This whole system costs about the same as a copy of Windows 10 (included). Can't really expect an i3 in a system that costs less than an i3...

1. i don't own a iphone. My gf has a iphone and a ipad yet she does not have or need a pc or imac to use her devices. 2.When it arrived it had the snow leopard OS installed which dates back to 2009 as far i know and yet i still manged to install multiple apps to make it useful direct from the developers websites so even if you loose the app store in the future its no big deal as there's god knows how many apps already for el captan which i upgraded it to. Tell me something do you download all your apps from Microsoft's poor excuse for a app store on your PC or do you download most of them direct from the developers webpage like most people like myself and the people i know? Example VLC media player - you can get the player from there website for pretty much every mac OS that was released.There far more ways than just the App stores on both systems to download what you want otherwise people would of stopped using windows xp and other outdated OS a very long time ago.If all else fails you could always download older versions of apps off torrent sites so your not left with your ass waving in the wind ;)

A good if potentially expensive solution is to use a router that can do the VPN duties including kill switch equivalent. I have a PC Engines based PFSense router and use with Private Internet Access. No wireless but I use a cheap bridged mesh system for that. That way you can protect everything on the network and get failsafe protection from exposure if the VPN goes down. It is not a killswitch as such and is 100 percent reliable. I don't do anything naughty but I don't like privacy violation so tend to use a VPN. I have an APU2 board but the ALIX board are cheap and 'might' meet your requirements depending on internet speed. A bit of fun to play about with if nothing else. I have seen PC Engines stuff on eBay for peanuts. Of course you can use any old desktop with another network card but my environmental sensitivity doesn't like the wasted electricity and it also is a big ugly eyesore. Most domestic routers are very basic, hard to go back when you have used a proper router :) Not for everyone as it is not plug and play though. If you play with Linux then this sort of playing about might be up your street - and it really is not too complex.

jameshothothot

Ha :) I sometimes use my old samsung nc10 netbooks for torrent and media server (no transcoding) but they got screwed up when I stupidly did an lubuntu update which killed my samba network sharing and I could not be bothered to set up samba and the vpn kill switch again! I used to use torguard which had a linux app but then switched to privatevpn which required some config hacks for kill switch. Damn lubuntu upgrade!

I had a Dell t7500 for a bit. Was fine but a big ugly case. Bought it dirt cheap and now have sold it on. But for a cheap reasonably specced machine for general use it is hard to complain too much. I bought a couple of tiny atom powered PCs for VERY little on eBay. Can't remember the brand but they were very well put together. Not really sure why I bought them? I think I intended to use one as an always on web server for very low volume and the other for bittorrent. Anyway they were too slow even for that! Probably perfect for display boards or terminals or something. Put them back on eBay and people lapped them up at a hefty premium - should have bought more. God knows what they thought when they tried booting Windows.... Just goes to show people don't do their research very well. For people who want a small pc the Lenovo Tiny series are not a bad buy. I have an I5 and it is a great little desktop for everyday office / browsing duty. Can be bought on ebay for reasonable money. Much better value than Intel nuc in my opinion and very well built. Way better than this deal.

mugen6

I wouldn't buy a 7th gen Intel system brand new unless it was very cheap. 8th gen Intel is a big jump in performance and future proofed. Or even 2nd gen AMD Ryzen if you fancy something different. Also 1TB spinning disk is no good. SSD should be the standard across all PCs in 2018.

Avoid buying from Lenovo direct at all costs. I purchased a laptop the mouse pad was dead on delivery. The build is super cheap and the only advise they give is to fo a full system restore back to manufacture. If I had purchased from currys or pc world I would have demanded a full refund not what you expect when purchasing a purported new item .also when using hdmi the external sound is full of drop out and time lags

Bigspin

ACER swift is actually really good. I might add bigger ssd. However Acer aspire with Ryzen 5 2500u is bit better in multicore benchmarks and graphic card is definitely "much" better than Intel on board graphics. https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/amd-ryzen-mobile-vs-intel-8th-gen-core

ItzMrFitz

I just picked up the Swift 3 for myself, actually. https://www.argos.co.uk/product/8155012 I've only tested LoL on it but it runs that very well even on high settings. That Aspire looks good though for the price. What do you think my machine would be capable of running? I understand the Ryzen chips have much better intergrated gfx.

