Lenovo Moto Z(XT1650-05) 4G Phablet - 64GB £360.75 @ GearBest

4
Very cheap price for this phone, the phone is retailing for around £480 elsewhere, this is on flash sale and is the unlocked dual sim Chinese version so you'll need to install the play store.

Good find Does this work on all in 4G bands for UK ?

Edited By: nav157 on Jan 16, 2017 13:05: Change
Great price but doesn't come with Google services according to the Q&A. Shame really. A quick search on the xda website seems to indicate there's no way of installing the Playstore and Google services.
Good deal,good phone.
This works out cheaper than the Moto Z play edition they also sell on Gearbest. I'm having a hard time resisting buy!!

What is really annoying though is the complete lack of accessories - how hard is it for companies to take on an official launch partner to line up some basic accessories. It's win-win for both companies.
I ordered some crappy bits from Amazon, but they look horrible quality. Until I get a case though it's staying in the house, this hitting the ground would make a mess of it I think!If anybody discovers a nice case for this, or any other phone that fits well enough to last a month or two, then please speak up. I saw the iP6 posts but a particular model recommendation would be useful.

It depends what you want it for. If you want it mostly for 3D gaming then this one. Otherwise definitely the i5
Value for money. simples. Have some heat.

Common problem with AMD chips is overheating.


Agreed. My laptop overheats so much that it affects my sound card. And that's an AMD chipset. Would go Intel all day everyday from now on.
16gb ram seems a bit much on a device like this?

interested to know why cold?

Originally, this deal was posted twice
QuirkyKuboid
Ordered, thanks OP! I really don't understand why this is cold. Great spec machine for the price including the John Lewis guarantee. I would much prefer greater storage capacity over the speed advantage of an SSD, and according to the website the optical drive supports blu-ray discs which seems to be quite hard to find in a laptop (the ones I've looked at anyway).
Hope I don't offend anyone, but it's quite annoying to see the laptop deal threads littered with comments (and presumably voted cold) such as "not full hd", "no ssd" or "you can get better for the price" with no supporting information as to where one can purchase the better deal (because the deal no longer exists). The trend for prices is surely upwards with the expected rise in inflation, so I doubt the amazing deals of the past are likely to be repeated any time soon.
By all means, leave a comment if a laptop is lacking in some way, but (IMO) a deal shouldn't be voted cold if the price point doesn't warrant it. The important thing is that people know what they are buying and they can make their own decision over whether they need the extra / missing features or not.

Well said.

The link takes you to Amazon where it says "5 new from £495.95", but following that link the cheapest is £541.98 + Del and the dearest is £595.99 + Del. So where did you get £449.95 from??????????

It was from the same website, but when the stock is all gone Amazon pull their price off. Sometimes the price will stay listed but says something like you can order it at that price and they will deliver whenever they get more in. If you want to go get it from johnlewis you get it at this price too but with a 3 year warranty.

I have a couple of Commodore 64's in the loft if anybody is looking for a similar machine? :p
​Genuinely interested if it's not a joke :D

No Joke. I had a wee look the other day. One of them has the "slimline keyboard". Think it has the box as well...I'll sort it out and list it on here and send you a link :)

Agree on the 840 G1 though, great great machine, If a little pricey for the spec. I've had one as a work laptop for the last 3yrs now, probably the best work laptop I've ever had (and I've been through a lot in the last 20yrs)

Especially considering it's only about 1.6KG. The two negatives I can think of is the limited hinge (think it's about 120-130° vs 180° for ThinkPads), and the M.2 slot being 2242. The latter is particularly disappointing if you look at the ~60mm space:
http://psg.i.lithium.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/127891i444FB0F0D992DF65/image-size/original?v=v2&px=-1
The fixed it for the G2+ but still only 2260 AFAIK.
The equivalent ThinkPad would be the T440s which doesn't have a service door and bizarrely only one SoDIMM slot + 4GB soldered (the T430s had two slots). While once past 4GB it is dual-channel, the max 12GB is asymmetric dual-channel: unsure if that affects iGPU performance but I call that decision bizarre since the biggest difference between Haswell and Ivy Bridge is the iGPU but it really needs dual-channel. This is not an issue for the T440p but then it's not 1.6KG either!

