You beat me to it, was about to post it myself. Just bought one for the father-in-law for Christmas!

Been wanting one of these for daughter, just not from Very, at the price I've been waiting for too!!

I have one of these. It is perfect for for picking up and starting straight away. Web browsing, emailing, word processing its ideal for.

Why are all the others I can see (other retailers) HDD or eMMC, this is the only one I can find that's SSD?

Just ordered 2 - one each for the kids. 7.7% quidco and £20 off 1st order (again lol). I'm sure they will be good enough for them to play around on!

They sometimes refer to the MMC as an SSD since it's a type of flash storage. All these little netbooks will be eMMC

3.99 delivery?

Do not buy these low power machines which lack RAM to run windows properly. The manufacturers are releasing 4GB versions of these machines for the same price, BE SMART and wait for those youtube.com/wat…_f0

This is a very basic machine, and isn't a full-fat laptop, the processor (Z3735F) is the same as used in the Linx 7/8/10/810/1010 tablet and other tablets. The limitations of the chip have been discussed many times, for example this from two years ago:
hotukdeals.com/dea…370

The processor is basic compared to those you'd find in a standard laptop (Intel i3/i5), which are currently around 3 times faster (a 909 CPU mark versus around 3000 for an i3):
cpubenchmark.net/cpu…GHz
versus
cpubenchmark.net/cpu…484

The processor doesn't support more than 2GB of RAM, so cannot be upgraded.

​Windows 10 is runs quite well on 2gb it's not like 7 in that regard

Watch the video where he compares the performance of 2gb and 4gb. They have already released 4gb version of hp's stream 11 in Sept in USA, it will be here soon. They are probably wanting to get rid of the old 2GB stock here so withholding the 4GB model here until all the 2GB units are sold. Just wait a month or 2 for the new 4GB memory versions.

Whilst your point is valid it's only £99, you could have 2 months of use out of it and resell via eBay, Gumtree or on here for £75 and in that time you've actually had a product in your possession. Then combine that with the new models may be £150-200, so why not take the deal on the table now and forget about future specs.

Good enough for my 10 year olds to do their homework on?

Also available on Amazon at £99.99, obviously no £20 'first time buyer' discount as with Very, but have you ever dealt with Very customer support? Worth £20 extra all day from Amazon.

I don't think they shift all that well on ebay/gumtree, not when people can buy a new machine for £99, maybe get £50 in a few months more like. They are selling the 4GB models for the same price as they were selling the 2GB models in USA, so same will happen here once 2GB models have been shifted. Seems like poor value for money to invest in these in the circumstances.

Grabbed one, pressie sorted for a relative :-)

Thank you! Had JL giftcard so it only cost me £80

cold, z37xx family which is 3 years old now. competent in it's time but you can get tablets with it on for £60, it'll run basic programmes and some indie games but will freeze if you multitask.

need a new budget chip, the atom z37xx and z8300's are essentially the same and suffer hugely in modern laptop use.

I was considering this or the Asus E200ha with Z8300 cpu but in my heart of hearts what I really want is a a i3 Skylake with a maximum screen size of 13" for under £250 but such a beast doesn't seem to exist

Also considered an E200HA as it looks the part, light and robust enough to chuck in a bag and has a very nice touchpad. Sadly, a very washed out screen with poor viewing angles and the processor does struggle doing the most basic of tasks - like opening folders. Not the best marriage with Windows 10 but may fare a bit better with Linux.
The 4GB versions exist in the US but are hard to get hold of and cost a fair bit more, especially if you want more than 32GB of storage. I doubt we shall be seeing those around the £100 mark any time soon especially after the Brexit price rises start to kick in next year.

I got the similarly specced Lenovo S21e in February, it runs Windows 10 fine and it's my sole computer. One limitation is of course the storage space, so I purchased a Samsung 64 GB Micro SD card from Amazon for £17, you can get 128gb for only £25 nowadays.

Looks like OOS at Very, silver available at Amazon - same price. Heat from me.

does anyone know if this is a standard version of windows10. as I would like to use a license for pro so I can enable bitlocker?

thanks

I've run windows 10 on 1gb ram, you talk rubbish

matlock67

I've run windows 10 on 1gb ram, you talk rubbish



​yes, I run it on a 1gb tab and one of these machines, it struggles on both. as long as people realize it's a tablet with a keyboard then it's OK, but that is what it is and they should expected similar performance

It will be not longer avaialbe? On amazon it's also no avaiable.

I have one of these; bought it from Amazon Warehouse recently when they were running the student 20% off Warehouse (needed it straight away for college).

It's fine - it's light, the battery life is good enough to last the day at college, and I can run Word plus a browser with no problems. Keyboard is okay for the price. Exactly what I need for a college laptop. Also it opens up flat, so I can use it lying in bed with my knees up and the laptop resting there

Problems:
- Windows borked itself like a day after I got it, and reinstalled itself. Fine now.
- Chipped very easily on the edge after a few days - I sling it naked in my school bag so that's to be expected.
- Some of my Pinball Arcade tables are slow so I'm stuck playing Big Shot at college
- One of the rubber feet came off because they're VERY grippy and I dragged the laptop across a table rather than lifting it. So now it drops off quite easily.
- Viewing angles are appalling.
- Most importantly: TOUCHPAD GESTURES DO NOT WORK. I didn't realise this would annoy me as much as it does - no zooming, no two-finger scrolling.

If it'll fit your needs, and you can't afford more, it's not bad. And mine's red. Who doesn't love a red laptop?

Thanks, I'll give it a go - if it doesn't work, I might try some other software fixes. I'd thought it was a hardware limitation.
