That's an amazing price for a laptop.
If you want one buy it quick because it's going to sell out fast at this price..
1366 x 768 doesn't sound like 'high definition' to me.

Still a decent deal though mind.
That's a good deal. The display is a bit underwhelming though.
I've got this laptop paid 279 for it when it came out battery lasts ages on it screen is ok not one of those super low end one's
Even though it's cheap, the 'glorious HD' is not actually full HD. And not much storage space, particularly if you install any version of Ms office, although theoretically this requires ony 3GB of disk space, memory requirements are quite high and it will struggle. And of course files produced by (for instance) word are very large, and only 64GB of emmc, so I'm not going to vote it hot, sorry. Ok for occasional use but never my 'constant companion'
To the OP, it's better to try to use your own words if ypu can to describe the deal as the advertiser is likely to exaggerate its features! It helps if you have actually bought the deal

No, if I had I'd post it. It is very cheap, but it's very cheap for a reason.
Thanks OP. Got one of these in 128gb spec a few weeks ago for about £160, very impressed, perfectly fine for the kids for browsing, office, youtube etc so got another for youngest daughter. Battery life is amazing. Nothing comes close at this price for a full blown 64bit windows 10 pc

Too many 'techies' on here moaning about screen res, hard drive speed etc..have a word, it's only £130

Edit..oh and the last one I got like this from Argos as 'refurbished' was brand new

So basically, you're complaining that it doesn't have a full HD screen, doesn't have 4K, doesn't have a 1TB SSD etc etc (but can't link to anything comparable) whilst completely ignoring the fact that this an absolute bargain at the price?

I personally wouldn't buy it because it wouldn't be useful even though it's cheap.
These cheap laptops you see in Currys etc are rubbish.
I've thrown away quite a few old laptops even though they still work, they take ages to start, if they can run a modern version of Office, it takes ages to load, you can only load a few tabs when browsing and they take a long time to display, you sometimes need to scroll sideways to see the rest of the screen, etc etc, They aren't useful, they don't work fast enough.
Actually, they usually have many more ports than modern machines and decent activity lights.
Do you buy anything just because it is cheap? You could probably buy cheaper laptops on Ebay, why not just buy the cheapest one you can find?

You've clearly got no real world experience of a laptop with this spec because it runs MS Office perfectly fine. In fact, MS Office is one of the least demanding application suites you can get as its intended to be able to run on office PCs, many of which will have a basic hardware spec.

You've definitely this laptop confused with something else. Other things you've said don't even make sense either eg. "And of course files produced by (for instance) word are very large"

What's your definition of "very large"? You don't think that you can save Word files on a laptop with 64GB of eMMC storage?

Word files are notoriously large compared to the amount of useful information in them.
Do you imagine that users store one word file on their laptops?
You persist in arguing.
I'm really not interested

But what file sizes are you saying that they're going to be?

If you can't even answer that then you don't really understand files sizes, hardware requirements of MS Office, laptop specs etc

None of this rambling is relevant to this laptop. It runs office 2016 fine. Loads up in seconds, can run multiple browser tabs and various applications simultaneously. I know this as I have one already and I'm very happy with it. I've worked in IT for 28 years, so I know what I'm talking about.