Dell E6420....Same CPU Gen as these, loads on eBay around this price and build quality way better than the T420...
throw in an SSD and they fly.
Are you sure?
The only Latitude I used recently was an E6430s and I found it way worse quality than a ThinkPad T series. The whole bottom comes of as one piece like cheap consumer laptops although it is manganese not plastic - still felt a lot worse than a Thinkpad and didn't gain anything unlike the EliteBook's tool-less service hatch.
Apparently, when buying new Dell is good because - allegedly - they consider the screen to be a CRU/FRU and won't invalidate the warranty if you change it.
In terms of build quality I would rate them:
1. Panasonic Toughbook (but very heavy and very, very expensive)
2. Lenovo Thinkpad or older HP Elitebooks (2570p, 8470p etc.)
3. Newer HP Elitebooks (840 G1/G2 etc.) but still amazingly light for such a serviceable laptop. Pity about the max 130° hinge opening
4. Dell Latitude

Yes the E6420/30 has a plastic bottom but the rest of the laptop is a huge lump of magnesium alloy, very solid laptops. Your quite right no service hatch, remove the plastic bottom plate for full access to all components. HDD access is also separate without removing the bottom plate.

Agree on the 840 G1 though, great great machine, If a little pricey for the spec. I've had one as a work laptop for the last 3yrs now, probably the best work laptop I've ever had (and I've been through a lot in the last 20yrs)

Good spot. Those are the official specs from Lenovo -guess because 8GB modules weren't easily available when the T420 was released. I know the T410 doesn't support 8GB modules.
The Thinkwiki's both mention 16GB max as well.
The English one without any caveats:
http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:T420
While the German one does say that 8GB is the official, although plenty of users have successfully tried 16GB:

64GB of Read Only Memory sounds very unuseful.
What are they storing on it if it's read only?

It's not really the same as WORM memory which what you may possibly be interpreting?


I see your sense of humour bypass operation was a complete success.
thank you for this. i am very familiar with rooting phones and xda but it will still save me a lot of time

I got this phone from banggood (same link as above) and it arrived last week (about 2.5 weeks delivery time) with no customs charges to pay.
I got it in white and I was a bit concerned before it got here that I'd hate the black line around the screen but honestly it's so thin that it doesn't bother me in the slightest. Check out the white mi5 to see monstruous black bezel around the screen.
It came sealed in the box (though likely sealed by the banggood people because all the videos I've seen online the box didn't have the specific seal that was on my box) with the indian 2.0.093 ST firmware with the Play Store sideloaded and also multiple languages.
This was definitely not factory firmware and the OTA Updater was broken, though I did root it and look around through it and couldn't find anything that looked or behaved like malware/spyware/adware.
Bloatware was minimum and the software was snappy and stable, pretty stock looking at first glance, but quick settings, notifications, and menus were unpleasantly apple-like. I love the home button gestures, took about half a day to get used to them but they're now second nature.
All in all, one could use the software as a daily driver with no issues whatsoever, pretty well put together actually. Google Play and everything else worked perfectly.
But I personally didn't, I unlocked the bootloader (painless, thank you ZUK) and flashed the Resurrection Remix ROM available on XDA + root + Magisk + xposed + Nova Launcher, I'm too accustomed to this particular setup and I love the level of access I have over my phone now.
It takes everything I throw at it without even flinching. I got a ~130k Antutu score, not shabby at all for a ~£140 phone.
Another thing I like is how sturdy it feels. It's heavy but in a good way and it's great for one hand usability.
Is Resurrection better than the Indian ROM?
Do you have the links for:
Your Rooting method +
The ROM you flashed?
Thanks.
I loaded a custom ROM in my phone just last week and here's the steps and the pitfalls you need to avoid:
This is the guide I used: http://zukfans.eu/community/threads/zuk-z2-bootloader-unlock.62/
So grab your phone S/N, install ADB and Fastboot on your PC, and install the Google and ZUK drivers.
Things to note:
If you're on Windows 8/10, you might have issues with driver signing enforcement. Bizzarely the drivers from Lenovo for the ZUK are unsigned and Windows does not like that. So you might need to disable this function. Thankfully, it's rather painless. http://www.howtogeek.com/167723/how-to-disable-driver-signature-verification-on-64-bit-windows-8.1-so-that-you-can-install-unsigned-drivers/
Now to unlock the bootloader. You'll need to go to http://developer.zuk.com/bootloader but first you'll need to register to the site. I'm assuming that you're not in China or have a chinese SIM lying around so you'll need to register using email, which can be done here: https://passport.zuk.com/wauthen3/wauth/jsp/register.jsp?lenovoid.action=uilogin&lenovoid.realm=www.zuk.com&lenovoid.ctx=JTJGc3RvcmUlMkZ6Y29kZSUyRmluZGV4LmpodG1sJTNGbnVsbA&lenovoid.lang=null&lenovoid.uinfo=null&lenovoid.cb=http://www.zuk.com/login/logincallback.jhtml&lenovoid.vb=null&lenovoid.display=null&lenovoid.idp=null&lenovoid.source=browser:m.zuk.com?lenovoid.action=uilogin&lenovoid.realm=www.zuk.com&lenovoid.ctx=JTJGc3RvcmUlMkZ6Y29kZSUyRmluZGV4LmpodG1sJTNGbnVsbA&lenovoid.lang=null&lenovoid.uinfo=null&lenovoid.cb=http://www.zuk.com/login/logincallback.jhtml&lenovoid.vp=&lenovoid.display=null&lenovoid_idp=null&lenovoid.source=browser:m.zuk.com&lenovoid.thirdname=null&lenovoid.qrstate=null
Once you register, fill in the bootloader unlock form and you'll get an email with some Chinese writing, this is unimportant. Look at the attachment to that email and you'll find a unlock_bootloader.img file. Download it and you're in business.
Now I ran into trouble sending fastboot commands to my phone, just wouldn't be detected for some reason, no clue why. But I found this tool by mauronofrio: https://forum.xda-developers.com/zuk-z2-pro/development/tool-tool-one-driversunlocktwrpfactory-t3432782 - works like a charm, you can use it to unlock the bootloader and then install TWRP on your phone.
Once you have TWRP then you can install whatever ROM that tickles your fancy, no problem. Personally I'm running Resurrection Remix by fedor917 https://forum.xda-developers.com/zuk-z2-pro/development/6-0-1-unofficial-resurrection-remix-t3504145 I tried CM14.1 but it's not stable enough for me and I much prefer RR. Plus it's Marshmallow so xposed works fine on it and plenty other stuff that hasn't reached Nougat yet. I really want Nougat-based Resurrection Remix on this phone and I've been working at porting it, but it's the first time I do this so it's quite a steep learning curve.

