Curry’s/PC World state this laptop has been reduced by £150. Thinking about getting a couple for my kids for Christmas. They’re only 10 yrs old and this seems decent? No full HD screens at this price. Any thoughts?

How about a chromebook? Acer R11 4GB version with Google play and touchscreen IPS not TN like this one. Long battery life.

Big, heavy, plastic, and a poor screen. 1366 x 768 screen is terrible. No SSD and a basic CPU, for 299.99 this laptop has no redeeming factors. Budget laptops are always a compromise, but this one is all downs, no ups.

Difficult to find a full HD screen at this price. Very few - if any - laptops at this price have a SSD. They are eMMC which is similar to an SD card. Plus an SSD would fill up in no time. This one has an Intel CPU TOO. So contrary to what you say bytemaster, this is all ups and no downs - unless you can show me better? Cheers.

As usual total conflict. I've just ditched my Acer 13 Chromebook for £100. The freaks at google decided not to upgrade it to Play Store. And 32gb is having a laff. Who invented this crummy idea?

To be honest my biggest gripe with this laptop is the display. If you want/need a lot of storage on a budget a spinner is still the best value storage. My recommendation for a budget laptop has to be the Jumper EzBook 3 Pro. This has an excellent 1920x1080 screen and a well built Aluminium body., weighing 1.4KG It uses the N3450 Intel CPU which has similar performance to the N4200, and 6GB RAM. Storage is only 64GB eMMC so if you need more, and many people don't, then you either use an external drive, or it is very easy to add an SSD. I put a 512GB SSD in mine, for 100 quid. So a beautiful all Aluminium laptop FullHD and 512GB SSD for 275. The downside is very much that buying from China is only for the adventurous.

As a parent, if I were buying for children, I possibly would feel more comfortable buying locally. I wouldn't want to have to explain to a ten-year old that they will have to wait 6 weeks for their faulty computer to be replaced.

As always "horses for courses" . The Jumper is better for me, and the Lenovo is probably better for you. I'm sure your kids will be thrilled come the 25th.

Thanks for your input bytemaster. Yes, I totally agree about the ‘buying locally’ Even though Curry’s aren’t known for their after-sales, at least the shop is only 10 minutes away and they speak English 🏻

My lads want to do some light video editing Barry so 32/64gb just won’t be big enough. I know the CPU isn’t powerful enough for lots of apps but I can’t afford 2 medium/top end spec laptops.

This just came back down to £329, was £399 originally. Much better value than the Lenovo. Click
Aluminium encased, excellent Full-HD IPS display, lightweight and longer battery life.
