Decent price, but if you don't need windows that Amazon Chromebook deal might be a better buy.
The Amazon Chromebook is a much better deal for sure, until you realise that you have to use your Google account password each time to login, which is all well and good if your password is 1234 but in my case and anyone in their right mind who relies on their Google account for almost anything I've set it to be as long and complex as possible.
It's ridiculous they wont let you set up a PIN number like on phones to unlock it.

That's a feature that is coming - it's experimental at the moment.

You can now unlock your Chromebook with a PIN
These used to be around £100, price seems to have gone up. Check out the lenovo 100s which is a similar machine but better screen, build quality.

Personally, I wouldn't buy a Windows 8 machine now the free windows 10 upgrade has ended.

You can still get a free windows 10 upgrade here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade
Is this old Windows 8 stock clearance or a newer Windows 10 machine?
If it's Windows 10, I guess this is a OK price for what's essentially a low end Chromebook competitor.
If it's Windows 8, I think there are better Windows 8 clearance deals. E.g. this metal bodied, 64GB, full HD touchscreen 2 in 1 ASUS.

Personally, I wouldn't buy a Windows 8 machine now the free windows 10 upgrade has ended. No matter how much unsaleable Windows 8 stock companies have left to clear cheaply from their shelves.

This may possibly be a nationwide deal, as I saw this deal in the Clitheroe branch of Sainsbury's yesterday.

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.

Sorry but this is only going to be cold from me, just looking at one alternative supplier and even on like for like specs you're looking at up to £300 less cash.http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/optimusVII-15/ - under £900 for the same specifications as this XPS.http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/defianceIII-15/ - £80 more getting you identical spec + fingerprint reader + a GTX1060 which is a whole heap faster than the 900 series.http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/optimusVII-Pro-15/ - For £25 more than this deal you can get this option with;
Double the ram
A second battery
Same capacity SSD
Second mechanical hard drive for long term storage
Bluray writer
Fingerprint reader
Backlit keyboard
Slightly faster 965M graphic
otherwise spec for spec matching
While I accept the XPS is trying to push high performance in a small package, my experience with Dell is the thing will be noisy and unpleasant to use due to heat. Reviews seem to suggest much the same with the Dell being louder in most testing than equivalent laptops, and also hotter too. Low 50's under gaming and under heavy load into the 60°C+ region at the centre of the keyboard which is not by any means comfortable temperatures to be working with (that figure in my experience is the point where a laptop starts to become painful to use).
I had an XPS and while I loved the machine, it was a pig to game on as you had to use an external keyboard and mouse (kind of defeats the purpose of buying a laptop in the first place) and then also use headphones to get away from the jet engine exhaust fans.
As I've said, there are loads of other bespoke suppliers out there and I've not even tried to check them for better deals, but I'm sure a short look around will find more than the 3 better alternatives I've managed to find in the course of 5 minutes.
​Lol, coming up with a brick laptop custom build. It's not all about specs, aesthetics, weight, sleekness. Design matters more for some, obviously not you. So don't be ready to shun others.

Will go cold sadly as most on HUKD don't get ultrabooks. Macbook Pro's always go cold as well...I think it's probably because most people don't actually carry there laptops any further than the Sofa to the table.
Comparing a PC specialist or any other Clevo is laughable but is the norm on here...

Again not really trying here, however, the rest of the community will leave you to your overpriced Dells.

Other than the GL552 (which is in no way an Ultrabook weighing in at 2.6Kgs) there are actually some good alternatives there.

The thing with Ultrabooks that you missed with your first post with the Pc Specialist offerings is that it's not just down to spec and price. In the Ultrabook world build quality, weight and battery life are prime considerations.

I work as a consultant for a Global IT company...I have to cart my laptop all over the place..I could have a top of the range monster i7 17" beast of a laptop but they weigh a ton, I sacrifice some performance for a smaller machine with enough performance to do what I need to do, a decent battery life and it looks nice in front of clients (that last point is actually very important believe it or not when you work for an IT Company)

If I could I'd use nothing but my Macbook pro but sadly as that's made by a competitor even running a Windows VM on the Mac isn't an option so I'm saddled with a windows laptop...So I carry around a decent mid spec 15" Ultrabook. (and no I'm not an Apple fanboy...I support windows and ESX servers for a living)

Received mine today and its already wrapped up for return. As said many many times before even here I could not get mine to run longer than 10 mins without bsod. All drivers fully updated from dell support. Unusable. Its sad as the machine looks amazing and the so is the spec but when its brand new and duff why should you spend valuable time trying to diagnose what driver is an issue. It wasn't even the broadcom wifi adapter that is documented as the most common fault as mine had an intel. Gutted :-(


​How odd I've sent two back for this exact reason! First one within 24 hours and second within 48.

