Lots of impact protection on that - not.
It hasnt got the best reviews unfortunately
This is the 2018 model. Reviews were pretty uninspired for such a high ticket product. Last years model was apparently marginally better.
Good if form factor is the priority i guess?
Don't tell us OP this is off £800 rrp, we still have functioning brains

That said, it could be good for THIS money, build looks amazing, specs a bit less so
Voted hot for the price, ignore the RRP. This one ticks all the boxes for me, apart the fact it is more than I was willing to pay.
However, the issue with Acer thin ones is they are way too flimsy. My Acer Aspire S13 developed 'faults' related to built quality within the first month after I've got it. And it was about £1,000 when I've got it. The replacement did exactly the same. I do not know about this model, but to me looks flimsy too. Not easy to build something light and not flimsy at the same time. The other issue I have is the trackpad, drives me insane. Have mine since 3 years ago and sadly, despite the fact was one of the top models at that time, will need replacing and this is not because of the specs. My other laptops lasted much longer. After an aluminium one now.
I believe Asus Zenbook is better built quality and with some luck, significantly cheaper.

Looks amazing but if the built quality is the same as my Acer Aspire S13 which was one of their top models at the time I've got it...never seen something so flimsy as my S13 and was wondering how it passed the QC.

Build quality is excellent on this, not far off a 12 inch MacBook. (I'm not trolling)
Sorry but not worth it. 7th gen Intel processor so 3 years old. 8gig RAM and only 256GB SSD.
Had the gold model before this 2018. Was a great well built laptop - perfect for all my university and web needs. Did i mention it was soooo light! If i didnt already replace i would have seriously considered this at a great price new.

Thanks, I will have a look, dont want again a flimsy and expensive laptop. If the quality is good, I may get it. Despite the fact I was not willing to spend more than £400-500
Do you know if it aluminium or some metal. My S13 suggests 'nano god knows what', but it is a fancy name for plastic.

It's metal for sure, I'd say it was probably the best built windows machine I've had, considering how thin it is.

It was always going to be expensive as a lot of R&D clearly went into it. I'd say this price is very fair for what you are getting.
Duel core at £699 lmao

Build quality is actually really, really nice, metal body, feels sturdy. I paid £800 for mine a few months back and am very happy with it. I especially like that it runs silent at all times because of the fanless design.

Thank you! I had a look at the reviews and yes, it seems good built quality and metal, exactly how I want it. Shame they do not have finances available but I may try 4 months Paypal interest free to see if it works. I really like the ultra-thin factor.
On my ultra-book, the touchpad started to fail, it drives me insane, I do not even know if it can be fixed. Noticed in the reviews this one has a non-click touchpad, which in theory appeals to me considering the issues I have with mine now. In the same time, some reviewers suggested a non-click touchpad is not a great experience. What is your opinion, please? Have you got used with it, do you see any difference when using this type? Thanks!

I got used to the non click touchpad really quickly to be honest, which was good as I had the same concerns after reading reviews. It is nice and responsive and I haven't had any issues with it.

HP tried this a few years ago with their Forcepad and it was pretty unpleasant, if you tap you basically don’t notice anything different. The only other non-moving implementation I know of is Apple that ‘fakes’ a click with the Taptic Engine and it’s very good to the point you don’t notice.

Remember it’s a Y-series 7th gen so it’s power efficient but quite underpowered compared to U or H-series. At this price, I would have thought the Surface Laptop was a better purchase though for speed, durability, screenand keyboard/touchpad quality.

Thank you! Never thought at Surface, as I had no intention to spend more than £400-500 but when this deal came, I kind of started to think at it. Mostly for the form factor. I better take my mind away from it and keep an eye on the Zenbook from Currys, hopefully will go down in price to £500.
Don't remember now, if the Surface are the ones made from that material that looks like a carpet but they give a fancy name to it, I will not consider it even at half price
