Laptop previously posted but now a tenner cheaper!

Looks pretty decent for the price for a 2in1 convertible laptop. Been looking for one for a while but not seen much in this price range. Saw this on here a couple of weeks ago, now its £10 cheaper I'm getting one.

Lazy bark, Link to such a machine at £340 or how much more money to get what you propose? I wanna to buy one.

How does this compare to the zenbook deals? I realise that is a more expensive fan less machine but is this any slower?

Also, if hooked up to and external display would it achieve 1080. Very tempted with this one.
Any good for FM 2016?

I think this has a better processor but does have a lack of an SSD so dependent on the task it could be slower
Wife bought an Asus with same processor a month ago, loves it and runs fast. Hot!
How would this be for Youtube video editing?
How would this be for a young teenager for Internet browsing, homework, a few games etc. Problem is my daughter had been on our Mac desktop and now says she wants to save up for a mac book air but we've said that is a lot of money and will take her lots of years!

It should be fine, it has a core i5 processor, same as Macbook Air would likely have. Hot.
Good deal - nice sized laptop
I don't trust Asus build quality, touchpad button issues, power connector issues etc.

You may have brands mixed up, this is Asus (not Acer). Asus is top quality, same quality as Apple for the same priced products.

I know the difference between Apple, Asus and Acer and I regard Acer as much better choice than Asus on similar price point. I don't like Apple, as replacement parts cost you more than getting better specs laptop after sometime.

Asus certainly were good and Acer a bit carp but I too now think it's the other way round.
I miss their 3 in 1 which also had a full HD screen

I have the i7 version of this, over a year old and still runs fantastic, amazing battery life and feels very well made.

Ah, I think as mentioned before you have your brands muddled.
Thanks for the advice ref buying for a 13 year old, thinking it will be a good option. Def much cheaper than a MacBook which I'm not prepared to spend that sort of money on for her age it would be ludicrous!
Couple of inches bigger and I would be sold.

I can't say I've monitored it all that much but I'd say 4-5 hours is a rough estimate, I usually get a good amount of use from it before having to plug it in
Anyone go for this? Now a few pounds dearer, but still looks good. Any feedback?
