Frogger obviously, ideal for uni or just general use (nothing too heavy)

Call it a hunch, but I don't think I'll be doing much gaming on this Celeron Dual-Core, somehow.
Do you reckon removable parts such as hdd and expandable memory slots or soldered to the board
This or a tablet? Granted you get the full keyboard for typing experience but you can get a bluetooth keyboard. Will this processor suffice for a secondary school kid to do reports and webbrowsing?
would this be any good for my 14 year old son?

Sure it would suffice, just don't expect a very good overall experience with it, it is cheap and cheerful.

If his schoolwork includes writing anything on a pc buy him this. If it is just doing "research" about stuff get him a tablet.

That depends on what he would do with it, but in general I would advise against buying cheap laptops for kids, you will get them estranged from computers as various not working stuff will annoy them and they won't be able to play (most) games with friends etc. Rather save up and buy them something decent for 300-400£ which might take their interest and show them to like computers. Like it or not computers (broadly speaking to include mobile devices) are the future.

Thanks. Might be better to invest in a better spec laptop that will last for couple of years I guess.
Personally I'd go for a used laptop for the same money - something like Dell's E6420. I've bought a couple of them, upgraded to Win10 and put an SSD in as a second drive (moved the hdd to a caddy in the dvd drive bay) and all for the same as this. It's more effort, but if you dont need the ssd then there's no extra work. Each to their own though, I just hate these processors when I'm trying to do more than one basic task.

Did you ask him for what? Because I know when I said I want something for schoolwork it usually meant I want it 10% for schoolwork and 90% to play games and this will do very badly on that front, playing computer games mind you is not a bad thing for a kid. It certainly helped me a lot in life.

Maybe yes. Normally 2GB/32GB machines are all soldered but a review says this:

What's interesting about Dell's take on the new-wave netbook is that you can actually configure it with a wider variety of components, where its primary competitors offer very limited upgradeability or none at all. The 32GB of flash storage can be upgraded to either a 500GB spinning hard drive or 128GB SSD; 4GB RAM and 802.11ac Wi-Fi options will be available; and you can upgrade to an Atom-derived Pentium CPU (though again, we don't know anything about core count or clock speed, so it's hard to say how much of a speed increase this will provide).

What we don't know is whether users can perform aftermarket RAM, wireless, and storage upgrades themselves, which would be a big selling point

So are these known as Laptops now then?

This is while you are buying from Dell, you can configure it your specification.

Not when its built.

I guess there aren't any huge differences. Just worded and branded different so the consumers will think its a new product.

Good find op Decided a Celeron was underpowered for me so opted for the Asus i3-5005u (£179) laptop at TD and got £20 off using the code which I was oblivious to until I read this post. Heat added btw

These need to have min 4GB RAM (preferably upgradeable), 1080p displays and removable 2.5" hard drives to be attractive for anything but very basic use. These are just cheap netbooks to compete with cheap tablets...
I've bought it and it can be returned Upto a month
I'll open it up and see what can and can't be changed

The capabilities of the processor and the speed of the e-MMC/RAM are all much improved over the netbooks of yesteryear.

​good luck with that, my brother got an Acer with 32gb storage with literally nothing on it but a few word documents and only has 2gb useable, not enough to update.

An Asus i3 for less than £200? Could you be more specific where you found this please?

Didn't you say this on the last 11" laptop deal?
I have to agree though, these are really netbooks which typically meant low powered, low performance CPU with limited ram and options rather than laptops or notebooks.

At £169.99 delivered, this is coming close although it only has 2GB RAM and I suspect the "SSD" is non-removable and/or actually eMMC: ebay.co.uk/itm…483

When was this? The cheapest I can see is £297 but there are some on tesco outlet for less than £200 with Windows 8.1 and refurbished.

Plug in an SD/XDHC card and tell the Windows 10 updater to use that. Then it'll update ok.

Well you can get that if you pay 300£ or upwards and it will usually be a 15.6" massive one.

I mean tbh if you cam to someone couple of years ago with the idea that something resembling a usable laptop will go for 140£ it would be hard to believe.

This is a cheap machine,if it works for you, perfect, else pay more for something decent.

You can always get this, in different price bracket though.

Why complain at sub £150.
2gb ram with windows is not the best idea....
I works it is a shame that you can't collect it from the store anymore it did in the beginning then there was an error then they said it's delivery only so they charged me £3 for it
