    Rams cheap on ebay. Good deL
    Deal
    Looks great at that price
    That looks good
    Almost enough to pull the trigger.
    Good deal.
    Had this previously and only thing I would say is the screens not great. Shame it's not full 1920 x 1080 IPS. Not bad for the money though.

    Is it worth the price then?
    Excellent deal considering it's a 256GB SSD and has Win 10 Pro. Only screen lets it down a bit. Heat.

    I agree, but I can't find anything below £500 with Full HD, SSD and Core i3 or higher.

    Not that helpful when the RAM on this machine is soldered in place!
    Great little laptop & processor. I have the p238 13.3" version of this & upgraded the ram to 8gb & it plays games like grid autosport on high detail & mine is only ddr3 so this should have a slightly better speed.
    Windows 7?

    I'm not saying that is the exact same model, needs some more research. Crucial are saying the X349-M can be upgraded, but maybe -M is for memory upgrade-able

    i have 4GB RAM on my lenovo ideapad on intel i5, running on windows 10, SSD, and it is pretty fast. starts within a few minutes from being switched on and so for general use, you should be fine.

    Try this one - not quite as portable, but HD screen, i3 proceessor, SSD and HP so better build quality:

    Know what you mean. I picked up a Thinkpad 13 with FHD, i5-7200U and 256GB SSD for under £500 recently but had to resort to Ebay for it.

    That's a good bargain for a Thinkpad 13. Does it have backlit keyboard? If so, will have to start looking on ebay. Thanks.

    About a minute to two minutes. Certainly not seconds. It is on in seconds but it has to initialise so i have to wait for two minutes before i can start browsing or work with microsoft office

    Shouldn't take that long with a ssd. You might want to check what programs are running at start-up

    You need to right click on your taskbar then click on Task Manager then click on the Start-up tab and disable anything you don't need to open when windows starts.

    You can also click on This PC then right click on your SSD (C:) and click on properties and uncheck Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties. Your laptop shouldn't take 2 mins to boot up.
