Seems perfectly respectable, would happily use a six quid wireless nano adapter from Amazon instead of forking out a tenner for the OEM version, same goes for bluetooth, while I'm at it, I'd cheerfully pay the extra £20 for w/10 pro, and backgrading to W/7 pro (personal choice, I know it's going out of support really soon, otherwise I'd use a Linux distro)

While you're at it, you can easily get a 250Gb SSD for less than £30 I'd probably buy my own, as well as a £5 external case, that way I'd have a backup device for the disk in the baseline machine.

The optical drive is an unexpected added bonus

Performance isn't going to set the heather alight, but all said, for general purpose surfing and office work box, it's well up to the job.

Hot, in spite of it not being the fastest machine in the world.

Seems pretty obvious that it's optional, just as all the others are?

Would this sort of thing be any good for emulation? If so, up to what sort of level? Thanks in advance.

What are you thinking of? Amiga, spectrum, C64, N64, SNES / NES? This should easily do those.

The listed CPU the g630 is socket LGA1155, so could it take any i5 and i7's that use lga1155?
Yes I put in an i5 3570, you can cheaply upgrade to 16GB ram using 4 X 4GB DDR3 DIMMs as well
Could I use this for transferring music off media player to my mobile devices , does anyone know?

Sounds like a comment from 2009 haha but yes it has USB ports so it will do that
Our laptops packed up and the missus wants something to transfer music and photos and I thought this might be a cheaper option than buying a new laptop
Is shipping free?

Depends if the BIOS support it or if Lenovo restricted what CPU's it will support as is often the case. It'll likely work with a 3rd gen i3 or i5 but research always!

Edit: cpu support looks to be support.lenovo.com/jp/…422

Why not get an external HD that you can connect to any laptop?

It depends what you want to emulate - a lot of emulators are available online.
I doubt you will be able to find any 8Bit or 16Bit emulators that won't work on this or any PC capable of running Windows 10...

Heat for the deal btw - I doubt you would be able to find a base unit cheaper elsewhere.
This is a 2013 model, but for a student on a budget it's a great start. The only issue for me is the fact that you'd have to order all the peripherals (out of stock @ itzoo) - you may as well buy a second hand PC from your local classifieds...
For what you would pay for this base unit, a screen, keyboard & mouse you could buy a 4th generation i3 laptop £79.99

Which for me is a better deal as you don't have order the other bits to have a usable machine...

People probably buying this to replace an ageing or broken desktop so will have a monitor, keyboard etc already I suspect.

I prefer a full size keyboard and mouse. That laptop has an awful screen resolution, and a slow processor. I agree that the headline price on this PC is misleading if you need to buy the screen Kbd and mouse, though.
I bought one for £40.50, using the famous "twitter10" discount code, about 6 weeks ago and it's been really good.
Looks like it's sold out

It all depends on what your benchmark is (and what your requirements are!) - keyboards & mice can be found in the poundshop, obviously for people on a budget they aren't going to spend £300 on a mechanical keyboard... I think I gave the best solution for the money. The OPs deal would need another £70~£80 spent on it to make it usable - unless you can share a link to cheaper screens.

I guess it all depends - personally if I was going to replace an aging machine I would replace it with something a little more modern... I was merely providing a suggestion to a more complete solution for a reasonable price...
