Ok for web browsing and light document work but crashes when you try doing anything slightly demanding.

Returned mine a few weeks after I bought it.

The hd screen isn't all that either.

You'd be better off buying an ex business machine with the money than this

sk8erjm1 I agree. I bought an ex-business HP Elitebook 8440p almost two years ago off ebay for £120 including shipping. Far better than a consumer laptop.

From the reviews, they have had a few driver issues, but is it a problem with the hardware, or Win10??

For the money it is worth a punt; if I hadnt just bought my daughter something else techie for Christmas, this would be on the list.

Personally for lectures I've got a Lenovo Chromebook and the battery life combined with its suprisingly solid performance works wonders. I tend to use google docs and convert to MS word when submitting assignments. Works solidly.

I got a Toshiba Z930, I7 Ultrabook for £90 but then again I do work in a computer refurbishing factory, but the HP model you are on about are on about is still a good price, generally speaking buying ex business gets you best bang for buck, I always laugh when I seen atoms advertised at like £300

Great for kids & grandparents!

A lenovo 100s might be a better bet? Similar spec, but about £40 cheaper at argos, I think.
#10
This has a 1080p screen

This is £99 in my local, there was one left.

The Stream is better.

The problem with the Lenovo (and possibly this, is that 32GB isnt really enough to download and install a full size Win10 OS update; however, as there is a 64GB equipped version to be sold in Germany in a couple of weeks, it suggests the SSD IS replaceable, so can be upgraded in the future.

Obviously this is just speculation.

As well as one for my daughter, I was considering this as a replacement for my ageing EEPC901, something I can use as a hub when travelling, to charge cameras, phones etc, with only one UK plug adapter; and also to run a network to moving files and photos around between the family when we are in places with poor internet access.

They are usually soldered as it's the cheapest way, putting in a connector adds cost. And it's eMMC, not SSD!

Its just the format, and nothing I havent tackled in the past; ever unsoldered RAM chips from a motherboard to upgrade them to faster chips??

Give me the right sized iron for the job, and a suitable solder sucker, and I will try anything.

Yeah, no way to change the memory, but I've got a 100s here (from last year John Lewis Cyber Monday for £99) and it's managed fine so far, including taking windows updates etc. Could use more/faster memory and ram, but for the price it's been great

Buy cheap, buy twice is all I have to say.

You have to exercise common sense, there are plenty of companies who rip you off with high prices for shoddy goods, or premium prices because of the brand status (Apple, looking at you).
There are equally many cheap brands that are just as good, or better; people used to sneer at TPLink, but now they are established as one of the best (if not THE best), maker of consumer grade routers and PC accessories.
I have been using TPL kit for years, and never had an issue, but the two famous name routers I had prior to my first TPL MELTED.
Medion gear has a reputation as being basic, but reasonably well made, going back a decade.

Get some heat resistant rubber sleeving and slip it over the end of the solder sucker (about 1.5cm longer than the nozzle); not only does it protect the non heat resistant plastic nozzle, but it allows you to get the end a LOT closer to the soldering, so vastly improving to suck. It is rare I dont get every drop of solder in one suck.
