Naw it's not very cheap it was this price when Black Friday was on and it'll be this price next years in Febuary.
Has anyone checked to see if the 64GB eMMC can be replaced with a 128GB?
Can anyone advise if this laptop would be good enough for Secondary school student, Looking for one for my daughter?

You'd probably be okay but I don't think it's very future proof, processor doesn't benchmark that high but the ram should help it with web browsing and word processing at the same time

Questionable claim on the price, full price of £229.99 direct from Lenovo for the 14" model lenovo.com/gb/…076

And a full price of £199.99 for the 11" model lenovo.com/gb/…075

Curry's description contradicts itself. Listed as a 14" model but specs talk about an 11" screen. Hhhmmmm.

It's a basic machine, for some web-browsing, some brainwashing a lá social media, watching some media and some document creation.
The machine supports up to 128Gb MicroSD cards (direct from Lenovo's chat session with pre-sales advisor)

Storage specs list for the 14" model:
  • 256 GB SATA SSD
  • 128 GB SATA SSD
  • 64 GB eMMC
  • 32 GB eMMC

and for the 11" model:
  • 128 GB PCIe SSD
  • 128 GB SATA SSD
  • 500 GB SATA HDD
  • 64 GB eMMC
  • 32 GB eMMC

Not replaced (because eMMC is soldered to the board) but you should be able to compliment it.
I'm assuming there's physical space for a SATA SSD and perhaps a connector for the PCIe drive, which you can add quite easily if the base cover has easily accessible removable screws to gain access (don't see why not). Less than a 5 minute job, but check to see if there's any videos or images of the laptop's internals to confirm that connectors on the board are a standard fit item.

You may want to consider this Linx laptop? It's back with 15% discount.

I very much doubt it. These things are designed to be as small as possible. They wouldn't leave a big empty space, unless they reused the whole chassis from one which had a conventional hard drive or SSD.

You need nowhere near 4GB physical RAM to have a web browser and a word document open at the same time.

Depends how many tabs you have open! My Windows tablet with 2gb ram would see slow downs with chrome using multiple tabs

You never know, it's hardly a goliath of processing power, will they manufacturer different boards for all the variants?

02:30 into it, the motherboard seems to indicate the potential for an M.2 drive. Whether what you get delivered has the connection header for it is a different matter. Admittedly it's for the S120, but You just never know what these crafty manufacturers get up to these days.

On the new Lenovo Ideapad S130 11.6 model I tried a few weeks ago, it had the solder pins for the M.2 but no socket fitted, same as the video above shows it missing.
The older Lenovo 32Gb eMMC machines had the socket.
