Is it easy to install English windows 10? I would need a dummy guide for it.
You'll need to buy a Windows English license. It ONLY comes with Chinese.

Yes, Windows comes in many languages but this only comes in Chinese, no other languages.
You can download windows from the link below, but you will need to buy the license to activate.

You don't need to buy windows again. You can reinstall windows in English as long as it isn't a multi language version. It has to be a single language version. I've done it twice this year, albeit not on this laptop. You can easily find instructions online

Another thing against this laptop is battery. If you need to chsnge battey then you're ****** as hard to source online and not easy to replace. Considering the battery apparently drops very quickly that is a worry for me.

This is slightly cheaper than the same laptop on banggood, they have it for £525.88 at the moment, but seems to change with the exchange rates.

If I was buying I might lean towards banggood because I've had 100% reliability with them, but for an item of this value I would avoid, because of customs and warranty.

This is actually 2 generations old (6th gen Intel). There is one more after this (Intel 7th gen processor+ fingerprint sensor). Today the newest one is with 8th gen processor.

You need another licence key as the licence key supplied is for Windows 10 Chinese (single language) version ONLY.
Its a long shot I know, but can anyone recommend a laptop with a simliar spec, size and price that could be picked up tomorrow? Doubtful I know but if you don't ask...

That is why it is more money. Don't think it is worth the extra personally.

The licence is for single language but the language isn't specified. Download the single licence edition but choose English instead of Chinese. That's what I did. Twice.

Can't be done. The licence is specifically for the Chinese single language version and stored in the BIOS. If you have a version of Windows that allows you to select between English and Chinese, its not a single language version. I've also never seen a single language English only version of Windows 10 (not that it matters).

At the risk of sounding simple, is that easy tochange? I hate fiddling about with too much. If it was a simple case of ripping it out the back and putting a new one in then I would feel a lot easier.
I wish an Amazon seller would stock one of these at a similar price. Too much money to risk things going wrong for me. But I do really want one of these.
shame theres no English non activated ones left

No idea how easy or difficult.
Great spec for the price, but I couldn't imagine spending over 500 quid on something with no warranty. If I had that much money to risk I'd fork out the extra couple of hundred to get an xps/surface pro/macbook air

Don't suppose you have a link for that £5 licence, do you? I had a legitimate W7 licence that I upgraded to W10 for free when they did it a couple of years back, and now it says it's not activated and can't be activated - something to do with KMS, when it wasn't even an enterprise key. I don't want to buy another key when Microsoft have somehow ruined my key and activation through no fault of my own.
I ordered one of these and when it arrived it was just an empty box... it had been stolen on route. Got the money back eventually through PayPal but it was quite an effort. Great spec - but quite a risk.

Here you go - for a W10 Pro (32 or 64 bit) license for only £2.10.

And here's one for £1.85.

How come if you choose the "Non activated Windows 10" Option it reduces price down to £275 ? Will i then just be able to activate the windows using a key or something ?

Illegal.
Got one of these and I love it. One of the key issues for me was that any trackpad vs my Macs was always rubbish. The windows 10 latest update has made this a precision trackpad. Whilst it isn't perfect it as close to mac as going to get now. I love the dedicated GPU and USB C. For those wanting to know it is fully Ubuntu compatible too. I dual boot. The only slight let down is that the battery only lasts about 4 and a half to five hours. I do use it in high performance mode though so you can probably get more (has quick charge too). The reason this version is cheaper is they have released a newer version with fingerprint and MX150. I am not sure it is worth the extra to be honest.
