My 13 year old son is driving me crazy asking for a gaming pc. He's just wanting to play bits of games and record for youtube, chat to his friends. He has a laptop a few years old and it can't be powerful enough as it's lagging when he's playing games/recording. Can anyone recommend anything please? A few of his mates have had them built by people their parents know but I don't know anyone :-(
Tell him to get a paper-run & earn his own crust !!

Or better still tell him to focus his energies on a more worthwhile task like learning another language or how to code rather then aspiring to be just yet another moronic teenage internet celebrity.


​Yea then all those worthwhile activities will help shape him into a more social friendly human like you... Back in your box!
Do we know which model the Corsair PSU is?
DDR5?? It's GDDR5 mate

Yes, there is a caveat for accessibility users - I'm not sure what percentage of the country that would genuinely apply to, I'm thinking a very very small number.

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

No can't add new users as it keeps asking for admin user password. Can't factory reset as it just freezes up on the last step.

I think another person above highlighted that they are cancelling the orders due to a faulty batch. I think these were old tablets and selling them as new!!

thanks for feedback. but is it a massive problem to have 2 previous user accounts? I bought a laptop for my ex wife and it is registered to CEX computer exchange. but so what? I guess with windows 10 it matters for store access? can you not add a new user? would it take up much space having the users ? I guess depends if they have their own apps. I'm surprised you cannot just delete them?

'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.

Ordered one of these with keyboard from gearbest just under 200 and picked standard delivery took 6 days no customs charges, as it was a present could not test but the reviews for this made this the one to purchase.

the keyboard has extra battery in, very good build quality overall will try testing in a week's time after the recipient has received it.
Re my lack of proper charger from Banggood (i7 Book) - they have emailed today saying "sorry we don't have a suitable charger in stock"!! and could I tell them where I could get an alternative, and how much!!

Now I was going to go on TechTablets' forum and update this - but they seem to have blocked my IP address for simply telling the truth! Nothing slanderous, spammy or troll-y. Just a frustrated customer who's made their first purchase seeking some help.

Incredibly heavy handed and a website I read quite regularly too! Astonished!

Edit: Seem to be un-blocked now. Not sure what's going on. Other friends could navigate the site when I was "blocked", not using a VPN or anything.

Looks really good in terms of specs and aesthetics however my main worry with all these gadgets sold directly from China is wether they're clean of any spyware.
​I have a Teclast Windows 10 tablet and it was clean - did a system restore just to be on the safe side, installed a firewall and monitored - no issues.

Doesn't system restore lose the play store? What firewall do you use?


What Play Store on Windows 10?

been reading up about this it requires a dc power adapter to charge, some other tablets can charge via micro usb port.
Tell me about it! I have a Chinese tablet I just bought and it takes either USB C or a prong-style AC Adapter, but it has to be 12V, positive polarity, 2.5A/2500mA. Banggood sent me the wrong charger last week and I'm STILL trying to get a decent response out of them! Was all over town yesterday trying to find a powerful enough charger that fits.
My Linx 10 (which is sold in the UK, of course) takes a prong-style adapter too, so it's not just Chinese tablets (though the Linx is a clone of the Pipo W1 and others).

Found the matching keyboard on Banggood website.http://www.banggood.com/Original-Magnetic-Docking-Rechargeable-Keyboard-For-Teclast-Tbook-10-Tablet-p-1059465.html 347.18 if anyone interested.
Thanks, was struggling to find the keyboard dock - even the TechTablets' reviewer said at the time of his review he found it hard to source. The fact it has an inbuilt battery is great - it's an idea more tablet manufacturers should adopt.
I got one of these for my Linx tablet. Works fine, including in car.https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00J1J0RTA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's a Cube i7 Book adapter I'm looking for. The manufacturer told me to contact Banggood (yep, still waiting), I bought a USB C to USB 3.1 cable but my Power Bank is 5V (I realised later), so no good (this tablet charges by USB C or 12V AC).

Have a prong adapter that fits (in my random bucket of crap - full of cables and chargers!) - the charger light goes on but it only charges at 200mA, but leaving it overnight still left the battery dead :(

Was in Maplin yesterday, even went into mobile phone shops (as it charges by the newer phone charging connector, USB C), hardware stores - had no luck at all.

I managed to break my Linx 10 the other week :( even broke through the glass protector so the digitiser is gimped :( The Linx charger is a bit too thin for the Cube's AC input.

