Apart from screen size, the only difference between them is that this one comes with bigger SSD.

I had it since Friday and so far can't complain, altough it takes time to get used to the touch screen (not had a touch screen laptop before but it's actually very handy feature!)

How you finding the 1037u processor performing in day to day tasks? I have one in a micro PC and it just about copes with playing full HD video.

I bought this as a portable, on the go laptop, not a gaming machine or advanced editing computer.

Office programms are working smoothly without any problems, same as playing full HD videos, listening to music, web-browsing etc.

If you check the benchmark, this CPU is just slightly slower than i3 4130, but way more cheaper, so for me, this is value for money.

I can't see a cheaper Win 10 touch screen laptop (screen size min. 14") anywhere else and I did proper research before I bought this one.

I checked the benchmark s, the i3 4130 is 2 or 3 times faster than this CPU. Those benchmarks tend to flatter less capabe phone and tablet cpus, but it is "way more cheaper"

How'd you work that out? Not being snarky, just wondered.

Just type the processor number followed by "benchmark" into Google etc.
It will come up with a result for Passmark.
1037u has benchmark of 1743 average, and i3-4130 is 4771.
The 1037u is "crippleware".

While the 1037u is 4 years old now it's hardly fair comparing it to a desktop processor.

Even the newest Kabylake i3-7100u will give you a passmark of 3938. A 15w i3 from 2013 was not much better than the 1037u, it was just clocked a little higher.

If you scroll to the bottom some real benchmark scores are listed, the ones I saw tend to make cheaper / mobile chips look better than they are, the old i3 gets 2 3 or more times the scores in each benchmark

For what it is and what you would use it for, it's a pretty good price for the spec.

My pet topic is why people should be buying business laptops second hand rather than semi-disposable, laptop-shaped junk like this. Just buy a refurbished Thinkpad.
I've got this exact processor on my fanless PC running Kodi. It's fine as a low rent medi-pc, but running Windows 10 on it is excruciating. Even running Lubuntu on it, it's slow, but just about usable.
