show me a £200 laptop with a decent 1080p panel and 4GB RAM

A lot of reviews are complaining it's slow
Not sure what they consider slow.

Looking for a cheap one for my 8 year old . Mainly to pay dirty heights you pooo off the side of a building and get points. Should handle that with 4gb ram. Thanks

so it's actually £160 + £45 (conservatively) import fees with zero warranty

ok so it does exist but i definately wouldn't recommend it. reviews also suggest poor battery life and the keyboard is missing some keys

Initially this machine will serve anyone well for basic tasks as long as you are not multitasking but over time they become slower & slower with updates, thats why a Chromebook is the best route to go down imo

This from the same store and with the same processor is £20 cheaper and would run more efficiently straight away and even more so over time. currys.co.uk/gbu…tml

sooo slow CPU - avoid

This is a terrible deal....

Horrible low res 1366 x 768 fuzzy, colour shifting TN panel screen, only 4GB RAM, no expandable storage, and slow processor.

COLD.

Definitely not a £200 saving, I would be surprised if this was ever worth more than £250. Decent for the price tho

Your information is wrong. Nobody on here who's ordered one has ever paid any import fees with normal post. There is a warranty of sorts - if it's DOA, Gearbest pay for return postage. If it develops a fault after that then obviously there's the hassle of sending it back, but every laptop I've seen either has a fault right from the start or the fault is due to wear and tear after many years of use (eg. HDD, screen hinges breaking etc). No idea what you mean by the keyboard missing keys - it has all the keys you need with the exception of page up/down/home etc, but that's the case with most 13.3" laptops due to the size.

I assume this would be fine for an elderly user. I'd connect it to an external screen and keyboard. Will only ever be used for mail, browsing and viewing photos etc. I'd rather not have to buy a new copy of office, any recommendations on tools to migrate office along with data and settings. I've spent about 2 hours on Google so far searching and tools have very varied reviews. Who has moved a win 7 pc to win 10 including office app and outlook email? Thanks if you can help.

These celeron cpus are terrible. Only good for maybe surfing the Internet. In which case its better to get a tablet.

my information is not wrong - it is a legal requirement to pay VAT+duty on imports. whether you can sneak it through or not is irrelevant. you should factor it into the cost.

its what the review on techradar said - didn't read in detail

Not the greatest of specs but you don't get many laptops for £199. Hot for the price. Laptop with an IPS screen will be a lot more expensive.

You don't have to pay/customs duties if it comes from within the EU. As far as I understand, it goes via land/sea to the EU (where the relevant tax / customs duties are paid upon entry) and then forwarded on to the UK. That's why it takes a few weeks to arrive.

we're not talking about the EU, are we? we are talking about China.

you are incorrect. wherever it first lands in the EU is where the tax is due. you, as the recipient, are liable for these taxes. once within the EU then it can move freely between EU countries.

You really don't understand. The laptop that you order is not sent individually from China direct to your house in the UK (unless you choose the DHL option). It's bulk shipped to the EU in big quantities and held in a distribution hub or the warehouse of a freight shipper for forward distribution to numerous different destinations. Different countries have different tariffs, different exemptions and different tax reliefs on goods. If the laptop that you've ordered comes from an EU country, then you as the recipient will not be paying UK VAT and import duties on it as it's already deemed to be in the EU.

i dont care what you think you know

the law is very clear - you are liable for duty+VAT and there is no legal way around that

if they have some sort of way of frequently avoiding it doesn't matter, the cost should include the cost of import

You really don't understand tax law and how it works with regard to goods from the EU.

Be careful, the storage is 64gb eMMC. They are trying to tell people this is solid state storage, which it is. But it's miles away from an SSD hard drive. eMMC is trash memory like you put in your mobile phone, it's really cheap and slow compared to a drive you would normally put in a laptop or PC.

A big + for this would be up to 10 hrs battery life. Wanted to go for Lenovo 310 but battery life is about 3.30..4 hrs..

You took half an hour just to Google that? You still haven't understood the point. If goods are already in the EU, as a UK recipient, you won't be paying customs or tax on it as it's already in the EU. Gearbest for example don't have hundreds of thousands of laptops, tablets, phones etc stashed in a warehouse in Shenzen waiting to be sent to the UK. Items are dropped shipped or distributed through a network of companies across the world (Shenzhen Global E-Grow Electronic Commerce Co, holding companies, subsidiaries, drop shippers etc) that are structured in a way to provide the most efficient tax benefits. If you buy a laptop from Gearbest for example, the seller is not Gearbest - it's an EU limited company. It's no different to how many other global companies work. Amazon UK for example pays virtually no UK tax (despite having £billions of UK sales) for the simple reason that everything goes through their Luxembourg company and an elaborate company structure that avoids tax. Same with Apple, same with Ebay etc etc

i dont spend my entire life on hukd so apologies for doing other things with my time than arguing with a moron online.

if that's all true, why do people get charges when using DHL?

if it is shipped from the EU warehouse then what you say is true but the cost will be increased as the EU warehouse had to pay duty+vat when it initially imported the goods. however, the item we are talking about is direct from China so like i have said all along:

at the entry point to the EU, duty+VAT is due on the item

whether this is the Gearbest EU depot or Buckingham Palace makes zero difference. the legality is that the duty +VAT is due.

if you had read the link, you would have come across something called the CT system where the duty+VAT is deferred until the final destination (i.e. your letterbox). this is generally what happens when ordering from China, regardless of drop shipping etc.

as i have stated from the beginning, even if Gearbest manage to avoid it the majority of the time, this is almost definitely illegal (or at least dishonest) so the cost quoted should include duty+VAT as it is legally due.

thank you and good day.

Jeeeezus Christ......do you work for Customs & Excise or something or are you just particularly dopey?

Amazon UK isn't in the UK either.

Gearbest are just a trading name used by Global Top E-Commerce Co Ltd Corporation who own a huge multitude of different companies across the world within their company group.

You've been bleating on about having to pay VAT and customs. You're wrong.

If the seller/sender is a EU limited company, then YOU DON'T PAY VAT OR CUSTOMS as it COMES FROM THE EU.

You've never bought a laptop from Gearbest, so you clearly have no experience of them, and you clearly have no understanding of how global e-commerce works or basic tax law. You're must making yourself sillier and sillier with each one of your posts.

Like I've said already it is sent from an EU member state. Therefore YOU do not pay VAT and customs on it. It is for Gearbest to make relevant arrangements with that member state, which has nothing to do with you.

Do you need a blackboard and chalk?

Gearbest is just a business name you dope. There are numerous registered limited companies within the GTECC group that hold inventory with items moved between them, each based in different parts of world. Each limited company is a legal entity in itself. Each has a specific purpose in the supply chain to minimise tax liability or for distribution purposes.

Don't ever apply for a job as a tax accountant (or anything involving cross border business) because you'd fail at the first hurdle.