I would prefer this more if the screen was atleast 17.3".....
I guess it's down to personal preference, 15.6" is more used and has a higher pixel density than 17.3" at the same resolution

I'd wait for the 1060m, more than enough for any game at @1080p, pointless going for anything quicker unless you plug in to an external monitor(s) in which case get a desktop.

Is the 940mx much better than the HD520 on the CPU? I heard with the onboard graphics getting so good these days that the low end nvidia offerings rarely make sense any more.
tomloaf
I am no really confused about which is a better laptop. This one or the i7 lenovo at currys. oO

Is the 940mx much better than the HD520 on the CPU? I heard with the onboard graphics getting so good these days that the low end nvidia offerings rarely make sense any more.

Yes, heats up faster than a standard radiator too.
Looks like this is the standard launch price - 2p difference on scan.co.uk :

Considering you can get a 970m laptop for £1k less I don't see the value...
not even 1/3 of the gpu power if I am not wrong
Correct but not £900 ish of graphics worth...
these laptops at £1000, were@ £1500 or more 2 years ago. In the next 2 years and next gpu version, we will be here mentioning the exactly same thing. I personally consider the newer one a bargain proportionally to the price it was when the gtx970m came out. Saying so, I am not a laptop gaming man and obviously I would spend that money on a super desktop pc instead.


​agreed would be better as a desktop cheaper ect but someone who travels and like to game i can see these selling to that group

Well mines arrived under 24Hrs which i think is pretty good. Hope my daughter appreciates it!
Dragon2611 how easy was the SSD install?
I think there was a video on youtube somewhere, essentially remove all the screws at the bottom then use a pry tool or some such to pry the bottom off (I used a screwdriver which isn't the best way as it did leave a small scratch, once you've got the first few clips to release you should be able to pull it off fairly easily) then gently remove the ribbon across the battery to the back of the HDD caddy (it's stuck down and quite delicate so you'll have to be careful)
Then you'll need to detach the battery as it's covering a screw to the HDD bay.
There a couple of screws for the HDD thats covered by one of the speaker cables but there's enough slack to just move that to one side, just be careful when putting it back in not to catch it in the screw/crush it.
Other than being careful around the ribbon cable and battery and there being quite a lot of screws it's pretty straight forward.
Cheers, i'll see how she gets on with the standard drive. did you upgrade the bios ?
Yeh I did, and the intel drivers (although I'd used a clean install of windows without all the HP stuff)
Only thing I've found with the Wi-Fi card is my bluetooth mouse doesn't work very well when there's a lot of Wi-Fi traffic, probably due to it being a 1x1:1 combo card.
Will have a go with Bios and intel drivers at the weakened then.

newer first gen i5, equal ram, better screen resolution, 12 inch and much lighter, 1 year warranty.

Both of those options are much newer, faster by a good margin and represent much better value for money.

Ebay confirms that this is a non deal as the only ones of these to sell do so at around the £40 mark for identical spec.

I seriously doubt the gpu on this has Windows 10 drivers, I've an AM2+ system with a 790GX chipset which is more current than this that didn't have proper Windows 10 drivers so it will be on some generic video driver.

this or the surface pro??

This doesn't detach from the keyboard so it's never going to do the tablet trick as well as a surface device, but then back in it's favour, as good as the type cover is for the surface, it's just not quite like having a real sturdy laptop keyboard especially if you ever use it on your lap.

But as a tablet device the 3:2 aspect of a surface is much better than a 16:9 slab. I've got a Dell Venue 11 which does fully detach, but I rarely use it like that because 16:9 just isn't great as a portrait held tablet. Even the slight step to 16:10 is much better but with a 3:2 aspect the surface is perfect. Also this doesn't have the level of stylus support the surface has.

This is however a massive chunk cheaper than a surface even close to it in specs. I love the surface devices, and I do believe the build is worth the price premium, but with my own money I just wouldn't take the plunge when devices like this are available.

Can't say I can find a better deal for a similar spec with an i5 8GB RAM and an integrated (albeit not much improved) graphics card, it's a good price. Personally for a laptop I'd go for an i3, saves you some cash, gives better battery life and you won't see any performance drop for standard laptop duties, like internet, film/music playing and office suite software, whilst still being portable. Having 8GB will make Windows a lot more perky, where as 4GB is really pushing it and hard disk space is always useful. What this, or any laptop without spending at least £800, be is a decent games computer, but then cheaper to buy a console for that probably, if they don't already have one.

