Heat from me, it's a great saving over the list price, and in 4 years time you'll be able to sell it for £400. Try that with a PC of the same price!

Obviously you can't because no PC is ever going to appreciate in value to be worth more than it cost in 4 years.

Livid, John Lewis May or May not have lost my order during Transit for Click & Collect to my local store... They have to Investigate as It'll be the 3rd Day tomorrow as It was Expected to be Picked up by Friday at 2pm. No one contacted me about it so I'm not happy with the poor service. Rang up demanded to speak to a manager after being told "We'll look into it" So basically the Deliver Driver has either stolen it or John Lewis Staff have decided to take It for themselves on to of their discount. I said I wasn't happy with a Refund & I want a MacBook Air or equivalent MacBook as they can't replace it as It's Out Of Stock obviously. Hmmm.

Still overpriced, like all Apple products.
Do remember why Apple are sitting on cash pile of $216bn and struggling to think what to do with it...
They could have a stab at paying some tax.
They do pay some tax. They will contribute to the UK economy significantly more than you or anyone in your family combined over their lifetime do.

I should effing well think so too!
Is that sposed to be some sort of endorsement?:|

there is something called product design. and that's where Apple beats every single competitor.
If you have ever thought about the Dell copycat XPS, or the ASUS ones, you would be amazed how ugly they are, if put next to a macbook.
I've used a MacBook Air 13 and a recent XPS 13 and the XPS has a more premium build quality with much better components as well especially the screen.
I liked the Air, a good basic design but old specs, but the O/S is not for me.
They are both good but different and neither are inexpensive.

an XPS 13 is more comparable to a Macbook Pro Retina to be honest...base XPS13 is almost double the price of this Macbook air..

No expert on graphics cards, but I am not sure why this is so hot. Specs seem a little poor for the price. Okay there is 100 off and having 2 drive bays is cool. But I think some of the MSI laptops would beat this for similar money. Would research more but I am writing on a smartphone.

I could only find this similar...

http://www.ebuyer.com/748760-msi-gl62-6qd-gaming-laptop-9s7-16j612-409?mkwid=s_dc&pcrid=51508044419&pkw=&pmt=&gclid=Cj0KEQjwpZO_BRDym6K_nMye7cEBEiQAVA7RaLXYYHOz62mOihCetLdXlXnKXL0FXO1uxjSED1iycJ4aAjTq8P8HAQ

50 more with a better CPU but no SSD. Depends what your after I guess, I would prefer an SSD as it makes even my i3u fly through everything. There will probably be similar deals but I was struggling to find one with a SSD and HDD that could run gta5 standard games at this price. Always seems to be a compromise, good SSD but hardly any space so would fill up too quick or a big HDD that would perform slow on a Intel u series chip


​I was thinking of the MSI stuff at saveonlaptops, but you are probably right. I bought an i7 there, same spec as this deal but no SSD. £699, but that was back in 2014...

Seems like a good deal i'm holding on my current laptop for a while yet.
Just wanted to say that laptop HDD are 2.5" drives so you can literally just swap the HDD for an SSD without any adapters or whatever.
So if you see a good laptop etc i7 or 960m+ for similar price but no SSD which is usually more expensive to buy. You can just that then upgrade later or just swap out the HDD. I would personally do a clean install of Windows so much bloatware and other stuff you might not know is installed.
I have swapped out the DVD Drive for a SSD so I have the 500GB for backups and the 250GB for the OS and other programs I use.
Obviously you would have to check if you are able to upgrade the laptop without effecting warrenty etc but I turned my pretty low spec laptop into a speedy low spec laptop :)
Only reason I would get a new laptop or tablet is if its light eg 1.5kg and has the USB C or Usb 3/Thunderbolt.
Yeah I was tempted to do that on the other deal but SSD drives are so expensive if you want good space. A 128gb omly leaves about 80gb after windows I think, fills up so fast. Especially if your paying the extra to get a graphics card that could possibly run games like gta5. Still a good option though

Find me a laptop with a higher graphics card and two drives for 550 please
Not higher d-gpu, but definitely better value for money at £500:https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mi.com%2Fmibookair%2Fspecs%2F&sandbox=1
What?!
First of all, the vaguely equivalent laptop comes out more expensive at £574.93. That's before import fees and delivery to the UK.
Secondly, even if it was cheaper (it's going to work out SIGNIFICANTLY more expensive if you get stung by customs, which I'd bet you will), I'd caution people to know what they are buying into spending £550+ on a product from China. If you need to RMA the laptop, you will, even with the best will in the world, run into issues, even if just from a logistical perspective, and even from someone like Xiaomi, who do seem to make fair quality products.
I agree, I just thought it's a good idea to evaluate our deal here, if they can make a better quality/ultra portable/good spec laptop over there commercially available, could be a fair guidance to anyone who might upgrade in near future here.

