Going back to uni and could do with something portable. I don't like taking stuff for free but if you really didn't want anything for it, I'd make a donation to charity or something.

I've got one and I really only use it for watching videos on planes, trains and connectes to TV in hotel rooms. For that though it's fantastic, put a decent sized micro sd card in it, battery life is very decent. I like mine a lot

Isn't the price £135.99?
price seems unbelievable. I'm all for a bargain but not if its a sluggish, bit rubbish experience. review here techradar.com/uk/…4/2

MIGHT be OK for video playback for a young child
slow and not worth the money

I know what you mean buddy, total landfill, I'm sure you'll have people begging for it though!

Reminds me of the BlackBerry playbook....another flop
Anyone tried stripping W10 back to the basics on this? (Tutorials on places like Ten Forums show how to make it stick so it doesn't re-populate apps on feature updates). OR single/dual boot it with a skinny Linux distro like Lubuntu?
Edited by: "Infrasonic" 17th Nov 2019
SO slow, all Linx laptops I've owned have been SUPER slow, you'd think they were made in 2007 with Windows Vista installed.
I bought this a while ago but returned it as it was painfully slow!
Edited by: "rikkif1990" 17th Nov 2019
I bought one of these last time they were cheap, I ended up returining it (which was a simpe proccess, with a very fast refund) because of awful trackpad problems, which made it virtually unusable, and caused loads of apps to open while the cover was closed, this turns out to be common fault apparantly. Its a shame because aside from that it was a great little tablet. Therefore I'd recommend avoiding, unless you want to use purely as a tablet. In which case it's great.

I actually liked the playbook. Really well built and nice screen. Just a shame the app store was dead. Side loading Android apps was hit and miss (mostly miss).

Its the emmc storage on these that make them slow no matter what you put on them. There is no way to change them without opening them up and removing the soldered emmc.

What version eMMC is it? Have they never upgraded it to newer specs?

I agree that is what i use it for,although it can run MS Office, slow to load up but once there it is OK

The playbook was awesome, got it for something like £100 when Curry's were flogging them cheap and blackberry promised it would get the new OS. Can't remember why I chucked mine, think the battery swelled or I broke the charging port.

If they had sold them for £150 in the beginning they'd still be a major player right now as it was light years ahead of the iPad, just needed better apps and an easier way to develop. Instead it was launched half finished and way over priced.

Doesn't look like it.
cpu.userbenchmark.com/Com…924

I've just bought a Lenovo S340 CB with an N4000 / 4GB RAM / 64GB eMMC, it's fine.

I'd posit that the CPU might have something to do with how slow these Linx tablets are with W10, especially as it only has 1 PCIe lane.
These aren't as bad as everyone makes out but they do have compromises. Many of us got them for under £100 last time round and they're fine for the basics - I have to be honest though, the keyboard/touchpad is not great, it might look like the Surface Type Cover but it's not a pleasant experience. The WiFi adapter has a habit of disconnecting after sleep mode and is some nasty generic thing. But this will perform like most other netbooks in the same price range and at least has 64GB storage and 4GB RAM.
Stick Chrome OS on this via OpenReady?

That could be a general W10 thing, I (and others) get issues with sleep and hibernate + wifi , corrupted VM's et al (on my i5 desktop).
You could try changing the advanced settings in power and sleep plans or in device manager turn off 'allow this device to turn off wifi to save power' on the network adapter (properties / power management).

I bought one if these last time. Was about to send it back, but did a factory reset then started again. Put a 256 sdhc card in the SD slot to increase storage. The USB port you can put a wireless mouse if you don't like the track pad.
My thoughts are there is nothing wrong with the lap top, it is just that windows does not like it! Try as I might it won't recalibrate properly, which means the touch screen is out of sync and therefore useless as a tablet. But as a laptop it is fine.
Never again would I buy anything Windows 10 and only 4GB/64GB.

Played avi files right out the box though. Handy for films on the go. It was rubbish at everything else and should never have been £400 but when it dropped to £129 it was good as a portable media player

I recently formatted and reinstalled my old Gateway P6860FX gaming laptop, of 2008 vintage with Vista after fitting an SSD.

I was amazed at how snappy it still is but disappointed that Steam no longer supports Vista...

Updating to later OS's gives driver issues, unfortunately...

That's all I used the playbook for too...
Ordered this yesterday arrived today, so far it seems pretty good. Perfect sized screen for me, for commuting etc. Has USB and hdmi ports and touchscreen is great too! Used it to watch a movie in bed - was great. Speakers are a little quiet but do the job. I use it mostly without the keyboard as that's the standout feature for me I guess - windows 10 on a 12.5 inch tablet 🤪