You have to look as listings appear regularly. I purchased a 17.3" version on auction at less than £310 delivered (with a VAT invoice - a deal breaker for me as I can reclaim VAT) and it came with HP warranty. The only issue was I had to chat with Microsoft to reinstall Windows 10. There was also a 30 day returns policy. Ebay is now seller beware.

I had this laptop last year, don't be fooled by the "NVIDIA GeForce 940M 2GB!" in the title, it is a truly awful GPU and performs worse than my desktop Skylake on-chip GPU.
Hard drive is incredibly slow and the laptop in general doesn't perform the same as it looks on paper with the specs it has. I don't recommend spending £450 on this. If you're going to be buying a laptop, save a little bit more and get a £500-600+ one.
The aesthetics of the laptop is beautiful though, even as a non Star Wars fan.

Exactly the same issues that I had. The HDD was terrible.

I suspect that a few more GTX 900 series equipped laptops will head into the clearance sale now that the news on the specifications for the Pascal mobility lineup have been released.

Isn't it the case that if an SSD fails you have Zero chance to recover any files, whereas with a HDD at least you can recover files from the non corrupt sectors?

Lol you got that completely the wrong way round.

If your standard mechanical drive fails you are pretty much stuffed unless you get lucky or can afford to send it off to a data recovery lab

In most cases and all the cases I have worked with a failed ssd will become almost read only as in you can pull the files off and that's about it.... Which is what you want

Looks a good deal to me with the 10% off - just a pity about that mechanical disk.
Buy an enclosure and ssd, connect to laptop, clone drive, install ssd, put HDD in enclosure, format hdd, use HDD as external hard drive (for pc/mac/Xbox/whatever else)
You could yes - but computers (especially at this price) should be coming with an SSD as standard these days.
They're still not popular enough to completely replace hdd because of the price. Those that are very computer literate would see a 1TB HDD way better value than a 256GB SSD because it's more.
When the price difference becomes more even, then it will be in most laptops as standard.
Which is more important then getting one with a SSD or higher processor. I thought the processor. Also is the trade in at curry’s a good deal as I can get £125 for my old laptop which makes this deal for me. Anywhere else advisable to get money for the old beast 15 acer aspire.
Depends on what you're using it for:

light use (browsing, multimedia) = get a lesser processor and as much storage as you need (which may not be that much)

Gaming = at least i5 + dedicated gpu (not 920m-940m though) and enough storage for all files and games. (ssd for fast load times)

Video editing = ssd for cache, quad core Intel, enough storage for all video files

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.

Just got order confirmation, but order tracking details not accepted on their Web site!! Build date first week in September supposedly.
Tracking information? They will have to build your notebook first ;), when it's been shipped, tracking information will work. It took 6 days for mine to get shipped.

I said order tracking, not shipping tracking and I ordered the laptop in this deal, not a notebook (_;)

I ordered the with backlit KB & finger print scanner, total price was £321.84 thank you OP
Did you get you order confirmation, beside of your acknowledgement? Pls let us know.


Hi, yes just got confirmation of order.
I did my first order on Saturday morning. Contacted Dell on Monday to say that I hadn't received my order confirmation yet. They said that it hadn't gone through cause of a problem with their system and that I should try again. I ordered again on Monday night and then checked with them again on Tuesday lunchtime as I still hadn't received confirmation for the 2nd order. They told me that it was out of stock and it wouldn't go through.

This evening I decided to change the configuration slightly tonight with a new order. Haven't received the confirmation for that one.

Then about an hour ago I get 2 emails saying ordered confirmed for the first two laptops. Grrrr. So annoyed will have some cancelling to do in the morning

To anyone who has bought one of these these have you tried a usb 3 stick in it. I have the t300chi and suspect the usb3 is not usb 3 at all. I have tried mine with a sandisk ultra and toshiba portable drive with both set to fast performance in properties and the transfer speed is very slow. I will have to download a programme to check but running the same file transfer on my wife's old Acer is far quicker. Just checked mine and it took about 3 minutes to transfer a 1gb file which is a bit slow for usb 3 speeds.

On the good side I have finally done a clean install of windows 10. That includes deleting the original partitions and everything that Asus put on. Windows media creation tool wouldn't let me do that on the T300 and I could not change the boot order in the bios to boot the windows 10 iso file from usb because usb boot was not there. I used the 'Rufus' software to create a bootable usb drive using the windows 10 iso file and I could then run that file from the settings and recovery menu. Seems very zippy to how it was.