I do think the laptops they (Xiaomi) are producing are interesting, and as you say, it's always good to explore options!

I think they're probably aiming more at the Macbook air & ultrabook crowd though. When you look at them from that perspective they start to look a bit more appealing.

I'm not sure it troubles the mid end portable gaming market too much though (sadly!).

Additionally - I have a macbook 15 with gfx card in it, and good god does it get hot. Just something for anyone wanting to buy into a unibody metal framed laptop with minimal fan cooling to consider. It gets hot enough that you can't touch certain parts of the laptop for more than a few seconds without pain. I kid you not.


​my partners Mac book air makes a right noise from the fan when I try and play cities skylines on it even in low settings !!! don't think ultra thin is best for any type of gaming yet...

Aesrok, it stated on the BNP terms that you only pay interest on BNP if you don't settle before the 12 months is up...I am surprised you went for this if you feel so unsure of the process
It won't be an issue if you pay next month...or even next sep! :)

I'm not unsure of the process, it "should" be straightforward, pay off the balance before the interest free period ends and I'm good, generally speaking this is how it works.

I am unsure of dealing with Very.co.uk, going from what I've read, they have the ability to f**k up even the simplest tasks.

That said, now that the order has been processed, there is a clear option on their website to pay off the BNPL balance (as opposed to just making a payment towards your balance), which wasn't there as an option previously. Which addresses my query regarding the operation of their site.

Bought it Wednesday night. Delivery via royal mail around 9:30 today.
Ordered one of these for my wife a few weeks ago (though the price was about 50 quid more expensive then!). Still waiting for the £100 credit to be applied to the account (well, earlier this week when I last checked), though at the time it was stated that this would be applied by 1st October so we're still within the time frame. I've got screenshots of the offer on the web site when I ordered in case they try to play silly ****.

Not used it myself, but looks like a nice laptop to me.
Did you order on Thursday ? Delivery by Royal Mail ?

On case anyone was following this, I got an omen laptop from Hp directly in the end, including a omen mouse. Anyone with unidays can get discount, and I discovered asda benefits include Hp! So you get the same student area of the site. Ended up paying £750, so not too bad.
Funny because it's for my Bro, he has a brand new audi on finance, but littlewoods won't give more than £500! The credit score questions were poor, not even asking dates in properties, so I think that's the issue. Oh well, they lose custom and my search goes on

Back in stock but good luck. Just phoned them and they say I have a £500 credit limit as I'm a new customer so can't get it. And cannot increase that limit without buying items from them over time! Also mentioned a minimum £1400 spend to get the 25% deduction. I'll be going elsewhere!


​yeah they said they could raise me up to 900, weird as for very they've given me like 2000 I think !! and very don't include the interest in the value too...

Think I'm going to bite the bullet and go for the i7 version. Give them a call tomorrow and sort out the finance side of things and should have it within a few days.

not a bad price, i believe their B Grade products only get 90day warranty though
They should have a 3 year warranty with Intel though.
Good price CPU for someone building a budget PC imo.
It says ignore any references to warranty in red.

AFAIK all retail Intel CPUs have a 3 year warranty with the manufacturer. I don't see why a b-grade product wouldn't continue to have a manufacturer's warranty.

I think the 90 day warranty is with Overclockers.


​You may be right but I've not seen a faulty cpu for years (maybe 15) and I sell pc's all the time..i buy second hand CPU's all the time as well to save just 10 or 15%.. Obviously you might get a dud but it's highly unlikely.

If Intel would be willing to honour the warranty it would be from the original purchase date (or even manufacture date), seeing as the 4460 launched 30 months ago, I wouldn't bank on getting a long warranty from Intel. However, this would be covered by the consumer rights act, so you should have at least a 6 month warranty from Overclockers, although getting Overclockers to honour their legal obligations can be quite an arduous experience.

