Please be gentle this is my first post!!!

I am expecting lots of negative responses but I just wanted a small laptop for my daughter and just ordered from Tesco

I can't complain for £99!
Amazon are currently selling it for £198 amazon.co.uk/Ace…6EI

Remember its a cloud book so not much internal storage.

Good price though, heat.
All things considered, that's pretty good. Good job
Very good deal. Especially considering O365 alone would set you back £30-40.
Got a very similar HP model, albeit 14" for my daughters birthday and it isn't as slow as I expected.
Once I removed McAfee of course. :-)

If your daughter is quite young you might want to investigate Microsoft Family so you can control the hours she can spend on it, sites etc.
I bought one of these earlier - was away to get the lenovo one in curry's but this seems pretty much the same spec for 40 quid less. Had some instore but we're scanning at 149 so I just ordered to collect.
Does anyone know of office 365 is pre installed or if it is transferable to a different machine ? Thanks

whats it like, would this be ok for light browsing and some word stuff, do you know if it has one finger scroll option on the touchpad?
thinking of getting one but how is the storage as its only got 32gb and how does it cope with windows updated and adding say word or something, just need it for internet use and some letter typing? would this be ok. also if i didn't like can i return it for full refund?

Even if it is pre installed you can extract the key from it before activating it on this laptop.
If you do a quick Google there is plenty of info and lots of comments on here from the Linx 8 deals from a few months ago that came pre installed with office 365.
I doubt its an SSD I have an HP of simular spec and mines not....yes ideal for watching movies, browsing net etc

What you describe as your intended usage is exactly what a cloud book is designed for.
They have limited on board storage so as long as your connected to the internet and don't expect to do any heavy computing this is ideal for you.

I'd put money on it being eMMC - so flash storage. Others may correct me but I believe it'll be a touch faster than a HDD, and nowhere near the speeds of an SSD. On the plus side, it means the battery will also last longer than if it were either a HDD or SSD.
Anybody manage to spot how long the O365 subscription is for?
Great Spot. My netbook died over the summer so I was looking for a replacement and this certainly meets what I need. The 32Gb is eMMC by the way.
Would I be able to play a game such as Football Manager 2017 on this? It looks as if it meets the specs to be able to.
Really tempted by this - I got a Lenovo N22 Chromebook for this price a few months back but hate the screen (and a bit of pain not being able to work in Word/Excel). The resolution is the same on this machine but I wonder whether it looks better.

Also, about to sell out on Amazon...

If you want a better screen the medion at aldi might be a good option since it's full HD

https://www.aldi.co.uk/medion®-akoya®-s2218-notebook-11-6/p/093805080610300

I was tempted by that but as it's a kids pressie they probably wouldn't notice the difference
These are OK for what they are, browsing with more than a couple of tabs open can be slow though. The c drive will probably have around 6 or 7gb free after windows, so if you can bung a 32gb or 64gb sd card in though it is enough storage for most people I would think

Thanks - that looks alright though only a trial for Office365.
Presumably this one will have the same issues with W10 updates as mentioned in the Aldi reviews.
(BTW Ordered from Amazon just before stock ran out - more coming on Thurs but price will go up again.)
not bad for a first post (_;)
Ordered! Thanks op
Good post indeed OP, keep em coming imo! HOT....

Phew!! Thanks!
can you upgrade the ram?

All I see on here is 15.6 inch screens this is the first laptop I've seen with a small screen which is what I'm after.

highly doubt it. Even if you could, the CPU is so weak it wouldn't make use of it.
after the first year the Office365 and 1tb will cost £5.99 per month.
Ordered 2 for the kids

You can do annually for less? Argos have it for £39.99

Mmm thanks I'm a bit of a happy tab user and like many open together (50-100) Wasn't expecting much from this but may givebit a miss as the last cheap thing like this was frustrating and unusable for me. I'm unsure what sort of spec I need for large number of tabs as I don't want over kill. ( Wasn't expecting this to handle that many be lucky to handle 10 I imagine)

Thanks that makes this tempting as effectively is a lot less but I imagine its lack of power will frustrate like my mistake with the connect 10 tablet did with its lack of ram and my love for open tabs.
Interestingly, I would assume that the Celeron in this would out perform the Atom in the Medion deal (mainly because Celerons are usually higher up the food chain and its a newer release). But that isn't the case (if synth benches are to be believed), so maybe the Medion edges it if resolution is a deal breaker.

Erm is this a trick question? 365 days or 1 year if it's not a leap year.

It is easy to see le_jaeger's confusion: perhaps he thought it would be 365 years? It would be an easy mistake to make :-)
32gb is not enough for windows anymore. After the recent big updates you will start to have big problems and windows updates will start to fail as there won't be enough storage to download them or to then create the recovery points it makes before install. Look for 64gb minimum
Anyone know if can buy instore ar same price yet?
