Been looking at this for a while to replace my ageing laptop. For those who have bought one what's it like?
Reviews seem OK on Amazon for it. As long as you don't want something amazing this does the simple stuff well.
Thinking bout one for my folks at the price.
£115.99 @ Amazon (although I guess that's without the extra warranty)

Just wait for someone to come back quoting EU legislation about having 5 year warranty or some such.
can u get this in store ?? is it full windows 10 ?
One comment; the sound quality is pretty poor....I know that's quite subjective, if you get an opportunity take a listen ...with and without headphones... Other than that....it does the job....
I have a 12" android tablet and a 17" windows lappy, I do not need this............ I do not need this............. I do not need this............. Do I? oO
Can it be set up in Italian ie does it give you option to choose language when you set it up to those who have set up one.

Although the idea of these devices is quite appealing, the implementation leaves a lot to be desired. HD resolution is fine for a laptop, but not for a tablet. 2GB of RAM is tight, as is 32GB of flash (which is also quite slow). The connection of the keyboard is a bit flaky, and battery life is substandard.

On the plus side, you do get a full Windows laptop and a Windows tablet for very little money.

PS: If anybody can figure out how to run Android on this, that would be great. Remix OS should work, but I could not get it to boot.

Yes, but the keyboard labels will always be a UK keyboard.
This would have been a good as a chromebook

I had my tablet delivered yesterday and the sound is very low. I've done some reading around and people have mentioned that installing the Viper4Windows audio driver improves the sound a lot. Seems like a software problem rather than a hardware problem with the actual speaker. I haven't installed the driver yet but will report back once I have.
had this a while it's excellent you can get about 5 hours typical use with the keyboard attached or 8 ish hours with the keyboard detached. it upgrades to Windows 10 very easily. the sound is quiet but passable, headphone sound is completely fin never had a problem. the storage is low yes but it's fine for office use and a few games etc adding an micro sd card solves space issues. all in all I use it as my main laptop now excellent machine.
can i put itunes on this & connect my phone? Looking for a cheap laptop just for this really

The only niggle I have with mine, is the fixed position when the screen is attached to the keyboard, under most normal circumstances, sitting at a desk, or on your lap when seated it works great, but if you want to lay down in bed and watch it or place it on your body when laid down, the fixed screen position just does not work.

maybe i'm wrong here but the screen can be folded on top of the screen so it isn't fixed therefore can be rotated.

It's good for what it is, Dont expect it to replace a "proper" laptop, it does everything a proper laptop would do, (full windows 10, fast enough to run most apps and i even managed to play some dota 2 on it!) so even though it can do what a proper laptop can its the size and keyboard that make it less usable, The keyboard is very small so expect to be hitting the wrong keys all the time, the touchpad is ok but jittery when scrolling etc. The screen is acceptable but the size makes it hard to use for long periods, its top heavy when docked to the keyboard so will tipple over if its on your knee (it does stand up when on a flat surface though) I find the biggest issue i'm having is the windows operating system though, i really hate how awkward it is.
All that said though my main laptop is a macbook pro so i'm coming from something of exceptional quality and usability so my views on the negatives may be overblown and it does have many possitives. Its fast for a small **** and runs everything i've thrown at it (even some less intensive games), the battery is pretty good, it has two full size usb ports on the keyboard, very portable, Unlike some hybrid devices its has a real hinge when docked not just a keyboard cover with a flap for a stand so it is undistinguishable from a "proper" laptop when docked.
overall i'm very happy with it, for the price its an excellent piece of kit as a secondary machine (browsing in bed, netflixing, bits of office work etc)

As it's Bluetooth enabled you can always buy & connect one of the many excellent portable speakers available nowadays. I use this with a HP Pavillion & it really sounds great: amazon.co.uk/gp/…top

The screen isnt fixed... Its a hinge that moves just like a normal laptop, Yours is broken if it doesnt move.

TAKE NOTE
The Sale of Goods Act has been replaced by the Consumer Rights Act. This came into force on 1 October 2015.
The Consumer Rights Act has made some changes to your rights to return faulty goods and get a refund, replacement or repair.
In addition, the Consumer Rights Act now gives you completely new rights when you buy digital content.