I wouldn't really worry about buying used CPUs though, used CPUs are generally quite a safe buy as they're relatively durable (as long as they haven't been misfitted or too heavily abused). It's a good price, I don't know why this is so cold.

Maybe I will finally get round to doing some work on the Surface Pro 4 when I get the keyboard. lol
Oh yeah, you definitely need the keyboard! Kills me that they don't include one and charge as much as they do for one. Having to add an extra ~£100 to the price though. urgh! It delayed my purchase by well over a year until I was able to get a great deal on one. With the ageing Macbook lineup and improvement with Win10 they could be really eating into Apples market, but alas no, just like Google and their Nexus devices, they seem to like snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Astonishing argument over whether or not 1366 x 768 is adequate screen resolution for a laptop. I'd suggest looking at the screens side by side to compare. Personally I'd go for 1920 x 1080p as this is pretty much 'standard' resolution today for video, and I wouldn't expect to pay much more. However, if someone else us happy with the lower res, no skin off my nose.

Yes you should learn between there are or there is or there's and not they're (Epic fail...again). Like I said before whatever helps with your self esteem. We are not all fortunate to be able to go to higher education that why I don't comment on your intelligence. Maybe if you went we wouldn't be having this conversation. Like I said before learn off others. your obvious a child that's why it's been so easy against you.

The "epic fail" is complaining that somebody doesn't know the differences between "there are" and "there is" or "there's" and "they're" and then writing "your obvious" instead of "You're obviously"!

I don't know why you are talking about higher education. This level of basic English grammar is usually taught at school long before the age of 16.

specs not too shabby.
I have this Laptop. It has excellent specs. Plus the SSD is really fast. I can boot up machine in 12 seconds. £430 is a good price. I paid £474 direct from HP. All depends on weather you trust MISCOs 2.1/10 pish poor rating to actually deliver your product with no aggravation. Personally I didn't want to take. Risk so i ordered from HP. At least there customer service is exceptional.

this isn't really that good a deal, FHD screen aside, IMO..

i wouldn't pay 430 quid for those specs taking away the FHD. i don't think the screen is worth the extra personally

Misco is fine. But I'd like to say that: on a laptop, my biggest complaint at budget levels is keyboard and trackpad. Had a cheap Lenovo and it was awful. Got a good HP now. Envious of my wife's MacBook
Would not but from Misco personally. Reviews on https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.misco.co.uk are not good

You clearly have no clue what you are talking about. Try harder.
Isn't this a better deal? Only differences seem to be the 6600k vs 6400k and cooling system vs £820 and £672:

How can you say that when people still use the 2500k? that thing pairs with 1070s fine, granted ARMA and Total War, may notice something, but saying a Skylake (Most recent intel cpu) is a bottleneck, nonsense ???

Just recently upgraded my GTX960 to a 1070.

The 960 is a great wee card and will play all modern games fine. Not on ultra 4k, but 1080 fine. I am obviously excluding poor ports like arkham knight which my 1070 even struggles with at points and it cost nearly the same as this whole PC just or the card.

Overwatch I ran on ultra 60fps constant. World of Warcraft I used to play on Ultra during Warlords of Draenor (more high now with Legion launching and the engine upgrading significantly) without dropping a frame while streaming to Twitch.

In conclusion, don't listen to the snobs, the GTX960 is a great GPU for a budget.

EDIT: before I get pounced on, I mean specifically for this deal. If I was building a budget gaming PC I wouldn't put in a 960, but I couldn't build one for £500

I use a gtx 750ti and get 1080p 60fps on rainbow six siege, batman arkham city etc. I think you can find something more like £300 with a gtx 750ti in it on ebay. There was a post of a medion refurbished for £220 with those specs!
this seems overkill

Yes but what settings you running those at? with Batman, it's going to have to be low
750ti will run everything out right now med-high at 1080p, obviously some high end games will have to be more med side, but Batman is just a product of poor development.

As above, not it won't. Unless your happy with below 30fps. It's a good card, not that good

Update - correct one now (after having had to chase the postman for it). Have done a full scan with malwarebytes having heard the previous horror stories with Lenovo plus superfish and a couple of other nasties - all clean it seems!

