Check out the Asus S400CB from 4 years ago to see what I mean (it's a better laptop as well than this) >http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/laptops/52405/asus-vivobook-s400-reviewAs soon as I saw this Ezbook I thought this looks like a clone of an S400 or similar machine which in turn is a clone of a Macbook Air. Just not feeling this deal at all, appreciate the post but nah.

I disagree with completely. This laptop is light and portable and USP is its FHD screen. It has a quite decent battery life click (fast forward to 8mins 23s) of 7hr 30mins+. You can also dual boot Linux mint as well (optional). I think if your're a student this is quite good for less than £200.

US keyboard layout


Just buy some keyboard stickers from Amazon or Ebay - they're only £2 or so and work perfectly. For example:

amazon.co.uk/Eng…MS/

ebay.co.uk/sch…ers

You only need stickers for £/$ signs, the # key and maybe a couple of others.

If the package is from outside the UK (not from their UK warehouse) and Gearbest don't insure you against extra charges then it's likely you will pay them.

It's not hard to find information just search on Google, for example >

Intel Apollo Lake was only released late last year. It's a much more modern CPU and chipset.

That Asus you linked to was £700. Obviously a better CPU but with a worse screen and heavier at 1.8kg. This is lighter, thinner, with a better screen and only £191!

The gold versions don't come with wireless AC - they're wireless N (hence the slightly cheaper price).

I bought it and just went for the standard shipping. There was free expedited delivery via DHL which would of arrived sooner but I thought the standard one would have more chance getting by customs fingers crossed. Any idea how much customs would be ?

Haha I love it tried to replace it with a lenovo 100s but hated it and decided to install a bigger ssd in my C720 and install windows which runs great. Just love the look of this laptop and the fact it is IPS 1080p and all aluminum? And the fact it is 13.3" should be great.
No touchscreen. I like the ones with touchscreen
im getting old so forgive me

why do folks buy mid range to expensive laptops if not playing games or doing intensive processor work if these cheap notebooks are all that's needed for most peoples general internet use

e.g. i'm sitting here using a 2nd hand samsung i5 2nd gen laptop i paid £170 for a couple of years ago and all i do is browse forums and shopping

is the power usage from my samsung or say a dell mid range to pro range so much more expensive to run or is it all about the name badge ?

my dell and samsung arent even 1080p fgs

'If you pay three times more you get three times more' or that's what conventional wisdom says, but in this case you pay three times more and get three times LESS! This laptop has a FHD screen, is featherlight and has a battery which lasts 7h plus. Yours cannot hold a candle to this.

Also fanless, AC wireless .M2 SSD slot, full metal build, 2xUSB3

The features and build quality this price bracket from chinese ODMs has made huge strides recently.

Good channel for reviews:

Techtablets Youtube
Really want to buy this but so many reviews mention a poor touch pad
Cracking deal.

Decent amount of RAM and storage with option to extend via SD card and M.2 expansion, decent sized screen with full HD, decent enough SOC that takes the old Atom series into faster territories.

For a day to day, general use laptop, for the price it is very good.

I just hope that they haven't used a cheap eMMC that we often see in the lower end machines that makes them look slower than they should otherwise be.

Edit: Just watched the 2 videos and they have put in a really crappy eMMC in, which means that an M.2 SSD will be required to get the best out of it, which, at today's prices, devalues it rather too much.

So you are comparing the $400 Asus S400CB with an Core i7-3517U to this?

You must be on a different planet.

You just have to change a setting in the BIOS for the eMMC to boost the speed.



Jump to 3m26s in the video - "before" speeds on the left, "after" speeds on the right.

M.2 SSD is still going to be alot faster though obviously.

Very interesting and that does make a difference for sure where it generally matters.

I hope that doing this doesn't stress out the eMMC though, shortening it's life or reliability.
I've ordered 2 of these...however in view of comments about customs duties...just wondering if I should have submitted as 2 separate orders to lessen the chances of getting hit with these charges if the order comes as one combined package...🙄