This is the Cube i7 Book adapter from the Cube website (obviously I want a UK one) http://www.cube-tablet.com/media/wysiwyg/Blog/Cube_i7_Book_20.jpg It would help to know even if Cube adapters were interchangeable for their different tablets, but Cube didn't answer my query :(

Edit 16 Aug: Banggood say "we have to contact the supplier" (sigh). Went for this, UK plug, hoping that this Cube i7/i9 adapter (the i9 is one of their most recent releases, before mine) will fit the AC input. Sick of waiting! http://www.aliexpress.com/item//32689241033.html

Interestingly Argos are also selling the black, 4GB RAM version of the refurbished L50-C for £169.99. You can add a 4GB DDR3L SODIMM for around £18, so you can save another £22 if you're prepared to upgrade the RAM yourself. Link is here. I bought one last week for a friend who needed a basic Windows laptop. What I was sent was an L50-C-20G, which had Windows 10 installed, and the slightly faster and newer i3-5005u 2GHz CPU (other specs identical).

First I got of the 4GB models had to go back because of a faulty wireless card (very smooth process with collect+). Second I received was the 20G model with Win 10 too. Very happy that there was a fault on the first.

that's a rip off. £200+ for a dual core i3 refurb. If you search "refurbished laptops" in Google there are about eight better refurb shops with better prices than argos
These 'refurbs' can't be sold as anything else and are (for the most part) customer returns "Ooh I don't like the colour" or "the mouse pad isn't sensitive enough"
Most 'refurbs' that you are talking about the machines have been used and in some instances abused and are properly second hand, then refurbed
I know I got one from a refurber, ex business laptop cost me just over £100
These are a different ball park
You're free (obviously) to vote how you like, but what you're comparing this refurb against those from others really is chalk and cheese

Anyone used Gigarefurb before? One big concern I have with refurb's is battery life. I know my works Dell's suffer after a year or so. Wondering what guarantees they give since so mention specifically of battery's on their site.

ordered one from cex with a slightly better cpu and with 2year warranty for £130 today.
Link??

There are few on CeX website.

A condition with SSD, £145
B condition with SSD, £130 (may be out of stock online)

CeX sell those with HDD at higher prices. It is most likely that their price only considered hard drive size, and ignored the hard drive is SSD or HDD.

So make sure always buy SSD version from CeX, value for money.

Ordered the pink as Blue was out of stock, thanks Reddit
Pink is now out of stock but the Blue is back in stock, needs to be unexpired
Arrived yesterday, not a mark on it so all good, came with windows 8.1, downloaded the windows 10 creation tool from MS site, selected windows 10 32bit, install to a usb pen drive as the local drive does not have the space available for the install.
1. Do not select to do updates on the first screen just skip this part as the comment that mentions about updates stuck for ever is what will happen.
2. Select what to backup and select None wipe all data and apps during the process, this gets rid of all the Acer Bloatware for a fresh windows 10 install.
3. Delete windows.old from c drive to free up 3GB of space guide here
The process took about 1hour downloading and installing and all complete, speed wise this is very good for browsing, netflix, streaming music, not going to be a gaming machine, screen is bright and the Wifi no issues being at the other side of the house with the signal down to 1 to 2 bars.
if you have the space use the below for the upgrade assistantWindows 10 still free from MS Site using this link
Out of curiosity did you have to turn assistive technologies on before performing the update?
No I could not use the upgrade assistant as not enough space on the c drive, so used the windows 10 creation tool and this worked fine, really easy to use, it says it will wipe the data from the pen drive, but it left all my data on and it just added the install for windows 10, just double click the setup.exe on your pen drive and off it goes.
Is it still fully activated even without you using assistive technologies?
Yes fully activated using the guide I posted
Ah right the link just runs an upgrade. And then you don't need to actually have assistive technologies actually switched on?
Yep thats it no need to switch on its the same version so no difference from what you would have got as the general upgrade, MS making it available for for the assistive section as they have made big improvements on the 1 year anniversary update to this section and lots of others.

Yeah all my Windows devices are already on it but I still have an old Windows 8.1 license sat waiting for a future PC build, I knew I could still activate Windows 10 via the assistive technologies method I just thought I would have to be actively using them to qualify and then disable them afterwards. Good to know that's not needed.

The new update has a few handy features. A bit disappointing that the sticky notes app doesn't have the insight feature outside the US and that the Cortana app for Android isn't available outside the US either as I'd quite fancy getting notifications pushed through without a 3rd party Windows app.

My favourite feature though is the Project to this PC feature. If your device supports wireless miracast displays then you can use a cheap tablet like this as a second portable wireless display to go full tech douche bag dual display in the coffee shop.

