Ebuyer seem to be the only seller of these, only just released.
Seems to be one of the best prices for one with 4GB RAM.
Intel Celeron N3350 1.1GHz
4GB RAM + 32GB eMMC
13.3" LED Display
Intel HD + WIFI
Windows 10 Home

Another name for this model is the ES1-332( the ES1-331 is the model previous to this one with the older processor)

This a review, but its for one with a faster processor.

Might be a bit more than that, probably more like 16Gb. But just like phones, shove a 64gb memory card in it for £15, will cover most peoples needs.

About 10GB... However put all your documents, music, videos, etc... on a sd card, don't install anything and you are ok...LOL. I use my tablet for streaming only. if you install office on it, you lose a lot lf space but you can still use it.

Can windows updates be installed via external memory?

Given it has different processor and ram, not the most useful

Not sure about minor ones, did the upgrade to Windows 10 from micro sd on a tablet.

Hot for the 4GBness... I'd put that in the title!

My sister is looking to get a Laptop for my newphew for homework/browsing etc for sub £160, would she be better off looking at a used "proper" laptop?

Yeah this is a new Apollo Lake based netbook, most of these sort of laptops were using Braswell in the previous models. The CPU is quite a lot faster (about 30%+ on single thread code), and the GPU and video decoding is better too. It's a shame it is a dual core model, but even so this should offer quite a decent performance boost.

Does anyone know whether this would be ok for playing Minecraft on?

you tube This young guy is playing Mafia 11 so it will play Minecraft ok.

Does anyone know if this would be useful as a client for Steam In-Home Streaming?

Just noticed the processor is 1.1ghz on this would I be better off getting this for my 11 year old for home work, browsing , youtube
printing ect or the Acer AO1-431 14" Laptop, Intel Celeron 1.6ghz 2GB RAM, 32GB, White/Blue (Office 365 Personal 1 year sub/1TB MS OneDrive cloud storage for £142

This. It may appear slower looking at the 1.1 to 1.6 but it performs better than the older celeron 3050.

Thank you xx

Not true, you can on a number of them, as a second drive including the Asus E402 and E403 series and a Medion 14" laptop that was posted on here that I forget the name of

Not sure but worth a check, you can with some, unlike the other reply says. Given the size it may be a possibility to add a second drive

woohooo first flamedeer caught here

Will this play League of Legends and Diablo 3 or is that too taxing? Any help is greatly appreciated

Perfect sized laptop are 13.3-14.1
shame about the processor though

my other one just packed up, (Familly member stood on it and bent it) although this is a great price, just know it'll be a bit on the slow side.

Reasonable CPU benchmark score for the price.

My uncle got one of these laptops with 32gb storage. Now for his basic needs it works fine but i'm forever having to run disc cleaner which for some reason takes an age to clear the windows downloaded updates which take up so much room he can't so much as save a picture.

And since you can't turn off windows updates in windows 10 it's a constant pain in my backside. I'd like to say install a card and save media to that but the person has to know to save media to that, and since he just clicks next next next whatever happens and doesn't even know what a micro sd card is, it's a waste of time. My aunty is exactly the same, so I spend hours every week clearing unwanted and unneeded updates off these two laptops all so they can check the local news or theatre listings a few times a week.

ps, yes i know a tablet would be better suited but neither of them want one of those.

RAM expandable to 8GB, according to the ebuyer description

Has anyone here taken the plunge and bought one of these?

Turn on "metered connection" in wifi settings which will stop updates being downloaded.

Thanks. Will give that a go.

This one needs expiring.
Ebuyer took my money Monday & at 12.12pm today they cancelled my order due to "out of stock".

They then put the price up to £179.99 & told me to wait 5 days for a refund.
Taking the pi55.
I've only noticed at 6:15pm this evening so i cant even telephone them to have rant.
Needless to say I will never shop with them again. (shocking).:3

Ordered the blue one last week, just been told it's out of stock and unable to send the black one instead as it's now back to £179... Shocking company. Anyone actually got hold of one?

Same thing happened to me. Useless control of stock.

I have this laptop and although the form factor is perfect (slim build and 13.3") it seems to lag and slow up on me running simple tasks like browsing YouTube or Facebook. I replaced the HDD with an SSD. I bought it for coding and stuff but find it hard to use for this.

What connections are there for HDD/SSD inside under the access hatch? Just wondering if you have the exact same or the ES1-331, The previous model?
331, have to remove the whole back

Newer 332 with a hatch

Was wondering if they removed the HDD/sad connection and only had one for a emmc in this particular model. There are versions of this with a 64gb emmc and a 1Tb HDD.
