I always worry with a cheaper laptop that it will run hot, so the fan is then always running. Bought a similar price HP and it runs so hot and with the fan on it makes alot of noise in the room.

I have never used a Mesh branded computer so can't comment on this one.

This almost certainly won't run hot because the CPU is very low power (about 5W TDP instead of about 35W in the mobile i3/i5 chips). The GPU is no more than about 10W TDP under full load. So this should be pretty cool.

The low power consumption should lead to good battery life, but they may have skimped on battery size.

The CPU isn't very good in terms of speed though.

Two year collect and return warranty is a plus point.

I had always thought Mesh made pretty good computers, however I may be wrong but this is apparently just a rebadged MSI x600 - not a Mesh at all. This PC Advisor review (on a slightly slower processor), rates it fairly well; the price in May was £400 and although the CPU was slow and battery life only 4hours the graphics performance made it stand-out from similar low power / profile machines.