Is this a good deal? Can you upgrade the HDD? I've got a mac 2008 and it's been upgraded to the hilt but only two hours battery and gets so hot it burns my legs.
You can't upgrade anything on the new MacBooks :( I have a late 2008 MacBook that is in pretty much the same boat as yours.. I removed the disk drive and put in an ssd as my system drive and put a 1tb HDD for storage and I upgraded the ram to 8gig etc.. I get about 3-4 hours without being plugged in :) for me it's not an issue as its no longer used as a 'laptop' and is almost always plugged in and is desked, I have a top line 2015 MBP for 'on the go' but i know how you feel.. If you are looking at these specs and feel you will defo NEED to upgrade them don't bother.. Pay a bit more and get the spec you want :)

Yeah, mine is used when I need it, which I guess isn't that often. It's been dropped, pulled apart, upgraded etc etc and works. Reckon I'll be using it still in 2018... Upgrading is part of the fun. I pay eventually go for a good hackintosh.


It'll definitely still be as good in 2018! There isn't really much difference in performance between the 2008 and the 2015! Obviously if I've got a lot going on in photoshop or Logic Pro then the 2015 inches ahead in performance but in real terms were in not for the battery and overall weight my 2008 MBP is still a beast :)

Its Very though, they wont honour any sort of warranty or help out with any issue, like the you cant return anything thats been plugged in which is against the law but you cant do anything.

Get AppleCare, Apple will sort you out. Some of the best customer service in the industry.

Upgrade the E6230 to Wireless AC and Bluetooth 4/LE with the Intel AC7260 (half-height version). Can be found for a little over £12.

Sounds messy to me. Just buy a NUC like the MSI cubi N from scan .. 2gb ram £3.50 on CEX and you can boot Kodi if that's your purpose .. from a USB or get a cheap HDD for minimal outlay.

just a little feedback on the machine for anyone interested

it runs really well, nice and snappy at browsing, office, you tube etc... build seems really good quality, keyboard is nice to use

only minor nag, and it might be just me, but the mouse is not that nice compared to others i have used, seems u need to really hit the sweet spot for right click and the mouse itself seems a little over responsive even with the mouse settings adjusted

all that said, for £370 I am well happy, thanks again to the OP for a great deal
there was around 100GB
now down to 499, this is the funniest thing i have seen, 3 prices in one day

Out of interest, before you put any of your own files onto the laptop, how much available space was there with just windows 10 installed ?

Yes pretty good for £104.99. Hopefully mine will be better when I do a fresh install of windows 10. I didn't realise what a difference it made until I did it on my Miix 2. It still had the old 8.1 recovery partition and it took a while to get rid of it. It would not let me boot from usb even using Rufus software. In the end I used my recovery drive that I had done following a fresh install of windows 10 on my miix 3. I didn't think it would work but it did and removed the recovery partition. Downloaded the win 8.1 drivers from Lenovo for the miix 2 and I can't tell you what a difference it makes. Someone is going to be a happy bunny on ebay pretty soon when I put it up for sale. Looks like Lenovo recovery drives can be used from laptop to tablet and vice versa.
not bad at all for a quad core
Just booted it up and checked PC info. 4gb ram, 500gb Hard drive and N3540 quad core processor with benchmark pass of 1965. BONUS........

Wow, that's a good spec for £104.99. Now just need windows 10 and an SSD. My only complaint about this and every other small screen laptop is the big bezel around the screen. Only a small complaint and the lower resolution screen to my Miix 3 is actually better for the menus as the font is larger. Windows 8 icons look awful but windows 10 is downloading this very minute.

Seeing as it has the 1366 x 768 resolution which a lot of people moan isn't good enough, including myself, It's actually pretty damn good at this screen size. A good test for me is Katy Perry's Road on Youtube but I reckon she looks good in any resolution.

Thanks to Ginger Bread Cat for posting.

I got a Pentium N2840, 4GB Rám and 500Gb hard drive. Seems like a bit of a lottery.

I got that too. Arrived on Monday but I been on holiday this week so just opened it today. N2840, 4gb ram and 500gb hard drive is what it says on the box. Not checked its actual spec as not switched it on. I was quite impressed with the quality for refurbished. Just one tiny scratch on the lid about 4mm long and as thin as a hair and a little dent about the size of ball point pen tip next to the trackpad. Quite impressed by the spec for the money. The benchmark pass mark is actually better than my Lenovo Miix 3 and I find that pretty good for the money so we will see. Not sure how a dual core with higher pass mark will be better than a quad core with lower benchmark but we will soon find out.

