PLEASE just do not touch this with a barge pole. People rip Atom/Pentium apart, but at least they are energy efficient. This is AMD A4 is woefully slow and not even decent on battery life. PLEASE just avoid like the plague. you will be glad you did.
Performance for reference is slower than a dual core celeron and power consumption is more than double

It got full just looking at it.
This kind of spec would be great on a Chromebook

Depending what you want to do with your laptop.... Love my Chromebook and it's an old one 2gb Acer but starts in seconds and you're browsing within 10 seconds

C720?
Looking for a good deal on an i3 128GB SSD it anyone knows any, thanks.

It’s not an awful lot, but there’s still going to be about 45gb ish of free space, plus the expansion slots. I’d say it would’ve plenty for a child (space wise).
I don’t pretend to know anything about the processor though but the reviews aren’t bad considering it’s one of the cheapest new laptops on the market.
Advertised as 8 hour battery life.

C720?


Possibly although I think it's 2016 Acer CB something ..... Anyway it's still great and gets monthly updates only issue is that it needs charging more. Probably only get 5 hours off a full charge now but it's 3 years old and only paid £100 from Amazon Warehouse at the time
'starter laptop' - what does that even mean?

A laptop for kids? forget it, kids play web-based games, web-based games absoultely RINSE CPU's and memory - two tabs open and the fans are screaming, then a few youtube and whatever tabs - nah, not for kids.

Someone who has just started using computers - sure, if you want them to hate computers, go right ahead.

Starter laptop is meaningless but for anyone in either of those camps i would always recommend going on ebay and getting an old thinkpad - x series or t series - not this pre-landfill

The other great thing about older thinkpads is they run linux beautifully, ubuntu is perfect for kids and oldies alike - try it for a week, look in the downloads folder just take a look at the amount of 'exe' files and general windows malware they have downloaded - you'll dodge a bullet for sure

"Basic laptop" might be a little more accurate.
I still have the original of those from 2010... upgraded to Windows 10 and running KSP on low settings... I wish they'd made a beefed up version of this... It's the size of an A4 piece of paper... I absolutely love it still...
If you treat it like a 'Chromebook+', I don't see any issue with it.

Hmmm "Powered by the latest AMD processors".
Been looking for a small netbook type device for a while but everyone on here gets canned. Got a budget of about 250 which should be enough for this type of device and yes it would almost entirely be for Web browsing and email management
Looking for a laptop to connect to a QHD monitor in dual screen. How to tell the max resolution this can out from its HDMI port?

The specs only say amd radeon r3 graphics no not the exact model.

Chromebook then mate! Seriously if you can pick a Chromebook up for around £150 you'll really like it

Even more so if you use Google services.... Gmail etc all sync with your phone if you're an Android user

If you are an iPhone or Microsoft person then maybe stick with windows but I'd still say try one

Thats how this site seems to work. People come on a thread for a laptop they clearly arent interested in buying say its trash and useless but dont offer any alternatives, they just say to spend more.

What are the chromebooks like for offline usage? Just thinking for times when travelling I would still want a reasonable amount of functionality for working on basic word docs etc?

I trashed it.

I offered alternatives

Those alternatives are cheaper.

I was making a general point from many threads. I wouldn't trust a used laptop you never know how much use it has had

Fine, you set up your account to allow offline work, and it all synchs up again once you're back online...

Oh no, far too modern, my old acer c720 is still going strong, I have one for every family member, so we can hot desk around the house...
Don't expect to do anything apart from check emails, watch YouTube and do online shopping!

Always a dice roll buying a used laptop, especially a Thinkpad which tend to have had a hard life. If you can find one in great condition then wonderful, but it's still had someone's dickbeaters all over it...

Linux for Little Johnny and Ethel? Yeah, no.
amiga.matt30/05/2020 00:41

Hard disagree, thinkpads, x and t series particularly are wonderful second hand machines, many have spent their life never outside an office, and they are the easiest machines in the world to swap out parts for.
amiga.matt30/05/2020 00:41

Linux for Little Johnny and Ethel? Yeah, no.


Not sure why not, until they get to high school, all they need is a browser. Both my kids grew up using Linux, using Linux on thinkpads, as it happens. One is now at high school and has had to start using windows, but recently requested a dual boot so he can use Linux again. Linux for kids is great tbh, adults may struggle with it, if all they have used is windows, but if it's what you start using, it's what you know. I'd recommend it for kids, certainly over windows

BIG fan of s/h Lenovo Thinkpads. I've had 3 x220s variously maltreated by kiddies, This one is built to last. I'm after another - it's this deal vs. 5 year old x260 or similar. Think I'd rather go s/h.