I quite like this laptop. I think i'll get it if it drops to £800 or below. Considering the asus U305 M cpu series is going for £650ish, this is a steal. Would have liked 16gb ram and 512ssd though. Wish they had this option for sale. Really don't fancy the faff upgrading the ram and ssd down the line (one of the reasons holding me back from committing to buying this). If you do plan on putting in a 512gb drive, it'll cost £150+ for a 512gb one so keep this in mind.
Not from JL, but Very.co.k has it is at below £800.

Wish they had this option for sale. Really don't fancy the faff upgrading the ram and ssd down the line (one of the reasons holding me back from committing to buying this). If you do plan on putting in a 512gb drive, it'll cost £150+ for a 512gb one so keep this in mind.
Not from JL, but Very.co.k has it is at below £800.

​ It's Windows 10 not Android so to use kodi or Mobdro you need to install an emulator first (I believe). Perhaps someone with more experience will confirm this?

Nope Kodi runs off Windows too. No need for emulator. This will run Kodi.

Is this the best laptop, for home use, for 500 quid, anyone in the know here knows of then??? :)
It's very hard to give you a precise answer as your actual requirements will differ from another person, but I would say if you plan to spend £500, for general home use then this laptop is more than suitable for your needs. I don't think you will be disappointed....

my comments...hope they help

Item Weight 2.1 Kg - probably an average weight, not too heavy or light
Screen Size 15.6 inches - more than suitable for home use
Screen Resolution 1920 x 1080 pixels - more than suitable for home use
Processor Type Core i7 - good spec and latest generation. Probably actually overkill for home use, but if you have the budget this is a good component to spend the money on to future proof it
RAM Size 8 GB - good amount
Hard Drive Size 2000 GB - lots and lots of space, so good. Would be super fast to boot if it included an SDD (solid state hard drive), but you may be able to add one later.
Graphics Card Description NVIDIA GeForce 920MX - Deff overkill for home use, this laptop will handle almost everything you will throw at it from a graphics point of view (i.e. latest games etc)
Number of USB 3.0 Ports 1 - could have done with more usb 3 but not a deal breaker


Wrong; ​It does not have the latest generation chip; it has a skylake i7 chip NOT Kaby lake.

