"Up to 30 hours battery life"

That's amazing if true. Can anyone confirm?
Intel celeron! Not Pentium.
Nice price for an 11.6".

Would love to see a same size detachable at the same price point.

​item description on Argos site declares intel pentium n2840?

Looked good but this is a comprehensive and pretty damning review:

"The Lenovo Yoga 300 hinge and size earn it plenty of flexibility points, … "The Lenovo Yoga 300 hinge and size earn it plenty of flexibility points, but it pays a bit too much attention to its interior decor, and not quite enough on screen and keyboard quality. If you're still determined, bear in mind that the entry-level Yoga 300 is also likely to feel very slow in use so we'd highly recommend avoiding it"

There isn't a Pentium n2840 though only a Celeron. So not unusually Argos description if wrong.
I checked out the HP stream which has a similar processor and it lags... Try and get something with a quad core atom processor.

Playing a 720p MP4 video on loop the Yoga 300 lasts six hours 34 minutes at 120 cd/m2 brightness. This is a light task, so will be similar to (or slightly more than) what you’ll see when using the laptop to do basic work.

32gb sata III, really? Does this even have a sata or m2 slot?
Damn it, I paid 150 for this a few weeks back. It's a decent laptop though, I use it for standard office tasks and it copes alright. Battery does last ages, but depends on what you're doing. Probably the best 2 in 1 you can get at this price.

Is this 64bit.
I assume that anyone who says this is ok for work are joined to a workgroup because you couldn't put this piece of junk onto a domain.

Yes, 64bit; http://ark.intel.com/m/products/82103/Intel-Celeron-Processor-N2840-1M-Cache-up-to-2_58-GHz#@product/specifications
Can't see why it wouldn't be able to join a domain. 2gb of ram and a 1366x768 monitor are nice though.

This 32GB SSD version the storage is soldered to the board and does not have the relevant SATA connection to add/upgrade to a bigger drive, hwupgrade.it/for…260 (translation needed) although as said in the link you might be able to buy a cable that will add the SATA connection but it's not a certainty it would work.

ah, okay. Couldn't work out where they got a 32Gb Sata hard drive from.
Does it have a SD card slot?
Thanks op

im fairly sure thats a typo or it means on sleep mode
I think 'refurbished' from Argos means they just scraped most of the sick off
I think this model was on offer a while back on Amazon and quite a few people said it came with the N2940 processor which is faster. It would be interesting to see if anyone gets one of those on this deal as that would be an amazing bargain.
Hi, i have one and its been brilliant....But with one major caveat- I,ve found it impossible to upgrade to W10; and keep 'running out' of memory- (Even after changing the 128GB sandisk thumb drive I added) to NTFS.....nightmare.....
Windows is the problem; not the device- i wish i could run Android on it!
Ps, its an 2840 Celeron; which is plenty fast.
Thanks OP think I am going to take the plunge on this.

Has anyone received one yet and can confirm the processor?

Are you sure you can describe it as fast, I have a Toshiba laptop with a 2810 processor, wouldn't describe it as fast, I've stuck an Ssd in it so things do load fast, but web browsing is still slow, I use Firefox or edge, and it also really stutters with video over 480p. It's got 4gb ram too.

Hi I also have an i5 full size laptop, and find myself using the Lenovo more, as it has a nice display, good touchscreen, and is happy running Wuaki, Amazon Prime video etc....great battery and stand-by time and .....its cheap so I dont have to be too 'precious' with it.
Not suitable as an main device; but brilliant for the money....how much do people waste on cigarettes/drink in a week....?

I meant to say not nice.

Yet another incorrect spec by Argos to your advantage which is very nice. There would be some stupid people who would complain they got more than they bargained for and even some stupid people who would tell Argos they are selling an item much under-valued !! Well done, that's a decent spec for the money.
Smartguy1

Well done, that's a decent spec for the money.



+1 - Tempted to buy one myself so i can replace my backup X200 ThinkPad...decisions, decisions! X)
Anyone else order and got the same upgraded spec?
Nope, got mine today and got the stated spec 2gb ram and 32gb hdd
thenokiaguru

Nope, got mine today and got the stated spec 2gb ram and 32gb hdd



That's not good
It could be worth buying one anyway. If you don't like it, it is covered by Argos 30 day money back guarantee although buyer pays return postage. If it has a better spec, you win. If you was thinking about buying the laptop with the spec shown above you still win.

Windows 8 though which is of no use to me whatsoever.

I got a Pentium N2840, 4GB Rám and 500Gb hard drive. Seems like a bit of a lottery.
what sort of condition did they arrive in to the people who have one? Were they brown boxed or original boxed please?
Just a shame I can't just order the higher spec model ! - it is apparently still possible to get the free upgrade to Windows 10

Isn't the upgrade only still available to businesses and not the general public. I just tried the Microsoft site and it says the windows 10 free upgrade has ended. It says the best way to experience windows 10 is to buy a new device.
got mine yesterday: Intel N3540 chipset, 4 GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive-great value for money!
