A surprisingly great little laptop - especially for younger folk or those who only want to edit word documents, surf the web or listen to music. Just picked one of these up from Curry's for my husband as he was wanting a small laptop for Word documents and web browsing. The build quality is great, the screen is lovely for the price, I'm very surprised. The laptop is surprisingly speedy as well, and even Microsoft Edge works well! The other benefit? It has full Windows 10 Home, not the restricted S version. The only downside is the keyboard - it's not awful, but neither is it amazing. It's akin to a Microsoft surface RT keyboard, a bit plasticy and loud.

After updating all the apps, deleting the useless ones [it has no bloatware] and running Windows update, you are left with 13GB out of the original 29GB. But don't worry, as there is an MicroSD slot which will take up to 128GB.

If you want something a bit more substantial, they also offer two other models for an extra £20 or £50 [the latter comes with a N5000 processor and a bit more oomph]. The marketing bumph is below:

The size, weight, CPU and display would make it a very nice linux portable; but, as has been said many times, 32GB is just not enough for Windows 10.
if you buy anything from currys always buy it as a throw away item,cos after 1 month they will only ever repair it and never give you your money back,so if you end up with a poor product it could spend more time in there repair shop as in your house under there warranty,so if you can take out an extended warranty from another company

If it is similar price elsewhere , buy from John Lewis etc . The Curry's PC world tech guys repair in house and try to blame you for everything if laptop fault I had to go with a friend and argue on his behalf when his laptop died. They kept us on phone for two hours inside the store ,won't even talk directly . Will not even let us go directly to HP for manufacturers warranty repair . On the other hand , I had a problem with a laptop from John Lewis , they replaced it with new item without even asking any question. Curry's PC world are worst for buying laptops as you cannot go directly to manufacturer for most laptops sold by them and their pushy staff and rude staff in the repair section. Also if the original laptop purchase receipt is not in your name , they will not repair it and try to blame you as if, it was stolen .So stay clear of Curry's PC World and make sure you don't buy any additional warranty from them , even if most pretty girl is trying to sell it to you because she will not come to aid once the laptop has been sold .

yep currys-.comet-.dixons-,pc world - if they are still owned by the same company avoid them unless you are buying a throw away item or you can buy it from them and then get extended warranty from another company that has got nothing to do with them

Comet have long closed down and had nothing to do with the Muppets that run DSG Currys/PCworld.
In my experience Comet were a slightly better company but compared with PCworld so are most companies.

I have a Chromebook with the Pentium N4200 CPU and it's fine for the light Chrome OS. Don't think I'd trust a N4000 with full bloated Windows 10.
I get why people may have reservations, but the only reason I posted this is because I own one. It’s fully updated with all the latest Window Updates and still has 13GB free. Stick a 128GB MicroSD in it and you can leave that 13GB to Windows. It runs full Windows 10 Home and the 4GB RAM makes this run more than quickly enough. I tested it out yesterday running Edge, Chrome, Word and Spotify together and it was perfectly fine.

I get why people dislike Curry’s, but that alone is surely not reason to vote this down? It’s a fully functioning, albeit basic use, laptop for under £200.

That's good to know SClub. Are there any programs where you have found this CPU to struggle? I find the N4200 slow when encoding video in Kdenlive. Apart from that, it's fine.

Encoding m4v video files in Handbrake is slow, but I have an i7 desktop for that. Same with rendering RAW files in Lightroom. I remote into the desktop for that sort of stuff.

For day to day stuff I've found Edge smoother than Chrome, particularly for sites like eBay.

Do you happen to still be using the laptop now? If so, how is it going? I spotted this in Currys the other week and have been pondering on it, because the display seemed lovely and the build quality really good. I would only be using this as a Uni machine, as my PC is capable of everything else at home!

My husband uses it as his main laptop and it’s going strong. Even after all the updates it still has half the HDD left. He has a large MicroSD in it as well.

The only downside are the speakers, but for £199 what do you expect?

It’s acceptable. No windows budget laptop is great though.