Just looked it up and I'm surprised to see you are also correct. I had assumed an i7 6xxx was the latest group of chips but I see this is dated July 2015, so yes not the latest but still good enough for a home PC.

Thats INCORRECT, you need something like a Nvidia GTX 950 or higher to play some of the latest games in a acceptable capacity IMHO (or atleast get Nvidia 940MX if your really struggling for a budget).
Please check the graphics card benchmarks on http://www.notebookcheck.net/ for further info.

Yup, your right - I was writing on the assumption 'he' was going to play average games but not the latest/powerful - in which case a gaming laptop 'type' would be best. So yes you are correct

The code is still available - just looked into to it and you have to be registered and logged in for the coupon to show on the product page or for the code to work in the trolley.

Thanks for the reply. I was logged in when I tried the code. I have bought from banggood a few times. But, the full price is still £382.95, and when I add the code, it only goes down to £323.72.

Are you able to get the price mentioned when you add the phone to your basket?

one of these or a Xiaomi Mi5??
tough question, i've been pondering it myself - the mi5 has a better camera (i think, subjective, but the OIS is supposed to be truly world class) the CPU is downclocked a little though making it a touch slower, and the border around the screen bothers a few reviewers.
I have the Mi5 and Zuk z2.
Still in two minds about which to have as my daily driver...
If your more bothered about looks and good camera performance then mi5 is the one
however at the moment the Zuk is winning on performance which isn't surprising as it has more ram and the 'proper' 820 soc (Not the under clocked version)
Here is my quick summary from the standard zuk z2 thread ...
"I moved form a Xiaomi Mi5, so it was going to take something good to beat or match it.
At the moment im really liking the Zuk, to put it simply 'it just works' everything i throw at it, it juts does.
For example yesterday I was driving with google maps on, spotify playing in the background, then I can say "OK google call xyz" and it does it without hesitation.
And the battery life is great. It doesnt have the same quality feel as the mi5, and the camera isnt as good, however the performance and battery life beats it.
HOwever there are two annoyances if anyone knows how to fix?.
If i swipe down on the notification bar, and then let go. The notification icons disappear from the top bar. Is there anyway to tell the phone to keep them there until i read or discard them?
The other one (Which i think is a no as it unique to xiaomi) is there a way to enable one handed mode?"
Back onto this deal I would be more tempted with the newly announced Zuk edge. Looks brilliant. about £270 at the moment but not been any deals (Nor does it seem to be available form any re sellers at the moment)
Im hoping bangood get hold of some and do a good pre sale price


Do you have an opinion on which has the better screen? I've heard the ZUK has AMOLED (almost certainly on the Pro, probably on the Z2) and whether the border on the Mi5 is as annoying as some reviewers make out....

German keyboard. useless
http://www.notebookcheck.net/fileadmin/_processed_/csm_main_8239805f95.jpg

Looking online, I've noticed that the QWERTZ keyboard has a much shorter right shift key. This may be a problem for touch-typists.

I've just tried to cancel my order but I think Amazon are going to ship regardless.

Is this causing any problems for anyone?

Arrived today. Sweeeet.
Buttons changed (don't do this if you're ham fisted, mars bar fingered etc its on your own risk). Set keyboard and locale to UK and indeed qwerty touch type layout prevails (shft 3 = £ etc). Quiet, light & I'm happy oh and it flies.
Your choice about changing keyboards or leave as is but I'm happy typing this. I don't speak it but I figured out the initial German setup before changing it in the first 5mins.
Edit Lenovo livechat said 310 doesn't have miracast ... eh yes it does

its like they took nice a really nice up to date i5 w SSD and FHD but put it in an old-ish undesirable laptop model ..kinda sad really. :(

Not sure - I've ordered it as the spec is otherwise really good compared to other models.

Has anyone spotted a better alternative at this price for a comparible spec?

Great tablet, bought it few months back for the same price from Argos. No HD that's right but 2GB even box says. Since the new 6.0 Chrome slowed down.
Don't listen to people talking rubbish like 1GB and not good quality etc
Price goes up to £179.99 when you add it your basket.

