£10 cheaper than the Amazon deal posted hotukdeals.com/dea…210 and comes with 2 year John Lewis warranty ...

The ASUS Vivobook E406 has been created with an Intel Celeron processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB of eMMC storage, a 14” display and a battery life of up to 14 hours.

Intel Celeron
Intel’s Celeron N4000 processor gives you enough speed to get browsing, emailing and even a spot of work.

This CPU features 4MB of cache, and 2 cores that can adjust their speed depending on the complexity of the task they are working on, from 1.10GHz to 2.60GHz.

Day to day convenience
ASUS’ Vivobook E406 has 4GB of RAM, which is enough for tasks like web browsing and word processing. You'll be able to run a couple of windows at once without any obvious lag or slowdown, however more demanding software such as Photoshop won’t work on this device.

Connecting your other devices
The USB ports allow for fast data transfer, while Bluetooth can help to send data wirelessly between devices. The HDMI port allows for larger screen experiences, while the handy memory card reader will give you the chance to directly upload your images from a digital camera to the computer.

Wireless communication
Built-in Wi-Fi makes it easy to connect the ASUS Vivobook E406 to the internet, whether that's through your own home network, Wi-Fi at work or a public connection.

Its windows 10 in case you were wondering. Its almost as if they didn't want to advertise that fact (buried deep down in the specifications). Probably because of the naff and paltry emmc, would probably make a better chromebook.

Anyway voted hot

If this is an upgrade of the e403 then you might be able to install another SSD and use the internal as a cache. My e403 has been used in a workshop daily for a few years and has never let me down, apart from c*ap windows updates.

Windows has more flexibility and as it has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage (even if it’s eMMC) then it’ll actually be fine. It’s when you get the 2GB and 32GB machines that it can be a struggle. At this price point I’d still be buying ex-lease anyway - ThinkPad T440 or Dell E7440 for less than this with stacks more performance.

Think at this pricepoint a lot comes down to what you are looking for and what compromises you can make ...

For me, the flexibility of Windows (despite the annoying updates) over a Chromebook was a plus, so was the increase from, as you say, the standard 2/32GB machines, making running Windows a more realistic proposition. I completely get the uplift in performance that can be acheived from an ex-lease machine, but for me, buying new, with the warranty, and the potential battery life gives me the combination I need from this machine, though obviously for others there are different priorities.

Yes exactly. For me the ex-lease route works better but I totally see why these netbook-type devices are popular for web browsing and productivity - brand new and low power consumption will be higher up the list for other people.
Not as good as The ASUS deal from this morning - cold

I’m looking forward to gaming on my imaginary machine as well! Doesn’t matter though, if I don’t get it, I will sue Amazon as they have accepted my order and it’s legally binding

Yeah, me too. Though the specs of this are quite good and it's half the price of this mornings order so I might contact Amazon and ask if they would be willing to cancel my order for it. Do you think I have a good chance or am I too late? Damn impulse buying...

Are you joking, I’m actually not sure now

The ASUS one this morning won’t be turning up but at least with this one you’ll actually get it even though they couldn’t be further apart in performance.
Hehe, yes, - just being very sarky. Worlds apart in performance for sure. fingers crossed it turns up

I would not be so certain. When you open, you may find the ports missing.

Someone went to the daily mail other day when Currys refused to honour the Sony TV glitch. Was quite a fun read.
£200 - eMMC?! - Does not compute. Exterminate. Exterminate.
Would love this just for GoG and bits and bobs...
Currently have an Alienware but think it's overkill lol

I would go for the ex-lease ones if it wasn’t for the mediocre battery life and the weight. Whole idea of a laptop is portability. If you factor in the cost of a new battery then it makes it more expensive. Ex-lease machines are great value if you’re always near a power outlet and don’t mind lugging a charger around though.

You can get a Dell E7440 battery for £20-30, same for a ThinkPad. That’s the benefit of ex-corporate machines, hot-swappable batteries and easy serviceability as well as good build quality. The other day I got a Dell E7450 ultrabook from ITZoo, Core i7, 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD for £150 and the battery was fine, 5+ hours off light use but even factoring that in it would be under £200. Anyway, ex-lease isn’t for everyone I know that but I feel that I’m also helping reduce my and my company’s environmental impact at the same time.

I don’t disagree, some of the deals on ex-lease machines are great but the ones I see are usually ok-ish. Of course if I had been in your shoes I would have bought that for £150 too!
