Needed a new lappy, and I'm a china phone fan, so wondered what their laptops were like. OK, so it's not got a 4K screen or 16GB RAM etc, but for surfing and YouTube and all that fun stuff, it's more than capable. Mine was delivered last week and I'm really impressed. But what intrigued me most was the M.2 SATA3 slot inside for a really easy upgrade. YouTube reviews say only let down is the track pad, but mine seems fine. So, either they are picky or I'm easily pleased. Mine was delivered in 13 days with no taxes. This is a flash sale and there are 80 left at the time of posting.

Don't forget to order EU plug version.

Get a 14" lenovo delivered tomorrow for £149.
Only 2gb but still ok for web stuff.

​EU plug version is more money, for some reason.

less RAM and older CPU....

This looks a good deal. Make sure delivery is the cheapest (or free), and don't go for the courier delivery otherwise you will get hit for Vat and duty. I have used Gearbest quite a bit, and they are reliable though sometimes slow for pre-orders.
Customer services is non-existent, so if you get a faulty item - tough luck.

Heh, Half the processing power, half the ram, half the storage and half the screen resolution.

Why dont you just use teletext?

Looks a nice device! Guess the only annoyance will be the US keyboard layout, albeit you can get stickers to cover the keys.

I guess we'll see these CPUs in Chromebooks as well soon (particularly the faster Pentium n4200). Hopefully in a replacement for the FHD Toshiba Chromebook 2...The n2840 is starting to show its age.

​Mine came with a standard lead, but with a European plug on. I just cut it off and fitted a 3 pin UK plug.

Good idea

Do not order this from Gearbest! I ordered this on 13/04/17 over a month ago paid everything and it's not even been shipped yet. They've also been selling this product non stop since then with various subsequent sales. At no point have they said there's no stock or pre order etc. I've queried this and keep on being to told to wait 2weeks more. So at one month now I have to wait until week 5 or 6 for possible shipment no guarantee. Please if you must go to Aliexpress or Bangood anywhere else, never had such a bad experience with Chinese seller before, just ridiculously awful.

They say this one is in stock, you may prefer it. Metal body, 6gb ram, but no ac wifi. There may be a M.2 SSD slot as supposedly the silver colour version has it even though gearbest say it doesn't have the M.2 slot.

​That looks a cracking lappy for the coin, but I'd say the Gearbest description is correct as the first batch shipped with no m.2 slot. M.2 slot will be added for the second batch.

First batch was gold, second is both gold and silver, did read a comment that Jumper said all the silver had M.2, bit of a lottery but given the price of £175 worth a risk, the alternative is maybe a refurb Dell tablet for £250+.

​Agreed. M. 2 or not, it's still a good deal.

Just thought if they are still dragging it out and the Chuwi is not in stock you may be able to cancel it and go for the ezbook pro instead, if its actually in stock.

Hi actually thank you for pointing this out I assumed it was the old jumper ezbook. This actually looks good but I'll have to read through the specs and check out reviews etc. This product must not have been available at the I purchased this lapbook.

The pro has a metal body not plastic but doesn't have 'ac' wifi and as far as the M.2 SSD expansion slot goes, it 'might' have it if you buy it from gearbest but you have to assume it doesn't. If you buy from aliexpress jumper store there is a choice of with/without slot. techtablets.com/201…ns/

AVOID!!! DO NOT BUY THIS there's still no stock even though still being sold. Just taking your money to gamble with. Gamble-best playing poker bartering back to you with your own money, with their 3 options of wait indefinitely, swap for something inferior you never considered ordering in the first place or refund. Why are you continuously selling something you don't have in stock? After some googling this seems to be a common practice for a wide product range. Can anyone shed some light or is this just how they get their kicks?

Gearbest have cancelled my order without asking me so refunding less than I paid. Even though still selling this product. They say the product you suggested ezbook jumper 3 is not in stock from them also now. Even though also selling this on their website still. 5 weeks wasted and they've made £5-7+ from me on this transaction and received nothing for my trouble. Refund takes 7-14days so have to wait and see.

I see they are both for sale, but not good they don't say when they expect them back in stock.
