Okay so this deal is really for French versions of the UX303UB so they may come with the French style keyboard however the hardware for the price is great so I plan to remap the keyboard. Before downvoting, find a better speced 13.3" laptop that weighs 1.45kg...

Sorry not that good a deal, many cheaper equivalents just searching within HUKD with the better 6700HQ i7 and the much better 960M Gpu plus the SSD.
I've been looking at this laptop, seems like the best one out there in this price range that offers basic gaming in a ultrabook form. I was looking at one similar for £599.99 at ebuyer...

Sorry if I'm wrong but the UX303lb is an older model so I think the screen may have yellow/green colour issues and hinge problems that were fixed in this version. Seems like a very good price though for what it is still. I managed to buy one of laptops I posted off the Amazon warehouse deals in France for £500 though.

Ah, wasn't aware of the issues with the older model, thanks for the heads up. Think I'm going to wait for a Zenbook 3 anyway.

That's even lighter and doesn't have dedicated graphics right? Looks very nice though!
Sorry, French keyboard is terrible and the only way is to replace the keyboard with an UK/US one. Otherwise... just no. Even if I just found a great deal on another French laptop

Yeah, I think I'm prepared to give up the graphics card for the weight. If nothing else it may make the current range a bit cheaper!

I just plan to remap they keys and maybe put little stickers on them or take the thing apart to change the keys around if that's possible... also need to get an adapter because of the euro plug lol

Mind the azerty keyboard. Average specs, nothing hot here for me, and hhd instead ssd, i recently got a yoga pro 3 with 3200x1800 screen and ssd (no dedicated graphics but i assume 940m is nothing special anyway) and i paid for the yoga 380 on amazon warehouse. This is no bargain:)

What's the cpu in the yoga pro 3? The 940m is a pretty good upgrade over intel on board graphics though if you don't do any gaming then yes this isn't a good deal.

Edit: From what I can find the Yoga pro 3 has a core m chip so won't be as powerful and it is 1.9kg vs 1.45kg

Ok then french keyboard and no ssd are still enough to put me off. Yoga also has a better screen and tablet mode. And surprise surprise, it does not weight 1.9kg but 2.26lb = 1.19kg
Yoga pro 3 is around 1.2kg - very very light. Screen is amazing, but my two had some light bleed (more than my yoga pro 2 and xps 13).
The processor does struggle, especially if you have a number of tabs open. I ordered 2 Yoga Pro 3's via Amazon warehouse but they are both going back today

Yeah depends what you want really! Sorry I completely miss read the yoga specs lol I don't really think 3200x1800 is needed at this size of screen and I have a tablet so don't care much for those features :P not having an SSD sucks but I feel I can always upgrade it if I want one but yeah it depends what you want/use it for to how good the deal is really and if you can deal with a foreign keyboard

Core M on a 3200x1800 sounds crazy to me but it depends what you want I guess
