Looks very similar to a surface pro. It's part of the Sainsburys black Friday deals but dropped in price today to £200. Bargain for the spec

Hi - what store was this in? Is it nationwide?

Loads in Argos at 1p cheaper and can confirm they are built well and work fairly fast from one I tested for a mate: argos.co.uk/pro…774

That looks like a different version the one from Sainsburys is 4gb ram and 64gb drive

This can be the next Microsoft Surface killer. Though Sainsburys and Argos are same company now, prices are cheaper at Sainsburys.

This is the 12 inch . Argos stock the 10 inch


Sorry missed this was the 12 inch one. Hopefully my post will be helpful nonetheless.

DDR2 RAM?

Must be a dodgy listing on ebuyer then, the only full spec I could find. Any indication on the battery life?

Please take a look at photo of the specs I uploaded.

can confirm this is genuine as picked up one in Slough yesterday.
4GB DDR3 and 1920x1200 screen resolution.

battery life is stated as 7 hours on the box.

I got just over 5 hours of normal WiFi use.

200GB sandisk microSD card also works perfectly.

Would love one of these. :-)

can we have the bar code to search stock?

Would it be crazy to get an accompanying keyboard and use this as a laptop replacement? Internet browsing and Microsoft Office mainly. Nothing too taxing

It comes with a keyboard. I'm going to use this as a second device but it should do me for general browsing and office.

15 available in Talbot Heath store in Poole / Bournemouth area.

6 in Cheltenham (Tewkesbury Road) priced at £200 on the shelf half way towards rear of store, model on display still priced @ £220.

Unfortunately the display model was not turned on and battery was flat, so I couldn't comment if the screen was any good.

Thanks I didnt spot it comes with the keyboard. Seems a great price. I know it's a different product but I bought the Linx 7 a while back which was a pile of junk (in terms of using Windows) and battery life etc.

Plenty in the Livingston store - marked as a clearance item so likely will scan at this price in any store as it appears to be nationwide. The demo model in-store was also flat and would not power on so couldn't get an idea of screen quality or performance but keyboard cover felt decent to type on.

Managed to get one of these in West Hove Sainsburys. Only 2 left at time of posting.

Obviously this won't be as powerful as a £599 Microsoft Surface Pro 4 ( microsoftstore.com/sto…100 ), which uses more powerful chips (the slowest having CPU Mark of 3056 cpubenchmark.net/cpu…GHz ). It's an upgrade to the Linx 710/810/1010 line with 12.2" screen and better resolution (1920x1200 vs 1280x800). The Atom x5-Z8300 (1199 CPU Mark cpubenchmark.net/cpu…GHz ) is about 30% faster than their Atom Z3735G (CPU Mark 912 cpubenchmark.net/cpu…GHz ).

A Microsoft employee makes the point about the comparison in his blog:
"As you can probably tell I’m impressed with this device. You do need to bear in mind the price of course – don’t expect this to be a low-cost version of a Surface."

Amazon lists a cut down version of this, the Linx 12V32 (with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage down from 4GB RAM and 64GB storage) for £319:

This has a small number (5) of mixed reviews.

Can someone tell me how they find sound from the device. Ive tested mine and the sound is terrible. On full blast you can hardly hear anything.

Screen is OK. A bit grainy and some light bleed.

Just seen a few in Hendon, London, showing £239 on shelf, but £200 at till.
Thinking about it at the moment

The grain is the screen protector, it comes with one applied and a protector of that over the top again. So even when you pull off the first sticker there is a screen protector under that.

Just picked one up in Hayes, 2 left, they shut at 10pm.