Very very cold.
I bought lg gpad 8.3 for this price 3 years ago. It has better procesor, 2gb of ram and 1920-1200 screen. Very easy put nougat on this.
I bought one of these in Currys back in the summer when it was £149 but mine has 2 gig of ram and runs great. No HD isn't a problem watching films as the picture still looks spot on. The resolution for browsing etc. is a bit poor but it really is a good tablet for the money. Not sure why they're saying only 1 gig of ram though, I'd double check that

Got one of these and it's going right back.
The touchpad is absolutely awful. It randomly stops responding until you remove your finger, acts as if you have 2 fingers on the touchpad instead of one so instead of moving the mouse it starts zooming in an out. Drivers don't help. In fact removing the synaptic drivers actually makes it work a bit better.
Why can't they make touchpads that work on a £1000 machine.
If it's that bad have you considered it's just plain faulty and you got unlucky?

It's an Acer and the CPU isn't as good
Could have been one of the £480 slightly different spec ones noted here - http://shop.lenovo.com/gb/en/laptops/ideapad/500-series/510s-14-inch/
so general consensus is the laptop is decent but price maybe not. I highly doubt whether this model with same specs was so much cheaper on very which is normally priced higher but no proof either way

The Lenovo has a much faster card reader and network card.
The screen also better. It is brighter, has higher contrast and able to display more of the adobe colour spectrum.
But the Lenovo is at least £100 overpriced.
Link for a laptop with the same specs that's cheaper please?
As pointed out earlier by 'FinderOfDeals' this laptop was £480 in September.
These machines aren't fine wine or antiques. Prices are supposed to go down as time goes on.
But hey if you're happy paying £550 for this then go ahead. I personally just don't feel it's worth that much.
I personally (not sure why its bold but hey ho) would be happy to pay the lower price obviously but people keep talking and not providing links where we can purchase... These machines aren't like unicorns or dragons, they are supposed to exist and not be mythical!

It's in bold because you took my opinion that it's £100 too expensive and turned it into a challenge of finding a comparable machine for less money.
I was hoping making it bold would drive home the point that I was voicing my opinion but I guess you need a less subtle approach.

Just because something is the cheapest at this current moment doesn't mean it's worth it and value for money. Sure it's technically a deal and what this site is about but you'll find that people don't agree with you that it's much of a hot deal. Not even Luke warm really.

Sure it's a good machine but I'm not sure how anyone can happily buy it now knowing it was cheaper months ago.
I mean come on. 3 months later, £80 more expensive, we're in a sale period, and its after kaby lake has dropped.

Oh and I was never debating the existence of this laptop.
If you'd have said a delorean reference I suppose that would be fair play.


If it was cheaper months ago? no evidence backing it up! A Delorean would be good but I'd rather use it to go into the future than the past hence why I didn't use the reference or do I need to be less subtle for you?

Hope these are better than the T400 I bought my Son from a deal off here (another reseller) that lasted all of about 3 months before developing an issue where the screen intermittently works on boot up.
Wouldn't buy another refurb now without a decent warranty which shows confidence in what they are selling.
It's not only about robust construction though as anything no matter how well made can break.
No, the reason these kind of machines are corporate favourites is that they are easy to fix by design and the manufacturers provide hardware maintenance manuals.
So while your experience was unfortunate, as long as you are patient and willing to follow the manual it should have been possible to fix it. Most likely a lose connection so taking off the keyboard and wiggling the lead might have sorted it.
I still have it here and tried booting it up for the last few days and every time now the screen is failing to come on, can hear Windows successfully boot with the sound played at logon screen. As you say i'll have to find the manual for it and try taking it apart to see if it's fixable.
Nothing to lose (which is what I always say when something is broken I want to fix it myself).

If you've never done something like this before, I'd watch those first even if you can't find someone taking your exact model apart. They're good for getting a feel of what's involved. Then use the PDF manual to look up any specifics.

I've just opened the lid and the row of lights on the bottom of the screen were lit up meaning it was working so wondering if just a loose connection to the screen.

Hope these are better than the T400 I bought my Son from a deal off here (another reseller) that lasted all of about 3 months before developing an issue where the screen intermittently works on boot up.
Wouldn't buy another refurb now without a decent warranty which shows confidence in what they are selling.
It's not only about robust construction though as anything no matter how well made can break.
No, the reason these kind of machines are corporate favourites is that they are easy to fix by design and the manufacturers provide hardware maintenance manuals.
So while your experience was unfortunate, as long as you are patient and willing to follow the manual it should have been possible to fix it. Most likely a lose connection so taking off the keyboard and wiggling the lead might have sorted it.
I still have it here and tried booting it up for the last few days and every time now the screen is failing to come on, can hear Windows successfully boot with the sound played at logon screen. As you say i'll have to find the manual for it and try taking it apart to see if it's fixable.