Bigspin

Have you looked at Acer Aspire 3? Check below and if you decide to buy make sure to add a M. 2 SSD (may cost extra £40-60) and it'll beat i7 7500u and 940mx. https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/acer-aspire-3-15-6-amd-ryzen-5-laptop-1-tb-hdd-black-10180944-pdt.html

Bigspin

Ryzen 5 2500u will beat i7 7500u cpu and 940mx while consuming less power (Ryzen cpu might be slightly slower in single thread works but definitely beat multicore)

RAMRaider1

'Caveat Emptor' or 'Horses for Courses' ! Briefly perusing the technical specification of this decidedly mediocre Fujitsu Lifebook E458 laptop, I still find it an utterly contemptible situation that currently there STILL appear to be a few neanderthal manufacturers & retailers out there deliberately dragging their feet, who believe that nowadays it's completely acceptable to flog inferior products with such lousy 15.6" 1366 x 768 pixel resolution screens ! I mean jeez guys, isn't it about time that you all woke up and smelt the coffee ? Oh and by the way I'm afraid that at least in MY book, a miserable 1366 x 768 pixel screen on a 15.6" portable is by it's very nature categorically neither HD nor full HD…..no way, José !!! Methinks a quick email or phone call to your local Trading Standards office ought to sort out that little problem and force the retailers to amend their advertising accordingly….. Admittedly a quick search online revealed that other Fujitsu models further up their 'food chain' can be specified with full HD screens, but obviously they are priced higher accordingly, so regrettably in this particular instance it's a unequivocal Cold from me…..sorry !

jaydeeuk1

768 wouldn't have even been sufficient back in 2010, god knows why they're still palming these panels off on the public. My first PC was am expensive £2000 Fujitsu desktop. Broke 2 months after the warranty expires. Was therefore also my last.

Al2001

Agreed on the RAM. Windows 10 really should run fine with 4GB but in reality it's pretty sluggish in my experience.

James_Prescott

7th gen i5. They are all selling at this price for the spec. 8th gen is on most new i5 laptop. Voted cold not really a good deal

kerridge0

About ten years ago I signed up myself and gf for the 'Lifebook for life' program, where we each spent about 1k on laptops and every three years get a free replacement for life. So we've had eight laptops now and the only one that went wrong and had to be repaired was the T901 which was a tablet and the digitiser/display went wonky. I am a heavy user and physically mine looked quite worn when it was time to return but they really took the battering very well. So I'm pretty impressed overall with Fujitsu quality, definitely better than the cheaper makes.

Nothing wrong with 1080p on a 34". I'm running 2560x1080 on a 165hz LG 34UC89-G and it's perfectly fine. You'll never notice it in games, you'll get much higher framerates than 3440x1440, and you can always play around with the zoom/scaling on Chrome and other apps if so inclined...

tjc2005

I wouldn't bother at 1080p on a 34inch, I have a 29inch ultrawide which is the absolute maximum size for 1080p on ultrawide imo. I'd save up and spend a little more on something with 1440p.

I have 2 devices with this processor, and while both are decent for what they do, there are some things to bear in mind. Neither will boot 64bit uefi stuff and are limited to 32 bit windows. Probably not a worry for most of you, but a pain in the arse for me. Drivers get broken with windows update on a regular basis. If you absolutely must have windows, these things work ok for a tenth the cost of a surface, but be prepared for some fiddling.

Looking at something like this for use as a Sat Nav for "Green laning" . I'd only have the navigation app installed and maybe Chrome browser . Anyone used this or similar please for something akin to what I'd like to use it for ? Or recommendations for a "cheap" alternative . Electronics don't tend to last that long being covered in water and mud . It will spend most of its life being bounced around too I might add so this seems like it would be perfect . The one I use at the moment is so slow it takes a full minute to redraw the map on Viewranger every time I rescale .

PaulMillardbOA

Got the 10” it’s a good device to carry around as a backup. My 10” only has 32gb storage, so generally not enough room to download and install the larger windows updates. (Feature updates). I’ve managed to get all the drivers, and I use nlite to add them to a windows 10 bootable USB to reinstall the latest OS when updates won’t work. That combined with one drive for files makes this quite handy for my job! It’s not perfect, but it’s cheap and so far it’s reliable!

