Nope.

I have one here and the screen is lovely, keyboard horrific but usable (think Tony/V-Tech lol). The eMMC has very slow write speeds for big files.

Because the drive is so small, hibernation doesn't work so I've set it to switch off on lid close. Sleep mode is a bit of a battery drainer.

I'm going to buy a Samsung Fit drive to see if Windows will boot quicker on it.

There is a micro SD slot but it has a usb 2.0 interface, so limited to around 25MB/sec transfer speeds. I fitted a 240GB MyMemory card with no issues.

Still decent for £60 I guess, and tiny.

Crazy price for full HD screen - ordered.

code is prep2020
looks a great price, might be worth adding that its refurbished in the title
Anybody know if this is better spec than the lynx 12x64 (other than touch screen etc). Just on performance. Want something to stream my xbox to

Considering that this is refurbished, I'd say it's worth the extra £28 for the 13.3" Coda laptop. Similar spec but brand new.

yeah but 13.3 is a lot bigger and less portable and more like a regular laptop.

Not a LOT, but yeah I guess this 11.6" will be noticeably lighter. I've had a similar sized laptop years ago and it was great for portability but the keyboard was too small to use comfortably.

Anyway, just thought it was worth mentioning the Coda 13.3" as a lot of people praise the build quality. It seems a lot better value for money but depends on your intended use.

Can it pump out display to hdmi - thinking for PowerPoint presentations
Guessing this doesn't have a hatch to install an SSD otherwise it would have been advertised being a big selling point.
Don't need one but tempted just for lounging around the sofa when not working on the desk.

You're correct, no hatch. But it does have a slow micro SD slot and 2 X USB 3.0 slots.

To be fair, I use this n4000 laptop alongside an Asus C101p flip Chromebook and the Chromebook is way quicker / nicer overall.
Sold out
Microsoft gave a warning out recently, that the new windows 10 update would be too large for a lot of old laptops.

There's a version with a smaller footprint, I forget the name, but I would just go with Linux personally. MX Linux especially on an item like this.

Unfortunately it's out of stock though.

You'd need to mess with it. you could probably install one of the Linux variants easier ChromeiumOS or similar.

It'll do basic tasks fine but it's very underpowered. But not much point even talking about this as it's out of stock.
Caveman201407/01/2020 15:03

As mentioned by another user, this is out of stock now anyway, and yes is underpowered.

I've linked another deal below which might be suitable. It's similarly underpowered, but the display is bigger and reviews state that the screen is great quality and the keyboard is also good.
If it's JUST for Word processing it should be fine, maybe even perfect. Don't expect to game on it, or run a load of things at once, but if you read through the comments on this laptop thread and the other times it's been posted most people rate it's value for money. It can also be used for Netflix etc

Can still get for 67.99 if anyone still interested.
Nice doorstop...

But that is mad you can get a laptop for £60.
OOS now, which is a good thing as I didn't need it - I was going to buy one just to test the Xbox streaming service - cheaper than buying a 1080p monitor!

I would recommend the slightly more expensive 13.3 inch one as the keyboard will be bigger to type on and if you're going to be in front of a screen for a long time the bigger the better.

This processor is a 2 core one (N4000), the the N4200 and the N5000 are 4 core ones, which will make things much faster.

I'd definitely spend a little more and get the N5000 one. (£95 with the 20% off, still a ridiculous bargain). With all of these you would need to add a M.2 SSD to get a working laptop.

Nope, but it's only 10" anyway and has touch capability. Horses for courses but I'd far rather be working in the Chromebook! I've kept the Windows machine for tasks that require Windows (flashing phone ROMs for example) and it's more than capable of that.

If you are swapping HDs formSSDs then yea. Might just about be usable...
Although the N4000 at 1.1Ghz Clocked will be just too underpowered for modern day use.
I’d stick to a chromebook if you just want browsing, banking, messing about etc..

It's definitely worth the extra to get the better processor.

Personally I would prefer to buy new. The £88 Coda laptop I recommended a few comments up has a N3350 processor (not N4000) and 12m warranty.

Food for thought. Buyers choice

If buying new would suggest the coda too.

N4000 is a dual core 4 threadchip. With an ssd which is what it’s meant to have, it is going to be fast enough for basics, and even light gaming.

The N5000 belongs to the pentium chipset and is actually very good value for money. It is found in many of the sub i3 laptops found for under £300. The desktop versions of the pentium have long been considered excellent value for money high performance chips (G4440, G4500 series)





This guy put the ssd in and it’s a fairly speedy little thing. I don’t know where this idea of clocking being inadequate for modern use seems to have come from, the new icelake intel i5 U chips clock at 1.0ghz. These N chips boost to 2.8.

Besides, half the chrome books out there run on similar chips, but then it is Chrome OS. It’s a very limited in capability.
