Great little laptop/tablet hybrid only £99.99 when used in conjunction with exclusive temporary cash back on Quidco.com that is £100


From Quidco:
\I have had a look in to this for you and I can see that this purchase was made at 9:31am, it was agreed today with the retailer that this rate would be eligible until 11pm on 30th September
Just to clarify what the situation is with the £100 rate:

- The £100 rate began at 10:50am on 28th September
- The rate was available on all Acer 11s
- The rate then ended at 11pm on 30th September. The reason the rate has to end at 11pm is due to the fact that the tracking network (who track the cashback) are based in Europe and therefore an hour ahead.
Therefore, to confirm you will still receive the £100 cashback for this purchase so please don't worry

no micro sd?

Gets some harsh customer reviews in the MS store suggesting it arrives with only 12gb free space and near impossible to upgrade to windows 10.

Also people having trouble installing windows 10 due to the lack of storage space. I don't think you wil be able to install Windows 10. How long does quidco take to pay back?

Offer valid from 9:00 GMT on 3 August 2015 to 23:59 GMT on 30 September 2015. Offer is available while supplies last. Available in Microsoft online store in the United Kingdom only. Offer valid with purchase of Acer Switch 11 (BTS). Not valid on prior orders or purchases; cannot be transferred or otherwise redeemed for cash or coupon code(s). May not be combinable with other offers. Refunds will take into account the discount. Price discount does not include taxes, shipping or other fees. Void where prohibited or restricted by law. Microsoft reserves the right to modify or discontinue offers at any time.

Thx OP, all the negative reviews can be ignored as this is the signature edition (if only people read hey)

what I can tell you is that my mum has this and it is lovely, however the KB is very plastic feeling and feels cheap as chips, but the screen is lovely...

going to get on for my 7 year old at this price, as he can use a touch screen like a magician and but looks at a KB like it is something only old people use and it is totally alien to him, so he needs to practice

Acer edition (read the blurb, this is the Signature edition!)



Does that mean it will be shipped with more than 12\13.5Gb free space?

Any thoughts from the Techies here if the SSD can be upgraded? £99 for a Signature edition seems to be a good price but to run Windows 10, little more SSD would be a best bet!

I presume it must do as they base their signature edition on Acer not being allowed to pre install any of their software

Reading the blurb suggested no bloatwere and no time limited software was all signature meant. Seems good value but was worried about recommending for me nephew. Ssd upgrade might help.

I am not convinced Quidco will pay out on this one, and as such has made me pause on buying it, as it is allready on offer, the £100 is aimed at the £449 version I reckon, I might be wrong, but my suspicions are aroused enough

Bargain at £99 after quidco but managing disk space on a Windows 8/10 device with 32gb to play with will require regular attention. Not impossible to cope with but can be a pain at times if you intend doing more than surfing, streaming and emails. Look at it as a tablet/notebook and it is well worth a bit of bother considering the price.

Update: Whilst Quidco payments are never guaranteed, the quidco offer is quite specific. One possible scenario is that the Microsoft store wants to clear stock without having to reduce the above the line advertised selling price too much.

yep, my apologies, reckon you are right, says 3rd party bloatware, obviously Acer are not a 3rd party

For all those worried about storage space. I have an Asus T100 with 32GB of storage. My spare space has actually increased since using Windows 10 (W10 doesn't need a separate recovery partition).

As such, I have Asphalt 8 Airborne installed (nearly 2GB), Office 2016 (1+GB), Firefox, Chrome, iTunes, 50 or so store apps (including other smaller games), lots of little utilities (Glary, CCleaner, Cyber Ghost).

I STILL have 7GB's free.

For most normal people, you are unlikely to ever have a space issue. Obviously if you intend to add photos etc to your laptop, then make sure you add a micro SD (64GB cards are cheap these days).

You'd be surprised. I use my T100 / 32GB as my main computer. I do everything on it - and have lots of things installed. I haven't actually had to do any maintenance on it since I installed a fresh Windows 10 installation. It still has plenty of spare space (7GB's).

Remember, Windows 10 will even work on 16GB Windows tablets...

link to the quidco cashback would be nice



Just go to Quidco and type in Microsoft Store!

It will be shipped with Windows 8.1 You'll have to do an upgrade to Windows 10. Once activated, reset the tablet using the Windows 10 restore function. This will wipe away any remnants of Windows 10, but still leave you with the Acer drivers etc installed.
You should have around 18-21GB's of free space (that is what I was left with on my T100 - which has the same sized eMMC storage)

Nope...you can't upgrade storage. But Windows 10 is very space efficient. Just use a micro SD card to install pictures/videos/documents etc.
There will be a 'save apps to SD' option coming in the November Windows 10 update. But in the meantime, you'll have PLENTY of space. Just go easy on the large games installations (at least until save to SD is implemented)

its a shame its not more clear re the cashback as id buy on in a flash if i knew that the cashback would be honoured

Could the BIOS / EFI key be extracted, then used with a standard W10 install USB? I did that on a Linx 10 no issue with same size HD as this Switch.

It could....I did the same with my T100 when I messed up a reinstallation.
However, the Windows 10 upgrade tool means you really don't need to worry about spare space. If you don't have enough, it'll just prompt you to use a USB stick to help offload the files whilst it upgrades.

Windows 10 will install on this with no issues.

How do I buy this



Go to Quidco. Search for Microsoft Store. Click through on the cashback link, then shop as normal on the Microsoft Store website. Place order.
Cashback will track within 24 hours - and should be paid by November 5th.

Don't buy this if you are not happy paying £199.99 for it. Cashback is never guaranteed...

umaran

How do I buy this


To buy with possibility of £100 Quidco cashback
login (create) to your Quidco account;
seach for Microsoft Store,
click through to Microsoft Store;
search for the £199.99 Switch 11 and add it to your basket
login to / create your Microsoft Store account
pay £199.99 via your preferred payment card / PayPal.
Wait for £100 to show in your Quidco earnings, likely payable between 6 weeks to 6 months after purchase, or never if the cashback is declined.

I've ordered but will monitor the cashback situation carefully. Expecting them to say "Yes, there is £100 cashback on Acer Aspire Switch 11, but we didn't mean that Acer Aspire Switch 11".

I just checked with quidco and they said this one is included in the cashback. I took a screen shot of the chat but don't know how to post it.

Thanks for that. I wasn't too concerned about the cashback anyway as Microsoft Store are very good with payouts. But it's always useful to have a bit of extra ammunition should things go awry!

That confirmation makes this a really great deal ! £99 for a Windows 10 ready tablet with a better than usual processor. HOT

Yep. Should be a marginal upgrade on my Linx 10 (bigger screen and res, slight CPU advantage) and come with a reasonable keyboard. Great stuff.

I'm tempted to buy another. Definitely one of the hotter deals on HUKD!

Must resist but it's such a bargain.
What to do?

Buy it. Find a use for it.
If you don't find a use for it, sell it.
Profit.

Return for free within 14 days with Microsoft Store's no-hassle returns.

so if your purchase does not track on quidco within that time you could return it

States that the screen works with acer active pen/stylus.

Will the Microsoft surface pen work?

Seems like a good deal. Ordered. Thanks!

It has a MicroSD slot and USB slots. Should easily upgrade to Windows 10. People saying they cant just need to do a bit of research. You can download (legally) all the binaries onto a USB stick and execute the upgrade. I had to do this as I have around 7 PCs in my household and wasnt going to muck about waiting for the downlaod every time.