Sorry for doubting you guys who said you got a better model than posted. I did think a couple of you were winding us up.
Got mine, thanks OP. Mine is also 4GB RAM with 500 HD. Good condition. Battery is one issue, first two times, turned off at just less than 50%, now lasts about 2.5 hours after few charges, which is still good enough for money.
Screen is not very good, but then again, it is for kids homework, and good value for money.

Just recieved one of these today, and very impressed with this little thing, almost looks like a miniature macbook air. Remove some of the uneeded bloatware, install start menu 8 or similar, bloack windows 10 update with GWX control panel and your good to go. I am glad there are still Netbook type devices as they are far superior to a tablet for any proper task and far handier than a 15inch laptop. :)
What is the battery life like? I have a lenovo 100s and battery on that is phenomenal >6 hrs when I'm browsing and a bit if YouTube.

I am not sure of the battery life as it was a gift for my dad, however I expect it is very good as I have a dell inspiron with the older Celeron 2.16ghz 2830 and that has a 500GB HDD , 15.6 inch screen and I get around 4-5 hours and it is a few years old now. So I expect 6 hours is possible, though it is a very slim design so might be a bit less. Still phenomenally good value for money and pretty snappy performance, and excellent speakers considering the size. Looks far more expensive than £80.

I have 512gb you peasant. And many leather bound books.
As if people buying this are worried about the hdmi 2 - how did we manage to watch tv on a crt ?
Surely if you want stability you just buy a cheap S805/S905-based device and run OpenElec (Linux) on it?

Running something like this as an appliance is far more reliable than any general purpose OS like Android or Windows.

Another Update:

This laptop has a problem with buzzing sounds appearing from the left side of the laptop (near the charger port).
The buzzing appears only when scrolling up and down and also when pressing the up & down keys.

A quick Google shows that similar machines (not just ASUS) have this issue around the charger area and is described as a "squeal" by some.

For me, the buzzing issue is not too bad as I'm always in a loud environment or have my music on. But if your prefer silence then this sound will distract you
Hi,

I find nothing wrong with the CPU but I do not really do high demand activities so it will depend on what you are wanting if for.

I'm not sure about uninstalling the Windows 10 question but I don't see why you would want to as the OS is quite good I find.

Would be interested to know what was wrong with the laptop for SD1266 to return it. On paper the specs are good and I'm tempted to buy one.
.
I bought this laptop
I like it.
Touchpad is good and not cheap style like most lenovo laptops have.
The screen is nice but the viewing angle may annoy some as already mentioned above, however I find that adjusting the lid position is enough to improve the view.

Battery life is about 3 hours on moderate usage

Laptop wire is quite thin and short compared to other wires.

Yes but that's a desktop 960. The 960M in this is nowhere near the same performance.
Did not know that. Thanks for the info. I think the 970m adds atleast £100 to the price so still happy with my purchase just slightly less happy now. Hopefully the display will be good. Dell normally do good displays.

Yes, laptop graphics cards are always much less powerful as laptops cannot realistically produce the power to run then or get rid of the heat they produce. I'm pretty sure your desktop 960 would still be more powerful than the laptop 970. It's going to be a big step down.

I'm looking forward to the new 10 series chipset coming for laptops as they are the same chips as in full desktop machines but clocked lower for heat reasons.
The 960m is around the same speed/performance as a desktop 750ti. It does OK at 1080p with a few adjusted settings but anything gpu intensive at 4k is going to be a no go.....

Wanted to get one of these but missed out on the scan offer unfortunately, however, got a question.. I want to use it to record a security camera (using YawCam) and separate stereo audio. I imagine it should have enough grunt to do simple motion detection and recording in Windows 7 but what about the audio. The mic input cannot be used at the same time as the headphones but will it record stereo (line-in) or is it only mono?

One other thing.. if I wanted to dual boot between Windows and Linux would this be possible?

Secure boot and Windows 8 logo thing you need to disable. I had a load of trouble installing Windows 7, just wanted to upgrade to Windows 10. Windows 7 doesn't support skylake USB 3 ports or something, my USB 1/2 standard keyboard and mouse wouldn't work. After much messing about the solution was to use a Asrock utility that injects USB 3 drivers into the Windows Install, http://www.asrock.com/microsite/win7install/ the Intel one kept crashing on me, but this Asrock (Win 7 USB Patcher) one works.

Secure boot and Windows 8 logo thing you need to disable. I had a load of trouble installing Windows 7, just wanted to upgrade to Windows 10. Windows 7 doesn't support skylake USB 3 ports or something, my USB 1/2 standard keyboard and mouse wouldn't work. After much messing about the solution was to use a Asrock utility that injects USB 3 drivers into the Windows Install, http://www.asrock.com/microsite/win7install/ the Intel one kept crashing on me, but this Asrock (Win 7 USB Patcher) one works.

