Bought it last night, I just clicked on the link and it said I was eligible, don't know how it considers my outlook email account as student, don't remember what I must have done?! Great price if you didn't want the 32GB card.

Fab! Ordered £149.99 after £30 amex credit too plus 1% quidco

Returned mine to Argos after reading the battery life is 4hrs. If that's written on the box, then it will be significantly less

Battery is just under 3 hour send bak mine week ago

I would be happy with 3 hours if I was holding it like a tablet. This is a full fat windows TABLET with FullHD at such a low price, I don't think I would complain.
I heard the screen is very good and I intend to use it as digital photo pad.

Does seem a good price, be interested to know how this runs.. Anybody owner like to comment?

I bought a couple for work as a much cheaper alternative to the surface pro 4 I have admittedly this was from amazon on black friday. I was really surprised that it worked so well. Can be imaged to work on a networked version of Windows. The screen is really decent and weight wise felt a similar to the surface pro. The aspect ratio is a bit odd. Feels a bit like a cinema screen. For light office use and browsing this is fine.

For the money if really is an amazing piece of kit. Would I rather have a surface pro or 4 of these? That's the question. Buy a new one each year. Also keep in mind the 64gb memory is enough if you make use of one drive.

Hope this helps

Steal at £180, the V64 with metal case was very heavy IMO, not sure what metal was used but Surface uses magnesium to get the weight down.

Appreciate flancrusts input from the workplace scenario.

So is everyone eligible to purchase this at lower price? Being a parent makes you eligible apparently....

The reviews say that this is a very laggy tablet

Congratulations! You’re eligible for special student pricing.


I just logged in.

I'm eligible too! Not sure why. I don't need the FREE card so an extra £20 off is a bonus! Thank you.

No just log into any Microsoft account. I used my Xbox account

They have an offer for a free 32gb SD card, plus you can get £30 cashback with Amex. So either this deal for £150 (if eligible) or £170 with sd card.

Thanks, that worked perfectly.

Has anyone had their order shipped yet? Mine is still showing as pending. Called the Microsoft store to find out what's happening and they said it needs to be escalated to the warehouse. Takes 2 working days for a reply...

For the money it's decent in that you get a large touchscreen device. Battery life is a compromise, and windows isn't my thing, but for the cash, very good.

Hi, I've received mine. For the price it is good value (£149.99 inc Amex discount) especially screen (full hd, no dead pixels), ram (4gb) and storage (64gb) and Windows 10 64bit). Loads of Windows updates to install - took ages.

However, support is lacking. I am having issues with the touchpad - I want to disable the gestures which keep accidentally going off. They are incredibly annoying - minimising windows, zooming etc just when using the touchpad normally to scroll and move the cursor. There isn't any driver software to customise these and Windows can't disable them either. If anyone knows how to disable certain gestures on this device please let me know. Otherwise I might end up returning it which would be a shame.

Thanks.
