I believe it's 32GB
Decent price for this tablet. It's no power house. But it can run several emulators. And had a aluminium body very solid. The controller isn't fantastic but ok for emulators don't expect to be playing many of any pc games though.
Just ordered for my son, he’s going to love it!
Bought one last year. Theyr supposed to be a gaming tablet. Good for streaming pc/Xbox one games. But not very good for playing steam games straight off of steam as most are not compatible with it, or just run really slow.

That said I'm happy with mine as a mini windows pc. Plays all my windows poker apps, videos. Streams Kodi and netflix. Runs emulators ..even N64 ones not to bad.

With expandable memory with Micro SD
Looks great
Heat added for the price. Personally I wouldn't touch it as it's too low spec, although it was launched @ £149 back in 2015...
It appears to have the same spec as the "plain" tablet I bought back then for £30...
Dammit spent too much time reading and missed it.

The moral of the story is: Buy first, read later!
Can anyone tell me if I can stream my ps4 to this and use the controller? I know it's designed for the Xbox but am looking for something I can quickly do some ps4 playing on.....

A brand new (at the time) Intel Atom and 2GB ram for £30? Why didn't you post it here? Would have reached 10'000C and helped many people in the process.

If by "Same spec" you mean an Allwinner A7 based cpu or clone then they don't compete.

These are full desktop Windows based tablets, have decent I/O, 6 - 8 battery life and a great screen for the price point. Granted they are only 32Bit but for general browsing/film watching/retro gaming they are great. The build quality as well is more akin to £300+ tablets.

Happily paid £95 for mine off Amazon 6 months ago and would have gladly paid the £150 on release given the hours i've used it on train journeys etc.
It was posted on here & I ordered it. It's the one that was supposed to come with a full O365 license, but didn't. It's the Linx 8 and had an Intel Atom CPU & 2Gb RAM, it came with Windows 8, but I upgraded it for free to Windows 10. It's been sat in a drawer even since though...
I dug mine out and it's currently charging (it's suffered a minor crack on the screen sitting in the drawer!). It looks like this is the exact same tablet minus the handles - I'm guessing those controls are a clip on thing as my tablet has pins on one side that look like a dock...

I powered it on (and remembered my password - yay!) It's an Intel Atom Z3735G @ 1.33GHz

Was that the Linx 8 deal from Staples? I got a couple of them and a couple of the 10s, expected the 10 to be my preferred model due to having 2GB RAM, but ended up selling both of them and keeping the 8s, despite the 1GB RAM (I am sure the 7 and 8 had 1GB), the 8 is pretty nippy and has a good size and weight to it.

Based on what is above, the Linx Vision is the newer Z8300 processor (which is basically the same anyway, there is very little in it), but also has 2GB RAM.

Like I said heat added - but it's not for me. It is a good price though and if I didn't have loads of tablets already I'd probably pick this up - the handles are removable aren't they?

They are, but I think they will only fit on this tablet (to be honest I think this tablet is much thicker than other tablets).

I only bought one to load emulators on to it.
Great Device so far i can run Dead Island, Black ops 2 and MW2 so far not bad for a cheap windows tablet
Just a heads up for ps4 owners. Remote play works well using the inbuilt controller.

I can write a how to on the linx tablet forum if anyone wants??
Mine came yesterday. Really impressed for the price one it had been updated. Streaming ori this morning on it and plays very well. Will have a look at getting some emulators on later, looking forward to having a play
Just ordered. One before it went out of stock

Was it labeled as refurbished or you bought new somewhere else?

When I got mine it was in a brown box but looked as new. I'm not sure the USB cable was the original one as you couldn't get it through the hole in the dock to charge it (but some whittling took care of that!).

Thank you, at that price it would be rude not to.

Nice, to be fair I am just hoping for a like new tablet and controller, box and other accessories are a plus if good condition as well.
I just found this thread for anyone who might be interested in playing PS4 by remote play on this: linxtablet.co.uk/vie…981