Still tempted to get one of these. For people who have one, does it have automatic switching between tablet and laptop mode when you attach the keyboard? (i.e. when keyboard is docked, does Windows disable tablet mode and screen rotation)?
No. Not possible as the keyboard is always 'attached' via Bluetooth (unless you switch it off). My Surface devices didn't do this either - at least not reliably.

Thanks, I ordered one anyway yesterday (should come tomorrow). I already have the similar Lenovo Miix 300, but that only has 32Gb of onboard storage, which is limiting. 64Gb (with another 64Gb MicroSD card) will be perfect for what I need. This was too good a deal to miss out on, and my 6 year old will be getting the Lenovo to play with :)

Good to hear it comes with a stylus, and also that you managed to update to Windows 10 with no issues. I plan to do the same, as my Lenovo is running 10, and the Anniversary update was a big improvement.

I wrote a Windows service for the Lenovo that did the automatic tablet/laptop mode switching based on it detecting the attachment (and disconnection) of the keyboard dock. So I might look at the feasibility of doing the same here.

Yes. The screen makes it better than the others. BT Keyboard is NOT a problem, battery in it lasts for weeks. Lack of full size USB ports is easily overcome with adaptor cables. The benefits outweigh the downsides.

VERY different! I only just noticed that the 103 is running Android 4.4 vs Win 10 on the 100 Chi.

Hardware wise the Chi has a better screen, four times the storage, slightly faster CPU, and USB 3.0 (admittedly micro).

Not surprised the CHI is now at £129.99. It doesn't have a full USB port, and the CHI requires the tablet AND the keyboard to be charged separately, and the keyboard is linked to the tablet via Bluetooth, which can be problematic!

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.

No Bloatware ? wrong it has windows on it with bloatware built in plus you will be a windows beta tester for MS (The latest update has killed lots of users kit and needed a full install and lost of data to fix so with windows you really must have backups.

For the same money and limited usage of this a good android tablet or chromebook would be a good alternative.

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.

Reduced to clear ? Well they must have changed their mind and got some more in at £999.97 ?
Pascal architecture will provide a significant leap in teraflops, the jump will be noticeable in performance.

This is good value for the specifications listed as the new laptops will be double the price at launch.

If you want to save more money, you are better off going for micro-ATX or a mini-ITX cube case. You can upgrade with every generation and it will provide much better cooling options.

They may have just wanted to use up old stock. They would have been better off just throwing these processors in the skip and charging us an extra 20 or 30 quid for a better one. Quite strange to see they do an identical model running an i3 which is what they should have stuck with. Not good seeing the intel atom were out also at this point which are far better. I got one of the refurb Lenovo 300's from Argos. Opened it today and nice to see it has 4gb ram, 500gb hard drive and an older dual core atom processor but it offers great value at £104.99. Not switched it on yet but that's what it says on the box.
I got as far as putting this in the basket and heading for the checkout. Then I decided to be sensible and check the reviews. What a shocker. Why on earth did they put such a duff cpu in what might have been an ok laptop for home use (Theres no way most people would carry around a 13.3 tablet) Anyways it sounds like this is nigh on unuseable for anything bar slowwwwww browsing.
YepYep
The main question is: WHY THE HELL somebody build a laptop or PC or anything using 4GB RAM and just 1GHz CPU??? Anyone would simply save a bit on the RAM and add the money to the processor. Don't the Toshiba experts, designing the laptop (and getting a massive **** for this kind of job) know what they doing?
It's designed to hit a spec at a price point - detachable, touch, 1.5Ghz, 4GB, 500GB.
Even when introduced, reviewers found it slow - review here
Remarkably it was offered at £529 but that was years ago.
Sadly, most buyers won't realise it is slow as a dog until they've used it a bit, then most won't be bothered to return it.
This is one of Toshiba's duds - avoid.
To get a usable convertible, pay more for e.g. Asus T100, which can sometimes be had for less than £200
For this money, look at an Asus X205TA laptop (not fast, but adequate and super light), or a Linx tablet which is cheaper.


Edited By: Hootwo on Aug 12, 2016 10:01
Laptop Outlet have sold some of these and confirms the processor as I first stated as the AMD A4-1200 APU which as someone else pointed out is only a 1GHz processor dual core. I think my second Packard Bell bought more than 10 years ago had one that speed lol.