I can't get it to boot from USB, anyone else? Its windows 7, maybe thats the issue.....

My old acer has just died, so looking for a possible new laptop (at the right price).
The i5 one has gone up as mentioned, but they have the same machine with the i3-5005U processor (same RAM and SSD) for £269.97http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/T6P52EAABU-HP-250-G4_1876388.html
Worth it for £60 less than the i5? (at current prices)
Will use it for general internet, and maybe AutoCAD/Revit software for work.
That's £249 at Tesco Direct

Cheers for the heads up, hadn't looked on there.

Not a huge performance jump between the I3 and i5 options with this laptop. Both would handle Revit just about

Web link says 4th gen i7 so 4000 series so definitely quad core however intel do make some ultra low power variants.

Usb wise theres 2x usb 3.0 on the front and 2x usb 2.0 on the back from the images on the link.
Very sparse information on what i7 it is and whether there is gigabit LAN.

Many new NUC's at the lower end now come with 4 USB 3 ports, so to see 2 of them at USB 2.0 is rather disappointing.

Check the full specs before buying to ensure that the reasonable price matches what is in the unit,
can i ask what you plan to use this for??
Looks good , no way I would chance £300 with any Chinese seller though, hot otherwise

Just bought the last one. No more available.

I had one of these when they first came out.

great bit of kit, but I sold mine a few weeks after due to it not being used.

If you throw to much at it, it would crash. If you threw to little at it, it would crash.

Most of the time it ended up getting sluggish quickly or resetting.

The concept was great, and performed well with games. But outside that it was a bit meh.



Just sounds like you had a fault model if it was crashing.


​Better buy Nvidia shield Android Marshmallow tablet than this piece of crap to play games.

There may be a problem with this deal

The last cash back deal for the T20 included the 3220 cpu model, but if you check the list of qualifying models for the current cash back deal it ONLY lists the 1225 quad core version as qualifying

So its best to check with dell before purchasing regardless of what the wholesaler claims
Great bit of kit, but if you want remote management (AMT), do not buy the Pentium T20. Even if you swap out the processor for one supporting vPro (E.g Xeon), AMT will not work – it has been factory disabled.

How would a server work at home/for home office rather than I standard PC? Sorry - just wondered how I could utilise this to good effect? Thanks.
I'm running mine (nb. the better "Xeon" version) on Windows 10 and it's a beauty. Got W10 and Office off eBay for low cost and a couple of slim monitors, an SSD and a HDD too, now have a fast, powerful and capacious desktop PC system for just a few hundred quid. Not at all difficult to set up. Very happy.

@zela333. you are incorrect. There will be a noticeable difference between i3 and i7 in all aspects as well as speed.




Not if we are talking about the U low power Intel processor line. Yea if you are talking about the actual quad core M series but they are a lot more expensive and use more power

A word of caution. I built a similar combo with a 750ti for my stepson, and although it has sufficient power for moderate gaming there are a number of newer games that demand more than 2 cores. The G3258 is a remarkable cpu for the price, but is not really a good cpu for gaming.
Good combo, but average price
Save a tenner by buying the parts individually: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/MCqmt6

I Have previously paired an NVidia 750TI With this processor which was a good match however I suspect if you hold out you might get a bargain on a GTX960 in a few weeks for around £100

p.s. that bundle isn't exactly amazing when you consider picking you own skylake based 1151 intel motherboard, i3 processor and ram - this would be around 50% faster and would be around £50 more



Cheers

I was more referring to the CPU here rather than the bundle in its entirety - to me the bundle doesn't seem a great deal because you would need to add a CPU cooler on top for an overclock right? This bundle just has the stock cooler.

As for your comparison of speed. After the overclock, wouldn't the i3 and this be pretty similar in terms of in-game performance looking at tests: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/pentium-g3258-overclocking-performance,review-32974-4.html

Or are these outdated now?

I tired that one, couldnt get shipping with it.

so happy with my ge62 970m holding its value
bought it at currys in last year for 1200
happy hukd can't offer a better deal 7 months later

What an odd thing to be happy about? Did you buy it as an investment?

Anyway, quick google reveals this as the first shopping link.

​Lol, that will be a looooooong wait. Zen will be probably at best comparable with Haswell. It will certainly come nowhere close to the Intel Core i7 6950X.

Seems pricey for an i5 even if it's cheap compared to others when did i5 go over 200 notes?

It did go over since the Brexit craze and has been increasing non-stop! (No comment on that!!)
