The discount code is in the description in red writing on the product page.

This is a really good offer, specially with the keyboard, just beat me to posting the deal...I'd check it out instore if available, as the older model wasn't the best build quality.
Takes about 30 days+ to get your free keyboard, but for the money looks fairly hot overall!

Review here? techradar.com/rev…w/3

Hmm, good one for a daughter to watch films with as it also has an HDMI port which is a bonus at this sort of price!

Agreed, it's a great buy. Bear in mind that review is for the old one with Windows 8 (Being sold on eBuyer for the same price as this deal but without the keyboard). I think that with some of the newer tweaks and Windows 10 this is great.

​thanks, it works now it I'm not sure if it's good. I'll have a look at some reviews fisrt
Anyone have one that their child or 6yr old kid uses for film watching?
These tablets are nicer looking than the older Linx model and the keyboard is sooooo much better than the old one which was pretty unusable.
Does anybody know that the Microsoft office come separately as I want to use on my laptop?
I don't c anywhere about Microsoft office included- am I just not seeing it. if it is there then this is just what I'm looking for :-)

The Office Apps - Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote are pre-installed.
You don't get the free Office 365 on these like you did on the older Win 8.1 model but as above you get the office mobile apps. Its honestly an absolute steal at this price. If any one needs a cover the Targus Formfit case (made for this specific Linx device) is good along with the Targus sleeve. Not so keen on the Targus Impact Case.

There will surely be a deal on this from Staples as it happened last year black friday deals

More than adequate for most users and at this price point there won't be many complaints.
Not that it would necessarily put me off buying it, but can anyone confirm it won't take a larger capacity microSD than 64 GB.
Spec says there are no speakers??? can somepne confirm please.

No Google Play, but Microsoft have their own App Store which has loads of apps too. Many developers now have an app for Windows tablets.

Also remember this has full Windows 10, so you can install programmes just like a PC. Just take into account that it has only 2GB RAM

My bad, programs not 'programmes!'
Please could someone tell me if this will be suitable for my daughter to do her homework?
I wonder why they went with 1200 x 800 again - the "early" Linx 10s (Miix 3 10) had the same resolution but later models had 1920 x 1200, all under the same model number.
It is a decent tablet, but I am not sure the price is still justified. The CPU is ok for light work, the 32GB of storage are very tight (Windows 10 takes up about 10, and needs another 5 or 6 GB free to upgrades, so you can only store about 14 GB of apps and data), and the screen is not great. The battery is not great, and the tablet or Windows 10 has battery draining issues. The keyboard is pretty bad, especially considering how much money they charge for it.

If you can get the Miix 3 for 150 pounds, that is a significantly better tablet (although again only for light tasks).
Put into context though the light tasks you refer to are everything out could do with a cheap android tab round this price plus you can run tons of old full fat pc games and applications, some awesome old games Run on these machines. Emulation on these for old consoles is pretty good to plus if you an Xbox one can be used as a portable extender running your xb1 games.. I can see the appeal of an android tab but these can do way more.

Storage is expandable, and the keyboard is free, there's nothing to stop you buying a cheap or not so cheap Bluetooth keyboard if you don't like the one from Linx.

I would've thought so, yes, for the most part this device is pretty speedy, good for word processing and web searches etc and even watching videos.
Would this play football manager?
really tempted to get this for my daughter. Anyone any thoughts on this compared to asus transformer book? was gonna order it but this seems like too good a deal
thanks for replies

​May as well get a chromebook though if the Windows apps are so bad you'd be using a web browser ? all preference I guess