I know Toshiba don't make their own tv's anymore under a certain size. No doubt made by Vestel. Just wondered who makes their laptops
BigYoSpeck
Smartguy1
Having a google of the EAN brought this up on PC World Business site.https://www.pcworldbusiness.co.uk/catalogue/item/N072791W
It listed the processor as AMD A4-1200 APU. Checking that processor on benchmark gave it a pass mark value of a lowly 639. My little atom processor in my Miix 3 is much higher. How this performs with 4gb ram compared with 2gb ram on my Miix 3 I have no idea but providing the ram isn't been maxed on the Miix 3 then I would have thought the Miix will be faster in general surfing and accessing programs. http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+A4-1200+APU
That being the case then the Argos specifications are wrong as the A4 1200 is a 1ghz cpu and considerably slower than an Atom. I wouldn't bother with it if it is because even with 4gb of ram it's going to slow to a crawl doing anything that memory intensive.

On the Argos site though it lists the processor as being quad core and someone even asked a question about it on the Argos Q & A section and reply was quad core. Argos are well know to get product information wrong probably because their marketing department doesn't have a product to check or have no idea that Toshiba made PC's and only made tv's lol. They really need people who understand what the product is, what it does and have the knowledge to check what even the manufacturer has said because sometimes they get it wrong too.

I would rather believe PC World's description of the Toshiba which tallies with the tech report from Notebookcheck. Argos need to be really careful because it could be classed as miss-selling and their descriptions always seem to state a higher spec for a lower model.

2 Year Warranty too, BUT I would not buy it due to insufficient RAM, a slow Celeron processor (906 points on http://www.cpubenchmark.net) and reviews on the website saying it is slow.
So what? Your comment is stupid. Many people, like me, just use it for web browsing, etc. Even a ten-year old laptop will do that quite easily.

Agreed you only need 2GB for web browsing BUT Who said i want to use it for just web browsing? i've got a phablet for that as seldom need a proper keyboard for that.
seems like the HP computer from the sainsburys deal which was selling for £99 albeit without the mechanical HDD in this one. Seems hugely overpriced in comparison to that deal.

Why? 2Gb is fine for what a machine like this is for. Why do you people think that a basic specified laptop needs loads of extra money spent on it? Wake up and get real. This is a basic web surfing laptop. No more, no less!
Because Windows 10 uses so much for starters? I have 6GB RAM and over half is currently in use despite just having this website and an email program open. The reviewers on the Costco website complain the laptop is slow. Far better to go for a 4GB+ machine with a faster processor for a few quid more.
Rubbish.

Nice deal for a brand new machine. I would probably upgrade the memory though as home 64 with only 2Gb is a bit lacking..
2Gb of random is sufficient.

better gift a 11" 2-in-1 laptop for old aged mom. she would be more happy. believe me . At old age, a 15.6 inch laptop is not something a old aged person would like to hold on hands / lap .

I would be looking to buy a cheap windows XP off eBay that meets the criteria in HP T&Cs
https://tradeuptohp.com/gb/en/pages/tradein/terms

buy an old XP for £30ish then send it to HP for £200 cashback
So what are people buying to trade in against this? Is there anything cheap that we should be on the lookout for?

I had a try on one of these in a shop on Sunday and found the keyboard horrible - very bouncy and with enormous flex in the body. Of course this may have been because it's a shop laptop so people come and pound on the keyboard all the time but something to be aware of. I'm a heavy laptop user and need a good keyboard so I personally wouldn't buy one without a test first if at all possible.
After something similar but I find a 13" screen a bit too small. I was looking at this one Yoga 710
I bought the i7 version for my other half, it started off life quite well however the only problem is that if you tilt the screen past 90 degrees (e.g. everytime you actually use it on your lap), the underside of the screen covers the air cooling vent, which causes the laptop to overheat within minutes. Really poorly designed.

good specs but small screen. just 12.5"



Perfect portable size
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.
The same place that puts the price up once an item gets 'deal' status. Smells dodgy to me.

Great specs. Only thing, I have had mixed experiences with Dell.

I think this is a good price if you just want a laptop for browsing, i7 is a little outdated now but should still run chrome / other tasks very well. 768p screen but hey, still good for the price.

I have an i3 & it flies. i7? Maybe I'll upgrade to that in a few years time

I take it you're 'just browsing with Chrome' Sir? LOL these kids...
Agreed, a great little lappy. Bought the i7 last year (refubished) with an SSD and works very well, solid and performs well indeed. It does run very hot though as does my i5 one I also run for work. Very solid and able to handle a few knocks. I paid about £130 if I remember at the time last year.

I bought the i5 version a while back and with an SSD it is a great laptop. Port replicator was £6 from eBay and transforms it into a useful desktop machine. It can get a bit noisy when giving it something that keeps the processors busy.
"i7 is a little outdated now but should still run chrome / other tasks very well."

Hilarious, well done OP, most obvious statement of the century done to perfection.
