It's a refurb but an excellent price for a 1080p laptop. Reasonable processor, similar performance to a 1st generation mobile i5 but only uses 15w so runs much cooler (and probably quieter) and should give OK battery life. Not suitable for anything too intensive though. Also has very basic graphics though so definitely not for gaming.

It has USB3, bluetooth, webcam and LAN port

It has one free ram slot as far as I can see so the memory is upgradable. (based on youtube.com/watch?v=42P6RG4a5EU)

For comparison PC World has the (brand new) i3 version for £350 so I think this is a very good price.

Fair price I presume but buyers remove above mentioned adware.

Not sure how true it is but on the page you linked it says "We have temporarily removed Superfish from our consumer systems until such time as Superfish is able to provide a software build that addresses these issues. As for units already in market, we have requested that Superfish auto-update a fix that addresses these issues."

As it's a refurb and has presumably been back to the factory I would assume the issue is no more?

I bought a flex 10.1 from Argos/eBay and the screen didn't even work. Easy enough to return but it'll take a week to be refunded and they don't issue replacements.

I found this same deal a couple of months ago which went out of stock. At the time there was 10% off making it £215.99 delivered. However most of us sent ours back as had terrible screen bleed. CS was shocking too when I phoned - spoke to a very arrogant jobs worth called Rob who didn't want to let me return it after I fixed a wifi issue (no driver loaded on factory image). Wouldn't touch Argos refurbs with anyone's barge pole!

I saw flex in pcworld whose spec said 1080p but it was 720p ... Pcworld said they will contact lenovo

Refurbs are by third party company based in the Midlands who can't even get a factory image right, so I doubt it!

Maybe there is a reason why it's so cheap then. hmm...

how come you can get a 1080p screen with really rubbish specs for this price but you get decent specs at 400 quid (refurb) with a rubbish screen......................

Or download a fresh copy of Windows 7/8.1 directly from Microsoft, load that onto a USB drive and do a clean install using the license key sticker on the laptop. Probably easier than removing all that bloatware and better in the long run.