Nothing to lose (which is what I always say when something is broken I want to fix it myself).

I got a refurb Thinkpad a while back, an X301. It certainly feels solid but the screen is the most mediocre laptop screen I've ever come across. You can't mod them either.

This would be a great deal if the GET25 code worked. At 399 the HP deal posted is probably better.

5hr battery and weighs 2.2kg. no ssd but that can be changed. for price I think it's reasonable considering full hd screen.
Any more comments or recommendations on this? It seems like a decent little laptop.

not showing at this price anymore

can anyone recommend a decent 2 in 1 tablet/laptop between 100 and 150 mark? thanks
One use case where I found the Windows tablet helped me was having full Outlook with all my emails available on a long flight.
This was possible because the tablet uses a USB charger cable, and so a strong powerbank meant I was able to use it for a long time comfortably as well as have full Outlook functionality.
(I have the previous version - Miix 300)
All my above mentioned, depends on the 'User'?, but though, saying all that, I do like the LINX. :-)

I would echo what tommy said. Further, the Asus version is the one to go for.

I agree with a lot of Tommy's comments too, in that it purely comes down to what you will use your Device for, etc?.

If simple browsing, and emailing, then I personally don't see the point of spending £500+ for just that?, or do I see the need to spend even £300+ for the exact same basic PC needs?.

A £50-£200 top's Tablet to Chrome Book to Note Book to bog standard Laptop is more than sufficient plenty for just those simple things?

As for your ASUS, aka ASUS Transformer comment, are those thing's on average £200+?, and geared towards more than just your average 'Surfer Dude' like?, or ..... (a slightly different plato to that of the OP's above Deal?, lol) hehehehe. :-)

That's alot of waiting for it to arrive. Mabey another similer spec or better will appear before this arrives.
Like the fact that you put an apostrophe in there
I can't think of a sentence where I could use the word thats, that doesn't mean you can't, but maybe it's not actually a word just like whats isn't a word. Thats without an apostrophe would imply more than one that.
Anyway if there's any grammar gurus out there, give us a sentence using the word thats.
I think he was being sarcastic.
Like "you wrote that's correctly with the apostrophe while the rest is full of errors".
Great price for this spec. Yes the GPU isn't the best and it's not got SSD but for this price you can't have it all. Have some heat (late I know)

Haven't come across any very good laptop for the money
I only recently bought the same on but the 1366x768 from them for £279.99, at this size of screen the difference is minimal... anyway open the hatch at bottom and fit a 2tb Seagate firecuda for £100 and got a snappy laptop for cheap
Any downsides to this apart from lack of ssd?
If it had an ssd that would be a great deal and I would buy it.

Everyone on this site is obsessed with FHD screens! - If you want the best, go and pay for it!

I got a supposed FHD screen on my Lenovo on the 330quid deal at JLewis around black Friday. ..so not too expensive really... and when comparing to my HP standard screen ..you can see a big difference! Sadly I think having this nicer screen drains the battery faster tho...so I'm weighing up which is more important as I travel alot!
​yeah I can confirm it comes with free now tv pass along with a few others but they have risen the price.
I still see the same price at 249. Am I missing something here?
​you are quite right it is still £249.99 my apologies. This offer does come with the free now tv pass
​The store had no clue about Now TV offer. I was told that this item is exempt from 30 day return period
​I quoted the catalogue promo, they looked into it and took my number. Went in today and picked up the now tv voucher.

Can I have the Catalog Code or link which I can show them?

it works but you cant complete checkout after entering card details. Says promo had ended and your unable to complete the transaction. Checked a couple times. Strange.
And if they have pulled the deal off then that was very quick!
I'm guessing its perhaps a glitch on their site? Will try phoning them tomorrow
* Tried again and still getting the same error message - A promotion is no longer available. Please check the updated price in your basket. *
the code Ends: 26/12/2016 so its probably gone, my sister managed to order one.

I think this looks pretty decent, would be better with that drive being an SSD. The people complaining about the speed are possibly missing the point that it is a U processor using next to no power, if their old ones were normal mobile processors or desktops then they probably would be faster I reckon

The price is higher than other laptops with the same processor because of the large ssd drive which enables you to boot up the laptop in 30 seconds and read and write files at 50pmb per second. If you're looking for speed, this is perfect