Considering tablets are still be sold with 1GB having "only" 2GB isn't the problem some portray it to be, having said that this is priced way to close to other stuff that's a lot better, namely the Tab4 plus which has been available for amounts close to this. I'd buy a used A10-70f For £50-60 more than adequate for most users and save the rest.

Rich44

I thought the Tab4 plus was this price recently?

stec77

How does this compare to the Amazon fire 10 HD?

Masteryates

Way too expensive to be limited by 2GB ram and Android 6. Even if there is 7 available now, we are on 8 and there's a fat chance this will ever get it. If I had £160 in my pocket, I'd be looking at a second hand Tab S2 9.7" for the extra ram and OLED screen.

If I was buying a new tablet I would aim for 3gb minimum ram or it will soon be outdated.

Is it a gaming PC

william.batesW8g

It's a really bad option for that, you need a PC with a graphics card or at worst, current gen integrated graphics.

william.batesW8g

No, it's pretty much the worst possible PC for that, even at the same budget, this has no graphics card and a last gen processor, I'd recommend on a real budget getting an older Thinkcentre tower or Dell/HP from a couple of years ago with an i5/i7 on ebay and adding a newer graphics card like a 1050ti.

The 12x64 is the one with a metal body and slightly faster cpu. It is a fair size tablet though and quite heavy, so I'd worry about the flexing on the plastic body version. I've only used the X, so it's a bit of conjecture on my part (regarding the flex on V).

I hope you sent it back to the Shop at the time? (you can perhaps still do so I believe?). Your Tablets' 'fault' may not actually be the LINX Tablet's hardware, it may actually be purely a software one ... As (funnily enough), last Year on a different LINX Tablet Thread on here, similar 'issues' to which you describe was also was documented upon it?. Where it turned out that because of a then dodgy Window's update, it rendered their then new LINX Tablet's useless!! (there's a mad amount of third-party Forum's on the Internet apparently? - where many have cursed forth their grievances of such ... ) Microsoft was therefore obliged to sort it via follow up patches, etc? (but not before several thousands of Window's based LINX customers had already had their Tablet's almost totally totalled at that point. :-( And some Month's earlier I read of a similar 'occurance' thing too ... So may not be strictly a one-off? (so to speak?). I was fortunate enough in that regards when I did software updates of my one's at the time to Window's 10 (but one nice egg, out of a batch of more than 10000+ not so good one's at the time doesn't constitute a good batch? - especially as it doesn't even equate to 1%).

amour3k

I'm in a similar frame of mind to you when it comes to the 'out of the box' usage usage of these sorts of thing's to be honest?, lol. But (also like yourself), every once in awhile, a brainwave hits me to perhaps maybe like 'recycle stuffs'?, and ... We've all been there (some obviously being more successful 'recycling' than that of others perhaps? - myself included, lol). :-)

amour3k

"Recalbox Is a Simplified Game Emulator Operating System for the Raspberry Pi". I'm assuming that this is an OS in it's own right to which it boot's directly from right? (so effectively not a Window's based Raspberry Pi Emulator of sorts instead? - or am I mistaken?). So would in turn allow you to natively run Raspberry Pi 'stuffs' on this Window's based LINX Tablet, but within it's own Raspberry Pi OS environment, etc (if my interpretation of what I read above is correct in any way?). Where you able make your desired usb boot solution in the end for it?, or ... I know Raspberry Pi is not natively touchscreen enabled, but the LINX Tablet's natively are, so how does that fair? (or the OS pick's it up ok regardless?). I have both 10" and 8" of those LINX Tablet's. So wouldn't mind doing a bit of experimenting on too. :-) I already tried Emulating Android on one of them in the past, and was able to run an Android only based Movie App via it (which in itself I found fascinating - and even moreso as the touchscreen elements within it worked as if it was native Android on an Android Tablet ... yes, it did what it needed to do, but did it painful slow though, hehehe). But that was about 1 Year or so ago though, lol). What is RecalBox like in a similar real World usage scenario? (if I can call it that), if you know of any?. Also, where would I be able to get any Raspberries Pi ROM's from also?, thanx. :-)

Fair enough, and thanx for the useful info. :-) And I'll look into the infamous ROM options at some point, and see what's what, etc?. :-)

Best thing is to install retroarch. In regards to complete ROM sets, I'm not sure where you can easily get them these days as many of the sites are closed (emuparadise for example). Btw, the 8 inch tablet lags when connected to a TV but is fine to play by itself.
