Absolute stormer of a deal.

my appetite for risk would not low me to buy something this expensive from China directly.
customs and warranty issues would be amongst the concerns.

I will be voting hot as this is for the deal and not my personal issues and bad history buying tech from China.

Do they come with a UK keyboard layout?

Chinese warehouse, not EU .

I would usually turn my nose up at a 940MX, but in an ultra slim laptop like this it's quite compelling. Nice to see a 256gb SSD too!

Would certainly have considered this if I hadn't bought the Zenbook late April.

Fairly sure it's the legit version made for the Chinese market... so you would have to change the language if you wanted it in English. I'm not sure if there are other differences.

Personally I'm not going for this because I can't risk that amount of money. It is still excellent specs for the price, and most of them will probably be fine, but the 'what if' doesn't make me feel comfortable, nor do I want to risk going through the credit card claim process with that much money in the balance.

Pay by credit card, if it's crap or breaks in a few months do a charge back. (Amex good for this/

However it's potential customs and vat that will sting.

Agree with you there

If this was in the EU warehouse, I would risk it, from HK or CN... not a chance. The item isn't the problem, the supplier and their shipping location.

Wow. I don't trust gearbest with a £50 phone, you must be absolutely crazy to throw away £500+ on these scammers.
#14
£500+ spend with gearbest.....braver than me OP. Just remember to throw the guarantee in the bin on receipt...you may as well for what use it will be if you ever need it.

i always mention it, but you always get the very vocal "I always buy from China, and nothing bad ever happened".
but the rest of us in the silent majority have indeed suffered from crap products and nonexistent customer service and useless warranty.

I am very very happy for those who didn't get any issues, but they got lucky.
I hope they never ever get any issues and suffer like we have.

I do buy from China quite a bit, but I do my.research and buy bits and bobs and not important stuff.

Had a very bad experience with Gearbest and would not recommend buying something like a laptop from them. Bought a Xiaomi Note from Gearbest which developed a faulty screen. Sent the phone back in Jan for replacement - once received they said that phone will be repaired and returned and not replaced - which would have been fine.. but.. 6 months later still no news from China.. I bought another phone in the meantime hence OK, would not want to repeat the same with a laptop

If you paid by credit card just Section 75 it.

I bought this under a month ago at same price and received it within 2 weeks of ordering. I did a clean install of Windows 10 English bought from ebay, as on the chinese version even if you change the language there are a few things still in chinese.

Only other thing to note is that it has a US keyboard layout, two slight differences I can tell are that the @ key is moved to shift and hold 2 key, and I don't see a pound sign on the keyboard.

Can't fault the laptop performance in general, I love the screen.
