Linx 8 Windows 8.1 Tablet 32Gb. £99.99 reduced to £69.99 in store. This is a £30 discount at the till - not the cashback deal that's been running online for a while now. I bought mine in the St Albans branch of Sainsbury's at 8:45am and they still had quite a few left. Yes, it only has 1Gb RAM but it's a lot of tablet for the money and feels very fast.

NB: Not eligible for £30 trade-in cashback from Linx. Comes with 1yr Office 365 subscription.

Update: National deal, but only in stores participating in Sainsbury's "Black Friday" event. Unlikely to include Sainsbury's Local convenience stores. To find out which stores are participating call 08000 52 55 00.

Cashback not available as Sainsburys are not a designated reseller.

Great price for a great tablet.

I was ready to jump on the Cashback deal, but my Blackbery Playbook wasn't eligible. Can now sell that on eBay though, so still a better deal overall.

Thats for a 7 inch not the 8 inch

@Jamie_M - that's the 7 inch version which was £79.99 before. I got the 8 inch. Makes all the difference.

Does this come with MS Office 365?!?

@ryo_hazuki - it says on the front of the box that it does include 1yr of Office 365. Haven't turned it on yet as I'm now at work.

I'd read on other threads on here that when you actually click through the trade-in process, the Playbook isn't listed. Still, this is a better deal as I'll get some money for the Playbook on eBay.

@BarGin - amazingly yes. Runs full Windows 8.1, including desktop mode, so it's fully fledged PC. Even has HDMI out, so could be used with a monitor and bluetooth keyboard/mouse like a normal computer.

Picked one up this morning. Generally decent reviews on amazon.

Anyone suggest a decent case/keyboard to pair this with?

Could you sell the office 365 code our is it pre-installed?

Is the 10 inch reduced as well?

Can anyone tell me if the arnova gbook 4gb is listed when trying to trade in

Original Poster

@mrdanphillips - there's no trade-in if you buy from Sainsbury's, only if you buy from a participating retailer (e.g. Amazon or eBuyer) who are all selling it at £99. Don't know if the Arnova gbook is on there - some of the other Linx threads on here might list out which tablets are eligible.

Wouldn't recommend a windows tablet to anyone!

My local says they're selling for £89?!?!?

That's strange. Maybe because it's a Sainsbury's local? This deal will only apply to the circa 490 stores with the Black Friday deals in store. Is there a larger Sainsbury's near you?

How do you check if your store is included?

I'm more than happy to listen to such comments but when you provide no details as to why you wouldnt recommend such a tablet, your comment just falls upon deaf ears..

sold out in Craigavon part of BLAck friday sales -_-

Just grabbed a couple from East Grinstead branch...they still had a few left an hour ago. Great little tablet for my kids, full Windows 8 and a year of Office 365 for £70...bargain. Going to add a cheap keyboard/case for a tenner from Amazon...job done

You might have gotten lucky. The other Linx 7 thread seems to state that Sainsburys are selling the 7 inch for £69.

So this might be a misprice by some stores selling the 8 inch version as the same as the 7 inch one should be.

Why? Have you actually ever used one? What's the problem with them?

Cracking deal for Linx here:

Bought Linx 10 for £170 and got £50 trade-in for old tablet.

Was just in Sainsburys Cheadle and they still have loads in stock for £69.99 at the front of the store.

the playbook is now eligible. i contacted them and convinced them to change the terms (mainly by dangling the number of playbook users on hukd in front of them )

This is a great tablet. Its pretty much as good as a £400 windows 8 tablet

I phoned everywhere sold out lol

Had left in Richmond (Lower Richmond Road). Not located with the other tablets tho - they are at the customer service desk in case anyone is interested.

Did you see if they have any of the 10" version and whether that's been reduced?

Can it charged by a USB port on a TV?

Can apps from Google play be side loaded?

cheers
