Not really looked for laptops on IWOOT Before, but thought this was worth a share. Seems very reasonable for what it is. It's a Dual core i7 (If you were wondering) Delivery is also free.

The next best is coming up at £791.98, which in my opinion is over the top here, but if your budget is around the £600 mark, then this would be worth considering.

Never heard of iwoot - a new company to have a look at for deals.

Never heard of iwoot - a new company to have a look at for deals.


They were at the forefront of selling nonsense on the internet many many many years ago, think cheap remote control helicopters, executive toys and similar sorts of tat. Bought a lot from there in my student day in the early 2000s.
There used to be many deals on here for iwoot, bought many tat things myself. Non are still operational, lol.
They used to be on cashback sites, worth checking.
Only 2 usb ports, no mention of usb 3, pity, think I'll pass.

Wow great price
1% cashback from Topcashback. Nowt from Quidcrap
This seems like a solid deal. Almost too cheap considering the spec! Trust iwoot though, used them many a time. On tat.

That's because the CPUs in convertibles typically can't sustain more than 1.3 - 1.8GHz under full load although the short term turbo boost is much higher. Haven't seen a review for this so no idea where it slots in.

"That's because the CPUs in convertibles typically can't sustain more than 1.3 - 1.8GHz under full load".

That's a very interesting comment ...

Why is that I wonder, I'm genuinely curious?, thanx. :-)
Yikes, CPU is only 3k on cpubenchmark.net/ that's like the same grunt as my i5 lappy from 2012! Was hoping for a bit more muscle than that!

Well 3.7k, it's because it's a low power processor in passively cooled convertible, not a powerhouse. It'll probably have really good battery life as well. It's a bit disingenuous to call it an i7, but it performs better than the other low voltage Core M parts.

Because they have a much lower TDP as they are designed to be passively cooled. The TDP is nearer 5W versus 15W for the U series used in thin laptops which use cooling and 35/45W for the high end 4 to 6 core CPUs which have high clock speeds.
I'm typing this on a Dell XPS 13 with the i7-7y75, 8gb ram. Had for about 9 months. It's handled everything I've thrown at it very well. It's not a gaming machine, but handles everything you'd expect from a daily worker, up to photo editing. I've not tried video editing, but would think that was ambitious.

Mine was more expensive than this! I'll say that. This is a good deal if you're realistic about it's purpose. Productivity, HD video? Perfect. Gaming? No. But let's not be silly!

Agreed re disingenuous. Sure it's a low power part and passively cooled, but you expect i7 to be performant and well 3k on cpubenchmark simply isn't.

Very interesting that. :-D

TDP = Thermal Design Power, hehehehe.

I was gonna do the standard thing as what's done here sometimes ...

But last minute decided to myself, "You know what, just Google it!, what have you got to lose exactly?", lol (as I honestly didn't have a clue what TDP was/meant/or whatever?). :-D

It's all good though, good explanation nonetheless, thanx. :-)
On the Merchant website for this Acer Tablet/Laptop hybrid:

"ACER SPIN 7 14 INCH FULL HD TOUCHSCREEN 2-IN-1 LAPTOP (INTEL CORE I7, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, WINDOWS 10 64-BIT) - BLACK


RRP: £1,499.99

£599.99

You Save: £900.00"

Like, huh???.

Was this EVER 2 seconds shy of £1.500?. :-(

What am I missing?.

Or is it one of those deliberate, over inflated 'marketing ploys' or something?, or what ...

Would you recommend the 15 inch 4k or qhd is it ive head best screen on a windows and gives MacBooks retina a run

I went for the FHD touchscreen as, in my opinion, it is plenty for a screen of this size. Better battery life and less resource hungry too.

For the 15, I’d probably consider the QHD.

In terms of general quality, the screen and slim bezels are excellent. I bet the QHD is fantastic.

Thanks i want to use it for both video and photo editing. And im not sure just yet what to go for.

But it will be this an imac or surface book 2

Don’t get a Y series processor for video editing. You WILL be disappointed. The Dell XPS (non 2in1) will have a full powered processor, but these low energy chips aren’t up to it. The surface books should be ok, no idea about the iMacs

The only thing that bugs me is the nits on the surface book 2

Sometimes im tempted by cabon x
Would you say go for the 2 in 1 version over the others
