Found 11th Sep 2017Edited by:"Inactive...1"
14 inch Full HD screen and metal casing.
Pentium N4200 processor
Windows 10

saw this in store today and it looked really good for the price.

Hopefully theres a SSD slot and ram expansion

For the price it's pretty decent, Plus no importing from China unlike CHUWI and Jumper.
Use code TDX-TWHJ to knock £25 to make it £254.00

dont buy...after buying ive realised itsshocking

    I thought this looked good for the money although basic, can people explain the cold votes, is it the processor?

    For the money, UK bought and next day pick up looks good to me... considering if you have any issues it goes straight back to Tesco.

    As far as I can see, the N4200 in this is more powerful than the X5 Z8300 in the recent Medion laptop from Aldi for about the same price. I'd expect the Medion to have better build quality, however.
    I've seen this in store and it has a really nice build quality, at this price I'm tempted, could use sd card to add storage. I wonder if I could use for very light photoshop.
    I ordered and cancelled the recent jumper pro deal - only because of the import issue. This looks a similar spec machine with none of the potential pitfuls of importing. Interesting....

    saw this in store and I was surprised when I saw the price tag. The processor actually looks half decent. It will be interesting to see if there’s a SSD slot and ram expansion.

    Would be interested to hear your initial thoughts if you wouldn't mind after you collect?

    It seems this has a better processor but less ram - struggling to find much info about it tho!

    I can’t find any information about it either even on the linx site!

    i think for the vast majority of users this will be fine. I’ll write my initial thoughts once I have a play around with it. Hopefully they’ll be expandable ram as I had that concern too

    Hi, voted hot for the price. I'm also interested. Is this screen glossy/matte, Is it an IPS display. No reviews at all but customers gave this good rating. Maybe it so new, nothing on YouTube either and where the hell is the Linx website.
    Here's the gold version. GOLD

    It's a matte screen, the one you can squash with your finger.

    I had a good look at it in-store - the spec page says ssd slot - (does that mean inside?) On the underside of the Linx there is only one small removable panel of about an inch square, not sure what would be under that?

    Could be a M2 slot like on the ezbook? I saw the SSD slot on the site too. Hope it’s not a mistake
    Seems like a decent laptop as I'm on the lookout for one. But the 64gb capacity is really putting me of??

    SD card slot helps with that and if it does have an SSD slot like advertised it wouldn't be an issue.
    Processor is better than the N3450 which is the one in the Jumper Ezbook/Bben deals which have been posted recently. The fact people are mentioning a hatch on the bottom and the description mentions an SSD slot, I would guess this has an M2 slot as it looks similar to the Jumper laptops which have one there. I would guess RAM won't be upgradeable though. Very tempted if it does indeed have an M2 slot. Look forward to hearing initial thoughts from any posters.
    It must be an m2 slot on the bottom. The laptop is physically exactly the same as this one.

    I am tempted by this but it's whether it's worth the extra £85 over the Ezbook pro, which has slightly worse processor but more RAM and an IPS display. Of course being a trusted UK seller is a huge advantage for the Linx but you're talking about a 50% higher price for the privilege.

    You may potentially be hit with customs fees from China though. I do think the better processor and the fact you’re buying from a reputable seller is worth the extra money

    It's definitely something to mull over. Will be interested to hear your impressions of the machine.

    Confirmed M2 ssd and micro SD card up to 200gb supported. Feels quite nice but not booted it up yet as I am at work. Also available in gold colour I noticed.

    First impressions are excellent! Really good quality build and screen. Definitely would recommend adding a M2 SSD to improve the speed and storage as I don’t think the emmc is helping at all

    It’s good for the price! Obviously it’s not going to blow people away though.

    trackpad isn’t very good though. Hopefully I’ll try and update the drivers

    I’m starting a fresh install of W10 so let’s see if that helps. Reinstalled the drivers with no luck. If I can’t fix it then I’m sending it back.

    I can’t find any drivers for it, the linx website has no drivers and the windows genetic one is nowhere to be seen. Doing a fresh install as we speak

    this is the problem with small brands with linx and the Chinese ones. If they work they’re great but if not then it’s a pain.

    Have a feeling I’ll be taking it back in all honesty. The WiFi isn’t AC and 5GHZ in addition to the trackpad if I can’t fix it. It’s a beautiful looking machine but unfortunately problems actually using it