One thing I'm not keen on is it seems like changing the battery is a major operation involving dismantling and not sure if even allowed under warranty :/ Quite stylish however (for a white silver laptop at least)

Anyway, looking forward to being able to finally play Max Payne 3 :)
Now out of stock - I REALLY hope they've sent me the correct one this time (should find out tomorrow)

I bought this laptop after seeing this post because I had been searching for a while for a laptop that had 8 GB RAM, SSD storage, Full HD, i5-6200u (what they recommend for photography). Thanks for posting this I am so pleased with it. It even has a back-lit keyboard and aluminum cover. I also have a DSLR and I am beginner at Photography and I think this laptop will be perfect for me. I was looking at the Apple Macbook Pro 15 inch (starting at £1599) and I think getting this has saved me a lot of money.

you can use an external hard drive (1tb around £50ish) or even memory sticks, all connect by usb.

Thanks. If you need an external one, why not just build one in? Seems strange to me... must be getting too old. Lol.

I only use it to browse, but am very impatient so it needs to be quick. My current laptop is great, really fast and can run loads of tabs in separate browsers, while I'm watching something etc, but something is wrong with the power socket (repair shop struggling!) and it gives me an excuse for a new one :p. I've not had a large screen before, so not sure if it will bother me. I have had Acer but not Lenovo. The Lenovo one is heavier and has potentially a different graphics card. Most other stats seem similar apart from the 8gb RAM, one being DDR3L and the other DDR4. Any suggestions would help me weigh up what to do and thanks in advance.

Not sure I trust the £100 cashback. There is nothing at the checkout stage to confirm the cashback has been applied. I am a new customer so also qualify for 10% off, and Quidco 2%. So with all discounts applied it would be a really good deal. But not willing to take the risk. Thanks anyway OP.


Can't use it with other offers (it's in the T&Cs) so it won't stack

Nice find if cashback is honoured otherwise price is too high for the spec of this laptop, although IMO with a screen as big as this it really needs to be full HD so you can fully utilise the space. I remember the last time I tried Very's cashback they declined it due to me trying to use a 10% off code in conjunction with the offer, so be warned if you are thinking of doing this.

They then overprice the crap out of it and its no wonder they don't sell well. If they bundled the keyboard cover with it at that price I would have bought one but I refuse to be a mug.

Don't forget the M3 version can currently be had for £566 with cashback (or even less with trade-in):
http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/microsoft-surface-pro-4-128-gb-10139732-pdt.html

Add the keyboard cover above and you're looking at £587 all-in. That's for a premium, magnesium-build tablet/laptop hybrid with a 2736 x 1824 high DPI screen and pen input. It even includes the Adobe CC bundle, worth roughly £100. How is that overpriced?

An equivalent iPad Pro (12.9 / 128Gb) will cost £799 without the keyboard (£139) and pencil (£79). Given what even the Core M Surface can do, it's a bargain at these prices.

I have always wanted one of these but Microsoft target these as laptop and tablet killers however the greedy fools don't bundle the keyboards with them and expect people to pay over £100 more for a keyboard.

They're predominately targeted at professional use. Their price does appear poor value when lined up against other consumer items but if you're using it professionally, the modest improvements over cheaper consumer grade items make more sense.

If you use your device to make your living that premium can be justified.

I though ram beyon 4-6gb didnt make much difference for laptops? Does 12gb ram really improve performance
Well it depends what you want to do. If you are only using the laptop to play on Facebook then no you do not need 12GB of RAM. But then again would you think it worth spending over 500 on a laptop when you could do the same thing on a laptop half the price.

Alternately, if you are a power user with lots going on and running a VM or two then 12GB is very nice indeed on a laptop.

The same specification from Lenovo can be obtained for £977 so while it seems a good deal for this option, the listing is rather lacking in the important details. Personally, I'd rather buy the stock T460 for the double digit battery life.

No mention around what battery configuration is being offered, what warranty is being offered ie are these already missing the best part of the first year of the typical 3 year Lenovo warranty, what keyboard they have considering these could be cheap grey imports among other things.

