This seems like a really good price, though I am not to sure as to how this small laptop will perform.

Good deal for a basic laptop/netbook.

Should be fine for basic web browsing, office etc.

Very good price heat added ...

Just been looking at this myself - heads-up though; I believe the RAM is soldered so there's no chance to upgrade.Heat given nonetheless!

Looks better than Acer laptop with similar specs available earlier this year.

And it haven't got a precision touchpad, cherry on top.

Any good for basic iTunes use?

He great for the price.

Heat.

Can't go wrong at that price.

must resist..

Chromebook beater. Heat

So cheap!

The Lenovo has the older N2830 CPU and is not fanless !

Screen Resolution 1366 x 1768 pixels

Wow, really??

More or less a chromebook, which runs quite well at these specs, although granted that is with chrome OS.
Might be worth upgrading with an SSD due to the low cost of the laptop itself

HEAT!

Quality build, good spec and less than a week @butlins!

Average review...

Tempting at this price point, but are there any other rivals under £150, not Chromebooks...

How much does that work out in total?

Any other alternatives at this price point?

The £5 off coupon is not working!
Has anyone used it and it works?

There is a £10 cheaper version of MSO but it is locked
this version you can sell the key for and it will do 1 pc
+1 tablet for the price, so effectively the laptop is £20
less, then less the extra £5.. if you get £50 for MSO
if you do not need it!

Looks like a good deal and even though the battery life only 5 hours could get a spare for when traveling away working.
Does anyone know if there is any way of reserving then paying in store please?

Tesco's 25+ year old "system" will not let you do that! That is why when you call *any*
tesco help|sales line that is not in the store anymore, the stock is always 18-20 hours
wrong to what they have in the stores!

With click&collect you have to pay upfront and with tescodirect delivery to the store
you still have to pay upfront!

The only way you can reserve one[sort of!] is to actually get through to an extra|homeplus
that *might* stock them, ask to put it aside and then go pay, but the days of that happening
have long gone in most Tesco stores as they need the CASH to survive the shortfall they
have now!!!

Runs a wd Scorpio blue drive... Cant be bad for this money I reckon. Heat.

This may be a silly question but my wife wants a Hudl2 and having seen this am thinking a much better all around performer apart from 8 hrs battery life. What benefit would this purchase be over a Hudl2 at £99 please? As far as browsing, odd movie, etc. Not concerned no canera on this.

I'm also considering one as a tablet alternative. I know it's heavier but I do like keys.

My new kodi machine. Hdmi output is all I need.

Tesco have the screen res spec wrong. It is 1366 x 768 not 1768.

Only thing is no touch screen, depends how much of an issue that is?

Up to 8GB

What's your reasoning for the soldered RAM ? - given on the Lenovo website you can buy a newer variant with 2gb or 4gb and upgradable to 8gb - I'm inclined to think it has two slots ?

I think it's soldered as well. Google it.

I might be daft but doesn't all ram need to be installed in pairs? Or am I in the dark ages.

Can this be hooked up to a monitor via hdmi out?

It can't. There aren't any SODIMM slots. Although this can come in 2/4/8gb memory configurations, the RAM is soldered onto the motherboard at the manufacturing stage.
Edited by: "Picard123" 9th Apr 2015

I'd say that its memory isn't upgradable. you're stuck with 2GB if that's what it comes with.
I'm basing that statement upon the Lenovo HMM for the product

The memory upgrade path for this laptop would cost you more than buying another new laptop.
It consists of sending it back to Lenovo for them to put in another motherboard with more RAM soldered to it.
