Super laptop; I bought one a couple of weeks ago, though it cost me a bit more than this. You can easily replace Windows with Ubuntu Linux for better security etc., though its best to create your recovery media first in case you change your mind.

Unsure what your point/question is?

Doesn't mean they'll work afterwards though...;)

Do you just need a staff number to get the staff discount?
Is this similar to this offer: ebuyer.com/727…abu (£229.99)

Much performance difference? Seems a similar spec.
Not sure, if you're on your computer you could Google the processors and compare
Looks like the pentium is a bit better
Good Afternoon all...
Hoping to get some advice, I'm not too technical!
I see that this laptop is good for surfing etc , though may not be very fast. I'd like to know if I would be able to use Microsoft word on it, or would it needed to be purchased separately?
Also would the windows 10 update not include word? Or these two separate things?
I also need to complete applications online.
Many Thanks for any help

Office is a separate product - you will need to buy a licence separately. It does not come with Windows 10. Office programs will work perfectly fine.

Free online based versions of Office applications are available to use online (and save directly to OneDrive or DropBox): office.live.com/sta…-US
If you just want an every day lappy for surfing emails etc, it`s a good price.
Windows 10 doesn`t include word.

Not much to choose between the two processors so why pay £40 more.
Plenty of free "office" software anyway.

No just key your N.I. number in.

None of which you'll find on a consumer laptop
The HP 350 from ebuyer has a much better processor and integrated graphics, a modern 01/2015 launched i3 equivalent (just no hyper threading).

Whereas the Tesco one has an Atom equivalent two year old processor (slower, less battery time).

As far as free Office is concerned I'm very happy with WPS Office.

​yep, took advantage of it bought this laptop for £151
the clubcard number is linked to being a staff card and it automatically applies the discount. but It has a limit per year and if someone uses it who is not you, you will be sacked. they're very strict on that, seen a few people sacked for it

You need to have opened your direct account and Linked your privilege card (staff clubcard) to the account.

Unless you are staff though, no hope in hell of getting staff discount as lending it out is a sackable offense.

The employee can sign their priv card over to someone in their family, if the employee themselves does not shop at tesco
But Then only that named person is allowed to use it.

Super strict about it all.
Bought 2 when they were £169 a few months ago. Replaced the ram with 8gb and it runs GTA V fine

This or a used Dell E6420? I set one of those up for my Mother, it's standard but I swapped out the dvd drive for a 500gb hdd I had lying around and put in a 120gb sandisk ssd as the boot drive - all up, £130.but if I were to do again if need to pay for the storage hdd...
Ordered one yesterday for collection today, no dispatch e-mail so checked my account, has not been shipped, so I have cancelled the order.