I think this PC would be overkill for most of those games, a GTX 1060 is only vital for the latest demanding games. You'd be better off spending less on a system based around a 950, 960 or even 750 Ti to save more money.
You also don't need a second graphics card for a dual-monitor setup, one card will do the job.
Any systems about you recommend? I was hoping to find a system with plenty of heat on HUKD but they seem quite scarce, the only places I can find plenty of systems to compare are on ebay which I am rather wary of. I would be happy to build myself but even the entry level gaming pc on partpicker does not come to much less than this system (and I don't have much time left until his birthday).
This deal on a refurb (with 12-month guarantee and Windows included) was posted and expired yesterday - you need to be quick with some gaming PC deals. I see some cheaper PCs on AWD here and here - these aren't massively better than the refurb though.

​got my 13 yr old the i5 6500 version from these for Xmas, I got windows 10 key from opiumpulses, I upgraded the cooler and put a wireless card in it, gonna put an ssd in myself.[/quote]
Is there much advantage to an ssd, and could I fit both in?
What is the benifit of upgrading the cooler, is it less noise?
He does't need wireless hopefully as he has a wire runing to his room.

​ssd is a must, yes can fit both and more if required, stock cooler is ok but an aftermarket cooler will do a better job.

Thinking of getting this one for my 15 year olds birthday.Although this is a bit more than i wanted to pay I'm not at all up to speed on what is needed for gaming. I would be happy to build myself but when I compared it seems it would cost me more to buy the parts.
The type of games he would want to be playing are Garry's Mod, Ark: Survival Evolved, Left 4 Dead 2, CS:GO, The Forest and Minecraft(where he runs a few servers). Would this set up be ok for him?
Would it be worth doing any of the upgrades for him? Such as swapping for the 1TB hybrid HD for an extra £27.
Also he has mentioned he wants to be able to run a second monitor in the future, is this done by adding another graphics card and if so would I be able to add one to this set up?
Or has anybody else found a better option elsewhere?
I think this PC would be overkill for most of those games, a GTX 1060 is only vital for the latest demanding games. You'd be better off spending less on a system based around a 950, 960 or even 750 Ti to save more money.

You also don't need a second graphics card for a dual-monitor setup, one card will do the job.

Being a tad lazy here because its always so difficult to find out, is this standard DDR3 or DDR4? Just wondering as i know its not hugely important but at least i know its a newer model if so
5200u only goes to ddr3http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/846/Intel_Core_i5_Mobile_i5-5200U_vs_Intel_Core_i5_Mobile_i5-6200U.html
Would you reckon its worth it to pay the £30 more and get the HP250 G4?

I wouldn't expect it to make a vast difference tbh. Bigger difference to the speed would be getting a ssd in either of them. So maybe this one and spending the £30 on ssd if they are readily upgrade-able.

Though of all the laptop deals lately this remains the one that tempts me most

I'm really pleased with mine! Looks great and runs quick. I've played counterstrike go and world of warcraft and both run fine!
Hey, did anyone get this ? What's it like ? Just ordered this morning, would imagine it's pretty fast for day to day, does it do okay with games too ??
just tried to order this, the 10% has expired and the new user £25 and the refer a friend £20 are not valid in conjunction with the £100 off. (According to the online chat. tried to call 3 times and was hung up on each time, once after 11 minutes and nearly completing purchase. This company a joke and the deal expired.

First time using Very... On the payments page do I sign up for the credit thing? I'm only allowed £600 apparently and this laptop is now £650 so how would that work out?
Also tried applying the different codes but they said invalid?

Hi. Yeah you sign up for the credit but you might be okay once you've applied a code as it'll drop to 588 after 10% off is applied. The code we used was KLLHN for 10% but I think that may have expired on Sunday although I think Very always give discount on first used credit. It's maybe worth speaking to them on live chat or ringing them as this is a great deal if you can get it!

​I'd like to ask why it isn't an all in one? Every all in one I've seen has
1) a separate keyboard - check
2) all components normally found in a tower built into screen - check
3) touch screen - check
4) stand to sit on a desktop or work surface - check

Despite a size difference (most aio start around 19"?)it meets all the criteria of being a small aio straight out of the box. You stream would be discounted as no built in stand. Your Toughpad, by its very name suggests pad or tablet. And if it's stand is part a separate casing to the machine, it would fall the all in one test.

The x tablet is a valid alternative but the y class processors tend to put me off. It does have a longer warranty, something Microsoft needs to look at.

