this is pretty crappy, but at this price you can't go wrong - superb present or travel laptop.
Genuinely superb little machine for the kids. My daughter loves hers, uses it for Youtube and schoolwork. It's incredibly light and the battery lasts for *ages*
With those specs it's more like a tablet than a laptop. My 3 year old Lenovo Miix 8" has a Z3735 processor and the same ram and I picked it up for £36 on ebay.
It's a Windows 10 laptop for £110 - absolutely amazing.
£149 at argos, also well reviewed there. Thanks OP.

opened by Lenovo miix 300 i got from Argos/ebay for £90. Said refurbished but was new.

This has the same processor and im very impressed with it so far. Need to remember you will not be using this machine for high end gaming/video editing/photoshop.

Highly recommended!

£89.99 delivered on eBay. Says refurbished, but got my mum one and it was new

Sky are giving these away to new subscribers. My son has just moved out to his first place of his own, ordered the Original Bundle at 20 quid a month with 105 quid Quidco and one of these beauties. I'm sure I read this has Office365 included?

​Why, what was wrong with yours? Mine's suitably snappy. If you get a keyboard with a trackpad then it's akin to a mini laptop, but lighter and smaller (and cheaper). I'd take the miix that was mentioned earlier for £89 over this
very good offer voted hot
I had one of these. The good: cheap, reasonably quick (for the price), very light, silent, good battery life, micro sd & hdmi. The bad: only 32gb hdd (emmc), no usb 3.0, build quality (keyboard flex is alarming). The ugly: the trackpad - woeful.

Mine didn't come with Office 365 but had a Onedrive 200gb for 2 years voucher.

I bought one of these for the missus and have used it, £90 argos refurb as new from ebay, good little laptop for the price, really not flimsy, it's well built. The trackpad also works fine, the only annoying thing is that it doesn't have multitouch for gestures like 2 finger scrolling.

I first tried the Acer Aspire ES1-111M which is similarly priced/specced, but performs a fair bit slower and has a crippling touchpad issue where it just cuts out so that's getting returned. Compared to that which was a similar price this is miles ahead.

Compared to my Macbook Air surprised how reasonably it performs for the money, it was well over 10x cheaper and does fine for internet/email and a cheap laptop to take away on holiday, for what it is a cheap netbook I'd recommend it.

I simply do not understand why the trackpads on lower end laptops are so bad these days .
Its legacy technology ,and should be reliable instead I am repeatedly seeing rubbish trackpads with stiff buttons on modern laptops ,its simply unacceptable.

Is it good for just using youtube, checking mails, for blogging? Sometimes i need to upload few photos and I am just courious how fast is it. I have sony vaio nw20sf i think now over 5 years and still its very good but freaking heavy and too big to take out.

Yes but this laptop will run faster than the Miix 8. I know as I have had a Miix in the past and picked this laptop up at 89 quid from the Argos refurbished laptop sale. Tablet manufacturers throttle the Z3735 to an inch of its life to reduce the thermal footprint and increase battery life. In laptops, throttling is a lot more conservative (this processor's clock speed can be varied between 1.3 to 1.8 GHz). I can easily use this laptop as my daily driver away from my home desktop, it's pretty fast for YouTube HD and even minecraft which it can play at >30FPS. Seriously impressed with the battery life as well, and it's under 1kg in weight. The build quality and keyboard are also pretty good.
This website is odd.

The Asus T100 Chi (1080p touch screen, vastly better Z3775 processor, 64GB ROM) was just £129.99 for the best part of a week. That only got to 500 degrees of heat....

Yet this distinctly average Lenovo is much hotter for only a few quid less?!

Hello mate, I went down that same route as well. Tried the Aspire ES1-111M from that same Argos sale as it has expandable memory (it's a PITA to open but you have a slot which accepts and 8GB SODIMM). Unfortunately I found the Braswell Celeron (supposedly manufactured with a smaller die/ newer process) woefully slow and the build quality was abysmal. Really cheap plastic. Sent it back and got the Ideapad 100S and I must say I'm seriously impressed with the Atom's speed compared to dual core Celeron. Plus it's about 300g lighter, the build quality is top notch, the chiclet keyboard lets me hit 75wpm and the battery lasts a good 7h. No expandable RAM slot here (and anyway this Atom cannot address more than 2GB RAM) but I've added a 128GB microSD card and am actually enjoying using it. It's not snail slow as some complain, boots from cold in about 8sec and runs 6-7 Chrome tabs with a YouTube HD video and Spotify in the background without slowing down. It doesn't have a USB3 port or RJ45 port as the Asus did but I really don't miss these. Obviously won't try playing any games on it as that's not what it's designed for. For what it can do and the price point, I'm seriously impressed.

Haha - that was indeed the one. It remained at a very low level of heat for most of its deal life. I missed it running to 900 degrees though.

(The deal expired before the stock ran out - which perhaps says something about how HUKD missed the boat! Because that was a scorching deal compared to this one).
Great price, especially with Prime Now discount. £99.99 delivered whenever you like. Heat.

What harddrive? This has flash memory I believe.
can i upgrade ram and put ssd on this pls?
Don't be fooled by the HD screen nonsense.
The Z3735F is a very capable CPU, I'm running one in a media server with loads of stuff running in the background and its still really responsive for every day use as well, originally it was meant to be a temporary measure when my other server died but its performance was so good I doubt I'll replace it any time soon, I'm running a higher resolution screen than this as well.

720p or above IS high definition.
