Completely different animal will probably be much slower to boot as it has standard HDD, battery life will not come close and its windows 7. I three laptops heavy powerful beast when with car, 14" i5 for day to day and something similar to this where I want lightweight and good battery life like when on holiday

...in terms of raw specs it'd be the better option, but even with the SSD upgrade it's still cheaper. I wouldn't believe their claims of a 7hr battery life unless you could see it in front of you.

I've voted hot but it'd be the better option.

What's the code? Can't see it in the description. Want one of these for my son..

I can see the code now sorry, wasn't showing on my phone..

Just goes to show how someone who posts with a jokey title and rubbishes the product goes cold, while a clear and sensible post gets heat!. I think this laptop is rubbish either way though.

does this come with Microsoft office please?

We brought a few Lenovo laptops and do not expect much , very cheap plastic , will break just looking at it , and a silly start button on the side of the laptop (on ours , have not checked this one)
But I guess you pay for what you get!

Lenove are brilliant laptops in my opinion.
ive been repairing computers for many years and i can honesty say that they rarely go wrong with hardware faults.
i always recommend Lenovo to people

Ha! A full install of Office would just about fill up the tiny 32GB hard drive!!

Have one of these and does the job I got it for: a Windows laptop I can take on holidays. I have a rather less portable 15" ThinkPad for my primary machine. This is a surprisingly capable device - I just about managed to run a VirtualBox on it. The trackpad would drive anybody mad, but I always use a portable mouse so doesn't bother me. 7 hour battery life is fantasy but it has definitely surprised me with it's longevity. Just have to make sure to turn it off rather than leave it in sleep mode if you want it to last a few days of small usages.

It won't though will it.

Office 2016 suite is 3gb.

Based on my Lenovo Miix 3, you will have a maximum of around 17gb free after the OS install. If you know what you are doing you can get around 23-25gb free.

It is depressing to get a 32gb device though and realise how little storage you get after Windows is installed.

You're right and wrong at the same time. Lenovo business laptops are generally decent machines, the consumer laptops aren't as reliable, most people who repair laptops remember the hinge fiasco from older G series models for example. I work as an IT refurbisher, there's good and bad models, as a general rule Lenovo consumer laptops are no better than any other consumer brand.

32Gb of storage? Surely that is a tablet with a keyboard?

Use LibreOffice - you don't need Microsoft Office.

Both comments are a bit irrelevant as we are talking about a £129 throwaway Laptop not an alienware Gaming rig or a Tosh Business laptop. Lenovo has a higher failure rate but I doubt if anyone buying this laptop would be keeping it outside its warranty period. Its the type of pc a student would be using and then pass to their brother/sister a year down the line.

for what its worth the deal is hot.

These types of laptops remind me of netbooks when they were around! People bought them thinking they would be fine to use like a laptop not realising they were really designed for use on the net! A nice machine and price for web browsing and emails, but I wouldn't run anything on it.
At Lenovo price range for their entry products you will seem to have a higher failure rate because more are sold!

Yeah, I say hot because this is really for portable office use (OK, take care with it!) with an Office 365 cloud subscription. I see lots of freelancers in coffee shops working from tablets or pricey Apple laptops because of portability. This would do the job in the cloud and even if it breaks and you replace every year you'll still be quids in over 3-5 years compared to an Apple, etc. If you know what you need, like Word and Excel and such, then for some this looks decent.

Cold. Bought one of these for £120 on Amazon a fortnight ago

bought one for £160 quite a few months ago. been absolutely brilliant for me. really lightweight with a good battery life. almost instantly boots up when you turn it on top

Exactly. This is not bad, but it is the usual price for a present day netbook. It does not even have a touch screen (or full HD resolution), and current phones have more memory. I would avoid this unless it is exactly what you are looking for. Consider a Chromebook if you can do without Windows.

Have to agree there. Lenovo struggled with Thinkpad Edge 13 panels for a few years. Got fed up with swapping out the replacements.

Not having a touch screen on a laptop is a boon in my opinion. Most of the time you don't use it, and when you do, you'll just cover it in finger marks. Expecting 1920x1080 for £150 is a bit much, and phones with more than 4G RAM will cost you more than that, too.

i thought the 14 inc model of the 100s comes with a 64gb hd?

What's the code?

crazy how cheap laptops are now a days

We having been using Lenovo's at my work for a couple of years, i'd genuinely avoid where possibly, they are so hit and miss, it is literally a game of roulette (we have bought 70+ machines from them). We have been rolling out Dell Lattitude's that are of a similar price, the difference is night and day.

No way, 1st gen i5 is gonna be horrible. Look at CeX, they have a T440 for £130 (last time I checked)

Not really. The 1st Gen i5 M520 is still a half-decent mobile CPU compared to this laptop (Celeron N3050 according to the MPN). Even with a first gen i5, it's going to be far from horrible.

Ofcourse, one being Haswell and the other Arrandale so it's a newer chip (4200) but even so you're gaining marginal increases going from the M520 to the 4200.

Besides which, the Thinkpad I'd trust the build-quality over a consumer based Lenovo model.

Is this pink or red? Don't wanna look like a tool when I'm dossing about in Costa with it for 8 hours a day...................

A 14" tablet though and usb storage is cheap and can be very compact so should be no problem.

Edited by: "morrig" 18th Oct 2016

I've had one - it's more like a Core 2 Duo - runs hot, terrible integrated graphics, bad power usage.

I sold my old X220 for £70 which seemed to be around the right price. A business refurbed one should be around £120, maybe higher if better spec.

Eww that screen

Ah yes the hinge fiasco!!! I had one of those G series laptops, the hinges started to split after a couple of weeks....the shop and Lenovo denied any responsibility and said it must have been something I did.....It was only about a year later I happened to find out online that it was a known fault (by which time I had ditched the laptop as it was virtually unuseable)

What? That's his view and his opinion. Certainly does not warrant this 'big drama' post.

must be hot for a new laptop for £129 shirley!
(or 129bones if championship manager needs a currency conversion)

only ever had 1 Lenovo with a motherboard fault ?
only had 2 with hard drive faults which was probably down to the customer ??
thats less than any other manufacturer ?
they cant be that bad can they !

Have to agree. It does 90% of what your i5 laptop would do. I picked it up the 11.6 inch screen version for £89 from one of those Argos refurb deals and it looked brand new. Battery lasts 5-6 hours depending on usage. Office 2010 runs nippy enough, so does YouTube in HD, Google Docs, Python, iPlayer, Netflix, Chrome, Amazon Video, Spotify etc. As you say it boots instantly as well. I have a 128GB microSD card permanently in, so the 32GB storage limitation doesn't pose an issue to me.
The keyboard is ace, I can hit 80wpm without problems and the build quality being a Lenovo is far superior than some of the other laptops in this form factor I've used. In fact, it feels quite premium. The trackpad doesn't support multitouch but I use a wireless mouse. It weighs just one kilo so you can slip it into your bag or briefcase and won't even notice it's there.
Overall one of the best netbooks you can get in this price bracket right now. Don't confuse these with the older Asus and Acer netbooks with the Atom D525's and mechanical HDDs - these are definitely in a different league.
