This got very hot at £139 new a couple of weeks ago.I was tempted then and struggling to resist this one. Anyone care to put me off?
I have had 3 Lenovo tablets from Argos EBay all in great condition but had a problem with one and it has taken 7 weeks to sort out and still counting , apparently they can't fix Lenovo products so they have to be sent to Germany for repair.

At this price I can't find any reason to put you off.

The CPUbench score of 900 makes it worse than an Atom. Slow...

got one of these from amazon few weeks ago , not a bad machine for the price more than enough to do daily basic web needs , this price its a steal. I am assuming its a customer return when it comes to argos refurbs , if thats the case , bargain.
Got this the other week on the Amazon deal, boots up in seconds and perfect for basic things. Advised to unistsll all the crap lenovo pre load it with!
How much free storage space is there after the Windows 10 installation?
how is the size of this screen for reading comics and magazines - i've been using a 9.7" which is a bit small.

They both have pretty low benchmark scores for the processor but the Acer is better.

Not sure for this particular PC, but on a couple of other 32GB PCs, its around 20GB free with a clean install on Win10. I'd guess it would be similar on this.
I can't see where the N3050 Processor is mentioned in the specs on ebay.

I got the £140 Amazon deal with the N2940 processor, which uses marginally more power, but is more powerful and has a much higher 3D benchmark result. That being said, It's a steal at this price!

Then it will be fine. I have a Lenovo Miix 3 which is a really nice well built little tab/laptop. I was expecting it to be rubbish when I bought it as I had never seen one and got it from JL last year. I was well impressed when I opened the box. It is a little slow and you do notice it is slower at populating web pages when compared with more powerful machines but for the money I paid it is an excellent product and suitable for my purpose which was to browse, watch videos etc.

The model is still on Argos website with a different catalogue number, same spec and is showing the processor as an N3050. Some lucky people who bought the recent Amazon deal were lucky to get a faster processor. If only I had know I would have bought one.

I like the size of mine, it's perfect for moving about a lot, lets say on the bed, or going to show something to someone, I constantly find myself switching between the modes and randomly pressing the screen instead of using the trackpad.

When I first started using it I found the screen got glitchy and blocky, when I uninstalled McAfee it seemed to solve it, I haven't yet done a clean install, but I intend to at some point.

The screen is a good size for watching things on, I find most tablets too small, however it is a TF display, and as such suffers from colour distortion from some angles. Luckily, thanks to the multiple ways you can arrange it, you'll always find a suitable position.

The keyboard is a little shallow, but for the size it's not surprising, and is much better than most tablet keyboards, it also feels well built.

For the price, I think you'd be impressed. Yes you can get better screens and RAM, but for a lot more money. If you just want it for browsing the internet, watching films, iPlayer etc and operating Microsoft office (like 99% of most people's laptop use), it's really good value. I do however have an old i5 Probook that I use everyday, so the Yoga is really a back up computer, and for taking with me to the library and when visiting friends. In this role, it's pretty much spot on, and more flexible than a conventional laptop..
N2940 CPU from amazon deal has twice the cores and twice the benchmark from the statistics. Can't imagine this Yoga with a much slower CPU than the N2940.
damn, only bought this from there for daughter last week for £139 Came as manufacturer refurbished and in brand new condition. Upgraded to W10 for her using a USB stick and its nipper than her old laptop so more than enough for browsing and YouTube etc.
I have one and for the new price is a bargain
I bought the amazon one a couple of weeks ago, i love it, great piece of kit, laptop, touch screen tablet etc... Bargain for the price

No don't think you can run Android games on this PC.
There's an emulator you can install on Windows PC's which allows you to run Android apps (called "Bluestacks") but you need 4Gb of RAM, there is a trick to install/run it with less RAM but not tried that myself

I ordered it last time and had to sent it back, screen had such horrible viewing angles that it was impossible to use it in tablet mode, as you needed to hold it at an awkward angle to see anything. In laptop mode my eyes started to hurt after about 15 minutes of use. Also really bulky and feels like you may accidentally snap the hinges in tablet mode as the bottom part is curved not flat. Went for ASUS tp200sa, it's slow and has horrible built in camera, but it has ips screen and the build quality is good, costed £199).

I bought this from Amazon at £139 2 weeks ago and have installed a clean win10, excellent for day to day browsing and work. recommended. v nice as tablet on the train in convertible mode
12 gig once it's fully updated. In face to fully update Windows 10 you will need to connect a 10gig or larger usb or sd card.
Only 45 left!

10% off, see OP
Just purchased. For a laptop for surfing and with the bonus of touchscreen, got to be worth a punt at this price if even just to keep the kids away from the MacBook. Thanks OP.

An 11.6" screen isn't that far off A4 size (13.3") however I'm not sure 1366x768 resolution is ideal, you'll probably loose a lot of detail if you want pages at full screen - you'd need double that to get something similar to the dpi you'd see in print.
If all you want is a good screen for comics\pdf reading then something like a 10" Samsung Tab Pro or S would be spot on.
Just ordered, can't way to try it out. For that price it is worth buying!
Will autocad work on this?
has this got win10 pre installed ? or need to upgrade?
