possible, in practice you need excellent skills.
Apart from the skills I'm guessing you need specialist equipment as well?
Hmm you can get IC Chip grinders, but it can be done by hand. The problem with chip grinders, especially the chinese ones is they're limited to certain ICs such as removing cloud lock on iPhones. The iPhone 6 is the only phone worth doing cloud unlock on to be fair. Anyway we don't get in to that, we do stuff such as replace U2 IC (iPhone) and various other ICs on phone mainboards and we don't have a chip grinder.
Here's how an IC grinder works >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_beuQHuZGY
What you need for most repairs is decent hot air and decent soldering iron and practice.

Thanks for responding. I learnt something new today.

If you purchase directly from the Microsoft online store, you can save a few pennies: http://i63.tinypic.com/2i7wejd.png
Actually, no, the prices are exactly the same on the Microsoft web site

I'd be wanting 8gb ram these days tbh
If you actually need 8gb RAM you should be looking at the Pro with an i5. The surface 3 doesn't need 8gb for light use which is what it's aimed at
