Sark LiftAway Deluxe (although it may be OOS everywhere now)


Which model? Looking for one and too many models out there. Thanks


I was tempted by the Shark range, briefly, but then I read the performance ratings. The corded one in this bundle is only B rated for carpet and C rated for hard floors. So about as good, or only slightly better, than a comparable Dyson. For the amount of money asked, that doesn't seem very good.

Well yeah. As I own one and sell them :p . Mostly we rarely see the pink ones but it’s really red-pink on the Compact and a blush pink for the full size one. Great phones anyway. Always bugged me only the bigger one had 64GB storage onboard and a proper metal unibody.


Only you would notice that :S I just took it from the website. (y)


Confused me OP, that’s a XZ1 Compact in the thumbnail! Different shade of pink as well:

All tablets are the same. They call it a laptop but it's really a tablet with a keyboard attached


Heat added. Thanks OP. Is it worth paying AO 12 pounds p/m for insurance for the laptop? Lots of people moaning about it not being repairable. At least this way they will replace if damanged beyond repair. Also covers accidental damage.


Cold from me, this is one of the least repairable and upgradable latops ever produced.

I signed up for a 'when back in stock' email, but then after a few minutes I got a 'this item is discontinued' email from AO.

My mistake, £979. It was on here, I think they only had three left when I ordered so it didn't last long. I didn't get any quidco/tcb but did manage to get a couple of thousand virgin airmiles by going through their shopsaway site. I'm really pleased with the laptop and the price I paid so if you can get this for £900 after codes, etc I'd say it's an absolute bargain (for anyone who wants something like this as opposed to a big/heavy/plastic/gaming laptop)


That’s amazing, how did u get it so cheap


I picked one of these up from John Lewis last month for £960 and I'm extremely happy with it. It's incredibly small and light but it really does have a premium feel, my previous laptop was a Lenovo Yoga ultrabook, now three years old, which was good but this just feels so much nicer to use. Apart from obviously being a lot faster as it's newer spec the keyboard and speakers are also much better and the screen is certainly no worse despite being 1080p compared to the higher res 4k screen on the Lenovo, I'd agree that the 4k is unnecessary and is just a battery drain. In terms of portability, useability and build quality this thing is an absolute pleasure to use.


Exactly my thoughts, I agree with you . And it’s not even 1.5k, try 1.1kg :)


I read the first line and all i can say is Whaaaa l?! Please tell me where i can find a well built yet light (less than 2kg for 15 inch or less than 1.5kg for 14 inch) laptop with the specs u mentioned.

Nice vacuum cleaner. Not much of a pet though. Far too noisy for my liking, not to mention that it’s constantly hungry. At least the food is cheap.

Seems good! £959 for this with the £200 cashback and LAPTOP40 £40 code. Tempted! And I love AO's customer service...

Oh nevermind...apparently the code expired at the start of the 20th not the end :(


I'd be interested to know whether you can get the £40 off and the £200 cashback as if so this is a great deal, but I suspect the cashback wont be honoured if you use the code... Has anyone done this successfully?


That's not the same one. That's a Surface Pro, not a Surface Book 2.


I have one 256 GB . i paid £999 and got it from Currys. its a Awesome machine for what it is ... Its a full windows machine packed in tablet. yes you can get better specin in a bigger laptop yes you can get a desktop for that with better specs But if you are looking for portability this is the gold standard. And with regards to battery if the battery starts losing charge in 3 years time then i will get the new batteries installed in it. Look at bright side !!!!


I tested one and got almost 5 hours of general usage with Adobe CC products but that was a new machine once all updates were on. It doesn't surprise me that actual usage would be less (part of the reason why I didn't like the split approach).

Looks like a good price for a useful homework laptop!? 4% Quidco from AO for Windows Laptops!

Not 1080p.


I would also rarely advocate a small SSD as the only HDD in a homework/uni laptop. You'll have, realistically, less than 100gb to play with after the Win 10 install. So all in all a bit of a strange laptop. I'd rather a pentium + 1tb combo for the kids' school laptop.

In game mode, the input lag is very low regardless of resolution, and outside of game mode the input lag is lower at 4k than the C7, and is one of the lowest we have ever tested. The input lag was slightly higher in 4k @ 60 Hz + HDR. This result is highly unusual and has been retested to verify the results. The input lag is still low, and should feel very responsive.


What are OLED tv's like for gaming?


It's the same image quality as the B7/C7. Save £300-£400 and get one of those. This is old cack stuffed inside the 8 series body.

Get dealGet deal

Lol don't get the statement. 110% you would see greater impact from an SSD than an extra 4gb ram, admittedly you would want to do both. Reality is both are ready to do so no great shakes. The issue is when you do add those things you are creeping towards Ryzen 5 laptop price points which are much faster processors.


Don't understand while you advocating against an SSD then. A SSD will improve the responsiveness of any system massively. Would be the first thing to upgrade.


I personally dont need or own a laptop, i have a gaming pc. I already reap the benfits of an ssd.


I've got this old netbook that runs an i3 with 4gb ram... it was sooooo slow! Would take a minute to load up windows even and everything else was just the same. Putting an ssd in it was the best thing ever, loads up in 5 seconds now and has no problems with chrome or anything like that. If definitely go ssd over more ram


While i agree an ssd is nice to have, its not really that essential to the average user & tbh unless you've used an ssd you cant tell that hard drives are that slow. Without an ssd this eould br fine for light gaming & browsing, tbh the first thing id upgrade is the ram from 4 to 8gb, especially if you plan on using chrome lol or doing any semi heavy workloads such as gaming. SSDs are amazing though & would be a very nice addition.

To be fair, comparable spec'd laptops with a dedicated graphics card (even the 1050) would be hard to find at £1,409 with an 8th gen quad core i7. That's not considering the detachable screen element and excellent craftsmanship. I'm really happy with mine.


Cold, the IPhone XS has more memory for a similar price (excited) (excited) (excited) . . . . Actually didn’t vote.


It’s a good saving so heat from me even if it is still crazy expensive. But the kicker is that it still only has 256GB. Surely it has to have 512GB at a min at that price?