A grand for a tablet. Just saying.
​It's not a tablet, it's an all in one pc.
No it's definately a Windows Tablet (And highly rated at that) ....
This is an AIO PChttp://core0.staticworld.net/images/article/2014/04/a540_hero_01-100262067-large.jpg
While a nice device, I can't help but feel the M5 powered X1 tablet that's £90 more expensive represents a better deal as it offers the keyboard dock and a 3 year warranty.
​The surface is more than a tablet. I was making the point people dismiss it as an expensive tablet, it's not. It's a 2k resolution screen with dual core processor, dual channel memory and a proper ssd, not emmc as found in cheap tablets. It's a mag alloy casing and has accurate pressure sensitive pen support. Yes it is short keyboard as standard, but add a Bluetooth keyboard if you feel cheap and it will probably still be better built and spec'd than the aio in the picture. If people add a dock and type cover it can be an ultra book replacement on the move and hooked up to multiple monitors and full size keyboard in the office. It's a premium product with nothing as well built or spec'd to compete. The ipad pro is a tablet, it doesn't even have a proper desktop os or have usb ports.
Rant over, I'll go sit in the corner now.

The point remains it's still a tablet. It's no more of an AIO than it is a traditional desktop. My work Panasonic Toughpad is still a tablet, however it's thicker than most laptops and more powerful than most tablets too. Therefore, by your suggestion must be a Phablet or a desktop replacement laptop or something else. Just because it's a better specified than is typical of devices in that market doesn't make it somehow transcend into another type of device, at best you can as you correctly called it a premium tablet. I would add my £50 HP Stream windows tablet albeit significantly less powerful still can achieve the USB connectivity and full OS points that you made (with the proviso it's cheap, plasticy woefully down on power and made from less premium parts.

At no point have I suggested the AIO in the picture or that it's not a premium product. I merely pointed out what an AIO is. I recommended the X1 tablet as what I feel a better alternative to the Surface. The reason as I stated is that I personally feel that to get the most out of a Surface or other premium tablet that you should be getting a keyboard accessory to give the flexibility.

P.S. Apple and giving customers useful things like control of their operating system or consistent standards like USB? Please bring whatever you've been drinking/smoking here you heathen!

So this is voted cold because peoples personal opinion on the product is not great ignoring the fact its the cheapest on the market.

Likely a large portion of that HUKD is full of people who expect this to be sold at £199 at Tesco or have never used a premium product and therefore see it as an expensive option. As I have said several times, I prefer the Lenovo X1 tablet myself as it represents in my book better value that you can pick up equivalent spec for about £90 more than this with a 3 year warranty and the keyboard dock. Personally I've not voted as I wish there were 2 heat meters on here one for is this the best deal on this item and one for is this the best deal if you're in the market for this sort of item.

Yup, v expensive. This is a cracking PC though, really nice to use when coupled with the flip cover and dock (not at the same time ;) they both have their uses)

why are these becoming increasingly difficult to purchase? Is there a new model coming out soon?
banned
Out of stock, hard to find these anywhere now, guess they're coming to end of line. Can't wait for the new ones to come out, 7th gen cpu.
I have the i7 model as an upgrade from my Suface Pro Gen 1. It is very fragile though. I saw one in PC World with a cracked screen so it made me very wary of keeping mine very protected.

The home button placement on the keboard is irksome otherwise its a great machine.

The screen resolution is near 4K so reading comics or even just web pages is a joyous experience. Te bezels are a little too big IMO. Speed wise there are no complaints. Video editing is a very swift experience and photos look incredibly detailed too.
This is the current flagship model with the latest Intel processor.
Is this the current model or have they released new 900 revision?

'Operating system provided Windows 7 Pro' - the Windows 10 upgrade bird has flown.
This is a completely different scenario and the bird is still in the coop. :)
It’s a business class PC and comes with as Lenovo state:
“Windows 7 Professional 64 preinstalled through downgrade rights in Windows 10 Pro.”
In effect you have a full license for Win10 Pro and can choose to use the pre-installed Win7 Pro for as long as you like and move to Win10 in the future if you prefer at any time.
This is only available with Windows Pro on certain business PCs and not on consumer PCs with the Home version.
MS have been doing this for years.
Absolutely nothing in either the product summary or tech spec to confirm that.
Look on the Levono site as that's what I was directly quoting from and search for Windows Downgrade rights which is a long term thing.

No need to pretend to have accessibility issues as it comes with a Win10 license and media I presume.
