So the actual price is £159.99 if you have any morals.

Be great if it was full Hd. I'll wait until they release it.

hey usually want the original voucher back I'd you're returning the item, or they deduct you if you don't have it.

Morals - Get real! Companies are constantly finding ways of dipping their dirty mits into your back pocket, so the hotukdeal community are just finding ways to dip a little back

By your logic, could you not buy 16 of them, stack the 10 quid vouchers and get it for free?

Do Argos offer a no quibble refund for items bought in store?

Quite right, lets do just a little bit of fraud to take away the tiny profit margins that many high street retailers now take on electronics. After all, it never did any harm to Comet.

Linx gonna be in trouble in the years to come. Won't be able to rely on cheap Atom SoC, now that Intel killed it. Will have to move up to the more expensive Core M series, which means bigger batteries and bigger devices.

It won't work for a start if you return something you have to return the voucher if not you have to pay it back out of the refund. Secondly electrical items like this are possibly exempt from their no quibble return policy.

​Not much of a upgrade to be honest. Guess it is brexit price since pound has lost one fifth of its shine.

Hopefully it has a 64-bit UEFI unlike the previous revisions.

In my experience, it's hit and miss. They refused on one occasion point blank because I returned a steamer that had already been used. Their answer was that it had been used! Doh! That's why I returned it. The manager came round, handled the steamer and left his finger marks all over it. Then he said that it had finger marks all over it. Here we go again. In the end they agreed to a store credit... Which is all I wanted. Now, I open every single item before removing it from the shop. Bought a vacuum cleaner from them a month ago and it had already been opened! Maybe I was unlucky with the shops in Wrexham...

It's a new SoC generation (cherry trail) which seems a good upgrade for battery life and GPU performance.

Apollo Lake will likely be the next one to take over from Atom.

Have you real world experience on this by any chance?

Having stable xbox streaming is top of my list. If it works (doesn't have to be high quality, just stable), i'll buy one tomorrow.

Ta.

If all or some of the product(s) are returned under the Argos 30-day money back guarantee, thereby reducing the value of the original transaction to a) less than £50 (in respect of transactions between £50-£99.99) or b) less than £100 (in respect of transactions over £100 or more), the free vouchers must be returned. If the voucher is not returned, the voucher amount will be deducted from the money refunded.

Hot from me, looks a nice setup.

After all, it never did any harm to Comet.



Comet didn't deserve to go bust, they had the best customer support, prices, website and the widest range of products of any retailer, was a sad day indeed for the consumer when they folded.

I always preferred to shop there, even over John Lewis and Amazon. kappa

No received my refund back today from the original purchase...............ITS IMPORTANT TO KNOW YOUR CONSUMER RIGHTS http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/shopping/consumer-rights-refunds-exchange
How long do I have to cancel?

How long do I have to cancel?
Here it depends what you're buying:

Goods: 14 calendar days from the day after you receive all goods in an order (unless it's for regular delivery such as a magazine subscription, when the first delivery counts). Once you've cancelled an order you then have a further 14 days to send the goods back.
Services and digital content: 14 days from the day after the order is made. If you want to start a service within the 14 days, you will usually be asked to give your agreement in writing. This then means you can't cancel. However you are able to get a refund minus the proportionate cost of anything you have used.
If you aren't told about your cancellation rights in writing, you have up to a year and 14 days to cancel the contract.

Bought one for my wife who was wanting something light but she also needs full function office apps so Android and iPad just don't make the cut. It's a canny bit of kit. Chucked office on, it does what my wife needs in terms of Word, Excel, Outlook etc and is portable enough for her to carry to offices she works out of. If she's happy, I'm happy! I notice it's gone up a tenner now. I didn't bother with the rigmarole of taking it back and re-buying but with Christmas coming up I'm sure the £10 voucher will come in for something soon.

Quick update.....i did not get Pokemon Go to run on the Android emulator. But on the plus side all the other Android apps work

Cherry-trail is a nice boost cpu/gpu wise but still clearly worse than Core i. 32-bit Windows would be better given the limited ram (2gb).

Duracell was obviously lucky on the voucher (not having to give back or refund being reduced by £10) since he wasn't entitled to it. Argos state clearly and it's common sense. If not then heck, why not buy 10, refund them and get yourself a free one! ;-)

Just a quick update, this is available at Amazon for £199.65. CCL have it for £190.54, Argos seem to be selling this cheap even at the new higher price of £169.99. Having used it and my wife using it, it's a great little device and for the money, seems a cracking deal. By the way, I purchased this slip case for it and it fits nicely:

Update: Having unpacked the ones we bought at work, it's 32-bit Windows. Although the CPU supports 64-bit (like most Atoms) the BIOS/UEFI is 32-bit only. Won't matter for most I'm sure but does mean we have to create a whole new image :-(

Adam, I have just double checked this and you are right. I will edit post.
I also have noticed that the CPU is 1.44GHZ not 1.92GHZ. Again although it won't make too much difference with it's quad core, but still disappointing. However, this was still a good deal, because they are cracking little tablets/pc!

I bought these two case .
1. for laptop https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01DNENOWK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
2. for durability amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

This still appears to be the best bang for buck... unless you guys know any different? Although Argos price has now raised to £169.99 it can still be purchased from Amazon at £159.99.