The Sale of Goods Act no longer applies in UK law. This has been replaced by the Consumer Rights Act and gives you rights to a refund, repair or replacement if something you buy develops a fault.

(Yes i know what your saying is still true as that is also in the Consumer Rights Act but since the Sales of Goods Act no longer exists it's pointless to mention that)

I picked this up when PC World had the same offer on. It's pretty good for the price. Obviously it's not exactly the quickest and it's certainly not a replacement for a full blown PC or laptop. But if you're wanting something for browsing the internet, watching YouTube, etc and playing older games it's fine. Plus you have the advantage of being able to detach the screen.

Plays the likes of Football Manager 2012 without any issues and at a decent enough speed. You can play Football Manager 2016 too, but you'd have to have a lot of patience as it's not exactly quick. Things like Super Meat Boy, FTL, Plague, Game Dev Story, etc all work great. You can even play Half Life 2 with the settings turned down.

The keyboard has two full USB ports on it, which is really handy. I've got a mouse and a Xbox360 pad plugged into mine.

Also, for browsing, it works far faster using the built in Edge browser rather than using Chrome. Chrome can be a bit of a memory hog at times and given you've only got 2gb to play with then you can see why Chrome tends to go quite slow. Stick to using Edge though and it's completely fine.

So this would be fine to use as an alternative to facebooking, web browsing on your phone etc? i'm going up country and just want somethin to use instead of my phone when i'm away from my kickass gaming pc
I got one of these a couple of weeks ago when they were £130 and even then I thought you got a lot for your money. As has been said, don't expect Kray supercomputer speed but it's handled all the basic tasks I've thrown at it so far. Browsing, email, bit of office work etc all fine. Detachable touchscreen is great, proper hinge so you can actually use it on your lap (unlike the Miix3 or Linx variations). Battery life is great. Something else not mentioned is that it comes with Office Mobile which is actually pretty good and handled everything I've thrown at it when I've been doing some work on it. Everyone I've shown mine to so far wants one! (Typing this on it now from my hotel)

Agreed, it's not going to run photoshop or high end games but for the price what do you expect... Perfect for facebooking, emails, general browsing, iplayer, netflix, kodi, office mobile/google docs, skype, less intensive gaming - happy as Larry with mine!

Does Kodi not stress it too much?
What you've put is brilliant and the kodi question is for me, but I want to get it for my dad because he has an original ipad (which he hates, obviously as it's so slow) so I can't get him anything that lags noticeably or will be laggy in a year or two (he only uses youtube/email/facebook/browser).
Do you feel the build of it does enough to not be laggy in any way that is noticeable?

There's much worse out there running Kodi just fine (Raspberry Pi for example). Playback will use hardware acceleration, which will be fine for H.264 1920x1080 videos. The CPU might handle low bitrate H.265
I'd imagine the interface would be smooth too on the eMMC storage... Kodi isn't very intensive in general.

Of course you do, I have a dedicated use method, best tool for the job, one for testing and prototyping software before actual use, one for each OS (Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and so am waiting for a Win 10, one for going out for its portability, one for travel abroad with long battery stamina (Asus Transformer T100TA), one for low energy consumption, M-5Y71, and one for performance i7-quad core. Look at it this another way, a man needs a set of spanners to do a decent job, it is either an adjustable spanner, one size fits all, or a set of spanners. Laptops/tablets could be similarly used by man and woman as for "a set of spanners".

Actually I find this tough for browsing. With Chrome, it quickly runs out of RAM once you have few tabs open. On Edge, RAM use is much lower, but it feels sluggish. Maybe a light weight browser would be better (Opera?, Firefox?).

Word 2010 is ok, but Word 2016 is again quite sluggish. So even for light use it can be limiting.
64 GB version is also available at John Lewis though at a whooper £60 extra using "usefulness" pricing method.

This is HotUKDeals. Of course you need it!!!
Atom or Celeron?
Which is better?
I ordered this last week from JL when it was in stock - then got an email saying it was out of stock. So paid an extra £10 from Amazon without the warranty - annoying.

Anyway enough moaning - it does exactly what I want and well worth the money. Pretty quick, boots up fast. I browse the Web and watch the odd video - it's so handy doing a bit of typing and a bit of touchscreen.

Well worth the money - and if it breaks in 2 years - it's still money well spent.

(sound is shocking - but really good through headphones).
